Another week has flown by, it amazes me how quick the time flies by and I’m here again looking at the masses of releases. I know the headline reads “to start the month”, and yes they were released last month…but hey-ho that’s the way it goes when you publish on the 1st of the month – pinch, punch, first of the month and no returns!
The most difficult part of these posts is deciding what to feature! Sometimes it is due to the volume of good releases, but the most difficult part is the way the download sites work and the release schedules. I am only human, so therefore I don’t always know if a track has been previously released when it gets re-released. There seems to be no way of telling “This is brand new and has never touched our stores inventory in any form before!”
I have found one way of telling (on Beatport at least) which involves some clicking, namely clicking the artist name, then Tracks and sorting them by name and seeing if it is duplicated. I may include some of these anyway just because I really do like the track and want to support the artists involved.
My problem, not yours – sorry to bore you
If you didn’t see it, this week I wrote a post with some thoughts about Simon Cowell’s DJ talent show. I recommend putting the kettle on first, and of course reading this post first.
So in no particular order…
10 New Trance Tracks
It is only fitting that I include this re-release by two artists I have the upmost respect for. Simon Cowell may have have all the pop stars in his pocket, but Paul Oakenfold and Robert Vadney are quite clearly stating this is not the world of pop… Watch it get used as the theme tune for the show now Hahaha!
Another week and another Steve Brian track, well we couldn’t give praise to his new release George Square a miss could we? Hammered out by Kyau & Albert and released on their label Euphonic, a delicious vocal release…
Crikey! Was it really that long ago that the Original Mix of Boom Jinx – Phoenix From The Flames was released? It certainly is coming back home as Maor Levi‘s remix is on fine form!
I hope you are ready for this funky electro trance track. Seriously this is as unique as they come and I’m loving it! Squarz Kamel is now on my ‘one to watch’ list.
A superb release from Luke Bond with vocals from Mark Frisch – another great male vocal anthem released this week!
Round of applause for Andy Paterson with his debut on Detox Records. I don’t know what it is about the Scottish, but they sure know how to produce a good tech-trance tune!
I hadn’t come across Michele Cecchi before. Quality trance production here – no surprises, but I like it none the less.
Timur Shafiev is another great Russian producer who is making waves as more and more of the country’s talent is being recognised. Awesome vocal chops and synth work make this a vibrant track – it really has a sparkle to it!
Beast of a trance track with superb vocals from Lizzie Curious, teaming up with the strong production skills of Nick Sentience. They have kept the Team140 appetite satisfied with this one!
Classic Trance Track | DJ Kim – Jetlag (Alphazone Remix)
It is funny how trance has reverted back to the 140bpm sound being popular with many people – or at the very least there is a large population of trance fans being vocal about it across the web
DJ Kim – Jetlag is fondly remembered by many for featuring on Eddie Halliwell’s Mixmag cover CD ‘Bosh!’, for others it is an instrumental part of the high energy production antics of Alphazone – the question is, where are they now??
