Happy album release day! I have decided to upload the album in full here and upload the album track by track weekly! I'm doing it this way so I don't spam the portal (and your feeds) with a whole bunch of music! If you want to listen to the tracks I haven't uploaded, as well as support the release, you can follow this link here:

This album took a ton of effort, and was recorded, mixed and mastered in 3 months. There's a little lofi crust due to me recording the majority of my stuff with a 20 dollar microphone in my room but I think it came out well despite these shortcomings! The overall creation of this album spanned the course of 4 years but I wasn't able to start recording until February of this year. Some of these pieces were written even before my previous album Topaz. I wanted to wait to give them the treatment they deserved. This marks a change for my commercial releases as, at this point forward, I shall be only releasing music similar to what you can find here. I hope you understand, as I want to grow outside of my FL Studio techno routes. Thank you for following me on this creative journey, and I hope you enjoy listening to what I have created. Here's a synopsis of the album:


Songwriter/Producer TeraVex's official followup to 2019's "Topaz." Alexandrite aims to create a realm in which multiple emotions themes, and musical styles are experienced. The album reflects on a past life experience through reflection and self improvement. Change is a constant element of the album, giving a platform to vibe in various ways. The styles of Citypop, Mo-Town, and Synthpop and artists like Gorillaz and Stevie Wonder are heavy influences of the sound of this album.

Bro, you did a great job!

TeraVex responds:

Thank you so much!

I'm always amazed at what you bring forward from that brain of yours. I've been following you for several months now, and even what you refer to as "simple" or "basic" bops are really well done and very enjoyable to listen to. I literally have your music in my playlists alongside other Synth and Techno artists. :)

I also follow you on Bandcamp, and I think you're incredible!

TeraVex responds:

Wow! This is one of the kindest things I've read! I am incredibly grateful that you enjoy my music, thank you for the wonderful support! It means a TON!

TeraVex responds:
