Dave King - Hobgoblin [Trance/Psy-Trance/Psy-Breaks]

With the disappointment of another dismal West Ham performance in my heart and the sounds of a rather good goa mix in my ears (thank you DJ Soulstone) I wandered back from the pub Saturday and decided the only thing to do was bash out some trance. 2 hrs and an unspecified (but not insignificant) number of dark ruby ales later this was the result.

It's pretty banging throughout and reasonably moody. Its not dark as in twisted, but its definitely late night shit. Think 6am in a dark room with some strobes, like the main room at Turnmills if you ever had the pleasure of experiencing it. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, everything seems to flow together in a way I can never quite achieve with pre-planned mixes but have never managed to quite capture in any ad-hoc ones I've recorded. The mixing does get a little ropey towards the end but then again, dark ruby ale will do that to you

Thanks for the flowers! I just recently told my wife that I need to find some new sets, that are worth keeping. Your set reminds me so much of what used to be called Trance like 8 years ago. It's very well mixed, flows wonderfully and a real find for me! Thanks, mate!

I've been to Turnmills a couple of times, and this mix is the sort of trance I'd associate with John Askew's shindigs down there, provided he hadn't decided to dive headfirst into fluffville by now and given up all the stuff that made him stand out as a DJ in the first place.

Unfortunately, I've always had my problems with this approach to trance. It's always come across as very meandering, with too many breakdowns and too many bells and whistles to get into properly for a guy like me, who likes trance simple and stripped down. I have that problem here too, as I can't seem to pick up any significant momentum until the last half hour or so. I guess this can be attributed to the fact that you were pissed and still mourning The Hammers, and thus not quite as focused either, naturally.

With that said, if this is "ropey" mixing, then more of that, please. I'm SO tired of linear and robot mixing at this point, and the transition from Come With Me into We Are Connected is the kind of stuff you hardly ever get anymore in the land of 30 second intro fades or Ableton.

Solid effort, despite the mix never really clicking with me preferencewise.

proper, this was really good, i don't know what you meant by ropey mixing near the end. it was quite good. i'm generally a big fan of your mixes so my comments genereally turn out how arminfans react to armins latest tune that came out of his arse but this just was really good. i think it didn't grab me until the third tune but i was with it all the way through. trackselection was really nice, love that you played the bpc remix of wizzy, that's a favourite of mine

I like this. Had it on on the plane earlier and the riff of the last tune kicked in just as we came back down out of the clouds, which was nice.

No ropey mixing that I could hear, so I'd pipe down on that front if I were you.

That mix into We Are Connected is something thats been sitting in my bag of "really fucking cool mixes that need to be heard by people" for a while but never fitted so it was good to do, puts a smile on my face everytime The mixes around it are somewhat rough tho, plus I think they sounded alot worse when I was doing them. On listening back that dont sound nearly as bad.

Cheers for listening dude, I was aiming for a few bells and whistles but I think perhaps my tolerance for them decreases as blood alcohol content increases
