Welcome everyone to my very first (and possibly last!) blog.
For those that do not know me I’m Steve Callaghan and I’m a DJ/Producer from Manchester in the UK.
‘Euphoria: Rediscovering The Higher State’ is an online account of how I went about planning and producing my final project for university which was based around reverse engineering the original Euphoria compilation from 1999 to create a mock ‘10th Anniversary Edition’.
Over 2 years in the making and consisting of over 50 blog posts and a brand new completely remixed and reprogrammed 2 CD DJ mix, this project is easily the most ambitious and personal undertaking of my career so far, combining my skills and passion for the dance music industry with my nostalgia and affection for the Euphoria series and the trance scene in general.
You can access the mix itself by going over to:
Regardless of your musical inclination or your knowledge of production, I feel there is something for everyone within these pages and I truly hope you enjoy taking this journey as much as I did.
You can access the various chapters and categories by using the search bar and sidebar, and you can get back to the main page by hitting the ‘blog’ tab at any time.
Enjoy rediscovering your higher state…
