CiTR Fundrive 2011

This week is CiTR Radio’s annual fund raising campaign. Last year was a huge success! Your donations helped us smash my last year’s goal of $300 by raising $1,800 towards the station goal of $30,000. With your help, Trancendance was the second highest contributing show.

There are two significant new initiatives underway at CiTR right now, with a third on the horizon. These are the kinds of things your donation may help fund:

CiTR has one of the most respected music libraries in Canada, especially catering to underground, indie and Canadian artists. We have extensive CD and vinyl collections, and we are currently digitizing those into a massive digital library that will greatly improve access and searchability for our on-air DJs and volunteer members.

CiTR just launched a new DJ training program where students can sign up for a free month-long course on how to DJ dance and hip-hop music. The initial launch was extremely well received with over 150 people signing up within the first 2 hours.

In 2012 UBC will break ground on a new Student Union Building which will be the new home of CiTR starting in 2014. This is very exciting for CiTR members and, while UBC will be paying for the construction and basic furnishings, we will be looking to save some money to help improve our new home.

Trancendance first aired in 2001, which means the show is now celebrating its 10 year anniversary.

In the past year our Facebook fan page has grown from 1300 members to 3919 members, from all over the world.

We feature the music-only version of our best shows on our SoundCloud page were they often receive over 1000 plays.

SO….

It would really mean a lot to us and to CiTR if you could help out with a donation. The powers at be seem to have increased our goal to $1,800 after last year’s massive success, but we would be extremely grateful for any amount that you are able to contribute. We have pledged $60 towards the goal for our show, which will contribute to the station’s overall goal of $35,000.

PLEASE…

Donate by PHONE by calling (604) 822-8648 and telling the person who takes your call that it is for the show Trancendance.

OR…

Donate by INTERNET

Thank you so much!

Hard Dance Mayhem with Guyver Wragg and Log:one

Last week’s show was just a warm up for this! If you like hard dance, you’re not going to want to miss this episode. dj Smiley Mike puts the spotlight on Guyver. Guyver is Guy Mearns who hit the scene in 2002 with Man On The Moon and has been releasing dance-floor smashers ever since, mainly on Tidy Trax and Tidy Two. He’s gone by a few other names, most notably The Riot Brothers which released Flashback / Guyver Unit, a favourite that I still have on vinyl somewhere.

Caddyshack had actually planned out a set this week, but just couldn’t make it through my set without throwing it all out and putting together his own Hard Dance set for the second half of the show. His set features Wragg & Log:One. Wragg is Toby Veale and Log:One is James Logan. They caught our attention soon after they hit the scene around 2008 with tracks primarily released on iHDS and Atmosphere Records UK.

And if you get all tingly when you hear some dubstep dropped in where you least expect it, you’re going to love the second half of Cadyshack’s set. Especially the Bashy & Napt track right at the end that throws things right back to the days of Pump up the Jam by Technotronic. Let’s be honest, where you even born in 1989? ;)

10000 Layers Later
A Deep Psychedelic Trance Mix

The sunshine seems to be missing this summer. What better reason to hang out with some lasers and bass-bins behind the decks at your favourite local club.

The Internet feed was down this week, and I thought I had lost the whole podcast, but after a little digging and a little pixie dust, here we go! (And it’s a good one, so find an excuse to be home alone and crank the volume right up to the top!)

The Four Corners of Trance
Deep Trance Mix

This week dj Smiley Mike slows it down for a deep trance mix while dj Caddyshack gets inspired by David Guetta’s recent appearance in Vancouver, and touches on all four corners of trance from the borderline house sounds of Nalin & Kane’s Beachball to the ripping acid sounds of I am Techno by TV Rock.

Trancendance Invades Synaptic Sandwich
Saturday Night Trance

When DJ Cyber asked me to fill in for him this week I was only too happy to jump at another chance to play loud trance this weekend. Synaptic Sandwich has been on-air even longer than Trancendance, filling the 9-11pm (PST) Saturday Night time slot on CiTR 101.9fm.

Tonight’s show got started about a half hour early at about 8:30 with some of Christopher Lawrence’s live set from Burning Man 2007. DJ Quake brought us across the 9 o’clock hour getting us warmed up for my live mix.
