Vanity In Mind

Two new tracks out on Morrison Recordings!
November, 2012

Leaders Of The New School  
I'm proud and happy to announce that I have two brand new tracks out now on Morrison Recordings, the label run by superstar DJ Glenn Morrison. My tracks are featured on the release "Leaders of the New School" and they are available exclusively on Beatport.

Beyond Arcadia'' is a progressive trance track with a big and dynamic sound and intense string sections, featuring an evocative main melody, combined with strong electro house influences.

'Big Room Rebel' is an electro house/trance crossover with a pumping main floor sound and a very catchy main riff (one of those you’ll be able to whistle before the end of the first chorus) interluded with an airy wordless vocal sample.

Get them here and please enjoy! :)

OUT NOW: "The Sun, The Moon"!
Updated Sep 11, 2012

Out now is my 7 track chillout album "Lounge Garden Sessions" on Aqua Purha Records. Two of the tunes are previously unreleased, Beams of Sun (feat Frelow) and Cherry Blossom (Original Version).

Vanity In Mind - Lounge Garden Sessions – Tracklist:
1. Blue Philosophy (feat. Frelow)
A laid-back and jazzy noir-style track, featuring the smooth vocals of Frelow.
2. Garden
A chillout track with something of an acoustic feel with a melancholic violin playing the main theme.
3. Heavens Falling
This is a hybrid between atmospheric drum'n'bass and chillout and it features a driven melodic hook.
4. Cherry Blossom (Chillout Remix)
An airy Asian-influenced melody contrasts with a rough d'n'b-style break.
5. Beams Of Sun (feat. Frelow)
Frelow's dreamlike vocals give this track an ethereal quality, flirting with a retro new age sound but with a contemporary touch.
6. Walk Me Home
Neo-tango meets electronica. Melancholy ensues.
7. Cherry Blossom (Original Version)
Uptempo atmospheric drum'n'bass with an airy Asian-influenced hook and an aggressive breakdown.
The album is now available in selected stores worldwide, with more to follow. A selection of stores:

     Juno Download

June 2008 - New ringtones & music video

I've remixed Common's old classic hiphop track "The 6th Sense" from 2000. The new sound is laid-back and melodic. As a first for me, I've also made a music video for it - I hope you enjoy the result!

There are also 5 new ringtones available, this time they're inspired by hiphop & r'n'b and 3 of them are from the new song!
