The last couple of months I’m getting back into Trance music, and only a few weeks ago I reviewed a mix done by Sied van Riel, promoting his own event in Amsterdam. I was sadly too late, because the event already took place. But no matter what, I got the Rielism-bug again! I remember hearing Sied van Riel’s mixes when I was still living in the Netherlands, and purchasing his albums via the internet, or buying them in my local CD store. Sied is to me the greatest DJ and producer that has ever came out of the Trance scene, and to find him again online made me extremely happy.
Because of Sied Trance was given a purpose in my life again, and my enthusiasme has been enlightened again. After 2005 I’ve lost interest, but the recent years it’s growing on me slowely. The first couple of years it took a while, whilst I was focussing on other styles too. But now Trance dominates my life completely. So much, that I’m downloading everything imaginable, and my hard drive is begging me to stop. There’s not a lot of room left, but I don’t care. Terrabyte or not, it should have room. Room for much more Trance.
Looking at Sied’s Soundcloud page makes a person very happy. For many reasons. The main reason is the fact that it’s jamn packed with Trance music, be it separate tracks or nice mixes. Or in this case, a proper mix, showcasing Sied’s own producing skills. This mix is filled with his own productions, be it originals or remixes done by him. It’s a heavenly mix, because it contains newer tracks (up until 2015) and the earlier stuff. The records that made me fall in love with him. Yes, heavenly.

This is every Trance lovers’ wet dream! A production mix. Filled with tracks by Sied van Riel. My God, that’s just sublime. Before you start having a go, it’s from 2015, so it won’t have tracks from 2016 + 2017. But there are plenty of other mixes you can listen to, trust me.
In all fairness, I am biased. I’m truly in love with the music that Sied creates, since he emerged onto the Trance scene. His music is just picture perfect for me, so you would expect this to get the highest score, and you are absolutely right. I can not state the amount of happiness that filled me after I found this mix online. I never rielly knew that he made these kinds of mixes, I thought it was just the name of his label and the album, but turns out Sied is a busy man.
This mix might be from 2015, but it’s banging, even in 2017. This is sheer beauty, wrapped in a 2 hour long mix. So many great anthems are in here, from ‘Mongoosed’ to ‘MME’, to ‘The Dark Matters’… basically every tune in this mix. And I haven’t stopped listening to it. Sied is my personal hero, and what he has contributed to the scene is so much love, dedication and passion to make Trance music sound absolutely epic. And in this mix you will experience all of that, in 2 hours.
Sied’s mix is seriously tight. Can’t believe I’ve only found this the other day. It’s banging, it’s beautiful, it’s mesmerizing… it’s everything I wanted to hear in a long time. But I think I’ve found the best Trance mix of not just 2017, but of all time! Production wise Sied is the best, and mixing wise too!
Sied, when are you coming to London? I want to hear your music being played live in front of me. I need Sied. Rielly!
Ps. I can’t pick a favourite. I simply can’t. He’s the one producer who’s tracks are ALL excellent.
