Oct. 9, 2017 – The Lucidity EP is out now on the brand new Droid9 Recordings label. I hope you enjoy it!
“Shanti” was created late one night in my LA studio, just a few months before I booked a one-way flight to Asia. It’s the Sanskrit word for “Peace.” That was nearly 3 years ago. The song was an experimentation in minimalism, a reflection of beginning to apply the same philosophy of simplicity to my own life before I began my travels.
“Lucidity” was written the year before, in 2014, as the initial wanderlust to explore this planet first began to set in. I started writing this tune around the time that the Lucidity festival was taking place in California, when I was feeling a sense of nostalgia for the things I’d be leaving behind once I made my way to the airport.
Originally from Los Angeles, California, currently Tokyo-based DJ/Producer Arthur Galestian makes his Droid9 debut with this beautiful EP, stylistically sitting on the fence between deep dark progressive house and melodic techno.
This month’s mix was recorded live at KC Beach Club on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand on June 16, 2014. Enjoy this fine blend of melodic deep house by yours truly. A special thanks to Paolo Bardelli and all of the folks at KC Beach Club, and the Aurora Music and Black Swan Recordings crew!
