On Saturday, June 24 2000, nearly 30,000 ravers gathered for the fifth annual Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Southern California. The event clocked in at 13 hours and showcased talent including DJ Dan, Dieselboy, Sandra Collins, Omar Santana, Christopher Lawrence and BT. The sweaty proceedings infiltrated tents that featured hardcore, house, techno and drum & bass, but it was the trance tent that bulged with frenetic energy. Keeping pace was DJ Doran who delivered a high-powered incendiary set. Doran turns up and blasts off with the first track “Tulare” and from there it’s a continuous trance mix sure to keep the bodies pumping, the glow sticks twirling and the faces smiling. Other stand-outs include the pounding bass beat on D&A’s “Crystal” and Manhattan’s “Your Spirit”, which layers female vocal vibrations within the obligatory dramatic crescendo, prompting all to throw their arms in the air and reach for the sky. Trance mixes like Doran’s are a standard ingredient for raves, clubs and parties, but are also perfect for any activities which require endurance and adrenalin such as workouts and road trips and should be revered not just as a representation of PLUR (Peace, Love, Unity, Respect), but for being a mental antidote for the over stimulated brainwaves of our attention deficit society. As evidence, Doran’s pulsating vibe never falters and boosts your spirit with its endless energy. If you’re a fan of Paul Oakenfold, Sasha & Digweed and Christopher Lawrence, then the choice is EZ; EDC is the CD for you.
