    A Journey Back in Time || August 2009 - feat. Blake Jarrell

    A Journey Back in Time || August 2009 - feat. Blake Jarrell

    Found my old hard drive from the late 2000s that had a bunch of my first podcasts backed up on it. 
    The current "Sound and Machine" used to be called "Chicago Tranceformation" as I was still living in Chicago at the time, and my DJ alias was "Zita Zie" at the time.
    Enjoy this upcoming 2 hour trance podcast that first aired in August 2009. 
    The first hour features an exclusive guest mix from Blake Jarrell (Armada), and the second hour is filled with one of my DJ mixes. 
    Cheers!

    A Journey Back in Time || September 2009 - feat. Kelly Trance

    A Journey Back in Time || September 2009 - feat. Kelly Trance

    Hey all! 
    Years ago, before Sound and Machine was "Sound and Machine" this podcast was called "Chicago Tranceformation", and I used to dj under the alias "Zita Zie". It was an amazing time for dance music. Trance dominated, underground parties and mega clubs were a thing, and the electronic music scene was fireworks. So good =)
    It was also an era when podcasting was still in its evolving stages and online dance radio stations started to gain major traction: such radio stations were ASOT, ETN, DI.fm., and many more!
    Chicago Tranceformation was syndicated with several, including ETN, but after a wonderful year of doing it, I decided to ease up on the podcasting.
    I thought the original hard drive storing these mixes was fried or lost  - but I just found it - and had 10 amazing two hour mixes on it featuring various guest DJs from around the world. 
     
    Today we are re-broadcasting the September 2009 episode:
    1st hour: guest DJ Kelly Trance aka Kelly Goldstein  https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/kellytrance
    2nd hour: me as Zita Zie from Chicago
     
    Enjoy the music!

    Zara Meets Welty - Pandemic Bass Mix 2020 [San Francisco]

    Zara Meets Welty - Pandemic Bass Mix 2020 [San Francisco]

    Recorded a mix during lock down to free my thoughts after a day of intensity. Strange times, living during a worldwide pandemic. We are so lucky to have internet and ways to connect with each other despite being far and isolated from each other. Did you know that in 1918 the human population went through something similar? It was called the Spanish flu. Feeling blessed to live in current times vs back then, as we have better medical knowledge and way cooler technology.
    Enjoy the chill tunes and cant wait to see you in person when the stay home bans are over! I miss the festivals, the night clubs, and most of all you, my community. Cant wait to give hugs to friends and dance together again!!!

    Zita Molnar [recorded live] at Burning Man 2019 at DISTRIKT

    Zita Molnar [recorded live] at Burning Man 2019 at DISTRIKT

    Had a blast playing a Friday DJ set at Burning Man 2019 at Distrikt. The Distrikt crew's production at the burn always blows my mind: shade structure, open bar, top notch music by local and international artists, good vibes, water guns, misting stations, friendly people, amazing sound system - oy! The list just goes on. Shout out to Camp Enchante, the Hungaroid crew, and the lovely friends from the many corners of the world who said hello during my set. Burning Man is always like a big "framily" reunion - and 2019 was no exception.
    Love,
    Zita
