Because a little bit of glitchy PsyTrance is always gooooood…
Full of chilling synths, comfy bass and downtempo beats, here is the second part of the Triptych series !
Huge thanks to Ziphoid and SceneSat for inviting me again to the party 😊 … Always in for a little SceneSat tune. It’s been a while and it has been quite a musical adventure during the last years but … never forget where you come from, who helped and made you in the first place. Neuroland is just a little cool tune for you, more focused on melody, like DemoScene music should be… and a bit more on the happy side than the minor/dark/psy/ambient stuff you may be used to… But heh, life is not always about dark stuff. Proud to be here with you all and hope our orbits will meet again soon. Best respects from Canada.
Available exclusively on Bandcamp at “Name your price” all for the SceneSat community.
During the last years I had the honour to been involved with the SceneSat community which is a netradio/netlabel focusing on the DemoScene artists and friends. Once again they invited me to submit some tracks for their Sound Of SceneSat compilation. I had three little tracks waiting for this compilation to go out and thought, why not releasing them on their own as well ? So I just packed them together and created what could be defined as a Triptych (a work of art that is divided into three sections).
Hope you will enjoy this humble release. Two tracks to get you in the mood, leading you to the third one which is the main piece of this EP. This last track is trying to grab a bit of the vibe of the computer and downtempo music I was listening in the 80-90s. Hope you’ll enjoy this little trip into my world. If you do, you are fo course always welcome to contribute by buying, sharing, commenting and streaming it !
This digital only release is available on most platforms (Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes, Google Play/YouTube, Amazon, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, Napster, iHeartRadio, ClaroMusica, Saavn, MediaNet) and, on SceneSat Radio.
Thanks to everyone at Hackfest 2013 for another great hacking night !
Oh and if you are one badass 1337 H4X0R you can probably guess the URL of the “Hacker Mix” … like… not the “PsyTrance DJ Set” but the “Hacker Mix” … wink wink…
Here you can download the two custom made mixes that were played during the iHack 2013 night with the playlist. All tracks are again coming from Ektoplazm releases so be sure to head over there if you want to get your hands on the full albums you like !
Æon is a simply structured electro-house track, using complex synthesis sounds coming mainly from two custom G2X modular patches. A nice blend of chill in the back and punch in the front sharing sound elements with Voyager 1. This track was first released for the Sound of SceneSat Vol. 2 compilation. Thanks to Ziphoid of SceneSat Radio for inviting me again !
Oh and… you may here soon a new remix of this track soon… and not from me !
This downtempo track was my contribution to the “Sound Of SceneSat Volume 1” compilation from SceneSat Radio. This track was inspired by the classical ambient dub tracks I love and used to listen a lot in the 90s. With the time it became one of my favourites. Most of the sound sources are hardware, the G2X providing the background noise and ambiance, the Virus for the CS80’ish sound, pads from the Wavestation, arpeggios from the DX11 (still can get usefull stuff out of this one too), even a little guitar in the break. Sometimes everything just fall right into place, making a perfect blend out of simplicity.
