Track of the week: Being Human

I love this track’s vibe and its square-wave bassline with a reminiscent of Union Jack. Although it’s considered old-fashioned, it sounds surprisingly fresh today.

Track of the week: Last Man In The Universe

I remember listening to this track in 2000 for the first time: it instantly become one of my favourites, and it still is today, seventeen years later. It has a magic moment in it, something that many nowadays’s track lacking.

Production standards changes over time, a bassline may sound not so “fat” or the mixdown not so clean, but these beautiful musical moments keep living in our hears even years later.

Track of the week: Soaring Flux

This track is a pure hidden gem and a great example of a non-mainstream Psytrance that you probably won’t hear on big dancefloors. I like the pace and the dark vibe on this track.

Full duration of the track is 8:58. This low-quality excerpt is the only one available on YouTube, unfortunately

Track of the week: Salva Divinorum

E-Clip is no doubt one of my favourite artist and a big inspiration to me, his production always innovative. We’ll certainly see more of him later in this blog, but now I’ll post one of his first releases that became iconic.

Love this game of build-ups and drops here, that moment at 4:51 and another one 8 bars later especially.

The Guest Mix @ Trance Psyberia

It’s been a while since I was doing guest mixes, so here’s a fresh one I’ve made for Trance Psyberia, lovely fellows and Psytrance enthusiasts based in LA.

There are a couple of cool tricks with extra loops and effects, for example at 13:30. Quite intense and fast-paced mix, overall, I find it satisfying. Hope you’ll do, too.

Track of the week: Sharks & Laser Beams (Manmachine Remix)

You probably know by now that I’m a big fan of Manmachine. This track has been a secret weapon in my DJ sets for quite some time and I don’t think I’ll remove it from my crate anytime soon. Such a banger, loving it.
