Frontiers #1


It's been a while since I've uploaded anything to this podcast, eh?

The truth of the matter is that I ended up getting pretty burned out with music by the end of things. What I had initially planned on being a break of a month or two turned into a hiatus of a few years - not just from a podcast/mix standpoint, but with my original music as well. Quite honestly, I'm still trying to recover in the latter area.

Around the end of 2019, I started experimenting with recording "progressive" mixes along the lines of what you might hear from record labels like Anjunadeep and Colorize, and I discovered that I had a great love for this kind of music. As the COVID-19 pandemic progressed, I recorded them more regularly, and though they haven't always been perfect, I've refined their sound enough to the point that I'm comfortable sharing them.

Over the coming weeks, I'll be uploading some of my favorites from the past few months onto this podcast, and I'll be sure to keep it updated with the new releases beyond that.

For now, here's the mix that kickstarted this whole thing back in November, nearly 3 years to the day that Summit Sessions ended. Enjoy.

Summit Sessions 100: Part 4 - Everest Edition

It's time for the grand finale.

This isn't just the last segment for Summit Sessions 100, but it's going to be the last episode of the radio show for a while. I'm putting the show on hiatus for a month or two, but don't worry, I'll be back. I can't think of a better episode to end on.

Tying off Summit Sessions 100 is one of my ultimate "Everest" mixes, covering the gamut of high-BPM trance, ranging from progressive psy trance to some brutal tech trance and everything in between.

I can't thank you enough for getting me this far, and I'm looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Summit Sessions 100: Part 2 - Monoverse Guestmix

Part 2 of Summit Sessions 100 is a melodic rollercoaster.

Monoverse really knocked it out of the park with his guestmix. Picking up where Blugazer's mix left off, part 2 is a beautifully-flowing journey through progressive trance, and features a total of FIVE exclusive, yet-to-be-released, yet-to-be-announced tracks. This mix really does demonstrate why Monoverse is one of the fastest-rising stars in the scene today.

Same as last week, if you enjoy it, give him a like/follow online.

Summit Sessions 100: Part 1 - Blugazer Guestmix

Summit Sessions 100 has finally arrived!

To celebrate this momentous (to me) occasion, I'm celebrating by doing four weeks of mixes, three of which are guestmixes from some great DJs and producers. To start us off is one from Blugazer, who is one of the trance & progressive scene's most consistently-amazing producers. All of his music has a unique style that sets him apart from everyone else, and this mix is a great example of that.

If you enjoy this great intro mix to #100 (which I'm sure you will), then find him on Facebook and Soundcloud and give him a like/follow. You won't regret it.

For now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
