SONG OF THE DAY: Tritonal ft Underdown – “Bullet That Saved Me”

That stratification between subgenres seems to be collapsing more and more.? There are no longer pure trance producers or progressive producers – all the different sounds are melding together and, in the right hands, becoming epic creations.? With “Bullet That Saved Me,” the Tritonal duo blend the progressive and trance sounds they are known for with stadium and harder electro while incorporating rock and downtempo elements in the breakdown.? Adding the strong male vocal is a nice touch, having him sing emotionally relevant, if not edgy, lyrics- even more a bonus.? It’s also nice to hear producers who can actually produce vocals on a beat, rather than just throw them all over a 2-minute drop in the middle of a track.? The song definitely has a personal message that we all can relate to and makes for a great first taste of their upcoming ‘Metamorphosis’ EP which is set to drop during the WMC.

INTERVIEW: Tritonal (2012)

American trance superstars – it has a nice ring, doesn’t it. Tritonal, the duo of Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed, are from Austin, Texas, and have risen quickly in the trance scene.? Early support from big names like Armin van Buuren, Above and Beyond, Ferry Corsten, and Markus Schulz helped propel them in the scene.? Their debut album ‘Piercing the Quiet,’ released in 2011, featured eight top 20 Beatport singles (five of which topped the Trance chart). ?A double-disc set of remixes, ‘Piercing the Quiet: Remixed,’ was released in September with rerubs by Beat Service, Super 8 & Tab, Seven Lions, Maor Levi, and others, as well as remixes by the duo themselves.? Listening to their tracks, it’s easy to see why they’ve developed such a massive legion of fans, who call themselves ‘Tritonians.’
Ron Slomowicz:? Were you guys DJs or producers first?
Chad Cisneros (Tritonal): Obviously producers, still to this day we consider ourselves producers who DJ.

RS: How did the two of you meet each other?
Dave Reed (Tritonal): An online dating service… Just kidding, we met online through forums discussing sound design techniques.
