SOLARSTONE ‘SUMMER FILLS THE SKY’

Last month ‘When I Dream’ became the first single sonic to be dispatched from Solarstone’s Ibizan album/loveletter, ‘island’. Joining it today, ‘Summer Fills The Sky’ expands on ‘island’s mission to musically encapsulate the 2020 White Isle expedition most had to forgo.  ‘Summer Fills The Sky’ is Solarstone’s musical backing to that first full, uncheckable moment of…

INDECENT NOISE ‘EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED’

It’s not the first time that preconceptions have required resetting on this channel. In the instance of Aleksander Stawierej though, before we pierce some, we’re going to proliferate a few! Aleksander is the Warsaw-based keyholder to monikers like Raw Tech Audio & ACIDØ; the A&R warden of the Mental Asylum label and through his Indecent Noise guise, the institution’s…

COLD BLUE ‘AUGUST RAIN’ (GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI REMIX)

‘Rain’s gone through more than your average number of metamorphoses in its short history, and not least in its title. Starting life last year with a ‘November’ prefix, it arrived as part of Cold Blue’s exceptional ‘Winter’ album, and a more impressive expo of the German producer’s deeper capabilities it was hard to imagine. From…

MARKUS SCHULZ ‘ESCAPE’

That the eighth album from Markus Schulz is arriving in extraordinary times scarcely needs saying. Some already have – many more will. It’s the direction that artists chose to take with that wealth of additional production time that’s now providing the real insights. By way of example some might’ve imagined that Markus would take our…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI & SUE MCLAREN ‘NOT ONE GOODBYE’

‘Time To Play’, ‘I Believe’, ‘Till We Meet Again’, ‘Slow Emotion 4’, ‘Only A Heartbeat Away’ – when it’s come to singles in 2020, Giuseppe’s straight-up brought it. Today however he could be capping the lot with the release that’s a seasonal wave-off to a summer unlike any other. ‘Not One Goodbye’ once again finds…

DENNIS SHEPERD X SUNLOUNGER ‘I CAN FEEL’

Following its announcement earlier in the month, Dennis Sheperd wastes no time in opening the singles account for his forthcoming ‘Find The Sunrise’ album. ‘I Can Feel’ is the first release to studio-unite Dennis with fellow countrymen Roger ‘Sunlounger’ Shah with a track that’s a classic two-hander created by artists with their own individual sounds,…

IN SEARCH OF SUNRISE 16 – MIXED BY MARKUS SCHULZ, GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI & SUNLOUNGER

Keeping the scene on its toes, last year’s ‘Search’ culminated in the November arrival of ‘ISOS’s first ‘winter edition’. With 2020 however, series-braintrust Black Hole Recordings have restored release balance to ‘In Search Of Sunrise’s force (they figured you could use the dependability!) As such, in early August – right as summer mainlines – the…

COLD BLUE ‘SUMMER CHILLS’

Different times mean different pleasures, which musically has taken producers to some less expected places of late. Not least Cold Blue, for whom the six months – following the December release of his debut album – have not been the anticipated ones. That said, another perspective on ‘Winter’s tracks was something Tobias was mulling. The…

PURE PROGRESSIVE VOL. 1 – MIXED BY ORKIDEA

It took a shade under thirty months for Pure Progressive to rock past its one-hundredth release. That was time enough for the label to bring music from near enough every prog operator of note through its doors and onto floors. Penner, Barone, O’Glue, Saint-Jules, Schossow, Driftmoon, label honch Solarstone (naturally) – you name ‘em, they’ve…

SOLARSTONE & FUTURE DISCIPLE – MONKEY MIA (CLUB MIX & DAVID FORBES REMIX)

Journey north out of Perth and you’ll find a dot on the coastal map that’s garnered something of a post-gig need-to-see rep with DJs travelling out that way. Don’t let that title fool you though, as this place delivers profound experiences of a less-simian and more dolphin-communing variety. Ones profound enough too it seems for…

JOINT OPERATIONS CENTRE – MERAXES / MOM I DON’T FEEL WELL / MOONLIGHT

There’s a half dozen approaches that label supremo John O’Callaghan could’ve taken to befittingly trumpet Subculture’s double century release. If you were expecting him to crown it with some la-di-dah-chirpy, collab-heavy clubfloor roof-raiser though, you’re bang outta luck! No, it is to his best-known (and near career-long) alias that this milestone honour has fallen. Applying…

CRAIG CONNELLY AND SISKIN ‘ ALL FOR LOVE’

More of the ripe stuff falling from his debut album tree today, Craig Connelly unlocks the power of three through his new single. Joining the UK-based DJ/producer are Siskin – the recently formed musical sisterhood comprising of Suzanne Chesterton & Sue McLaren.  A potent musical assembly by any measure, singers and sonic mechanics unite to devastatingly fine…

CRAIG CONNELLY ‘A SHARPER EDGE’

Whether the three years since Craig Connelly album-debuted with ‘One Second Closer’ feels long or brief is almost academic. For Craig himself the duration’s provided the ultimate in transformative phases, seeing him punch up from promising name to major contender. With the arenas and festivals getting bigger and his music drawing evermore DJ air &…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI ‘SLOW EMOTION 4’

Back in the summer of 2018, Black Hole Recordings released BH888 – a release infinitely better known as Giuseppe Ottaviani’s ‘Slow Emotion 3’. Fast-forward nigh on 2 years and with BH999, the label stands on the threshold of its one-thousandth single. The rest you’ve probably guessed by now. That single is indeed ‘Slow Emotion 4’ and if that…

CRAIG CONNELLY FEAT. TARA LOUISE ‘ TIME MACHINE’

Backwards! Forwards!! Hell, who couldn’t use a ‘Time Machine’ right now?! In the form of his new single, that’s exactly what arch trancemaster Craig Connelly’s primed to deliver! Racing up hard on the heels of ‘Tranceatlantic’ – his and Factor B’s first in-studio meet-up, Craig’s tapped the talents of LA-based singer/songwriter Tara Louise for a…

CHRISTINA NOVELLI ‘IT’LL END IN TEARS’ (THE REMIXES)

Last autumn Christina Novelli’s largely unplugged ‘Through My Eyes’ LP served as the platform for ‘It’ll End In Tears’. Unlocking her emotional gates, its soul-touching song acoustically resonated, moving the hardiest of hearts and even threatening a new best-known-for release for the singer. Having unleashed such beautiful desolation on fans, Christina thought the track might just owe you…

SOLARSTONE & JULIE SCOTT ‘RAINBOW KING’ COLD BLUE REMIX

‘3’ – Solarstone’s 2019-released album brought more than its fair share of strikingly original moments. None however had more singularity than the Julie Scott-sung ‘Rainbow King’. The first time they’d worked together in a decade, it was the type of trance esoterica that only a handful of partnerships could’ve crafted. Hidden in the metaphoric margins…

COSMIC GATE ‘YOUR MIND’

CG’S FIRST SINGLE OF THE YEAR DROPS TODAY Having blazed their 2020 release trail with a rework of Armin van Buuren’s ‘Something Real’, Nic & Bossi’s killer new production reaches stores & streaming platforms today. ‘Your Mind’s title tips a knowing wink at the WYM label, its mix-comp companion and Cosmic Gate’s long-standing musical mantra. Oh,…

ZOO BRAZIL ‘FOR SINS AND FALSE ALARMS’

Stylistically classifying what Zoo Brazil does is a feat most John Andersson watchers gave up on time ago. Never out of design, a desire to confound or to duck the sound-du-jour, it’s simply a consequence of his deep-within musical wanderlust. As a result, more than the average, Zoo Brazil’s longplayers have served as critical waypoint snapshots…

JAM & SPOON FEATURING PLAVKA – RIGHT IN THE NIGHT (JOHAN GIELEN AND MORTTAGUA REMIXES)

Other tracks may have announced their arrival, but ‘Right In The Night’ was the one that poured the concrete that internationally cemented Jam & Spoon’s rep. The intoxicating, atypical combination of bass pulse, flamenco strings and Plavka’s smouldering song turned it into a pan-European chart hit. This month Black Hole Recordings takes J&S’s once-breakout/now best-known-for,…

ROBERT NICKSON WITH THEA RILEY ‘FEED MY SOUL’

One of the few calmer, cooler moments amongst Robert Nickson’s otherwise floor-forging ‘Tellurian’ album, ‘Feed My Soul’ was something of an oasis. Notice we said ‘was’ there, as that’s no longer the case! Tracklist 01: Robert Nickson & Thea Riley – Feed My Soul (Club Mix) 02: Robert Nickson & Thea Riley – Feed My…

SOMNA TEAMS UP WITH ENZO & ROXANNE EMERY FOR ‘LONG WAY DOWN’

SOLARSTONE & ORKIDEA ‘SLOWMOTION V’

Your next singles engagement with ‘3’ – Solarstone’s most recent longplayer – comes (title-wise at least) in an agreeably familiar form. Brothers-in-musical-arms Solarstone & Orkidea today deliver an exceptional fifth entry to ‘Slowmotion’, their episodic co-production canon. A decade since the first, ‘V’ again represents the perfect dichotomy between the two artists’ respective sonics. The…

MR SAM FEATURING CLAUD9 ‘CYGNES’ (FIRST STATE AND FERRY TAYLE REMIXES)

Black Hole Recordings takes a timely dive back into the estimable catalogue of French original Mr. Sam, surfacing with a clutch of formidable reworks of his latter-day classic ‘Cygnes’. On initial release, ‘Cygnes’ left a sizable footprint on clubfloors, becoming was one of 2008’s most cheered trancers. Heavily set-listed by everyone from Armin (who compiled…

E11EVEN11MUSIC PRES ROGER SHAH & LEILANI – GUARDIAN OF DREAMS

As many are likely aware, Roger Shah’s a man with ample strings to his musical bow. Multi ranged trance creator, deep house dedicate, composer for meditation & mindfulness; throughout his career he’s achieved the kind of scope few contemporaries can claim. There is one musical area however that, while weaving strands of it into his…

SOLARSTONE & ROBERT NICKSON ‘VOYAGER II’

Solarstone’s first for 2020 also served as the overture for ‘3’ – the Pure Trance sentinel’s most recent longplayer. Given a musical affinity manifest to most, this surprisingly is also the first time Solarstone and Robert Nickson have worked directly together. Reaching out, Richard envisioned a ‘part 2’ to his ‘Pure’-album housed ‘Voyager’ track. ‘Voyager…

SOLARSTONE & BETSIE LARKIN ‘ INDESTRUCTIBLE’

In the most meaningful of musical ways, Solarstone today signs off on a truly epic career year. Having previously found collaboration alchemy with Betsie Larkin through ‘Where Do We Go From Here’ and ‘Breathe You In’, a reteaming for the pair has become an evermore-requested one. One also long anticipated as ‘Indestructible’ – their new…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI ‘MOSCOW RIVER’

Giuseppe Ottaviani has not been kidding around this year. 1 conceptually innovative album, 9 single releases and gigs whose count is pushing triple digits have all been worked into the 365 of his 2019. In fact better make that 10 singles, as the Italian’s about to sign the year off with his first post-‘Evolver’ album material. Time…

SOLARSTONE & ACTIVA ‘SPIRIT’

How does Solarstone follow the month that saw the release of his landmark ‘3’ album, the ‘One’ LP boxset and ‘Pure Trance Vol. 8’!? Well, no more aptly or fitting a way than through the singling out of his first co-production union with ‘Pure Trance Vol. 8’s co-mixer, Activa! ‘Spirit’ receives its Club Mix stripes this week…

SOLARSTONE PRESENTS PURE TRANCE VOL. 8, MIXED BY SOLARSTONE & ACTIVA

Fresh from the release of his ‘3’ and ‘One’ albums, our Pure Trance sentinel Solarstone delivers his eighth annual, bringing another fitting close to this P.T. year. Joining him for 2019’s edition is a DJ & producer whose re-emergence is – essentially – a living, breathing result of the movement itself. After almost a decade away,…

CHRISTINA NOVELLI ‘THROUGH MY EYES’

THE ACOUSTIC SESSIONS VOL. 1 Think you know Christina Novelli? Well, you do… but not nearly as well as you’re about to! The penultimate month of 2019 sees the release of a longplayer that dispenses with the ‘featurings’, ‘&s’ and ‘withs’ and places her work centrestage under a single-beam-spotlight. By-lined ‘The Acoustic Sessions’, ‘Through My…

CHRISTINA NOVELLI ‘IT’LL END IN TEARS’

The final single action to be taken ahead of the release of ‘Through My Eyes’, Christina Novelli’s instrumentally naked album, is acoustic truth bomb, ‘It’ll All End In Tears’. Now part of electronic music’s bedrock, the reach & power of Christina’s voice is only equaled by the heart-homing punch of her written word. Emphasized by occasional…

COLD BLUE ‘WINTER’

Cold… Blue… ‘Winter’… Not for nothing are you seeing the first official album assembly from Tobias Schuh arriving in – of all months – November. It’s a time of year that occupies the producer from Mainz, Germany’s mind to a considerable degree. To say that the release is a clear-cut celebration of the season at…

SOLARSTONE: . . . – – / ONE

So here we are… and here it is. The culmination of a project that now comprises 27 pieces of music, delivered over a 3-album/4-year arc – all heralded by many a meaningful dot and dash. In the instant-hit world of today, its cyphered titles have been a premeditated move to provide an album bomb with…

ORKIDEA – NANA (JEROME ISMA-AE’S IN SEARCH OF SUNRISE REMIX)

Some remixes are really just that good. A mainstay of a number of DJs sets a full 365 after its original release, ‘Nana’s come to be regarded as one of Jerome Isma-Ae’s finest. Despite its reception and enduring appeal, the German musician’s always felt a touch of ‘unfinished business’ about his 2016 work on Orkidea’s contemporary classic. There was however no logical reason to return to it. Until this summer that…

CHRISTINA NOVELLI ‘BEAUTIFUL LIFE’

She’s had many a prolific year, but 2019 is one Christina Novelli can truly put her name on. Rarely a month has passed without the singer-cum-storyteller lending the power of her now instantly recognizable voice and lyrically emotive punch to the work of others. This month though Christina drops back into solo mode. Ahead of…

JOHN O’CALLAGHAN ‘HAMMERS AT DAWN’

Release-wise, there’s been a disturbance in the JOC force this year, but not without fair reason. Having blazed the trail with its live shows, the Subculture premier had release-matters of a Key4050 nature to attend to. To start wrapping up his 2019 though, John thought he owed floors a standalone. And with ‘Hammers At Dawn’…

MAURO PICOTTO ‘LIZARD’ (COSMIC GATE REMIX)

Could ‘Lizard’ be the most significant influence on Cosmic Gate’s formative sound!?? Given where it sits in the timeline – decimating clubfloors just six months before the pair formed – has to at least put it in the running. Further, with it being just one of the two other-artist tracks CG gave remix nods to as part…

SOLARSTONE ‘SKY’

This week, dropping out of the clear blue yonder, the second single transmission prefacing the release of . . . – – (‘Three’) – Solarstone’s impending longplayer. Really, what brighter way to start the autumn?!! Chasing up on the heels of ‘Landmark’ – his Lostly team-up, October sees Solarstone reach spiritually, musically and titularly for…

ROBERT NICKSON ‘TELLURIAN’

Translating what the eyes see into what the ears hear when they scan the night sky has been an obsession of musicians as far back as Holst composing ‘The Planets’. Since, many within the electronic music province have tried to articulate the grandeur and enormity of the cosmos, but few – if any – have…

JES ‘WE BELONG TO THE NIGHT’

On the cusp of seasons change, American singer-songwriter JES waves a musical farewell to summer, and through her extraordinarily powerful voice greets the fall with new release ‘We Belong To The Night’. Following the trap x electronica infused ‘No One Else’ with the Disco Fries, and Will Atkinson’s chart-dominating trance safari of her hit ’Imagination’,…

SOLARSTONE & JONATHAN MENDELSOHN ‘THIS IS WHERE IT STARTS’

With the contrail left by his Lostly collab ‘Landmark’ still visible in the rearview, Solarstone signs his summer off with another debut teaming. This particular meeting of musical minds however is of the producer x singer variety, as Jonathan Mendelsohn brings new single ‘This Is Where It Starts’ its candidly honest, emotionally stirring song. Over…

ATLANTIS – ‘FIJI’ (REORDER + MEETING MOLLY REMIXES)

‘Fiji’, ‘Atlantis’: if these words are transmitting some attractive images to your mind, safe to say it’s nothing compared to what the track itself’s gonna do! That may already have happened however, as ‘Fiji’  – a release that came whisper close to all-out classic status – has lain largely dormant since its year 2000 chart…

COSMIC GATE ‘THE WAVE 2.0’

Now here’s one you may have heard before… Or for that matter maybe not, as within Cosmic Gate’s oeuvre, ‘The Wave’ is considered more ‘in-the-know’ than a CG ‘classic’ or ‘anthem’ in their conventional sense. Never re-released, never covered and – extraordinarily – not remixed since its original 2003 outing, over time it’s become –…

RAM Departs Grotesque; Forms New Music Label / Events / Publishing House, Nocturnal Animals // First Single: Ciaran Mcauley & Clare Stagg ‘ALL I WANT’ OUT TODAY

All change for RAM in July 2019, and when we say “all”, that’s precisely what we mean! The Dutch DJ, producer and electronic music impresario bids farewell to Grotesque – the Dutch institution he helped found & build over many electronic music years – for a new pasture. That pasture specifically is Nocturnal Animals, his…

LTN – THE PATH OF LIFE

Following 2015’s ‘People I’ll Never Forget’, ‘The Path Of Life’ is the second studio album from Indonesian producer, Louis ‘LTN’ Tan. Artistically it expands the size, scope and ambition of its predecessor, whilst retaining at its core Tan’s favoured undercurrents of existentialism and spirituality. Teaming up with label partner AVA Recordings, at one stylistic end…

REORDER & CASSANDRA GREY – GOODBYE (EXTENDED MIX & OMNIA REMIX)

Make no mistake, ReOrder (Tibor Tomecko) and singer Cassandra Grey knew exactly what they were doing when they got together to make ‘Goodbye’. Long-story-short, the track’s a vocal trance missile set to strike at all the right heartstrings! Plucked from the tracklist of his debut longplayer, following ‘IAMREADY’s release last November, it sped to the…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI – EVOLVER

‘The producer’s producer’, as he’s often referred, are really just words until you’ve empirically witnessed how Giuseppe Ottaviani does that thing he does. The divide that separates what the audience hears and how it came to be however has been one Giuseppe Ottaviani’s been chipping away at for time. From audience-inspired idea-kernel to diamond-in-the-rough demo,…

ROBERT NICKSON – GRAVITON

Marking the first in a concentrated singles run throughout summer ‘19, musical cosmonaut Robert Nickson prepares to take trance to the outer reaches once again. Through his and M.I.K.E. Push’s ‘Lunar Lander’ and Astrosphere – Robert’s pair-up with Driftmoon – the Dutchman’s been in a collabaratory state of mind this year. Late June however sees…

COSMIC GATE – COME WITH ME

If ‘Come With Me’ already sounds ear-pleasingly familiar, well your instincts don’t deceive you! Track first met audience during that brightest of bright annual-trance-calendar nights, ASOT. Leaving the metaphorical crater in central Holland last Feb, Cosmic Gate dropped fans the mother of all upcoming hints. Opening their mainstage set with its Intro Mix, switchboards lit…

SUBCULTURE MIXED BY CRAIG CONNELLY & FACTOR B

John O’Callaghan’s Subculture label tips its cap to summer with a fittingly superheated dual-disc music compilation. For it, the mix-reins have been passed to two of the label’s most trusted operators, Craig Connelly & Factor B. As is evermore the series’ form, our protagonists have used the platform to bring a near album’s worth of…

SOMNA & HALIENE ‘SECRET’ (KINETIC MIX)

Some secrets can only stay secret so long… and this is one of em! Blowing up big in spring, ‘Secret’ – Somna & HALIENE’s first artistic union held the buzz spotlight for two months straight. Bossing radiowaves & drawing major props from the media, it received equally rapturous responses from the DJs, whilst out on…

SOLARSTONE & LOSTLY ‘LANDMARK’

The beginning of the end…!?! Well, yes and no. ‘Landmark’ is the first track to be drawn from the tracklist of the final act in Solarstone’s epic, episodic and artistically epitomising triple-release album arc. The word on the ‘Three’ album (aka ‘. . . – -’) is that it’s ‘the collaborations one’ – a rumour…

3 Beatport #1s on the run – can Giuseppe Ottaviani make it 4 with ‘Colours’?

Following his successive run of Beatport #1s (with ‘Panama’, ‘Tranceland’ & ‘8K’), ‘Colours’ is the fourth of Giuseppe’s precursor salvo, blazing the trail to his new ‘Evolver’ artist album. A piece of music that organically sprang to life during club sets, its most essential elements were live jammed instinctively by Ottaviani, becoming immediately supercharged by…

JES – NO ONE ELSE (DISCO FRIES REMIX)

JES is thrilled to announce the worldwide release of her new single ‘No One Else’ through eminent Dutch dance imprint Magik Muzik, with remix production from New York outfit Disco Fries. Chasing on the heels of her Beatport Trance chart #1 ‘Imagination’, ‘No One Else’ is the first new material to be released from JES’s…

MARK SHERRY – THE DEBUT ALBUM ‘CONFIRM HUMANITY’

Two years back Mark Sherry had his humanity questioned. Nobody – least of all he – could have known it’d trip off his first artist album. Clicking a captcha to ‘confirm’ his ‘humanity’ was an innocuous, seemingly fleeting moment. Everything that followed that, well, markedly less so. Over the following minutes, hours, days & weeks…

ALL HAIL THE SILENCE – THE ALARM (VINCE CLARKE REMIX)

Produce a track that’s as fond a homage to one of the most revered pioneers of electronic music as is modern-day achievable? Check. On release get approving nods/noises on the track from said pioneer? Check. Have pioneer subsequently develop such a love for the track that he ultimately wants to remix it? Annnnd check! Safe…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI – 8K

Appetites whetted? Anticipation built? Expectations in high orbit!? Thought so! Topping charts and dropping bass, ‘Panama’ & ‘Tranceland’ – Giuseppe Ottaviani’s 2019 album vanguards – have offered insights most enticing into what the Italian has in store with ‘Evolver’ – his fourth longplayer. And kicking that drumbeat up another gear, here comes its next single!…

MARK SHERRY & CHRISTINA NOVELLI – LIGHTING FIRES

With the ‘Confirm Humanity’ single shedding first light on what Mark Sherry has up his sleeve on his incoming namesake LP (whilst naturally throwing down on floors globally!), the Scotsman flips its second ace today. The single introduces a vocal aspect to the album’s fusion, and one that comes from none other than Christina Novelli….

MARK SHERRY ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM, ‘CONFIRM HUMANITY’

Tracks? He’s released a few (fifty or so). Music comps? He’s put a few of those together too. He’s also launched one of the genre’s most successful label houses of recent times, spun in an A-to-Z of club capitals and generally has more strings to his bow than Robin Hood. To date however there’s been…

LET’S TALK, DRIFTMOON! THE CZECH PRODUCER DISCUSSES HIS ‘REMEMBER THE NIGHT’, RECORDED LIVE AT EPIC LP

Juraj, you’re out with your ‘Remember The Night [Recorded Live At EPIC]’ this spring. After ‘(R)Evolution’ and ‘Invictus’, it’s another release with a non-traditional approach to the album. In your words, what does that involve? Driftmoon: “I always try to give something special to listeners and party goers, whether it’s including live elements to my performance…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI – TRANCELAND

We don’t think we’d be kidding anyone if we told you that ‘Tranceland’ – the latest rocket from Studio Ottaviani – was an unusual-yet- stylish merging of future house, glitch hop and moombahton. No, April Fools was last week, so, what you’re actually looking at is a full-throated, die-hard championing of all things trance-titular! It’s…

VII SOLO VOL. I – MIXED BY SIMON PATTERSON

VII’s power lies in precisely that: absolute concentration on the music of just seven artists. Coming up over the last few years, its mandate has swiftly resulted in an open-tap stream of club-empowering audio from some of trance’s cooler and more underground-respected names. With spring 2019 comes the launch of the inaugural album in what –…

BOBINA x CHRISTINA NOVELLI – SAVIOUR

Having last September ridden to the sun with the almost irresponsibly catchy ‘Mysterious Times’, Bobina & Christina have sensed the synergy and double-timed it back into the studio! Their follow-up is a fragile chillout number, which segues slowly into beatless… Nah, just kidding! It’s a heart-stealing, floor-thrilling, couldn’t-tie-it-down-if-you-tried outing, which will bounce you & your mates…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI – PANAMA

Today Giuseppe Ottaviani turns the page and enters a new album phase with ‘Panama’. The first release to come from ‘Evolver’ – his upcoming 2019 longplayer, its vanguard single sheds first light on the rumoured swing back to the Italian’s origin sound. The track takes its title from the famed Amsterdam club spot, where its…

CHRISTIAN BURNS – FIRE + ICE

Following up his 2018 ‘You’re Not Alone’ single, Christian Burns returns to deliver us some ‘Fire + Ice’.

With an original version that’s got both eyes on the airwaves and…

Will Atkinson’s remix captures JES’s ‘Imagination’

Seeing the light in 2008, ‘Imagination’ was amongst the first post-‘Rush Comes’ solo material from the now universally renowned artist, JES. Originally remixed for clubfloors by Tiësto, Kaskade and others, the track spearheaded a monster solo breakout for the American singer, swiftly hitting the #1 spot on Billboard’s Dance Airplay chart. The first single to…

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI FEATURING CLARA YATES – WHY

There are few absolute certainties in life. Night does indeed follow day, autumn makes way for winter, trance is eternal and – in no way coincidental – another Giuseppe Ottaviani floor-rapturer is only ever around the corner. A man who hasn’t broken his production stride in a dozen + years has had another nonstop 365…
