Jack Moss - Distant Places [Progressive Trance]

This mix looks very straightforward, but a lot of effort actually went into getting it right. I came up with the second half first, throwing tunes together and coming up with a really nice flow, and I tried to work back and craft a good intro. Reverse-engineering a mix like this is tough because you're building flow backwards, which is counter-intuitive. In the end it took a classic from deep in the box to bring it all together, and I'm very pleased with the outcome. Very little psy influence, some of you will be pleased to hear.

Yeah, if you've been keeping up with trance there shouldn't be many surprises here, but hopefully the mixing and flow will add something. Mr JonDC up there has been pestering me to be less obscure and just put some music out there, and with the lush summer weather we're having right now I couldn't disagree.

I really enjoyed this - it's very interesting how you've structured it. I'd go as far as to say it is quite up and down in terms of energy levels and 'moods', but I think that given you are using more familiar tunes than usual, it's for the best that you have made it a slightly different journey. It still flows, which means I don't mind having the energy levels ramped up and then brought back down again

I think the thing I like best about the mix is where you have used tunes I am really familiar with - such as Atlas Winds and Relentless, you have mixed them differently to how most DJs would, making use of the intro as a major part of the transition. I wouldn't have expected Relentless to work after Invasion, but this tactic made it happen. Also, when you come out of Multiverse - the most epic track of the set - you have another interesting trick to slam Melodica back in and change direction. Very good!

I know what you mean when you talk about liking to use more obscure track. Indeed, if I was unfamiliar with the tunes this would have blown my head off. However, I don't think there is anything wrong with just making top class mixes with your favourite tunes

Cleaned my whole apartment while listening to this. I did enjoy it, even though there was nothing all that groundbreaking about the tracklist. The mixing was fluid and the energy was managed very nicely. I don't think it was quite as "up and down" as Jon's review would have me believe.

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.

Fifty plus minutes into this, having to stop and go numerous times but the mixing is fabulous. lots of emphasis on harmonic mixing and song selection and way less on beat matching and trying to prove that they are beat matched by turning transitions into mashups. Love it. Also love how you can hear the intro and outros. I have always been found of intro and outros in trance music and love hearing them sometimes in mixes.

Final thoughts, my only complaint is that I did not like the finish. The last song was quality but couldnt hold up the insanity of timewave and humate. General preferences, but I have always liked ending a mix on the most powerful track and the one that you want people to remember the most. Great mix nonetheless. Really enjoyed it.
