@68000 Ah, great to know - Mikado's my local, but looks I'll have to head over there more often, too. Thanks for the heads-up!

Sticking with the classics for this week's track - one of Alek Szahala's most underrated?

@68000 Great picture! Did you happen to notice if Guwange was there, too?

It's been a very good week or so in Inspiration Corner, mostly thanks to fantasy legend John Blanche's Voodoo Forest and Scions of Voodoo. An absolute lesson in dark, strange, beautiful world-building, I'm having a great time working through them both.

@Sherkel Or even his old school square wave bass (Ngarnuuk etc)?

@Sherkel Ah this is lovely - I'd heard this and Potions before, but not many of the others. Really shows Nomic's range!

Wanna hear an 8-bit boss theme written in Nomic's freeform style? Yeah, I thought you did!

@Sherkel @RebalLance Definitely agree! It's my favourite section, and who would have expected Phaedra to be such a good opener?

That set I mentioned is on YT now, and it's a special one - a Betwixt & Between Live PA that's up there as one of his very best:

Got a couple of TYFTH Live ideas, but this week there'll be a set from the archives going up on YT instead. Should be there today or tomorrow, and then it'll be (for once) more production than mixing this weekend...

Sticking with classic Epyx & Cyrez for this week's track, this has to be one of their darkest:

@RebalLance @Sherkel Now there'll be at least three freeform tracks a week on Masto, strong start too!

Totally agree with you and Sherkel, and what makes them even more impressive is a lot of their early releases were made with a tracker..! I know for sure that Pure Evil was, so we're talking that kind of era.

@Sherkel Well said! It took me a little while to get past the hardstyle-ness of the bass, but this is the kind of thing freeform should have been doing for a long time. Would never have expected something like this from Alek, but I'm all for it.

It's been too long since we heard When Left Alone - quite high up among my all-time favourites, this one:

@Sherkel As a fellow sufferer I definitely second that motion. You were missed, but hoping you've made a full recovery!

As always, enormous thanks to everyone who joined the stream last night - it turns out that there was some false advertising though, as even with the melodic tracks it was a pretty dark set in the end.

Eventually there'll be some notes on TYFTH as I tried out a few new things worth mentioning in this one. For now it's up on YT and SC:

Should have added the link yesterday! Will be going live in about 25mins with a set of (mostly) melodic freeform and some newer releases here and there: twitch.tv/plasmadancer

TYFTH Live is happening on Sunday at 19:00 JST - I was hoping to move it an hour or so later, but it could be a longer set than usual.

Quite happy with it so far, but there's plenty of work to do before it comes together as a set. Lots of newer tracks will be in there, along with some less-played oldies, too.

All the TYFTH time is going into this at the moment, so those posts I mentioned won't be appearing for a while yet.
