Synchronicity Sessions Tonight!

It's been a while since I've posted about my club's radio show, and I've gotten a lot of feedback for my lead off set on WITR...

Tonight, the two DJs will be playing on the radio will be DJ Danny C. and DJ Johnny Goggles (John Skinner)!

Dan was on #12 of the podcast, and he also spent an enormously long time helping me master the promo CD mix for Trance Journey 17. He will be on at 8PM with a MASSIVE trance and progressive set! John will be on at 9 with some crazy psytrance and happy hardcore tunes (radio appropriate :P) that you also may enjoy. I don't have John's tracklist on hand, but here is Dan's:

1.The Doppler Effect - Beauty Hides In The Deep (The Blizzard Remix)

*EDIT (By request)
I also mentioned in the music/podcast section of the website that Dan has got a podcast going on iTunes right now that he started a few months ago.

**EDIT The show tonight was canceled due to some technical difficulties with the music. WITR is still online, so if you want to tune in, they are running automated rock and alternative tunes.
:( sorry

Randy Boyer Episode is Uploading! Fixed a Few XML Feed Related Problems

Trance Journey #18 has been available for most of today, however there was a few issues with the enhancement on the podcast and I ran into some problems updating the xml feed.


Trance Journey #18 got a few improvements a couple minutes ago, which include:

-Higher quality images at chapter points
-Links to websites and podcasts at chapter points
-Bumped up the volume on a couple voice over spots (was too low)

You will be able to notice the difference between the two by seeing that "enMass" is now written as "EnMass."

---

Also, if you update the podcast in iTunes, Winamp, or another media player, you should see some duplicates of earlier episodes. All of the duplicates besides the Randy episode are identical to the originals, so feel free to go ahead and delete them.

Sorry about the minor problems...hope you all enjoy the Randy Boyer episode!

Random Render/Export Problems encountered late Friday Night...episode 18 slightly delayed

The latest episode...as you may notice...isn't up yet. :(

I've encountered some random export errors in soundtrack pro 2 while trying to export the finished master (with voice overs). I'm considering giving apple a call today and resolving the issue, so I can export the mix and get it up.

Sorry for the delay...It will be up soon.

Randy Boyer on Trance Journey this Friday! Also considering re-working part of the CD...

This Friday, look out for a brand new episode of Trance Journey! I moved the podcast ahead a week, so expect updates every two weeks starting this Friday. The big news for this episode of Trance Journey, as previously mentioned, is that the amazing trance producer/DJ Randy Boyer has done a guest mix for the show.

Randy has sent me a promo mix with all his current and shortly upcoming productions for '08, so you will get hear all of those cool new tunes in the second hour! For the first hour, I've got a lot of new stuff in this week's episode. Look out for some fresh new singles...Some of my favorites from the episode include the Cosmic Gate dub mix of "Sirens of the Sea" that recently came out, and also a brand new tune from Woody Van Eyden and Alex M.O.R.P.H.

Episode should be up Friday.

--------

On another note, I'm considering re-doing the end of the Promo CD mix in the next couple weeks. I wasn't as impressed with the flow of the mix after "Activa - Remember (Club Mix)" as all the songs leading up to that, so I may decide to re-edit and re-master the end of the CD. This won't happen till after May 23rd if it does (due to schoolwork and projects). I don't think I will be releasing the episode again, however Randy said that he is going to play the 1 hour version of the mix on his BUZZ radio show sometime in May. If I re-work the end, it will probably be on DJ Addison's Rotation #100. He's thinking about doing something cool with the 100th episode of his podcast, and I threw out the idea to have a massive guest mix episode...

"About" section updated, and new Myspace bio

I updated the "About" section with a new write up of my DJing and production experience, and a friend of mine wrote up a nice new biography, which can be found on my Myspace page and Last.fm.

If you haven't checked out the myspace, I would encourage you to do so. the link for that is:
myspace.com/djrpginthemix.

The Last.fm page hasn't been updated much at all, but feel free to check it out as well here.

Podcast XML Feed Acting strange - Fixing right now...

For some reason episode 12 with Dan as a guest got removed from the xml feed. I'm going to re-upload this episode and then update the feed.

If you already have episode 12, you will see a grayed out "Trance Journey #12 with Guest Mix by DJ Danny C." appear either when you update the podcast or get a new episode. This one I'm uploading now is the exact same file that was there before, so don't worry about deleting the one in gray...unless of course you haven't heard it yet ;).

Sorry for the confusion. Nothing new is up right at the moment, just some minor fixes.


*EDIT - I decided to upload a 256 KBps version of the episode...if you're interested in a higher quality version of the same mix, that will be available today
-------------
While updating the feed, I've also decided to take down the first 8 episodes from iTunes because I'm trying to keep the list capped at the 10 most recent episodes of the podcast. This makes the store presentation look a bit less cluttered, and I think it's better to stay with only the recent episodes. The first episode dates back all the way to last summer anyways.

Trance Journey #17 up in 17 minutes!

The latest episode is uploading RIGHT NOW. I decided to release the whole CD as a podcast episode, so you are in for a musical treat!

Tracklisting for episode #17 can now be found in the Music/Podcast Section of the website.

As I mentioned in the show, the popular ASOT/Armada trance artist and DJ Randy Boyer will be on Trance Journey #18. That episode is due out next Thursday/Friday.

Stay tuned for a slammin' episode next week!

New Promo CD has been Super Mastered! And a Special Guest Mix on #18!

I bet all of you iTunes listeners are wondering where the episode is by now...

I spent around 6-7 more hours on the CD last night with my friend Danny Chen, who was featured on episode #12 of the podcast to create a literally PERFECT version of the CD. We used some more mastering tools to enhance the audio and check the output levels all the way through. I've heard this mix around 5 or 6 times start to end, and with the full, leveled, and enhanced sound it sounds even better than the one I thought was already great! I'm starting to think that we achieved sound quality better than Armin's ASOT 2007 album...

I'm also in the process of contacting someone for some cool voice over spots in the podcast episodes. If you have gotten around to checking out Addison's Rotation podcast, you may have heard some of those "You're listening to Rotation...with DJ Addison" voice promos. The guy that did those actually worked on the A State of Trance Yearmix 2007 intro voice over with Armin and probably other ASOT episodes as well. If I could get him to do promos for Trance Journey, that would be awesome!

So if he gets back to me soon, and is able to record a few sound files in the next couple days, the episode is going to be up a little bit late. It's definitely worth it.

--------

Also, RANDY BOYER is going to do a guest mix for Trance Journey #18!!!
