2019 March Tranc-Itions (the Running up that Hill Set)

 

“Do you want to feel how it feels?

Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?

You, it's you and me.

And if I only could,

I'd make a deal with God,

And I'd get him to swap our places,

Be running up that road,

Be running up that hill…”

 

Classic Vocal Trance anthems because I needed it.

 

Life still non-linear and sometimes only trance will heal. Nothing particularly original but a few new cuts of old anthems and by far the best Rapture medley I have put together.

 

I had a few lighter ones already uploaded in late 2018 but could not get myself to press the publish button. This one better reflects the current mood.

2019 Jan Sugar Pills Reboot 2.0

 

Let's start with Happy New Year!

 

Curated vocal Beach and Disco house gems with a hint of a latin vibe.

 

Still in drastic need of pick me up music and if I were in the mood, the set would get me to the floor.

 

If you feel like another vibe, more progressive, check out our mixclound page, have posted a whole Nora En Pure series:

https://www.mixcloud.com/xtiancaz/

 

 

Playlist:


  1. 2012 When Am I Going to Make a Living (Mikeandtess Boot Edit). Sade

Highlights:

Loving the Dr. Packer remix of an absolute soulful Classic "The Way You Love Me".

Thrown in a couple of Nora en Pure to show her immense talent extends beyond progressive.

"You've Got the Luv" could become a soulful classic, both current production and yet all the hallmarks of the 80/90's are there.

Love Shane D's "Party with Me". True pick me up tune.

"Never be Alone" and "Never Give Up on Hope" are both great melodies, the latter possibly my favourite soulful tune of 2018.

2018 Sept China: The Harder Set

 

Progressive House and light Trance with new remixes and edits of classic tunes. More than a few Xtian’s edit and mashups, probably too many.

 

I should have uploaded this set ages ago as it was done simultaneously as the 2 previous one. Never got around to it and my shopping car tis bursting to the seam. Time to publish. Up in tempo and reflecting my mood at the time.

 

A lot of tunes you know thrown in, give it a go, there is a lot of sugar towards the end.

 

Life not simple currently, would expect it to be reflected in my choice of tunes. Cover art is a photo I took of street art I stumbled across whilst in Qinyang, Henan, China.

 

Playlist:

 

  1. 2013 Aegean Breeze (Original Mix) [Xtian Elisentrasse Edit]. Processing Vessel, L-Kid
  2. 2018 After Earth (Extended Mix). Ben Böhmer
  3. 2018 When We Face Reality (Khen Bronzed Re-Edit) [Xtian Feel Love Edit]. Sahar Z, Navar
  4. 2018 One Kiss (ZHU Remix) [Xtian Feel Love Edit]. Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa
  5. 2018 Touch Me (Milkwish Remix) [Xtian Feel Love Edit]. Tom & Jerry, Abigail Bailey, Milkwish
  6. 2017 Walking on Clouds (Croatia Squad Remix). Luca Debonaire 
  7. 2017 Don't Go (Original Mix). Glen Horsborough In It Together feat. Laura Louise
  8. 2018 The One You Left Behind (Original Mix). Yotto, Vök
  9. 2018 The Music (Original Mix) [Xtian My Warehouse Edit]. Wheats
  10. 1997 Greece 2000 (Olivier Weiter Radio Edit). Three Drives

  12. 2015 Temperamental 2015 Mix (hearthis.at bootleg). EBTG
  13. 2017 Love to Love You Baby (Original Mix). Simioli
  14. 2018 Café del Mar (Tale of Us Renaissance Remix) [Xtian Need to Mash]. Energy 52
  15. 2018 Greece 2000 (Extended Mix) [Xtian Edit]. Ipanov
  16. 2014 Greece 2014 (Original Mix) [Xtian Edit]. Maliblue
  17. 2018 Rapture (Who Knows Remix). Mat Hold, Who Knows
  18. 2017 Missing (Extended Mix). Mark Sixma, Emma Hewitt

 

Highlights:

 

A quick word on the 2 Everything but the Girl (EBTG) tunes. I look at EBTG as absolute master of the crossover between POP Music and House. Been Watt and Tracey Thorn collaborated to write, produce and perform tunes that are all classics, pushing the boundaries of both genres. They eventually had enough and both ventured into new artistic endeavours. Sad for us but probably perfect for them.

 

“Temperamental”, great deep original tune, which remix I found on heartat.this, check it out I could not find whom to credit and a new remix of “Missing” in my absolute top 5 tunes.

“The One You Left Behind” from Yotto. Otto Yliperttula, known professionally by his stage name, Yotto, is a Finnish DJ, songwriter, and record producer he has just realeased his first artist album “Hyperfall”. If you like deep progressive house, check him out. Absolute gem of an artist and producer.

As to the mini-mix of Three Drives’ Anthem “Greece” and “Café del Mar”, a bit indulgent but will always have a weakness for the original Balearic sound and I am always on the look at for new takes on those tracks.

 

A bientôt!

2018 Aug Vols de Nuit (CX178)

 

Progressive House curated from 30,000 ft travelling to China. Your chillout companion or the appropriate soundscape to immerse yourself into a good book. Few vocals, deep progressive grooves and mostly current beats.

 

Most of you know Antoine de St Exupery only through the quizzical “Petit Prince” (The Little Prince&rdquowinking. For us French, he was a VERY bad fighter and postal pilot but an amazing writer. Unsurprisingly, he died flying but left us with a short but amazing literary trail.

 

One of his most famous books is “Vols De Nuit”, which, beyond the description of flying solo across the Atlantic and the Andes to deliver the mail in the 20’s and 30’s, depicts the introspection of a very lonely man facing his fate, knowing that the finality of his life could not be avoided.

 

Somehow, whilst flying to China, St. Ex came back to me.

 

Playlist:

 

  1. 2018 A Love That's Hard To Find (Dub Mix). Chicane
  2. 2015 All I Want (Album Version). Chus & Ceballos ft. Astrid Suryanto 
  3. 2018 Missing (Sebastien Extended Remix). Mark Sixma, Emma Hewitt

  8. 2018 White Clouds (Rene Bourgeois Remix). Marc Grabber, Bastian (SLO)
  9. 2014 All I Feel Is You (C. Castel’s Moon Rise Mix). Natalia Safran
  10. 2018 Tempelhof (Dmitry Molosh Remix). Nicolas Rada
  11. 2018 Rise (Original Mix). Sascha Cawa          
  12. 2016 Greece 2016 (Original Mix). Halaros
  13. 2018 Never Enough (Allovers Retouch). Boris Dlugosch, Roisin Murphy, Allovers
  14. 2017 Dance Floor (Original Version). Max (BG), Danny (BG), Diva Vocal      
  15. 2017 Tell Me Why (Chillax Remix). Nikolas Miyakis

 

Highlights:

 

More from Chicane’s latest artist album “The Place you can’t remember, The Place you can’t forget”. Can’t urge you more to buy this album.

 

Do not gloss over the little gems that are “ All I Want” with Astrid Suryanto, “Rise”, “All I  Feel is You” and “Never Enough”. Tunes, which may not be anthem but given a bit of exposure will grow on you.

 

Will be back soon/A bientôt

August 2018 “For Those Who Stayed”

 

Chilled Progressive House with a sprinkle of Balearic Trance. I love this one, I hope you will as well.

 

Some context: from late June to most of July, my family went to Europe on a holiday and I stayed in wintery Melbourne. My presence here was necessary and the start of a lot of positive things, yet, I was nonetheless bittersweet and lonely. World Cup notwithstanding, (Allez les Bleus), I missed them terribly.

 

Hence the darker and at times chilled and softer tone, interspaced with sun rays and Mediterranean rhythms and feel.

 

A very, very current set (even the 2017 drops are from very late 2017. There is schadenfreude, emotions, sadness, hope. If all of it transpires, I have succeeded. In any case, a set I will listen to with pleasure once it settles.

 

Check out my edits and last track mash-up.

  1. 2018 Something Was Real (Original Mix). Eli & Fur

  17. 2018 Greece 2000 (Sebastien Extended Remix) [Xtian Every Day Mash]. Three Drives On A Vinyl, Sebastien, Dajae

 

Highlights:

 

Let’s start with Chicane. In the non-soulful, deep house realm, Chicane is by far my favourite artist! Because he is STILL an artist, someone who releases, lo and behold, “artist albums”, a concept most of the others have forgotten as it is not a smart commercial move.

 

Not sure what’s going on in his personal life but there must be sadness and milestones because he just released a very personal album, probably his best for a decade “The Place You Can’t Forget, The Place You Can’t Remember”.

https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/the-place-you-cant-remember-the-place-you-cant-forget/1380873958

 

Do yourselves a favour and buy the album! I won’t tell you why I chose the particular tunes in this podcast as I would like you to sample the album and will probably drop most of the album tunes in the course of the remaining year.

 

Nirvana“might be my favourite track of the year in the progressive realm

Last word on Chicane, a 2018 remix of “Saltwater” was released in June by none other than Sebastien, very nice take on a pure anthem.

 

Eli & Fur’s “Something Was Real”. Fitting track to start the set. Summarizes my mood at the time and it is an absolute beautiful track. Haunting vocal and the production work is faultless. Today Eli & Fur are my favourite producers and song writers. And yes, we are talking about two young British women showing that EDM has also had its #metoo moment!

 

Since their debut release in 2013, Eli & Fur have been perfecting a sound built around infectious melodies with deep driving bass lines topped with their distinguished brooding vocals. Their sound has developed into something unique and has earned them respect from some of the biggest names in the industry.

Enaya’s “Gimme your Love”: not sure who Enaya is but she sounds like a fresh Rihanna.

 

Do miss my “Story” from Sharapov. Great progressive sounds, very much what comes out of Russia currently and I am absolutely in love with the vocalist one! Can’t find much on Sharapov but have bought a few tracks from him, Progressive, nice low impact Trance.

It's Too Late” from Jay Santi. WOW! This track has everything! Production, great vocalist and such a rolling groove and piano underline! Do not know much either on Jay Santi. He is Dutch and is always good for a real floor banger, no matter if it's funky or techy. Very cool producers and looking at my hard drive, just realized I have more than 20 tracks of his!

 

Pray for More’sMusical Freedom”. Do yourself a favour and check the track. Not only will you recognize what immense house classics it is the remix of (won’t spoil it for you), but you will be ON YOUR FEET and humming the tune in no time. Pray for Morerealm ranges from from funky, pumpin’ and jackin’ House to techy Disco vibes, ending up with percussive Tribal Grooves… The whole House package…

 

Pray for More is the brainchild of Austrian born and raised DJ, Producer, Label Owner and Club Promoter, Roland Bartha. He’s not a newcomer to this scene, having more than 25 years of experience behind the decks, including a 5 year Residency at one of Ibiza’s biggest and most prestigious clubs, Es Paradis Terrenal. A set by Pray for More is mostly a set of completely unreleased stuff that will destroy any floor, ranging from funky, pumpin’ and jackin’ House to techy Disco vibes, ending up with percussive Tribal Grooves…

With Omar Gharbi’s “Lost in Aegean” I both went to the dark side AND INTRODUCED a bit of Greek bouzouki to “House is a Journey”, well done Xtian winking. Pure House world music! London based DJ and Producer, Omar he is one of most requested DJ’s in London and on the international circuit. Demonstrating his own style in some of London’s most prestigious venues: Park Chinois, Buddha Bar London, Nozomi, Mayfair Club, Boujis, Penthouse, Tramp, Sugar Hut, Cafe Royal.

More Progressive house World music with Est8’s “Emhlabeni”. Est8 seems to appear as a remixer of most Spiritchaser’s production. Always perfectly on point unsure as to whether they are one and the same or a true entity. Love the middle-eastern feel, blended in the Mediterranean feel of the set. A duo from Chichester, UK, comprising of … Richard Earnshaw and Mark "Bamo" Bamford from the South Coast of England. With the two coming from different ends of the spectrum, Bamo from the DJ side and Richard from the production side, the ultimate result was a solid understanding of music right through the process of making to playing the tracks.

 

Richard Earnshaw is most probably my favourite living house legend producer.. Here we go!

2018 July Arrival: From the Beach to the Dance Floor Pt3

Connection: Athens

 

Driftin' on a memory

Ain't no place I'd rather be

Than with you

Loving you well-well-well

Day will make a way for night

All we'll need is candle lights

And a song yeah

Soft and long

 

Eclectic Summer Beach and Chilled Progressive House going into soft Trance for those just who have headed North.

 

Third Part: some self-serving drops related to personal and football issues. The final of the 2018 World Cup is tonight and a “little prayer” might be warranted. As for “In Praise of the Sun” well I am looking at photos from sunny Greece on a daily basis from glacial Melbourne and it hurts!

 

Allez les Bleus!

Highlights:

 

For the Love of You” from D’Moov, one of my favourite all time melody and the lyrics (see intro) just sums it up “All we need is candle lights and a song, soft and long”. 

D’Moov is Doruk Ozlen, Miami based Dj/Producer. Originally from Istanbul, Turkey

In Praise of the Sun” perfect chilled out number I had to download from the dark web, as unavailable on any legal download site.Mr. Joshua is a Brian Higgins and Nick Coler project.

They collaborated with Vanessa Quiñones and Nick Bracegirdle aka Chicane on "In Praise Of The Sun/Toujours Le Soleil" and produced a couple tracks for Saint Etienne on Finisterre.

Make Your Move” from Croatia Squad. Had to have a Croatian track in there. It's the art of sensitive noise, subtle sounds and beats in order to make it a musical experience for every listener. 'Croatia Squad' is some of Switzerland's most wanted and respected deep house and nu disco producer.

Feel Alright”, Tony S, a prolific and established producer within the Deep House

scene, steps forward to make his debut with SuperDuperSoul with this laid back groove entitled 'Feel Alright'. On remix duties, the ever-talented Ross Couch.

Most probably there will not be a part 4 of ’From the Beach to the Dancefloor” as I feel like doing something a little bit less sugary.

 

Final tonight

 

A bientôt

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
