  With all of the Neon Vision hype around Kaskade being voted #1 DJ, you must surely know him by now. But not many people have heard of his up-and-coming rival, the world’s first feline DJ, Catskade. Although the vocals in his productions have proven to be naturally limited (due to the fact that he’s…

TRANCE THURSDAYS: Throwback Edition #1

gabrieldresden

If you’ve been listening to trance for a while, there’s a strong possibility that you’re getting tired of the latest tracks being released in 2013.  Nowadays there are too many vocals, too much floaty mainstream pop-sounding whiny garbage.  Even the producers that continue to make awesome hard trance will also release tracks that are too…

TRANCE THURSDAYS: Broning

broning

Ok, so it seems like the Russian producers are dominating my TRANCE THURSDAY column!  But this week’s choice artist truly deserves a feature, which you’ll agree with after you hit P.L.A.Y. His name is Broning and his new EP, P.L.A.Y., is some of the best melodic trance I’ve heard this year!  Signed to Gareth Emery’s…

TRANCE THURSDAYS: Dimension & Moonsouls (Ultimate Remix)

infrasonicpic

Uplifting, peaceful, reflective, energetic — in my educated opinion, these are the qualities of pure trance.  As electronic music evolves, so does each genre, including trance.  From electro-trance to psy-trance to prog-trance to many more, trance tends to steer away from these essential qualities.  Some tracks are energetic but not peaceful enough, others are peaceful…

With his debut single released under legend Bryan Kearney’s label “Kearnage”, Adam Ellis is sure to be a favorite for psy-trance lovers. Ellis grew up in Sheffield, Britain which is called the “spiritual home” of trance due to Gatecrasher (a huge event that happens multiple times a year, sort of like ASOT). His influences are very…

TRANCE THURSDAYS: DNS Project

Trance heads that love 140 BPM tracks will DIE FOR “Terra”, this week’s TRANCE THURSDAY track of the week by DNS Project! Upon first listen, “Terra” sounds like heavy trance from someone like Beat Service. Surprisingly, Beat Service and DNS Project are both from the same place, the country of Estonia.

TRANCE THURSDAY: D-Mad

d-mad

Within 2 days of its release, this epic big-room track was in the Beatport Trance Top 100.  The single is “D.V.A.M.” by Russian producer D-Mad. Seriously, this massive “smasher” as the internet is calling it, should be on every house/trance/trouse DJ’s playlist right now. Even though D-Mad is extremely underrated, with only 3,000 “likes” on…

TRANCE THURSDAYS: Jaco

Although I couldn’t find much info on Norwegian producer Jaco, he has been mysteriously popping up on the biggest trance podcasts in the world. Signed to Enhanced Music, Jaco has released a number of festival bangers like “Malaysia” six months ago.  His style is comparable to Arty, with big trance breakdowns that would put anyone…
