QuerĂ­amos Tanto a Betty (199x remix):
I'd recommend anyone getting into music production give lo-fi hip-hop a shot. It's pretty straight forward and you can takes samples from a wide variety of music styles. I for example, sliced some audio from an old EP I had done back in 2014 with a band. The song was very jazzy with lots of guitar, sax and piano bits to mix together. I'm fairly satisfied with the result. The hardest part of taking samples from songs is stretching them to the time grid, this one for example had been recorded without a metronome so I had to manually stretch every snare hit! Worth it.

Youtube had been suggesting me these progressive house playlists and they all had these things in common; a girl wearing a hat with feather in the middle of the desert, sound fx's of eagles and big birds crying in the distance and images of nomad tribes in futuristic tents. All these elements are generated by the existance of a fairly new genre called desert house, a kind of deeper progressive with a sandy atmosphere.
I made my personal contribution to the genre with Entertain, a track intended for an up and rising party with growing climaxes. The main melody, the one with an arabic was heavily inspired by the movie Flight Of The Phoenix in the scene during which Alex gets shot.
I feel as if I should make more music in this style. It seems to be the present and future of progressive. We'll see.

Under The Trees:
Under The Tress is a remix of an original track by Ailin Liefeldt. The already heavy presence of arpeggiators in the original version made me want to do a trance-style remix and it just so happens I've been busy listening to lots of oldschool trance vinyls and it really helped me get the right sound for the remix; you've got your fat saturated kick, you've got your killer drum-roll and you've got your shiny lead synth. Ta-da, vinyl inspired 90's trance music.

The Valley of Unrest:
As a birthday from my brother I got a compilation of Edgar Allan Poe's poems. I'd done before some ambient tracks with narrations on top so I did that!

I had some sort of cold during the month of May and in an attempt of clearing my obstructed nostrils a blot of mucus went flying on the air and landed on the floor, the bubble it formed looked so inspiring I had take a photograph, the 1 9 9 X letters from my dj table where being reflected on it! I used inkscape to make the vectorial sketch and ended up with a really cute looking artwork.
