Crystal Clouds 11th Birthday Event

Crystal Clouds celebrates 11 years in trance this year with a huge 4 day event on ETN.FM starting on the 12th of September 2014.

This year Crystal Clouds welcomes Kenji Sekiguchi to kick off the event on Friday the 12th of September at 09:00 with an hour of tracks selected by one of Japans finest DJs. Kenji never ceases to amaze us with his sets or indeed his label Otographic Music – which has provided us with a selection of great artists in the past few years.

Over the course of the following days we see all sorts of amazing trance & progressive DJs taking part in an extravaganza of music including none other than Neptune Project, Arctic Moon, Angel Ace, Ferry Tayle, Colonial One, Dreamy, ReOrder, Fady & Mina, Johan Ekman, Six Senses, Ahmed Romel and many many more.

XXL sets come from the likes of DJ N!ki (3 Hours), Manuel Le Saux (3 Hours), Jamie Bell (3 Hours), Above the Clouds (3 Hours), Tony Sty (3 Hours) and Jerom (4 Hours).

The event comes to a close on Monday the 15th of September with dutch DJ and producer Jerom who continues to wow and amaze us with his honest approach to supporting truly the best elements of trance music.

In January 2014 Crystal Clouds made a brave move onto a new system and reduced its outgoing costs by approximately 40%.

Work is still in progress for the redevelopment of Crystal Clouds – however funding has now become an issue.

In recent months we have failed to hit the required targets to meet the approximate $130 / month running costs.

Most of the donations come in from users who have donated regularly since before we can remember.

This is amazing support from these users – but we need to start raising more funds in order to keep the dream alive.

Crystal Clouds is open to ideas and suggestions from it’s members to improve this situation and encourages comments to be left against this post.

As it stands, the “reserve” of cash that Crystal Clouds built up in 2013 will keep it going until the end of September, but from there it is difficult to say.

For those interested in donating – please use the options here:

Crystal Clouds would like to sincerely thank all those who donated to keep our servers online during June 2014.

The 2014 website currently doesn’t support manual donations nor does it automatically post who has donated (etc).

Both of these features will be implemented over the coming months, but we decided to post manually for now to ensure these members get the thanks they deserve for the financial help they provide us.

If you wish to donate using our VIP Membership page please click here: http://www.crystalclouds.com/vip/

Don’t forget – if you were VIP on the old Crystal Clouds site, you can be upgraded to VIP here as well. Just use the Contact Us link or send EVM a message.

June 2014 Donations:

Remember! It is not just those who donated last month that have helped Crystal Clouds stay online. In the last 10 years we have seen tremendous support from loyal users and DJs alike.

A big thank you goes out to all these people and those who have helped spread the word about Crystal Clouds.

As many are aware, Crystal Clouds is still rebuilding since undergoing major redevelopment earlier this year.

Unfortunately things don’t always happen as quickly as we’d like – but it is coming along nicely.

We have all the tracklists, hundreds (if not thousands) of downloadable mixes and most of our frequent users are back online.

Generally speaking the systems relating to the redevelopment are proving themselves as well.

This is nice because we are now in a position to start building the website back to it’s former glory.

Later this year we will be renovating the look and feel of Crystal Clouds once more to provide much easier access to content across the website.

The primary reason for doing this is the lack of flexibility of the current design.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that the full feature set of the old Crystal Clouds website will return, but it is another step forward in terms of modernising Crystal Clouds.

We appreciate your patience in allowing Crystal Clouds time to flourish in 2014 and hope that we can continue to provide some of the best trance from across the globe for many years to come!

A heads up to fans of the tracklist archive that was one of the main features at the old Crystal Clouds website.

We are currently importing all 50,000 tracklists back into the system!

The import is automated, so we expect some issues – but hopefully the archive will be fully restored in the next few days!

Crystal Clouds is still making progress in all areas since relaunching it’s website in February 2014.

A lot of this work will go unnoticed due to its “background” nature or seemingly small importance.

For this update we wanted to let users know that they can now follow their favourite DJs simply by browsing to their relevant DJ page.

An example is shown below.

http://www.crystalclouds.com/djs/ahmed-romel/

 

2014-03-11 13_23_58-StrokesPlus

 

Here you can quickly access the download archives for Ahmed Romel as well as viewing a list of recent downloads.

Many of the DJs will have links to their relevant social network pages or websites.

Those involved with labels or do production work will also have a list of recent releases. These are only releases which have been posted in the Crystal Clouds release news feed so don’t expect a Discogs type approach with full catalogs etc!

Each page will also include a biography and other useful information such as radioshow times and booking contact information.

Very little news has passed through the Crystal Clouds feed over the last couple of weeks mainly due to the amount of work that even now is still to be completed.

Crystal Clouds is making good progress overall, but appreciate your continued patience in allowing us to get through development tasks and build the functionality we need on the WordPress platform.

For those who haven’t noticed changes to the Crystal Clouds 2014 website that have been made recently, please refer to the brief list below:

  1. Download issues have been resolved for all browser types
  2. Download/Release lists are now formatted nicely (Example here)
  3. DJ/Artist/Show categories are now working (Example here)
  4. Downloads now link to the artist/show lists (Example here)
  5. Subscribe to comments has been added
  6. DJ pages are being revamped to show the latest downloads, releases etc (still a work in progress – example here)
  7. Search results have been vastly improved. They will now look for the search phrase in tracklists and the results are ordered by date descending
  8. Various other general fixes and improvements to the website layout and backend code
  9. Lists can now be sorted by date added, title (etc)

Welcome to the Crystal Clouds 2014 website.

Redesigned using the popular WordPress software, CC 2014 is a fresh approach at handling the trance & progressive music that is loved by it’s owners and members alike.

Previously, the design was a little dated and suffered from a lot of repetition of work for those using it.

Now, the website is on the cutting edge once more with a fantastic responsive theme, new social features and better capability for the future.

Not everything will be working 100% from day 1, so please report any bugs or questions in the forums.

An FAQ section can be found on the following page, which is dedicated to the new website only:
Frequently Asked Questions / Help

For those who missed previous posts, all content – including users, downloads (etc) from the previous website has been lost. It was impossible to port everything across in our free time. We have kept a copy of the data and plan to put it up as an archive in the future – but for now it isn’t possible.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for this but bare in mind that we are now setup for the future on a much more flexible and reliable piece of software.

Heres to another 10 years of Crystal Clouds!
