Millaway – Empty Audience (Christian Rusch Remix)


The remixes package for Millway’s debut EP with FSOS Records is out today on its Beatport exclusive, and with it my remix of his “Empty Audience”. It’s the first time in quite a while that I’ve made trance this fairly straight-forward. As the melody in the original is so vital to the experience, I didn’t want to change it at all. Instead I tweaked some more energetic synth layers and laced them with a simple and warm, feel-good, plucky arp, and upped the tempo. So, after quite a while of slower and just generally non-dance-oriented tunes from, here (finally, according to some) is a 138 bpm driving trancer with a tougher edge. Let me know what you think!


Markus Schulz support in Sunrise Set


So it seems Markus Schulz really REALLY likes my chillout remix of “Masters & Nickson featuring Justine Suissa – Out There” as he, yet again out of the blue, featured it in one of his special mixes; this time in his 2013 Sunrise Set. So, if you’ve got two hours to fill with great music, why not check it out and await the grande finale. Peace and love!

Lifted from the soundcloud page: “It is one of the most anticipated Global DJ Broadcast episodes every year, and for many a highlight of the summer (no pressure guys!), where I dedicate myself to crafting a special 2 hour mix containing some of the most beautiful melodies and early morning moments that have graced the beaches and shores of Ibiza and beyond – the Sunrise Set.”


Daniel B & Seven – Altai (Christian Rusch Remix)


Today I have a new remix out on Beatport. Once the two week Beatport Exclusive has run its course, it will also be available in all major download stores. The original is a lush uplifter, so I decided I wanted to go it a slightly different route and set out to create a deeper, more bouncey number, with more silky textures and progressive vibes to bring out the melodies and accentuate the vocal samples. Hope you like it!


Waterdrops ready for release!


DJ & Producer Toonpaz joins Alter Ego with this stunning trance production entitled Waterdrops. With its enchanting melody and uplifting grooves this is quite simply a beautiful peace of music.

On remix duty first is Christian Rusch who has given his remix a deeper groove overall but it works extremely well here. Still keeping the stunning melody and uplifting elements of the original this is a worthy alternative.

Go HERE for more info.

Release date is May 5th, 2008.

March update


Having returned from my trip to Southeast Asia, I have yet again refocused my efforts on music and have since finished two tracks for the album, my Christian Rusch Remix of Perpetual featuring Fisher‘s “Innocent”, as well near finished my Christian Rusch Remix of a tune by Michael Splint featuring Sasja, a new take on an old trancey breaks tune I did with Özgür Can back in 2003, and two new more full-on trance singles. Moreover, Steve “Thrillseekers” Helstrip was in town this past week – playing for Monday Bar at GK – and club premiéred the “Christian Rusch Club Mix” of my “Then Came The Rain”, prompting much appreciative crowd reactions.
