Some weeks ago I published my producer set for music I released in the progressive genre. Now here’s a collection of all the more melodic and uplifting tracks I made from 2014 to 2018. 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.
So press play and enjoy!

The next Epiphany of Sound is here! Now I can reinstall some new tunes, though most of them are not from 2019. But I had to play them either way since the beats, the melodies, the synths, the atmosphere is epic! There’s a somehow psychedelic remix by Ciaran McAuley, which also features uplifting elements, there’s Miroslav Vrlik with his massive style, there’s ReOrder featuring male vocals or the reworks of We Control The Sunlight and Mind of the Wonderful. They all had to be included and add up to a pretty powerful episode!
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!

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!
20. Matt Eray – Marbella (Original Mix) [CD-R]
19. Dustin Husain – Max Revive (Extended Mix) [Infrasonic Pure]
18. Solarstone – Thank You (Extended Mix) [Black Hole]
Part II of my Yearmix is here! I included the ranks 40 to 21 with Ferry Corsten, Sean Mathews, Ula, A.R.D.I., Neev Kennedy, Daniel Kandi and so much more. This is not even the best of 2018, but we’re getting close.
Press play and enjoy!
40. Miroslav Vrlik & Andre Visior – Solaris (Extended Mix) [Digital Society]
39. Daniel Kandi – What Happens When We End (Extended Mix) [Always Alive]
38. Susana & Neev Kennedy – The Promise (Kaimo K Extended Mix) [Amsterdam Trance]
37. Ana Criado, Steve Allen & Solis & Sean Truby – Frozen River (Steve Allen Extended Mix) [Uplift]
Maintaining Epiphany of Sound was hard in 2018. I only released 10 new episodes which means not even an episode every month. From September to December I didn’t even manage to record a new one! This was a hard time for me, going from week to week, having tunes ready (because I still looked for new music!), but not finding the time to mix a set.
BUT now it’s 2019 and I just mixed three episodes: My 62 most loved tracks of the year! I split it in three parts because of the length. In part 1 you can hear my top 62 to 41 featuring Magdelayna, Daniel Kandi, Thomas Datt, Ciaran McAuley, James Dymond, Dim3nsion and my own (only) release of the year: First Point of Aries.
Digitally Imported once again invited me to be part of their Vocal Trance End Of Year Show which I have been attending since 2014. I put together some of the best tunes of the year including Richard Durand, James Dymond, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Steve Allen, Susana, Activa, Lostly, FloE, Cold Blue and so many more!
Maybe one of my favourite tunes called Empathy by Alan James is non-vocal, but I couldn’t walk around it in this mix. Tune in to hear all the top tracks!
Tenishia & Susana – Never Let You Down (Chill Out Mix) [RazNitzan Music]
Giuseppe Ottaviani feat. Sue McLaren – Wait Till You Miss Me (Original Mix) [Black Hole]
Aly & Fila feat. Haliene – Breathe Us To Life (Monoverse Extended Remix) [FSOE Parallels]

The last Epiphany of Sound is four weeks old and so I had to take the time to mix another Trance set! This time I took some Aly & Fila, Dustin Husain, Miroslav Vrlik, FloE & Alex Byrka and other quality producers and put it together into over an hour of pumping beats and sweet melodies. At the end I put a new Billy Gillies remake of Chicane’s collab with Bryan Adams called Don’t Give Up which really fits the rest!
All smaller producers in the business always are happy about airplay and exposure. So this episode is nearly merely for these more or less unknown procuders like Fresh Code, Katylyst, Matt Eray, Fredd Moz and many others! Only at the end I couldn’t resist to mix in some well known names with extraordinary tunes!
