Psychedelic Saturdays Vol. 2
Hello again, fellow lovers of trippy tunes! Here are my picks of psy-trance goodies for round 2 of rabbit hole journeying:
Darwish – Psybrero
Normally I’m not too big on using Beatport to find new music, but for psy-trance, the website is a wonderful source of new tunes! Darwish is one such artist who I have recently discovered through what I like to call “the iTunes of EDM,” and I’ve gotta say I’m a huge fan of this guy. As someone who loves haunting Asian/Middle Eastern vocal melodies, I was pleased to hear the vocal sample used in “Psybrero.” Combined with interesting spaceship sounds (forgive me producers – I’m a classical musician, I have no idea what to call electronic sounds!), this song was an overall great time for my ears.
Darwish & Sub6 & On3 – Sun Stormer
Ok, so maybe when I heard “Psybrero” I became slightly slightly obsessed with Darwish. The man can make a new tune! Here is yet another masterpiece from his upcoming EP to be released on Hommega Productions. While listening to this song out in public, I got several weird looks from people around me due to the massive amount of head-banging that was happening. But hey, when music makes you head-bang uncontrollably that’s a good thing, right?
Static Movement & Helber Gun – Dynamic Velocities
“Ooooooh my gaaahhdd!!!” Those were the first words that came to mind when I gave this track a listen. Such complexity! The sped-up tempo is quite nice too; when using this to run I felt like I could go for miles. The breakdown is insanely intense and leads into something even crazier. You’ll have to listen yourselves to see!
Durs – Origin of Gravity
If there was any one word to describe this song, it’s “futuristic.” Along with the futuristic sound came a vocal sample that heavily reminded me of the main dude’s voice in Bloodhound Gang (and yes, I mean the ones who made “Discovery Channel”). The end result? I was bumping my head like the boys in “Night at the Roxbury.”
Adam K – Point Out of a Curve (Seven Monkeys Remix)
Where to even begin with this track? Wow. It starts off with an airy melody in the classic Adam K progressive style, speeding up into a mellow breakdown. Then out of nowhere – bam! Hello there, psy-trance! The main recurring quote throughout the song is, “It feels like my life is based on loops;” I was certainly thrown for a loop listening to this remix! Corny jokes aside, this was my favorite find of the week and I highly recommend you all give this a listen.
Hope you enjoyed! See you guys next week!
