He's only gone and done it again! Hot off the heels of his most listened to ever PHUK mix, his 3rd birthday mix, McMo is back! Super energy from the off this week and effortlessly mixing through some of the hottest artists around today. There's a pace to the mix throughout but not so much as to ignore some gentle melodic tracks which break the tension and allow for some blue skies. Highlights for us - Simos Tagias' 'Emotion' (GMJ & Matter Remix) & EANP's 'Supreme' (Original Mix) on Mango Alley and the final landing track by Massano 'System (Original Mix) on the mighty Afterlife Records. Never disappointing and always engaging - McMo on fire lately!
“Two years down the road for Lost In. I'm full of gratitude for this project and how it's reached so many international like-minded, gentle souls who love their electronic music mashed up into a weekly journey. Rather than opt for an 'Anthems' mix, I wanted to produce a ‘Lost In Classic’, taking in all the genres available. Lost In has always been an emotional and deep musical journey and this is exactly how this mix flows. Deep melodies and trippy rhythms nestle neatly alongside soaring vocals with massive melodic techno tracks. If you are already an avid follower or new to this project....all you have to do is press play, let go and get…Lost In.” DJ
We're pleased to present the long-awaited return of our International Guest Mix (IGM) series this month with U.S Producer, DJ & Live Artist - ORTICAAN. Based in Denver, Colorado ORTICAAN has 20 years of experience in and out of the progressive house music scene. Producer, Remixer at JourneyDeep records, Producer at ARRVL records and an artist at Droid9 records. (PHUK Head Honcho Danny Jarvis' favourite label of the moment). You'll hear the quality of his track selection and mixing skills immediately on pressing play. A total match fit for PHUK. Intrigued about his artist name while discussing the mix we asked where the name came from. 'Orticaan, a funny name I know. I was listening to a track called Shubuya by Orkan when the inspiration came. I looked up what Orkan meant, traced it back, loosely translated as hurricane in German. Thought that made sense for my style, driving, relentless, high energy. I kinda elaborated on it to include the AA from DAAZ to run as a theme.' So how does ORTICAAN create his force of nature? 'I use Ableton live to play, I like to use loops & layering of tracks coming in, tracks going out and some extra sounds and rhythmic things to keep it fresh. Eventually, I will incorporate my hardware synths from my production setup to add the atmospherics in real time but right now don't have the space etc...' His favourite producers right now are Simos Tagias, Ruben Karapetyan, Alex O’Rion, Soulmade (AR). These artists match the current tracks Danny, McMo & Garry, our Residents are spinning right now so we couldn't have found a better person to re-start our international series off with. Here's where you heard him first - ORTICAAN
What a tracklist for Garry's special birthday mix. Fresh off the back of his Saturo Sounds competition success, Garry has provided killer proof of why he's so valued on the Resident team here at PHUK 'For this one, I just really went for it and wanted to put something together that I thought ideally represents myself and the style of progressive that I love.' He's a man of few but then.....Garry's music does all the talking! Fire!!
Happy birthday to us! I've had a little break for a few months but still been collecting records in the background - can't help myself! Lots of my go-to artists in here like the man of the moment for me Andres Moris, Kabi (AR), Amonita and Beije. Some great new tracks from The Man Like...Sasha, Chris Cargo and top producing trio Frankie M, Rodrigo Lapena & Gonzalo Sacc. There are different moods nestled together here with lighter spring vibes rubbing shoulders with some heavier peak time tracks in the middle as the pace and tension build. At just over 2 hours (bit shorter for me) I wanted to add my contribution to the amazing resident mixes that are on show this month. Hope you like my mix - I'm happy to be back behind the decks again!
"'These are dark days that we're living in.' The opening track from Francisco couldn't be more apt right now. But listen, this is our 3rd Birthday and we want to bring you some joy and escapism from all that, at least for 60 mins. The tempo is zippy and the bounce is right from the very first track, so move the coffee table or the footstool out the way because it's likely you'll want to cut the rug up to this. Wonderful tech-house grooves combine with atmospheric melody and deep progressive vibes - Francisco's turf! All the big names are on the tracklist too from Hernan Cattaneo, Art Of Trance (remember them), Matter, The Cobb & D-Nox. One thing is guaranteed with a mix from South American born Francisco: Tight, skilled mixing and quality of track selection. Weave those two ingredients together and you have a wonderful Progressive House Birthday Cake. Go on, have a slice - it's good for you." DJ
For my PHUK birthday mix, I wanted to park the house music for a moment and showcase my love of all things electronic. This set is a collection of records I enjoy at home. I knew I wanted to feature "Circulation - Magenta' as this is probably my all-time fav 'dance record that isn't a dance record'. It popped up again in a recent social media post which got a lot of love from so many people, reminding me that we're genuinely all connected through music and records we have a mutual adulation for. A shared experience. So 'Magenta' plays pretty much all the way through. Arguably the finest 9mins Circulation has ever pressed to 12". For the rest of the mix, I dug into my LPs and tried to focus on music I enjoy but rarely get an opportunity to share. Kinda what I'd play for close friends on a lazy Sunday afternoon - a wandering soundscape of moods, rhythms and ambience - my nod to the early 'DJ Kicks', 'Back to Mine' and 'Late Night Tales' series much loved by so many. So what is my set for PHUK birthday celebrations? My love letter to the beauty, subtlety and texture achieved through mixing sounds. Indulgence?....Maybe. But will you come back to it again and again? I do hope so. Enjoy. Nick
Seems a long 2 years ago since Tom first won our competition and became a Progressive House UK Resident. He's become more than just one of our most listened to DJs, he's also become a good friend. An endlessly patient and gentle soul, Tom's mixes reflect his emotions and his experience in picking out very good music. His skills and performance have also improved massively playing gigs up and down the country over the last year particularly. Enjoy this special 3rd birthday mix from our much-loved resident McMo. ‘I wanted to do something special for PHUK’s 3rd birthday and decided to put a mix together that captures something of my love for progressive and sci-fi. Falling in-love with the recent sci-fi series ‘Raised by Wolves’, the opening music to the series serves as the opening to this out-of-this-world mix. Ethereal and haunting, I wanted to capture something of the mythos of Raised by Wolves - humanity’s resurrection on a distant planet leaving a broken Earth behind. Humanity’s new start begins at the hands of androids, Mother and Father. The mix starts gently but begins to build with power and intent, increasing in intensity and depth, much like the story. I wanted to capture some of the beauty and wonder of good sci-fi, with a healthy dose of deep darkness. Peppered throughout the mix are samples from episode one which I hope add to the overall experience. Coincidentally, most of the tracks have titles that relate to something in the series, although this was unintentional and probably me reading more into the creative process than is actually there. Who knows, the unconscious is always at work whether we know it or not! I really enjoyed putting this mix together and hope you get as much from it as I did. May the last track, Light Beam, take you to infinity and beyond. Happy birthday PHUK!’ McMo.

Ivan is nothing short of captivating and in just a few short years, has managed to reach people on several continents. Enjoy, this special mix, right here on PHUK.
Ex-Pat Garry is up this week delivering a warm up-lifting mix - must be that Florida sunshine getting him in the mood! His fortune is ours too as he strides through up-tempo progressive beats that don't fail in raising the dopamine levels. The mix builds quickly over the first 2 tracks and into Salazar 'Aristarchus', a wonderfully bright and energetic number that grows gently into a massive soundscape before arriving at Emi Galvan's bouncy remix of Nick Warren's 'Freebird' out on now The Soundgarden. Hang on! You're only 20 mins in and the tracks are coming thick and fast. There's just enough of that perfect ebb and flow in the tracks that each one takes its time to rise and fall and then re-build. Close your eyes and you could be stood in Buenos Aires with thousands of passionate Argentinian clubbers swaying in the hot midnight air. However, the reality is that this is big muscular, melodic progressive house all the way from Florida and the mid of our latest resident - take a bow Garry - a beautifully crafted, perfectly mixed selection that will warm any UK winter day up!

One of the very first (003) of the mighty BBC Radio One Essential Mixes to air back in 1993. At the tender age of only 15 years, I had to stay up late, line up my 60-minute tapes, keep the volume low on my bedroom hi-fi and hit record. The only challenge was to remember to turn the tapes over as quickly as possible so as to not let too much music escape! These essential mixes went out at 2am-4am back in the day so Sunday mornings were a mixture of excitement and tiredness when listening back. Anyway, expect something special as this was a seminal mix and back when the legend of Andrew Weatherall was only just beginning. A fitting tribute for us from our vaults just after the 2nd anniversary of his sad passing in 2018. Ladies and gentlemen, we celebrate his skills and proudly present a legend, a wonderful soul, a DJs DJ - Andrew Weatherall.
I very much play what I love rather than stick to rigid genres or get caught up in the descriptions of them. I'm reading a lot about the future of artificial intelligence at the moment and where the evolution of human happiness sits as we hand our lives over to dopamine enticing toxic positivity on social media and mainstream culture. The tracks I've selected run on a deeper level and I've had a dig around my record box for tracks that went in between the cracks. It's a deep dive into a sound I like to call 'Sci-Fi House and continues on a theme from my February A.I mix. Pitched at 118 bpm its rich in atmospherics but still packs a punch as the soundscape builds throughout. As always it's all about the journey with meditative rhythms and subtle energy flows guiding you through. I would love to hear what you all think - Enjoy
For my resident mix this month, I wanted to showcase some of the amazing house music I've been playing over the last few months. Those of you who have heard my mixes before probably won't be surprised that I'm not a fan of planning out my sets, I find the most enjoyment from pulling the threads between sounds, layering and creating something new that is greater than the sum of its constituting elements. Restraint is key. And very rewarding. My current favourite slab of vinyl The untitled A side of VWV004, kicks us off, bleeding its low key less-is-more approach over the first 30mins of the mix. As keys change, pads shimmer and percussive elements weave in and out of one another, my focus for the listener is firmly on nothing but The Groove. As the acapella of Ananda Project puts nicely, 'Wandering'. There's a subtle nod to the populist organic styles of All Day I Dream in YokoO and Atish - Atman, a much deeper and more brooding record than many of its contemporaries. I find most pleasure from bleeding and twisting records, quite apt then that by the time the stripped tribal percussion of Cascades of Colour wraps around you like a thick fog, time has stopped. Is it 11 pm? 5 am? Layering and layering Blakkat & David Morales 'Can't Get Enough' is an anti-anthem, a true moment in time record. King Britt and I finally do what the mix has threatened all along, delivering a true hands in the air record that has been in the record bag for almost 20years. Jack had a Groove, and from that Groove came the Groove of All Grooves. I'm sure that's on a t-shirt somewhere 😅 play this one as loud as possible. Nick
I always like to take a short break during January and come back with a mix inspired by something I have seen, read or listened to. My favourite Progressive House has a futuristic sound that really flicks my science fiction switch on. I like to use samples that accentuate those elements and make the listener think whilst on the journey of the mix. Recently, I've been listening to some amazing podcasts and reading some fantastic books. The sample I have taken in this mix is from the voice of Mo Gowdat. Mo is the former Chief Business Officer of Google [X]. His latest book is Scary Smart: The Future of Artificial Intelligence and How You Can Save Our World is a roadmap detailing how humanity can ensure a symbiotic coexistence with AI when it inevitably becomes a billion times smarter than we are. This Mix is A.I: Enter my mind for 90 mins while I'm still in control.
‘’I’ve been listening to and playing around with music pitched at the higher end of the bpm scale. There’s so much crossover now between techno, melodic techno and high-paced prog. Often I’ll hear a pounding techno track and love the darkness and energy of it, and in wanting to create something a little different and harder, I decided to do a 130bpm mix. The opening track by Anna is already pitched at 130 and therefore makes for a perfect starter. There’s something ‘calling’ and profound in it, the gathering of the tribe. The next track by Christian Smith, Your Lovin, takes the vocal from one of my favourite old school jungle tracks by NRG (1992) and gives it a driving techno sound and it just seemed to flow from Anna’s track. Run by Space 92 is another techno track that gives me the chills with its energy. Uour is progressive house but originally pitched at 128, and serves as a reprise but holds the rhythm in its underbelly before giving space to the electronica of Atonement which has an eerie, unsettling melody that gives way to two more driving techno tracks, we’re back in that energy again. Devon is labelled as a melodic techno track and retains its character at 130 bpm or 124 bpm (like Dave Furneaux pitched it) - originally pitched at 127. The next two tracks are actually trance and again seemed to fit with the feel of the mix, if a slight detour from techno. The last track is back to techno with the mighty, ‘Believe’ by Eli Brown- spine tingling power, “You gotta believe in something, why not believe in me…” It’s a somewhat eclectic mix but rather than simply do a simple driving techno mix, I thought I’d….mix it up a bit. Enjoy the ride!’’ McMo

Dave Furneaux is back with a power hour. From the off, it's a fast start into our new year and the first of the Nu Breed of Residents for 2022. Twists and turns and a solid beat throughout makes this mix a tough and tasty must listen.
Part 2 of the biggest Lost In Livestream show of the year! This is the peak time section of the mix. 2.5 hours of hold onto your seat progressive and Melodic Techno straight from the underground.
The biggest Lost In Livestream show of the year! All the very best tracks from 2021 you can remember and all the gems you've forgotten about. Took some time to whittle down from my top 100 but I wanted to make the set flow through the styles.
This is Garry's first mix for Progressive House UK, which doesn't quite seem right and by all accounts, its way overdue. He's not just giving us a one-off mix though, far from it, he's one of our new residents taking us into 2022. For anyone new to Garry’s style then rest assured he’s an accomplished Progressive DJ. That means all the right pacing and energy in all the right places. You’ll notice from the track notes there’s a good splattering of Framewerk used and rightly so. The Irish producers have made some incredible music over the last 2 years and deserved to be celebrated. All the right names appear too, Matter, Fabri Lopez and Michael A to name a few. You’re in for a real treat. Welcome to the sound of Mr Howden. 🚀🔥
Where do I begin to describe this mix? It's outstanding. From using his own Bladerunner DJ tool, to the sensational track selection and programming to the perfect, super tight, mixing that crafts it all together. I absolutely guarantee that you'll play this mix time and again. The flow is perfect and takes you on the type of journey only progressive house can. So many stand out tracks from Arthesia vs DalNulla, Kamilo Sanclemente (my go-to producer) and the superb re-take from Sean McClellan - Believe (Nila Remix) out on Pro B Tech Music. The whole mix was booked-ended by two amazing tracks; Kaiyan - Dancing Shadows & Terry Da Libra - U (Extended Mix) out on Monstercat. Just like Hauer's message; this mix will help you see things you couldn't have imagined. Close your eyes and dream.
How to make a science fiction mix: Dave Furneaux. This mix belongs in Zuckerberg's Metaverse. When selecting the residents for PHUK, we wanted our team to be fearless in trying new things and letting their imaginations run wild with genres simply being the clouds in their blue sky. Dave has delivered this in spades. JFK's 'It's not the critic that counts' hammers this theory home second track in. Take your pick from thereon in. House, techno, tech-house, breaks and back again. Crystal clean groove the whole way through and a magical mystery ride from start to finish. A Wonderful Mix.
This month’s round-up comes earlier in the month and celebrates another Lost In birthday. Dawn Fuller is one of the original members of Lost In and an extremely popular personality in our friendship group. I’m thrilled to have worked on this special set for her birthday, hope you all enjoy the journey - it's a little nod to those old Northern Exposure mixes too. Fasten your seat belts!
Lee has hit the decks once again with a fairly vocal lead set of tracks perfect for lightening the mood of these dark and soon to be winter nights. There is some absolute Gold in this mix from well-known purveyors of smooth and rich deep & organic house. Big guns like Jimpster, D.S.F, Monkey Safari & Miyagi are weaved together gently and intelligently by Mr Scott. There's power in the music as always as he subtly builds into the last furlong with Black Circle's aptly named 'Inner Tension' teeing up the underground favourite from Nathan Fake with James Holden providing his magic on the remix. Lee's 60 min mix does everything a great mix should - taking you just far enough away from your own thoughts and into a different space for the journey. Big high five Lee - and that double Miyagi section - sublime!
As another busy week whizz’s by, we close the month on Lost In November. A special 3 hour 20 mins set. It’s also a celebration of our one of our most popular member’s birthdays too - Richard trout. The first 2 hours is roughly the set I would have played for Northern Texture this month. It’s one to turn up from the off. My true underground club sound in full flow, with some retrospective classics at the end!
Nick has joined us to add to our rosta of top-class underground DJs on the UK scene. Newcastle based Nick is no stranger to the online scene and comes with a massive wealth of musical depth and knowledge. He's also one half of the mighty DEFCON with partner Danny Jarvis. We're over the moon to welcome Nick into the resident clan under his own name. Always deep and always different each time - enjoy the sublime underground sound of Mr Rodger.
