about

Inspired by a combination of arts - drawing and music writing, all along with mind-expanding readings, Stardust Beings was conceived over the past three years of countless hours of studio experimentation. The sounds on it, pretty much just like every other thing in the universe, are unstoppably mutating from one form into another. Rising and falling. Constructing for the sole sake of destruction. Starting and restarting. Germinating just to die next.

Challenged to create something new, what differentiates the tone of my debut album is the fact of having short breaks - if any. Drops out of a busy moment, trying to avoid the g'old formula 'break-rise-drop' every now and then - which by the way works fine and most certainly have not been forgotten. Also, loads of squelchy bubbles and glitched percussion get constantly trapped by dry & fat basslines. Obscure detuned leads meet bright and obvious melodies. But above all and despite the bpm or whichever sub-genre it fits into, the piece definitely seeks psychedelia all the way.

Striving to blend night elements into progressive oriented tracks and highly influenced by Ireland's psychedelic music scene, the mood gets darker and faster as the album goes on. Kicking off with a prog-groovysh feel, Nebulae presents a clean track and a melodic progressive vibe. It soon gets a bit darker and definitely straighter as Chaotic Protostar kicks in (first a collaboration with Adults & Basstards, then a solo track). The following one just Keep Rolling with a straight bassline as an invite to the fullonish From Where We Begin (with Squee) that takes the scene next. Then two tunes setting foot on fullon vibes are Main Sequence and Stardust Beings - the latter a collab with Dexter Psychedelic and Smuga. After peaking at 144 bpm, there is another collab track made with my Irish friend Sionnach for On The Verge with a bright-darkish vibe. On the other side of the edge, a collab with legend Lah Narrad and Hypknotoad, Supernova Type I sets the tone for the last trance music of the album with just about enough darkness. Finally, downtempo bonus track Gamma-ray Bursts peacefully closes the cycle that gave roots for this work.
