DJ Basilisk charts a course to the outer reaches of space and sound with Celestial Expanse, the sixth in an ambitious series of mixes devoted to sonic world-building and cross-genre experimentation. This epic journey spans more than 4 hours and features 62 tracks ranging from the abyssal depths of ambient to high octane psychedelic trance. Abstract and glitchy IDM set the mood, evolving into cybernetic electro and modular techno as the pace quickens, eventually breaking through to mind-melting darkpsy and the eerie gloom of forest music. Engines reverse after reaching a peak at 155 BPM, beginning a tumultuous descent through bewitching twilight, energetic full-on, and new school Goa trance, finally grounding out with wispy traces of tech house and dub techno, experimental bass music, and ice-cold ambient.
Series: The Expanse Cycle
The Expanse Cycle features long mixes exploring diverse styles centered on individual musical worlds, but also including other sounds in their outer haloes. Every mix in this series is programmed with long introductions and comedowns, building from silence and eventually returning to the void.
