Denstrow's Psychedelic offerings

Taking a cue from fellow gearslutz user Fiddlestickz, I decided from now on to put all my tracks under one thread. Just so you know what to expect here, "Denstrow" is the moniker under which I release psytrance & related stuff.

First off is a free EP I put out recently on Bandcamp:

Do Not Disturb EP | Denstrow

As you may notice, there are a few more free offerings in Bandcamp as well. Feel free to dive in.

If you prefer youtube, you can listen to the whole ep here:



Enjoy!

Daytripping (album)

I also released an album in July, for anyone interested. It's more retro-flavoured than what I usually write - I see it as the kind of album I might have released 15-20 years ago, if I had the means to do it then (and didn't suck at production like I did at the time).

I usually describe the music as "leftfield psytrance with retro influences and progressive overtones".

Quite often - especially nowadays - you hear a lot of tracks sounding the same; from track to track, and artist to artist... I prefer variety, like in the psychedelic trance of the mid-90s, which is the kind of trance I grew up with, so I also try to do something different with each track.

Anyway, I hope you like it. Here's links to the album:

A little track with an oldschool flavour - not too trancey, but quite interesting.

Another one, with elements of goa, techno and some angular riffs.

Lingus (Denstrow Remake) (original By Snarky Puppy)

A demo of a psychedelic dance remake of Snarky Puppy's Lingus I'm working on, featuring the famous Cory Henry synth solo.

The Lingus remake starts out sick. I haven't heard the original but this has Man With No Name vibes all over it. Super clean mix. Reminds me of when I started producing, this being the kind of music I wished to make. The jazzy keyboard solo pokes out of the mix a bit awkwardly loud for my thinking but I understand that's the signal feature of the track (by Cory Henry I presume). The timing could be tighter in some places but in others it feels locked in. Maybe a comb or bandpass filter would give this a bit more airy vibe. The wandering nature of the solo reminds me of Shpongle tunes. Very cool.

Thanks for the input! It's just a demo for now; I'll replace the solo synth sound and work on it more as I'm not too happy with it either, I find it a bit underwhelming and messy sound-wise. I have recorded live drums, and will add a bass and a few more stuff, so it's a long way to go still, production/mixing-wise... But I think it will be pretty powerful in the end - at least if I can manage to dress up Henry's solo in an interesting way.

If you like jazz/fusion you should also check out the original, I think it is a modern day classic (check Youtube for the studio live version). As for my version, I just HAD TO 'steal' the solo and do something with it - hence the remix!

Nice classic trance groove. It moves me physically and I'd like to hear it loud at club. Nice phatness.

Out of interest which monitors do you use? I'm reviewing the ADAM SP5 headphones and your mix sounds nicely balanced.

Thanks!

I'm using Neumann KH120A monitors and Senheiser HD650 headphones.
The sound of the monitors is, for me, very neutral and I'm happy with how they translate (I chose them over Focals). I'm now planning to buy the KH805 subwoofer to compliment them.

As for headphones, I haven't tested anything else really, but I imagine the SP5 sound great. I opted for open-back however because I sometimes mix with them and, as far as I know, open-back are better for that purpose.

Cheers

Thanks denstrow, that's useful to know for a reference. Nice monitoring set-up; it shows.
I normally use open-back K702's although the SP5's have a good open soundstage.

Bhedam Trance

A psytrance track that draws from carnatic music, with a lot of polyrhythms, and also in 9/8 time. Surprisingly, it seems to work!
