kinguyakkii episode 001

Hello hello hello, and welcome to djeski.com!

This is my first ‘kinguyakkii’ mix from way back in 2006. It features many of my all-time favourite trance tracks, and was the first time I’d focused on the melodic, uplifting, euphoric trance style that has since become the trademark ‘eski’ sound. 

As you can hear from the warm crackles and the occasional ‘warbling’, this set was mixed entirely from vinyl. I’ve moved entirely to digital DJing now, but vinyl still holds a special place in my heart – I’ll never forget those weekends trekking round record shops all over the world hunting down elusive white labels and the latest limited edition released… Or the impact they had on my bank balance!

For those who wonder where the name comes from, ‘kinguyakkii’ is the inuit word for the Aurora Borealis; as you might have noticed, I have a big thing for glowing green lights, and the Northern Lights are definitely the ultimate green glow, so it seemed an obvious connection for a DJ called eski to use this name – even if it’s difficult to pronounce and spell!

Although I only made this mix as a one-off, it actually became the first episode of my now weekly podcast of the same name. You’ll find all the other episodes on this site too, so if you’re looking for more music like this, take a look around! The easiest way to reach them all is by visiting djeski.com
