Although I have not uploaded any music in over a year, I have been working on 2  Ableton sets.  This is one I finished in September of 2014 called Ascendance.  For those who have been following me for a while, you will recognize the style immediately.  For those who dont, I use Ableton Live and over 30 channels to create whats truly an original electronic music experience.  Parts of over 70 tracks and countless home made riffs, drums, basslines andeffects went into this one as usual.  In a few days I will be uploading my latest work called Elevate which I just finished this month.  Until then I hope you can enjoy this as hundreds of hours went into it trying to create a seamless experience that will stand the test of time.  I thank everyone for all the great feedback I have recieved in the past and look forward to hearing what you all think of this.

I cant say thank you enuff. i really thought you fell off the planet. between randall and you i basically use this site, or in past used it for was your guys mixes and sets. nobody even comes close on progressive sets then you. listen to anybody's mixes and the big boys cant hold a candle to these. this set is what polish would sound like if it was not waxing a car. your mixes cannot be touched and you have to keep making them and not going silent anymore. the world needs these mixes, and this is proof of the master in PROG...thanks again for coming back and doing this mix.

First off we will not be doing a play by play here, but more of a cursor to what ascendance does to the listener, from the absolute intro here that dehydr8ed is known for, taking apart so many segments from multiple entity's to try to prepare the listener and the journey, it kind of makes sense to make or get the ears ready for an onslaught of sounds and manipulations, the one thing i must say is that do listeners or people tuning in actually grasp that what is going on is not tracks, its not the ok here is a good few samples, oh this is good mixing here of the tracks, THE THING IS, this is musical chaos of the utmost degree, that not only does the maker of this mix have the ears and the knowledge base of the musical selection, but to be able to literally take the highest quality tracks and completely dismantle and break them down into pieces, and like a puzzle piece and splice them into a basically original track, or a high degree remix, and then add in your own kick drums, and musical original pieces, to form what is being heard...........IN LEHMANS TERMS......TAKE MUSIC AND F--- IT SIDEWAYS TO CREATE THE MOST high LEVEL PROGRESSIVE TECHNO SOUNDS THE genres can even imagine........this mix as the rest of dehydr8ed's mixes is what today's technology in Ableton and in what is at the fingertips of any user actually when i think about it, BUT IN THIS CASE...dehydr8ed has mastered this technology beyond anybody i have personally heard using it...i have listened to youtubes of people using ableton, i have watched videos, and thought i had seen some damn good showings of what is possible........I said this on a past mix, ableton needs to be paying big dollars to you to sponsor there product, people need to understand what they are listening to is not a track playing that sounds good, I have personally seen with my own eyes at your station the 30-50 channels of PURE NASTINESS, playing at one time............it almost makes you laugh because it does not make sense first of all, but then you laugh because its beyond layed out professionally and done in perfect harmony to what the ORIGINAL IMAGINATION wanted to make, when you see 14 tracks peeled apart with another 14 pieces of original music put on top its enough to make you walk away........shaking your head.......i know that you are sitting on elevate, which is the next mix to go up, and people have no grasp of wht is in that either........all i can say is that for what genre you want to label this leaning heavy prog.......nothing even comes close to what is getting put down......i still say I wish i could see diggers face if he took the time to hear your mixes.......from your first to this mix, they prove that music itself is endless in what can be created.......and these mixes are proof, that once these mixes are heard with are human minds.......OUR MENTAL STATES ARE LEFT 100 PERCENT DEHYDR8ED........THE PROGRESSIVE WORLD HAS NO CANDLE TO HOLD TO THESE MIXES....PERIOD...............................................................................NOW ITS TIME TO ELEVATE..........UPLOAD IT NOW.....................

Been listening to this mix off and on at work and at home. Already liked + favored so what more could I say that hasn't been said already? Perhaps I'll just point out one of my favourite points in the entire mix. At around 40:35 with the beat and the soundscapes just cruising along, there's a transition in the tempo. Then suddenly here comes the funky break..."boom bap style". Not to be outdone; at 43:05 shortly after the pace kicks up to a bouncy "jump up beat" almost turning tribal. At 45:33, there's another brief transition and we're back in pure techno mode. All the while, the soundscape themes continue on in the background. Lots of twists & turns layered on top of one another throughout this mix. This is more than music... its sheer artistry at its best. Thank you for the awesome beats and the inspiration!

4:23 mark - YEAH MAN.... A touch of eerie on the female vocals; like the cobra under the sheets with the lights out and all you wanted to do was sleep. 9:40 - JUICY ACID on the synth - http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-BnY2Bc0FDFg/U-p4IyNd3nI/AAAAAAAAA7o/Y-AsQmnQjgg/s1600/Watermelons.jpg - 25:20 - Wizardry. 27:45 - A glass full of B E A U T Y. 32:05 - Yes.... our kind of GALAXY this scene ere. 36:23 - Seeing this on those keys.... http://www.imgbase.info/images/safe-wallpapers/photography/miscellaneous/14397_miscellaneous_rain.jpg - 44:35 - \\0// All this mind kandi and freedom before a pill has even been taken. 47:35 - Uhhhhh yeah, repeat dat!!!!! 51:10 - My kind of alien this one.... her vocals. 58:33 - W H E W..... http://40.media.tumblr.com/40842e35710cba975b3eff5d624e51da/tumblr_n7d6j1Ubca1scptfio10_1280.jpg - 66:10 - LOVELY.... GUT WRENCHING stanza. And how many people this week should really know that your screams sound like this? 71:10 - Her vocals.... and we just sat there amidst the interrogation as this .... http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120825165915/omen/images/4/47/TeenageDamienFaceOnYigael'sWall.jpg - 86:15 - Coda.... you see.... that's a prison you can't cry in....this is one you can. - Overwhelming is the combination of daily residential chaos and the life grind. If you have hit the ledge then this is your Ascendance. EXPRESSION and escapism are here for when you need to let your mind rest. If you are here raise your hand \0 .... now, let the HEALING commence. 90 mins...52 secs...

Niko Benetos makes super great mixes. The older I get the better it sounds. There is something truely magical about you and your sound. I recently was in Israel where I experanced some powerful magic but your teachings are more on point then anything I experanced there. We got some special magic bro.
