Episode 45 (April – June 2012)

Hello my dear, dear friends,

Many apologies for the late arrival of this episode.  However, by way of recompense, it’s a 30 track smorgasbord this time round to make up for it so I hope you’re all hungry!

There appears to be a very marked first and second half to this episode, certainly more so than usual, particularly as a result of the Arnej (by the way he is of Bosnian origin – not north American as I mentioned in the show – obviously) influence I’ve been under these past few weeks.  LOVE his deep, dark and pounding take on the trance scene and (this is something I love doing by the way) the way he pitches up his tracks to boost the energy (see episode 15 of the Arnej Podcast for evidence) to devastating effect.  Tracks 8-13 certainly follow this theme and, on another day, would have made for a nice finale of the first portion of the mix.  However, I like the ability that style gives me to build the tempo and energy towards the more traditional trance sound and like to think, were I to play a set in a club of completely my own preference, this whole mix would be a pretty decent harbinger of what to expect.  I’ve covered all my favourite bases!

There are some huge tracks on display in ep 45 so something for you guys to really get your teeth into.  This episode’s influences come from, along with the usual suspects like ASOT and Beatport, The Arnej Podcast, Bjorn Akesson’s ‘Threshold’ podcast and the Enhanced Sessions podcast as well as new albums from Solarstone and Eric Prydz.  I recommend you check those out if you haven’t already.

Anyway – why don’t you just crack on and give it a play hmm?  Judge for yourself…

Thanks for listening!
