KINETIKA pres. KINESIS-Altered States E.P [Psyology Records]


South Africa's Dean Athienides, better known under his artist name "KINETIKA", is an artist that seems to pour every fragment of his soul into the music he produces. Avid lover of those spacey, trippy and in general psy-trance sounds, he has made it a mission to deliver pure psy-trance bliss to those who are without a doubt addicted to it. His latest sound venture came to life during the lock down period and it is definitely a project he is very proud of. A labor of love, passion, constant thought, possible awakening and rediscovery. This is a five track E.P and it has been dubbed "KINESIS-ALTERED STATES" out on home label "Psyology Records".

We have before us an E.P consisting of five exceptional tracks. In a way they are all linked together as if part of a short story. Each track appears to be a chapter in the tale of the "Altered States" saga. From "Sensations Of The Mind" to "Open Your Mind", "Oneness", "Altered States" and "Connected" each one offers something to the aural story you have laid out before you. 

Diving deep within this magical box of delights, one is sure to encounter pure moods of euphoria, curious yet intriguing sound effects, cosmic melodies with futuristic tendencies, trippy moments, hypnotic grooves and narratives with a cinematic quality. Ultimately the listener may find a spiritual, emotional high conjured up by the rich textures within. 

This collection of tunes seem to launch us on a journey of self discovery as we traverse through the depths and complexity of our very own mind and soul. Potential awakening awaits the eager listener as these deep, hypnotic grooves found on these tunes will most definitely be devoured by the psy-trance enthusiasts! Marvelous work by "KINETIKA".

Aly & Fila with Deirdre Mclaughlin-Gravity (Daxson Remix) [Future Sound Of Egypt]


Egyptian trance duo "Aly & Fila" joined forces with Irish songstress "Deirdre Mclaughlin" in 2019 and the result was the mesmerizing tune "Gravity" we all have come to know and love. It went on to become a firm favorite amongst the vocal trance enthusiasts with Deirdre's vocal talents stealing the show. It naturally was released on "Aly & Fila's" home label "Future Sound Of Egypt" and went on to receive a great position in the dance music charts and our hearts. 

After being supported by many of clubland's heroes it was only fitting to see remixes of this tune surface. The desire by the artists to remix this was imminent. First on board with a thrilling remix is an English DJ/Producer known for his wide selection of successful originals and remixes alike under his own name "Dan Dobson" or his usual alter ego "Daxson". 

 Dan gets straight to work by implementing his artistic influences within. Acid synths, choir-like segments and buzzing basslines are here from the start to shake things up. Deirdre's haunting vocals emerge into the open like a bright beacon on a starless night, making the track soar to new heights. Lush piano keys are here paired up amongst angelic, serene strings giving us moments of temporary reflection before the distinct leads rush in piercing our veins with pure adrenaline, elevating our very essence to the heavens above! 

 Uplifting vocal trance at its very finest! Would love to see a future collaboration in the works between Dan and Deirdre. Here's to many more tunes like this!
