What's Hot in This Week's Show

The Midnight Project by Sebastiaan Hooft
Discover fresh techno with The Midnight Project. Weekly new releases, energizing workout mixes, and exclusive underground tracks await you.

We start with Layton Giordani's "Freaks at Night," a track that captures the essence. Layton's ability to blend dynamic soundscapes with pulsating rhythms never fails to impress. Following this, Hans J drops "Seriously," a deep and driving track released on Redesign Records. Hans J is quickly rising in the techno scene.

One of the highlights of this week's episode is my track, "Shadow." This track holds a special place in my heart, encapsulating a journey into techno's darker, more introspective realms. "Shadow" is now available on all platforms, so be sure to listen and add it to your playlists: listen here.

Redesign: A Story of Personal Transformation

As I reflect on my journey, one pivotal story comes to mind – the transformative power of a near-death experience. In 2009, I was in a hospital, overwhelmed by the pressures of entrepreneurial life. I worked from six in the morning until midnight, seven days a week, neglecting my health and personal life entirely. This unsustainable lifestyle led to a complete physical and mental breakdown.

During my recovery, I had a profound realization about the importance of balance. I started to think about how lions live their lives—they hunt when necessary and rest when they can. This analogy helped me understand that we are here to lead high-quality, balanced lives. This moment of clarity became the foundation of my book Redesign, where I share the principles of sustainable entrepreneurship through the Five Facets: idea, Team, Planning, Resources, and Health.

Today, Redesign is not only a book or a record label; it's a testament to this philosophy. Every story and release reflects a commitment to balance, creativity, and innovation. I invite you to explore these principles further in my book, "Redesign," and apply them to your life and career.
