Special guest of the month: Datacult

July’s show is quite unusual: as you know I’m a Psytrance music producer, but I also have a love and passion for a deeper side of music which I would like to showcase for you today. I like how the Psytrance labels now embrace that deeper sound as well, as we see more of such music coming out from the names like Nano Records, Iono Music, JOOF, Iboga etcetera, they all seem to realise how fresh it now.

And for the second hour, we have a guest mix from Datacult, a very talented German producer and sound designer.

Special guest of the month: Ekahal

June’s podcast starts with some kind of a Techno’ish psytrance, which I believe we’ll hear more in the future as these two genres will emerge into something new and underground. Also, this episode featuring some well-known artists as well as some very new producers who just made their first track, it really warms my heart when I find such amazing talents.

And for the second hour, we have a really psychedelic guest mix from a Greece artist Ekahal. He just released his debut album on Digital Nature Records, and this guest mix is his album presentation.

Special guest of the month: Mindwave

Today we are going to have a journey through different sides of Psytrance, from its deeper and melodic form to the uptempo style with sharp acid leads, including a brand new collaboration of Mechanimal with myself, which I’m really proud of, and some of all-favourite classics.

And at the second half of the show, we have an amazing producer who I’ve been watching closely for the last five years or so, and I’m actually surprised that we haven’t had him before. Please welcome to Mindwave at the second hour, his production is absolutely brilliant.

Track of the week: Dessert Desert

Human Blue is one of the pioneers who introduced a deeper side of Psytrance to me in the mid 2000’s. It was the “golden era” of Full-on music, so listening something hypnotic was so fresh. Such a shame Mr Dag Wallin no longer in the business, he was a huge inspiration for my own music as well.
