Hey guys - since the move to Podbean a few of my most popular mixes have dropped off iTunes - so at a request I am uploading this episode from my series Brief History of Trance (Only two of them!), the first ever one I did back in 2011. It was my most popular episode ever getting nearly a million downloads on Podomatic. It features some of my all time favourite classics mixed chronologically from 1993 to 2011.
The original blurb with it.....
Of course Trance goes back to the Acid House era in its earliest forms, being heard from about the mid eighties. But the sound really came to fruition in my opinion when Paul Van Dyk released his remix of Humate - Love Stimulation in 1993, definitely the pioneer of the current sound, bringing the european sound completely to the forefront of the trance scene. I have recorded a mix in complete chronological order, with one track selected from each year since 1993 up to the present day. All my own personal preferences and aren't necessarily actual number one tracks from each year, although most of course are recognised and were hits in the scene in various forms over the years. And the cover of course drawing a little inspiration from Stephen Hawkings book, a Brief History of Time.....
Enjoy the history xXx

Back to the Old Skool! Time to journey back to the 90's with this almighty guest mix.
This has been in the pipeline for a wee while, from the legend that is DJ Smoothound. From first seeing him play in Monastery when I was a a young spring chicken back in 1999, he was one of the inspirations which made me want to become a DJ.
No tracklist I am afraid - purely vinyl from back in the day, much of it white label.
One coming from me in the next week or so back to the realms of Trance.
This is episode 115 - I have had to re-upload due to a glitch which only allowed the first 43 mins to be played and downloaded. Kicking things off with a retro 80's sounding track from Orkidea, progressing through some uplifting, psy and tech trancers. I have had a few excellent promo's for this edition from the likes of Harmonic Rush & Binary Finary.
