Stories In Trance are proud to give to you SIT 108 by Triumvirate with this epic five track single Nostalgic Echo.

Up first we have the 1935 mix as Garton & Carter under their Triumvirate alias offer up their second original production after the two incarnations of The Persistence Of Memory- the original release (SIT 60) and the Centenary rework (SIT 100). Inspired by the older structure and style of trance, which was the reason we were drawn to the music in the late 1990's, we offer up something reminiscent of the best of times. Using state of the art studio equipment we have produced a powerful old school trancer, driven and structured around original melodic composition and supplemented by the deep, rich bass and kick, adding some driving percussive layering throughout and the addition of some beautiful piano synths. The delightfully crafted lead melody is backed with sublime layering and a mesmeric potent break which culminates powerfully into something special. This is one for fans of everything that trance once was to savour, in the ever decreasing company of tracks that are guided by originally composed melodies and underpinned by ever evolving and progressing structures. Real music isn't just about the latest, most modern sounds or plugins: most importantly it should make the listener feel something and engage you by letting the concept and composition be interpreted by those who listen. We hope you enjoy.

Up next we have something very special indeed, an incredible remix from Hungarian duo Mac & Monday! Eight years after their first productions under Mac & Monday, Norbert Darvas & Dávid Németh have made many excellent tracks and remixes on some of the biggest labels in the scene such as Premier, In Trance We Trust, Dedicated, Monster Tunes, Harmonic Breeze and most prolifically Borderline. For their remix they give us something truly spectacular; a driving and powerful track that focuses on the more atmospheric parts of the original and add some of their own cultured and sublimely well rounded melodic touches. Mac & Monday are one of our favourite artists in the scene and their remix is something that is to be savoured, standing alongside some of the very best trance of all time. This track is a must have for all true trance enthusiasts and makes an essential addition to any and all sets and mixes. This is without question a track for the ages!

The second remix comes from SIT stalwart Craig London. Craig's career to date has seen him make plenty of impressive appearances on SIT with an abundance of fine remixes and originals, most recently his awesome track A New Beginning (Trance Is Here Anthem, SIT 107). So, fresh from that Craig offers another remix showcasing his vast talents with this energetic and infectious take on the original that ebbs and flows seamlessly. This remix focuses around just a few of the melodic components of the original but builds around them to great effect with driving low end mids and superb atmospheric layering: this is yet another slice of excellent trance from Craig and another fabulous remix that adds to his ever-flourishing reputation.

The next remix comes from Stories In Trance legend Derrick Meyer who brings his unique style to create this superb version. Being one of the USA's best uplifting trance producers, Derrick's back catalogue with us is vast and equally great with his last outing - his remix of Craig London’s Falling Down (SIT 95) - being a perfect illustration of his exceptional talent. Once again he delivers the goods with his usual production excellence - his unmistakable musical dynamics and expertly polished use of the melodic components all amount to a brilliant retake on the original. Derrick always manages to surprise and delight with his inventiveness and supremely well composed productions, evidently a true master of his craft.

The final remix comes from Rhythmsport who makes his second appearance with us after his debut remix of Blue Water (SIT 103). Here he puts his own spin on the original taking it down a more techy and aggressive route balancing an infusion of the original components against ideas of his own. A fine structure is perfectly complimented by an ever developing melody and superb mids and pads which all add up to a very accomplished and impressive remix. Rhythmsport is without question an exciting and very promising newcomer.

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.

Stories In Trance give you SIT 107 by Craig London with the four track single A New Beginning (Trance Is Here Anthem).

Craig's career to date has seen him make plenty of impressive appearances on SIT with some fine remixes and originals, most recently his awesome three track Daydreaming EP (SIT 104). So, fresh from that Craig offers another original written and named in honour of the new Trance Is Here Brand. Showcasing his vast talents with this energetic and infectious track that ebbs and flows seamlessly, this is yet another slice of sumptuous trance that adds to his ever-flourishing reputation.

Kicking off the remixes is Igor Stroom. Following on from his excellent remix of Zos Van Zindell's Victorious (SIT 103), Igor shows why he has become one of Eastern Europe's most notable producers. Perfectly using all the highlights of the original with his usual fantastic production technique he takes his remix down a more progressive route. With brilliant use of melodic components underpinned by fabulously rich mids this is a stunning remix from Igor and an awesome addition to his ever impressive catalogue of productions. Sure to be a smash in any set or mix.

Up next is the first of two remixes from Vaali. Russian producer Vaali (Arthur Valiev) has a vast collection of excellent tracks and remixes on SIT- recently offering up his fantastic remix of Triumvirate’s The Persistence Of Memory (Centenary Mixes, SIT 100) and his sublime Midnight EP (SIT 106). His first interpretation we get what we know and love from Vaali- power, potency, and wonderful production technique. The immense lead melody is complimented by a deep driving low-end and subtle yet definitive melodic touches, making this an energetic and powerful track from a very creative and talented producer.

In addition, Vaali serves up his ‘Alternative’ remix. Taking the original down a more techy progressive route he once again uses the lead melody to great effect, backed with deep, lush mids it all adds up to a creative and unique rethink of the original.

With this release Stories In Trance shows once again why it is the most diverse and individual label in trance.

Released on Monday 25th August 2014.

Check out the tracks on the EP with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phliqcpOgig

Stories In Trance present SIT 106 by Vaali with the three track Midnight EP, including the tracks Midnight, The Firsen and Expectation.

Russian producer Vaali (Arthur Valiev) made his production debut with his fabulous track My City (SIT #81) and since then has backed that up with several excellent tracks and remixes- most recently offering up his remix of The Persistence Of Memory (Centenary Mixes, SIT #100). Once again he shows his vast and varied talents with three excellent tracks, starting with Midnight. In this short but truly superb track Vaali makes great use of every frame, with an immense lead melody complimented with beautifully rich mids, and underpinned with great effect by a deep driving kick which all makes this a fabulous track with an awesome feel.

Second on the EP is The Firsen. This time Vaali shows off his more uplifting style but even though this is the faster of the three tracks on the EP it doesn't lack any of the melodic and musical components of the other two. The fantastic lead melody is perfectly complimented by delightful atmospheric touches and the now trademark Vaali production excellence. This is a truly fine track.

The final offering is Expectation, and given how high the bar has been set by the standard of the EP to this point you won't be disappointed as yet again Vaali delivers the goods. This is a musical treat that is driven by strong, well defined melody and expertly garnished with subtle yet potent mids, every sound in the track adds something to the overall quality of the end product. It goes without saying that we are huge fans of Vaali's work as his productions illustrate everything that is great about trance, whatever the style.

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.

After his very impressive debut, Zos is back with his third release after his first two releases, the well received Victorious EP Part 1 & 2 (SIT 101 & 103). Up first we have Valhalla and just like his previous offerings this is a fine composition. Musically driven it has a sublime feel, backed with subtle yet potent percussive and melodic evolution which all put together gives the track a well defined sound. This is once again a perfect example of the type of trance we love and are happy to showcase.

Complimenting that is Horizon. Descriptively it's much the same as Valhalla, driven by a beautiful melody that is expertly complimented by fantastic piano touches, superbly highlighted by an ever involving structure it all culminates in a genuinely great track. With this undoubtedly strong two track release Zos illustrates his vast talents and shows why there is much to be excited about with this Australian rising star.

Stories In Trance present SIT 104 by Craig London with the three track Daydreaming EP; including Daydreaming, Walk On Water & Falling Down (Uplifting Mix).

Craig's career to date has seen him make plenty of impressive appearances with us with some fine remixes and originals, most recently his awesome remix of Konstantin Svilev’s Terminal One (SIT 102). So, fresh from that we go straight into his first offering here, Daydreaming, and once again Craig is on top form. Showcasing his vast talents with this energetic and infectious track that ebbs and flows with seamless transitions between the brilliant melody and driving mids and bass, this is yet another slice of sumptuous trance that adds to his ever-flourishing reputation.

Secondly we have Walk On Water. This is an energetic yet subtle production with a beautiful and evocative feel, fantastically melodic and musical set against a well rounded driving low end. A truly fine piece of work and another standout track to add to Craig's ever impressive discography.

Rounding out the EP we have a special Uplifting mix of Craig's seminal Falling Down. This time he gives us a more energetic and powerful version of the Original that uses the vocals from Lokka to beautiful effect. Warm and well defined melodic mid range is complimented superbly by the fantastic vocals, which altogether give us a truly fabulous vocal track that stands up there with the very best.

SIT 103 Zos Van Zindell - Victorious EP Part 2

SIT 103 Zos Van Zindell - Victorious EP Part 2.

Released on Monday 30th June 2014.

Check out all the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWPsDFpFtZU

Stories In Trance present SIT 103 by Zos Van Zindell with the three track Victorious EP Part 2.

After the release of the Victorious EP (SIT 101) we offer Part 2- the remix edition- which includes remixes of all three tracks from the original release by Igor Stroom, Rhythmsport and Max Stealthy.

Up first we have the Igor Stroom remix of Victorious. Following on from his excellent remix of Triumvirate’s The Persistence Of Memory (Centenary Mixes) (SIT 100), Igor shows why he has become one of Eastern Europe's most notable producers. Perfectly using all the highlights of the original with his usual fantastic production technique he takes his remix down a more progressive route. With beautiful layering this is a stunning remix from Igor and a brilliant addition to his ever impressive catalogue of tracks and remixes. Sure to be a smash in any set or mix.

The second remix comes in the shape of another debut on SIT from Rhythmsport AKA Alex Elenes with his version of Blue Water. Although a relative new arrival to the scene Alex has had appearances under his two aliases on labels such as 4Beat, Elliptical, Dub Tech, Somerhold, Vectiva and B-Sonic and it was his excellent track Nightfall on 4Beat earlier this year that brought him to our attention. He puts his own spin on the original and takes it down a more techy and aggressive route: a fine structure is perfectly complimented by an ever developing melody and superb mids and pads which all add up to a very accomplished and impressive remix. Alex is without question an exciting and very promising newcomer.

To finish we have the last of the three remixes, and this one comes from Stories In Trance legend Max Stealthy. Fresh from his sensational remix of The Persistence Of Memory (SIT 100) Max once again delivers the goods. He uses all the melodic components against a punchy kick and driving mids to awesome effect, perfectly blending the atmospheric elements to add substance and depth to the mix it all comes together superbly in this top class production from one of our very favourite artists. In our humble opinion Max has become one of the very best producers in the scene as all of his productions show he has an abundance of imagination, creativity and talent, and that is why we are extremely proud to work with him.

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.
