Always good to hear new music made with the DS-10. Here’s some information about Dream Stages:
Michael and I (Rutger) met through our mutual obsession with a small synthesizer for the Nintendo DS (KORG DS-10). At that time I was mainly focussing on rave music (house, gabber, etc.), while Michael was exploring the mystical side of electronic music (IDM, ambient, etc). We decided to work on an album that was truly a 50-50 mix of both our styles, with classic acid sounds as a binding factor.
Now, about one year later, we very proudly present our album ‘Dream Stages’. We put our hearts and souls into hand crafting all the synthesizer sounds and subsequently composing psychedelic rave music with a nostalgic touch. The whole album was made using KORG DS-10, by bouncing ‘saves’ back and forth between both our DSes.
Playing as many live shows as possible is our next objective. Live… meaning with lots of improvisation and strange surprises.
A new journey begins, thank you for joining our path…
