- Nocturnal Wanderlust

dj-basilisk-nocturnal-wanderlust

Nocturnal Wanderlust is a thoughtfully orchestrated journey through the deeper realms of psychedelic trance with special emphasis on showcasing a smooth and sublime progressive style. Conceptually, the story line unfolds as a descent into the inner world of dreams, reaching a hypnotic state of trance near the heart of the mix with Noma’s tranquil Avoid the Future, and gradually rising through tribal-organic sound textures to awaken on the other side of night with Etnoscope’s Sunrise.

Notes

  • Recorded on March 5th, 2005, at Junction Studio, Toronto, on a pair of Pioneer CDJ-100s and a Technics 1200 turntable.
  • The turntable was used to include the track by Noma, which is exclusive to vinyl.
  • There are two copies of this mix in circulation: the full-length version and a CD-length edit. I wasn’t able to find a lossless copy of the original full-length version so I’ve only made the CD-length edit available for download. The full-length version appears only on Mixcloud.
  • The cover design seen here is not the original; this version, which features a night-time shot of English Bay in Vancouver, was created several years later.
  • At this point in time I hadn’t discovered harmonic mixing theory so there are some sour notes and awkward transitions throughout the mix.
  • 15,000 downloads as of March 2019.
