The next opportunity to completely relax is just around the corner! Waves will return after the 11 years anniversary (piano only episode) with a man who got his show Sounds Paradise just after I had him as a guest last year. Sergey Tarasov has proven that he can play the best chillout and thus I invited him back!
Of course there’s another hour of ambient, piano and pads for you ahead with me. I prepared a mix with the likes of Kori, Ferry Corsten’s new project FERR, Yusuke Teranishi and a small tribute to Daft Punk, who have announced their parting last week. Also I included a tune by Dirk Maassen. His was the last concert I heard in March 2020, just before the pandemic hit hard in Germany.
So get ready and tune into the Frisky CHILL channel on Sunday at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET.
7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET – Sergey Tarasov 8 a.m. EST / 2 p.m. CET – Addliss
Trance is back with Epiphany of Sound! A month after my latest mix I put together some new tunes by Ferry Corsten & Purple Haze, Terra V, Airborne Angel, Frank Dueffel, Giuseppe Ottaviani and many others. The classic comes once again from Andy Blueman, who produced pure gems in his early days.
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!
Tiësto – Forever Today [Magik Muzik]
Ciaran McAuley – The Sunrise Through Your Eyes (Extended Mix) [FSOE]

The anniversary episode is finally here! I started the Epiphany of Sound podcast in 2013 and back then it was a great step to professionalize my work. I produced the opening and the soundbits to brand my podcast and build it around the more powerful nuances in Trance. I’ve had some really great episodes I like to listen to once in a while and over at hearthis or Mixcloud you can really listen to all the episodes!
The anniversary episode focusses on tracks I haven’t played often enough or that I can’t stop to play. Sometimes they’re from the second row of successful tracks, not the top played tracks in the genre, but that’s what I love about them! Some of them are from the pre-Epiphany of Sound era, which is pretty long ago in regard of such a quick industry. The name list is too long to reproduce it here: Daniel Kandi, Ferry Tayle, Ferry Corsten, DNS Project, Suncatcher, 7 Skies, Temple One, Giuseppe Ottaviani, John O’Callaghan…nearly every track in here is a classic!
Thus you shouldn’t hesitate and get this 2 hour mix playing! 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!
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]

Press play and enjoy!

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!

Just within a week here’s a new Epiphany of Sound! I found some really amazing tunes, some on my standard labels, but some really found my ear after looking for special producers. The opener Fluid Karma by Thomas Datt is one of those tunes that caught my attention – it is somehow fluid, shows some progressive Psytrance influences but is still extremely beautiful!
The rest is music by Jam Da Bass & DJ T.H., Dim3nsion, Daniel Kandi, Brent Rix and many others, which is also not to be missed.
Press play and enjoy!
