SIT 55 Markus - Smoke Of Glory

SIT 55 Markus - Smoke Of Glory

Released Monday 25th February 2013.

Stories In Trance is happy to present our 55th release by Markus with the four track single Smoke Of Glory.

Up first we have the Radio Edit which is the bite size version of the Bismark remix; all the qualities of the full track in a shorter helping.

The second track on the release is the Bismark remix which doubles as the original. Bismark (Marco Bisegna) was a key part in defining the legacy that was the massive Italian label BXR, along with Mauro Picotto, Gianfranco Bortolotti, Mario Piu and several others. The BXR philosophy is one that we are indebted to, as we emulate its eclectic range of productions and believe in strength through diverse releases. So it is an honour to have Bismark on Stories In Trance. He made his debut for us with his remix of Rominica (SIT #15) and he is back with his sound engineering wizard Andrea Tamashi alongside Marco Angelici to give us Markus. They deliver a progressive monster with a flowing melody infused with sumptuous mids and a deep rich bass generating a track with real atmosphere; this is truly stunning with production values second to none. Bismark is back and the trance scene is certainly a better place for it.

Thirdly we have the fourth appearance on Stories In Trance from talented Hungarians Forenetix (Garry SJ & Peter) with their sublime version. Following on from their remixes of spArk's Clouds Come (SIT #17), Derrick Meyer's Final Goodbye (SIT #23) and Airborne Angel's Perfect State (SIT #24) they hit the mark once again with this excellent rethink. With their 'Airmix' presented here they stay quite close to the original's flowing lines and melody but craft a more uplifting feel which works perfectly with the incredibly versatile lead. This is first-rate evidence that talented producers can reinterpret each others' productions in many different ways.

The fourth version comes from Vinganza. Dutchman Leandro't Jong is one of Stories In Trance's founder members and will forever hold a special place in the legacy that has been created here.  His truly stunning piece La Viola (SIT #2) set the standard high from an early stage in the label's development. His work since has been rare, but three epic remixes have graced the label since in the shape of Max Fishler's The Skyshard (SIT #5),
T Gate's Faith (SIT #8) and most recently Igor Stroom's The Sun (SIT #48) , as well as his collaboration with another of Stories In Trance's favourite producers Max Stealthy with Cloudburst (SIT #35). Once again he puts his unmistakable style on the original transforming it into a pure energetic and uplifting stormer. Using the unforgettable lead with his unique, powerful style, Vinganza once again produces a sublime slice of trance as it should be. Fabulous.

Stories In Trance aims to uncover the most talented and imaginative new producers and team up with some of the more established names in the scene to work together in evolving the sound. This release sticks firmly to our philosophy of showcasing a diverse range of sounds within trance and we hope you'll enjoy the variety of imagination and creativity on offer in this release.
