Happy Halloween!

Feature artwork for the 2012 Halloween mix

In honor of Halloween and as practice for my upcoming gig I’ve put together a howling good time of a hard trance and hard dance mix! Don’t be spooked as the tempo climbs from 140bpm to 150bpm to end on an energetic note, and enjoy getting your ghoulish groove on to this monster of a […]


Incrementer

Recently I turned another year older, and to celebrate the occasion I decided to give the gift of hard dance to you. Thus was born Incrementer, a mix that goes through pretty much every flavor of 145 bpm I have (industrial dance, EBM, hard trance, hard house, tech dance, hard electrik, hardstyle, you name it). […]


Critical Error 02

CriticalError02_FeatureArt

Two years ago I uploaded my first recorded mix to the web–a freeform hardcore mix by the name of Critical Error 00. I’m not just being humble when I say that it was awful–I had a long way to go in my technical skills, and I did not have a good grasp on EDM track […]


When Audio Attacks

Feature artwork for the mix When Audio Attacks

Ever since I started getting into EDM (and especially industrial, EBM, and future synthpop) I always had a soft spot for the harder, more aggressive sounds. At first this manifested primarily with industrial, but then eventually I discovered gabber and, just a short while later, hardstyle. As I’ve been heavily mixing hard dance the past […]


Hard.Dirty.Tech

If you follow tech dance at all you have probably noticed that there have been a TON of awesome tracks that have come out lately, and even a whole new record label (Diablik and Oyaebu’s Rave Me, which is going to be one to watch!). After picking up a handful of these gems (and having […]


Energy Overdrive

Trance, especially vocal trance, is one of the genres that initially brought my attention to EDM. From there I dove deeper and deeper into different styles and genres, but the structure and feel of trance will always hold a soft spot in my heart…I just wish it wasn’t usually so slow, ha. So when I […]


Groove Funktion

I’ll be honest, All Tech’d Out And Nowhere To Go ended up being a bit darker and harder than I anticipated, and instead of leaving me satisfied with a full-length hard dance mix I found myself itching to show off some more fun hard dance tracks. And that’s how Groove Funktion came about! Groove Funktion […]


All Tech’d Out And Nowhere To Go

AllTechdOut_FeatureArt

Over the past 2-ish years I’ve really fallen in love with hard dance. It has a great amount of energy without being too fast for most people and it has such a diverse range of sounds. In that I constantly find myself drawn to the hard, techy beats. So I decided to put together a […]


2012 Industrial & Hardstyle Demo Mix

2012_IndustrialHardstyleDemo_FeatureArt

Last, but not least, in this batch of fresh new demo mixes is a fusion I was hesitant to try at first. Not because they don’t go well together, more because I had tried mixing them shortly after I started mixing and determined that industrial and EBM was just beyond my reach at the time. […]


2012 Hard Trance Demo Mix

Third in the fresh new demo mix set is a relentless hard trance set. A good portion of my electronic roots stem from trance, so hard trance was one of the first areas I gravitated towards in the hard dance arena (but, for a time, didn’t mix as I became more interested in hard house, […]


2012 Hard House & Tech Dance Demo Mix

This was the second demo mix to get refreshed for the new year. Granted, it’s more hard house than tech dance, but it was fun interweaving the two genres (especially since they just seem to be made for each other). I love the driving energy in this one, and I even tossed in one track […]


2012 Hardcore Demo Mix

With the start of the new year I wanted to go about making a fresh set of demo mixes, and one of the first ones I tackled was a hardcore mix. I tried to get a sampling of most of the styles of hardcore that I enjoy mixing, so there’s freeform, electrocore, UK hardcore, and […]

After long hours of work and design, it’s official, nullstrukt.com is finally live! This site will feature my mixes, reviews, event announcements, and any resources that I can come up with to help others dive deeper into the music. I hope that you are able to find something here to pique your interest, and please […]


BeatJuDown – Comparing Three Major Music Outlets

Feature artwork for the mix BeatJuDown

Part of the fun of being a DJ is researching (and purchasing) new music on a fairly regular basis, but how do you know where to find that perfect track? In this review I’ll be giving a fairly detailed overview of three of my favorite music outlets–Beatport, Juno Download, and Trackitdown–and what the strengths and […]


BeatJuDown, the Mix! (Hard Dance & Hardcore)

Feature artwork for the mix BeatJuDown

This mix came about from the orders I placed while researching my review of my three favorite music outlets, Beatport, Juno, and Trackitdown. I thought it might be fun to have a mix to go along with the review, plus the new tracks were way too much fun to resist the challenge! All of the […]


Typecaster 04 (Hard Dance)

Feature banner for the mix Typecaster 04

At the beginning of 2011 I really started getting into hard dance and its various sub-genres, and that quickly transformed into a musical obsession that has completely captivated me. I probably spend just as much time, if not more time, mixing hard dance than I do hardcore. This is the fourth installment of my "Typecaster" […]


A Foolish Mix (Hardcore)

Feature artwork banner for A Foolish Mix

In celebration of April Fool’s Day of 2011 I wanted to create a mix that used some of my more goofy or light-hearted hardcore tracks as its basis, but on top of that there needed to be several tricks and surprises. This ended up being one of the most fun mixes I’ve arranged so far, […]
