While I'm rummaging through my old mastertapes lately, I came across this trance track that I did back in 2003 as a case study into supersaw's, delaying a meldoy track and basslines...
I opted for German while composing and writing this track since I was, at the time, frequencting ski-resorts in Austria and Italy (South-Tyrol). Could the legend of the Flying Dutchman be true?
I'd like to dedicate this track to Max Verstappen and to all he has done for Formula 1 and racing in general so far, because he IS The Flying Dutchman! #keeppushing Recorded and produced back in 2003 as kind of a case study into supersaw's and delaying a melody-track. I turned it into a trance-tune geared towards German audiences because at the time I used to frequent ski-resorts in Italy and Austria. After what Max Verstappen is showing us so far in the racing world, and looking back into history... What is the flying Dutchman? Is it the myth of a ship sailing out from Terneuzen to go missing at Cape Horn, or is it the story about a Dutch guy who knows how to race cars? I Like the 2nd version best!

Back in 2002 I was sitting behind my computer listening to the album Zoolook from Jean-Michel Jarre once again, and in the 2nd movement of the song Ethnicolor I suddenly had the idea to do a house/dance track using a sample from that track.
That's what lays at the basic of this house tune I conjured up then. I started recording (my own) vocals and processing them together with coming up with some kind of theme/melody to carry the tune on the foundation of a steady four-to-the-floor house-beat. Here's the result...
This one I've composed and recorded back in 2002. Reflecting on where our desire to dance to music and rhythm's comes from... It all began in Africa, where tribes have used song and dance for centuries during their rituals to communicate with ancient spirits and so forth. Music is evoking, emotional and spiritual, and music is the universal/cosmic language which binds us all together like mathematics. Because after all life is very binary! Zero's and one's, or even better yet, positive and negative energy... Composed and produced by: Armand Segers For this track I've used a sample from Jean-Michel Jarre's track Ethnicolor from the album Zoolook
I updated Nychthemeron Part 3 (Morning) to the extend it can be mixed with the next track I have in mind. I guess by listening to the track (especially the end) you'll hear where I'm going with this ;-) Nychthemeron Part 4 (12 PM) is coming. Leaves me to wish you all a good morning
This latest version of Nychthemeron Part 3 (Morning) has been finished to the extend where it can be mixed into the next track... Nychthemeron Part 4 (12 PM) is being worked on Follow the work in progress and see all latest news on: www.armandox.com
One of the first tracks I ever publicly released was this remix of Dragon's Legend by Italo-group Koto. At the time I was calling myself Eclipse and I released it with the Kosmik Free Music Foundation (KFMF), former KLF (Kosmik Loader Foundation) who were hailed as one of the first internet-labels ever to exist.
