During some parts of the mix, I had half expected John 00 Fleming to come on the mic going "Roight, another massive tune from Timewave, now it's time for the Turbo mix!"
Nice work though.
Yeah, the J00F influence is writ large, even though I don't think this actually sounds much like a J00F set. It doesn't have the same darkness to it. It's difficult not to be influenced by J00F if you're playing this kind of sound, as he has fingers in almost all good progressive trance at the moment.
paulversuspaul: I did think about ending on something really epic, but you can't really go much higher than tracks like Multiverse and Hot Trigger without it starting to sound cheesy, so I went the other way and mellowed it out.
The mixing style on this set is heavily inspired by Sasha, particularly that legendary Essential Mix from 1995. He mixed a lot of tracks right from the intro, for minutes on end, and when you can pull that off it's a really "musical" way of blending tracks. Since I was going to be playing tracks everyone knew, I wanted to mix them in an interesting way.
