During the Mayday 2005 transmisson I was browsing the einslive website. What a pleasant suprise. There will be a new show called Eins Live Rocker starting on May 7th, 2005, were top DJ’s from the German club scene will be presenting 2 hour sets, each Saturday/Sunday night a different DJ. Moguai will be the first. The show will be running from 0:00 until 2:00 Sunday morning. einslive is even broadcasting over the Internet.
This is very good news. I’m still somewhat missing the old Partyservice with Piet Blank. Since the demise of the Partyservice I’ve somewhat lost touch with the style of music, which is usually played by Piet Blank and even more so by Moguai. What I don’t get is, how that radio show can be called “Rocker”. Judging from Moguai’s website, it appears that Moguai played a major role in the creation of this show.
Bad news: A State Of Trance is no longer broadcasted on etn.fm and might stop altogether at least on etn.fm. Digitally Imported was apparently able to secure exclusive rights, which would mean, that ASOT will only be freely available as a 96k stream.
During Monday evening I’ve been listening to the Mellomania Deluxe radio show with Pedro del Mar and DJ Shah on Sunshine Live and during the last hour from 23:00-24:00 they played a mix by Adam White. And sometime in the middle of the mix, I thought I hear something by Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder. But the playlist lists “whitewash” as interpret. No Pearl Jam.
But today I became curious again and googled after “whitewash better man” and really found this, some link about the clubbing scene in Hong Kong, an entry apparently by Matt Darey. So I was right after all, that I heard Eddie Vedder singing, which is a remix of a bootleg Pearl Jam ballad.It’s so nice (for the most part), that there is this vast space of the Internet.
I just noticed, that the next trance oriented broadcast, namely GDBJ went off-line and that the radio station, which aired GDJB switched from Dance to Rock. Trance music is apparently really at the end of it’s life cycle. I hope, that enough trance music continues to exist on the Internet.
Great news on ETN.fm. A State Of Trance is back as an Online show, at least for the time being.
I wrote, that I prepared a CUE file for the “ASOT Tune of the Year 2004” mix from Armin van Buuren. I updated the file with corrected time stamps. The minutes and seconds were shifted a column to the right and the times for the last 4 tracks were a little bit off.
