Hidden Thoughts On An Empty Pathway

Posted in

As I’ve promised, I’m putting out some unreleased works. This one isn’t a ‘lost work’ at all because I finished mixing it only 2 weeks ago… But until yesterday night I was planning to never give it a chance to see the sunlight. I’ll try to make things clearer, a little patience will make you understand it a little bit :-)

It’s been a time I don’t make mixes just ‘for the sake of the sound’. I mean, I’m not creating sets only looking forward to its music content, but further: to the deeper meanings permeating the tracks. Basicly I start everything depicting an idea in my mind, and from this point I start choosing the right tracks and combining them to express that idea. So the music becomes a consequence of the process, not its main objective. [Not that I think that a ‘for-the-sake-of-the-sound set’ is soulless; I see room for both. In fact I’m already planning to make one mix in this style together with a good friend of mine, watch out!]

But this one went so far. It’s heavily subjetive, something extremely personal. So subjective that I created it without any plans of releasing it. So personal that I wondered for two weeks what I should do with it. But I ended up realizing that Voyager’s mission would never had started if it wasn’t released into the deep open space one day.

Would be hard for me to reveal what’s behind this mix. Doing that would go against its concept. But perhaps the biggest clue I could give is right on the set’s artwork. I couldn’t make a better description of it than that depicted on Salvador Dalí’s “Los Elefantes”. For all of these days I’ve been staring into this brilliant piece and it scares me to notice how it all makes sense. It is almost a picture of my vague, empty yet dreaming mindscape.

Soundwise, it’s another chilling compilation of dreamy ambient tunes crafted with gentle touches of ethereal nothingness. There’s no need to spend your whole time when listening to this mix trying to find messages within – come on, this is not a riddle. Just syntonize the right frequencies and let yourself to be guided through this empty pathway – that I quite know, can lead you to nowhere. But one thing I can assure: it will please your vaguest feelings.

I’ll be back soon with something hot.

Thanks for your priceless support!

The deArgan Way

Posted in
Here comes the set I’ve specially made for the Trance Brazil Weekend event, as broadcasted 26 January (last weekend)! I received too many positive reactions about it, and that made me really proud. Thank you guys who listened to it live ;-) For those who has missed it, here comes the link!
Here is a 2 hour set of the pure trance sound as we like it. I took care to don’t add any progressive house, techno or whatever other genre (except the intro) track into it… to make it a TRANCE set with major case.
I managed to guide you through a long and progressive, driving journey; taking care to not make it monotonous or savourless. A highway that will make the driver pray to stay on the track and don’t take any other direction. Here it is… The deArgan Way!

Tender Wind On A Summernight

Posted in

A tribute to the fresh breeze that gently chill us out during the summer nights!

It’s summer at the southern hemisphere. December 28, 2012. That was another warm summer night in my hometown, and I started feeling troubled by the heat while I was at my bedroom, listening to The Timewriter’s album “Jigsaw Pieces”. So I decided to go outside and chill out a bit.

I sit on a bench at my frontyard to stare into the sky. It’s quite rare to see a clear night sky at the summer (sky is cloudy at 90% of the days during this season)… I was glad to see some really nice constellations I don’t see in the winter sky! That was a precious moment. The cold wind was blowing from a far away rainy place (I could see some stormy clouds at the distant horizon), gently approaching my skin… I had just listened “Tender Wind On A Summer Night” by The Timewriter before going outside. At that second I realized what was the best jewel you can feel in a summer night: THE TENDER WIND!

After enjoying that chilling night I decided that it would be a nice thing to make a set for the summer’s less recognized child. We always think about the summer imagining a sunny afternoon at the beach, but never a breezy night at the meadows.

I instantly wrote a tracklist. And I couldn’t put any other title on my set than… Tender Wind On A Summernight.

Those August Afternoons

Posted in

Maybe some of you remember of my “Those July Afternoons” mix released two years ago. Here’s some kind of ‘follow-up’: Those August Afternoons!

My mid-of-year vacations were extended because of a general teachers’ strike at the brazilian federal universities (this includes the one I study at). I’m ok with it… Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the magic august afternoons at the place I love the most: my homeland!

Those were great times. Simple, but beautiful. Sunny, cold, dusty, windy, cheerful, blissful days that showed me that I need less things than I think to be truly happy. Of course those afternoons have left a deep mark in my mind and in my soul, and the memories of them still frequently embraces me in a warm daze. I don’t want these memories to fade away, so I captured ‘em in this joyous set.

The soulful pictures in my mind are spread in between the sound frames. I hope you will see them as I do!
