    BUURN!!!!

    02.11.2012
    01 Metrostatic (59:16)
    - good progressive set. exactly what I need for warm up
    02 Darxis (61:56) - average, but very various trance set
    03 Alfurez (59:04) - awesome uplifting set.
    04 Galin Rashkov (60:53) - Another awesome set! My favourite
    05 April Elyse (61:43) - everything is awesome: Flow, tracks...but TRANSITIONS!!!!
    06 Lokki (61:31) -Technically set is good, but I don't feel flow.
    07 Cold Rush (60:40) - The most original set (yes, I watched tracklists - the only set with the dj-own tracks)
    08 DJ K4N (61:15) - look at set no. 06
    09 Agger (61:12)
    - look at set no. 08
    10 Enviate (58:09)
    - look at set no. 09
    11 DJ Pavle (60:10)
    - look at set no. 10

    03.11.2012
    12 Distant Moon (59:57) - Very good selection, mate!
    13 DJ Alex The Lion (61:00) - Any feedbacks? I personally think this guy should win one of 14 slots on EOYC 2012
    14 Lucas Deyong (61:21) - Like commercial trance? If yes, then it's for you, but not for me
    15 MiMaMix (59:59) - no words, only emotions. Just WOW.
    16 Isaias Cobos (60:18) - you know, to end uplifting set with progressive track - not a deal. But it's the only thing I dislike in this set. 550 Senta should be the 1st or 2nd track in this set.
    17 Kimochi (60:26) - very good, very good mix
    18 Last Sunlight (61:07) - Just enjoyed this mix.
    19 DJ Yutaka Viper (60:09) - just another average HQ trance set.
    20 tranzLift (62:00) - These guys should win one of 14 slots on EOYC 2012. Reason: they use their own production in this mix. And this production is awesome.
    21 Trancer (61:57) - Look at this guy, he's a real Trancer!
    22 Sosenka (60:23) - great melodic set! Awesome vibe!
    23 Kiddy (61:55) - ...guess...
    24 Reech (61:05) - sorry, but I don't like pop music((
    25 Voodoo Child (61:02) - uhmmm....I can't decide ..

    Wait for the new feedback!

    There wasn't a "professional" board of evaluators of the sets so far...in previous years some of the winners got a hard critique for having too many votes from their friends. It was suggested to have professional board to evaluate the sets and the votes of the community count just a percent of the final mark. None of these have been put to the test yet, i think it is time consuming to listen to 100 sets. Yet, the adrenaline of the contest is worth while the effort. BTW, i have never won a spot in EOYC even if i have participated to every contest. While i have noticed that i'm the only one mixing in key (based on playlists that highlight this feature) and be technical about stuff, that didn't matter in the end Therefore this year i have put less time in making the set and have less hopes about getting one of those 14 spots. From my experience, about half the sets submitted for this contest are really good and they would deserve a spot...i might even suggest a joint set between winning contestants

    You are not the only one who mixed in key. But I agree with you, and i'm guessing that probably 90% of the ppl doesn't even know what that is.

    and if key doesn't match, but you feel that tracks fits to each other you won't play them together because of keys? imo checking keys is for beginners... ofc it's usefull all the time, but many people can hear it without any knowledge of this rule, just because of experience

    True, but some transitions do sound horrible if they are not in key. But as i said, a lot of ppl even don't know what that is, and imo it's not, cause bigginers haven't even heard for that. That is why they don't mix like that. Anyone is free to mix how each person think it's best. \o/

    Trance music i the Universal Language \o/ I'm not here to argue. I think mix is key is good. Usually, every dj/producer that has a radio show makes mix in key, but as i said, anyone is free to do what ever he/she wants wile djing. That is the charm of it. At the end will it be good or bad, thats the other question.

    I have mixed in key intentionally. But my set also includes some transitions that were not in key. I believe you won't recognize those transitions.

    In my opinion mixing in key is a useful tool - especially for very long transitions. But you should also use your intuition. If you stick too much to mixing in key you become unflexible. And even in key transitions can sound horrible.

    Yes, i agree. One transition in my set is not mixed in key, and it's not noticeable, and i also agree that sometimes transitions in key sound horrible, but we use our ears then For me it's good, cause I don't loose a lot of time choosing tracks that i'm going to mix, cause i'm streaming 2h live sets usually every day, so it's a good toll for me.

    I've listened to 10 more sets (12-21), and here is the ones I really enjoyed:

    12. Distant Moon - You can't go wrong by combining classics with some amazing uplifting tunes, really great melodic set! =)
    16. MiMaMix - Wow! Absolutely massive uplifting journey, definitely must enter the top14. This set is #1 for me till the date.
    20. tranzLift - High energy set with their best own tracks, would be nice to hear them at EOYC
