This Week in Trance 009
This week we have awesome new music from Craig Connelly, Lange, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Gareth Emery, Ashley Wallbridge, and Solid Stone. Jumping right into it - Craig Connelly's new single, "Like Whatever," on Garuda (obviously) is out of this world. Besides having a huge, killer melody this track has a really unique change in groove after the first break. I haven't really heard anything quite like it before and Craig's creativity is certainly impressive. Check it out!

The next track this week is a instant classic and it comes from one of the most well respected trance producers out there, Lange. If you follow this post every week, you'll know that I'm a huge sucker for piano, string instruments, and everything orchestral. This track has that orchestral element, but also has a more contemporary electro-ish element that blends really nicely. All-in-all a very impressive release. Hot off the presses - released November 26th.

Also this week we get a sneak peak at a forthcoming Garuda release from Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge. With two big-hitting names like that, how could the track be anything short of monumental? Well, check out "DUI" and decide for yourself. The release date is set for December 17th.
The next track this week is taken off a new two track EP released on Alter Ego Progressive. This beautiful new original mix by Solid Stone called "Refresh" has a classic progressive sound that really makes an impression. Solid Stone reminds us that there still are producers out there staying true to their roots and producing the kind of progressive trance tracks that made the genre what it is today.

The last track this week comes from one of my favorite trance producers of all time, Giuseppe Ottaviani. His new track, "Earthbeat" was released Solarstone's new album, "Pure Trance" earlier this month. And this, my friends, is pure trance. Unfortunately, the track is only available as part of the compilation. But, if you ask me, it's a damn good excuse to buy the whole album. Check it out!!
