Massive Tribute Mix To Giuseppe Ottaviani (2018)

Giuseppe Ottaviani

The other day I got tagged in a post on Facebook, and it was done by Nico Suffis. You know, the man who really really loves Trance music. He made this dedication mix for Giuseppe Ottaviani, and as you are all aware, I’m a fan of this Italian superstar DJ/producer. So it was an obvious reason why I got tagged in this dedication mix. Thanks Nico for that. But this is not his first dedication mix: other mixes were for Aly &Fila, Bryan Kearney, John O’Callaghan, Tiesto, and many more. He’s an active DJ, this Nico. And we can only salute him for doing that. Read More

Chris Blaylock – Rebirth Takeover 3 (2018)


It’s the Sunday after the victory on Sweden, and the majority of English people are literally still in shock of reaching the semi-finals. I’m not, but maybe that’s because I’m not English (yet). And I’m not bothered about the football, or fussball as I would like to call it. I’m more into music, and get excited about everything music related. Yesterday was a pretty hard day for me: music wise only the harder styles were on my timeline, but towards the end of my day I found a nice mix by Chris Blaylock,  a Rebirth Takeover guestmix. And it contains Trance music. Should I say any more? Read More

Rielism – Eryon Stocker Guestmix (2017)


With a brand spanking new looking website you need to get new music onto it, otherwise people might loose interest. Now, to keep you all entertained, I have looked and found a good mix, a couple of months old, but still extremely hot. And I have to say that I’m embarassed for not have found this before, seeing as I’m a huge Rielism fan. But never mind, I have found it, and now it’s time for me to talk about Eryon Stocker’s guestmix for Rielism, to promote his ‘Commander EP’.

Giuseppe Ottaviani presents GO On Air 2.0 - LIVE from Toronto

It’s Sunday, and the weather is absolutely perfect. It’s already nice and hot outside, and I’m feeling the good vibes coming through my body. The sun is doing me good. But what could make today even better? A wicked liveset from an artist that never disappoints. Only a handful are beyond the level of epic, and one of them is Giuseppe Ottaviani. Since I discovered him many moons ago, I always go to his Soundcloud page, to get my Trance kicks. He’s my supplier of awesome music, and guess what? He’s got a brand new GO On Air 2.0 set, recorded at U4RIA in Toronto.

Giuseppe Ottaviani Presents GO On Air 2.0 – Live From Lush, Portrush, NYE (2017)

No Comments

It’s becoming a common thing: reviewing a Giuseppe Ottaviani liveset. The last two were recorded at the ADE and the other at Guangzhou, China. This month’s edition was recorded at Lush!, Portrush, Northern Ireland. On the 31st of December 2017 he played there, with fellow DJs John O’Callaghan, Shugz, and the Northern Irish Trance Family (never heard of them before). For £15 you would dance your way to the new Year in style, with legendary names playing. Now that’s a NYE you wouldn’t want to miss.

Giuseppe Ottaviani is a legend, and is gaining a huge fanbase with his GO On Air 2.0 liveshow, which has led him all over the world, playing wherever there’s a craving for Trance music. And if you’ve heard these sets before, you know he’s there to leave a lasting impression. His sets are superb, and live. That’s the thing: he makes every night unique and special. And that’s what I like. But that’s not the only thing….

Here’s the tracklist, a true feast for your eyes. Just look at this beauty!

tracklist TCD

01. Rafael Osmo – Renaissance (Giuseppe Ottaviani Remix) 
02. Amos & Riot Night – Interstate Four
03. The Moon feat NU NRG – The Moon Loves The Sun (Giuseppe Ottaviani 2017 Rework) 
04. Giuseppe Ottaviani – Live ID
05. Giuseppe Ottaviani – Slow Emotion 3
06. Filo and Peri vs Simon Patterson feat Eric Lumiere – The One Anthem
07. Giuseppe Ottaviani – Live ID
08. Giuseppe Ottaviani feat Lo-Fi Sugar – Rush (Giuseppe Ottaviani 2017 Rework) 
09. BT & Jes – Every Other Way (PureNRG Remix) 
10. Giuseppe Ottaviani – Legacy
11. Giuseppe Ottaviani – Live ID + Queen – Flash (Sample)
12. Eric Prydz – Opus (PureNRG Bootleg) 

And again he has done it. How does he make every bloody set amazing? During the early noughties it was Tiësto who made everything work brilliantly, but now, during the tens (tenties? what is it called) it’s Giuseppe Ottaviani who does every with a lot of passion and dedication, and makes it work. A truly underestimated legend in the making. A superstar.

He might not even care about the money, but he’s more focussed on the actual music. And that’s what’s been missing in the scene. The big names started to become bigger, and decided to make music to a wider audience. Influenced by the bigger styles like Pop music, it just made it worst. I don’t like it, when they change the style completely, basically for extra sales. Giuseppe stays true to the Trance scene, and whenever you see him play live, you can see a man with a passion, dedication, and a smile from ear to ear. With this set he blew away the audience in Northern Ireland.

I can only give credit to him, for making yet another amazing set, and also for making awesome music. It’s a gift that only a handful of artists have. Literally everything they touch, turns into gold. Even the air Giuseppe is breathing, turns into this. And during this set he played the dopest track of 2018: ‘Legacy’. What a brilliant anthem. He could have played this on a loop for 2 hours and I wouldn’t give a shiny shite. This is pure, this is Trance. And I’m digging it.

Anything bad about this set? Erm. Well, I don’t know. I seriously don’t know. Mmm, difficult. It’s for free, it contains awesome records, and you get Giuseppe talking a bit through it, to highlight certain records. I can’t think of anything else we actually need? Even the crowd shouts out loud, and you can hear it. They are loving it, and so am I!

A big set, and the usual score.

Perrelli & Mankoff – January 2018 Mix

Perrelli & Mankoff - January 2018 Mix

It’s Trance time again! Yes, already listened to several other styles and genres, but I want to ease down now, and relax, and the only style that does it for me is Trance. Well, Jazz mellows me down too, but that’s a niche market, I don’t think anyone would want to read a Jazz review. Anyway, I wanted to hear some Trance tunes, and I suddenly remembered I liked and reposted a Perrelli & Mankoff mix a couple of weeks ago, during the time I couldn’t go on my website due to login issues. But now I can listen to it, and review it.

Those two names, you must recognise them right now. Seeing as I’m a fanboy of these two, and already interviewed them (read the awesome and best interview ever here!), it’s the best thing to do right now. They’ve done a guestmix (maybe I should ask them to do a guestmix for TCD?) and you can find it right now on Soundcloud. And with only a low amount of plays, I think it’s only fair to increase the amount of plays. This mix deserves more, because it contains the finest record of 2018, ‘Satusfaction’. There, I’ve said it. You already know which track is my favourite.

Let me show you the tracklist!

tracklist TCD

01. Marco V – Muraco (Extended Mix) 
02. Ace Ventura & Liquid Sould vs The Thrillseekers – Neurothesia (RAMashup) 
03. Timo Maas – Der Schieber (Kriess Guyte Rework) 
04. Da Hool – Meet Her At The Love Parade (Nalin & Kane Remix/Paul Denton Luminosity Rework) 
05. Bjorn Akesson vs Alan Walker feat Iselin Solheim – Faded Circles (XiJaro & Pitch Mash-up) 
06. XiJaro & Pitch and Type 41 – Chase Your Dreams (Extended Mix) 
07. Sunset feat Jess Morgan – The Gift Of Giving (Extended Mix) 
08. Darren Tate vs Jono Grant – Let The Light Shine In (2nd Phase Extended Remix) 
09. Steve Allen & Zack Mia feat Fenja – Way Back Home (Original Mix) 
10. Perrelli & Mankoff – Statusfaction (Original Mix) 
11. Paul Denton – Final Sunset (Extended Mix) 
12. Jones & Stephenson – The First Rebirth (Talla 2XLC Uplifting Remix) 
13. Thomas Schumacher – When I Rock (Deathmind Bootleg) 

Bloody Nora, it’s not Satusfaction, it’s Statusfaction. How the bloody hell did I get that wrong? I have read it wrong from the moment it was known online. Shit. I do apologise. Well, it’s  ‘Statusfaction’ which is my favourite record in this mix.

Of course they had to fit in a few Rielism tunes (who wouldn’t?) and also a few classic anthems remixed, like ‘Meet Her At The Love Parade’ and ‘The First Rebirth’. The end result is a smashing mix, which will get us through this weekend. Like many people I’ve had a horrible week, but with a mix as good as this one, it makes the weekend worth while.

As I said before, the best record is ‘Statusfaction’. I just love it since the first time I heard it. Absolute banger. Perrelli & Mankoff are doing the right thing, and slowely become more known in the world of Trance. They are the future, trust me.

Anything bad about this mix? Erm, not that I can think of. Nope, nothing bad. It’s a free mix, containing 13 absolutely epic records. What else do you want?

Download this, and spread the word: Perrelli & Mankoff. A dangerous duo! Worth a listen, wouldn’t you agree?
