24 Mar Trance Mix 2018 Past & Present | Best Club Anthems
My Latest Trance mix on Mixcloud, as i was putting it together it really stirred some happy memories of some real great days of club classic anthems, laid down by the mighty DJ’s in the day.
Enough of the blurb
1: Woody Van Eyden & Alex M.O.R.P.H. feat. Michelle Citrin – Turn It On (Sean Tyas Remix)
Used this in my last mix and why not, Sean Tyas has a various soundbanks available on Sylenth which are very good, with his own stamp Sean has some great tunes and sounds out there. Visit the Sean Tyas website
2: Temple One – World Beyond (Daniel Kandi & Phillip Alpha Remix)
I did not much about Temple One until again i found his soundbanks that are on various daw plugins, they are awesome to, so i started looking for any trance music tracks that he has made and this is the stand out track for me.

Who is Vimana, drum roll please……………. Tiesto and Ferry Corsten, a project they did together only making 2 tracks, this and Dreamtime. The heritage you could say is very rich.
8: Veracocha – Carte Blanche Originally released in May 1999 and that famous label, which all DJ’s had their collection “Positiva Records”. Carte Blanche is another anthem that was played a lot on the big club circuits, i used to hear this played a lot on the Essential Mix a lot, What ever happened to that friday night build up of club music, go out large it, get back record essential mix. Who is Veracocha…………. FerRy Corsten and Vincent De Moor two legends of the trance family world.

11: NRG – Never Lost His Hardcore (Floorplays Mobile Bitch Remix)
N.R.G real name Neil Gavin Rumney, this is just a massive tune with many remixes, Originally released in 1992, this remix was played a lot by Judge Jules and is just a huge club classic. Another version worth checking out is the Nick Sentience Mix
12: Energy 52 – Cafe Del Mar (Marco V Remix) Maybe just maybe the all time classic of 90’s club music this remix was the first one that i heard pushing the tempo threshold to mix it a little faster and harder and could be used easily at 138Bpm and 140Bpm
Well mixing o logic pro is never going to be easy but have learnt a little more about tempo changes, variable and constant settings can have different effects on different songs, trance is never going to be easy for a daw as there are so many sound sfor it to cope with. Also you can apply flex as monophonic or polyphonic and it can have bad or good effects.
