DJ Basilisk unveils Crystalline Expanse, the seventh entry in the Expanse Cycle, an ongoing series of ambitious long-form mixes dedicated to sonic world-building. This time around we’re riding a comet from the coldest reaches of the outer solar system into the white-hot glare of the sun and back again, trailing ice and vapour all the way. Expect to hear a frosty yet emotive blend of progressive trance, psychedelic techno, tech house, dub techno, electro breaks, IDM, and deep ambient as the journey unfolds, always with psychedelic undertones. While the overall mood of this mix tends to be more serene, contemplative, and introspective, it also culminates in several high energy sequences to release tension and further the storytelling arc.
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.
