Lunch Trance – 2024-02-28 – Newsflash

Wow, I totally forget to publish last week’s post, and I also managed to not see any comments about that on the CQAH Discord!🙈

Drax, pointing at me, yelling “you must be so embarrassed!”
Oh, I am, Drax, believe me…

Okay, let’s focus on some good things, e.g. all the new good tracks I played tonight! A selection of those is:

  • “Losing Control” by Jody 6
  • Ashley Wallbridge and John Grand, “Echoes”
  • Aly & Fila and Lostly, “The Unknown”
  • “Moonlight” by Alex M.O.R.P.H., Marjan, and Woody van Eyden
  • “Skyfall” by Kinetica
  • “Remember the Future” by Christian Cambas

As Favourite of the Week™ I picked this beauty: the Rina Mirai Tech remix of Rinaly’s “Astrology.”

I managed to start the stream one minute late but you can listen to it right now, without any delay. Isn’t technology wonderful? 😊

I will be leaving for Mountainbytes on Thursday morning, which means I need the Wednesday evening for packing all my stuff, and that means that this week’s Newsflash is a day early!

So you had to wait one day less to hear these cool new tracks:

  • Andrea Ribeca, “Destination Outer Space”
  • Metta & Glyde, “Breathe”
  • Yoshi & Razner, “Genesis”

And you also get the Favourite of the Week one day earlier! As was noted in the chat, this track is indeed banging: “Street Rave” by Maria Healy.

If you missed everything but the last three tracks, here’s your chance to listen to the 30 or so tracks that preceded the last three tracks:

Well, say goodbye to January, everyone! That’s roughly 8.5% of the year gone. Don’t be all surprised when the next End of the Year mix is being announced!

And it’s probably going to be another massive one. This January alone will add 16 tracks to it… if that continues, the next mix will have roughly 200 tracks and will last for… uhm… 16 hours? Oh boy, I don’t think I could survive that. 😄

All the tracks can be checked out below in the playlist, and I’m going to give a special mention to one or two of the tracks, plus there’s going to be another Favourite of the Week, too. One track I really liked (and that made my admin interface crash 😂), was “Is It Trance?” by David Forbes. It’s most definitely on the border line somewhere between trance and techno but dang, it slaps. Then there was a flashback to L.A. Style with Indecent Noise’s “JK Is Dead,” and John Askew remixed “Save Me” by BT and Christian Burns. The Favourite of the Week, however, is this gem: “Crimson Moon” by Cris Grey and Parnassvs! Check it out right here:

The whole show is, as usual, available right here:

January is progressing quite nicely, one more show to go and then we’re already deep in February territory!

But first we need to get January over with. So… what did we have? As so often, many great tracks, and the playlist below has all the details.

The Favourite of the Week is by an apparently brand-new artist named Mark Wilks, and the track is called “Deepest Truth.” Check it out below!

The whole show is being kept fresh and waits for you to press that button:

Lunch Trance – 2024-01-17 – Newsflash

It’s Wednesday, my dudes.
Time for me to play some tunes.
You don’t want to miss that.

What a remarkable oaf.


Okay, time to move on!

The new year is starting to shape up nicely, and I’m already looking forward to this year’s End of the Year mix! Well, talk about anticipation… 😄

First things first, though: this week! What did we have? Lots of stuff. Check the playlist below! For the Favourite of the Week, I picked this track: “Why So Serious” by Diandra Faye and Roman Messer.

You can listen to the other tracks without it being Wednesday if you hit the play button right below:

Lunch Trance – 2024-01-10 – Newsflash

It seems the change of the year has finally caught up with us, or have we caught up with the change of the year?

Either way, there were only six new tracks I could present to you today. A special shoutout needs to go to a track that debuted last week on my show, the 2023 Remastered Version of Lost Knowledge’s “Delirium” — somehow this track managed to totally slip by me unnoticed. Great track!

And there is another track which deserves a special mention, because it somehow was very much not like the other tracks, and not in an annoying way but it an unexpected and rather good way. I have to admit, I did not expect to play… uh… trance rap in my show? But yes, “Run” by Vizionn was pretty cool, too.

However, I am old and set in my ways so of course this week’s Favourite of the Week is the new release “Release” by Nhato. 😄

The rest of the tracks are good, too, make no mistake! And here you can listen to them yourself:

First things first.

Happy New Year! May you 2024 be the best year that has ever happened to you!

My 2024 started quite relaxed, I stayed at home, there were food and movies and loved ones, I couldn’t really ask for anything more.❤ I hope your New Year’s Day was just as relaxing as mine.

Alright, enough of that, let’s get back to business. The ever-important business of enjoying great new trance tunes, that is!

Today’s show was very mixed; half of the tracks were from last year! 😀

Okay, okay, I’ll stop fooling around. There was a bunch of great new tracks this week, such as “You” by Asteroid, “Butterfly” by Sam Laxton, Kevin Krissen, Milan Gavris, and Techno Cats released a cover version of “In and Out of Love” (by nobody else than Sharon den Adel and Armin van Buuren), Scot Project released a new EP, containing “C3 (Celestial),” “M2 (Make Me Feel),” and “Y2 (Yeah Yeah),” there was the SUPERSTRINGS remix of “Soundpiercing” by Prototype, and Nu Spirit contributed the Favourite of the Week: “Rise of the Phoenix.”

So, there you have it. 2024 has begun, and I expect there to be many, many great new tracks! I’m almost already looking forward to this year’s End of the Year mix… 😆 but first let’s get this week’s episode going. Hit the button below!

The next show will be on Wednesday, January 10, at 19:00 CET/UTC+1.

Lunch Trance – 2023-12-30 – End of the Year

And there it finally is, the last show of the year. Also, the longest show of the year. And the longest show of all shows in the history of shows! Well, of my shows at least…

I took my track management tool, selected all tracks that I have added in 2023 and that have a ★★★★ or ★★★★★ rating, and put them into their own playlist, and there were 163 (one hundred and sixty-three) tracks in that playlist. The show lasted for a bit longer than 12 (twelve) hours, and my feet are a bit ouchy now.

After the show I started with all the post-show processing, and the first thing I do after starting the encoding of the MP3 is to get the playlist from my DJ tool. I switched to the browser tab, opened the “History” section and confidently pressed the “Reset” button, you know, the one with the trash can on it, because that reloads the playlist from the server.

Does that make sense? No. No, it does not. What does make sense, though, is that that button deletes the playlist from the server.

So… yeah. I have a recording but it will not have a playlist in it… yet. I will probably go through the whole file and manually extract the timestamps for all the tracks, but not today. (Edit: the timestamps have been fixed, both on Mixcloud and the playlist below.)

The next show is going to be a regular show again, the first show of the new year! Tune in on Wednesday, January 3rd, at 19:00 CET/UTC+1!
