Stories In Trance are proud to give you SIT 96 by Vaali with the double A-sided single Gladiator / Purple Blossom.

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 Say What (SIT #93).

Up first here is Gladiator. In this short but truly superb track Vaali makes every second count once again, as is now his distinct style. The sublime lead melody is complimented with sensationally rich mids, underpinned with great effect by a deep driving kick making this an energetic and powerful original from a very creative and talented producer.

Support comes in the form of Purple Blossom and once again it's another fine track from Vaali. The potent bass is complimented by lush, textured mids and a standout lead melody whilst beautiful atmospheric touches put the garnish on this big-room trancer that once again displays all the production excellence we now come to expect from Vaali.

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.

For its encore, Stories In Trance gives you once more Craig London Featuring Lokka with the double A-sided remix single Falling Down.

The original mixes of Falling Down (SIT #90) were released earlier this year and after the huge success that it has had we offer up two more superb remixes to complete the package of this truly significant release.

The first of two remixes 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 Fly Away (SIT #86) - being a perfect illustration of his exceptional talent. Once again he delivers the goods with his usual production excellence - his unmistakable melodic dynamics and expertly polished use of the vocals all amount to a brilliant retake on the original. Derrick always manages to surprise and delight with his inventiveness and supremely well composed productions, a true master of his craft.

Completing this potent two-part reprise we have the Ico remix. Ico (John Erikkson) has made three fantastic appearances so far on SIT, most recently his great version of Thunderwolf’s This Is Our Life (SIT #75) and he is once again on top form with this sensational remix. Ico delivers an energetic, uplifting and emotional trancer with which he sublimely weaves the beautiful vocals and warm progressive melody and mids into an all round powerhouse of a track. This has to be one of the best uplifting vocal tracks in some time and certainly an early contender for one of the best tracks of 2014 - an absolute must have for all trance enthusiasts and DJ's around the globe.

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.

Stories In Trance proudly present SIT 94 by Skywell with the three track single Movements.

First things first, we start with the Original. Swedish producer Skywell (Jonas Skyldeberg) made his production debut in the autumn of 2013 and has since backed that up with several excellent tracks. This time he is back with his third original, Movements. Jonas expertly uses the fine lead melody amidst some stunning layering and effects, which come together brilliantly in this creative and well polished tune. There is no doubt that it is a superb piece of trance and yet another fine example of Skywell's vast talents.

The first remix comes from Craig London. Craig's career to date has seen him make many impressive appearances with us with some fine remixes and originals, most recently with his massive three track The White Balcony EP (SIT #92) as well as his huge track featuring Lokka- Falling Down (SIT #90). Once again Craig is on top form showcasing his vast talents, this time he gives us a creative and unique take on the original. Taking the instantly recognisable lead melody down a more uplifting route, he uses all the qualities of the original and adds his own trademark style making this an excellent mixture of subtlety and energy that results in a real standout remix from a very prolific and talented producer.

The final part of this release comes from Bionique (Aleksandr Voloshin) with his second remix for SIT after his fine remix of Sanglare’s My City (SIT #81). He gives us a perfect illustration of his abilities with this fabulous remix; the great lead melody is backed up with stunning atmospheric touches which combined with the subtle layering make this a terrific track from a very promising producer. Look out for plenty more from Bionique in the months ahead - an artist with lots more to offer.

This is Stories In Trance, and here we present to you SIT 93 by Vaali with the three track single Say What.

In this original every second counts, as now is becoming Vaali's trademark, in this short but truly superb track. The sublime lead melody is backed up with sensational mids, underpinned with great effect by a driving kick making this another fine original from a very creative and talented producer.

Next up is the Jens Jakob remix. Dane Jens made his debut on Stories In Trance with his fantastic track Euphorica (SIT #78) followed by his second original, Grey Cloud (SIT #85). This time Jens turns his abilities to a remix with awesome results. This remix has plenty of energy, power and emotion whilst using the lead melody to stunning effect. The Jens Jakob remix is a real piece of uplifting trance gold and a great variation on the original.

The final part of this release is the Matt Mancid remix. Hailing from Germany, Matt is on remix duty for the third time following his debut for us with an impressive remix of David Surok's Avalon (SIT #62) and sandwiched between that and this was his first original on Stories In Trance, the superbly emotive Anti-Climax (SIT #65) which was book ended by his thrilling remix of Derrick Meyer’s Nostalgia (SIT #72). This remix is a perfect representation of his talents; a beautiful, warm and fantastically well produced piece of trance that once again gives a brilliant alternative to the original.

Once again Craig is on top form showcasing his vast talents, and this time he gives us three excellent and unique tracks.

The first track on the EP is White Balcony. A slight departure from his usual uplifting energy, Craig focuses on a more progressive vibe but yet again his talent shows no bounds. This is a warm and infectious track that ebbs and flows with seamless transitions between the brilliant melody and driving mids and bass.

Up next is Liberar Su Mente. This is an energetic yet subtle production with a beautiful and evocative feel: a truly fine piece of work and another standout track to add to Craig's ever impressive discography.

Rounding things off is Path Of An Angel and what a way to finish this fabulous three track EP. This track combines elements of the previous two, centred around a sublime lead melody and evolves with strong melodic structure - it grabs you from start to finish. This EP is an must for all true trance enthusiasts as it perfectly showcases all that is best about trance and illustrates in fine fashion Craig's creativity and diversity.

Check out all the tracks with the link below:

Stories In Trance happily offer up to you SIT 91 by Vaali with the three track Stars EP.

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 a couple of superb remixes, the most recent of which being Skywell's Awakening (SIT #89). Once again Vaali shows his undoubted talents with three fantastic tracks which create this stand-out EP.

Up first is the title track Stars and what a tune this is: every second counts in this short but truly immense track. The sublime lead melody is backed up with sensational mids, underpinned with great effect by a driving kick making this a very early contender to be one of the strongest productions of 2014.

Secondly comes 2013 named in honour of Vaali's breakthrough year and this track does the title justice. Beautiful piano synths put the garnish on this big-room trancer that once again displays all the production excellence we now come to expect from Vaali.

To round out this superb EP we have Oceans and yet again Vaali delivers the goods with another awesome track. Warm and delicate mids are delightfully complimented by a deep, rich bass set amongst fine production flair. This poignantly rounds out a truly accomplished EP that both Stories In Trance and Arthur are rightfully proud of- a must for any and all trance fans and DJ's alike.

SIT 90 Craig London Featuring Lokka - Falling Down.

Released on Monday 20th January 2014.

Check out all the mixes in the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iU0XDfoejyU

Stories In Trance present to you SIT 90 by Craig London Featuring Lokka with the four track single Falling Down.

Firstly we have the original mix. Craig's career to date has seen him make several impressive appearances with us with some fine remixes and originals, most recently with his track Drop Zone (SIT #87). Once again Craig is on top form showcasing his vast talents, and this time he gives us a more delicate and subtle track using the vocals from Lokka to beautiful effect. Warm and infectious melodies and mids are complimented superbly by the fantastic vocals, which altogether give us a truly fabulous vocal track that stands up there with the very best. Craig had an excellent 2013 and in our opinion is one of the best new producers in the scene, so look out for plenty more from him coming in 2014.

The second offering is the Dub mix, all the melodic qualities of the original for those who prefer it without the vocals.

Next we have the first of two remixes, and this one comes from Stories In Trance favourite Max Stealthy. Fresh from his debut album It's A Matter Of Time (SIT #88) Max is back on remix duties and once again delivers the goods. Taking the track down a more uplifting and energetic route, he uses all the melodic and vocal components to awesome effect. This is a real standout production that perfectly captures the effect of great vocal trance.

The second remix and final track on the release comes in the shape of the Skywell remix. Swedish producer Skywell (Jonas Skyldeberg) made his production debut with his seminal track Gothenburg (SIT #84) and then turned his hand to a remix with awesome results: his sublime remix of Jens Jakob’s Grey Cloud (SIT #85). Proving it was no fluke, his follow up original further enhanced his flourishing reputation, the brilliant Awakening (SIT #89), Jonas expertly uses the fine lead melody amidst the sensational vocals, which come together brilliantly in this creative and well polished remix. There is no doubt that it is a superb piece of trance.

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.
