Whenever you decide upon taking a road trip, holiday or just all-around journey through life as a whole, what matters isn’t where you start and stop. The beauty of the experience is found in the in-between, in the breathtaking moments that you’d miss out on if you were to just hop from A to B and take shortcuts. Applying that very same notion to his music, Sebastian Davidson took his time to capture the essence of such a journey and somehow managed to fuse it with his unmistakably magical signature sound. The result is a stellar debut album that puts his peerless production skill and shimmering soundscapes fully on the map: ‘Atlas Of Adventures’.
‘Atlas Of Adventures’ sees Dutch producer Sebastian Davidson offer music fans the chance to explore the sonic panoramas and impeccable views of a kaleidoscopic body of work. A spark of uncharted brilliance many a listener could lose himself in for all eternity, the album inspires and enchants through twelve tales of inconceivable beauty and mesmerism, including wondrous excursions such as ‘Father, Mother, Brother’, ’Alpenglow’ and ‘Klapp’ (with Claes Rosen). The mirror image of a world untainted and untarnished, ‘Atlas Of Adventures’ shows that A and B are mere stepping stones to the greater picture. And that picture, that canvas of brilliant colors and irresistible songs, truly is dazzling.

Sebastian Davidson: “Over the past year, I have been pouring myself into this album, drawing inspiration from my love for peaceful and untouched landscapes to discover my own sound. it has been the most rewarding, musically personal work I have ever done. It’s a new chapter that started out with ‘Alpenglow’ and ‘Father, Mother, Being’ being test songs to see if I could express my ideas. Both songs helped me a lot in defining the direction of my album and I dare say it’s everything I wanted it to be.”
ABOUT SEBASTIAN DAVIDSON:
A vast landscape, stretching out past the horizon. Dutch producer and DJ Sebastian Davidson’s music is a panoramic snapshot you want to dive into and explore. His tracks are a creative spur of the moment, clean at the core and rough around the edges. Deep house is the stylistic foundation of Davidson’s explorations, which are both musical and emotional. Getting lost and finding your way back, longing and wandering melodies, accompanied by mood setting beats, breaks and four to the floor. Diverse in style, deep and mostly downtempo, but firmly rooted in progressive and melodic house. Although technically a debut, the album is the culmination of years of gigs across the globe, from L.A. to Ibiza to Tokyo, experimenting and growing as a producer. ATLAS OF ADVENTURES is Davidson’s most personal project to date and comes closest to the core of what he wants to express artistically.
If you’ve started to feel a change in the weather, more warmth in the air or sun on your face, all we can say is… lucky, lucky you!
f not, well hey… join the club! The sun’s been an all too scarce a sight through VANDIT’s window too. Frankly we could use a ray or two to break the cloud, and right on cue, Alex Ryan’s delivered them
Hailing from that current hotbed of trance talent, Dubliner Alex blazed the trail for his VANDIT debut throughout 2017 with outings like ‘Visions’, ‘Connect’ and ‘Lahore’.
Sporting the sunniest of musical dispositions from its very first bar, Alex layers radiant pads, temperate bass and elegant strings into its formative production quarter. With the calling, heartstring-tugging strains of its lamenting male harmonies, in the break he doesn’t let the temperature drop by a single degree. Setting up a killer payoff, through a luminously exultant synth updraft, he serves it to the floor in no uncertain terms.
Six minutes and fifty seconds of trance perfection you really don’t wanna miss this month, ‘Atlantis’ from Alex Ryan is now through VANDIT and available here https://www.beatport.com/track/atlantis-extended/10361752 !
