About

Veasna turns 5 years old!

In late 2013, I started the Veasna project with one thing in mind: make people jump around on trancefloors! Knowing the genre for a decade already, only that year I started visiting my first parties and the feeling totally captured me in plenty of ways.

I started to try and channel these feelings and that energy into music, which I have been making for a long time already but without any real "goal" behind it. The result was Veasna, and I met relatively quick success - only one year later, Neogoa Records released my probably most famous track Quantum Conundrum. In 2016, I found myself having produced enough music to fit my first full-length album, Energy. Now as it is with releases, not all tracks I had by then made it to that album.

As it so happens, this time of the year, Veasna turns five years old. So I feel it's time to get a few more of those tracks out into the world!

WHAT DOES VEASNA SOUND LIKE?

Chances are you already know since you found this project. ;-)

But for those who stumbled upon this, my SoundCloud says more than I could ever write up. So feel free to give it a listen?

MAKING THE EP A FULL-LENGTH CD ALBUM

The 5th Anniversary EP is a free digital release, so what's the deal with this campaign?

It just so happens that the goa scene still has some CD collectors, myself included! So the main idea behind this is to get the release on CD. However, five tracks would be pretty few for a CD, right? So why not make it a full-length album, additionally containing all previously released digital-only Veasna tracks with some new production? Now we're talking! But because that still wouldn't fill a CD, we add the missing piece that's an unreleased downtempo track, keeping the spirit of previous Veasna albums, closing it on a slower pace.

So, as opposed to the digital EP, this campaign is to

  • extend the 5th Anniversary EP to a full-length album, containing the five EP tracks, four more digital-only Veasna tracks and another unreleased downtempo track, polished up in 2018.
  • get this album on a limited run of 100 glass mastered, retail quality CDs coming in 4-page digipaks.

The tracks on the album will be as follows:

Draft of the digipak's outside artwork - track order subject to change!

ONE-TIME CHANCE AT THE CD

As opposed to the digital version, the CD will NOT go up for public sale and will NOT be reproduced in the future, so by backing this project, you'll be one of at most 100 people to ever hold it in your hands!

Risks and challenges

Getting quality CDs produced costs money, which is essentially what this campaign will be backing. The funding goal would back the production of a run of 100 CDs in 4-panel digipaks.

By the end of the campaign, both the music and the artwork will be finalized and ready for production. However, CD poduction will start only after the project has been successfully backed.

Since the production process may take a few weeks, I cannot fix an exact release date yet. The pledge rewards state "February 2019", which should be realistic in any case. However, at this time, I cannot tell if it'll be February 1st or more like 28th.
