You can say whatever you like about the Dutch, that we wear wooden shoes and carry around tulips everywhere we go and stick fingers in dikes, but truth be told, we’ve got the finest producers in the world in our small country. We put partying on the map. Many paved the way for us, but we made it bigger and better (in a nutshell). One of the finest Trance DJs, Sied van Riel, is my personal hero. His album was the last one I reviewed before I moved to the UK, and to me his music always gave me more goosebumps than any other Trance producer. He should deserve more credit, believe me!

Even though he looks like Ross from Friends, he’s extremely talented as a DJ and also as a producer, and also as a label owner. He celebrated 2 years of his own label, Rielism, on the 12th of May in Panama, alongside a few big names: Arnej, BLR, James Kiedis, Misja Helsloot, Reorder and of course the man himself. I’m too bloody late again, no chance for me to take a plane back to the Netherlands and dance the night away, because this man is God. Viewing and listening to him play live in front of me is one of the things written on my bucket list.

This mix might be 2 months old and promoting the event, but that shouldn’t spoil the strength behind the mix. Yes, you do hear Sied talk through the mix, promoting his own event (which you can’t go to anymore), but you might never know: he might come to your town anytime soon? You might be wondering if that rielly will happen (see what I did there), but if you don’t look, you won’t find the answer.

He was the last DJ who’s album I listened to before moving over. It still has precious memories to me, and only the other day I found it yet again, covered in stuff you only find in the Devil’s dungeon. It was already scratched, but now unplayable. Thankfully I found Sied van Riel on Soundcloud and I will get the amount of plays right up. Starting with this mix!

Tracklist anyone?

tracklist

01. Sied van Riel & Leaving Atlantis – Solitaire
02. Perrelli & Mankoff – Unlimited
03. Eryon Stocker & UP3 – Salvadorean Power
04. Miroslav Vrlik – Impact
05. Cold Blue – Once In Time
06. Alex van ReeVe & F.G. Noise – Madness
07. Rene Ablaze – Rock U
08. James Kiedis – Here I Stand

It’s such a short mix, that’s the most disappointing thing about it, but it packs a punch! Sweet Lord, for about a year and a half I had no Sied van Riel in my life, but that’s rielly going to change! What a boss this man is, a super boss! If the night was filled with tunes like this one, the night must have been epic!

Sied van Riel, even after a year and a half, doesn’t disappoint. He always delivers, he always makes sure that I’m in a wonderland. In Heaven. This is so wonderful, so delightful, this is what I want to hear on a loop every second of the day. I couldn’t care less if the people next to me get annoyed by it, I’m loving it!

This mix starts off with a serious record, one that will go in the history books as one amazing record, but so underrated! I’ve listened to other Trance mixes in the meantime, never saw any of Sied’s records in any of those records, which is a pity. I love Sied van Riel’s mix so badly, I’ve downloaded it and burned it onto a disc and will listen to this on repeat tomorrow going to work, at work, going back from work, and the hours I spend at home.

Seriously, ‘Solitaire’ is such a f**king epic record, haven’t heard it before, but it blew my mind away! Beautifully composed, extraordinary vocals, the build up, the drop… everything is perfect. Sied van Riel knows how to make heavenly tunes! And this, this, this is seriously his best track ever!

Sorry, don’t have time to continue typing. You just listen to this mix as I am, and enjoy it. Sied’s best. Heaven in 36 minutes! Can’t wait to be in this estatic mode 24/7. What a mix!

When Soundcloud only shows you Trance mixes, you know something is happening. The last couple of weeks I’ve been on a Trance mode, everything Trance related will be listened to, and today I found a mix by Aly & Fila, well it ain’t brand new, but still focussed on Trance. Truth be told, if they would do anything else, it would look weird, because they are Egypts finest Trance DJs and producers. If they would do a Happy Hardcore mix or a Death Metal mix, it wouldn’t suit them. They know the ins and outs of Trance, and they’ve been a succesful duo for many years, so they know Trance very well. To showcase their passion and dedication for it, they’ve made this promo mix 10 months ago.

Already been listened to around 43k+ times, people seem to love Trance even more. But what makes this mix so special is the fact that it doesn’t contain any new stuff, only the classics. And boy, we all adore and embrace the older stuff. Classics, hell yeah! That’s what I am after. Aly & Fila are known for their Trance, they make beautiful Trance records, so it’s not difficult for them to make a ‘simple’ mix, focussed on the early Trance stuff. It contains so many great anthems, this will make your Sunday even better!

I’ve had a hangover since the late hours of Friday, and I needed this to calm my head down. Paracetamols were my friend, but now I’ve got this mix to keep me companied. Thank God for that, the headache is slowely moving away!

Tracklist anyone?

10. System F feat Armin van Buuren – Exhale
11. Rapid Eye – Circa Forever (Aly & Fila Remix) 
12. Aly & Fila vs The Thrillseekers – Es Vedra

A short but exciting tracklist. Most of these tunes are not played that often anymore, which is a pity, because as the mix title says, they are classics. True Trance anthems, and they will get me through this beautiful Sunday morning/afternoon.

Aly & Fila have made a very exciting tracklist and mix, which made me move slowely throughout the house, doing household  bits and bobs. It’s always nice to have something decent on, when you are cleaning the house. And also when your head is about to explode, Trance music always brings you to another level of euphoria. To me, it takes me back to the early years of Trance, when every week I would go to my record store and spend every money I had on CDs. No vinyl, because I was not into DJing, I was (and still am) a listener.

This 10 month old mix is a good ‘un. This has brought a huge smile on my face. Aly & Fila have made the perfect Sunday mix, containing classics which most of us have forgotten about. And judging the amount of plays it has, people are agreeing with me that there should be more mixes like this one online. We need to go back to our roots, when Trance was sent down by the angels, and made us dance throughout the night on a different level, never experienced before.

An epic mix. Best record? ‘Solarcoaster’. Just listen to it, and you will know why!

This will be on repeat throughout the whole day! I’m loving this!

DJ Midas, what have you done to me? Seriously, what have you done to me? A couple of days ago he sent me this mix he uploaded onto Mixcloud, and I thought it was going to be a walk in the park. Was it bollocks?! He sent me the link, and I had a quick peek, and realised that this was probably the longest mix I’ve ever listened to! Nearly 4 hours long! Normally I listen to mixes after work, but they are maximum 2 hours long. I don’t have that long, 4 hours: when I get home I need food, music, and sleep. He made me listen to it at work. But did it improve my work? Yes, sadly not the workload.

Anjunabeats. Do I need to say more? The label that dominated the Trance scene since 2000. A label started back in 2000 by the people behind Above & Beyond, they are still around, alive and kicking, and bringing Trance to the masses. And one of their fans is DJ Midas, who made a dedication/fan mix, showcasing his love for the label and its music. Normally he mixes Freeform and/or UK Hardcore, so to hear something different is actually a bliss. But the length… pfff… so damn long.

Is it worth a listen? What can you expect in 4 hours? Well, the best of Anjunabeats, according to Midas. He selected around 40 records, and the result? Well, look at the tracklist and judge yourself!

40. Sunny Lax – Misgrey (Original Mix) 
41. Above & Beyond – Can’t Sleep (Signum Remix) 

That’s one amazing and dedicated tracklist, isn’t it? To mix so many records together in a 4 hour long mix, that’s just dedication! And truth be told, it is one of the biggest labels in the world, so why shouldn’t people make awesome dedication mixes?

Midas has gone all the way, and has picked seriously heavenly tunes. This is what heaven might sound like, once you arrive there. Big a** speakers, blasting out the Anjunabeats records on a loop, 24/7. And you know what, I wouldn’t mind that at all. Yes, I’m a harder style enthusiast, but this kind of music (Trance) can touch my soul like no other music ever can. And Anjunabeats is the label that releases the best of the best!

There are so many great anthems in there, beautifully written/composed, and mixed together beautifully, but the one record that touched my heart and made me very emotional is ‘Signalrunners – Meet Me In Montauk (Oliver Smith Remix)’. Now that’s pure Trance. No voice, just pure electronical stuff, blasting through your speakers. But so good, oh so good. If I could have a penny for every time I went back to around 1:23:01 in this mix, I would have a pound. This track is so good, to me a serious contender for ‘best Trance record ever’. Disagree? Well, you just lost your seat in heaven.

Midas, you are a hero for making this awesome mix. I’ve loved every second of it. I’ve embraced this mix like never before, and downloaded this straight away. But in the future, if you do mixes like this one, can you keep them short, and maybe do 4 1 hour long mixes? Don’t have a USB option on my car radio, only CDs. And sadly I can’t listen to this heavenly mix whilst driving.

It’s Midas’ best non-UK Hardcore mix ever. Fact.

It’s been quite a while since I last heard a mix by Ollie Robinson. Or if I’m honest, a Psy Trance mix. I’m more into the harder styles lately, so Psy Trance has been slowely drifting away from me. But thankfully I was reminded that this style is still alive and kicking, and that Ollie uploaded a new mix which was played on QBaseFM. An hour and a half of Psy Trance, who doesn’t want to hear that on this lovely Saturday morning? It’s lovely, so make your weekend even more special.

You know it’s going to be a good mix when the picture already tells you that you are going to experience heavenly music. The tracklist doesn’t do a single thing to me, because I know absolutely none of the artists! I’m so new to that scene, you can say that I’m a newbie. But I still embrace it with both arms, because it’s so ace!

Ollie Robinson’s mix can be found on Hearthis, and also you can find his previous mixes on it too. If you love Psy Trance, that’s the place to go to, visit Hearthis and search for Ollie. It won’t disappoint you!

Let’s see this tracklist (with names that still don’t ring any bells at all!)….

tracklist

01. Ilai – Dance Of The Robot (Original Mix) 
02. Ilai – Starship (Original Mix) 
03. Airwave – The Wrath Of Tambora (Mekka Remix) 
04. Protonica – Codes (Zen Mechanics Remix) 
05. Zyce, Talpe – Rip & Sweet (Original Mix) 
06. Metronome – We’re Going Gome (Original Mix) 
07. Lifeforms – Equinox (Original Mix) 
08. The Key – The Light
09. XV Kilist & Rocco – Who Would You Call
10. Champa – Noa (Talamasca Remix) 
11. Monster Mode – Hot Box (Original Mix) 
12. Laughing Buddha – Smoking The Reefer (Altruism Remix) 
13. No Comment – Out Of The Blue
14. Lost In Space – Liquid Universe
15. Spinal Fusion – Crystal Space
16. Maydo Llokko – Elimination Of The Weak
17. Urban Fury – Polarization
18. ShivaTree – New World Order
19. Tropical Bleyage – Reborn

Still don’t know any of the artists, so let’s skip the tracklist, because I can talk about it for minutes, but we wouldn’t be any wiser at all. As long as Ollie knows the artists and who makes good tunes, that’s all that matters.

Yep, I liked the mix alot. I love the atmosphere it generates. No aggresive stuff, just pure bliss and happiness. It does take you into another dimension. It enlightens you. It makes you happy, cheerful, and in the end you just want to hear more. Ollie’s mix contains great tunes, and they keep you entertained for an hour and a half.

Pure bliss. Yep, that’s what Psy Trance is. I’m loving it, and should pay more attention to it. Especially because the Summer is about to happen and we will hear more mixes containing Psy Trance. I reckon this one one of the first Psy Trance mixes of 2017 I’ve heard, but it won’t be the last.

I’ve got no bad comments regarding this mix. It’s just perfect! A constant flow from the first to the last second. Ollie has done  a great job, fabricating this mix. I’m sure it will work this weekend, press play right now!
