Colin C – Halcyon Days (DJ Mix)
Trance. How does that make you feel? If it evokes a smile and misty memories, read on. If it makes you shudder at the relentless march of predictable peaking, look away.
Colin C (aka Slighter and Visitor Seven) has been on a nostalgia fest. He’s posted a downloadable mix of trance and prog house tunes from the late 90s to the early 00s. Things like Art of Trance, BT and Cygnus-X. As for why, he explains:
“Halcyon Days is a purely nostalgic mix I made from my vinyl collection of some of the music that I grew up on inside the “rave culture” of the late 90s and early 00s. I owe a lot of who I am today from that period, and each record was selected to bring back those fond memories I have….
Seems like others feel the same way, as I’ve given it to my closest friends who have recommended getting this up on SoundCloud as a free download.
I guess there is something about looking back now, more than ten years later, at all this music with a different set of eyes. We’ve all grown in different directions, living in different cities with different desires for what we all want in life… but we can all still take a moment to ourselves wherever we are and listen with that tremendous grin on our faces as our minds go right back to where it all started.
Please enjoy and share with everyone and anyone who was back there with you, as this is really for you all. “
