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!

Epiphany of Sound is always something special for me! This time I had a bunch of tunes from 2018 lying around which I hadn’t played enough and I just had to put them on the show. So this time it’s Kaimo K, Frank Waanders, Will Rees, Craig Connelly, Manuel le Saux & Astuni and many others with their mostly uplifting tunes!
At the end I couldn’t resist playing my new free remix of Matt Bowdidge’s Far From Me which I just released on my Soundcloud. I hope it fits for you!
So just press play and enjoy!
Simon O’Shine – Wutherin Heights (SunEmot BrekShort Remaster Bootleg) [CD-R]
It’s always a pleasure to mix some famous artists and lesser known producers that really kick with their music! This time I picked Giuseppe Ottaviani, LawrenceQ, Terra V, Christina Novelli, Eryon Stocker, Aidream and many more. If you care for Trance you should listen carefully!
Epiphany of Sound is back with Sounds from Robert Nickson, Scott Bond, Rinaly, Mojashi, Manuel le Saux and others. Also I dug out the classic Departure by Dave202 which has been a massive tune back then!
Press play and enjoy!
Katrik & Emotion Love – Prague (Original Mix) [Entrancing Music]
Mojashi – The King (Original Mix) [AlYf]
Ruslan Paulo – Legend (Extended Mix) [Redux 138]
Scott Bond & Charlie Walker feat. Marcella Woods – Waterfall (Extended Mix) [FSOE]
Miroslav Vrlik – Coming Home (Extended Mix) [Redux]
Corrie Theron – Tango (Extended Mix) [We Are Trance]
Aurora Bay – Ayahuasca (Liquid Dream Remix) [AlYf]
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!
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!
Airwave feat. Ludovic Meyer – Batignolles Blues (Ferry Tayle & Stephan R Neverending Story Remix) [Bonzai Trance Progressive]
Envio – Time To Say Goodbye (Original Mix) [A State Of Trance]
Kai Tracid – Conscious (Ferry Corsten Remix) [Tracid Traxxx]
Aruna feat. Mark Eteson – Let Go (Nic Chagall Remix) [Anjunabeats]
Bissen & Victor Dinaire feat. Peter Finley – 2nite U R Perfect (Steve Brian Remix) [Euphonic]
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.
The „classic“ is of Andain’s Promises which has been reworked by Chris Schweizer last year. Still a great tune!
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!
Slowly I’m getting back on track with „Epiphany of Sound“ mixing more and more regularly. Here is episode 96 with some back catalogue tunes from 2018 still which can’t be missed. It’s Driftmoon, Phillip J, Solarstone, Tranzvission, Manuel Roca and others which present super saw melodies and driving beats! For the classic moment I rediscovered Alex M.O.R.P.H.’s New Horizons and loved how Mike Shiver remixed it. Just awesome music!
