Wonky bass aficionado Shlump is back with another hypnotic journey titled “Psychedelic Explorer,” released through Wakaan.
This talented producer has a jam-packed summer full of festival appearances ahead, including Sonic Bloom Music Festival, Shambhala Music Festival, Elements Music & Arts Festival, and more. He recently released volume two of his “Stardust” mix series, you can take a listen here. It is filled with all unreleased originals, plus collaborations with Smoakland, Xotix, and Perkulator. Don’t forget to check out volume one after you’re done!
We had the opportunity to get some exclusive insight about the creation of “Psychadelic Explorer” from the man himself. Here’s what he had to say about his newest work:
“I wrote Psychedelic Explorer during a time when I started experimenting with microdosing psilocybin. I have been a psychedelic explorer for many years but taking microdoses was a new experience for me. I wrote a series of tunes that reflect what I was feeling and going through at that time. More of a melodic laid back feel to this one. There was a sense of novelty to writing something with a chill rhythm and melodic atmosphere. I sampled a few minor vocal clips from a lecture about psychedelics that I felt were appropriate. “What it does is break down boundaries” is referring to the boundary of our ego or identity that seems to separate reality. There is a sense of merging with a large energy of universe that I feel really reflects the psychedelic experience.” – Shlump
The track begins with an etherial styling as glittering sounds lead into a wobbly bassline. Its downtempo ambiance contributes to the mesmerizing nature of the track, slowly enticing listeners into the depth of the void. Slowly, you are transported into a psychadelic trance as the song flows effortlessly through space and time. Seemingly perfect for a sunrise set or a breath of air between bass, we couldn’t be more excited to hear Shlump rinse this one at all of his festivals this summer!
