Please beloved participants, be creative this year. Last time i heard tons of uplifting trance sets with the same boring music. Also, i know it's hard, but don't vote for members because you like them or because he/she is popular. Listen to the sets and valorize hard work, creativity and flow.

Let's make EOYC better and better each year. It depends on you.

I agree, it would be better with some diversity, but we can't really force people to be so. Would love to hear some darker, more progressive sets from more unknown artists, but if people like uplifting, we can't really do much about it. I just hope people will play what they like and not just picks the Top 100 Chart on Beatport because those tracks are popular for some weird reason.

Nothing's better than finding a lovely track after spending 2 hours on Beatport/Junodownload/Audiojelly etc :)

With all due respect, you can hear darker progressive stuff nearly 24/7 on here. What we need is uplifting trance. Much more of it. The more the better. There's plenty of good stuff around and it needs to be played. Again with all due respect, the progressive stuff bores me to death. Most of it is dull, unhappy music, same sounds all the time, and at times little more than noise.

With all due respect, right back at ya, the dark progressive stuff I'm talking about is not to be found here. I agree uplifting is a dying art here, but last year we almost got to many uplifting sets during EOYC from the members. I'm definitely not talking about Cosmic Gate, Arty and so on, I'm talking about much darker, heavier stuff, but I know that's too far-stretching.
It's fair enough you have that point of view, I currently think the same as that about almost all uplifting trance at the moment, but maybe that'll change in the future :smile:
But let's not talk more about that here, let's just have fun! :)

Agreed mate, we could use some proper deep progressive trance, like Timewave´s or Deep Soul Duo´s :) I listen to both uplifting and deep progressive and I think they can be also combined here on AH.FM

speaking of this, you get some good point. It would be nice if the requirement also include tech-trance (Mental Asylum stuff from Indecent Noise) , it will make the contests more vivid :)

With all due respect, about the tons of uplifting trance, we can not control of other DJs choices, if that's what they like uplifting trance. Same thing apply for me on progressive trance, it sounds bored, but if the DJs like it... I won't judge them cause this is their personality!

up to now I've been a passive listener on ah.fm but I've just registered to take part on this contest. Upload is currently running.
Would it be ok if I also upload my set to mixcloud?

Hello Everyone! Couldn't wait for contest!!

Very excited now that so many people eagerly await the opening of the submission phase!
It's gonna be a fantastic EOYC once again and this time, like Katadunkass and several others already said, I hope there will be more variety in trance - something "outside the boundaries"! Let it be crazy uplifting / tech mixes, crushing progressive house sets, psy-influenced mixtapes or even anything much more different from the usual trance sound. Only this would make every single set worth a listen and all of those great tracks released in 2012 will somehow be featured.

Same as last year, I'll also be participating in the contest under my alias "ENVIATE (http://www.mixcloud.com/Enviate/)".
If you share these thoughts by chance, I would really like to introduce you to a fairly new style of trance which I've not seen a single set of ever before. Allow yourself a one-hour dive into an innovative, yet so familiar universe of music! Thanks so much for considering voting for this mixtape. The direct link to downloads listed in the poll topic will appear soon.

Good luck everyone!

:bravo::grinning: :thankyou: I would post more icons but you get the point. I couldn't have said it better myself. But, this is where Trance shows it's diversity. There are so many endless variety and mixes that can be made from just one genera. Uplifting Trance will always remain #1 in my book though so keep an eye out for my mix :music:
