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

For the past five years my good buddy, Chris Paape, has thrown this epic summer Cabana Party at the end of July overlooking the scenic Lake Sammamish with stacks of club-quality speakers, subwoofers, and DJ gear, and many of the better-known local Seattle DJ’s have been invited to spin sets over the past several years, so it’s a full day of EPIC tunes in the sun, totally awesome. This party has basically become a legend over the years, and this year a whopping 15 DJ’s spun sets throughout the day including Chris Paape, Jason LeMaitre, Andrew Cox, Travis Colvin, Chris Herrera, Kai Larrabee, AKU, Pavel Glukhov, Omar B, to name a few, and I was honored to have been invited to spin a 40-minute set from 6-6:40 PM, so I made sure to put together a lively and euphoric set with some of my favorite tracks of the summer to get people in the mood to dance. It was such a fun and memorable experience, and sadly Chris is selling his condo on the lake so this was perhaps the last of the Lake SAMM Cabana Parties of its type, but it was so much fun while it lasted and I am glad I was able to take part in it. I hope that you enjoy the set! -Mark

On Saturday, April 19, 2014, I was honored to be one of the opening DJ’s, along with my friends Derrick Gennrich, and Jordan Goff a.k.a. Gravity Lift, for Russian DJ/Producer superstar, BOBINA, for Progression Saturdays at Foundation Nightclub, Seattle. It was such an incredibly fun show and the people who showed up in the audience were amazing and totally into the music which made it so incredible to play at. Bobina is a true showman, and also I have been a fan of his “Russia Goes Clubbing” podcast ( for many years before I ever thought I would be DJ’ing in clubs myself, so it was sort of a meaningful, “full circle” thing for me. I loved every track on the mix, one of those that just sort of fell together perfectly – it’s got some hard hitting beats and occasional interludes of incredibly euphoric and dreamy, epic breakdowns, which was my intent to honor one of my Trance idols, Bobina. I hope you enjoy it as well. Cheers! Mark a.k.a. DJ Gotek.

On Saturday, November 11th, 2013, I was honored to be one of the opening DJ’s, along with my buddies AUDIOH and DARRIUS, for the legendary DJ/Producer GEORGE ACOSTA for USC Events’ Progression Saturdays show at Foundation Nightclub, Seattle. This was a super memorable night for me, first off because I had been a George Acosta fan for years and had seen him spin years before I ever thought I would be DJ’ing, and to be able to open for George and actually meet him was a huge honor and thrill, plus it was my first 10-11pm set at Foundation so I got to crank up the intensity a notch, which was super fun, and lastly I had a bunch of friends show up to check out my set, so it was an awesome night across the boards. The club was packed and full of so much positive energy and my set turned out really on the Trancey side with some extremely euphoric and uplifting sounds and I really loved all the tracks that I got to play that night.. I hope that you do to – Cheers!! -Mark

On Saturday, May 31st, I was honored to be on the opening DJ line-up for DJ ZOXY’s MISSION TRANCE show featuring the incredible, internationally acclaimed DJ/Producer, MAX GRAHAM, as the headliner at the Fez Ballroom in Portland, OR. This was a particularly amazing experience for me because A.) I got to pick Max Graham up at the airport for starters, which was certainly a unique experience and amazing opportunity for me to get to spend some time with this guy and hear his perspectives on the EDM industry, Trance, and get to know him a little bit, which was pretty awesome I must say, super cool guy, and B.) my opening 30-45 minute set that I was expecting to play turned into a 90-minute, 17 track monster set that I was so not expecting to be able to play, and by the time I was done the crowd was PACKED, the line outside was huge, and I got to hand off to Max himself. So it pretty much was a dream DJ night that I will never forget!! This set starts off with some smooth kind of ambient deep housy tracks and then moves into some nice progressive house and a little progressive trance. Definitely the highlight for me that night was to be able to spin two tracks from an up-and-coming, Uber-talented young producer from Serbia, Odej Haj, who calls himself Odison. Absolutely was so excited to play two of his tracks that he was nice enough to send to me before they were released, GREAT stuff!! Better keep an eye on this kid, he’s shaping up to be the next Audien.. Other than that, pretty much love every track on this mix, and I hope you do too. Cheers!! -Mark
