Once again this is 90% vinyl with a the odd cd and a sampler to help with tricks.
A few notes about the tracks:
Big thanks to Alex Buck for reminding me about Andy Ling a few years back, wow has that tune not aged at all, and likewise Markus for Arrakis which I almost don't dare play anywhere because its so your track on the London circuit. After that this goes into a few of my 'weapon' tunes, Vimana is an almighty masterpiece from Tiesto and Ferry before they got too big to keep working together. Fire and Ice...wow...Neverending Melody for me is perhaps one of the all time greats. Its sad. But yet massively, massively euphoric....a really superbly judged piece that just keeps creeping up on you with its huge classical undertones to it.
I've also included 2 tunes by Digger which are on the same 12 and probably one of the most wanted bits of trance from any Dj who knows their stuff. Took me years to get this and it was a birthday gift which has to be about the best present ever! How can this be one record - Church of Ra is a big Corsten-eque hands in the air track whilst 'Nanuki' uses a subtle trible chant with some immaculately contained chords to hook you in - just outstanding. As the mix moves into the 2nd half A lesser known Matt Darey here with a hypnotic harmonica sample from an old 60s TV show thats taken me a long time to acquire (and thanks to a fellow TA as well). A few harder tunes nearer the end - I wasn't sure about putting 'In my electric house' on as its basically a rave anthem more than trance but its a classic uplifting tune and hopefully brings back a few memories. Finally an old psy trance rarity from Blue Planet Corperation to end. 18 years old and still sounding supurb.
Thanks for checking this out and feel free to post feedback, or abuse

Part 5 of this series moves into the naughties loosely covering tracks from 2000 – 2002, with all the usual samples and a bit of trickery. Once again a mostly vinyl based set.
To kick things off, there is an intro mash up featuring Annie Lennox (And Jim Morrison, just for kicks) who has an incredibly powerful and haunting voice. When teamed up with remix maestro’s Gabriel & Dresden, they produced a timeless progressive-vocal trancer: “A Thousand Beautiful Things” which I’ve mixed back into a number of tunes in this set. This is followed by an early production from Kuffdam & Plant - “When I’m missing you” is not as quick as their more recent productions and I just love the drifty nature of this tune. You’ll hear more from these guys in part 6. James Holden and the ITWT label then follow with what are essentially strong filler tunes before we head more into anthems thanks to Tiesto.
Monkey Forrest deserves a special mention as one of the best tunes out, doesn’t sound a day old after 8 odd years since the first release and these two ITWT release here I think were their best, for me at least. Top tune on here for me is the just epic Fire & Ice “Lost Emotions 2001.” This was always a weapon for me in my record bag as I never heard anyone play this until the Bryan Kearney remix came out far more recently. Honourable mention as well to Mat Silver for his super crisp “Blue skies” which was the debut release on Above the Sky Records. “Memories” also features which is on the flipside. A spot of trance trivia for you: The vocals in both are from Mat Silver’s wife. You’ll be hearing plenty more from Above The Sky in the parts that follow.
As the mix heads toward its climax I slipped in another lesser played Matt Darey remix: “Rise” which is definitely one to play your friend if they’ve just split up with their girlfriend/boyfriend...ditto “troubled soul” which became a local anthem at London trance night “Knowhere” I used play at regularly – had to put that in for you guys! We then tail off into Seven Cities to leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling I hope!
Thanks for listening, and check out previous 4 parts if you haven’t already. Part 6 in a couple of months.
