Color Flash

Helioscope started as a personal project of mine about creating extended DJ sets for workout and travel. I came up with the name in no relation to the Vessels album, but rather as a word that sounds nice and whose components are both related to the concept: ‘helio’, the sun, which was a recurring theme in titles I selected, and ‘scope’ as a means for showcasing a broad spectrum of music. That was around 2009, but I only stumbled upon Mixcloud as a platform for sharing them with a greater audience in September 2011.

Back in the days and even before I started mixing, I had listened a lot to Trance Around the World and A State of Trance. I had a nice folder of my favorite music from which the majority of this celebratory set comes from. Most of it is from between 2005 and 2012 and I did the selection based on what still sounded fresh up to this day, but there’s also this aspect of colorfulness and playfulness in there, hence the title. I don’t regret having 50% Anjuna in there, since that was by far the best label out there during these years.

This is certainly not the end of this journey. Thank you all for your continued support! I wouldn’t have made it this far without you.
