To celebrate the release of his ‘Hyper Dream’ single on Anjunadeep’s ‘Explorations 20’, Weird Sounding Dude shares 10 tracks that marked important moments in his career.

1. Armin van Buuren feat. Sharon den Adel – In And Out Of Love (Original Mix)

The track that started it all for me, absolutely adore Sharon’s vocals and I still get goosebumps even today when I listen to it

2. Tiësto – Lethal Industry (Original Mix)

What I love the most about this track are the synth lines, it’s so captivating and the groove is such a heart throbber, it was the first time I came across such a groove and it completely influenced me and was an inspiration for my future works

3. Depeche Mode – Personal Jesus (Eric Prydz Remix)

Big fan of the drive, aggression the bass synth line creates, the way the track really opens up in the breakdown it’s so emotive and the vocals just add a very unique characteristic to the track. This played a big influence on building my breakdowns”

4. deadmau5 – Faxing Berlin (Original Mix)

Helps me remember and relive all the simplest yet beautiful memories in my life, this track is something else, always hits the spot, just as in love with the song, as I was 5 years ago

5. Arjun Vagale – Terrakoz (Original Mix)

What I love the most about this track is the relationship between the vocals, the groove, and that subtle atmospheric melodic accent. No doubt it inspired me to develop stronger grooves. I still enjoy listening to this track, absolute beast from Arjun, who is one of my biggest inspirations from the local scene

6. Nathan Fake – The Sky Was Pink (James Holden Remix)

“This track made me realize how powerful melodies can be when orchestrated into a beautiful, irreplaceable journey”

7. N’to – Trauma (Worakls Remix)

Being influenced a lot by the melodic house space, this remix Worakls inspires me to narrate stories in my tracks

8. Guy J – Pathos (Original Mix)

Guy has been an inspiration for many us, he showed me the path into deeper progressive space, which I love a lot to this date and wish to never leave, the track just keeps building into monumental hypnotic space, it’s just magical”

9. Cid Inc. – Orbiter (Original Mix)

I am a huge fan of Henri’s works love everything he does, this one, in particular, is one of those tracks which set the foundations for my sounds and is a major influence on my productions

10. Weird Sounding Dude – Embarkment (Original Mix)

One song can change a moment, can change your life forever, that is exactly what ‘Embarkment’ did, it embarked me into a new chapter of my new life, setting personal milestones, creating new pathways opening doors to new opportunities which I never thought would be possible. I am very much grateful to Nick Warren and Petra Ni for trusting my art and giving me the opportunity to release on their label, The Soundgarden
