The Guest Mix @ Digital Emotions with Fonarev

I was honored to make a guest mix for one of the most respected DJ and pioneer of the Russian electronic dance music scene, Vladimir Fonarev, and his Digital Emotions radio show.

This 30-minutes mix include my own productions only, and I would say the most Trancy (or should I say cheesy?) side of it.

He was coming to my master classes, and there he is already a solid producer with his own vision, signed on some of the best record labels. The supernova of the Trance scene.

Aurora is out now

A collaboration with Mekka · Borderline Music

Daniel Lesden has fast become an exciting name with a more psy-trance approach to his music, while still keeping elements of melodic, uplifting trance. His last appearance on the label saw him remixing Mac & Mondays awesome track Yoruba.

This time he teams up with JOOF Recordings regular Mekka to create Aurora, a monster of a progressive track which oozes the kind of style and quality seen in the late 90’s early 00’s from the (back then) progressive house genre. Oh how times have changed! We think you’ll love this just as much as we do — its doesn’t have a typical done to death riff, the build that everyone else is doing, or a boring stripped back drop. Its a builder, laden with quality and unique arrangement. This is Borderline Music, this is Aurora!

It’s one of those tracks that can capture your imagination and is brave attempt to cross the forbidden boundaries between the two trance camps and bridge their separate worlds.

Yoruba is out now

A remix on Mac & Monday · Borderline Music

Borderline Music have a year of specials for you in 2013 that continues with a fantastic psy tinged remix of Mac & Monday’s debut monster track, Yoruba! Daniel Lesden is making waves within the progressive psy scene with his melodic touches on top of the grunt and drive of psy kicks and basslines. Here he works his style to amazing effect on Yoruba!

Great take on an already great original!
