Trance Thursdays 003

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Welcome back to Trance Thursdays! This first track is from New York's Mike Saint-Jules. I've had the pleasure of meeting Mike on several occasions both in NYC and Miami, and he's an earnest, talented producer and person. Very happy to see he's getting the recognition he deserves! Everlasting. One of my favorite Tiesto tracks. Take a journey with me. I'm f***in in LOVE Kyau & Albert's style of Trance. It's hard-hitting, jumpy, aggressive, yet incredibly uplifting and melodic depending on where you're at in the track. My favorite part is the vocal sampling you hear around three minutes in.

For this edition's liveset, the choice was easy. After hearing a particularly disappointing Armin set from Tomorrowland filled with cheesy remixes of several of his Intense originals and excessive doses of the dreaded Big Room House, I ruled that one out in flash. Instead, I spent an hour and twelve minutes being serenaded by the inexplicably euphoric sounds of Above & Beyond's live Essential Mix from Cream in Ibiza. The mix features several of their recent singles, as well as several exclusive mashups and a slew of Anjunabeats artist productions. It's simply marvelous. Come back next week for more Trance!
