Stuff alike Crossing Mind?

Recommended Posts

Like the title says, does anyone know of stuff that is simliar to Crossing Mind, specifically his Inner Shift album? I find myself loving it more and more every time I listen to it, and I need more stuff like it.

The whole album sort of has a unique sound to it. I haven't heard lots of stuff like it.

 

The only other song that I could find that is remotely similar is MFG's Dark Water, but even then it's only similar near the end of the song.

Can't say that I do. That's one of the things that I think helped his music really catch on when it was resurrected a few years ago: it had a bit of a different sound that was not like the (sometimes formulaic) newer goa trance, had a bit of an old school vibe but also didn't rehash the old school sound.

Ya, what you said is how I sort of felt about the album. It was new but old. It caught my attention right away when I first heard it.

Nothing like it. CM is a magician shaman with those melodies that he crafts for his tracks which separates him from the rest of the pack. It would be a dream come true to be at a live gig ..

Definitely one of a kind and that video alone has to be in my most played list!

 

Remember playing it all the time in Australia, dreaming of being there, now I'm only a few months from seeing him live at last. Crazy!

 

Should try go to this if you are somewhere relatively close country wise!

New sounds from him. I hope a new album is on the making :)

Speaking about the new releases, he will release 'Virtual Mind Cleaner' track on our compilation this month, and I can tell you it's pure Crossing Mind style and vibe, very emotional track with wonderful floating atmosphere and deep layers. Will post some previews in upcoming days!

Wonderful news! I always wondered why this was not released on Inner Shift. First listened to this track in Budapest after saying good bye to my girl. Tears to my eyes...

There's no one that sounds like him. Quite an achievement in these days of cookie cutter psy of various flavours.

Sorry to hear that, but yeah, track itself is very emotional. Imba & i cried whenever that track was playing during the making of tracklist.

Nothing sounds quite like Crossing Mind :wub:

 

If I was however to try find similarities, I'd say that - in terms of SOUND, not melodies - a mix of artists like Biodegradable, Dissociative and Merr0w would be pretty close. That kind of raw, primal and usually purposely dirty sound, that's changing and morphing in time, sometimes even bordering on annoying, but never really crossing the line for long enough. Contrary to a lot of music released under goa/psy label, it sounds as if it was recorded live, i.e. that every sound and tweak is hand-made, rather than meticulously programmed, trimmed, quantised, etc. in software. Other record I could think of that sounded like that was ancient Tromesa "Pasma Czasu" album, which - due to technical shortcomings of hardware available in Poland at the time - was really recorded like that.

Jikkenteki - The long walk home , the upbeat CD.

 

not like CM but still different from what you hear nowadays. As far as i can tell he doesnt stick to the 4/4 sound .. time signatures are quite different IMO ( correct me if im wrong - im no producer) . its sort of disjointed form of track structure . you might like it!

Thanks for the suggestions guys, will check them out. I like the idea of tweaking live while the song is recording, can be lots of fun. But from my experience, you have to keep track of what you're doing otherwise you'll end up 1 hour later tweaking and messing around a lot and very into the zone, haha.
