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.

Deep Space
Deep and Remixed Classic Trance Anthems

It’s been week’s and week’s since I posted a tracklist! The show goes on, but the last four or five weeks are iTunes only. Not because the shows haven’t been good, actually they’ve been quite good, but life has been busy so I’ve only been doing the bare minimum.

In the last couple week’s I’ve been inspired to dig out some of my old classic trance anthems and mix them in with some deep trance. This set was recorded just a day or two after last week’s show and I happened to be recording it. It just happened to be Caddyshack’s birthday too, so a birthday mixtape it is!

Deep and Remixed Classic Trance Anthems:


Space Manoeuvres – Part Three (Breaks Mix)
Space Manoeuvres – Stage One (Markus Schulz Dark Star Mix)
Habersham & Numinous – Rhetorical Question (Chris Micali Remix)

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.

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 Bl├╝chel 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!

Anniversary of the 1999 Spirit Circle Gathering in Pemberton BC

Well, the show goes on even if the website doesn’t get updated as often. Trancendance has been on the air now for 9 years! Before that, on a sunny February afternoon back in 1999 (if I remember correctly) there was a little ol’ gathering in Pemberton at the base of Mount Currie. This is the home of the Lil’wat Nation, and it was there that we entered into the Spirit Circle for an epic night of celebration.

There is no question in my mind that anyone who was there will remember being so — you all know who you are.

This past Sunday Caddyshack and I had an exceptionally good show and I couldn’t help but wonder if the Spirit Circle had a little something to do with that.
