A party without limits! Compiled by DJ Socrates: Road-Trip mix

This time, a "road-trip" mix. Inspired by a backpack adventure through North America, stopping at diners, motels and hostels, and continuing on. Landscapes that change from deserts to snowy forests, raw urban jungles, laid-back coffee houses, jazz cafes and burrito delis, different cultures that intertwine effortlessly.. The memory of that eclectic atmosphere in which the present and the past seem to be merged together; I put that in the mix. Melodious triphop, swing & bluegrass, latin crossover, 60s ska, funky soul and a touch of New Orleans jazz.

DJ Socrates specializes in creating a warm, brimming atmosphere. Moving playfully between the familiar and the adventurous, Socrates makes connections between music from different countries. He builds his sets with a jazzy approach and a generous shot of sunshine, during which strong club sounds can crop up, but where roots and inspiration of the music take priority.
Among others, Socrates plays for Red Light Radio, Tivoli in Utrecht, Canvas & Roest in Amsterdam and festivals such as the Nacht van de Kaap (Night of the Cape) in Rotterdam.
