Cytherean Expanse is the fifth entry in DJ Basilisk’s Expanse Cycle, an ambitious series of long-form mixes dedicated to sonic world-building and cross-genre experimentation. Four hours and 70 meticulously curated selections await, opening with a hypnotic blend of ambient, downtempo, IDM, electro, and breaks before widening horizons with cosmic disco, acid house, progressive trance, and dub techno, always with a psychedelic touch. There is an earthy and organic aesthetic to many of these selections, wispy echoes of the starlit dance floors and resplendent chill domes of some counter-clock world orbiting on the far side of the sun. Expect to hear genres blended, melodies harmonized, and beats matched as extended, layered mixing transforms diverse source material into a seamless oneness.
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.
