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.

Fusion Psytrance Mix

This week was as indecisive as I’ve been in a long time! I’ve got ideas percolating for a classic anthem set, and olskool rave set and a Top 10 Eve Records set – and I just couldn’t decide what to play right up until the show started this week.

Good friend Morgan from the Spirit Circle dropped by this week too, although he somehow managed to duck out at just the right time to avoid being on air! I found out that Morgan got turned on to electronic dance music the same way I did, by listening to CiTR back in the early 90s when shows like Homebass with DJ Noah, Synaptic Sandwhich with DJ Cyber and, drum roll please… Digital Alarm Chronometer with DJ Vadar were ruling the airwaves! Little did Morgan know, I became a regular fixture on Digital Alarm Chronometer starting in about 1994!

Trancendance invades Rainbow Groove

DJ BFad needed a fill-in for Rainbow Groove this week and I was able to snatch the opportunity. I’m sure my set was a bit harder than BFad’s crowd is used to, but I did try to funk it up a bit with some heavily remixed tracks by some pretty recognizable artists.
