June 2012 - The Force Factor 052
This month, with a holiday and the big celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee here in the UK I haven’t been able to spend the usual time on my favourite pastime - choosing & buying new trance tracks! - so I’ve had a dig around and chosen some belters from a year or 2 ago which I love but haven’t heard in a while. Hope you enjoy! 01. Thomas Bronzwaer - Galaxyrise 02. Bryn...
May 2012 - The Force Factor 051
A quality-packed Force Factor this month including one of my favourite tracks at the moment - Indecent Noise’s insane remix of Forbidden City by Marc Simz which is just exploding with retro-sounding energy.

February 2012 - The Force Factor 48
Tech trance time! February’s Factor gets the rave juices flowing but - for this episode - doesn’t stray over into the territory of hard dance… this is 100% gritty trance from the likes of Askew, Patterson etc (my favourite kind!). Hope you agree! 01. Monada - Turbulence 02. Lee Miller - Deception (Oliver Brooks remix) 03. Running Man - Sorrow (Trance Arts remix) 04. Indecent...

Lots of bootlegs/remixes/mashups in this one, so if you like that sort of thing you’re in for a treat!

November 2011 - The Force Factor 45
A massive guestmix from up & coming producer Lee Miller follows some rather large new tunes from the likes of Will Atkinson with Breath It and Brian Cameron with Engage, two of my fave tracks at the moment. Plus (by complete coincidence) another great remix of Paramore’s Crush, this time with Costa Pantazis on mix duties. 01. Luke Terry - Counting Stars (99 Returning Remix) 02. Will...

September 2011 - The Force Factor 43
Great new releases from some of the big guns of trance make it a storming September! Plus on the harder side, Costa Pantazis/Ashley Waters and April manage to keep their full-throttle sound melodic & uplifting - love it. But Indecent Noise’s “Grim Reaper” has to be my favourite track for bloody months - incredible. As the Aussies like to say… banging like a dunny door...
Do Not Download...!
This is a set called ‘End of Integrity 2’. It’s similar to a mix I made last year (called, guess what… End of Integrity), but with a bit of extra integrity squeezed painfully out of it. Warning: If you are hoping for the latest Force Factor, you will be deeply disappointed. That will follow in a few days. In the meantime… do not download this MP3. You have been...
August 2011 - The Force Factor 42
So as you probably know by now I love the old skool sounds and August’s mix is chock-full of them! A new remix of the 1997 Lustral classic ‘Everytime’ by Kipster, Amen UK’s ‘Passion’ from 1995 remixed by Neon Lights, plus the old-skool flavour that runs through Rob O.T.T’s This is the Time.

Thanks to all you folks on Facebook for all your birthday messages this month! Enjoy the mix! 01 Nick Callaghan &...
May 2011 - The Force Factor 39
This month’s mix is a big bag of tunage fresh from the large trance department, energetic as ever, but without much hard trance due to a lack of good quality new hard trance tunes when I recorded it earlier this month. Probably some of you will be pleased with that while others will miss the hard stuff, so I’ll be interested to hear your opinions! 01 Martin Libsen - Capsule 02 Sied...
April 2011 - The Force Factor 38
Podcast only extended mix! The excellent remix of ‘Ayla’ in this month’s set came out too late for the Afterhours set but it’s included here as a special treat for you podcast subscribers :) Other highlights include a great new version of the classic Cygnus X - Superstring, plus a short burst of Felix’s “Don’t you want me” dropped in briefly...
