Dreams of Grandeur double EP

Long time no update.
But now I’m back with another double EP!

Dreams of Grandeur Inverse Universe EP

Double trance EP with different tunes that have one thing in common – unusual composition using exotic key changes.

Available now in the Internet near you:
Beatport
iTunes
Juno

Inverse Universe 2018 is actually a rework of my old tune from 2013, with little changes in composition but day and night difference in quality.

Dreams of Grandeur is an idea I’ve had stuck in my head for years… done completely different.

I also got quite positive opinions about this EP. Suprisingly more people appreciated the unusual key changes rather than didn’t like it. So there’s a room for experimentation in trance, too!

As usual, I’ll discuss every track from this EP in separate article. In the meantime, enjoy!

Sunrise in Brisbane 2018 Remix

Okay, this is a rework of track that’s only few months old. The difference is not so apparent this time, but certainly it sounds better. Cleaner and smooth. Not much more to say here.

I also learned that good mix is not necessarily achieved by making everything loudest¬† and clearly audible – even though it eventually gets there anyway. The good mix is when nothing sounds wrong and gives listener no “WTF” moments. Just as in professional productions you hear on the radio.

The making of Starvation

Since now extended versions of tracks are on Youtube, there’s a good point to discuss how “Starvation” was made.

I had a simple idea in mind – a straightforward trance tune with african theme. This involves, obvioulsy, polyrthytmic djembe drums, but also harmonies. Some grooves were played by hand using different instruments, such as Ableton stock rack and Big Bang Cinematic Percussion, other loops were found on the Internet. As to harmonies, I googled some “african music”, understood correctly or not, and tried various chord progressions until it worked.

Pure Trance Mix 2018-01-06

I made a resolution that I will be more productive this year. It doesn’t mean I will work more though, rather that will waste less time on activities that are useless. In particular, listening to hundreds of tracks and not playing any of them in the end is a huge waste. So here I wrapped up my Pure Trance collection.¬† Very satisfied with this mix:

The making of Introscope

Since it’s out now for everyone to hear (and to buy, apparently), I can say a few words how this track came to life. It took incredible amount of time and effort, but was worth it.

It actually started as far as two years ago, with the rough idea to create some true hard-hitting and dark trancer with evolving structure. The title “introscope” means “device to look into yourself” – it was meant to be a journey through different emotions and states of mind.
