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.

Everything Shines
Old Skool Trance meets New Skool Deep Vocal Trance

This week was no ordinary week! Caddyshack starts things off with a Canadian Trance set that quickly became an Old Skool classics set and I follow him this week, with a rare ultra deep vocal trance set. Okay, the tracks aren’t that rare, but the fact that I’m playing deep vocal trance at sub-130bpm is!

The UBC Homecoming Rave Mix

I couldn’t wait for this week’s show after being forced to take last week off! You guys have been asking for a fix of dark psytrance and this week’s set delivers. As usual it’s mixed with a fairly deep and twisted selection of fullon psy. I also discovered a great EP by Planewalker titled Psychic Evolution, which is available for free download at Ektoplasm. It’s a killer mix of breakbeat and psychedelic trance which seems to be shaping a relatively new sub-genre called psybreaks. While still a relatively young sub-sub-genre of trance, I could see more artists like Planewalker and Dapanji creating a pretty popular fusion between the already popular psytrance and breakbeat sub-genres.

Caddyshack drops some new tracks in his set this week too, including a new Nick Sentience remix of Edison Factor and a killer Organ Donors remix of Adapter by Scott Attrill. Another track worth mentioning for Hard Acid Trance fans is Andy Farley & Base Graffiti – No More. Base Graffiti is one of those names I don’t see too often, but it always catches my attention when one of their tracks get’s played.
