Another cover has landed – this time for a single “Overload” by Alhena. I did some driving retro hard trance remix for it, and it turned out really catchy. Well, you’ll have to wait till September 13th till it’s released.
For now, just enjoy the preview:
But know that the buildup is the the part where the magic happens 😉
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.
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.
Back with a mix, long time no see! I couldn’t find much time for music lately, mostly as Stema Summer Sale got me 😉 But now I’m back on track, mixing music but also making it. As I don’t record mixes recently, the tracklists are getting too old. Need to catch up, have another similiar mix soon, or maybe more. To get anywhere with it, one needs to perform it on regular basis.
This set is an absolute premiere of my new production “Introscope”, which was born in pain over last two (!) years and kept in shadows, but finally coming close to completion. More details will be coming in the fllowing months.
