Changing Seasons – The Rebirth Session Episode 021 (3rd December 2004)

This was one of my favourite early demo mixes, let down slightly by a small sound issue during Synthetica. You might notice a few similar sound issues during some of the shows around this time – the blame lay with the stylus on one of my old Omnitronic DD2250’s, and the bad connection it had with the needle.

I owe the title to this one from my DJing inspiration and hero Paul Oakenfold. Back in the mid-nineties when no-one really liked trance that much or knew what it was, Oakey had started up two labels that had a big influence on me – Perfecto and Perfecto Fluoro.

Similar to my buying up of everything O’Callaghan, Tate, da Brain, MORPH etc, back then I had similar habits and went through an Oakenfold phase back then. This title refers to his more commerical and very successful chart project called Grace – as in “Not Over Yet”, “Skin On Skin/Orange”, or in this instance, “Down To Earth”.

The title for this demo comes from the chorus of Down To Earth – it’s also the name of one of my old old old old old mixes from the days before I could actually mix! If memory serves the line goes something like:

Changing the seasons and changing your way
You won’t last forever just live for today

Incidentally I believe that this is the only time in all my mixes that I ever played a Sander van Doorn track (his 4 Strings remix) during his brief soiree into trance 😉
