Also, certainly my best yet. Having done that, I need to tthink about producing some tunes more in line with commercial standards. It’s not a matter of technical skills anymore, it’s a matter of style.
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!
A second remix for producer and label owner Matthias Bishop. This time it’s meant to be funky and progressive, but ends up with familiar uplifting lead. The only 138 trancer in this single, as you might have expected:
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 🙂
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.
