FranetiC - A Brief History of Trance 1 - ARCHIVE from November 2011 [ Classic Trance | Anthems ]

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 :D xXx

DJ Smoothound - Thumpers Revisited Guest Mix - Episode 116 [ Hard House | Bounce ]

itunes pic
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.

Enjoy xXx

FranetiC - The Speed Of Dark - Episode 111 [ Progressive | Uplifting | Psy | Tech | Hard Trance ]

itunes pic
So here is my first episode of 2015 - being British and looking at many of my past podcast descriptions, I feel the need to apologise for it's lateness - Its something to do with British people that's for sure, I was walking up the stairs at work yesterday and as I passed someone on the stairs they apologised to me. Unless they know something I don't, I am finding it more and more strange! Maybe I am fatter than I think!Soooooo, thats a ramble done. Tunes! Starting at 129BPM and winding up to 142BPM, I have recorded a 124 minute 25 track mega mix for you! It starts progressive and journeys through the scales of Trance all the way to a rather oldskool almost DJ Isaac-esque sounding hard trancer at the end from Indecent Noise. It was an auditory treat to mix for you guys - This is 'The Speed Of Dark', I hope you enjoy it! xXx1) Dave Walker - Mango (Original Mix)2) Max Gueli - Xperience (Original Mix)3) Andrew Lang - Presence Of Mind (Original Mix)4) Alter Future - Good Morning (Original Mix)5) Arkham Knights - Disconnected (Original Mix)6) Craig Meichan - Vesta (2nd Phase Remix)7) Meyce & Steve Nyman - Rebirth (Original Mix)8) RAM - Clockwork Orange (Original Mix)9) Orkidea - Liberation (Mystery Islands Remix)10) Bariuz & Exosun - Akinya (Original Mix)11) The Thrillseekers - Find You (Ferry Tayle Remix)12) Solarstone - Purity (Peetu S Remix)13) Johan Gielen - Physical Overdrive (Peetu S Remix)14) Dogzilla - Without You (John O'Callaghan Remix)15) Metronome - Rainfall (Symphonix Remix)16) TAU - Mahayana (2015 Rework)17) Ghost Rider - Turn Around (Original Mix)18) Jordan Suckley - Vermin (Original Mix)19) Mark Sherry & Dr Willis - Here Come The Drums (Sean Tyas Remix)20) James Dymond - Samples Of Silk (Original Mix)21) Eddie Bitar - Chemical Spill (Original Mix)22) Aimoon - Mental Universe (Original Mix)23) Cristian Ketelaars - No Rush (Original Mix)24) Jordan Suckley - Contaminated (Sam Jones Remix)25) Indecent Noise - Cerebrus (Original Mix)
