Infinitive: The 2012 Yearbook

It’s here! Santa Claus has come to town. And he is bearing gifts. Four gifts all wrapped into one dedication to the year 2012. As promised before, and a tradition only going back to 2009 (that was my first Yearmix); my gift to all of you. The 2012 Infinitive Yearmix. Just like last year I had the Devil’s own job to select 100 tracks from throughout the year to form this magical collection of trance music. Even though 100 sounds like a lot (and to be honest, it is), I still had trouble selecting just those tracks I really liked. Because it has been a good year, unlike what some people have been saying over the past few months. Sayings of that the trance scene was spiraling downwards, the ‘true sound’ was disappearing, and the whole discussion that arose around Anjunabeats. But all of that was utter BS. The scene hasn’t gone downwards, not even close. If people pay close attention to what actually happens in the scene, than they can see that, yes the sound has changed noticeably, but the true sound isn’t gone. As shown by this year mix. Last year I included a lot of tracks from the Anjunabeats imprint and this year is no exception, but the sound of these releases has changed.

This year has been an excellent year, especially from the likes of Enhanced Recordings and Enhanced Progressive. Grew to be my favorite label of the year. I have included a lot of tracks from the Enhanced imprint, not even every track I liked. I needed room for all the other tracks from other labels. It has been the year of new talents: Norin & Rad, Ost & Meyer, Jjoo, Abstract Vision & Elite Electronic, Broning, LTN and Suncatcher.

So what is this year mix all about? As I’ve said: 100 tracks spread across 4 CDs, all around the 2 hours and 15 minute mark. Featuring what was the best in trance music, in my opinion. And yes, before you all start correcting me, tracks 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 aren’t technically trance, but they do serve an excellent start to a 2+ hours mix.

That is all I have to say for now. I hope you all enjoy this trip down 2012 Memory Lane. And of course my best wishes for 2013 and a very very happy Christmas. Hoping 2013 can deliver the same music magical-ness!

Infinitive 2012: Chapter 12: Helsinki

For the last time this year I present you the final chapter of the Infinitive 2012 Chapters. For this last month, this month of holidays, we travel further north to a place where it’s pretty much always cold: the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Finland doesn’t seem to be that interesting at first glance but do remember that three of the most recognized producers from the trance scene are from Finland: Super8, DJ Tab and Michael Cassette. This last mix features a great progressive sound throughout the mix, kicking off with tracks and remixes by Robert Nickson, Shingo Nakamura, Karanda and an impressive new found sound by UK trance monster Temple One. Also featured is the long awaited release of Above & Beyond’s ‘Alchemy’ featuring lush vocals by Anjunabeats regular Zoë Johnston. Also to be found in the mix this month is Abstract Vision & Elite Electronic’s collaboration with Broning to create ‘Relict’. Again a new production by Giuseppe Ottaviani, new material by Van Gelder and a quite surprising remix by Bryan Kearney of Armin van Buuren’s 2005 Sensation Anthem ‘Serenity’ featuring Jan Wayne. Enjoy this month and keep an eye on the holidays, because the Yearmix (‘Europe’s Finest’) is on its way!
