Vocal Elysium Update

by on Mar.22, 2013, under News

I have been receiving a lot of emails about this show, so I thought I would make a news post. I am officially ending Vocal Elysium as a regularly scheduled radio show. The last one I did was the X-Mas Special, and I had skipped December’s before that. For the last three months I kept consolidating material in hopes I could finally get a new show, but each month I fell short. I have said this before, but I will say it again: there is not enough quality vocal trance releases on a monthly basis for any DJ to think they can put out mixes that are actually of any quality, and certainly not any to meet my standards.

However, don’t fret, the spirit and power of the vocal mixes isn’t lost on me. A high quality vocal mix can motivate me more than any of my other styles, in fact, I pretty much only run to Vocal Elysium mixes. I will be continuing the mixes in some fashion. Whether I return to using the “The Vocals” title or continue with Vocal Elysium, the end result will be the same, and I will still be submitting the mixes to Digitally Imported’s Vocal Trance channel. My feeling is that this will be better for me, and for you, the listener. While there could be any number of months between shows (there was almost 2 years between The Vocals Volume 4 and 5), the upshot is that the quality of the mixes will always be high, and there won’t ever be filler.

Okay, that got wordy, anyways, I will end on a list of some of my favorite Vocal Elysium mixes:

Vocal Elysium 01
Vocal Elysium 02
Vocal Elysium 06
Vocal Elysium 12
Vocal Elysium 18
Vocal Elysium 21
Vocal Elysium Xmas 2012 Special

    hey boss, miss your vocal mixes. you and dj doboy have helped me through countless hours of college studies.

    i understand your reasoning though; you work with what’s available.

    appreciate your mixes!

      2013 was a really bad year for vocal tracks, and I had hoped to put something at the end, but here I am almost a quarter of the way through 2014 still waiting for quality vocals 🙁

      Hopefully I’ll get something out soon though!
