Entry #7: DJ Bong – Party Like It’s 1995
Lucky #7 is a fantastic batch of tightly-mixed early Goa trance and Goa-flavored vinyl tracks, eloquently demonstrating that thinking outside the box while putting a set together can really take it to the next level. Another fine submission for the Hunab-ku Magik Mix Contest.

Here’s are the DJ’s words describing his mix…
It’s mixed from vinyl in one go, without any post editing. Usually I fuck up and have to start from the beginning or if I’ve come a long way into the mix I stop and record from the last transition and then put the two parts together afterwards but this time I got it in the first take. All transitions might not be 100% to my liking but I’m quite happy with it technically. Specially during the middle I got a nice flow.
I tried to step out of the pigeonhole and mostly during the first part I have a lot of tracks that normally might not fall in the Goa or PsyTrance genre but to me these tracks fit the description Psychedelic and Trance very well. Just listen to the Sven Väth track remixed by David Holmes, according to me way more psychedelic than any PsyTrance.
So for the first part it’s trancey and then in the last part it gets bangin’ 🙂
Without putting much thought into it I picked mostly tracks from 1995 so I have called the mix “Party Like It’s 1995”.
This is a great mix with plenty of character and wonderful flow. Thanks, Hans! 🙂
