Rare purchase

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)

Fresh tunes in the trance sector

Here are some highly recommendable new trance tracks:

Simon Patterson – Always (Original Mix).

Already the previously released “thump” was a very decent tune, it was mixed well and had a surprisingly melodic break. “Always” tops it easily though. It belongs to my favorite tracks of 09 so far. Everything fits in this tune.

Thomas Coastline – Love victims (Temple One Remix)

Again, Joe Garrett aka Temple One makes a fantastic remix elevating an already very interesting original track to a hymn.

Paul van Dyk – Forbidden fruit (Giuseppe Ottavani Remix)

There are a few gems on the remix album containing Paul’s classic tunes. This one, “forbidden fruit” was always one of my favorite tracks from PvD. Giuseppe successfully kept the best parts of the track, made it faster and sound even better than the original version.

Paul van Dyk – Nothing but you (Super8 & Tab Remix)

Anjunabeats residents and Finnish DJs Super8 and DJ Tab did a fantastic job here.

Phillip Alpha – Sudden Changes (Original Mix)

At the Anjunabeats forum there was a big discussion about how similar this track sounds compared with Daniek Kandi’s tracks who coproduced this. So what? Yes, sure, it was influenced by him but it has it’s own style as well.

New releases

Freshly bought here are some very good new trance tracks:

Oceanlab – I am what I am (Lange remix): While “Lonely girl”  just came out as the next single, this track is available on the remix album. By far the best remix/song on that album. Another quality mix by Lange whose releases are always addictive masterpieces.

Joe Garrett – Afterglow (Temple One Mix): To clear it up – Joe Garrett *is* Temple One. I got no idea why he used his real name for this production, it is in the same style as his other tracks. Maybe because it was released at a different label.

Gareth Emery – Exposure/Metropolis: These tracks came out simultaneously and it is difficult to judge which one of them wins. I’ll give the prize to Metropolis though.
