So many of you tell me that you enjoy the comments that I post regarding my podcasts. So, here's a great one that's all about serendipity. I recorded this set this morning, but had been in a little bit of a quandary because there was a song on it that I just wasn't sure about. It's the second song on the set by The Midnight called "Synthetic". There are two remixes of it: a totally gorgeous and totally "me" type of mix by Mango that, for some reason, has awful sound quality. It sounds distorted and muddy. Then there's also a mix by Lost Empire that's an ok mix but has outstanding sound quality. If you know me personally you KNOW that high sound quality REALLY matters to me. So...I was in a pinch: Use the mix that was just OK but with high sound quality....or the mix that was superb but had wretched sound quality. Well, I decided to let the sound quality win out and I used the just ok mix. But then a funny thing happened. As I was recording the podcast...I accidentally used the wrong remix of another song on the very last song of the mix. BAD MOVE. Or so I thought. I obviously stopped the recording and decided to go about my day and revisit mixing the podcast later. But then a funny thing happened. I got into a texting back-and-forth with a very dear friend later in the morning and I told him about the two mixes...and the big recording mistake...and the fact that I used the "just ok" mix with high sound quality. He told me..."Brian, use the mix with the bad sound quality. If it's what you FEEL IN YOUR SOUL...then put it out there.". So....here you go - I've re-recorded the set and this time I used the gorgeous Mango remix! The sound quality of that particular song may be a little "off" but hopefully it more than makes up for it with the fact that the song is stunning. As always, my sets of music are mixed with serious love and passion. I hope you love what you hear and that this music "touches" you in just the right way. Now...enough chatting. Let's get on to the music....

The whole purpose of listening to music is to be touched by it in one way or another. For this edition of Sophisticated Morning I've chosen to "touch" you with warm, melodic and emotionally deep house music. This set lacks energy but has soothing and loving heart. My studio DJ sets always contain the newest releases from the most relevant artists of the day, both known & unknown. But on this set I also decided to throw in a surprise song that I've played many times before and you've heard on a Morning set of mine many editions ago. As I was searching for the music to put on this set I came across the song and it's always touched my own heart in a very deep and meaningful way. It so affects me...that I decided to include it...just because. Powerful music has no expiration point. So I hope that you enjoy the glimpse into my heart and soul. I speak through music and it's a profound pleasure to share with you. From my heart...to your ears. ENJOY.

This set of music is what I'll call "classic" Brian Norwood. I have been a DJ for many years...and through the years my sound has changed somewhat, yet stayed exactly the same, if that makes any sense. One change that has occurred over the years is that I play a lot less trance music. I have navigated to a slower and "less hectic" sound as I've matured through my DJ career. So this set of music is a nod to my younger trance years, but with a deeper and slower pace. One of the best and most famous trance groups ever is Above & Beyond and they have a brand new album out. It is packed full of spine-tingling emotional masterpieces. I spotlight 2 of their new singles from that album on this mix...because they're just that good. I surround those pieces of music with some of the very best trance and deep house music out right now. This set of music was mixed with a huge amount of love and happiness. I hope that you hear it, you feel it, and you associate with it. Please, if you are just discovering me, know that I care deeply about the artists and remixers who make this incredible music. I have included the full track listing for you. Please take the time to discover and support these artists if you like what you hear. The more we support them...the more they can give us! And with that...let's get on to the music. I have made this download enabled and I hope you'll carry it with you through your days. From my heart...to your ears...ENJOY!

Epic Maui Journey 5 (#2)

This set of music is the "rising" segment of my recent EPIC MAUI JOURNEY gig on Maui. The sun was shining, waves were crashing and everyone was "in sync". Smiles, hugs and cheers were abundant. The music I played during this set is some of my very favorite. This is music that retains it's emotional touch but begins to take on more energy (especially towards the latter part of the mix...). It was a day that I was overjoyed to share with the party-goers and one that I am now glad to share with you. I've intentionally chosen music that is full of sunshine, love and happiness. I hope you love the sound. The mix is download enabled. I only ask that if you love it...that you SHARE it. Also, please support the producers, artists and remixers you discover here. The entire track listing is attached and I encourage you to discover these artists. They are some of the best of the best as far as I'm concerned...and it's important for us all to share the love and support those artists that bring us such joy. From my heart...to your ears...ENJOY!

As a DJ and artist I believe that it's my job to evoke intense emotion out of every person who listens to what I choose to play. Music is an insanely powerful tool that can be used to make every moment better, stronger and more enhanced. And I keep that in mind as I choose every single piece of music that gets heard from me. And that brings me to my latest podcast: SOPHISTICATED MORNING 52. Wow, what a selection of songs I've selected for you to hear. For any typical podcast (or live DJ gig) that I play I start by having listened to hundreds of pieces of music that I sift through to get a skeleton list of songs gathered to work from. And from my list of songs I narrow it down to the very best....of the best for you to hear. I begin this set with a string of powerful chill-house vocal records that are quite emotionally epic. About halfway through the set I take the vibe deeper but carefully chose records that kept emotionlly uplifting tones, vibes and chords that complimented the "feel-good" beginning of the set. These are my favorite types of records: deep, mind-blowing expansive bass, with unique & unusual sounds that grab your heart and imagination. These are anthems, just not the commercial sort you'll hear most places. I hope that you love the journey and vibe I've chosen. As always, this set of music was mixed with every ounce of love I've got to give. From my heart...to yours.

Epic Maui Journey 5 (#1)

The most anticipated day of the party started with bright glistening sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. This party is unique in so many ways - one being that it's located on a remote strip of beach that's only accessible by traversing winding paths and then climbing down over cliffs made from volcanic lava. To say that it takes dedication to produce this party is a bit of an understatement. But because of the dedication of so many loving souls...this party is 5 years strong. This year had drama like no other. At 8:07 AM an alert sent shockwaves across Hawaii: an impending ballistic missile attack was imminent - and it was NOT a drill. Panic washed over the island like a bolt of lightening. Everyone was jolted into urgent thought. People were hysterical, running in the streets - looking for answers. It is during these moments when it's time to decide what you live for. For me and so many of my friends and fellow music-lovers it was a no-brianer: If a ballistic missile was going to rein down upon us...it might was well happen while we were LIVING our best life: DANCING and FLAGGING. As it happened, the ballistic missile alert was indeed a jaw-dropping mistake. The whole ordeal put extra meaning into the day. There was more hugging, laughing, crying, dancing, flagging and overall moments of euphoria that day than can really be described. Words wouldn't give justice to what happened on that beach. In the absence of words...I present to you the music that drove the day. I intentionally chose music that had sunshine baked into it to start the day. These are records of optimism, positivity and sheer joy. I hope you love the sound I chose and I hope that you feel my heart in every sound and every chord that you hear. From my heart...to your ears...enjoy!

If you had asked me 5 years ago to imagine what the Sophisticated Morning series would develop into I really don't think I would have had any idea of what a major piece of my life it would become. I live to share and give. I'm a firm believer that God gives each of us a gift to share with the world...and this is mine. I'm a thinker and a dreamer, and I literally spend much of my free time daydreaming these mixes up. I hear the music in my head. It pushes me through my days. It's my purpose. I'm so glad that you discovered my little corner of the musical universe. It's an incredible joy to share this 75 minutes of uplifting chill house with you. If you love my sound...please share it with anyone and everyone who you know will FEEL and IDENTIFY with it. Music is a tool and it has intense power to lift us when we're down...or make good moments MAGICAL. Again, thank you for listening to my heart and feeling my soul. This is #50...and I've only just begun. From my heart...to your ears. ENJOY.
