Track of the week

Random picks of my all-time favourite tracks. The series come out every Saturday.

Track of the week: “Ground Tracer”

Here is another crossover between Psytrance and Techno worlds. Dalibor Delic and Nikola Kozic aka Ectima masterfully crafted percussions and hypnotic atmosphere in this track, I love it.

I also recommend checking out their entire album “The Clash Of Civilization” if you haven’t heard it yet, it’s totally badass. I’m sure we’ll see more of Ectima in this blog in the future.

Track of the week: “Zlow”

This track is weird. It doesn’t sound like a typical Progressive Psy and even sound a little bit “dirty”, and strangely enough, this is probably what attracted my ears when I heard it for the first time. That YouTube video is just a 3-minutes long preview, be sure to check out the full-length version.

Track of the week: “Human Being”

Drasko Radovanovic make fantastic tracks under his alias Relativ, they have those melodic components of the Full-on music from the mid-2000’s which I like a lot, but at the same time wrapped in a modern arrangement with a top-notch quality.

It’s safe to say I like every single track of Relativ, this is just one of his recent works. I would highly recommend more of this productions.

Mar 4   Psytrance   Track of the week

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: “Synthesize”

I’ve been playing this track at some parties and every time the dancefloor went nuts. Love the long progression and the dark vibe here. Miroslav’s style is unique, once you get familiar with his music you’ll always recognise it.

Things are starting to get serious at 2:30.

Track of the week: “Science & Spirit”

I love Boris Blenn’s music for almost two decades in a row since his early Goa trance releases. But I also respect him that he constantly improving his sound and not stuck in the 90s.

This collaboration with Symbolic is a truly modern top-notch Psytrance.

Feb 11   Psytrance   Track of the week

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.

Track of the week: “Who We Are”

A gorgeous blend of Techno and Progressive from Martin Vice and Michael Banel. The main theme is a little bit cheesy but the track’s progression and overall production quality are outstanding.

Play it loud.

Track of the week: “Black Essence” (Nerso Remix)

Nerso did a great job remixing this track, I like its simplicity in an old-fashioned way: no triplets, no 2-minutes long breakdown, no pitch-rising vocals. Just a straight melodic Progressive Psy, it sounds almost like a slowed-down Full-on from 2004~2005 but much more polished in details.

The things kicks off at 2:19. Notice how the bassline velocity pattern changes at 2:48.
