DJ Basilisk embarks on another epic mission into the outer reaches of sound with Saturnine Expanse, 76 tracks and nearly five hours of cutting edge techno, psytrance, electro, downtempo, and ambient. The fourth chapter of the Expanse Cycle spans a vast spectrum of contemporary electronic music styles unified by an emphasis on sleek and futuristic atmospheres, slow-burning builds, and taciturn tendencies. Despite the minimalistic focus there are also period of intense heat as the pressure rises, particularly when reaching the pumping psychedelic core of the mix. Overall the vibe is as ornate and majestic as the ringed world referenced in the title, and there’s ample time to visit many of its disparate and ethereal moons.
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.
