    Hi there Lazarus !

    I just discovered your mixes, and you’re playing exactly the kind of tunes I love ! Only amazing uplifting trance tunes, you have great tastes ! Keep up the great work mate !

    But I have a big problem with This Glorious Chaos – The Rebirth Session Episode 172 and The Rebirth Session Episode 171 ! The MP3s seem to be screwed (at least for me), the other mixes can be played correctly on Winamp or even with VirtualDJ, but these two ones are blocked from around 20:00, after that it either loops or stop playing.. I’m sad because I know I will find great tunes in them..

    Is it possible to send me other links to download them or try to see if there’s something wrong with the links please ? I don’t know if that happened to anyone else but that’s the first time that I can’t play a mix until the end ^^

    Thanks in advance ! Best regards πŸ˜‰

      Hi mate

      You’re the second person to say there’s a problem with the new link so I’ve added the mirror back to the post for RS172 – I’ll also do the same for RS171 now.

      Not sure what the problem is but I’ll investigate πŸ™‚ It could be because there’s so much action going on on the new server as I’ve been uploading continuously for almost 6 days now!

      Hope the mirror links work anyway, let me know if not πŸ™‚

        Thanks for your quick answer and the new links ! I just downloaded RS171 & 172 again and they can now be played correctly until the end, thanks !

        By the way, I use VirtualDJ to cut tunes from mixes, but impossible with all your mixes, there is maybe a protection, CRC or whatever on your mixes but it’s really strange.. I can’t change position in the mixes, it just cut the mix to where I tried to go and go back to the beginning, and so on.. I’ve never seen that lol, maybe a bug in VirtualDJ but with other mixes that’s ok so I don’t know ^^ Have you an idea of what could be the problem ?

  3. August 16, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    I’m not sure really mate, the only thing I can think it might be is that for some reason this computer saves my mp3 files as .MP3 rather than .mp3 which has caused some strange things from time to time on certain players I use, either that or it could be to do with the fact that I record all my mixes using Magix version 1 (not sure how old this is, about 8 years maybe, I think its on about version 13 now) which is very old and perhaps there was something about the encoding of mp3s that was different back then that doesn’t agree with modern software.

    The link should all hopefully be working now though, I’ve re-uploaded all the problematic files and fingers crossed it should sort the problems!

    And thanks for dropping by my site πŸ˜€

    Exellent tunes, bro, totally agree with Wohlraj above, very inspirational tracks. How do I download anything from here? Thanks again for doing a great job. I found out about you from Kudo’s

    • September 8, 2009 at 8:16 am

      Thanks mate! All the entries on this site have download links attached, just click on or Right Click/Save as them and that should do the trick πŸ™‚ On the top right of the page are all the different categories of show I do πŸ™‚

    Nice site Laz, your mixes have been keeping my Ipod busy for the past 4 years or so!

    I’ve just been downloading your early demo mixes to complete my collection but the links for “Lost In Trancelation” and “Leave It All Behind” dont seem to be working.

    If you could sort that out when you get a chance it would be much appreciated.

    Keep up the good work fella.


  9. October 19, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    Thanks mate! I’ll sort those links out shortly, check back in a day or two and they should be ok πŸ™‚

    There are still a few mixes to add yet by the way, I just need to get around to hosting them etc πŸ˜€ One of them’s an 11 hour set from a house party…

    Glad you like the site anyway, nice to see you πŸ˜€

  10. October 19, 2009 at 9:04 pm

    In fact…they’re both working now mate! It was an error in the link text, my bad πŸ™‚ Let me know if you happen upon any more πŸ˜€

    Hi Lazarus,

    I’m really enjoying your Rebirth Sessions / End of year mixes!
    The music selection an journey through the tunes is amazing and I constantly have your mixes on my Mp3 player.

    When are you releasing the 2009 yearmix?



    • November 12, 2009 at 4:20 pm

      Thanks Adam, much appreciated πŸ˜€ Glad you’re enjoying the tunes!

      Haven’t really thought about my 2009 yearmix yet but it will probably be due out at some point during the final week of the year, depending on how festively intoxicated I get during that week! πŸ˜€

    Hello Lazarus, I have been searching the whole net for the name of this amazing track I heard a while back on “The Enhanced Recordings Show August 2006” mixed by Will Holland.

    Any way to get the complete BACK FROM THE DEAD, RISE ABOVE and REBIRTH SESSION mp3s on DVD’s?

    I would gladly pay to get them this way as it is a pain to download each one and some links don’t work. Please email me if possible.

    Great track selections, keep up the great work.

    • July 31, 2010 at 2:23 am

      No chance at all I’m afraid mate, I don’t have a DVD burner 😦 I can re-upload any dead links though just let me know which ones πŸ™‚

    Hi Lazarus,

    been listening to some slightly older Rebirth Sessions lately and came across episode 172. I was hoping you’d be able to reveal the identity of mystery track #2, from Digital Society Recordings (00:06:24-00:11:25). It’s a lovely tune and I’d like to track down the original for purchase.

    Thanks mate. Keep the dream alive!


    • December 22, 2010 at 5:00 pm

      Thanks mate – I still can’t say a lot about that one unfortunately. I don’t think it’s coming out on DS-R any more but I’m hoping we may get it for Defcon in 2011 with some remixes πŸ˜‰ It’s a glorious track though I agree πŸ˜€

  23. December 31, 2010 at 2:46 pm


    Where do i start?? HAMMER SETS hands-down, what a treat it is to fly away with your sets!
    From the remixes and mash-ups to massive build ups and break downs…if only the new generation where intelligent enough to understand what they here nowdays at shows is nothing but commercial elevator muzack !

    Keep doing what your doing…and wish you a fantastic new year..hope to fly u out here to vancouver soon…it will happen my friend:)

    Love & respect

    There’s a storming track in your Rise Above 069 mix… when I went to check out the name it still has no ID.

    Do you have any idea what its called now?

    Its the song after Rapha The Second Sun

    Cheers mate

    • February 10, 2011 at 4:56 pm

      Ah yes I can’t say anything about that one I’m afraid mate, it’s not a Defcon track, that one is just a track by a friend πŸ™‚ At the moment we don’t know what’s happening with it, whether it’s going to labels or just going to be an album track, so in the meantime I’m respecting their request for anonymity πŸ˜‰ Glad you like it though mate, I do too!

    • May 21, 2011 at 8:39 pm

      We are doing a forthcoming release series called “Defcon Reinvented” which will include various new remixes of previously released Defcon stuff – I will find out about these remixes and if they fit the bill then we may put them on one of these releases in future πŸ™‚

    Hi Lazarus,
    I’m brazilian DJ and I always like to hear your sets, especially “The rebird session episodes…”
    Since I first heard this track, I looked in stores, but without success. I would like to know how I can purchase the track “Lange vs Gareth Emery – Another You, Another Me (Med rework)”, present in set “Rise Above 100”

    Thank you,

    • October 29, 2012 at 9:28 pm

      Hi mate

      It’ll never be available to buy I’m afraid – it’s just something Med did quickly one time as an experiment. But he hates it and doesn’t even like me playing it so unfortunately it’ll probably never see the light of day, sorry πŸ˜‰

    Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic job!

    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the
    layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you
    modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to
    see a great blog like this one these days.
