The good news is that I have a brand new trance set available for download.
October 22, 2012. EVE Records Tribute set + interview
A little while ago Pearsall asked me to do a guest mix for his blog Sonic Rampage (http://sonicrampage.org). Since that blog is mostly about oldschool techno/trance/etc I decided to finally make my little tribute mix for one of my all time favorite labels: EVE Recordings
The set features some proper trance from around 1996-1998 with a good dose of 303's in them. All tracks are basically made by one guy: Pablo Gargano. He made some absolute killer trance tracks back in the day so if you haven't heard about him it's well worth a listen.
Along with the mix there's also an interview with me which you can check out here:
August 23, 2012. Special Trance Set!
On August 19th I had a special set featured as a guest set on the Uplifting Seasons Radio Show hosted by Turkish trance duo Ilgaz & Berk
I was asked to make a set with some of my favorite tracks so I decided to mix it completely on vinyl and focus on the years from 2000 and forward. After digging through my vinyl collection I came up with this rather special mix you can check out below. It's full of nostalgia for me so I hope you enjoy it too :)
Grab it here

November 05, 2010. Hard Trance Gig Cancelled
The promoters have cancelled the event 'Intense Supercharged' that was suppose to take place tonight in Helsingborg Sweden. So obviously I will not be spinning there tonight. The manner in which the promoters handled this has been very unprofessional. Seemingly hyping up nr of tickets sold to increase pre-sale and at the same time not informing anyone that their top billing pulled out due to them not being able to fullfill the contractual agreement. They now refuse any refunds for the presale tickets sold, claiming the party has just been postponed and will be held at a later date. This will probably not happen. Further more they've closed the wall in the facebook event page since they can't handle the negative feedback pouring in.
Ah well, another day in the club scene...
November 02, 2010. Hard Trance Gig in Sweden and 2 new progressive sets

Decided to create a little radio station with all these sets we've put online over the year. From 1997 up until today!. After a bit of work that radio station went live this past weekend. It features two streams, one for all our trance sets and on for all our hard trance sets.

Hard Trance Channel
The streams are in 192kbps MP3 and they are online 24/7. There's still more to add to each channel but for now there's at least 50 hours on each in random rotation.
Hope you enjoy! :)
August 26, 2008. Assorted Trance Volume 20
Finally I made a new proper trance mix! The last one was made in April 2007 so it's about time I made another one. I haven't been feeling the euphoric trance as much as I used to as I think it sounds too generic these days but every now and then there pop up some tracks that strik

May 07, 2008. Essential Guide To Hardfloor Volume 01
For my own amusement I made a little mix with my favorite Hardfloor tracks from the early to mid 90s.
For those that don't know Hardfloor is a German duo consisting of Oliver Bondzio and Ramon Zenker. Together they spearheaded the acid trance/techno/house sound of the early 90s and then got a lot of flak for their somewhat formulaic remixes in the mid 90s.
At the time I thought everything Hardfloor did was gold and the tracks I chose to use in the mix are still very dear to me.
You can catch the mix on DI.fm's Oldschool Electronica Channel today at 3:30 pm US EST (8:30pm GMT/ 21:30 CET) right after Deadly Groove's Building Blocks
April 01, 2008. Assorted Tech Trance Vol. 1
Nope it's not a April's Fool Joke. It's a brand new mix (and series) from me. For the first time I decided to make a mix featuring the kind of tech trance I'm enjoying at the moment.
Might be a bit different from regular tech trance these days (some tracks are more techno than anything) but it has great energy. Hope you enjoy! :)
February 19, 2008. Insomnia Part 2!
Don't miss the brand new episode of Insomnia with me and Polheredia from Argentina!

December 12, 2007. Johan Nilsson's set from the DI.fm 8th Birthday Special available for download!
We ran a massive special event on DI.fm's Progressive channel to celebrate the fact that the station now is 8 years old. Over 20 of the hosts on the progressive participated with an exclusive mix which we ran across 8th and 9th of December.
Of course I had to do a little something as well and the result can now be downloaded from the links on the right. It's progressive though so don't expect any hard energetic beats in 145bpm ;)
Big thanks to LRCN fordoing a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure it all came together, all the hosts who participated and of course all of you who tuned in!

I can't remember when I made the last progressive mix so it was quite fun to go back to that kind of style. The set features some of the progressive trance/house tracks I've been enjoying casually the past 6 months or so. So don't expect it to be all cutting edge and weird and stuff :)

Since it's no longer feasible for me to do the Escape Velocity show on a monthly basis I decided to re-surrect this old but popular series. I know a lot of you out there will be happy to hear this. New sets will not be available on a monthly basis but the sets will be longer and hopefully ensure a higher quality of track selection :)
Expect 75 minutes of banging Hard Trance with some proper Acid Techno thrown in for good measure. Mauguzun, Ultraform, Louk, JTB, DDR/ANT are just some of the names you'll be hearing brand new tracks from on this set. Be sure not to miss it!
January 15 , 2007. Escape Velocity 17 available!
Ok, so finally the latest installement of the Escape Velocity is available to download. This particular set follows the more melodic side of things that could be heard on Escape Velocity 16.

December 08 , 2006. Mail up again, forum still down. Party in Brisbane in January
All mails are up and running since a week or so. Forum stil ldown though. Need to figure out how to upload the back up to the new database. I'm new to all of this so please bare with me :p
In other news, I got my first Australian gig! On January 27 I'll be spinning at Twisted @ The Shamrock in Brisbane. Together with Tara Reynolds of Tidy & Masif. Click here and here to see flyer. Really looking forward to it! :D
November 19 , 2006. Forum/mail down temporarily + I'm moving to Australia
Ok, so I recently switched hosts. Steve (aka Sinereth) who have helped me since day one almost with hosting my site ran into some troubles with his box. We decided a move to a dedicated host would be the best for the time being. So now I'm in the capable hands of ClickOnHosting! However, at this moment this means the forum and my mail is down temporarily but will be back up again as soon as possible.
I want to thanks Steve for the massive help I've recieved the past couple of years when it comes to web hosting and a bunch of other stuff. It has truly been invaluable!
And I also want to thanks ClickOnHosting for helping me out in this time of need and putting up with all my newbie questions :)
And now to the big news. I'm moving to Sydney, Australia for the next 12 months starting this wednesday. Should be interesting as I've never been there before :)
So for all you Aussies that visit this site, I'm already in talks with some promoters about possible gigs. First up would be Brisbane in January if everything works out!
Anyways, the neew design for this we bsite will be finnished soon now that we have moved to a new host. Once that is up I'll start updating here on regular basis :)
September 30 , 2006. Back from New York and starting to produce!
After 6 wonderful and eventful months in New York, possible the best city on earth, Charlotte and I have returned back to Sweden. Sweden feels a bit small now so we are looking for another nice foreign city to work and live in for a while. Sydney, we are looking in your direction :)
I've also finally started getting into production, after many years of talking about it. Biggest hurdle has always been getting my head around all the technical aspects but I think I'm slowly started to get a hang of it. There's a long way to go though so I wouldn't expect any release quality material from me in quite some time.
You'll probably be able to hear some samples of my progress in my forum from time to time
August 17 , 2006. Assorted Trance 17 and Escape Velocity 15
Yep, I finally got around to make a new Assorted Trance set. As usual this one is high in energy and I think it progresses really well.
I also managed to a new Escape Velocity set within the same week. That one is available to download direct from this site.
If you are interested in Assorted Trance 17 please contact me either through email or by sending me a pm in the forums.
March 6 , 2006. Time to write something
I recently noticed that my last entry here was made in October 2005. That's over 4 months ago! Have I've been inactive that long?
Well not really. Most of you have followed my regular show on DI.fm's Hard Dance channel Escape Velocity (thanks for all the wonderful feedback!). I also made a new Assorted Trance Mix (Volume 16) and uploaded a live set from a show I did together with Alex MORPH last december. It's mostly my web site that I've been neglecting lately. And that's really all about laziness I'm afraid.
So what's coming up in the near future then. Well, Me and Charlotte are about to do a extended visit to New York City where we will stay for 6 months. We are both very excited about this. We are going up to the US Embassy in Stockholm this week to apply for our visa and as soon as we get that granted we'll head over to New York. Hopefully it will happen by the end of this month. My only regret is that I have turned down several gigs because of this. Hopefully I can find some nice ones in the states once I get there.
My very skilled web designer Aram and I have discussed a revamp of this site for quite a while now and hopefully we'll actually start changing it soon. It really needs an update by now :)
Oh, and don't miss Escape Velocity 13 next week (tuesday 14th) on DI.fm's hard dance channel.
October 20 , 2005. Katrina Relief Event on DI.fm!

October 12 , 2005. Johan back in Turkey! + Escape Velocity 8 postponed
On October 21 I will be back in Turkey to spin at Club Faces in Turkey's capital Ankara. As usual it's Eazt production that is making this happen! Can't wait to meet up with Orcan, the rest of the Eazt crew and all the rest of the nice people I've had the pleasure to het to know during my previous visits :)
Escape Velocity 008 was never aired this past monday due to some delivery mishaps with my records. I couldn't get hold of them until today actually so it was impossible to make a good mix in time. The show will be aired as soon as I get the mix together and find a proper date.
September 8 , 2005. Escape Velocity 7 on DI.fm
To make sure I only use quality tracks on my Escape Velocity show on DI.fm I've decided to make the show run once a month, instead of twice. I just found it too damn difficult to get proper, quality tracks on the harder side of trance to mix the set before the deadline. Having it at once a month will leave me some more time scouting tracks and I hope the show from now on will be longer than the previous 60 minutes. Hopefully also feature some guest every now and then :)
Anyways, next show is this monday (September 12th) on the Hard Dance Channel on DI.fm, starting at 20:00 CET/7pm GMT/2pm EST. Don't miss it! :)
August 5 , 2005. DJ Irish Meets Ultraform - The Iron Suns (Original Mix) + Escape Velocity 6
Christ it's been almost 2 months since my last entry here. Time to get you guys up to speed. The most important part is probably that I've teamed up with young swedish producer Ultraform for the production of the very first track with my name on it :) "The Iron Suns" is a hard trance stomper with scratchy acid sounds and a psy trance melody. The sounds is from the glory days of Hard Trance with fat beats and basslines. Packed with energy and providing a good punch on the dance floor.
If you wanna hear this track then you better tune in to the next episode of Escape Velocity on DI.fm this monday (August 8th). The show starts at 20:00 CET/7pm GMT/2pm EST on the Hard Dance Channel. So don't miss it!
In further news Aram of Lithium design is hard at work redesigning this site fromt the ground up. Since I'm no longer putting up any sets online on the site I felt that the whole concept of this site needs to change if I want to keep you people coming back here :)
Speaking of Aram, some of his work just got accepted into the official gallery at the Xara application home page: Xara Gallery
It appears he submitted some of the work he's been doing for me :)
June 10 , 2005. New Live Show on DI.FM
Today we are trying to do the live show that never worked on May 18th. The technical problems have been resolved and hopefully the show will air without problems this time. The starting time is scheduled as 2pm US Eastern/7pm GMT/20:00 CET on DI.FM's Trance channel
Also don't miss Escape Velocity 004 on DI.FM this monday. Starting at 2pm US Eastern/7pm GMT/20:00 CET on DI.FM's Hard Dance channel
May 16, 2005. Live set on DI.FM and other stuff!
Time to write something here I think. Almost been a month hehe. Well, the biggest news is of course that Nyman has now become a father. If you ever wondered what he's been up to lately, now you can rest assured that he has been anything but inactive :p
We wish both Nyman and his long time fiancé Malin, and of course Wille, the man, the myth, the legend, the very best for the future :D
I'm finally doing a new live set on DI.FM this wednesday, May 18th. It's been a while since my last time so it's definetly love over due :)
Tune in on the trance channel at
4PM US Eastern / 9PM UK / 22:00 Central European Time. Be sure to not miss this! ;)
April 20, 2005. Escape Velocity and The World In The Mix!
So finally my long planned show on DI.FM is taking off! Escape Velocity is my brand new show on DI.FM's Hard Dance Channel (Former Hard Trance & Hard House Channel). It's a 1 hour show, every 2nd and 4th monday of the month and will feature the best high energy music around. Expect som blazing high energy trance, tech-trance and Hard Trance. Nothing below the 142 BPM treshold so be sure to tune in! :D
Starting at 21:00 Central European Time/20:00GMT/3pm US Eastern Time.
I'm also featured in Giorgio Ponticelli's marathon event The World In The Mix 3. Broadcasted on DI.FM on
April 29th, 18.00 CET / Noon US Eastern / 5pm GMT, the show is around 7 hours long and features 15-18 minutes minimixes from 25 different DJs coming from 14 different countries. Everything mixed together by Giorgio Ponticelli himself. Something you definetly don't wan't to miss :)
March 22, 2005. No more downloads!
I'm sorry to say this but from today, you will no longer be able to download any of our mixes from this site.
Some days ago I recieved yet another email from a record label, stating I'm hurting record sales and if I truly respect the artists, I shouldn't make life difficult for them by keeping them getting properly compensated for their efforts. And it's my respect to everyone involved with producing and releasing the great music I've had the pleasure to enjoy throughout the years that I've decided enough is enough. This site will no longer offer any downloadable mixes.
The situation has been rather confusing for me because the artists themselves are usually quite positive about freely distributed mixes on the internet. It's the labels, who usually are the true copyright holders, who don't like it. This, I think, have to do with the fact that artists can make money from the exposure by getting Dj or live gigs. Record companies have only one source of income: record sales. The climate in the music industry today, with sharply delining sales, has become very harsch and the labels are getting a lot more protective about their assets. So everything that might, in theory, cause any harm to their income is considered a threat. I understand that. I really do.
In any case, I have yet to hear any negative comments about my sets from the artists themselves. On the contrary, I've gotten quite a few praises for including their tracks and helping them with exposure. I know that not all artists feel the same about this particular issue but it is basically these positive emails from the artists that have led me to believe it was somewhat ok to do what I did.
Personally, I'm not convinced the sets offered on this site has actually caused any actual harm in record sales but it's hard to prove from either side. Since I don't want to run the risk of allienating myself from the music industry by provoking the very people who run it I've come to the conclusion that the downloads will have to stop.
For the record, I have never made even one cent out of any of my sets throughout the years. Actually, they have cost me at least around 100$US per set since all material in them are bought and paid for legally. I have even turned down people offering compensation for my sets because I have always felt it is wrong to make money off things like this. However, I do acknowledge that this is not of any real relevance in this particular case.
Also, for the record. I haven't been directly threatened by a lawsuit yet so my decision is not based on any fear of legal troubles (even though lawsuites have been hinted at indirectly in one particular case). As I mentioned above, I simply don't want to make any enemies, or if my sets actually hurt record sales, don't want to keep the artists to get the compensation they rightly deserve. The fact that I'm soon about to be fully employed in another part of the music business (more info about this coming soon) lends further weight to my decision.
If you feel like discussing this further there's a thread in our forum dedicated to this here . (Link updated 050323)
However, this doesn't mean I'll be inactive. I will increase my activities in the online world by a new personal show on Di Radio (along side my monthly live set on the very same station), hopefully starting very soon.
And don't forget the live stream of the God's Kitchen Party on Di Radio, featuring Marco V, Paul Thomas and me. Coming straight from Slagthuset (in Malmö, Sweden) this thursday on the 24th of March! :)

March 10, 2005. On vacation!
Tomorrow, friday 11th, me and Charlotte are heading to Paris for a nice vacation. I've never been to Paris before so I'm quite excited. :)
During this time I'll probably not get the chance to check my email or forums as often as I usualy do so please don't be mad for slow replies. We'll be gone until the 20th of March and still I fear it's not enough time to see all of what a city like Paris has to offer. We'll of course do the obvious things, as the Louvre, Eiffel Tower etc, but if you have any tips on good clubs please send me an email irishNO_SPAM@assortedtrance.com (remove NO_SPAM). :)
After that we've got the God's Kitchen Party in Malmö on the 24th, where I'll spin with Marco V and Paul Thomas. Hopefully it will be streamed through Di Radio, video and all :)
Also, a brand new show of my own is in the works at Di Radio! More info about that soon.
March 4, 2005 New sets online!
Yeah, I've should have written this last week but I never got around to it ehem...
