Uplifting Trance Mix

After two weeks off I’m back, throwing down more psytrance. But it’s Caddyshack that really hammers it this week with a killer uplifting trance mix featuring mashups by Armin Van Buuren and Theta. My favourite track this week – Trancemission by Activa!

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.

PsyTrance Mixed on 3 Turntables and Hardcore Drum and Bass

This week I tackle mixing on 3 decks, or as close as I can get at the radio station. The studio here has a Rane Serato SL-3 which has a built in SP-6 sampler. So I can play triples where I start with the samples track and then mix two tracks into it. Unfortunately the studio here only has a 2 channel mixer, so it’s a little tricky mixing 3 audio sources with only 2 faders. Some of the mixes are a little rough around the edges, but I’m pretty sure some of the triples worked out pretty well, so it’s just a matter of refining them. I think you’ll see more 3 deck mixes from me soon. Maybe even a CD this summer.

Caddyshack has gone full on into a hardcore drum and bass phase, which I am loving. His taste in music has traditionally been very similar to mine, so all the tracks he’s been searching out have the kind of sounds and elements that I like.

Dawn of Summer
PsyTrance and Classic Rave Tunes

BAD AUDIO! – This week’s podcast has a terrible problem with the audio feed. Sorry everyone. Should be fixed in time for next week’s broadcast.

My featured artists this week are Ephidrex, a Psy Trance group from Mortsel, Belgium comprised of Jochem Peeters & Joris Marckx. These guys have several releases on Dacru Records, a psy-trance label located in Ghent, Belgium that’s managed by Koen Van Cauwenbergh (Eskimo) and Bert De Decker, better known as DJ Nemesis. I happened across Dacru Records after tracking down releases from Electro Sun, a psy-trance DJ from Beer Sheva, South of Israel, who happens to be my other featured artist this week.

Caddyshack pulled out some tracks that date back, even before the classics, to early rave tracks. Cosmic Baby’s Space Track is unmistakable – but Caddyshack pulls another surprise remix intro! An interesting note on Cosmic Baby – Harald Blüchel was born at Feb 19, 1963 in Nuremberg, and classically trained as a concert pianist who began playing at the Nuremberg Conservatory when he was only 7 years old!

Voyage into PsyTrance

Deep into my PsyTrance kick, I feature three brand new psytrance albums fresh out of the studio. The first four tracks are from Disco Hooligans (Nectarios Meidanis & Jordan Bonyo) Darjeeling Express album, which is available for free download from Ektoplasm. The next three tracks are from the self-titled album Indigo (Isao Sudo & Takashi Sudo of Japan) which was released in January on the Spanish Psy-Trance record label Nutek Records. Finally three tracks from the October 2009 release Everyone Equal by Israeli brothers Tal and Idan Edi on UK PsyTrance label Phantasm.

Back by popular demand, Caddyshack starts his Epic Trance mix with his own rework of Deadmau5’s Jaded track. Looks like Caddyshack finally caught the remix bug!
