The TrancePodium Podcast 050 with Megän Fair & Daniel Wanrooy

During these difficult COVID-19 times, without parties and with hardly a chance to head for the sunnier countries on vacation, no Ibiza, we spend more time at home and when it gets sunny, in our gardens or on our balconies. So what better music for that than some nice progressive music.

Keeping the scene on its toes, last year’s ‘Search’ culminated in the November arrival of ‘ISOS’s first ‘winter edition’. With 2020 however, series-braintrust Black Hole Recordings have restored release balance to ‘In Search Of Sunrise’s force (they figured you could use the dependability!)

But Captain Outburst has been anything but idle, spending the interim DJing, A&Ring, label running, ‘Confirm Humanity’-releasing, remixing, producing and mastering his way around the known dance universe.

Jessy & DJ Xquizit with OSITO - Reality

For those of us who were into dance music back in the mid-00s, there are several tracks that we remember being everywhere. We couldn’t go to the gym or shopping for clothes without hearing them. Every time we went to the Virgin Megastore when we went to the Dance section we would find compilation CDs and those songs were there too.

Pure Progressive Vol. 1 mixed by Orkidea

It took a shade under 30 months for Pure Progressive to rock past its 100th release.

Barone, O’Glue, Saint-Jules, Schossow, Driftmoon, label honch Solarstone (naturally) - you name ‘em, they’ve all received their PP pin.
