  1. Every now and then I get the hankering for some high energy shit. With my hands full at work and with life, I had to throw this together quickly. I feel bad for the 99.9% of Artists who spend a lot of time producing music only for me to listen to .1 seconds of the song before deciding whether or not it's worth buying. Sadly, that's what it's like searching for music in this genre. It's mostly boring and uninspired. The tracks that made it on this mix grabbed my attention immediately. Hopefully this will at least showcase some of the powerful, unique artists who go unnoticed in a dying genre. X-Side & Avan7 - Eleven Dimensions [180 Degrees] Mad Tribe - 10 Billion Doses [DM7] Spatial Plants & Critical Selection - Plumbum [Blacklite] Spectre & Warp Drive - The Simulation [PsynOpticz] Artifex - Shrooms [Art-X] The Concept Nemesis - From Inside Out [Lysergic] Stereopanic - Imaginary Friends [Mechanik] X-Side - Emergency Broadcast [Mechanik] Panayota - Oxygen (X-avenger Remix) [Free Minds] Roby & Tetrikal - Heavy Bombs [MMD] Acyd System - Distorted Time [Terror Hippie] Stereopanic - Dream Layer [MMD] Hydroxide & Trhip - A Dead Dreamer [Mechanik] Alienn - Yeah Science [Kaos Krew] Soundcloud left-click to download: Ziptnf - Reality Fission (1:19:32) 175MB ~320 kbps
  2. I wanted to do something lower tempo but as I searched, the darker this mix became. This shit gets really twisted after a little while, which turns out to be pretty apt for this year as a whole. I actually expected the thing in the cover art to have gotten us by now but there are still 2 months left. tracklist: ben rama - implicate (dr. strangefunk remix) [techngnosis] ewake - ancient roots [techngnosis] luis m - cold stars in space [digital diamonds] x-dream - do you believe (k.u.r.o. remix) [gravity plus] oood - hoku [iboga] mrblenk - i'm groot [speedsound] sourone - domesticated delusions (tystix remix) [our minds] deepnotic - plash [zenon] jibba jabba - motherfucker [jaira] sinhafazatron - crysys [dimensional] polyplex - stop [hi-trip] mngrm - unbreakable [digital diamonds] pick - maximum orchestra [glitchy tonic] artwork by patvit left click to download Ziptnf - Evil Gods (1:12:29) 159MB ~320kbps

This didn't take too long to put together and I even used a few older tunes that I had purchased for previous mixes but never played. Loved putting this together, some nostalgic vibes with melodic trance, deep trance, and some heavy psychedelic energy. This is the sweet spot for me, between progressive and full-on, where both psychedelic music and trance can thrive. Enjoy! Art credit to narandel.

  4. Thanks Gary! It's a fairly open landscape of a genre, it's a shame more people don't explore it.
  5. I've thought about doing a sequel to my relatively popular Encrypted Universe but hadn't gotten around to digging for it. There are basically 3 people who rule this sound: Xenofish, Mellow Sonic, and Cybernetika, and none of them are signed to any labels or have any new releases in the past 3-4 years anyway. So unless they all make a comeback I wouldn't anticipate many more of these mixes. The neuro stuff seemed to fit nicely in a 20ish minute block towards the end. I tried to get the most listenable neurofunk available considering a vast majority of it is actually hurts to listen to. Had a lot of fun recording this. Enjoy!

  6. 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
  7. 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.

  8. Astrix just posted on his FB. RIP and condolences.
  9. 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
  10. 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.

  11. 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. Dual Phase - Hunger [speedsound] Motion Drive - Hypnotic [iono] Fluctuarion 2.0 - Eclipse Chasers [Parabola] Aviron & Eniak - Download the Future [Cosmicleaf] Protoactive & Dream Surface - Progressed [Freakuency] Lemonchill - Premonition (Deimos Remix) [uxmal] Cj RcM - Protoalta [Gert Sound] Night Hex - Sleep Paralysis [suntrip] E-Nok - Let It Go [solar] Ovnimoon & Man Machine - One Heart [Fresh Frequencies] Suduaya & By The Rain - Space Shifting [bMSS] Ascent - Happiness [Ovnimoon] Bakke - Birds (Alter Nature Remix) [spin Twist] Suntree - Lonesome Dream [iono] Liquid Sound - Carum Carvi [sadhu] Simply Wave - Changing Direction [Yellow Sunshine Explosion] Reverse - Predator [iono] Electit - Allusion [Power House] Mr. Suspect & Kingpink - 21 Gramms [Yellow Sunshine Explosion] Pulsar & Thaihanu - Resurrection [GOA] Soundcloud link: Download link: Ziptnf - Ancient Forest (1:55:09) 267MB ~320kbps Image credit to ferdinandladera.

  12. 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
  13. 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!
