Well, it has been a while since I have put up a new one. I decided to sit down and quickly put one together before the weekend. Its mostly pretty new stuff, so hopefully you have not heard any of it before. Enjoy!
I posted about this CD a while back. A lot of people (myself included) had pretty high expectations for this CD. I was really hoping for something unlike any other electronic music I had heard before. After listening to it a couple times, I am happy to say that BT definitely delivered. It’s pretty hard to label any of the tracks into a certain genre, which makes it difficult to describe. The closest I can come to a description is to say that its ambient mixed with classical mixed with film score. All of the tracks on the CD are pretty solid. I can’t think of a single one that I didn’t enjoy, which is rare. So if you are looking for a nice CD to chill to, definitely check out BT’s This Binary Universe.
Well, I feel like posting more trance music for some reason. I uploaded two DJ Doboy sets that I personally like a lot. You can download them here:

Be sure to check the site every once in a while since he rotates what sets are up for download.
His sets also get a lot of play over at Digitally Imported Radio.
Its almost here…
What is it going to be like? No one knows actually. But expect something different. For example, the track “everything that makes us human, continues” is written completely in csound. Here is a piece of the code:
amod2 = ahilR * asin
aupshift = (amod1 + amod2) * 0.71
adownshift = (amod1 – amod2) * 0.7
aoutL = aupshift +ar*.1
aoutR = adownshift +acomb*.3
khpline line 440, p3, 180
kpanL line 1, p3, 0
kpanR line 0, p3, 1
aoutLhp butterhp aoutL* ileveloscs, khpline
aoutRhp butterhp aoutR* ileveloscs, khpline
The entire song was written like that. You can see more of it here. But yeah, this album is going to be pretty cool. A few have already heard some and have great things to say:
It’s hard to think of anything more fitting than one innovator creating art from inside the artwork of another — though “innovator” only begins to describe BT. From his work with Tori Amos almost ten years ago on “Blue Skies” and producing *NSync’s “Pop,” to Emotional Technology’s juxtaposition of trancefloor soundscapes and pop songcraft and his acclaimed score for the Oscar-winning film Monster, BT has become the face of electronic music virtuosity, a techno-mage with formal training to match his DJ and synthesis chops, a massively overclocked brain, and the childlike enthusiasm of Shaggy from Scooby Doo. “Like, wow, man, you gotta hear this,” he’ll say. “You’ll totally freak out!”
Listen we did, thanks to the opportunity to be first to hear tracks from his fifth studio project.
Labels such as “ambient” or “modern classical” fit for a few seconds, then the next passage in the song blows away the last, taking any attempt to classify along with it. We can’t restrain our editorial opinion: This as-yet-untitled magnum opus is fine art that works on many levels, mind-bendingly deep but a pleasure to kick back and just listen to. In a hundred years, it could well be studied as the first major electronic work of the new millennium. It’s that good. – Stephen Fortner in Keyboard Magazine
And he’s also been working on a dance-oriented album. So if it turns out that this isn’t as cool as people are expecting, at least we know he will deliver a solid dance album.
Update: They have relased a trailer. The CD is packaged with a DVD featuring all the compositions of the new release in DTS 5.1 Surround and illustrated by a distinguished collection of the finest computer artists and animators in the world today. I assume that the visuals in the trailer are from that DVD.
I decided to post a quick trance set I did a while back. Most (if not all) of the music is by unsigned artists and all of the tracks were freely distributed by them. I made it a while back to help promote friends and other unsigned artists that I liked. The editing is nothing special, the tracks are not anything amazing, and I threw it together rather quickly but hopefully you will still enjoy it. At the very least, it should be an hour of music that you probably never heard before.
