It is Thursday today, and we need something to keep us going. Something to get us in the zone. The dance zone, I mean. We can't just work for 8 hours and sit there in silence: we need banging tunes to keep us occupied. And DJ Thera has got our back. It's not the first time he's got our backs: just go to his Soundcloud channel and you'll find billions of mixes/songs/etc, all for our personal benefit. Who doesn't like a bit of Hardstyle, Rawstyle, and in this case, Trance/Hard Trance?
Today's mix is one called Tranceparency. It's a play on the actual word transparency. Why, you might be thinking to yourself? Well, it's because it's filled with Trance anthems. A bit different, to what we are used to hear from Thera. He's Hardstyle through and through, but sometimes he likes to do things differently, and gives us music we were desperately waiting for. In this case, an excellent Trance mix.
Leave it to Thera to come up with a wicked mix. It's not just your standard Trance mix. Why? Well, it's got Trance, Hard Trance, a bit of Acid, and even tracks with Hardstyle influences in them. And a bit of Techno too. So a nice mixture of everything. And that's good!
I love myself a good Trance mix. And this one has got one in it I've never heard before, but immediately fell in love with. You'll figure it out soon. But first, the tracklist:
Andrea Mazza - Alone In Your Eyes
Shortround - K-Hole
Solar Factor - Urban Shakedown (Bryan Kearney Remix)
Billy Gillies - Density
Daxson - Who We Are
Deborah De Luca - Adrenaline (Will Sparks Remix)
John O'Callaghan feat Sarah Howells - Find Yourself (Kearney Dark Dub)
AVAO - You Can't Control Us
Alex Di Stefano - Quadra
Fisherman - Enterprise
Shortround - White Hearts
HI-LO - PURA VIDA (Whebba Remix)
Offshore Wind & Aimoon - DRIFT
David Rust & Renegade System - All You Give
Armin van Buuren & Gareth Emery feat Owl City - Forever & Always
John O'Callaghan - Impulse Barrier
DJ Thera - Stop The Clocks
Alignment & Anxhela - Straight Into Your Face
Andy Newtz - Amber Rain (Elgfrothi Remix)
Minus 25 - Close Your Eyes (Thoqy Remix)
Bastet - Witching Hill
Alignment - Close Your Eyes
Supermode - Tell Me Why (Maddix Remix)
DJ Thera - Techno-logy
DJ Thera & T.C.C. - Trance Atlantic Express
It's literally mix & match. Some of these tracks you wouldn't even hear in conventional mixes, as they are just too damn random, too quirky. But Thera does what he does: he keeps the interest level high. And promotes his own stuff too, and why wouldn't he?
I do love his own productions. They are fucking ace. Especially the tracks selected for this mix. Especially 'Techno-logy'. What a big dancefloor anthem. Really enjoyed that track the most, but it's not my most favourite track of this mix. Sorry Thera, but I've got to give credit to Daxson's 'Who We Are'. Not heard it before, but it is genuinely my favourite Trance anthem as of now!
There are also two tracks in this mix which I cannot seem to find interesting. 'Forever & Always' is a bit too piss-wet for me (boring and not really cool), and also 'Tell Me Why'. Original was much better. Hey, you can't please everyone all at once. At least it's only a small percentage of records I just find meh.
A good mix that will keep you dancing until the upcoming weekend. I can't recollect if I've ever encountered the previous Tranceparency mix, but I'm on it right now, and will check it out. I need to, if it's as good as this one.
