„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!
Back in November I visited Northern Germany to play at the Trancecube once again. Unfortunately the real recording couldn’t be recovered, so I re-recorded the live set as perfect as I could remember – set list and timing/transitions should be nearly as in the club. Of course, it is posted on Soundcloud!
Press play and enjoy!

So hidden from some of you a new gig is ahead in just three days! I’ll be hitting the decks again in a club where it all started in 2006.
I’ll be playing 50 solid minutes at the TranceCube revival in Greifswald on Saturday, Nov 16th, 2019. Being aware that it’s a pretty short set I have already prepared a list of maybe 30-40 tracks I want to choose from in this set. I have to make this set on point! As I know most of you can’t be there, there will be a recording and I will post it here later, of course!
I’m excited to go back to my old town and to play a live set again!
Trance and Progressive is a great thing for me but most of you already know my chilled, Ambient side of music and I love it just as much!
Over the last years I collected some productions in this genre. So in my series of producer sets I took the time to mix some of my most beloved Ambient productions. Starting with my remix of Mhammed el Alami’s & Amine Maxwell’s Let Yourself Be Loved over some of the tracks taken from my album Wonders I end with the unofficial remake of Nu NRG’s classic Free Fall I produced in 2014.
If you like melodic pads, pianos and some chilled beats, you should tune in!

It was about time for the next installment of „Epiphany of Sound“! Here we have some progressive sounds in the beginning accelerating to the TechTrance by Sean Tyas and Red Sky in the middle exploding in the vocal and uplifting tunes in the end by Susana, Factor B or the classic by The Thrillseekers.

The latest piano tunes I recorded have led me to playing some faster stuff and River Flows In You is just a flowing melody. Don’t expect me to know or like the books/movies that have afterwards been linked to the piece, I merely love the music this Japanese composer wrote.
There are 2 or 3 points where the recording isn’t perfect, but I’ll accept that for now.
The latest Epiphany of Sound happened some time ago, so I figured it was overdue! I put in some progressive bangers in the beginning featuring Bogdan Vix & Keyplayer or Matt Eray, later I added some uplifting melodies from the likes of Terra V. or Nikolauss & Starpicker. It’s a short episode – but another one will follow quickly!
So press Play and enjoy!

Of course there are some original tracks like Adamantium or Novaturient, but I also included my uplifting remixes like Elements or Strange World for Jedmar.
A special track is the now unreleased remix I produced for Zura by my friend Opt-In.

Some of you might know that I once organised and played at the Trancecube some years ago. In recent years the event was taking a long hiatus, but it will be revived (for an unknown number of shows) and thus head of the party Pete Severano is gathering some resident DJs. He asked us to play some secret favourites we want to share with the #TranceFamily – that means some tracks that aren’t overplayed as „classics“.
Being the overachiever that I am (guilty!) I felt the need to compile two of these mixes with some older tracks and some more recent ones. Today Pete released the second one and I don’t want to keep them secret for you.
Enjoy these hidden gems of classic and new school Trance!

While playing the piano more and more again, I have played some movie scores. I’ve always loved the „Forrest Gump“ movie score and here is the main theme, the feather theme. Don’t tell me it’s not perfectly played (like a pianist could), I know, but it’s a beautiful piece of music!
