TransMigration

Music

As 2014 has progressed I have slowly but surely deserted Trance. The music I fell in love with in the early 2000s peaked, in my opinion, during 2006 – 2007. Listen to Armin’s end-of-year mixes from those two years to see what I mean. What resonated with me were the lush melodies, smooth basslines and the feeling of being transported to other worlds. Some what akin to the image above. Beautiful progressive trance melodies would evoke feelings that lyrics never could…

Then big room house took over. “EDM” became a part of everyone’s vocabulary. Electro was being played on the radio. It was music for the A.D.D. generation who demanded instant gratification. ┬áThe music today is all about moving from one “drop” to the next with some random melody/lyrics thrown in. I had failed to evolve and the music I once held so dear┬áhad left me behind.

It was time to venture out and stop silo-ing myself into a genre. There had to be more people who felt the same way and I needed to find them. Over the past nine months I have rediscovered my passion. I took time off from making mixes and spending more time discovering new genres and sounds. What I found was very exciting. The music was thriving, I had just failed to keep up.

I spent a long time coming up with this tracklist and getting this mix right. This mix is a journey of peaks and valleys, of emotions both euphoric and dark and ultimately progression. It is not tied down to a strict genre. Join me as we delve into this beautiful world of deep house, nu disco, tech house, house, techno and progressive.
