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.

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 Froster.ca 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.
