Who's afraid of 138? Most certainly not UK trance producers Allen & Envy. I am consistently impressed by the high quality productions and remixes this dynamic duo have been releasing. Hailing from Leichester, Steven Allen and Scott Envy randomly met at a friend's BBQ back in 2012 and immediately hit it off. They discovered they shared a similar taste in music and vision for producing and thus Allen & Envy was born. 2013 was a huge year for them as Armin Van Buuren supported their music on the A State of Trance radio show and in his sets worldwide. My first aural encounter with Allen & Envy was hearing their remix of Dart Rayne & Moonlight's "Silhouette" on Armin's Universal Religion Chapter 7 and I've been hooked ever since. They've released a whopping 20 singles and remixes on labels such as Armada, Black Hole, Adrian Raz Recordings and more in addition to launching their own label titled Together Recordings. Allen & Envy also have their own podcast called Together As One which is available as a free download every Thursday on their soundcloud. Each week there is an hour long guest mix along with an hour mix from the duo themselves. All in all I think what I admire most about these two is there ability to produce cutting edge trance while also incorporating their own remixes of classics in their live sets (which is enough to make even the most jaded of trance fans get emotional). They've seemingly taken some of the best elements of trance and revolutionized them into a new sound that's all their own and it's utterly addictive, uplifting and full of emotion. So with that strap yourselves in and get ready for the sounds of Allen & Envy, enjoy! Silhouette "Save Your Last Breath" is their latest release and the very definition of uplifting. Save Your Last Breath "Stole The Sun" is the perfect track to keep the energy going during a work out or a club set. Stole The Sun Below is one of my favorite sets from this talented pair, check it out!
