Someone once told me, the problem with progressive, is that it doesn’t progress. This can be very true. Many DJ sets these days that are classified as “progressive”, are just essentially just 1 or 2 hours of music, at the same pace, in the same musical key.
This is my attempt at changing that, and exposing some new listeners to what my interpretation of progressive trance is. Though granted, not all of the tracks used in this mix are strictly “trance”. This 2hr set from me, takes you through a journey of house, prog house, goa/psy trance, building into melodic/vocal/uplifting trance. It’s my version of progressive music….progressed.
So where does the DJ Toasty name come from? Well – there is a story behind that, but the reason I’ve called this 2hr set “DreamensioN presents DJ Toasty…” is because, DJ Toasty will now be my alias when releasing slower, down tempo, left of the middle mixes. I know this set isn’t completely left of mainstream (dance/trance) music, but it is at a much slower, chilled out pace to my normal “Universal Language” DJ sets. Hence the name change.
From now on, when you see something from me that has the “DJ Toasty” name on it, expect it to be not what I normally produce. Expect it to be a different flavour of electronic music – one that (depending on your range of musical taste), maybe something you quite enjoy. Something different.
Please enjoy this 2hr set from me, of chilled beats, proggy, groovy basslines, and uplifting melodies and vocals.
