SIT 168 Arthur Valiev - Obsidian / Quartz


SIT 168 Arthur Valiev - Obsidian / Quartz

Released on Friday 7th June 2019.

This is Stories In Trance, and SIT 168 arrives in the form of this superb double A-sided single Obsidian / Quartz from Arthur Valiev. 

Up first is Obsidian. Maybe you're familiar with Arthur's work under the long-standing Vaali alias, but of recent times the quality has been coming to us under his own name, and following on from his most recent remix of Star (Relit) (SIT 166) he carries on his top form here with this fantastic production. Much like all Arthur's work this track shows off his immense production technique and wide range of abilities, this time taking us down a more uplifting route. Arthur knows how to create and implement great melodies and here the fabulous lead is backed up expertly by rich atmosphere, beautiful piano layering and perfectly complemented all the way through with an ever evolving structure that will have you hooked right from the start.

The second half of this release is Quartz. Much like Obsidian this showcases all of Arthur's supreme talents and versatility but Quartz has a more aggressive feel, with an energetic lead and superb percussion giving this track a powerful edge. Over the two tracks on offer here is a definitive illustration of Arthur's creativity and class as an artist, and showcases why he is one of our absolute favourite producers.

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.

Released on Friday 31st May 2019.

Stories In Trance present SIT 167 by Danny Legatto with the two track single Back To Me. Includes Original and London & Niko remix.

First off is the Original Mix. Polish producer Danny Legatto (AKA Roman Korbut) makes his first appearance on SIT since his remix of SNDWV Now Or Never (SIT 155) and this time offers up his debut original on Stories In Trance. Danny presents his renowned uplifting style whilst adding another level of energy and creativity to the piece. Using the lead to great effect, it is perfectly complemented by beautiful atmosphere, euphoric pads and piano layering, all expertly topped off with an ever evolving and captivating structure. After a final polish by our in-house mastering guru Dan Garton it makes the full 7 minutes 30 seconds something to be enjoyed from start to finish.

On remix duties is SIT legend Craig London and this time it's a collaboration under his alias London & Niko. Craig backs up his last appearance on SIT, his original creation Dunes (SIT 158), with this excellent remix produced with his new production partner Niko. Alex Niko hails from Iran and he and Craig have been making some great tracks together over the last couple of years. They expertly combine the melodic and energetic feel of the original, balanced perfectly with brilliant atmospheric layering to give this track a superb uplifting flavour.

SIT 166 Airborne Angel - Star (Relit)


SIT 166 Airborne Angel - Star (Relit)

Released on Friday 3rd May 2019.

As the legacy of Stories In Trance continues to unfold, we present SIT 166 by Airborne Angel with the three track single Star (Relit). Including two great new remixes from Edelways and SIT favourite Arthur Valiev, and the Original Extended mix.

Heading the release is the Edelways remix. Emerging Russian trance star Edelways (Arut Anastasyan) makes his first appearance on SIT after making his name to date with great tracks and remixes on labels such as Always Alive Recordings, Emergent Skies, Synchronized Music, Arcana and Mondo. His debut on SIT serves up something truly special indeed with this superb reworking of this Airborne Angel classic. Building from the unique brilliance of the original and blending with his own production finesse, the end result is a real standout track. Beautiful feel, brilliant layering, fantastic atmosphere, fabulous structure and exceptional use of the lead melody all add up to surely one of the best tracks of 2019. This is a cracker!

The second remix comes in the shape of the Arthur Valiev remix. Maybe you're familiar with his work under the long-standing Vaali alias, but of recent times the quality has been coming to us under his own name, and following on from his most recent release 'Love Me / To See The Spark' (SIT 165) he features here with this fantastic production. Much like all Arthur's work this track shows off his immense production technique and wide range of abilities, this time he taking us down a more progressive route. Arthur knows how to use great melodies and here the fabulous lead is backed up expertly by rich atmosphere and perfectly complimented all the way through with an ever evolving and developing structure that has you hooked right from the start.

Rounding off the release is the Original Extended mix, from back in 2013. Time certainly hasn't dimmed this fantastic track and just in case you missed in back in the day,here's another chance to get hold of a true classic. It's hard to describe just how good Airborne Angel's productions on SIT are: amazing composition (as always) comprising of a properly defined lead melody and sublime structure, this one has always been a track to savour.

Another release that once again shows why Stories In Trance is the most diverse and individual label in trance.

SIT 165 Arthur Valiev - Love Me / To See The Spark


SIT 165 Arthur Valiev - Love Me / To See The Spark

Released on Friday 15th March 2019.

It is with great pleasure that Stories In Trance present SIT 165 by Arthur Valiev with the double A-sided single Love Me / To See The Spark.

Leading the release is Love Me. Arthur Valiev who may be more familiar to you under his Vaali alias follows on from his last release Cold Ship / Go Home (SIT 161) using his Arthur Valiev moniker for the first time since Stavropol (SIT 152), and once again he is on great form with this fantastic production. Much like all Arthur's work this track shows off his immense production technique and wide range of abilities but this time he adds a vocal track to his repertoire. Arthur knows how to write beautiful melodies and here the fabulous lead is backed up expertly by superb atmosphere and perfectly complimented all the way through with great use of the vocals. 

The second half of the release is To See The Spark and much like Love Me this is a musical treat indeed; similar ingredients to Love Me and similarly great results. A beautiful feel, superb use of the vocals and fabulous production technique all add up to another sensational track.

This is yet more special work by a truly fantastic producer and a great two track release to showcase what SIT is all about.

SIT 164 Soundwave - Alpha Librae


SIT 164 Soundwave - Alpha Librae

Released on Friday 8th February 2019.

Stories In Trance return with our first release of 2019 from Soundwave with the two track single Alpha Librae, including the original and Matt Mancid remix.

We start, as is proper, with the Original mix. Italian producer Adrian Iamandei follows on from his remix of Man En Trance's Sunrise (SIT 163) with another superlative original production. He expertly blends an intense euphoric feel with pure energy, superbly blending the lead melody with driving low-end punch via excellent production finesse. Another fantastic creation from Soundwave to add to a genuinely impressive discography, a producer held in the highest regard by SIT and with tracks like this it is easy to see why.

The other half of this release is in the shape of the Matt Mancid remix. Mathias backs up his recent remix of Airborne Angel's Again with another stellar rework. He takes the track down a truly unique path, brilliantly infusing both of his uplifting and progressive styles. This remix is a real stand out track, perfectly blending two different styles with complete finesse. 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.
