Track of the week: Truffle Hustle

Today’s track of the week features some Techno. Or should I say Prog-Techno? Still not sure how to call this mixture of Progressive House with Techno elements, but anyway, who cares.

Love the roaring bass and the ride cymbals at 2:15. And by the way, this is the vibe I like to have on my running playlist, can’t do it with an up-tempo music.

Track of the week: Never Hopeless

You probably know me as a Psytrance music producer, that’s the music I love and dedicated to almost my entire life. But in fact, my musical taste are not limited by only particular genre. For instance, while running or doing some routine I like listening to a deeper Progressive music, and today’s track of the week is one of these.

This 3-minute cut is the only upload available on YouTube, the full length is 6:52.

Track of the week: Harpoon (Alex Di Stefano Remix)

As a follow-up to the last week’s track, here is another crossover between Techno and Trance worlds. Hypnotic, emotional, I like that. I haven’t played this track in a club, but I bet at a proper underground party the crowd would go nuts at 5:14.

I’m sure you’ll hear more of Alex Di Stefano in this blog.

Surreal is out now

A new single in two parts · JOOF Recordings

Daniel Lesden, a name synonymous with excellence, returns to JOOF with his Surreal EP. Divided into two parts, this EP is mesmeric, stimulating, and trance-inducing. Contrasting his regular sound Daniel explores his deeper side which has awoken a groovy, tech-inspired monster of a release. Turn up the volume, dim the lights, and be prepared for a Surreal experience.

It’s deep, dark, and I’ll be damned if Surreal isn’t the perfect word to describe the atmosphere of Daniel’s latest opus!
