Dream Trance Invasion
Dream Trance Invasion, aka DTI, have been very busy in the studio these past couple of months putting the final touches on new single releases due out in the coming weeks. DTI continue to explore new sounds and combinations to expand on their existing palette of ambient progressive rock. Their newer material explores darker, esoteric topics while remaining true to their laid back vibe. Expect to hear echoes of jazz and odes to New Wave as well. Some tracks have already had previews on various TEA South volumes. This has led to one of those songs – Find You Soon – being in rotation at college radio.
True to exploring and expanding, they have recruited Karl Machat into the fold. Karl mastered DTI’s self titled debut album. After finding out Karl was as skillful with keys as he was with his mastering chops, he was incorporated into their line up. His contributions add a new dimension to DTI’s sound.
This new collection builds on the heady combination of edgy metal riffs and ambient vibes laid on top of steady and solid grooves of the first album. That foundation allowed DTI to explore and deliver a wide range of moods and textures from Mazzy Star, Radiohead to Pink Floyd chill out . This tradition continues on this latest single release “Hearts to the Flame”.
DTI were also privileged to have worked with the very talented guest musicians Alissa Vox Raw, Meghan Morrison and Jessica Spaziale on this new release. DTI music is recorded like before at TEA South studios. Using the resources and instruments available, the DTI combine an organic balance between live instruments and synthesized sounds. The single “Hearts to the Flame” is now available at iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby and many other online music distribution locations.
