After the last couple of shows we may have to rename things Global Tech Grooves! A nod back to history repeating itself Trance being born off the back of Techno, Trance being Techno’s psychedelic melodic cousin. There’s plenty of those melodic moments, and Airwave takes to the turntables to create a gorgeous Trancy guest mix.
Global Trance Grooves ready for stream & download from iTunes, Google music, main website and Soundcloud.
This month I’m fully in my comfort zone of deep, lush musical Progressive Trance, as you’ll hear some awesome music around at the moment. Fasten your seat belts for a full on Turbo mix that includes a new single from Electric universe. One of the best DJ’s I’ve every had the pleasure to play alongside, Russia’s Alexey Sonar takes control of the guest mix.
As I step up to the DJ booth I feel that exact same feeling I did over 30 years ago when I played my first gig, a sense of excitement that I’m going to share with many people the music that I have spent days hunting for in music shops along with the countless hours of late nights preparing, mixing, organising my playlist and making notes. This is the moment my whole week has been building to, it’s going to happen now and that kid inside me is bursting to be unleashed because the rewards of seeing hundreds of smiling faces, tears and euphoria (that I’m in control off) is an experience I can’t put in words.
Since the first EP (parts 1 & 2) released way back in 2003 featuring ‘The main voyage’ and ‘Tour de Trance’ followed shortly after by parts 3 & 4, it was always John’s intention for this to be a 5 series EP, but never got around to finishing. It’s a scratch he needed to itch and 14 years later, he’s made it happen.
There’s no one who lives, breaths & personifies the electronic music underground like John 00 Fleming. In 2014 he mixed and released the second of his epic 4hr-long JOOF Editions music compilations. Described by MIXMAG as “a musical journey with no genre rules, but many twists and turns”, the magazine hailed it as “the sound of the underground”. Over the following twelve months, the release established itself as the ne plus ultra in breaking the fourth wall and liberating the dusk-till-dawn set from the confines of the club.
