Track of the week: Lucid Logic

You probably haven’t heard the names of Fonarev nor Second Sine before, but in Russia, they are well-known producers and DJs. Fonarev has pioneered the Russian Trance scene since the 90’s and considered one of the most influenced DJ, while Second Sine is an upcoming producer with a fantastic production that already proved his skills with releases on credible labels.

This collaboration floats in between Progressive Psy and the regular Trance worlds, and this why I like it so much.

Track of the week: Salvation Slumberland

Whirloop is one of those artists whose music doesn’t fit any particular subgenre’s standard, it’s a musical journey that flows in a beautiful and unpredictable way. Such a shame Whirloop no longer in business, I would keen to hear more from him.

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!

Enuma Elish is out now

A new single · JOOF Mantra

Our next single comes from Russia’s Daniel Lesden. After his enormous collaboration with Cosmithex comes Enuma Elish, a jaw-dropping track with a haunting bassline and leads. Expect pure, unadulterated, and intense psychedelic trance.

The driving arrangement, with its decidedly heavy base and quite subtle vocal accents, manages to give this production an aura of mystery, serving as even more of a catalyst for pushing that replay button.

As The Horizon Comes Closer is out now

A remix on You Are My Salvation · Research & Development

The original piece of music is a hypnotic piece of progressive trance, as deep as it is vibrant with colour. Daniel Lesden sharpens the knife and lends his trademark psychedelic angle to the theme, whilst Will Rees & label boss Alan Ruddick converge to create an evolving and tumultuous example of driving melodic techno.

A beautiful example of creatively constructed psy that stays true to the original material, while giving off its own unique vibe.

Genesis is out now

A collaboration with Cosmithex · JOOF Mantra

Daniel Lesden & Cosmthex, two of our grandest artists at JOOF. They come together in style and spirit to form ’Genesis’. Genesis is a track that incorporate dazzling melodies, bewitching soundscapes, and beauteous effects. On remix duties we have Steve Birch and You Are My Salvation, whom without fail, embelish their mixes with their own alluring sounds.

If anything can be said about the masterminds behind the music it would be that the duo are certainly Trance masters of the Cosmos!

Life Simulation is out now

A new EP · JOOF Recordings

The rising star of JOOF Recordings Daniel Lesden has made quite an impact in his short time here, but enough to be having support by many A list DJ’s. Not falling quite into the Full on Psy Trance camp, his sound floats nicely in between both world of Trance and Life simulation is testament to this. We know this is going to be a big success in the underground Trance scene.

Daniel demonstrates the diversity he has as an artist in the fullest measure. Testament to the above statement is his new EP which completely redefines him as it happens to be a trip towards him more progressive side.

Mirai is out now

A new EP · JOOF Recordings

This EP is unique in many ways. “Mirai” is a morning Trance with amazing live flute from Spinney Lainey, and “Out Of This World” — one of my the favourites fracks from myself — is a 130-BPM Deep Trance, something that I haven’t done before. I hope you’ll enjoy my little experiment.
