On Jan 3, 2015, I was honored to do a collab B2B set with a DJ gaining some notoriety in the Seattle Trance scene, Bobby Lilly, a.k.a. Digital Ascension, along with a host of other local powerhouse Trance DJ’s including another B2B set by Randall Glenn and Marc Pospisil a.k.a. MarQ, for the Resolution Recovery party at Foundation Nightclub featuring special guest headliner and favorite of the Anjunadeep label, SUSPECT 44. This was such a fun and rare night, simply because A.) the crowd was TOTALLY awesome, B.) Suspect 44 rules, C.) B2B sets are very rare and fun experiences, and D.) did I mention Suspect 44 rules (haha)? It was really a cool experience collaborating with Bobby Lilly a.k.a. Digital Ascension on this set and as you might discover for yourself we definitely have different taste in Trance, so I really loved the way this set turned out because Digital Ascension’s more epic, huge, emotional tracks really worked well with my more melodic and euphoric “Progressivy” tracks, and the crowd really seemed to love the end result, which is always the best desired outcome!! Hope you enjoy! -Mark

On, Dec 31, 2014, I was honored to be one of the opening DJ’s. along with my good Seattle DJ buddies Ryan Ditch a.k.a. RION, and Brandon Power-Up, for USC’s New Year’s Eve Party at Foundation Nightclub in Seattle, featuring special guest headliner, PARIS BLOHM, up-and-coming DJ/Producer talent from LA, CA, known for his driving Progressive and Electro beats and who’s tracks have been getting support from Tiesto, Hardwell, and Sander Van Doorn, to name a few. It was a sold out club that night with an amazing energy and loving crowd, and such a fun set to spin – I set out to make this one a nice Deep Progressive build-up with some amazing new tracks; kicked it off with the brand new “Saturn 2014” from Scottish producer and radio talent, Steve Anderson, featured yet another awesome track, “Liverpool”, from my talented young Serbian producer buddy, ODISON, have some of my usual Fave suspects in there like Sound Quelle, Blood Groove & Kikis, and Glaue, finally ending off with the crescendo vintage House track and one of my personal all-time favorite songs, Dave Aude & Tall Paul’s “Common Ground - Club Dub” to hand off to Brandon Power-up for his House set. Truly an awesome NYE celebration that I will never forget. Hope you enjoy!! -Mark

Over the holidays I decided to put together a 138 BPM Hi-NRG Trance demo set packed with melodic, euphoric, and uplifting little gems that have been burning a hole in my pocket for a while. Most of these tracks are new-ish (released in 2014) but also included a few older tracks that I love, especially the track I kick it off with, “A View From The Clouds” by a German Trance producer from Bavaria named Mattias Herbst, who called himself “Audioplacid” as a Trance producer; I heard this track on DI.FM probably around the year 2000 and located Audioplacid on Myspace to let him know how much I loved that track, for which he was kind enough to send to me the MP3 (Note: this is the only MP3 on the mix, the rest were spun with lossless AIFF files on my CDJ’s). So far as I know “A View From The Clouds” was never officially released, but I have always loved this track with its excessive usage of the addictive high-hat percussion so reminiscent of Trance back in those days and electric guitar samples, and it inspired the name and the feel for this set, all these years later. I hope you enjoy!! -Mark

On Saturday, December 13th, 2014, I was honored to be an opening DJ along with my good buddies Joshua Schweigert a.k.a. Mantaray and Johnny Monsoon, for UK DJ/Producer who has over 1.8 Million listeners to his radio show on BBC Radio 1, winner of BBC Radio 1 “Superstar DJ” competition, and regular resident at such legendary venues as Gate Crasher, Pacha Ibiza, Creamfields, and Ministry of Sound, DANNY HOWARD. This set was super fun to play because the club was packed, I had a ton of friends show up for my set, plus I had a little longer to play than the usual 1-hour time slot (turned out to be nearly 90 minutes) and it was a 9-10pm opening set so I started off with some chilled-down House and Progressive House and worked into a little more Trancy stuff later into the mix. Hope you enjoy the set!! Cheers and Happy Holidays!! –Mark, a.k.a. GOTEK

On Saturday, November 22nd, I was incredibly honored to be one of the opening DJ’s for one of my most favorite Trance acts of all time, all the way from Helsinki, Finland, SUPER8 & TAB. On top of that I was also opening with two of the Northwest’s biggest Trance DJ’s, Johnny Monsoon and Darrius Washington, plus a quadruple Birthday party celebration including mine, so it truly was a special night that I will never forget. I had so many friends at this show, my guest list was full, and by the time Johnny Monsoon was finished with his set the club was nearly at capacity so my set from 10-10:45pm was incredible with so much energy and love radiating from the crowd, I will never forget this night. Getting to meet Super8 & Tab was totally amazing as well, totally sweet and humble guys, and their set was out of this world. This set was easily one of the most memorable sets I probably will ever have the chance to play; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did spinning it. Cheers! -Mark

On Saturday, November 1st, I was honored to be one of the two opening DJ’s for ANTONIO GIACCA and EDX for USC Progression Saturdays at Foundation Nightclub, along with my friend Joshua Schweigert a.k.a. Mantaray. This was an indescribable, dreamlike night for many reasons, good and bad, having to do with a massive rave in Seattle getting cancelled that night due to tragic circumstances and Foundation being overrun by 1000’s of people, many of whom not able to get in due to it being sold out unfortunately, but for those that did, we also had a TOTAL surprise walk-on cameo appearance of Ilan Bluestone for an unbelievably awesome hour set of Anjunabeats finest Trance, which was one of the most incredible experiences of my DJ career so far, to hand off to Bluestone, what an honor. EDX and Antonio Giacca were amazing as well, and I hung out with these guys all night. Well, I could go on and on about this one, but that’s all I will say for this set, one I will never forget, ever.. Hope you enjoy. -Mark

Just recorded this demo mix on my gear a couple weekends ago on Saturday, September 27th, 2014 - something motivated me to grab some of the epic Trance choons I have been listening to lately and mix them in honor of my favorite time of year, Autumn, that fleeting few months in between the summer heat and the approaching winter chill, ramping up into the blur of the Holiday Season with family and friends, with the amazing orange, pink, and royal blue sunrises of the Indian Summer before the eternal rains set in for months on end, and the leaves of the Northwest turn the most brilliant colors as they begin to fall from the trees; old life makes way for the new in an endless cycle, sort of a melancholy feeling, but always with a glimmer of hope. That is the feeling I tried to capture with this mix, and I literally felt like I was floating by myself as the CDJ’s glowed and the subwoofer shook my tiny studio. I hope you enjoy! =) -Mark

On Saturday, September 13th, 2014, I was honored to be one of the opening DJ’s, along with two good buddies of mine and two of Seattle’s best known Trance DJ’s, Johnny Monsoon and Darrius Washington, for the world-renown Trance Producer & DJ duo from Görlitz, Germany, that I have been a huge fan of for nearly a decade, composed of Matthias Gierth (Stoneface) & Henry Nix (Terminal), better known as STONEFACE & TERMINAL. This was a very special eve and I had a lot of friends show up for my set which always makes it that much more awesome to be spinning, and there was such a sense of Trance Family and community at the club that night, incredible vibes and of course, the most amazing Trance all night long. I had the opening 9-10pm spot so chose some more ambient, atmospheric, and extremely euphoric Progressive House and Progressive Trance to kick the night off right. It’s mostly comprised of mostly relatively newer releases including work from four of my favorite producers these days, Johan Vilborg, Vitodito, Timur Shafiev, and Blood Groove & Kikis, a really amazingly addicting opening track by Glaue, and also was finally able to spin two of my favorite Progressive House tracks from yesteryear, they just fit so well into the mix, “Lassoo” by Jody Wisternoff, and “Neon Void” by Jaytech. Anyway, as usual, hope you enjoy the mix! –Mark a.k.a. DJ Gotek. =)

New demo mix, this is actually a “semi” remake of one of my very first Trance mixes that I called “Vapour Trail” from right around 9 years ago and it’s been on the to-do list for the past several years to redo it on my new gear with lossless AIFF files for a richer sound and slightly tweak it to hopefully make it better than the original. It was kind of a special mix to me back then because I tried my hardest to pick out the absolutely most spine-tingly, euphoric, melodic, uplifting trance I could find, with the iciest peaks, truly breath-taking breakdowns, and most majestic drops, truly something that could make you feel like you were flying if you listened deeply and lost yourself in it, and the end result people seemed to really like this set and I received a lot of positive feedback from it. On this set I used six tracks from the original Vapour Trail mix, and also blended in some newer Trance to keep it interesting and fresh, as well as inserted a few sound bites from the Apollo 11 mission and Neil Armstrong’s first step on the moon. One of the things I love most about Trance is the way it unites people from around the world, and back when I put together the original Vapour Trail mix two guys that I had met on an Internet radio blog that we could post our mixes to and be critiqued by the friends that we made online, had inspired me to make this mix (and a few that followed) with a supersonic flight and/or space mission theme, to align with that sort of white-knuckled, exhilarating feeling that 138 BPM Euphoric Trance can give you; one is a guy who has since become a great friend of mine in the UK named Leigh Apted a.k.a. “DJ Discovery”, taking his DJ name after the Space Shuttle Discovery, and with a huge passion for the NASA Space Shuttle program and the cosmos in general, and another really nice guy named Sonny from Canada who called himself “DJ Spaceman”. Both Leigh and Sonny were also a huge Trance fans and really liked the Vapour Trail mix, which meant a lot to me at the time. We all abruptly learned some terribly sad news after a time that Sonny had passed away at a relatively early age from cancer, and none of us ever even knew he was sick, he never mentioned that to us. I find that to be remarkably selfless and brave. So anyway, I would like to dedicate this mix to Sonny and Leigh, two great guys and Trance fans. Now when I listen to this music I think back to those days, and I can almost see DJ Spaceman’s vapour trail from his final flight, shimmering across the sky................

On Saturday, August 16, 2014, I was honored to be one of the opening DJ’s for 1/3rd of the SUSPECT 44 crew, Luke Shipstad, at Foundation Nightclub in Seattle, along with my good DJ buddies Gravity Lift and Johnny Monsoon. I was particularly excited for this show because I have been a big fan of Suspect 44 for the past several years, ever since the launch of their hit single, “Japanese School Girls”, which is one of my favorite Prog House tracks ever. The energy at the club that night was off the charts, Suspect 44 truly threw down an unbelievable set, and I knew that I had a lot of friends and acquentances showing up for my set so I made sure to put many hours of time and preparation into making this set something special (well…I think so anyway..haha) with some brand new and extremely euphoric progressive tracks, a little smidgen of electro thrown in for a pick-me-up in the middle, and kicked off with a most dreamy, soothing techno track that I just loved by The Japanese Popstars. It was definitely a night I will never forget, and I hope that you enjoy the set as much as I loved spinning it! Cheers! -Mark
