Another track. In fact the only one finished this year. It’s pretty ususual both for me and for progressive genre as a whole. How did it come to live? Well, it ticks many boxes:
- Sometime this year I felt strong in mix / mastering, and wanted to try if I can make quality sounds out of anything.
- I’ve got Live 10 and wanted to test drive it, using mostly (if not only) sounds it provides.
- There was a remix contest hosted by Exia Recordings, who were looking for heavy genres: deep / progressive house, psy and techno among others.
- I need quality stuff for showcase, that covers many different styles.
So here it is. A track made with pretty no idea to begin with, that is a remix of original which I didn’t feel at all. It combines so many different sounds that it’s hard to assign it to any particular style. In general, it’s progressive and dark / heavy, with odd psy squelches.
But it’s also groovy, thick and ticks all the boxes. Hope you enjoy it!
Too bad I didn’t win the contest, but hosts listened to it 8 times or so before giving up. That was close I guess. Maybe next time I should stick to good ideas in first place, as mix is not an issue anymore.
