Customer ReviewsSee All
I love hard trance
Wonderful music except for saying open up every 30 seconds
Great dj and great music but enough of open up every 30 seconds to a minute we don’t need to hear no other podcast says it so much it starts to effect the mix.
Thank goodness you've continued to stay in your original roots and haven't branched out into the mainstream sound. Love the podcasts... they'll keep you sane.
