Outside Realms – New Live Set Teaser

  This is the first run through of my new live set, something a little more upbeat than my usual downtempo.  I had a lot of fun doing the downtempo set I posted two weeks ago (Here), so I decided to go ahead and convert some of the more clubby tunes from my Ableton sets into something for the Elektron …
