    Ask Me Anything 001: How to build up a set, My DJ playlists, Opinion on the Trance scene (Preview)

    Welcome to 'Ask Me Anything', a new audio podcast where I answer your questions on music curation, the art of DJing, the music industry, record labels, behind-the-scenes, productivity, tech, and other areas of expertise and pretty much anything else, as the name suggests.

    In this episode:

    ✓ Question 1: ‘I would love to see how a DJ set builds up. Is it driven by the mood or more like new tracks / tracks you haven’t played before?’
    🔒 Question 2: ‘It would be really interesting to understand the reasoning behind how you curate your DJ playlists’
    🔒 Question 3: ‘How would you assess the current state of the Trance scene, including your thoughts on the quality of music being released nowadays?’

    You can listen to a preview of this episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify Podcasts, YouTube, SoundCloud, and Mixcloud, while the full episodes are available exclusively to my Patreon subscribers.

Perfect Mixes And Atmosphere

I’ve been listening to this Podcast ever since 2015-2016. This Podcast got me into Psytrance and Deep House after hearing Trippy, Daniel, and a few other artists that are astounding on guest mixes, they are never dull and bland. They help you focus especially on work and exercise. I highly suggest to download these if you need help focusing and for enjoyment while driving. Much love and shout outs to Daniel! Never wrote a review but here it is.

😊😭👌😍 ,

Great music to work to

Daniel puts together wonderful mixes that help me focus on my coding projects. Apart from his intro to each mix (and the occasionally breathy lady speaking “Raaaave Pod-cast”), there’s generally no vocals to distract the listener. Super quality mixing. I discover a new favorite track within each mix.

Desprenhz ,

Consistently incredible driving trance sets

Have been listening for years and haven't heard a bad set yet. Great driving Progressive and psychedelic for serious fans of trance. No Tiesto junk here.
