Epiphany of Sound – Top 100 of 2010s (Part 5)

In the last 3 months I shared some of my favourite tunes of the 2010s. I included some progressive, some uplifting, some even Tech Trance tunes and now here we are with some of the best of the best. This mix contains some of the „uber“tunes I heard and played in the last decade.

Of course I can’t let the COVID-19 situation to stay unmentioned. The virus infection has kept me in my flat for the last 10 days and I have developed a sort of a day routine. Music has always been part and it keeps me happy. I don’t intend t to be cynical, but this situation has given me the chance to finish my Top of 2010s work.

But don’t worry, most of us will be safe soon. So turn to music and listen to tracks by Luke Bond, Cold Blue, Dan Stone, Daniel Kandi, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Ferry Tayle, Robert Nickson, Aly & Fila and so many other already legendary produceers.

Press play and enjoy!

Epiphany of Sound – Top 100 of 2010s (Part 2)

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 – Vol. 100

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!

Epiphany of Sound – Vol. 99

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.

Epiphany of Sound – Yearmix 2018 (Rank 20-1)

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.

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.
