Stories In Trance - Chapter 58


STORIES IN TRANCE - CHAPTER 58

After last month's Hard Trance Special Edition, normal service is resumed, with more of the best of now and a few forgotten gems thrown in for good measure. We kick off with one from the latest Vaali double A-side on SIT, Monoverse, a progressive masterpiece from Sunlight Project, Front, the brand new Matt Mancid rethink of Airborne Angel's Again, a classic from Tritonal featuring Soto, SIT stalwart Craig London, an absolute belter from Push taken from his new album, Armin Van Buuren on top form with his new one, and conclude with yet more fresh off the shelf euphoria as Heaven's Cry and Julie Thompson power us home.

How It Was, As It Is, So It Goes. This Is Stories In Trance...

SIT 162 Airborne Angel - One Edge / Again (Remixes)


SIT 162 Airborne Angel - One Edge / Again (Remixes)

Released on Friday 26th October 2018.

Stories In Trance present SIT 162 by Airborne Angel with the double a-sided remix edition of One Edge / Again.

The One Edge EP was originally released earlier in 2018 but now we have two new remixes of One Edge & Again by I5land and Matt Mancid respectively.

First up we have the I5land remix of One Edge. Czech producer Ludek Simcik (under his now familiar and well regarded I5land moniker) follows on from his last appearance on SIT - his latest original Xanthokon (SIT 160) - with a fantastic new remix. His use of deep low-end power whilst keeping the melodic feel of the original set in I5land's usual uplifting style is nothing short of superb, additionally served by well defined percussion and an ever evolving structure throughout. Another stellar effort from I5land to add to his impressive discography, and one we are proud once again to showcase here on SIT.

The other half of this release is the Matt Mancid remix of Again. We're proud to welcome Matt Mancid back to SIT after a break of nearly two years due to other commitments, but reassuringly, he's still got it in his locker! He takes the track down a truly unique path, brilliantly blending a mixture of Matt's uplifting and progressive styles. This remix is a real stand out track with the added creativity of the bridge in the main climax of the track, reminiscent of fellow countrymen Hypetraxx back in the day. Once our resident mastering expert Dan Garton had given it a final polish the finished article shines as a great alternative to the original and adds to Matt's reputation as a phenomenal producer. 

Another release that once again shows why Stories In Trance is the most diverse and individual label in trance. Always driven by the ideals that we started out with and our ever keen attention to detail, we encourage freedom of expression from all involved in our projects. The end result is pure, undiluted creativity. Because of this, and above all, we are proud to put them out there.

SIT 161 Vaali - Cold Ship / Go Home


SIT 161 Vaali - Cold Ship / Go Home

Released on Friday 31st August 2018.

It is with great pleasure that Stories In Trance present SIT 161 by Vaali with the double A-sided single Cold Ship and Go Home.

Leading the release is Cold Ship. Vaali returns to SIT following on from his last original track Stavropol (SIT 152), and once again he is on great form with this fantastic production. Much like all Vaali's work this track shows off his immense production technique and wide range of abilities in fine style. The fabulous lead melody is backed up expertly by superb atmosphere and piano layering, all punctuated brilliantly by the emotive break. Another truly great piece of trance by Vaali.

Supporting material comes in the form of Go Home. Again Vaali demonstrates an array of pure natural talent with this truly unique piece, perfectly mixing the sublime melodic lead against lush, driving mids and lows, all perfectly complimented by beautiful atmospheric piano layering. In summation this is another two brilliant tracks to add to Vaali's excellent discography. 

Another release that once again shows why Stories In Trance is the most diverse and individual label in trance. Always driven by the ideals that we started out with and our ever keen attention to detail, we encourage freedom of expression from all involved in our projects. The end result is pure, undiluted creativity. Because of this, and above all, we are proud to put them out there.

SIT 160 I5land - Xanthokon


SIT 160 I5land - Xanthokon

Released on Friday 24th August 2018.

Stories In Trance present to you SIT 160 by I5land with the two track single Xanthokon.

Heading the release is the original mix. Czech producer Ludek Simcik (under his now familiar and well regarded I5land moniker) follows on from his last appearance on SIT - his excellent remix of Soundwave's Chasing Dreams (SIT 154) - with a fantastic new creation. His use of deep low-end power whilst keeping a melodic and energetic feel is nothing short of superb, additionally served by well defined piano layering and an ever evolving structure throughout. Another stellar effort from I5land to add to his impressive discography, and one we are proud once again to showcase here on SIT.

The other half of the release comes in the form of a superlative remix from Soundwave. Italian producer Adrian Iamandei follows on from his remix of Craig London's Dunes (SIT 158) with this great rethink. He masterfully blends the energy of the original mix with a more progressive feel, mixing superb atmosphere and brilliant use of the lead melody with excellent production finesse. Another excellent production from Soundwave which perfectly shows off his pure talent and creativity.
