FranetiC - Primordial [ Tough Progressive | Tech | Psy | Uplifting | Hard Trance ]

Welcome to the weekend - well, the middle of it - in the UK anyway!
I have made a surprise episode! I have been doing them monthly in the past year so this one is a leetle early, I just found some absolute belters I thought I would have a productive weekend and grace your ears with all the delights I have found. 

Straight in with the tough stuff- quite techy this time around - MaRLo can stay, what a whopper with Darkside. Not much in to what he has been churning out recently until this BEAST! LOVE LOVE LOVE... Some epic uplifters in here and some classics too - ending with a small tradition I seem to have built in to the past few eps, something from the man Scot Project - his remix of Universal Music! 

Enjoy guys...

Hey hey everybuuuuudy!

I hope you are all having a great weekend thus far! 

Here is the latest episode in the FranetiC podcast saga - 'Bintang' the Indonesian word for star, taking you on yet another cosmic journey through Trance <3

This mix again follows suit with recent tradition in that we start off with some progressive loveliness at around 130bpm and winde up to some old skool classics - including the legend that was; Tillman Urchmacher - On The Run, which is one of my all time favourite tunes; for some reason I have not played yet. We end this episode on some classic Hard Trance from the early naughties! I hope you enjoy... :)

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

This mix takes you on a chronological journey year on year from 1991 to 2015; a track for each year except 2000 where I honestly couldn't pick the two so just smashed them both in- so its a double whammy on the year 2000 - what the hell, it was one of the best years for Trance. 26 stompers in total for you to wrap your lobes around....The same as last time the tracks are 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.

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
