Psytrance

Rave Podcast 098

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.

Confront Reality is out now

A new collaboration · Digital Om Production

You won’t hear triplets, Indian motives or pitch rising effects in this track — It’s a straightforward 142 BPM melodic track that you can actually dance to. Here’s our collaboration with Mechanimal which is out now on Digital Om Productions.

Here’s what Christopher Lawrence said about it:

Great track! Good groove and heaps of complementary melodies.

Written and produced by Nick Sagar-House and Daniel Sokolovskiy

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.

And for the second hour, we have a great guest mix from an uprising star of the Irish Psy scene, a Dublin based DJ and producer and A&R at Critical Overload, Altered State.
