I initially made this track in 2015. It felt wrong, though, so I tweaked it over and over. Finally I realized it is simply off the genre has no commercial potential at all – no matter if it’s mixed properly or loud. So now I give it away for free.
Artistically, I find it a success – I had an idea and realized it. The track is just what it was supposed to be. Just the idea was wrong to begin with. Maybe it would work better if I picked other scale than major, now it seems to be way over the top.
The word “epic” has been abused recently. Now it’s almost as popular as “cool” was when I was young. People use it to describe anything that’s good. Luckily the term “epic trance” still functions with its own, primary meaning.
Epic trance – spectacular and breathtaking. Orchestral, symphonic, instrumental. Anthem breakdowns. Strings. Powerful leads. Opera arias and beautiful pianos. Also, acoustic instruments. They’re all in here.
Now, enjoy the mix.

On a personal note, I find this set a big achievement. It took me a while to complete the tracklist to get the right flow and completely matched keys. I used my recent mixing setup to ensure the flow is as smooth as possible. It’s good to feel every next mix is getting better. i hope you’ll enjoy it as well!
Spring Mix is coming on March 22, as always. In the meantime I want to finish Woven Drops remix, which is almost done but I can’t find the time for it all. But it’s coming sooner or later.
