Quality UK summer weather means pulling out some ultimate trance tracks to blast out on the speakers!
I really want to say there are some awesome tracks around, and as you will notice from the selection below, some great remixes and sample uses of some classic trance! Love them or hate them, you can’t beat hearing some one else’s slant on an awesome release.
I real laid back take on Jones & Stephenson’s classic from 1993. Just perfect for summer weather we are currently being blessed with in the UK
Greg Nash – Summer Overture (Original Mix)
2 Play Recordings
“Overture (French ouverture, meaning opening) in music is the instrumental introduction to a dramatic, choral or, occasionally, instrumental composition.” On the advice of Wikipedia I would say this is a switch track, meaning that once you drop this track or hear it played you know the night has really begun. Dirty bass and euphoric sounds all in one!
Also check out ‘Cloud Shadow‘ as part of Greg Nash’s ‘Shadow EP’, very good stuff too.
Three Drives – Greece 2000 (Sander van Dien Remix)
Massive Drive Recordings
The man that was once half of First State shows that he’ll be marching on with this great remix of the classic that every girl, boy, dog, cat, goldfish and ultimately every trance lover should own by now. 12 years on Sander van Dien does justice to Greece 2000, now over a decade old, 12 years old in fact! I wonder what its teenage years will bring?
Signum – What Ya Got 4 Me (Yvan Prog Trance Mix)
If your anything like me, then you have probably hopped into other genres at times and enjoyed what they had to offer. Signum’s ‘What Ya Got 4 Me’ is an absolute classic that was snapped up by Tidy Trax after it was first released on Jinx Recordings. It was often a track to be heard blasting from chalets at many a Tidy Weekender and now I have a perfect progressive mix of it to cherish over the summer.
Orjan Nilsen – Moving Mojave (Original Mix)
I saw this a few weeks ago when released on Soundpiercing and really grew to love it afterwards. I regretted not putting it in the list that week so I badgered Armada to sign it and guess what… Ok yes I’m telling fibs! But I wouldn’t be surprised if someone from Armada is telling the same kind of story, as I’m sure they would of had a chance to have released this before Soundpiercing and are now making amends – as am I by featuring it this time round.
John Askew – The Door (Original Mix)
Great tech-trance track from John Askew that has a familiar feel to it but I can’t place my finger on it! Can you help me out??
Niklas Harding – The Soul
Black Hole Recordings
“I found love in the music, I found love for my soul…” Very nice sublime vocal over some nice laid back techy sounds. Nice work again from Niklas Harding, I hope your checking out his other stuff.
Glensk – Empty Sky (Indecent Noise pres. Terra Break Rework)
I could recommend all three releases of ‘Empty Sky’, but to define the tech-trance that Indecent Noise produce please go look the word “savage” up in the dictionary.
Artimes – Precious Time (Ex-Driver Remix)
Only One Records
About time I got Ex-Driver in here, great hard hitting trance by these guys keep cropping up everywhere! One of the many great Russian producers getting support and he is seeing support from Ferry Corsten, one to watch.
Push – Trance Indicator (Plastic Boy Remix)
Push’s new album Global Age is due for release and here we have a bonus track that I really enjoy as it provides a bit more depth to the kick than the original. Nicely done and also I spotted there is a bonus remix of Interference by Sean Tyas for any of his fans.
That is my 10 trance tracks, hope you enjoy!
Please discuss below any tunes that you have bought or are really enjoying right now.
