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.
