@Sherkel First in a series of late replies, sorry! The intro is really an E&C tribute to Betwixt's style, and some files were even exchanged in the early days of the tune. Such a shame it didn't get beyond the 'obvious influence' stage to become a proper collab.
The original version of Distant Illusions started life as a possible Epyx & Cyrez and Betwixt & Between collaboration.
Haven't quite managed a TYFTH Live before the end of the month, but pencil in an NRG stream next weekend. Will update with day/time asap.
In the meantime, Cyrez is inviting remixes of tracks on the Smothered album: https://twitter.com/EpyxCyrez/status/1058073307034120196
Semi-enforced silence so far this month, but there are some posts in the works that should appear soon.
Cyrez's multi-genre solo album was released yesterday and is a must-listen. Far from NRG but has some beautiful moments - and even a fabulous, relatively downtempo Distant Illusions remix for the freeform crowd.
Last night reminded me how useful streamed sets can be for practice, as well as how nice it is to spend some live time with the TYFTH crew. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and plans are already afoot for at least one set next month.
On second thoughts...after some practice I've had a couple of ideas, and so it's back to the original plan!
Longer post coming later today with all the necessary info, but there'll be a twitch stream this weekend, on Sunday at 19:00 JST. This time it will be goa only - to be honest I haven't really been feeling the NRG I had planned and would rather use parts of it in next month's set.
From next month there will also be occasional non-recorded streams of promo/rarer tracks, so watch out for an announcement pretty soon.
The next stream will likely be weekend after next, just catching the end of the month. The plan at the moment is two shorter sets in one session, but we'll see how the prep goes before then.
A promising #goa demo for Katedra's artist album, releasing on Global Sect and mastered by Alienapia:
What has turned out to be the longest TYFTH post so far should finally be ready this week.
@Sherkel Hope you do! I've got you to thank for the latest effort so it'd be nice to return the favour.
@Jambato Thanks, so am I! Will keep at it, but Afagddu will only be back if things get dark enough.
On a 5 day Reason streak right now, hoping to make some decent progress before getting back to the mixing.
Very much enjoying E-Mantra - Stapanii Timpului, his strongest #goa since Arcana. There might never be a better Mantra track than Praying Forest, but it's exciting to hear a new take on those atmospheres.
Some admin trouble means the TYFTH soundcloud's going to be hamstrung for a while, unfortunately. Working on it and will update as and when.
