Sorry for being silent for a while - it's been a busy period indeed - but there are some really exciting news on the horizon! My record label Tribal Vision Records is undergoing a bit reboot for our 10 years anniversary, including new releases from Jaia, Tegma, Solid Snake or Rickard Berglöf (Vibrasphere). I myself am preparing a new mixed CD compilation Anthology featuring some of the Tribal Vision biggest classics, and also some new tracks and remixes with my live project with U-Prag Drummers. Besides that, we are planning a big retro 10 years anniversary world tour - please feel free to drop me an email and I will be happy to share the details with you. I finally made a new chart and will do my best to update the rest of the site soon. Stay tuned for more news!

I have been meaning to record a triple-cd set for quite some time and I am really glad I finally managed to do so. The reason for that is simple: it's been some 13 years since I started with djing and in the recent period I found myself playing at more and more diverse events around the world. Naturally, as a dj I am always trying to adjust my sets a bit to the particular event, whether it is massive psy/progressive festival such as Portuguese Boom or Hungarian Ozora, large techno event in Brazil or Mexico or intimate house party in my hometown. So, lately I realized that my music is oscillating among three styles that I would like to showcase in this triple-cd project:
CD 1 ("Deep & Indie") is kind of music that I am usually playing only at Czech house parties, at private events or upon a special request. It is a mixture of modern deep house, house, tech-house and indie dance.
CD 2 ("Tech & Groovy") is music for techno and tech-house events, whether domestic or international.
CD 3 ("Progressive") is something for worldwide (psy)progressive parties and festivals. This is the one that features also some of my own production and in fact most of the tracks on this CD were or will be released on my label Tribal Vision Records. It is also kind of music we are playing and composing in our live act/band project DJ Slater & U-Prag Drummers.
My new release is out today! Three tracks EP made in cooperation with Flippers and U-Prag band features original mix plus exclusive remixes by Jerome Isma-Ae and Beckers & Hatfield and is played, praised and supported by some of the biggest DJs around, including Sasha, Above & Beyond, Stephan Bodzin, Derrick May or Funkagenda. Yopu can buy the whole release or particular tracks at the followings shops, among others: http://www.beatport.com/release/unlocked/998792 http://www.trackitdown.net/recordlabel/102269/tribal-vision-records.html http://www.junodownload.com/products/flippers-dj-slater-u-prag-unlocked/2093615-02/ http://www.amazon.com/Unlocked-Single/dp/B00A8QFG3C http://www.djtunes.com/flippers/unlocked-single

I was also very happy for the two really nice Asian gigs - Shanghai / China (first gig ever there, what a great place!) and Tokyo / Japan. See you at the dancefloor soon ;)
