  1. My brother is doing a full Ironman Triathlon tomorrow, so I figured I'd match his effort (/s) with a 5 1/2 hour mix. When I was conceptualizing this mix, I was heavily inspired by Simon Posford (of Shpongle) after he came to my city a few years ago with an army of psychedelic weapons and blitzkrieged the dance floor for 4 hours. His ability to weave a variety of styles in and out of each other was simply astonishing - like he was a swiss-army knife of psytrance. Channeling Posford, I have selected a kalaeidoscopic spectrum of flavors spanning several genres, styles, and tempos. I wanted to challenge the listener to interpret a variety of shifts in ideas and emotion - as subjects of mad techno experiments, psytrance, and colorful breaks. If you have followed my catalog over the years, you might notice that I double dipped on some of my favorite tunes in the breaks section Flegma - Sundarbans [TesseracTstudio] FLIX - Atonalities in Life [Spiral Trax] Dj Tomsten - Extra deep repaer [Tombstone] Lampé - Crystal Cave [Digital Diamonds] Stoertebeker - Robinson Jr. [Digital Diamonds] A:B:S - Litmus (3ska Remix) [Kiosek] Daäna - Little Animals (Trilingo Remix) [Digital Diamonds] Enertia-sound - Broken Robot [Mistique] Durs - Caravan [Uxmal] Human Element - Evolving [Iboga] Acröfen - Nausea (Trilingo Remix) [Digital Diamonds] Interactive Noise - Rewire (Durs Remix) [Spin Twist] Karlos Rush - Lisergik Lab [Speedsound] Jon Bovi - Wad Morld [Madabeats] Gunslinger - Mystic [Open Flame] Meat Katie & Dylan Rhymes - Roll Player (Hedflux Remix) [Lowering The Tone] Sphera - Micro Poetry [Dacru] Human Element - No Rush [Iono] DJ Noise - North Star (Sunday Evening Edit) [Voice Noise] Mervit - 360 Degrees [Power House] Etherica - Deep Feelings [Sting] Futura Music - Bealtaine [Furthur Progressions] Bionik Vokolder - Shiva Tribe [Speedsound] John 00 Fleming - We Close Doors (One Million Toys Remix) [JOOF] 4000 KROMOS - Chemical Punks [Speedsound] ManMadeMan - Do You Believe in UFOs?

The first part quite conveniently wraps the techno/psytrance bit up at exactly the 3 hour mark, and then the last 2.5 hours (part 2) are breaks. https://soundcloud.com/ziptnf/sets/relative-eternity Image source: boxtail Download the whole thing here: Ziptnf - Relative Eternity (5:33:14) 731MB ~320kbps
  2. Babies really take away all the extra time that you used to have. I'm admittedly behind in my psy/trance/EDM circles and I haven't done any proper digging in a while. I spent a few weeks trying to squeeze an hour here and there to dig. It's fatiguing to listen to this stuff so I got tired of searching quickly. But I wound up with 1 hour of no-nonsense, balls to the wall, robots fighting each other with chainsaws, max power psytrance. I never thought I'd still be making mixes like this at 30, but I guess I might as well make more mixes as I continue training for events and races. Finding the time is the hard part.

  3. Astrix just posted on his FB. RIP and condolences.
  4. Thank you Penzoline! This is my favorite type of psytrance - the trancey type, powerful psychedelia, and high energy the whole time. I appreciate the listen. I will try to work on your mix this weekend
  5. Made a new mix for the annual Kentucky Derby Festival Mini-Marathon (and full Marathon but only someone like my brother is crazy enough to do 26.2 miles :wtf: ). The race was delayed 1.5 hours due to storms in the area, and I wound up taking the race out too fast in the first 7 miles and struggled between walking/running for the last 6. Seems to be a trend in my races these days. I need to learn how to control my pace so I don't burn out like that. Perhaps my depleted energy stores was also a side-effect of the delayed start time. Anyway, the mix was better than my race. Big time trance melodies and high-energy psychedelic attack sequences, all flowing together for a powerful 100 minutes of quality electronic dance music. Pretty happy with this one.

  6. In the deep and enchanted forests, the sounds and rhythms of the ancients echo endlessly through time... I made this mix for my second half marathon this year, the Urban Bourbon Half. I've been wanting to do this race for the last 2 years and finally I've done it. PR'd by 5 minutes with a time of 1:57:59. All those hills through the parks of Louisville, KY were brutal and I started to fall apart with 3 miles to go, but I finished in under 2hrs which was my goal. I feel that I could have gone even faster but I will continue to try and improve next year This mix is loaded with delicious progressive gems, chock full of melodies and atmospheres. I'm very happy with how this turned out. Enjoy the nice groovy and chunky pace, from 128-131 BPM.

  7. Nicely done! Going to have to buy a few of these tracks for myself
  8. No worries, I figured as much Yeah that sample didn't fit quite so nicely, glad you pointed that out! Thanks again for listening, check my soundcloud for my other mixes that may tickle your fancy
  9. Thank you for the review, Paul Eye! Glad to see some actual feedback on this forum, which I was afraid was dead for a while. RE: the Tactical Groove Orbit track, I am sure you are aware that the producer of the track is the one who included the Ghost in the Shell sample... I definitely agree that it sounds a bit strange. I struggled to mix it in after the Too Dusty track because of the semi-abrupt ending, so the transition into it already started off rough. Coupling that with the vocals that didn't really seem to match, this track was probably not a star. In all reality, I was trying to make the mix long enough to last for the duration of my race, so perhaps I included a few tracks that I wouldn't have if I aimed to make it around my average set length. Variation in psybreaks is a little hard to come by... so many producers have a single riff or pattern that they bash out and repeat for the entire track, so the variation comes in the track selection. I felt like I accomplished that already, with melodic tracks like Roboteknic - Someplace Else, mind-warpers like Neurodriver - Sidewinder (Sense Datum Remix), and bruisers like MartOpetEr - Irony (Too Dusty Remix). I definitely understand if you felt like more was needed, but I did my best with the tracks I had access to (without repeating any, of course... I already have 3 other psybreaks mixes). Again, thanks for taking the time to listen and I hope you stop by and listen to more of my sets in the future!
  10. Yay! Glad to have you. Please post your thoughts if you listen
  11. I had a goal almost 3 years ago that I wanted to run a half marathon. There were challenges along the way due to injury, where I had to miss the race I planned to run. Today I completed my first one, and I made this mix for me to listen to while I did it. This mix supplied a steady flow of electric energy that kept me holding a surprisingly fast pace (for myself) all the way through. These are some serious psybreaks, and they will blast out robot battle noises for just under 2 hours. Unfortunately, I ran out of mix before I ran out of race, but that's just something to work on Image credit to the amazing Markus Vogt: markusvogt.deviantart.com Hedflux - Non-Stop (Bad Tango Remix) [Luminus] Frequency Less - Time Paradox (Kwah Remix) [Rune] Roboteknic - Someplace Else [sub Element] Matskie - Mind Science [96kHz] Alter Form - Visionary (Frequency Less Remix) [Rune] Retroid & Alter Form - No Way Out [Ego Shot] Toefinger & Soulah - Reality Tunnel (Too Dusty Remix) [YellowFinger] Optobot - Atomic Energy (48K Remix) [sub Element] Blazer - Obsidian [black Hole] Jiro - Uncertain Future [Ego Shot] Neurodriver - Sidewinder (Sense Datum Remix) [broken Robot] Acidova - Dealer 2 (Optobot Remix) [sub Element] MartOpetEr - Irony (Too Dusty Remix) [broken Robot] Tactical Groove Orbit - Dragon's Hunt (Quadrat Beat Remix) Audiohazard - Searching (Blazer Remix) [Perfecto] X-Dream - The 1st (Far Too Loud Re-fix) [soundcloud] Parallax Breakz - Abyss (ALT-A Remix) [VIM] Mariner - Orca (Retroid Remix) [sweet Science] Jiro - Come Back [Kindcrime] Chris Voro - Chimera [straight Up!] Audio:Hertz - My Enemy (Deformaty Remix) [Kick It] Enjoy!

  12. Brightens my day when someone enjoys my mix. I want to make sure that when I put out a mix, it's the highest quality possible. I'll fine-tooth my mixes a little more next time. I will stand by my track selection and programming 100% of the time though Iono and Yellow Sunshine had the best year from a release standpoint. What my next mix will be, nobody knows. I will make sure it's awesome <3 Send any requests via PM.
  13. Thanks guys! I look forward to the feedback. Two not so great transitions early on but the rest is smooth sailing. I'll mark that off as rust I'll try to see if I can find some more ideas rattling around in my head.
  14. Wow, what a year! I stopped DJing last year at this time to focus on my life and get some things done. Since then, I got engaged, bought a house, got married, and switched jobs. Much like a planetary alignment phenomenon, all my planets have aligned and I'm happier than ever with my new life. I doubt I will have the same volume of output from a music standpoint, but I am back, and I'll put out some more mixes as the mood strikes me.
