    OUT Narel - Relinquish [JOOF Recordings]

    Yeah! After 23 years of producing I finally get a dedicated room for it in our new house. I was always shoehorned into corners of other rooms before, which isn't easy with hardware synths!

    OUT Narel - Relinquish [JOOF Recordings]

    T Thanks mate : ) This tune and 'Baseline' are a bit different to some of my other stuff, I blame the Aussie bush techno festivals. Loads of acid and techno : )

    Just moved from Melbourne to Tasmania so re-building the studio! I've got a collab with Cosmithex and a remix for Pure Trance to get done, then I'll re-visit this as well as the unfinished 'B' sides from the second album.

    Funnily enough I have been thinking about doing an alternative version doing exactly this. But I wanted this tune to build and build with layers of acidy sounds after doing loads of melodic and chilled stuff on my album. The pads in the breakdown were an accident. I was trying to make a layer...

    OUT Narel - Relinquish [JOOF Recordings]

    Yeah I intended it as a follow up to Baseline, started out as a mess around on Roland TB-03 then started to come together with the rhythmic bassline and harsh bass stab sequences. J00F Records turned down 'Baseline', so I was really happy they accepted this. Glad you like it.

    OUT Narel — Diary Of A Synthy Kid (Artist album)

    Thanks man : ) It's really difficult to provide adequate previews of tracks like those on the album - except the x2 proggy ones. Kirill did a great job providing longer previews than normal. And yeah, a lot of time went into programming sounds for this. Thanks : ) This one was the last...

    OUT Narel — Diary Of A Synthy Kid (Artist album)

    Thanks for the kind words. This album started as an ambient and dub techno crossover experiment after spending many hours at the chill stage at my fav festival. I was honoured and surprised to play the chill stage in 2019 and putting that set together sort of set this album in motion. The prog...

    The TranceFix 'Best of 2020' Awards

    Only just seen I made the list. Thank you for this, it was not expected. 'Baseline' was turned down by a few labels and I nearly gave up on it, particularly when one of those labels described it as boring. Seeing it make a best of list on an honest forum like this produced a huge smile : )

    OUT Michael Cassette - Crockett's Theme [Anjunadeep]

    Oh dear. I love the original track AND I’m a fan of many Michael Cassette tracks but this is just bad. The Jarre-esque ‘popcorn’ sound doing the rendition of the lead riff is cringeworthy

    OUT Façade - Orewa [JOOF Recordings]

    Remember Burn Your Idols was a collab dude. I wrote most of it 13 years ago. Ad and I then re-made it, both of us adding new parts. That’s why there was never an ‘original’ mix. As well as the old issue of trying to produce one track across two different studios. It feels like a follow up to me...
