New mixes for 2021

Hey all! I have two mixes to share in this thread. Both are recent recordings, unusually long, and feature music from the last decade or so. I put a huge amount of work into both of them and hope this forum is still home to some adventurous listeners ;) dig in!

This first mix was recorded to showcase the Techgnosis Records sound... but there's a lot more going on here than just that!

This second mix is too long to fit on SoundCloud... my goal was to create something unhindered by time constraints without repeating any project or label. The end result spirals through quite a few different styles before returning to where it began:

Thank you for the comments :) it's a rare pleasure these days, when people are often too busy to comment on music, much less DJ mixes!

I have two more coming out soon, both premiering on their respective channels before I eventually post them on my own site. "Radiant Flux" will be debuting on Radiozora tomorrow (Saturday, May 29th); check their homepage or Facebook for the schedule if you happen to catch this message... but for now, here's a guest mix I made for Digital Diamonds featuring 100% psychedelic techno gems!

My guest mix for Digital Diamonds is now streaming on my channels:

You can also download the mix and read more information on my site:

I also un earthed a classic progressive house set I played a couple of years ago... it's nowhere near as polished as the other new mixes I'm posting but might be of some interest. All tracks from 2002 to 2006 or thereabouts:

 

It's also available for download from my site:

Do you have any Goa Trance mix sets you’ve made that you can recommend? I’m into both new and old Goa. :) Thanks! 

I’m curious since I remember that you released or hosted, some really nice stuff in the past on Ektoplazm.

Sure! I have a bunch of Goa trance sets that I would recommend. This one documents high-intensity night-time psychedelic trance of the late 90s: https://fromearthorbit.com/mixes/blacklight-metropolis/

This one is in a similar vein but more technoid: https://fromearthorbit.com/mixes/moonshadow/

A unique mix exploring 120 BPM Goa trance and compatible styles: https://fromearthorbit.com/mixes/circadian-rhythms/

Radiant Expanse is out today! 4+ hours of summer festival sounds, mostly centered on progressive psytrance and progressive house, with onward excursions into midtempo breaks, chill out, and beatless ambient. Tune in and get lost!

Thanks for the new additions! The .flac download of Radiant Expanse is broken at the moment. Edit: works now.

Out of curiosity, how long does it take to make those mixes? I imagine it's a rather time-consuming process.

Also, I've noticed that some of the Synaptic FX mixes have morphed into DJ Basilisk mixes - what's up with that?

Sorry about the trouble with download links. I've been receiving sporadic reports that those links don't always work... I'll look into it, but in the meantime, just keep trying :) 

Most of the new mixes are pretty time-consuming, but I've got a really solid workflow in place, and I record in multiple sessions when I need to, so it all works out. Composing/arranging/practising is probably the biggest time sink. Editing tracks might take some extra time, depending on what material I decide to use (most of my new mixes contain edits, and some of them require many hours of additional work). Recording goes by relatively quickly; I tend to use the first take rather than recording the same sequence multiple times. Post-production can be pretty arduous, particularly since I'm adjusting the level of compression from track to track in Ableton these days. And then there's all the work involved in completely fleshing out track listings, time-stamping the mix to make cue sheets, cover design, authoring promo text, uploading, promotion and whatever else.

And yeah, some old mixes were ret-conned into my work as DJ Basilisk. At some point I decided I rather not bother with multiple identities, different social media accounts, paying for more than one SoundCloud, etc. I'm also trying to make cross-genre experimentation and ambitious mixcrafting my brand rather than saying "this is my psytrance project" and "this is my house/techno project". Maybe it's foolish from a marketing perspective but since I'm not really playing out much anymore I'm inclined to pursue my musical vision without concern for such things.
