Uplifting Only is the world's leading radio show for the orchestral uplifting trance genre, and also focuses on emotional uplifting trance, vocal uplifting trance, and a little orchestral and chillout music, with Ori Uplift on Safehouse Radio every Saturday from 4pm.
To quote iTunes commenters, Uplifting Only is "nonstop mixes by the best source for uplifting trance music. Perfect for long travels, tasks, homework, or to just jam out", and "Some of the best music out there. All the tracks are just beautiful."
It is the definitive show for orchestral uplifting trance the way Armin's A State of Trance intends itself for trance and progressive. Like ASOT, UpOnly includes weekly fan votes for favorite tracks and tunes of the year, a large number of exclusive world premieres every week, and exclusive recorded voiceovers from the artists whose tracks are premiered that week.
Orchestral uplifting trance is a genre of music that is both euphoric and peaceful, energizing and cinematic. It fuses trance and symphonic music by taking the genre of uplifting trance and having the breakdowns be like emotional/epic orchestral or film music. It also features trance melodies that are more epic, emotional, or euphoric than other uplifting trance.
Uplifting Only was rated the #8 trance radioshow/podcast in the 2014 Trance Podium Awards, and Trance Hub rated it one of the top 5 trance shows for working out (and the top show for yoga & pilates).
UpOnly is the flagship show for Abora Recordings, the world's top label for orchestral uplifting trance and emotional uplifting trance and the home of 11 sublabels.
On the first show of the month, UpOnly plays much vocal uplifting trance. It plays all-instrumental uplifting trance the rest of the month, except for guest mixes or special episodes, which can also have vocal trance.
Two mixcompilations based on the show and its voting reached the #1 spots on the Beatport genre charts for releases, and five have reached the top 5 on the charts.
DJ Syanide joins Safehouse Radio on the 2nd Friday of every month from 7pm. Expect all styles of Hard Dance music including Hard House, NRG, Hard Trance, German Trance, Hard Style, with regular guest DJ's.
Syanide has been a bedroom DJ since 1996 (how time flies!). He started off with belt drives, mixing Gabba. But when he went to the Country Club, Bournemouth's legendary hard dance venue, he was soon converted to anything hard (hard trance and hard house mostly).
He converted to CDJ's several years ago (still got his direct drive decks though), where he have improved his mixing by leaps and bounds. He's really starting to enjoy mixing again, and music in ge
Syanide also plays on Keeping Hard House Alive, every 1st and 3rd friday from 2pm and GlobalHardHouse, every 4th tuesday from 8pm.
DJ Remnis show delivers the first hour of pure vinyl classics we love along with guest mixes from trance, hard trance and techno DJ's in the second hour. Mixing up the old with the new, we go Beyond Reminiscing every 4th Friday from 7pm on Safehouse Radio.
Remnis started DJing in 2009, learning himself to play on a controller and laptop. As he discovered more and more old music, he realised that he had to get records to be able to play his favourite music. In 2011, he started collecting vinyls and he spent hours upon hours teaching himself to mix with vinyl.
In mid-2011, Remnis was invited to get a weekly residency at the FearFM hard stream, specialised in early hardstyle and hard trance. After about one and a half year, the radio station quit. In the years after FearFM, he had lots of time to improve his mixing. It would be until 2015 until he would have a regular radio show again.
2015 saw the founding of the BIT - Back in Time group, a group of DJs passionate about the roots of hardstyle. Focussing on the era of 2000 - 2010, this group has a weekly radio show at rhr.fm. Every week, one of the 12 DJs makes a mix. Every few months, the group presents a liveshow, gathering in a studio in the south of the Netherlands. Furthermore, the group does BIT showcases at gigs every now and then. Remnis has played at a few of these showcases around the Netherlands. Other than these showcases, he played at some local gigs in and around Utrecht, the Netherlands.
In September 2016, Remnis started his very own monthly radio show on Safehouseradio. ‘Beyond Reminiscing’ gave him the opportunity to really do what he wanted, without musical boundaries. The show includes hard trance, techno, acid, trance and more.
Around 2011, Remnis started looking into producing his own music. In 2016, he joined Nostic in the studio and they started a collab track, The Project. Having almost finished it, it will only be a matter of time before it is released.
Nowadays, his main focus is on hard trance, be it old or new. His most beloved style is the German hard trance from labels like Chaos Records, Overdose, Pulse and Tracid Traxxx, from around 2001. Other genres Remnis loves and often plays are techno, trance, acid, early rave, Chicago house and early hardstyle.
