RAM - EOYM 2018 Top 50

I told you the other day that this is the time of year in which we are hearing and seeing a lot of 'end of year' mixes, and the second one I came across has been made by Trance legend DJ Ram. His EOYM is a thing of beauty: a 4 hour long mix, with 61 amazing Trance anthems. If Santa Claus could give us the ultimate gift, it's probably this one. Who does not want to hear a 4 hour long Trance mix during these dark and gloomy days?

You might be thinking that it's quite hard to listen to a 4 hour long mix, and you are wrong. Today was the 'cleaning the house'-day. Which meant that I needed music to keep me occupied. And Ram's mix is just the perfect one to keep me going. I needed that a lot, and it made the time fly by. It did went by extremely quickly, and that's all down to the power of the music. Trance music, you can't go wrong with it, eh?

It's the end of the year mix, so you will find a whole lot of amazing tracks which have been released/played during this wonderful year. And once you have seen the tracklist, it will literally put your mind at ease: the end of the year has emerged, and there's only one way to celebrate this year. In style!

The good thing about this mix is not only its length, but also the fact that RAM has used a lot of records by known and upcoming names. Or maybe I have misinterpreted that : still don't know half of the producers. But hey, it's all about the music, and that's exactly what you get!

It's been a good year, not just for Trance music, but for all styles. But Trance has seen a booming year, with excellent releases. And without a doubt, RAM's mix contains shitloads of them. He went all the way, and made this fantastic year mix. The four hours (as I said before) do fly by ridiculously fast. But that's not just because it's his mix, but it's because Trance music is so powerful, and can travel through space and time. Trance is the black hole of the music scene. It can uplift you, and take you somewhere else, without you even moving!

Quality over quantity. Well, you get both. Some records were a bit less interesting. Can't name them, because I was not looking at the tracklist when the mix was playing, I was working (remember?). They were alright, but not exciting. But that's only a handful of records. I would say 91% of the records did kick ass.

I can't pick a favorite. I simply can't. You can't pick at all! It's 4 hours long! So it's difficult.

A generous mix. You won't find mixes this interesting today. Maybe tomorrow there will be one, but today RAM's mix is the one taking us to the next dimension.
