Back in 2008 Activa was on his first high to present his iconic track Remember which maybe every Trance DJ played. It was one of the biggest tracks in the 2000s for me and still is one of my favourites of all time. Just sitting at home diseased I remembered the tune and had to try out the melody. So I thought of a Chillout remake which would suit the melody really well!
Not wasting any time I made it and, of course, there’s still a lot to finish like EQing, effects, maybe some percussions (?), I don’t know yet. But you can hear a short sneak preview on my Soundcloud:
Ingo Vogelmann will release his fourth album in 2023. Being away from music production for quite some time Vogelmann seems to have his most productive year so far. After As Above, So Below, Weigthless, and Elegy for the Living he digs deeper into Ambient soundscapes. Long story short: listen to it and contemplate the reason you exist. It is best suited for very close listening and exploring your mind. It will be released on every platform on November 3rd, 2023 – for example Bandcamp, Spotify or Apple Music. Ingo sent me a review copy upfront so I could give it a listen.
I can’t say how much I love this tune! Stoneface & Terminal are two of my Trance heroes, they used to produce mad tunes and still do today. But maybe my favourite tune by them is more progressive than uplifting Trance. Everytime I hear the breakdown, I can fly to the moon and back!
If you have the opportunity, listen on headphones (not earphones!) or good speakers and enjoy!
As you might have noticed I abandoned Twitter for more than over a month now. I deactivated the account as soon as it was clear Elon Musk overtook the enterprise. But why did I do that?
Too much power
At first I observed the ongoing process of Elon Musk buying Twitter skeptically. It took quite some time, but I knew: As soon as this man will have another enterprise in his portfolio he will have way too much in his hands. He owns Tesla, SpaceX, now Twitter and some other big corporations in different industries. I’m convinced one person shouldn’t have so much power over different branches of life of so many people since all people are fallible. And as soon as one person has so much power, every failure in judgment will have capital consequences.
The days are shortening, light is fading, but there’s this one sunray that lights your day. My friend Jaded and I tried to catch this ray of light in a mix of music. Sometimes soothing and warming, sometimes energizing.
The music comes from some big names like GMJ, Jaytech, 16 Bit Lolitas, Jody Wisternoff, or Chicane and some underground artists like Bebetta, Kosco, Stendahl, Rafal Sentiel, or Yasin Guven.
Maybe you need a new mix to listen on a long road trip or a good way to start your day. „Sunray“ will enlighten you!
Jaded & Addliss has been a duo working on collaborative mixes since 2012. We forged chill mixes like Inspire or Recreate with movie scores and chillout. Later we crafted out pumping mixes like Sunrise and Gravity that really could set your speakers on fire. After a long time without collaboration we rediscovered old strengths and gathered our forces again for a new mix last year. It was a slow, but groovy set, showing we still had to learn from one another. So we had to do a new chillout set!
The COVID-19 pandemic has been quite a journey for most of us. So this is New Tomorrow reminiscing all the hardship, but also telling a musical story not to lose hope for a bright future – however and whenever it might occur. It is about movie scores, movie score like ambient tunes and some classical music. Jaded played some Alexandre Desplat, Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, or Thomas Newman – some of the most iconic score composers. I picked some music from Harry Gregson Williams, William Orbit, A Cerulean State, or Vince Forwards – also some score music, but surrounded by Ambient music.
So now dive deep into relaxation and the sweet sounds of „New Tomorrow“.
World Flow is my newest single release with a heavy kick, some stab synths, a rather long melody line and a tight mix (under 6 minutes). I wanted to create a modern track, not too long, but the stab synths with following supersaw synths definitely evoke a classic feeling.
Now the track is released on a new, uprising label called Tecnomind Music which has been releasing a lot of great stuff lately. On Soundcloud you can hear a small prelistening session of my original and the Emotion Love remix I really appreciate:
Recently I noticed some of my older releases weren’t present online anymore. I know this happened when I had to choose some uploads to be taken down due to Soundcloud restrictions. I just had too many music up there!
Also, as ALYF Recordings ceased to exist, my releases there had been down, too. So I had to re-upload some tracks, which I did on the weekend.
So, if you enjoy my music, here are some teaser snippets again for you. And I always appreciate you supporting my music!
It has been some time since I released a new track, but I’m getting back in the game! World Flow is a banging track with a heavy kick and some shining stab synths. This is accompanied by some sweet pulse shaped arpeggii that sweeten the track with some melody.
Also, I’m reaching out to a new label with Tecnomind Music which have been rising in the last months when it comes to Trance. I’m just so excited to get this track on the way on June 12th, 2020!
In November or so I recorded „Una Mattina“, but hesitated to upload it, since it was not perfect. It still isn’t, but I recorded a pretty good version and I’m satisfied for now. Maybe you like this version since it’s a bit different from the original.
On a side note I found out, Einaudi mostly sounds good with very bright pianos. The mellow pianos don’t fit most of his music.
