Spirit of Squamish Mix
Killer Epic Trance Mix

Wow, after a terrible experience on Saturday trying to mix with CDJs, it felt great to lay down a killer epic journey for tonight’s podcast. It’s got the melodic and uplifting breakdowns, some stomping hard beats that deliver when they’re supposed to, and some throwback remixes of some classic trance anthems including I Feel Love by CRW and a remix of Urban Hype’s A Trip to Trumpton by Toryn D. This is the set inspired by the Spirit of Squamish where the circle once again returned to gather on Saturday. It was so good to see so many old friends and, as always, make a few new ones too!

Inner Space
Thumpin Deep Trance Mix

I wasn’t sure what I was going to play this week until I was on my way to the studio – and then it all started to come together. This mix is still a work in progress, but I think it’s getting closer and closer to a polished deep trance set. I would love to hear some feedback on parts I should keep and parts I should rework.

Possibly my Best Trance Mix in 6 Months

Well, it’s definitely better than most of the shows in the past 6 months. I’ve had some good parts of shows but there always seems to be some considerable screw-up that keeps me from posting the mix in the sidebar as a featured podcast.

The first mix is likely the shakiest and as the show goes on it just gets better and better until the last 45 minutes are really solid.

The first half is more deep pulsing layered trance that slowly builds. The second half is a little harder and a little more epic with some big ups and downs and several trance anthem remixes from over the years.

Fresh Trance Trax

Lots of fresh trance this week although some of it was previewed last week. First half of the show went down much smoother than the second half. More vocal trance than I usually play, but several of these vocal tracks don’t overdo it and they still have a rougher electro feel to them so they seem to satisfy my taste. Two of the new records that are already standing out to me are the Judge Jules and BK collaboration on Riot Recordings. You might recognize BK from some of the Nukleuz tracks I play in the Hard Trance sets. The other is the¬†Peter Luts Remix of Inspiration.

Classic Epic Trance Anthems

Sorry I missed last week’s show. This week was going to be a remix of three weeks ago but at the 11th hour I started pulling out records and the set seemed to be taking a more classic trance anthem feel. I’ve always had a handful of records that are brilliant but seemingly impossible to mix. This week I brought 5 or 6 of them and overall things didn’t go to badly. The first mix was a little forced but then things smooth out a little better.¬†
