Another year is coming to an end and that means that the yearmix tradition continues. A 3 hour non-stop megamix starting at 126 BPM and closing it off at 150 BPM. This mix features a total of 149 tracks ranging from Deephouse/Progressive, Mainstream Trance/EDM, Euphoric/Uplifting Trance, Psytrance and closing it off with Hardstyle.
A big thanks to all the great producers out there and I hope next year will be another great year for Trance Music!
Enjoy this mix!
Once again a great year has passed for the Trance scene and it seems that the TranceFamily is still growing, especially when you look at the number of great tunes that are being produced and all the party people at the clubs and festivals. As you might already know it has become sort of a tradition to close off every year with a Yearmix in megamix style. This is my tenth Yearmix and I hope you will enjoy it.
I chose to select and mix the tracks of this year based on my festival experiences which in musical genres means that Deephouse, Techno, Progressive, Main/Bigroom Trance, Uplifting & Euphoric Trance (my favourite), Psy-Trance, Hardstyle & Hardcore are all represented in this mix. A total of 140 tracks which range from 126 BPM up to 178 BPM.
Special thanks to DJ Dennis Williams & Floris for helping out on this mix and a big shoutout to all the great producers, DJ`s, artists and the TranceFamily for keeping the scene alive!
Gareth Emery & Standerwick Featuring Haliene & SJMA Choir – Saving Light (DJ CrisBros Live Choir Edit)
While working on the Yearmix of 2017 (which will be ready next week) I encountered an interesting version of Saving Light bij Gareth Emery & Standerwick Featuring Haliene which was performed live by Haliene together with SJMA Choir. A good chance this track will be the “Tune Of The Year” on A State Of Trance this year (we will find out soon enough). In the meantime, here is my edit where I combined the original with the live version.
I hope you like it:
First of all I hope you didn’t miss out on the ASOT 800 celebrations in the Jaarbeurs Utrecht (Netherlands) on the 18th of February, it was an epic night! Highlights were definitely Vini Vici & Aly & Fila and I can’t wait until Aly & Fila release their track “Beyond The Lights” on the 31st of March.
In the meantime I finished another mix with some of the latest Uplifting and Euphoric Trance. A lot of great new tracks on labels such as Future Sound Of Egypt, Grotesque and Abora Recordings.
Enjoy the mix!

Let`s go back to the year 1999 and think of what Trance tracks were being released and which titles you come up with….. York – The Reachers of Civilization, BT – Mercury and Solace, Kamaya Painters – Far From Over and obviously Gouryella – Walhalla. Then think of the year 2000, do the same….. Salt Tank – Eugina, Coast 2 Coast Featuring Discovery – Home, Mekka – Diamondback and Cass & Slide Featuring Naimee Coleman – Perception. We continue to 2002, Way Out West – Mindcircus, Paul Oakenfold Featuring Carla Werner – Southern Sun, Andain – Summer Calling and Solarstone – Solarcoaster. Two words: Timeless classics!
I guess some of you already know what I am talking about. The Trance mix compilation series called “In Search Of Sunrise” (ISOS) which was compiled and mixed by DJ Tiësto until Richard Durand took over in 2010. In my opinion it is the best Trance mix compilation series out there and this mix is a tribute to ISOS featuring a selection of 40 tracks in a non-stop mix of over 4 hours. So invite your friends, fire up the BBQ, grab your glass of Sangria (or some other cocktail) and get ready for a trip down memory lane with A Tribute To In Search Of Sunrise!

December is YEARMIX time! This year I am bringing you a megamix with 154 Trance and Progressive tracks in a three-hour non-stop mix (yes, I added an hour compared to last year)! The mix will start at 128 BPM with down-tempo EDM and Progressive tracks (by some called “Trouse”) and builds up to 138 and finally 140 BPM for those great uplifting and epic sounds, melodies and vocals which give me goosebumps everytime on the dancefloor. This mix is inspired by the great experiences these tracks have given me while visiting various festivals and by listening to a lot of amazing radio shows made by all those great DJ`s and Producers out there. Last but not least a big shout-out to the Trance Family around the world!
I hope you will enjoy this mix!
Because I just love these great uplifting Trance tracks I`ve created another Epic Sessions mix. As usual I started the mix with a great intro edit called Endless produced by Illitheas. I`m also a big fan of Ahmed Romel so I`ve added the tracks Yarden and Victory in this mix. Furthermore multiple tracks by Bobina, O.B.M Notion and SoundLift and also some great reworks of the classics Adagio For Strings, Solarcoaster and One Wish. In addition to that I had to put the track Ramore by RAM and Stine Grove in this mix (I just love this track) and finishing off this mix is my favorite track of the moment called Scota by A & Z versus Flynn & Denton, what a massive tune is that!
I hope you will enjoy this mix!

It was time for a little bit more downtempo mix so I started with some tracks I`ve been collecting for some time. Starting off this mix is a great track from last year by Parker & Hanson called ‘Gravity‘ followed by the track ‘Beat Organ‘ produced by 16 Bit Lolitas. I also put some classics in this mix like the Ibiza classic ‘Red Sun Rising‘ by Lost Witness in a great remake by Michael Cassette and a massive progressive track called ‘Magic Flight‘ by EDLands. I`m also a great fan of Sebastian Krieg and put 2 tracks of him in this mix as well. Furthermore a great track by Alex Di Stefano called ‘I`ve Got The Power‘ (which really reminds me of that old school Techno sound) and two of my personal favorites of the moment, Andski & Charmy with the track ‘Scars‘ in the amazing Adrian Alexander Remix and Fabio XB & Liuck Featuring Christina Novelli with the track ‘Step Into The Light‘ in the Anske Remix.
I hope you will enjoy this mix!
