Bryan Kearney - Hard Trance Favourites Mix (2020)

If I'm completely honest with you all, I don't like to watch streams online. I get bored easily, and rather listen to it at my own convenience. As nice as it is, and seeing as it's the only way most people get their daily music fix, for me it's not what I want to see. I'm bored easily, and distracted easily too. So when livestreams are uploaded onto any Cloud, like Mixcloud or Soundcloud, that's when I get excited. It's weird, I know. But that's just me. Most of you lot prefer to watch a livestream, seeing as COVID-19 is an absolute pain in the rectum, and prevents us from going to raves.

Bryan Kearney did a set in his kitchen, and I'm guessing he's done 4 prior to this one. Who would have thought that we would be watching a DJ do his thing in his own kitchen? A few months ago that would only be an upcoming DJ's stage, but now we do see those livestreams appear everywhere: kitchen, bedroom, attic, garden, anywhere basically. He did his in his kitchen, and the fifth episode was focussed on his favourite Hard Trance records. A few years ago this was my favourite style, and when I saw that he did a set containing records I truly love, I had to jump the bandwagon, and listened to his set on Soundcloud. I wasn't going to be disappointed.

I've got to say, looking at the picture, he's got a nice kitchen. Yep, OK, the focus should be on the mix, not his kitchen. But it's nice. If anyone knows the manufacturer of the kitchen, let me know, I might be interested.

Back to the mix. What kind of awesomeness has he selected for this mix? Are his favourite Hard Trance records the same as mine, and yours? Let's find out, shall we?

  1. Avatar - Red Planet (Reverb Mix)

  2. BK - Revolution

  3. Flutlicht - Icarus

  4. Saltwater - The Legacy (Alphazone Remix)

  5. Matt Silver vs Tony Burt - Teardrops (S.H.O.K.K. Remix)

  6. Dumonde - God Music (Cosmic Gate Remix)

  7. Dave Joy - First Impression (S.H.O.K.K. Remix)

  8. JFK - Good God

  9. Sioux - Pho

  10. DJ Kim - Jetlag (Alphazone Remix)

  11. Marc Dawn - Expander (Flutlicht Remix)

  12. Basic Dawn - Pure Thrust (Nu NRG Remix)

  13. Ian Van Dahl - Try (Onova feat Alphazone Remix)

  14. The Freak - The Melody, The Sound (Flutlicht Remix)

  15. Dumonde - See The Light

  16. Flutlicht - The Fall (Original Mix)

Now this is a tracklist that excites me. Can't believe these are classics already, it seems like only yesterday they were released. But they are older than you think. Credit to mr Kearney, his selection is really as good as you can get it. Hard Trance all the way, baby!

This takes me back to the late teens, early twenties, when I used to adore this kind of music. I really fell in love with it, and it has stayed with me for years. Hard Trance is one of those styles that cannot do anything wrong. I just adore the living f**k out of it. It's Trance, but slightly faster! Don't we all love Trance and we like things to be slightly harder? (don't have disgusting thoughts!).

His selection is really great, and his kitchen mix is really good. I really love to hear those Dumonde records again. Whatever happened to Dumonde? Can't remember what happened to them? Did I just not follow them? I've lost track of Dumonde....

And it's also great to see a few Flutlicht records in here. Gosh, Bryan's mix is really something. I've got to give him credit for this awesome mix. And the best of the best was in here too! Obviously a Dumonde track: 'See The Light'. What a slammer!

Go and grab this mix right now! It's also available as a free download. So what are you waiting for?
