2023-01-24 record of tides glitch hop hdj set date announcements
we are happy to pass on the announcements of upcoming record of tides glitch hop hdj sets at hier ist nicht da and rosi in gelsenkirchen. the sets will take place on march 24 at hind and april 20 at rosi.
nadine heckner of rosi announces: a long cherished dream comes true. sven piayda will perform a dj set at my place. he had to wait a long time for an appointment, but now i am even more happy that I can present you his glitch hop hdj set. save this date, even if it is still a long time from now.

record of tides is the electronica project of media artist sven piayda. ambient, idm, post hip-hop and post rock are woven into an independent and sophisticated sound, and the sounds are accompanied live by specially produced visuals. record of tides celebrates electronic music beyond techno and soundscape. the unique sound oscillates between composition and deconstruction, from nostalgia to futurism, and explores the possibilities of the genre. piayda looks back on releases and gigs over the last two decades and remains independent and groundbreaking with its varied sound.

for 2023, piayda has come up with something special in addition to audiovisual live sets: for the glitch hop hdj sets, he plays glitch hop, post hip-hop, electronica, idm, vaporwave, downbeat, wonky, remixes, mash-ups, rare & unreleased. in the consistently conceptual sets, the closely related genres of hip-hop and electronica are woven into one another despite their differing popularity.

sven piayda has been working on the concept for months now. check out the posters for record of tides hdj sets, they are announcing the upcoming hdj sets now and will become collectibles later.
