6 Years of Helioscope

Six years ago, I started the Helioscope channel over at Mixcloud. Just like with last year’s celebration, my own contribution will be a 2-hour essential mix showcasing some of my strongest favourites for the best tracks and releases of 2017 from multiple formats (WBU, Golden Age, Idolatry, Ecliptica, Infinite Minds, Neptunian, HORT, Helioscope Radio, LEIMLAB and Silvan Soul).
Stationary Travels (Brian Housman) and Halftribe (Ryan Bissett) will be participating in the anniversary special for two of the most anticipated guestmixes on Planetarium in a long time.

Third support by Henry Saiz of the Turbobache mixtapes

This past weekend marked a hattrick-like milestone in Helioscope history: My collaboration mixtape themed around 80s music, synthwave and nu disco together with Maxthor has been played in full now by Spanish maestro Henry Saiz. A few weeks ago, his radio show El Laberinto featured the first hour of the 5 Years of Helioscope : Maxthor mix. Now even the second part was broadcast to the RTVE radio station.
You can get the full show on the radio station’s official page:

Henry Saiz plays Maxthor & Helioscope collaboration mix on El Laberinto

One of the more recent Turbobache cloudcasts which was also part of the 5 years anniversary has been supported by Henry Saiz on the Spanish radio station rtve. This is the second time Henry decided to use one of my mixes in his show. I’m really thankful for this huge exposure, since I myself am a loyal supporter of El Laberinto. The italo disco and synthwave sounds seem to hit a soft point in some people.
A genuine milestone for the Turbobache channel!
