Eric Allen Guestmix Leading up to Benny Benassi at VCC

I’m pretty stoked to have Eric Allen on the show this week! I knew there was something about his style that I was drawn to, and as we chatted a bit more about some of his influences and styles, there seemed to be a common theme: high energy stuff that stays interesting. Probably the most fascinating thing was that, with such a similar taste in music, several of the artists he plays aren’t even on my radar! You can be sure that I’ll spend the rest of the week trolling through some of the artists and labels that he played on tonight’s show.

Don’t miss Eric this weekend when he opens at the Vancouver Convention Centre for the Benny Benassi show (with Sander van Doorn and Arty) put on by Blueprint Events. You can also follow Eric Allen on Facebook or check out his mixes on Mixcloud.

The Bomb Session
Deep Uplifting Trance Mix

After many weeks of PsyTrance and a few weeks of talking about a new deep trance mix, Smiley Mike finally delivers with a mix of new and old tracks including deep trance, uplifting trance (or epic trance as I like to call it) and even a few vocal trance trax.

Caddyshack follows up with some uplifting vocal trance of his own, but his set, and the entire show – is cut about 10 minutes short after security guards walk into the studio and inform us that we have to leave the UBC Student Union Building immediately due to a bomb threat. (I’m not sure who makes a threat on a nearly empty building at close to midnight on a Sunday – but that’s how it went down!)

The Untitled Trance Podcast

I’m listening to the first third of this weeks podcast right now and watching Metrotown pass by while I ride the train through the blue sky on my way back from another busy day that started off with three hours of dentistry this morning. So now you get why this week’s show is untitled. I could have called it the launch show, but that seemed a little too corporate. Yeah – I do have a day job, and this week I was right in the middle of it during the show. How is that possible, given that the show airs from 10pm – Midnight in my timezone? Well, let’s just say I’m a dedicated employee that is lucky enough to work with some pretty dedicated people.

Alright, so none of that really has to do with anything musical. What’s on the decks this week? I’m still well into my PsyTrance kick. Steve played some of the wonkiest, most twisted trance I’ve ever heard (sorry, I wasn’t able to capture the track list), and Caddyshack dropped a fine mix of old-made-new epic trance.
