    Baba Bhosandi Tracks…..Awsome…….BooM!!!!!!!!!!

  • Moogle says:

    Thanks. Good album. Has listened with pleasure.

  • listner says:

    Heard the entire album, the first three tracks have the same bass line. All the tracks have similar sound as the previous album, no doubt clier skies was an extraordinary album with groovy new sound, but….DX…its like listening the same thing again & again….sad but true. Good job tho i like it. shit happens when you over expect!

  • Alle says:

    great albuns guys….sucessfull…

  • Hello listner. The first tune Hands Off has a Minimoog saw, single note bassline.
    The second track, Steady Now, is a Jupiter 8 square wave bassline in a delay line, playing varying notes.
    The third track Darjeeling Express has the ES1 (completely digital sounding) doing the bassline with a single saw playing something like an 8 note riff.

    If them 3 basslines sound the same to you (like you said sad, if that is true, or maybe you weren’t paying attention you naughty rascal!) and the tunes in Darjeeling Express that have tempos which vary from proggy spacious 136 BPM style tracks, to very busy arrangements at 145 BPM, then I guess Darjeeling Express does sound like the same thing, again and again. It just goes boom boom boom, innit ;)

    Anyhow, good thing you liked Clear Skies at least.

    To the rest of the people, glad you like the album, its good to know there are people that love good ol’ psy-trance.

  • Bill says:

    A fine work of art!

    I have really enjoyed all your works of art. I love this music and have for a long time now. Strange thing though, a lot of people here in Canada don’t really know how to listen to this music. They say they just hear a beat or boom boom. I think to myself, wow! are you missing it! To them I say, expand your mind, look deep into the music to appreciate what is really there. Beautiful sounds that take us all to other places. There is so much so savor! Thank You for giving us the oportunity to sample your wotk.

    By the way, This site rules!!!

  • Listner says:

    Hey DH, i didnt mean to offend you bro. I love you guys seriously, i am your biggest fan, have been waiting for the newalbum since long now, have always promoted you guys, was just trying to give you a lil feedback for what i thought was good. Your sound is freakin new and amazing and thnk u for providin us with such beautiful music. I love the new album. I am in Soouthern Cali, any plans you guys playin this side? Keep up the good work! gettin more people to buy.

  • Harsyc says:

    Hooligans!!!!!!!!!!wow was blown away with clear skies ,cant wait to hear Darjeeling express i love u guys for the kind of quality psytrance u guys “CREATE”. just curious guys whats the story behind the album name “Darjeeling Express”. coz i am from India.peace

  • Hello Harsyc.
    Jordan has spent a few seasons in Goa and round India in the late 90’s and we made a tune that had all sort of sitar and wildlife sounds in it, and also seen the movie Darjeeling Express so we just named the tune and subsequently the album, “Darjeeling Express”. None of us has actually taken a ride on the Darjeeling Express train, just thought it was cool to name the LP like that and make that cover that looks like a modern day underground train map, sort of giving the hint that today’s metropolises are the real jungle and trance music is the best transport through them. Not that easy to catch when one sees the cover and goes like, “wtf the fuck does london’s underground map look alike has to do with Darjeeling Express in India?” but there you go…there’s a deeper meaning behind it :)

    Listner, no offense taken bro, thanks for kind words, peace out.

  • Harsyc says:

    thanks guys the well now the album art makes sense……….lots of beautiful and serene places to visit in india, nice to know this part of the world has influenced your music….good work in DE,will wait patiently for your next EP.

  • I can’t wait to give this a listen! Am a huge fan of Clear Skies and have been eagerly anticipating a follow-up release. Check out my podcast episode featuring 6 tracks from the Clear Skies album. I can’t wait to put together a Darjeeling Express mix!

Woohoo!

    Really professional album, loved the quality and clarity. Stand-outs for me were definitely Steady Now, Like Chocolate (when it finally got going) and Lifesaver/Heartbreaker.
