Hard work pays off. For Austin's prog/trance duo Tritonal, that maxim has been exercised to its fullest. Diving headlong into the world of trance long after the government shut down the parties, and well throughout the dance music drought of the late 90's and early 00's, Dave Reed and Chad Cisneros were nerding out with each other over the internet about A State of Trance podcasts when they decided to work on a little collaboration. From there, Reed moved from his native D.C. to join Cisneros in Austin, and the two started hustling their tunes and stage show at clubs throughout the great state of Texas and beyond. Half a dozen lucky breaks later, the duo has placed in the DJ Top 100 and gotten to work with some of the biggest names in the business, including Ferry Corsten, Kyau & Albert, Above & Beyond, and more.
Tritonal's debut LP, Piercing the Quiet, has served as source material for a whole slew of re-workings and club mixes. Their latest re-release is for "Can't Keep it In," featuring Jeza. It's out on March 19th through Beatport, and you can have a chance to remix "Lifted" feat. Cristina Soto when you download the track on Monday. One lucky remix will win a treasure trove of prizes from Tritonal.
Chase & Status will be featured on next week's program. Saul Milton chats with Anand Harsh about rereleasing No More Idols for the States with Casablanca Records, the future of bass music, and about keeping abreast of the underground sound--even when you're rubbing elbows with Adele and going up against Coldplay at the Brit Awards.
This episode was sponsored by Rock N Roll Resort v2: A Psybient Soiree, featuring Shpongle, Conspirator, Bird of Prey, Derek VanScoten, and more, March 30-April 1st at Kutser's Resort in Monticello, NY.
