The Beauty of Darkness out now!

While I’ve been on holidays in Kenya (absolutely amazing!), another tune got released. Now need to keep the listeners updated 😉

The Beauty of Dakness is a nod to older dark trance anthems that used to be popular in 2000 – 2010 period, but seemingly got forgotten in favour of banging uplifters. Still, Aftertime Records, usually releasing my psytrance tunes, seems to be interested in this kind of sound. So here it is!

Hear it on Spotify or Youtube.

Get it from Beatport or Juno.

The Making of: Full Moon Remix

The remix of “Full Moon” by Matthias Bishop got quite some range and positive feedback. It was also an occasion to record a video about sound design for this track. The video is my most popular episode on Youtube by far, go check it out:

Recorded back in the summer, recently edited with great (and free!) DaVinci Resolve 16. That certainly is quite an advancement since early episodes, but I won’t stop here!

The Video features Reaktor Blocks, now with awesome Toybox expansion which suddenly became my favourite tools of trade. Feels nice to use, looks great, but most importantly, sounds gorgeous. Indeed there’s something about all these “analog” and analog emulations.

New remix coming in January

Well, January is still far away, but at least I got release confirmation and a nice cover.

My remix of “Full Moon” by Mattias Bishop is coming on his new, but already popular Aural Sonic label. Although still trance, it has an unusual progressive / funky feel inspired by some of my favourite classics. You may want to follow me on Facebook as I’m going to tease some of inspirations during the time before the release.

Take a look at the cover:

Also, it’s a beefy release coming in 7 version in total. Something for everyone’s taste for sure 🙂

The Making of: Supercontinuum

It was an old idea, probably 8 years old by now as I got it back at the university. “Supercontinuum” means, in layman’s term, a rainbow laser. So that’s pretty much what you can see on the cover:

 

It’s quite an ephemereal phenomenon unlike anything observed in nature, and so is the sound design for this track. Not a single subtractive synth was used in the making of “Supercontinuum”, and samples were very sparse too. Main lead is string morphing smoothly into flute thanks to Harmor. Bassline comes from newly purchased FM8. Pseudo-acoustic instruments is Chromaphone 2, some atmoshperes come from Iris 2 and Ableton Operator is also there.

Last, but not least – all the melodies and harmonies were created by AI. It’s all Orb Composer, and in fact I started to create this track immediately after I purchased the tool back in 2018. Took me many months and three attempts to get anywhere with it. In fact, I been adding final touches in August 2019. Even though the track was signed immediately, it still took several months to get the remixes done by Sublitrance and LTM.

Supercontinuum out now!

Double hit this week. Now, Supercontinuum is my first single that got remixes from other artists. Check this beautiful progressive / melodic / pure / epic trance on Tecnomind Music.

Spotify

Beatport
Juno
Amazon

Now, this is an interesting production for many reasons. I will tell all the story behind it in another blog post.

Conquering all frontiers

Two different tracks are coming just in March. Different labels, different styles. One thing in common – it’s awesome trance.

First, Native Aliens is full-on commercial psy that hits hard. Because I wanted to make something typical for once. Coming on March 16 at Aftertime Records run by Leo Itskovich.

Native AliensSupercontinuum

Supercontinuum is a progressive / epic trance tune with elaborate composition utilizing AI as well as exotic synth selection. It was supposed to be many things, but eventually style feels much like Solarstone. Probably the most easy-listening track from me yet.

Featuring two remixes, coming on March 20th at my home label Tecnomind Music.
