SIT 137 I5land - Start Up


SIT 137 I5land - Start Up

Released on Friday 1st July 2016.

This is Stories In Trance and we present SIT 137 by I5land with the three track single Start Up.

Firstly we have the Original mix from Czech producer Ludek Simcik under his moniker I5land. Making his fourth of what we hope is many appearances on Stories In Trance, he follows on from his remix of Fulgurant's If It Ain't Broke (SIT 135) with this great original piece. He uses a deep, driving low-end, whilst keeping a delicate melodic feel, with well defined layering which keeps the track progressing throughout. Another superb creation from this top class producer!

The first remix comes from Russian producer Arthur Valiev under his now familiar Vaali moniker. Vaali has a vast collection of excellent tracks and remixes on SIT, most recently his fabulous original Say Something (SIT 132). Again he demonstrates a vast array of pure natural talent with this truly unique piece, perfectly blending the sublime melodic lead against deep, driving mids and lows. The great thing about this track (and indeed all of Vaali's productions) there is no genre limitations to his expressive output and he always offers up something unique. Another brilliant piece of trance to add to Vaali's epic discography.

The second of two remixes is from SIT stalwart Craig London. Craig backs up his most recent remix of Vaali's Say Something (SIT 132) with yet another sublime track. He takes his remix down a powerful and energetic path, perfectly crafting an aggressive yet melodic feel, balanced expertly with the subtle yet potent percussion. As is now customary with Craig's work the overall production technique is of the highest quality, something we have come to expect from his outings on Stories In Trance. Perfectly finished off by the mastering skills of Dan Garton, this is another fantastic offering from this very skilled producer and a fine way to round off surely one of the best all-round packages of 2016.

With this release Stories In Trance shows once again why it 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 136 Soundwave - Last Moments (Re-lived)


SIT 136 Soundwave - Last Moments (Re-Lived)

Released on Friday 27th May 2016.

Stories In Trance proudly showcase SIT 136 by Soundwave with the four track single Last Moments (Re-Lived).

First up we have the Original mix. Initially released in March 2012 as part of the In Quarto EP (SIT 20) we have re-released it as part of our Back Track series and given Last Moments its own single. Italian producer Soundwave (Adrian Iamandei) who featured prominently in SIT's first fifty or so releases, gives us this mixture of pace, power and a superb lead melody. Pure uplifting trance doesn't get much better than this. 

The first of the three remixes comes from Max Stealthy. As with all of Max's productions on SIT the composition is second to none: the driving lead melody and subtle usage of the beautiful and euphoric atmospheric layering all make a fantastic remix. We have always loved working with Max and with tracks of this standard it's very obvious why. A truly talented artist and a true gent, we have been working with Max for over five years now which is something we are very proud of indeed.

The third track on this release comes from Danny Legatto. Polish producer Danny Legatto (AKA Roman Korbut) makes his debut on SIT with this fantastic remix. Danny has been producing for over five and first came to our attention with his superb work on Vectiva Recordings and Yaveric Records so we were delighted to get him involved with us. His production career to date has also seen him appear on labels such as Sensual Bliss, D.Max, State Control, Extrema and Beyond The Stars to mention a few. With this remix Danny sticks to his usual uplifting trance style whilst adding his own subtle touches to the piece using the lead to fabulous effect, perfectly complimented by beautiful atmospheric touches and delicate, yet potent piano layering. Another fine production to add to Danny's ever growing reputation.

Rounding off the release is the Basil XM remix. Fresh from his most recent appearance on SIT with his stunning rethink of Vince Schuld's Distance Means Nothing (SIT 127), Basil is back with another fantastic remix. Continuing with the more uplifting style of some of his previous work he uses the instantly recognisable lead melody to great effect, along with driving mids, potent low-end force and crystal clear percussion. After a final polish from SIT's masterful Dan Garton the end result is something very special indeed. 

With this release Stories In Trance shows once again why it 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 135 Fulgurant - If It Ain't Broke


SIT 135 Fulgurant - If It Ain't Broke

Released Friday 6th May 2016.

Stories In Trance give to the world SIT 135 by Fulgurant with the three track single If It Ain't Broke.

As is proper, up first is the Original Mix. Fulgurant makes his debut on SIT in fine style with this superb track, the first of what we hope is many outings on Stories In Trance for this talented up-and-coming producer who came to our attention after his excellent track Suspect on Mashbuk Recordings earlier in 2016. The strong lead melody is perfectly complimented by sublime layering and warm atmospherics which give the track a beautiful feel, perfectly brought to life once again by our in-house mastering expert Dan Garton. A very impressive production from a extremely exciting new artist.

The first of two remixes is from Czech producer Ludek Simcik under his moniker I5land, making his third of what we hope is many appearances on Stories In Trance with this great remix, following his debut remix of Thunderwolf's The Lost Valley (SIT 130). He adds a deeper, more driving low-end to his mix, whilst keeping the delicate melodic feel of the Original, with well balanced and subtle layering keeping the track progressing throughout. Another seminal production from this top class producer!

The second remix comes from Germany's Matt Mancid. On the back of his stellar remix of Max Stealthy's One Day I Desire (SIT 125) Matt is on remix duties again with another superb offering. He takes the track down a very creative path, brilliantly fusing a mixture of both of Matt's uplifting and progressive styles. This remix is something very special indeed- a real stand out track.  And for a final polish, once our resident mastering master Dan worked his magic, the finished article shines as a great alternative to the original and adds to Matt's reputation as a fabulous producer. 

With this release Stories In Trance shows once again why it 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 134 Airborne Angel - The Collection




SIT 134 Airborne Angel - The Collection.

Released on Friday 22nd April 2016.

Stories In Trance proudly give to the world SIT 134 by Airborne Angel with the ten track artist album 'The Collection'.

The Collection is the second artist album to be released on SIT after Max Stealthy's It's A Matter Of Time (SIT 88) and this time we turn our attention to Airborne Angel's original discography on Stories In Trance.

Airborne Angel (Gustaf Westin) will forever be held in the highest regard by all at SIT, with his track Apollo starting our label's journey in superlative style back in the summer of 2010. His fantastic work continued to grace Stories In Trance over the years and was met with acclaim from DJ's, fellow producers and trance fans alike. The mixture of instantly memorable lead melodies and the unmistakable production finesse always proved to be a winning combination within the trance scene.

Within these ten tracks we believe there to be some of the very best original creations in trance over the last decade. Never afraid to experiment whilst always adhering to a fastidious creative process, the broad structure of trance styles covered in these tracks perfectly illustrates the imaginative ideals and first-rate execution that made his productions stand out from the crowd. These tracks will forever sound fresh and innovative.

We at Stories In Trance are extremely proud to have released productions of this standard individually over the last six years and we think 'The Collection' is a fitting tribute to the legend that is Airborne Angel.
