DJ, producer and label head JourneyDeep A.K.A. Josh Powelson has taken the next step in a creative transformation that has spanned more than a decade with the launch of the techno label, JourneyDeep Black. Case in point: his upcoming release, The Strangest Dream EP which debuts the label on February 18th, 2018.
As one might expect “The Strangest Dream” illuminates dark matter. A heavy yet danceable tune defined by an entrancing melody and artful use of negative space. With hissing percussion whose musicality exists in a dissonant dream all on its own, the track sets the stage for what’s to come on label JourneyDeep Black. This is a song that could easily find its way into DJ sets from a variety of tastemakers.
Closing out the release is a heaving hitting remix from the cosmic duo Astronoize; whom continue to deliver with what they do best. The song’s throbbing kick drums, hissing percussion and curious vocal refrain take us up a notch from the original mix and takes us deeper into darkness.
According to Astronoize, their fascination with the cosmos runs deeper than a branding aesthetic. The duo claim that understanding space has helped them find balance in their own lives, saying:
“When you learn about space, you learn about how everything in the universe is connected. If you really put your mind to it and learn about what’s out there, you can learn about what you’re doing on this planet and where you came from and what the future may hold. It brings us peace and makes us not worry about the crazy stuff going on in life because there’s way crazier stuff that goes on in space.” – Astronoize
