Just finished listening to this again. I had to come back for more as this mix is my favorite trance mix of the year. I admit that I am by no means a trance expert, however, in my experience, it's rare to find a mix like this which seems to seamlessly connect most styles on the heavier side of the trance spectrum while also including what seems to be mostly full length tracks. This is made all the better by the fact that some of the individual tracks themselves cover more than one trance style. The mix starts off in tech and psy territory with some heavy synths and percussion. Then, it steadily moves to a more uplifting style for a short time. Next, it heads back into some more intense territory before diving into a trilogy of uplifting vocal tracks. Then, as the mix prepares to start wrapping things up, there is some additional tech trance before it makes the full circle by arriving at a finale with a sound that once again includes both tech and psy trance styles. I thought the finale track really made for the perfect conclusion as it includes a harder section with some of the heaviest percussion in the mix as well as a softer more melodic section that lulls the listener into somewhat of a false sense of security. I say false sense because I thought the final moment of the track that closes the mix was truly a moment in audio hyperspeed! Thank you very much for the mix!
