KELTEK's insights provide a unique glimpse into the creative process, offering listeners and fans a chance to connect with the music on a deeper level. In this article, we delve deeper into the track's meaning, its production process, and the story that inspired 'Vortex.'
- Vortex sounds quite different and experimental compared to your other tracks. Can you tell us more about that? What makes Vortex stand out?
It's more like a technical intro that leads you to a main part where you can find the true Hardstyle sound. Because this track was created to put out in an end show, I wasn't afraid to create a too-long break, which is not very common and quite unexpected nowadays. This and more were surely one of the factors that made it stand out.
- Was there a certain source of inspiration that you had coming up with the idea of this track?
It started out as an assignment for me to create something for the Decibel Endshow. The theme was completely inspired by time travel which gave me the idea to make a long technical buildup that includes time-changing arrangements.
- Is there a particular message that you want to deliver with this track?
Not really, This is more like a composition that came together in my head as a result of imagining the environment and purpose of this track. Also, the need to fulfill a task that I can completely empathize with the theme/story. I just try to imagine the picture of time travel combined with a fully loaded mainstage and fireworks!
