Here is a mix of uplifting, chunky prog that harks back to it's glory years. No EDM here!
The mix opens with a superb male vocal track from Giorgio Phoenix that sets the tone with it's moody vibes. It gets melodic and uplifting pretty soon, before a gorgeous Orkidea production (Epicentre) acts as a breather. The vocal sample here is to die for. I've put three of the fabulous Finn's tracks in this mix - he is an exceptional producer.
The core of the mix is the Grum show. This Glaswegian is one of the best and most consistent progressive producers around. I rarely hear a track from him I don't like.
The mix starts to take off with my favourite Orkidea production here - Finnish Kiss. The mix into "Always" is possibly the biggest moment in the mix. And what a tune Redanka's remix of "Mine & Yours" is. Proper old school chugging vocal prog with a delicious twist of strings at the end.
The mix comes to a close with two of the most melodic tracks in there. Chicane channels Pryda on "How Does Your House Work" which has a very catchy vocal sample. Oliver Smith's "Gemini" has a melody so beautiful it brings me to tears just thinking about it. The mix closes with an epic slab of break-beat trance from Solarstone's last album"----" (yes that is it's title).
