It has been a while since I published a little excerpt from an – to me – unknown track that was played at Kesselhalle (Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin) during Above & Beyonds set at “Euphonic meets Anjunabeats”. It turned out that this was a brandnew tune that – at that time – really nobody knew so no one was able to help me. The meanwhile identified track was finally released and it is surely one of the trance highlights of the year. The artist is 7skies, the title “sushi” , a very well mixed and anthem already being no. 1 at the Audiojelly Downlad Charts. No need to mention that this is again an excellent new release by the Anjunabeats label making it with all it’s other tracks that came out in recent times – besides Enhanced Recordings- one of the best trance labels so far.
As a trance fan in Berlin I have hardly any possibility to enjoy this kind of music in the local Clubs. Berlin – even whole Germany – seems to be heavily dominated by Minimal and Electro when it comes to Electronic Dance Music while in a lot of other countries like Great Britain, Poland and whole Scandinavia Trance is much more appreciated.
The more delighted I was when an event “Euphonic meets Anjunabeats” was announced. The lineup: Jaytech (Anjunabeats, British Trance label), Kyau & Albert (Euphonic, German Trance label), Above & Beyond (Anjunabeats), Ronsky Speed (Euphonic), Stoneface & Terminal (Euphonic). All of the sets were fantastic. The international audience including fans from Poland and The Netherlands in the crowded Kesselhaus at Prenzlauer Berg enjoyed this event that went from 10.30 pm – 7 am. I was already expecting a very good set from Above & Beyond and I was not disappointed. So far I didn’t really like Mashups but the ones that were played yesterday (for instance On a good day / Metropolis) I really liked and they seemed to be especially well received by the rest of audience. Other good tracks like the new single “Thing called love” and “Black is the new yellow” as a mashup with “No one on earth” need to be mentioned as well.
The people that stayed until the end were rewarded by experiencing a fantastic set by Stoneface & Terminal. I admit that I haven’t really noticed much of their work so far but I was heavily impressed by their intelligent, thriving productions being presented on that evening. Here is a short excerpt from Above & Beyond’s set, if anybody knows this tracks please message me.
I’ve been quite busy lately so listening to new music and even deciding what to buy and what not was not really high priority on my list of things I did whenever I had a free min. to relax. But track after track landed on my shopping list and now, finally these fine pieces of trance music landed on my computer.
Ferry Corsten – Because the remix (Original Mix)
Lots of people know Ferry since he is one of the most famous (Dutch) DJs catering to the likes of Trance fans around the world. There are many noticeable new vocal trance songs out there and this one stayed in my ear right from the first time listening to it.
Dash Berlin – Never cry again (Jorn van Deynhoven Remix)
While I am not a particularl fan of the works of Dutch producer Dash Berlin (not as much as he is a fan of our city – see his name), this remix is very good. Again, nice vocal trance.
After Meridian & Dave Costa feat Cat Martin – Empty spaces (Dub Mix)
A very nice progressive track from the fabulous Enhanced Recordings label. Heard it the first time on Trance Around The World and I almost dozed off to it – not because it is boring, it is just beautiful. My favorite track at the moment. Reminds me of the big old classic trance tracks way back then.
Hodel & JP Bates – Mirrors (Sunny Lax Remix)
Surely Hungarian producer Sunny Lax is back. After releasing some new tracks and remixes for other ppl which left basically a question mark on my side since they didn’t really have anything to do with his former fantastic releases this here is a fantastic remix.
Alex M.O.R.P.H. – Sunset boulevard (Original Mix)
Very nice vocal trance by German (! how rare in the trance business) producer Alex M.O.R.P.H. Released on Paul van Dyk’s label.
Simon Patterson – Miss you (Original Mix)
