Here's my september 1st hour mix on my slot @ Pure.FM -> the progressive house channel. Enjoy

Xplore - Wednesdays with Pure Substance [20 mar 2013] - 2nd hour by Xplore on Mixcloud

4 june 2015

It's been a long while since I posted anything. 2014 summer - winter was a time of good releases on Balkan Connection. Started working from the beginning of the year on music again, and until may 2015 also managed to finish up an new album.
It's gonna be out on Balkan Connection's main label, on 23 september 2015, on Beatport and other major audio online vendors. To make sure that you can get it easy.

The album is a progressive house concept album, called Sector 1 which has also a story behind it, behind every track out of the total 8 on the album.

It's about a sector in space called Sector 1, which is populated with 3 close solar-system, that are inhabitable. A lot of races live there and all the audio tracks in this album are related with things that happen in this sector of space.

Theme is definitely in the sci-fi zone. Expect more than 1 albums to come after this one, at some point, called Sector 2, 3 etc.

..just thought to post some stuff here, because i've been idle on the news here for at least 2 years :) so.

Thanks for visiting my page and for your interest in my music.
have a great day june 2015

3 sep 2013

Finally started posting again on my website after almost 1 year of no comments :)
It must be a release for you, my beloved reader, that you finally will get updated stuff from me. (also feel free to check my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/xplor3)

What have I been up to the past year? Well, regular office job work + getting home and working some more on my personal webapp project which is getting close to 4 years in the making. It will be a great portal for the edm scene, to give you an insight to it, I will post links + some more data once I publish it (will be done - finnaly - around the end of this year, 2013).

At some point in august, this year, I was cleaning up some old files from back 1-2 years ago and managed to organize and clean the folders of some music projects and...I came up in 1 day with a full-lenght downtempo album (10 tracks, on which I am working as we speak to finish in few months, and send them to Seamless Recordings, I hope they will like it so I can publish my 2nd downtempo album), 6 athmo drum'n'bass tracks, 5 progressive tracks, excellent for an EP with Balkan Connection and various other tracks including some underground hip-hop beats and few house tracks. Will work on all of these for the next 4-6 months to get them done and ready.

So yes, past year worked mostly on my web project (no music) and now been taking up music again (seriously, again) and also finishing touches for my web project which is kinda done :) (too many bugs fixed of all sorts not to be ready).
Will post some more stuff / news once I get it. And oh, I hope I will find some time this week (due to my goodly part-time job) to update the audio section of my website and maybe add some new feedback / reviews as well, and maybe update my pic too (a good friend of mine with a great DSLR helped me with some new pics) :)

Until next time, cheers my beloved fan :)

14 dec 2012

I haven't been posting stuff on my personal website for more than 1 year and 6 months. No worries, I've been active and working a lot, music-wise between feb 2012 till august 2012 I've been doing some remixes and 1 EP with Balkan Connection which got a lot of positive results. I'm gonna post the reviews I got on these soon. Also I'm caught in a project that I've been developing for about 3 years now which involves music mainly, a web portal for artists and labels, more like a tool that help them work together and also a great frontpage where other people can see what's going on in the dance scene.

Will keep you posted.

Cheers, xplore

ps. I also finally moved to Bucharest in my own place and I set up a little studio where I can produce my tracks. So yey! Finally, things are getting on the right track for me. No more "no-money-for-coffee-and-starving-producer-attitude" :)) THere, I've said it.

 
15 july 2011

I'm back producing and mixing

Soon I'll start working on new EDM and downtempo tracks and probably start mixing in the weekends as well. For now, the next 2 months I will be busy with finalizing a web project i've been working on since october last year which will be hosted on www.electronicdancemusic.net. It will be a tool for the record labels and artists and great promotion for them as well. I'm not saying more since it's still underconstruction. I will keep you posted on that one.


12 july 2011

Time Travel Remixes (incl. Kasey Taylor)

Pure Substance Digital has finally released an EP containing long-time-favourite Time Travel track remixed by Kasey Taylor himself alongside Nomean and Tobias Hoppe, my Pure.FM radioshow buddy.

5 years of international exposure

On the 6th of june, this year, I mark 5 years of international exposure meaning lots of tracks and remixes released with indie electronic dance music record labels around the globe. 5 years of official recognition + 6 years of accumulating knowledge and experimenting with tracks + 2 years of first studio contact + 2 years of beginnings and exploring Amiga - Atari style music + 4 years of music school. Now that's something :) And even now in 2011, in my 6 months break from music when I haven't completed any audio track, I still tried last evening working on a track on my newly acquired laptop with no-drum-samplings-what-so-ever on my hdd, and just few *included synths that Ableton comes with, using some 2 dollar in-ear Chinese-made headphones, in a room with my aunt watching soap-opera tv novels full throttle. The only quality things were Ableton-engine and my oldskool refurbished-and-upgraded IBM T60 ThinkPad and if you add to that, my producer techniques, you can imagine what track came up in the first 20 minutes. And because the setup was running while sitting on an unusual couch that is kinda harsh on sitting in the same spot for more than 20 minutes, I shutdown the whole track-making process dreaming for better days (...when i'll have my own house/room). Just a quick update on what I do these days...keep in touch, you, my greatest reader, and hopefully I'll have better news the next weeks so you can read and enjoy. Xpl.

Close to renting me an apartment in Bucharest

Update for the past 5 months. I've been totally off music, since I was running in circles with producing and not having a dollar sometimes to have a good cup of coffee as I like to say about these situations. You all know indie music producers are really hard with sales these days so I took a chance and got hired in a great city that I really love, Bucharest, which was about 100km from my home town, it is where I work now and live. I'm close to renting myself an apartment soon (1-2 weeks now) so I can finally set up my little studio in the heart of the big city where lots of music minded people are.

I will update more on this in few weeks. Wish me luck :-)

autumn is here

I don't know if you already feel it, cause you might live in the balearic area, mediteranean or other tropical countries but here one thing you definitely feel when it's coming, after hot months of summer is the autumn. Is that cool feeling in the air, everybody getting back to school, more serious times and producers go back in their little studios and start working on stuff, as usual. As of today, also, on top10 downloads on Balkan Connection page on Beatport, my remix of Da Game Boy hit straight no.8, in it's excusive promotion period, which means people still like it, even if it's more expensive than usual.

Enjoy these first days of autumn.

Story behind it

it has been roughly produced between the year of 2005 and 2008. In the beginning there were a lot of tracks which I was planning to release as a downtempo compilation edited in Romania as "Blue Velvet". Eventually, plans changed and I wisely chose a UK editor and publisher (Seamless Recordings, based in London) and Blu Velvet became one of the tracks on the album. The name of the album, 6PM came to me when I thought of the whole bunch of the tracks, pretty easily, that late  afternoon feeling when you feel a bit more relaxed cause day is almost done, you've no much stuff to do, but sun is relaxing and you've got few more hours to chill.

The album itself is a collection of various tracks which use same quality, downtempo beats. From chilly morning sunny "You are my sunshine" to spy-breaks "Detective Clarks...", to loungey "Chilling downstairs", to electronic beats and treats in Semi-Conductors (part 1 and 2), to eclectic electronica productions with dharma music singer Ravenna Michalsen (yes, she's from the States), and finally to jazzy-downtempo-vocalish productions with Marta Hristea, it's all an all-round-original biskuit for ya :))

enjoy

My studio room is being reconstructed (hardwood floors + insulation on walls + painting)

The whole reconstruction will take a while, aprox 2-3 weeks, but i'm very curious to see how everything feels and sound after the thick wooden hardfloors is placed in and the thick insulation applied on the walls (2 walls + ceiling). I think the sound will have great personality and the masters would sound much smoother. Thanks dad :)

News for the last 3 months :)

So...i realized that for the past 3 months i didn't write anything here.....:))

YEY....because i'm back, i needed to fill in the gap...what i did was...january : prparing for my exams, february : taking the exams.
March : got sick 2 weeks and now i'm back.

To be sure that i don't take the exams twice, i decided to take a break from the music scene, even tho' i was totally doing stuff there. So i took a break 2 months, took my exams and now i'm back.

Even tho i will be pretty busy with school until the month of july (*my last year at university, last exams, big paper to write - 70 pages or so, etc, etc) i'm totally back and also working and doing things in the music scene...cannot stay away for long anyways :)

Best thing that happened in the 3 months that i didn't write anything is the offer from Kenny (Pure Substance owner) to join his Pure.FM monthly 2 hr show as a host (which is happening actually now as well, along with german Tobias Hoppe). I was and am very happy to be part of / represent the Pure Substance team and i really hope i will bring the good vibes around along with my partner / host Tobias.

All the best to you all, happy spring and bring the happy vibes. Peace out.

Atari 400 EP (scheduled to be released 1st of january 2008)

Xplore : Atari 400 EP scheduled to be released 1st of january 2008
Carica DEEP will release my next EP (Atari 400) which will have around 5 tracks (NY6pm, Atari 400, Orange drop, One is two, Rise up).

ALL tracks are experimental for me. I know you're used to listen prog tunes or sometimes breaks but this time, on the influence of a lot of minimal going on around me, i was experimenting and so i got up these 5 tracks which will be released somewhere around 22 january in 2008.

I know minimal isn't the choice of many but we cannot neglect certain styles, we need to explore those sides too...so grab it while it's hot, they will be up on Beatport :)

Finally, M-Audio keyrig 49 for me

Xplore : got new M-Audio 49 keysFinally i got me MIDI controller (for producing not deejaying/Ableton/etc).

It's huge (almost twice as big as a standard Apple keyboard), has 49 keys (*:)) and it makes cool sounds when teamed with good software. It's a real deal :)

Umm and it's full USB (so no MIDI cables).

The remix is out on Beatport in 12 days (5 november).

"Road to nothing" of Namatjira (who is dutch producer by the way) is composed of 3 tracks : original mix and 2 remixes, Hernan Gutmer and me.

The original track is very well worked and samples very well chosen...i did a version with more electronic like sounds but still keeping most of the analogue-like original sounds.

Bs As Deep - The last angel (xplore mix)

Xplore : Bs As Deep - The last angel (xplore mix)






Artwork is done for the 5th EP on Carica Deep (StereoK) featuring remixes on Bs As Deep's : The last angel.

Featuring 1 original track and 3 remixes, one from me.

Style of my remix is pretty much weird : not progressive house or even progressive trance or a sort of mix between electronica and one of those.

It's some sort of funky minimal grooves, (but not necesarily minimal like style).

You have to listen to the full track to know if you're gonna play it or not :)

Road to nowhere - remix for Vise Versa new label done

Xplore : Road to nowhere - remix for Vise Versa new label done
Remix is done, waiting a few more days to do some more things to it but yes, the main thing is done and I must tell I enjoyed working on this one a bunch lot more than on usual remixes I get, probably because the whole sound is coming from UK alternative scene. I totally love this one song.
