Music, technologies, and human experience from a Russian Psytrance music producer.

Follow me on social media

Facebook is my main news hub where I share upcoming releases, gigs, photos, videos, and blogs. Typically, I post 3–5 times a week.

Telegram and Twitter duplicate what I post on Facebook, with occasional extra content.

On Vkontakte, I write in the Russian language for my fans out of from Russia and CIS.

I also upload vlogs and gigs videos on YouTube and share travel photos, selfies, and studio routine on Instagram.

DL Edit

I edit pretty much all the tracks in my DJ collection, making breakdowns shorter, or making a DJ-friendly arrangement, or changing some parts here and there, or even adding some bits from other tracks. The way I always have something unique in my sets.

Sometimes I can instantly tell what will work on the dancefloors and what won’t, sometimes I see the crowd’s reaction and only then add a respective note to this track to tweak it later when I back in the studio.

Eventually, all these tracks end up being labelled as “DL Edit”, so I know it’s my edit and not the original version when I play.

Working on a proper music collection is where all the DJ’s hard work is, when you see a DJ is playing is just a tip of the iceberg.

No stress

It’s been almost two months since I’ve put Rave Podcast on hold and said that I won’t be as active in social media as I usually am. And you know what, it actually feels great.

It’s great to not being worried about the deadlines and all those public activities that music producers are kind of have to have nowadays.

In return, it allows me to win some time to do what I love to do as a DJ and music producer — to actually make music and work on my music library. Things will get even better, bear with me.

Working on my music library

Prog.Doc: Cosmoscow

🇷🇺 Moscow, November 30, 2018

Super excited to be playing in Moscow at the legendary Gorod Club along with the fellow DJs. November 30, save the date!

Stepping aside

For the last few years, I’ve been living on inertia. Write a track, share something on Facebook, record a podcast, all as per usual. Always in hurry, always in rush. Why? I thought I know the answer — because that’s how it supposed to be, isn’t it? But recently I asked myself: “Do I want to see myself there in 5 or 10 years?”, and surprisingly, the answer was no. A part to that answer was the music which no longer excites me that much.

Psytrance is stale. Even if the most successful artists say so (Astrix posted this a few days back on his Instagram story), then the scene is really in a bad place. I never said this before, but in reality, it’s not that easy to find even 10 to 15 fresh and original tracks a month to fill the monthly podcast. Same kick and bass, same copy-pasted leads, Terence Mckenna phrases, or Hindu vocals, or bloody stupid triplet drops that makes absolutely no sense. Don’t get me wrong, there are quite some awesome and talented producers and labels around and I still love Psytrance, but not that kind of “Psytrance” that you typically hear at a festival or in Beatport top chart.

It’s time to make a change.

I have decided to give myself a little break, time off to make something fresh. You’ll probably won’t see me very active in social media and even think to put Rave Podcast on hold for a while, but I want you to know that is only because something new will be forging in the meantime.

Rave Podcast 100

A special episode

The 100th episode of the monthly radio show. Do I need to say anything else? I was on tour without the Internet, I was sick, I worked, and celebrated my honeymoon, but I didn’t miss a single episode. Feeling proud and thankful.

For such a special occasion, I recorded a two-hour mix with a smooth build-up. Definitely check that out.
