Long day? More like long week.
Fall is starting to set in and some of us just need to drift away.
Forget your homework.
Forget your deadlines at work.
Forget your stress.
Happiness is a choice.
And choosing Trance...well it's the best choice you'll ever make.
Embrace the feels
and lose yourself in this weeks Trance Thursday.
1. Solis & Sean Truby - Scorch (Skytech Treatment)
Skytech gives Solis and Sean Truby's Scorch
a devilish treatment, elevating it to an ASOT worthy track, something I'd imagine at one of Armin's live shows. For how hard this track hits, it sure is catchy. I highly recommend adding this to a workout playlist, or for all you DJ's out there, playing it deep into a high energy Trance set. It has a nice little breakdown that will allow dance floor participants to lift their arms and catch their breath.
2. Gelardi & Justine Suissa - Back To The Satellite (Gelardi Mashup) *FREE DL*
Gelardi is a lesser know Trance producer from Denmark, releasing tracks on mostly on Infrasonic. One of his tracks got picked up by edm.com, but this free download, that came out at the same time, only has ~200 plays. Besides discovering lesser known artists, my goal is to provide you with amazing free downloads. Justine Suissa's lyrics are enough by themselves, but this high energy mashup that includes her silky voice from Above & Beyond
pres. OceanLab - Satellite (one of the most respected songs ever created in the Trance genre) makes this free download a Trance Thursday worthy edition.
3. Soundslogic – Quiet Run (Markus Hakala Remix)
This just has that ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
feeling that I'm looking for. Classy, sexy, Trance. Throw you hands in the air at 1:00 melt away. And if you didn't know, this is the sign for hands up: \o/
This track saw big support from Trance legend Chicane
and get's two big thumbs up from this Trance fanatic.
4. Bryan Kearney - KEARNAGE 065
The next two features in this weeks Trance Thursday are full length podcasts that I want to expose you guys to. Both Bryan Kearney
and Jordan Suckley
are guys that I consider purests. They're keep the genre alive and fresh, consistently providing us with hot mixes, one after another, chalked full of instant classics.
You're ears might be burning after you listen to these, but for those who can, you've earned your stripes in the #TranceFamily. For those of you who might be new the idea of the Trance family or the entire genre, I'd encourage you to sit back and hit play, when you hear something you like, check out the track list and start Google-ing. Figure out who you like and start following them on Soundcloud. I promise it will enhance the quality of your life.
