Happy Holidays From All At SIT!

All of us at Stories In Trance would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!

2015 has been another great year for us with the release of some brilliant tracks and remixes that go up there with the best SIT has offered since our beginnings way back in 2010, so we'd recommend checking out this year's offerings. The year has also seen the return of The Chapters (see tab above for some top-class sets) and the establishment and further development of our well regarded feature Back Track (again, tab above). But we're not going to rest there, as we have plenty more superb offerings in store for 2016, so watch this space.

We would also like to say a massive thank you to all the producers we have worked with this year and everybody who continues to support our project. Without you none of this would be possible

So, as 2015 draws to a close and SIT heads boldly into it's 6th year, we hope you all have a fantastic holiday period, be safe and happy and we'll see you in 2016!

SIT 128 Joren Heelsing - The Cover Of The Night (Re-Covered)

SIT 128 Joren Heelsing - The Cover Of The Night (Re-Covered)

Released on Monday 28th December 2015.

Check out all the tracks on the release with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXm98vM1m-g

Stories In Trance finish off 2015 with SIT 128 by Joren Heelsing with the three track single The Cover Of The Night (Re-Covered).

This is the third release in our back track series and here we add two new remixes to the original which was first released on SIT 9 back in the Summer 2011.

First up we have the Oliver Imseng remix.  It's with great pleasure we welcome back to SIT one of our very favourite producers, returning with his first appearance since Airborne Angel - Apollo (Relaunched) (SIT 50). This remix is some way to mark his return; energy, emotion and a beautifully sophisticated feel all add up to a truly brilliant remix. Oliver's choice selection and reinterpretation of the best bits from the Original expertly blended with his superb production skills and brought to life with the supreme mastering touch of Dan Garton culminates into one of the very best tracks of 2015! This is an absolute must have for any trance DJ or fan alike, and one that deserves serious attention.

Following Oliver's epic is the Craig London remix, and the standard doesn’t drop off as this is another fantastic rethink of the acclaimed original. Craig backs up his most recent remix of Airborne Angel's Perfect State (Revisited) (SIT 121) with another sublime production. He takes his version down his customary energetic path using all the melodic excellence of the original perfectly crafted with an aggressive yet melodic feel, all within the overall production quality one now expects from Craig London’s outings on Stories In Trance. Perfectly finished off by the mastering skills of Dan Garton, this is another fabulous offering from this very talented producer.

Rounding off the release is the Original mix of The Cover Of The Night. A potent track that hasn’t aged at all, balancing a well defined, memorable lead melody against strong mids and a powerful bassline. Simple, solid elements combined with talent often gives the best results, and this is no exception, having gained the attention of the world's number one DJ Armin Van Buuren, who exclusively debuted the track in ASOT episode 497 in 2011. Grab your copy of this gem if you missed it first time around.

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 127 Vince Schuld - Distance Means Nothing

SIT 127 Vince Schuld - Distance Means Nothing

Released on Friday 20th November 2015.

Check out the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyPRPKP4Jig

Stories In Trance present SIT 127 by Vince Schuld with the three track single Distance Means Nothing.

First up is the Original mix from American newcomer Vince Schuld. Hailing from Chicago, Vince has a rich musical background in various genres but of recent he has turned his attention to his first love of trance music. His first track on SIT is something very special indeed; the attention grabbing lead melody is perfectly supported by warm, well rounded mids and beautiful vocals, driving lows and subtle yet potent percussion. And once again, our in-house mastering guru Dan Garton brings it all to life to finish off this fine production. Look out for more superb tracks from this exciting new artist.

The first remix comes from Russian producer Vaali, who has a vast collection of excellent tracks and remixes on SIT, most recently his imaginative rethink of NA’s Dawn (SIT 124). Vaali once again shows his vast array of talent with this truly unique version: using the original’s strengths to great effect, he perfectly blends a delicate feel with a fast paced, energetic sound and deep, driving mids and lows. The great thing about Vaali's productions is there is no genre limitations to his expressive output and he always offers up something wonderful. Another sensational production to add to Vaali's impressive discography.

Rounding off the package comes the Basil XM remix. Fresh from his most recent appearance on SIT with his stunning rethink of Dawn (SIT 124), Basil is back with another fantastic remix. Returning to the more uplifting style of some of his previous work he uses the instantly infectious lead melody to great effect, along with deep mids, potent low-end force and crystal clear percussion all brilliantly complimented by the mesmerizing vocals and subtle piano layering. After a final polish from the masterful Dan Garton, the end result is a uplifting masterpiece.

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 126 Konstantin Svilev - Flight

SIT 126 Konstantin Svilev - Flight

Released on Friday 30th October 2015.

Check out the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2qVtthUMv4

Stories In Trance give to you our 126th release by Konstantin Svilev with the three track single Flight.

Firstly we have the Original mix from Russia's Konstantin Svilev. Konstantin made his debut with SIT at the start of 2013 and since then has played a big part in the legacy of Stories In Trance with several fine tracks and remixes, most recently with his superb remix of Triumvirate's Still Glow The Embers (SIT 116). He is at his very best again with this energetic track, delivering an uplifting stormer. A short and concise piece, he uses the great lead melody in conjunction with creative layering, clever musical progression and as always he adds his now trademark production flair to the piece and does so in fine style.

Secondly we have the Ico remix. Ico (John Erikkson) has made four fantastic appearances so far on SIT, most recently his seminal remix of Craig London's Falling Down (SIT 95), and after a short break from producing he is once again on top form with this sensational remix. Ico delivers an energetic, uplifting and emotional trancer with which he sublimely weaves all the best bits from the original version into an all round powerhouse of a track whilst subtly adding a delicate feel with the captivating vocals. An absolute must have for all trance enthusiasts and DJ's around the globe.

Thirdly is the NA remix. Suthat Naruenartwanich, under his NA moniker, presents his first remix on SIT following on from two excellent originals Interstellar (SIT 122) and Dawn (SIT 124). But this time out he shows his versatility with a fantastic remix, using the definitive lead melody alongside polished atmospheric mids, all rounded off perfectly by the driving percussion. The end result is fantastic re-interpretation from a very talented new producer.

We must also give a nod of gratitude to our in house mastering guru Dan Garton, whose immense sound engineering and mastering talents are on display on all three tracks on this release.

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 125 Max Stealthy - One Day I Desire (Recharged)

SIT 125 Max Stealthy - One Day I Desire (Recharged)

Released on Friday 23rd October 2015.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mir6kvUcDEs

Stories In Trance present SIT 125 by Max Stealthy with the three track single One Day I Desire (Recharged).

Originally featuring on Max Stealthy's debut release on SIT, the Charge EP (SIT 14) in Autumn 2011, One Day I Desire gets its own release alongside two superb remixes.

First up on the release is the original version.  As with all of Max Stealthy's productions on SIT the composition is second to none, the delicate melody and subtle usage of layering all make up a fine original creation. This track was the perfect way to round off the Charge EP and once again here it stands up to the mark over four years later on its own release.

The reinterpretations begin with Triumvirate's 'Miles Away' remix. Fresh from their latest original release Still Glow The Embers (SIT 116) Triumvirate are back on remix duties with this sensational track. Using the remix pack in the best possible way, they re-imagine the original version with phenomenal results. Restructuring the lead melody, the trance bass and the melodic layering, every element has been expertly re-interpreted with the upmost care and attention. This track has an energetic feel right from the start; powerful, aggressive and emotional, every single second of this piece of music is vital to the overall dynamic. Rich, deep low end power provides the underpinnings which is complimented by a sweeping saw lead melody, fantastic piano layering, and ever evolving percussion which along with the grand, emotive vocals provides the garnish. This remix comes in at under 7 minutes yet has two unique and different euphoric climaxes with individual trance bass movements and bass drops. This very intelligent track is for every true lover of proper trance music.

The second remix comes from Germany's Matt Mancid. On the back of his stellar remix of Triumvirate's Still Glow The Embers (SIT 116) Matt is on remix duties again with another superb offering. He takes the track down a more uplifting path than we are used to with his productions, using all of the original's fantastic components and musical elements to brilliant effect. Then, once our in-house mastering master Dan Garton worked his magic, the finished article shines as a great alternative to the original and once again adds to Matt's ever growing reputation as a top class 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 124 NA - Dawn

Released on Monday 12th October 2015.

Check out all the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kR32_Q1uivQ

This is Stories In Trance, and for your listening pleasure we offer up SIT 124 by NA with the three track single Dawn, including Original, Vaali and Basil XM mixes.

Up first is the original mix from Suthat Naruenartwanich under his NA moniker, presenting his second original production on SIT following on from his debut original Interstellar (SIT 122). Suthat is from a musical background, most notably from travelling around his native Thailand as a session musician as a bass player and he shows off his undoubted musical talent with this track. The definitive lead melody is perfectly complimented by the piano layering and polished atmospheric mids and lows, all rounded off by the superb mastering of our in house engineer Dan Garton . The end result is another stellar original creation from a very talented new producer.

The first remix comes from Russian producer Vaali who has a vast collection of excellent tracks and remixes on SIT, most recently creating an imaginative rethink of Bluebear Project's Nemesis (SIT 118). Vaali once again shows his vast array of talent with this truly unique and creative version: using the original’s strengths to great effect, he perfectly blends a delicate feel with edgier techy sounding effects and deep, driving mids and lows. Another sensational production to add to Vaali's impressive discography.

Rounding off the package comes the Basil XM remix. Fresh from his most recent appearance on SIT with his stunning remix of Airborne Angel's Perfect State (Revisited) (SIT 121), Basil is back with another fantastic remix. Returning to a more progressive style he uses the now instantly recognisable lead melody to great effect, along with deep mids, potent low-end force and crystal clear percussion. After a final polish from the masterful mastering guru Dan Garton the end result is a progressive trance masterpiece, fit to star in any set.

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.

SIT 123 Sakiva - Fire Of Life / Hammer

Released on Monday 5th October 2015.

Check out both tracks with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvrP4x0NlpQ

Stories In Trance are delighted to offer up SIT 123 by Sakiva with the double A-sided single Fire Of Life / Hammer.

After a little break SIT returns with the massive new track Fire Of Life and the re-issue of Hammer. Sakiva (AKA Kirill Saltymakov) makes his second appearance on Stories In Trance after his huge debut release Hammer (SIT 63) in April 2013. Now he is back with another monster track Fire Of Life. The overall composition of the track is first rate, perfectly balanced lows, powerful mids and well defined highs are superbly brought to life by the potent and aggressive lead melody and sublime atmospheric garnish. This is a true big room trancer that will stand up there in any set or mix.

Backing up Fire Of Life is the re-release of Sakiva's debut track Hammer. Without a question Hammer is one of SIT's most notable releases to date so it completely justifies releasing for a second time. This track has a great techy feel with a truly memorable lead melody and some excellent production touches making this a track that really stands out. This is one to really take note of, so if you missed it first time around here is another chance to catch this sensational track.

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.

SIT 122 NA - Interstellar

SIT 122 NA - Interstellar

Released on Monday 10th August 2015.

Check out the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tltzv81Yiz4

Stories In Trance give to you SIT 122 by NA with the three track single Interstellar.

As is customary, up first is the original mix from Suthat Naruenartwanich under his alias NA presenting his debut within the trance scene with the superb Interstellar. Suthat is from a musical background, most notably from travelling around his native Thailand as a session musician as a bass player and he shows off his undoubted musical talent with this track. The immediately recognisable lead melody is perfectly complimented by the piano layering and the polished atmospheric mids and lows. All in all this adds up to a truly excellent track and hopefully marks the start of a fine career within trance from this talented newcomer.

The first 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; spanning from his debut on SIT 3 back in November 2010 (The Last Days Of Summer) right up to his most recent outing – a glorious remix of Triumvirate's Nostalgic Echo (SIT 108) – two tracks that perfectly showcase his exceptional talent. And as one would now expect from Derrick, he delivers the goods again 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 create subtle, clever and well composed productions, evidently a true master of his craft and an artist who we are always proud to feature on Stories In Trance.

Rounding off the release, the final version comes from Roman Katrinesku under his alias Katrik, who makes his third appearance on SIT after his remix of Bluebear Project's Nemesis (SIT 118). This remix adds a more tech-trance feel to the overall uplifting style of the track, expertly underpinned by well rounded low-down power which provides a great back drop to his brilliant use of the melodic parts from the original mix. Another high quality big room trancer from Katrik who shows again his vast potential as a producer of top class trance music.

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.

Re-packaged with all new remixes, the first of these is Airborne Angel's Perfect State. Originally the 24th release on SIT in May 2012 we give to you two new remixes as well as the classic original mix.

The first remix comes from Craig London. Craig backs up his most recent remix of DJ AYK'S Forever Love (SIT 120) with another sublime production. He takes his rethink down his customary energetic path; his version uses all the melodic excellence of the original perfectly reinterpreted within the overall production quality one now expects from Craig London’s outings on Stories In Trance. Yet again a fabulous offering from this very talented producer.

The second remix comes from Basil XM. Fresh from his most recent appearance on SIT with his stunning remix of Katrik’s Emotions (SIT 117), Basil is back with another fantastic remix. Departing from his familiar progressive flavour, this time Basil takes his version down a very energetic and uplifting route, using the now instantly recognizable lead melody to great effect along with driving mids and percussion, culminating in a power trance masterpiece. Another stellar production from a very exciting new artist.

Rounding off the release we have the Original mix. First released in May 2012 this is an epic from start to finish, and without a doubt one of the very best tracks from recent years this is a must have for anyone that missed it first time around or that's new to Airborne Angel's productions.

He takes his rethink down his customary energetic path, with this infectious track using all the melodic excellence of the original perfectly reinterpreted within the overall production quality one now expects from Craig London’s outings on Stories In Trance.

This time he gives us something completely different to his usual style with this uplifting stormer! A perfectly well balanced and melodically strong track is accompanied by his usual fantastic production technique to produce a real masterpiece. With this departure from his usual progressive style he shows the full range of his vast talents; this is a stunning track from Igor, nothing less than one would now expect from this talented and creative artist, who's work we are very proud to showcase here on SIT.

Aziz made his first appearance on SIT with his remix of Another Beginning (SIT 115) under his Elia alias, and here working under his full name he gives us another stellar track. Sticking close to the Original with its uplifting style he elaborates on the already definitive lead melody and harmonic layering with fabulous results. Energy, power and emotion are in full supply in this awesome remix from a very exciting new producer.

The third part of this release is the original mix of Zenith. Yet again Craig delivers with another superb track that has plenty of drive and purpose right from the start, complimented perfectly by the usual melodic quality always on show in Craig's work.

The final part of this release comes from DJ AYK who makes his first appearance on SIT. His career to date has seen him have tracks and remixes on Dirt, Lies & Audio Recordings and Drop2Rise Records. Now he comes to us with this superb remix. Using all the fine melodic components of the original he mixes that with his own unique flavour, namely deep, driving lows and mids that all add up to fantastic production and a perfect way to round off another brilliant release. Look out for more on SIT from this exciting producer in the near future.

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqJd8adY1R8

Triumvirate are back! Stories In Trance are delighted to give you SIT 116 with the three track single Still Glow The Embers.

Fresh from the huge release of Nostalgic Echo (SIT 108) Triumvirate return with the 'Keepers Of The Fire' mix of Still Glow The Embers. With somewhere near 80 studio hours invested in this production no stone has been left unturned with this truly special track. Every element has been expertly crafted, polished and engineered with the upmost care and attention. This track has a grand feel right from the start, powerful, energetic and emotional, this track has it all. Every single second of this piece of music is vital to the overall dynamic, no time wasted, every moment captivating. Rich, deep low end power provides the underpinnings which are complimented by sweeping saws and arps, a stunning piano layer, and aggressive, ever evolving percussion provides the garnish and it is all beautifully complimented by the emotive vocals. No sample packs or stems, every part of this track has been created from scratch. This is for everyone who truly loves all that is great about trance.

The first remix comes from Germany's Matt Mancid. On the back of his stellar remix of Igor Stroom's Yushanly (SIT 109) Matt is on remix duties again with another superb offering. He takes the track down a more progressive path, using all of the original's fantastic components and musical elements to brilliant effect. This offers a great alternative to the original and once again adds to Matt's ever growing reputation as a top class producer.

The third part of this release comes from Russia's Konstantin Svilev. Konstantin made his debut with us at the start of 2013 and since then has played a big part on SIT with several fine tracks and remixes: most recently his remix of Thunderwolf's REborn (SIT 111). He is at his very best again with this energetic and ever developing remix. Musically he remains quite close to the original not only in composition but in style, delivering an uplifting stormer. As always he adds his now trademark production flair to the piece and does so in fine style. By his own admission this is one of Konstantin's very best productions, something very special indeed.

Check out the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rd1wRX0LNg

Stories In Trance continue with SIT 115, and a return for Craig London’s epic Trance Is Here Anthem - Another Beginning.

After the initial release of Craig London's A New Beginning (Trance Is Here Anthem, SIT 107) written in association with the new Trance Is Here brand, all three parties decided to run a remix competition for the track and release the winners. The competition started in December 2014 and ended at the end of January 2015, and during that time a very impressive standard of remixes were entered. After some very careful consideration we decided to release these three remixes.

Up first we have the Basil XM remix. Hailing from Moldova, 19 year old Basil gives us a sublime remix, one that hopefully sets the standard for his future productions. Taking the track down a more progressive route he shows immense production flair using the lead to superb effect along with fantastic atmospheric touches. He has shown in this remix that he is an emerging talent and someone we are excited to work with more at SIT.

The second winner comes from Elia. Sticking closer to the Original with its uplifting style he elaborates on the already definitive lead melody and harmonic layering with fabulous results. Energy, power and emotion are in full supply in this awesome remix, a must for trance fans and DJ's alike.

Rounding off this release is the Fernando T.R. remix. Mexican Fernando Torres Rojas shows genuine musical knowledge with this progressive masterpiece. Brilliant production techniques are on full display here, using the lead in fine style along with beautiful atmospheric layering this is a musical tour de force from a very creative producer.

The ideals behind this release once again reinforce our long standing mantra that if the music's good enough then whoever you are and wherever you are from your creative output can find a home with us.

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.

SIT 114 Thunderwolf - Nothing Will End

Released on Monday 9th March 2015.

Check out both the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mREbq7xRD8

Stories In Trance give to you SIT 114 by Thunderwolf with the two track single Nothing Will End.

First is the Original. One of Taiwan’s finest, Tseng Chih Young made his debut with us in the Summer of 2013, and since then SIT have been proud to present his many superb tracks and remixes under the now well established Thunderwolf moniker; the most recent  being his original REborn (SIT 111) and his remix of Igor Stroom's Lights (SIT 112). This time he takes his newest original track down a more progressive route than the last, and the end result is something really special indeed. Superb melodic components are enhanced further by fantastic atmospheric layering which gives the track a beautiful feel. This is another brilliant creation from a truly excellent producer.

The other half of this potent little package is the Markus Presents Mark Angel's Hard Remix. Marco Angelici (fresh on the back of SIT 113- Summer Memories) turns his hand to a remix for the first time for us, and comes up with a fabulous result. Hailing from Italy you can really feel the influence of the great trance to come from there over the years in his work, with notable audible nods to the incomparable BXR label. He uses all the melodic brilliance from the original, reinterpreted via his own production techniques, and the result is something to be savoured.

SIT 113 Markus Presents Mark Angel - Summer Memories.

Check out all the mixes with the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBOHeHR94Nc

Stories In Trance proudly offer up SIT 113 by Markus Presents Mark Angel with the three track single Summer Memories.

As should always be the way, up first is the Original Mix. Marco Angelici AKA Markus made his first and only appearance so far on SIT with Smoke Of Glory (SIT 55) but now he is back under his new Mark Angel alias with the brilliant Summer Memories. Hailing from Italy you can really hear the influence of all the great trance to come from there over the years, with notable audible nods to the incomparable BXR label. Summer Memories is a musical treat with superb vocals supported by a beautiful melody and fabulous effects and layering. This is a superb track that shows no shortage of creativity and imagination.

The first of two remixes comes from SIT favourite Max Stealthy. His last appearance with us was his truly special version of Zos Van Zindell's Falling Into Darkness (SIT 103) and once again he is on top form with yet another massive remix. Taking this version down a more uplifting route he expertly uses all the melodic components against a punchy low-end and driving mids to awesome effect. Perfectly blending the atmospheric elements which nicely adds substance and depth to the mix, it all comes together superbly in this top class production.

The second remix comes from another SIT icon Craig London. 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 remix of Igor Stroom's Yushanly (SIT 109). Just like Max he takes his version down a more energetic path, with this infectious track using all the melodic excellence from the original Craig finely crafts the memorable vocals to make them a main feature of the track. Nothing less than the quality one now expects with a Craig London production, and is a perfect way to round off another stand-out offering from Stories 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.

SIT 111 Thunderwolf - Reborn.

Released on Monday 5th January 2015.
