My first promotional mix for 2012 is ready to download, and I gotta say I am super happy with the amount of great music some of my favorite artists have composed so far. Rodskeez kicks it off with his remix of 'Out With The Old' by Kasey Taylor - a prog house tune that makes for a great fire starter. Looking forward to playing this one out too if given the chance. Up next we have a remix by 'Guy Mantzur', which translated extremely well at my gig this past Friday at the 'Digital Love' party in my hometown of Brooklyn NY. This was the track that pretty much got everyone in their 'ready, set, go!' moods, and was simply phenomenal when that drop hit. And everyone loves a little Guy J thrown in the mix. At track 3 we have Kassey Voorn's take on 'Azimuth', a big original hit on Guy J's solo album '1000 Words'.
As some of you may know, I throw in classics in just about every mix I play, and this mix is no exception. Moving into the realms of progressive trance, in 2001, Yunus Guvenen gave us track 5 - 'Red Pilot', a deep melodic dreamer that Sasha & Digweed used to hammer from all angles. Following this tune of wisdom, Mr. Sam brings us 'Forever Waiting' a progressive trance beauty from '03. Onto the more uplifting sequences, Oliver Brooks brings us 'Deception', on Activa's label 'Borderline'. Speaking of the man himself, as I am a huge fan of Activa, he implements his sonically washed talents on another 'Borderline' release with his remix of Marcos's 'Hypnotic', which is a tune that I am waiting patiently to play out. Coming up next, Billy Gillies has produced a track that might be my favorite of this year so far. Yes, many tunes give me goosebumps, but for some reason, I remembered the ones I got while playing this during my closing set after BT in the beginning of January this year. Nothing but trance in 'Fly Zone'
Yet another classic in the mix, this time it's by one of my all time favorite production duos, the brothers of 'Transa' who mainly resided with Chris Cowie's 'Hook Recordings back in the day. Their single 'Astro Dawn' is quite simply my favorite production from their 'Transa' moniker, and this one is straight off the vinyl. Continuing with classics and favorite artists of mine, track 12 kills two birds with one stone, as it has 2 of my all time favorites Oliver Lieb, an M.I.K.E. (under his PUSH alias). The PUSH remix of 'Subraumstimulation' is best described as pure, deep, dark trance with a hint of techno in the mix - an ageless tune in my opinion that I will never stop listening to.
Closing things up, we have two uplifters. 'Monada - Turbulence' is a tune that I am really proud to hear about and again, I am waiting patiently to bang this one out. Lastly we end off with 'Transistions' a tune from Ehren Stowers on 'Kill The Lights', a sublabel of 'Recoverworld'. Is it me, or does it have a bit of an 'Activa' influence in there somewhere? hmmmm… Enjoy The Journey..
