Trance Generater Vol 28 Mixed By RiotstarterDjUk (2019)

Many years ago I started reviewing, I think it must have been over 10 years now (at least), and during the first couple of years I reviewed many mixes by upcoming names in the industry. Many did send their mixes to me directly, that sadly has disappeared, and I have to hunt the mixes myself. One of those DJs who I have reviewed in the past was RiotstarterDjUk. On the old website I would have several mixes, including Gabber. But what got my attention the most were his Trance mixes. And he's back with a new one.

I'm not on Hearthis. There's a limit to my social media outreach, and even though I'm on Mixcloud, I'm not really on there. I'm always, and I do mean always on Soundcloud. So if a mix is posted somewhere else, I always miss them. Thankfully the DJ in question reminded me of the existance of his latest instalment, which includes only Euphoric Trance anthems. And that's a style I really appreciate, and is close to my heart. I simply cannot get enough of this, so to hear new music, that's always a bonus.

Don't know where he got these anthems from, because I've never heard them before, but who cares? The music speaks for itself, so let's focus on that element. Tracklist anyone?

01. Corin Bayley - First Light (Original Mix)

02. Metta & Glyde - Instant Gratification (Extended Mix)

03. Kiyoi & Eky with Adam Morris - Sense (Extended Mix)

04. Kinetica & Inversed - Escape (Original Mix)

05. John O'Callaghan & Deidre Mclauchlan - Stay With Me (Factor B Remix)

06. Basic Dawn - Pure Thrust (Ferry Tayle Extended Mix)

07. Clay C - Connect (Original Mix)

08. Norex & Adwell - Far Away From You (Original Mix)

09. Danny Eaton - Never Ending Dream (Extended Mix)

10. Astrofegs - Frameshift (Extended Anomaly Anthem Mix)

11. Tom Exo - Borderline To Reality (Extended Mix)

A short tracklist, but a long mix. It's an oldskool way of doing it proper: not cramming in 238 records in 20 minutes, but playing records as long as possible, so people can ride the euphoric waves to eternal bliss.

Is it indeed a Euphoric Trance mix? Yes, it is. It's so Euphoric, it makes my eyes water. And my ears bleed. So relaxing, so uplifting... this kind of music brings a full on raver into the heavens above. I do love a bit of the harder styles, but when I do hear Trance, I'm completely gone. I'm out, in a different world. Some take drugs to experience that, I just listen to Trance.

I've got some good mixes and livesets focussed on Trance, you should check out my website. Check out Tiesto's liveset from 2003, some Euphoric anthems in there as well.

Is RiotstartDjUk's set a good one? Short answer is yes. Long answer, well, it's also a yes. Don't know where he found these anthems (never spotted them before in other mixes or on compilations, but maybe I'm buying the wrong mixes?), but they do the trick extremely well.

The best record? 'Borderline To Reality'. I'm riding the early 00s Trance wave, and this captures that atmosphere a lot. Blend the old with the new. No nonsense, pure Trance.

Is this the best mix in the whole universe? Well, that's what this DJ is claiming. It's up there. It's one mighty fine mix. We need more of these mixes.

Get this right now: head over to Hearthis and download this. You know you want to.
