Anyone out there, especially my veteran trance lovers, remember when live DJ mixes were actually recorded 'LIVE' directly from microphones?? When 'live' DJ sets were floating around the internet, like PVD @ Nature One in 2002, Tiesto Live @ Hyperstate '99, Above & Beyond Live @ Ministry of Sound, or Armin & Ferry b2b @ Godskitchen Ireland in 2003?? When the quality was just outright so shitty and gritty, BUT, you could hear the crowd noise and basically feel every last ounce of energy that was being propelled and created during the party?? These are just a few of the scarce live sets (compared to today) that I have in my library. I remember being on the lookout for new live sets like these all the time. WHo MISSES THESE??? Well I miss them, and as some of you may know already, I sometimes record my sets just like this - 'LIVE'.
Here is my closing set, after Paul Oakenfold last Friday 11/4/2011@ Pacha in NY - LIVE in its purest form. Dirty, gritty, low quality, raw audio directly from the performance. The crowd noise, the ENERGY, the atmosphere, has all been archived and harnessed in this 2 hour recorded set of pure uplifting, melodic, dark, emo Trance. Finally got the chance at a good hit to play some uplifting, epic, pure tunes! 19 tracks, a little under 2 hours of some of the greatest trance, new and old. Opened up with a favorite of mine from 2006 by Galen Behr. I had to shut it down quick at the end so didn't really have a chance to play a suitable closing part of the set haha. Really pleased the crowd was so into the music, the high energy, the melodies, rolling basslines, and euphoric vibe that I had created. A set like this is rarely ever heard in New York nowadays, and I am really glad to have shared this type of sound and vibe with everyone!! You guys were amazing!! Feel the music and Enjoy The Journey…
