Old Skool Trance meets New Skool Deep Vocal Trance

This week was no ordinary week! Caddyshack starts things off with a Canadian Trance set that quickly became an Old Skool classics set and I follow him this week, with a rare ultra deep vocal trance set. Okay, the tracks aren’t that rare, but the fact that I’m playing deep vocal trance at sub-130bpm is!

Dose Presents Life Force
New Years Eve Rave 1995

I was digging through my collection of old mixtapes this week and found this gem, recorded from a Dose Productions rave here in Vancouver on New Years Eve 1995 featuring live sets from DJ Vitamin E and DJ Lace. These mixes are likely to be available only for a limited time, so grab them while you can!

You can find them on the dj Smiley Mike Soundcloud profile.

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┬áPeter Luts Remix of Inspiration.
