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.

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!

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.

Hard to Beat Mix
Hard Trance vs. Drum and Bass

Caddyshack really steals the show this week! It’s been awhile since he played a Drum and Bass set and it put a huge smile on my face as soon as he dropped the first track. Don’t miss his mix in the second part of the show that seems to slide back and forth between Drum and Bass and Jungle.

I wasn’t sure how my set turned out this week. I switched it up after being in the psychedelic zone for the past few weeks, and to be quite honest, I barely listened to any of the tracks in this week’s set before the show. A lot of the magic is in the tracks themselves this week. Most of my set features hard trance sounds with the twist of having unique breakdowns that include everything from phat almost crunky beats, to the killer bootleg remix by Organ Donors (what is that from?)

The Time Travel Mix
31 Seconds into the Future of Trance

Last year was a big year for Trancendance and 2011 is already starting strong. After dabbling with a few bootleg remixes last year, this just might be the year that dj Smiley Mike remixes make the rounds. One of the advantages I have, is that I’m really not in it for the money, and since I don’t need to worry about licensing, I can concentrate on bootleg remixes and mashups that would never get licensed. Fun times!

So I’ve been working on a Platipus mix set after it was requested a couple times via the Facebook page. I started with a bootleg mix of Tranquil by Quietman and was just getting ready for a bootleg remix of Calling Your Name by Libra & Taylor when I had to put the Platipus mix on hold. I had agreed to do a collaboration mix with DJ D.Project from the Netherlands and he gave me his part of the mix last week (which is freakin’ amazing!) and so I’ve been trying to find tracks that will live up to the massive stompers that he’s started with (I think I found some :) So watch for our collaboration mix to appear soon…

But I even had to put the collaboration mix on hold so I could put this set together for you tonight! Give it a listen, and if you like it, please subscribe to our iTunes podcast!

The Ignition Mix
Steve Krueger and Ignite Digital

A fantastic Yin and Yang show this week with special guest Steve Krueger in the studio to start things off with a groovy trance set.

The second half of the show picks up the pace with a hard acid trance set featuring two brand new promo tracks from Ignite Digital – Future Manipulation by Burak Harsitlioglu and Alternative by On NRG. Both tracks will appear on the forthcoming Zest album from Ignite Digital, mixed by Simon Qudos (another of my current faves). On NRG caught my attention a few weeks back when I included the track On Stars in The Burning Man Mix (which seems to be quite a popular mix).

Enjoy this week’s show and, if you haven’t yet, take a minute to join the Trancendance Fan Page on Facebook.
