This track has been lying around on my HDD for several years, dating back to 2014, I think. It’s a remix of one of my favourite tracks from that year (or maybe 2013) and I intend to make it my free download this summer. It’s still work in progress, so this build up part may oder may not be changed in the future. Specifically I’m not sure about the last part of the percussions/hi-hats.
I also have a rough sketch for the breakdown and climax, but I didn’t want to reveal the melody too soon. I’m thrilled to produce again!
Epiphany of Sound is back within very few days! This episode is full of floating melodies, not so much the powerful Trance hooks you hear sometimes. I love those aethereal pads, some plucks or pointing pianos from the likes of Ferry Tayle, Suncatcher, Alessandra Roncone or Johan Gielen.
The „classic“ is of Andain’s Promises which has been reworked by Chris Schweizer last year. Still a great tune!
This time Epiphany of Sound features progressive tunes nearly to half time and turns to the more uplifting ones later. Also, I didn’t include any vocal tunes this time which is rare, but I love vocals and promise you will hear some of them next time! Most of the tunes have been released in 2018 already, but I also promise I will play more new music in the next episode.
For the classic I picked an Andy Blueman remix. The iconic producer made a remix of Neal Scarborough’s Kanya back in 2010 which is nearly 10 years ago. Where have the years gone? Anyway this couldn’t be spared and so it wraps up this episode!
Now press play and enjoy!

The latest installment of Epiphany of Sound explores some not too big names, who have but released on bigger labels. Have you heard of Rituraj Upadhyay, of Aleksey Gunichev & DreamLife or Volmax? Not too well known, but they really deliver melodies from heaven. I threw in some Cold Rush, Steve Allen and Phillippe el Sisi and voilá here’s around an hour of uplifting music!
Slowly I’m getting back on track with „Epiphany of Sound“ mixing more and more regularly. Here is episode 96 with some back catalogue tunes from 2018 still which can’t be missed. It’s Driftmoon, Phillip J, Solarstone, Tranzvission, Manuel Roca and others which present super saw melodies and driving beats! For the classic moment I rediscovered Alex M.O.R.P.H.’s New Horizons and loved how Mike Shiver remixed it. Just awesome music!
Having the yearmixes published I’m going to unheard sounds on Epiphany of Sound again. Dmitry Cooper opens this time with a melodic piano track and others follow with beautiful melodies. Of course I included some tunes that were part of my yearmix 2018! But the finisher is reserved for Andy Blueman’s classic Nyctalopia which is a tune from 2007!
So press play and enjoy!

In 2017 I presented a best of the remakes that were produced in 2016, but I never took the time to do that for 2017. With 2018 gone I now grabbed all the remakes from 2017 and 2018 to mix a set with all of them for 2 years in a row. There are so many classics remade, which sometimes seems obsolete but other times is a real plus in modern sets. Sometimes even the original artists give their tracks a retouch like Steve Helstrip (The Thrillseekers) one of his greatest productions „Affinity“. Nitrous Oxide’s „Follow You“ is even so popular that it got two remakes in this mix. Prepare for some sweet melodies!
Press play and enjoy!

Time flies! This week I will have my 9 years anniversary with Waves already! My guest for this special date is the latest guest I brought to the FriskyFamily: Vince Forwards. He plays a mix between chilled out beats, fine melodies and right out ambient pads. The perfect music for Waves!
My mix will be a special Trance Ambient mix, so it contains trancey tunes, but only pads and melodies. There will be music by Ferry Corsten, Jorn van Deynhoven, Oceanlab and a remix by my friend Magdelayna from Great Britain. Also, I will play a special Ambient remix I produced of one of my own tracks that has never been released or heard before. I’m really looking forward to it!
So tune in to FriskyRadio Chill on February 3rd 2019 at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET!
Finally it has come to this: My Top 20 of 2018 are revealed. I loved mixing every minute of this hearing all those amazing tunes time and time again!
This mix is filled with great producers like Matt Eray, Illitheas, Ciaran McAuley, Ferry Tayle, Sean Mathews, Exouler, Activa, James Dymon, Dan Stone, and the outstanding Cold Blue once again. At the top we have 3 tunes I couldn’t decide which would be my track of the year, because they are so different. The one is with vocals, the other one very powerful, nearly technoid and the third one has such a sweet and petite melody I could never resist.
So just take the time, press play and enjoy!
