My Best Trance Anthems
Visual Attack Formation Mix

So I started going through my vinyl collection yesterday. I used to do it all the time. Now it only happens once a year, if that. Anyways, I came across a ton of rare white labels and test pressings, started looking up tracks on discogs and seeing if anything was available on iTunes. There were lots of bootlegs and test pressings that just aren’t available from the digital stores, but it inspired this trance anthem mix.

Summer 2011 Trance Mix

I was overdue for a real bangin hard trance set, so tonight started to get it out. It took a couple records to get back in the groove, and of course, even after some 15 years or so of DJing, I forgot to check a needle, and sure enough it was jammed full of dust. But after the first couple records, I was back into it and having a blast.

Now Caddyshack’s set is NOT to be missed this week! Wicked track selection and very nicely put together. What style you ask? Well, Caddyshack’s kind of been known to cross styles. There’s some epic trance, some vocals, some acid trance… it’s just everything good rolled into one.

Trancendance Invades Synaptic Sandwich Again

It’s BC Day Long weekend and Trancendance took over Synaptic Sandwich once again. This set is close to a final mix. Only a couple tweaks left in the tracklist. This play list is really cool to listen to while camping with the best tent for rain.

The show got warmed up with a bit of Activa’s Summer Promo Mix.

Bangin Trance Mix Inspired by the Gareth Emery Northern Lights Tour Vancouver

This show follows hot on the heals of Gareth Emery’s Northern Lights tour in Vancouver. Several of the tracks are from his set, which was a non-stop crowd pleaser, including many tracks that seemed to be quite a bit harder than expected.

This week’s show caught a lot of inspiration from Gareth. Thank you to everyone who contributed to such a great event!

dj Smiley Mike Gareth Emery Inspired Bangin Trance Mix

There’s a couple spots that could use cleaning up if I were to rerecord the set. The BK track at the end isn’t a perfect fit and the Fausto & BRK3 track is a little harsh in the mix. I mix on the fly quite a lot, and this set has 10 tracks that I’d never played before, so, all in all, it came out pretty well for a first cut. I think several of the tracks will show up in a new set before long, maybe even on Saturday when I fill in for Synaptic Sandwhich.
