Putting together the Epiphany of Sound series with the best tracks of the 2010s was a big task. The first mix covered most progressive tracks, so the second part is making the transition to the more energetic music. It is just over 2 hours of general Trance, some classical like Sean Mathews Paradise or the Suncatcher remix of Leave The Light On, some pointing to more uplifting Trance like Robert Nickson’s Somewhere In Spacetime or Daniel Kandi’s Change The World. One track that had to be in is the melodic, melancholic monolith that is Time To Rest, which Andy Blueman remade himself in 2011.
All over this mix shows how diverse trance has been in the 2010s and it creates some appetite for the uplifting episodes!
So press play and enjoy!

Epiphany of Sound has been a podcast mostly set in the 2010s. I started it around 2013 and it is still a journey I enjoy very much!
Now that the 2010s have ended my mate Magdelayna inspired me to look for tracks that I find the most inspiring, the best tracks of the decade. He tried to figure out his Top 20 and I tried the same after him but I couldn’t do it. There are just so many outstanding, amazing tunes that I put together the best 100 tracks. The first part sets sail with more progressive melodic tracks from the likes of Cosmic Gate, Juventa, Dimension, Estiva or epic and yet groovy Skylarking by BT.
These are the first 14 tracks and there will be 4 parts following in the next days and weeks!
Estiva feat. Josie – Better Days (Original Mix) [Enhanced]
Cosmic Gate – Crushed (Original Mix) [Black Hole]
Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston – You Got To Go (Extended Album Mix) [Anjunabeats]
BT – Skylarking (Original Mix) [Armada]
Cosmic Gate – Barra (Original Mix) [Black Hole]
LTN – Never Let Me Go (Anhken Sunset Remix) [Enhanced Progressive]
Tomas Heredia – When I’m With You (Original Mix) [Aropa]
Writing it down, but I still can’t believe it: On the next Sunday I will have my 10-year-anniversary with Waves on FriskyRadio! I’ve had so many great shows, so many touching moments – be it with other artists or some fans. I’ve had great guests artist on my show and played so many fascinating and soothing tunes, but this time it will be different once again!
Located in Southern England is the chillout and piano musicianXeuphoria who produces and plays instruments alike. I asked him about being my guest and he delivered a stunning performance of 1 hour piano improvisation! I guess, this will be on heavy rotation for me for quite some time.
So at first you will hear this hour of pure piano and after that I will play you some of the best Trance Ambient tunes you have heard. Just last year I delivered a similar set, but there are more amazing tracks to be played!
The final chapter of the memory series is here! High on Summer has covered a lot of uptempo and more chilled tunes, now this is the most relaxed mix with Roald Velden, New Horizons, Lesh, LTN, Renaldas, The Midnight and wrapping it up with The Thrillseekers‘ In These Arms featured on his album in 2016.
The next to last installment of High On Summer – Memories 2019 is a mix of music you could listen to while sneaking away from a party or leaving the house for enjoyment of nature at night. Don’t think about people, just relax while having a small group, maybe your best friends, or even being alone. It’s a great feeling and you can ponder your own thoughts.
This set contains music by Zgoot, New Horizons, Gregory Esayan, Maiga, Matt Fax and many others. Enjoy!
My memories of the summer 2019 have reached their peak and with this fourth mix we can let our thoughts travel back to the times we woke up from a nice party. Maybe it was Saturday or Sunday Morning, we had our chilled late breakfast and pondered in memories of the great party with some melodies in our heads.
Take this mix to remember those times with music by Ametrine & Maiga, Johan Vilborg, Eimear, Winterya, The Midnight or others. Enjoy!
The second „High on Summer“ for 2019 already paced up and the third mix will keep this direction. With music from Steve Brian, LTN, Tomas Heredia, Dim3nsion or Kyau & Albert it keeps the melodic, nearly uplifting tone and is perfect to remember the festivals or open air parties you held this summer.

Some years ago I made some remixes for my friend Ingo Vogelmann. It was about his album cycle GOD he had created as a series of concept albums. I immediately took a track that represented music for me as a whole: It’s a long road to discover yourself and music helps you doing that. While producing I also learned so much, developing a new style I hadn’t produced before.
Today this track still stands as a statement: Everyday I’m discovering more and more of myself and music still helps becoming the person I want to be. So this track is still as important as can be.
„High on Summer“ has been my summer mix I released every year from 2014 to 2017. Now in 2018 I didn’t make it, but that’s why I decided to make a whole series out of it for 2019. It’s a series in memory of the great summer of 2019 to remember at the end of the year.
It has different approaches: While the opening set „Lying in the Sun“ is more chilled, others like „Driving Through The Landscape“ has more energy. the last one called „Summer Nightsky“ is nearly Chillout then. So everyone should find something to enjoy in this series!
