Breaking from the shadows

Making mixdown and the final touch at Audio School

I have to confess: I’ve been procrastinating on making music for months. Pff, what months — the only one released track this year I made a long time ago in 2017, so practically I didn’t make any new tracks for more than a year. I moved to another country since then and then had another move, which of course affected my production environment, but frankly, this is just an excuse I told myself.

Bye-bye, Israel!

In reality, I simply couldn’t overcome myself for making something that I no longer enjoyed much. And only when I publicly announced that I’m moving forward musically, it became easier.

Where I’m going to musically

So, that’s about it. I just finished a new track, and it’s just awesome. A 123-BPM dark driving Progressive with melodic elements. In fact, I’ve made it two from scratch in two days, and plus a few more days for polishing and mixing. It’s very fast. And all because it is easy to work when you love what you are doing.

Ah yeah, I remembered about “not the best production conditions” excuse which I told myself: I made this track in a $20-in-ear headphones. Some of the cheapest headphones, literally (I use them for sports activities). That’s it, Dan, your bastion of excuses has now finally collapsed.

Here comes the trivial, but very important moral of this story: do what you like and don’t do what you don’t like. As simple as that. It sounds like Captain Obvious, but it took me a while to get to it. Try it too, it feels amazing.

do what you like and don’t do what you don’t like

In the coming weeks, I’ll do the mastering and sign the track on a label. It’ll be released by the end of the summer hopefully, so I’ll share the preview in a month or so.

Mechanimal & Daniel Lesden upcoming collaboration

Mechanimal (on the left) and I in our studios

Stoked to announce my upcoming collaboration with no other than Mechanimal, a producer I’ve been a fan of for years. It’s a 142 BPM track with a positive vibe and a blend of our signature sounds.

Keep an eye on updates as we’ll share a cover artwork, label, date, and of course a preview soon.

In the meantime, make sure to check out Nick’s recent releases (this guy is on fire!) and his guest mix on Rave Podcast in case you missed it.

A new single is coming on Iono Music

I keep my promise to make more music for you, and today I’m delighted to announce that my new single is signed on Iono Music, a label that needs no introduction among Psytrance fans.

This track is quite unusual, in terms of both ideas and production-wise. Here’s a short studio teaser with no spoiler, a longer preview will follow in the coming weeks. Watch this space!

New single — done

Last month I’ve locked myself in the studio to win some time and finally finished a new track after a long break, as promised. Just get it signed on Digital Om Productions.

I still feel quite nervous when sending a new track for approval despite the fact I have dozens of releases behind, so I’m glad this one was accepted nicely. I’ll keep you posted on the updates.

For now, here’s a tiny work-in-progress clip I recorded earlier:

The new album is complete!

Half year ago I announced my second album production. And today, I’m totally delighted to say that the album is complete!

It’s a full-length album with eight previously unreleased brand new tracks and one remix. The album will be released on my home label, Digital Om Productions, in early 2017 — in a few months from now. And just in few weeks, I’ll start sharing the album’s title, cover artworks, and course audio previews.

Being an introvert person I hate doing public appearances, but for this occasion, I’ve recorded a video announcement with a short teaser:

Collaborating with AudioFire

I’m delighted to announce that I currently working on a collaboration with a very talented producer and great guy, AudioFire. Our track sounds really nice and banging so far, and I look forward to sharing more details about it with you guys! It’s going to be a part of my forthcoming album.
