Finally here it is! Official schedule for End Of Year Countdown 2015 at Afterhours.fm.

Merry Christmas everyone! For these of you who didn’t get their present yet or are unsatisfied with the one they got, here’s the mix from me. Best 20 tunes of 2013, sorted in ascending order. This is my 8th yearmix and probably one of the best ones. Full on trance!

As you can see (or hear) from the tracklist, there are a lot of techy tunes in there. Psy trance becomes very popular and just better and more varied that it used to be few years ago. There are little of progressive sounds in the mix and no real hard trance / hard house trance as well – but that depends of what and who I follow at the time. There are just way too many tunes to ever check them all.
Many talented artists emerged. To name a few: Dreamy, Jimmy Chou, Ascania, Harmonic Rush, Adam Ellis, Ben’Yala, Abandoned Rainbow, O.B.M. Notion, Marcelo Chagra. Allen & Envy have united to provide endless stream of heavy banging trance. I wonder how could I not heard of French Skies or Ico before, they are amazing. Check them all if you didn’t already 🙂
It’s been good year for me, as well. Finally met people who shared similiar interest. back then in 2006 when I started, I didn’t know ANYONE who enjoyed trance in person. Now everybody and their dog is DJ and producer, so I get the chance to share my music with some audience. Finally started playing live, so far only as a practice. Also, finished 4 productions in total. Each of them is better than previous. Every next tune and mix gets more interest, so soon I may come back to glory from 2007-2008. 2014 will belong to me }8). Now back to work.
It seems that I already posted that set everywhere but on my own blog.

When preparing this, I noticed there are significantly less tunes to choose from this year. It may be because general quality of releases decreased (which is not true). The real reason is that I don’t spend whole day on listening, browsing and searching for best tunes anymore.
When I ran radioshow till 2011, I listened to music all the time, everywhere I could with earphones on. Over last year I gave up, there is no more motivation to do that. Believe me or not, but listening to music can be tiring if you try to track it all the time.
There is also second reason – I spent quite significant amount of time producing my own tunes, which finally pays off. “Nice”, a track finished just yesterday, is exactly what I wanted it to be and tried to make.
Unfortunatelly, man has only one pair of ears. I wish I could listen to more tunes at once, but it’s impossible. Production conflicts with mixing.
Luckily, now I have enough time for both 🙂 Stay tuned.
