Rave Podcast 100

A special episode

The 100th episode of the monthly radio show. Do I need to say anything else? I was on tour without the Internet, I was sick, I worked, and celebrated my honeymoon, but I didn’t miss a single episode. Feeling proud and thankful.

For such a special occasion, I recorded a two-hour mix with a smooth build-up. Definitely check that out.

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: Altered State

The show starts off with some nice deep Trance and even Techno which surprisingly sound really fresh to me despite the fact some of these tracks are pretty old actually, I hope you’ll like it too.

On top of that, we have some of the best Psytrance around, including new music Lyktum (a track taken from his new album which is absolutely gorgeous), a collaboration of Mechanical and Sabretooth, Vini Vici, Perfect Stranger, Volcano, X-Noize, Sonic Species and more.

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.

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!
