SIT 152 Arthur Valiev - Stavropol


SIT 152 Arthur Valiev - Stavropol

Released on Friday 29th September 2017.

Stories In Trance present SIT 152 by Arthur Valiev with the three track single Stavropol.

First up is the original, by a producer who is no stranger to SIT but maybe the name is -
 Arthur Valiev, better known to us as Vaali. Arthur produces his first track under his own name and to mark the occasion it is named in honour of his home city Stavropol. The name may be unfamiliar but the qualities we have become accustomed to from Vaali's productions are all right here in this track. Again he demonstrates a vast array of pure natural talent with this truly unique piece, perfectly blending the sublime melodic lead against lush, driving mids and lows, all perfectly complimented by beautiful atmospheric layering. Another brilliant piece of trance to add to Arthur's epic discography.

The first of two remixes comes from Abide. Hailing from Slovakia, Abide makes his second appearance on SIT following on from his fantastic remix of Basil XM's Prisma (SIT 150 Anthem). With his remix he uses all the brilliance of the original and perfectly blends it with his own production technique to create a superb version with power, energy and emotion. This is a great track.  

Perfectly rounding off the release is the I5land remix. Czech producer Ludek Simcik (under his now familiar I5land moniker) follows on from his last appearance on SIT - his excellent remix of Sanglare's Incredible (SIT 151) - with a fabulous remix. His use of deep low-end power whilst keeping the melodic and atmospheric feel of the original is nothing short of class, additionally served by well defined piano layering and an ever interesting and evolving structure throughout. I5land at his very best! 

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.

SIT 151 Sanglare - Incredible


SIT 151 Sanglare - Incredible

Released on Friday 7th July 2017

Stories In Trance present SIT 151 by Sanglare with the three track single Incredible, including Original, Max Stealthy & I5land mixes.

Up first is the original mix. On the back of their long awaited return to production with SIT (their superb original track Punchy - SIT 144), Sanglare followed that with a fine remix of I5land's Word Of Interest and now are back with another original creation. Using the lead melody to great effect whilst perfectly complimenting them with deep, textured mids and bass, they are blended together perfectly into a fantastically melodic and euphoric track that is perfectly finished off by the mastering excellence of SIT's own Dan Garton.

The first of two remixes comes from Stories In Trance legend Max Stealthy. Max backs up his most recent appearance on SIT, his collaboration with Triumvirate on Pororoca (SIT 147), with this superb remix. As with all of Max's productions the composition is second to none, using the lead melody  to great effect with subtle yet potent usage of beautiful and euphoric atmospheric layering all making a brilliant remix. Another fabulous production from one of our very favourite artists, and a real standout track for 2017.

The second of two remixes comes from I5land. Czech producer Ludek Simcik (under his now familiar I5land moniker) follows on from his last appearance on SIT - his excellent original Word Of Interest (SIT 149) - with a great remix. He uses a powerful driving low-end whilst keeping a melodic and uplifting feel of the original, complimented by well defined piano and atmospheric layering and an ever interesting and evolving structure throughout. Trance at it's very best! 

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.

SIT 150 Basil XM - Prisma (SIT 150 Anthem)


SIT 150 Basil XM - Prisma (SIT 150 Anthem)

Released on Friday 30th June 2017.

SIT 150 by Basil XM with the four track single Prisma (SIT 150 Anthem), including Original, Abide, & Danny Legatto mixes.

After 7 years Stories In Trance hits the 150 mark and to celebrate we have a very special track by an extremely talented producer.

Leading off is the Original mix. Basil XM makes his first original appearance after several excellent remixes on SIT, most recently his version of Thunderwolf's 4 Asia. Continuing with his trademark uplifting style of his previous work he's created an instantly recognisable lead melody, superb atmosphere, powerful low-end drive and crystal clear percussion. A seminal track to mark a massively significant landmark for SIT.

The first remix comes from Abide. Hailing from Slovakia, Abide makes his first appearance on SIT. He is a producer we have admired for some time having made several appearances on some of trance's most notable labels so we were delighted to get him on-board with this remix. And with the quality of his work it's easy to see why, perfectly illustrated again here. With his remix he uses all the brilliance of the original and perfectly blends it with his own production technique to create a fantastic version, with power, energy and emotion, this is a great track.  

The final version comes from Danny Legatto. Polish producer Danny Legatto (AKA Roman Korbut) makes his fourth appearance on SIT following on from his fabulous remix of I5land's Word Of Interest (SIT 149). Danny sticks to his now well honed uplifting style whilst adding his own energetic touches to the piece. He uses the lead to great effect, perfectly complimenting the euphoric feel of the original with beautifully emotive layering. 

A nod of appreciation to SIT's own Dan Garton who's mastering excellence put the finishing touches to the Original and Abide mixes on this most special of releases.

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.

SIT 149 I5land - Word Of Interest


SIT 149 I5land - Word Of Interest

Released on Friday 14th April 2017.

This is Stories In Trance, and as our legacy continues to unfold we give you SIT 149 by I5land with the three track single Word Of Interest, including the Original and remixes from Danny Legatto & Sanglare.

As is proper, we kick things off with the original mix. Czech producer Ludek Simcik (under his now familiar I5land moniker) follows on from his last appearance on SIT - a cracking remix of Vince Schuld's Places We've Never Seen  (SIT 141) - with a great original production. He uses a powerful driving low-end whilst keeping a melodic and uplifting feel, complimented by well defined piano and atmospheric layering keeping the track evolving throughout. Trance at it's very best! 

The first remix on this release comes from Danny Legatto. Polish producer Danny Legatto (AKA Roman Korbut) makes his third appearance on SIT following on from his fabulous remix of Craig London's 7 Symbols (SIT 140). Danny sticks to his now well honed uplifting style whilst adding his own energetic touches to the piece. He uses the lead to great effect, perfectly complimenting the melodic feel of the original with beautifully emotive layering. Another fantastic production to add to Danny's ever growing reputation.

Finishing off the release is the Sanglare remix. On the back of their long awaited return to production with SIT, their superb original track Punchy (SIT 144), Sanglare follow that with a great remix. Using all the best bits of the original, whilst perfectly complimenting them with deep, textured mids and bass, they are blended together expertly into a fantastically melodic and euphoric track. It's good to have them back, and with trance like this it is easy to see why. 

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.

SIT 148 Airborne Angel - The Arctic Sunrise EP


SIT 148 Airborne Angel - The Arctic Sunrise EP

Released on Friday 7th April 2017.

Stories In Trance are extremely proud to present SIT 148 by Airborne Angel with the four track Arctic Sunrise EP.

Airborne Angel (Gustaf Westin) will forever be held in the highest regard by all at SIT, with his track Apollo starting our label's journey in superlative style back in the summer of 2010. His fantastic work continued to grace Stories In Trance over the years and was met with acclaim from DJ's, fellow producers and trance fans alike. The mixture of instantly memorable lead melodies and the unmistakable production finesse always proved to be a winning combination within the trance scene. Nearly four years since his last appearance on SIT - his remix of Skywell's Awakening (SIT 89), Airborne Angel is back with a new EP!

Up first is the original mix of Arctic Sunrise and what a way to reintroduce himself to the trance scene. This track is unmistakably Airborne Angel, expertly blended with some new production touches, resulting in what is sure to be among the best tracks of 2017.

Secondly is Gustaf's Brake Force mix of Arctic Sunrise. This track perfectly balances all the brilliance of the original along with the classic uplifting style of Gustaf's previous work on SIT. Something extremely special indeed, and acts as a great reminder of when we first found Airborne Angel's early work on Nu-Depth and Levare before we were lucky enough to start showcasing his work here on Stories In Trance.

The third part of the EP is Call It Faith. This track is similar to his latter work on SIT, namely the two remixes of Skywell's Gothenburg and Awakening, and nicely illustrates his creativity and diversity as a producer. A fantastic lead melody is combined brilliantly with a beautiful atmosphere, driving low-end power and energetic percussion.

The final part of the EP comes in the shape of Letters. More of the same Airborne Angel excellence, an instantly recognisable lead melody set superbly with all the refined underpinnings and production garnish that make his work so good. This EP will certainly be one of the best releases of 2017 and is something we are very proud to have on SIT.

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.

SIT 147 Max Stealthy & Triumvirate - Pororoca


SIT 147 Max Stealthy & Triumvirate - Pororoca

Released Friday 24th March 2017.

Stories In Trance are delighted to present SIT 147 by Max Stealthy & Triumvirate with the three track single Pororoca.

Stories In Trance legend Max Stealthy and SIT's own Triumvirate decided to embark on a collaboration in late Summer 2016, initially starting with an idea put down by Max, then Triumvirate shaped and structured Max's idea into a full track. After over 30 hours of studio time we proudly present the original mix, and what a final product is served up! The track balances both distinctive elements of the two artists whilst fusing the two individual styles and sounds, ending up with something truly unique. The powerful low end and melodic components offered by Max blend superbly with the atmospheric layering, structure and percussive style of Triumvirate resulting in this uplifting masterpiece. Both artists poured their hearts and souls into this project, bringing their customary production techniques to the table along with both producers adding some completely new and innovate ideas to the overall piece. This is exactly what a collaboration should be with the two artists bringing there best to the project. The end product is sure to be a real standout track in 2017.

The first of two remixes comes from Ico. Ico (John Erikkson) has made five brilliant appearances so far on SIT, most recently his fantastic remix of Konstantin Svilev's Flight (SIT 126). Ico delivers a powerful, energetic, uplifting and emotional trancer with which he expertly combines all the best bits from the original version with his now customary production flavour. This track is epic trance at its finest.

The second remix comes from Oliver Imseng. One of Stories In Trance's favourite producers, Oliver Imseng makes a welcome return to producing with this sublime remix. Oliver's understanding and application of trance production is always a real pleasure to behold, his mastery of the different frequencies really stands out along with his creative musical flair. This remix combines all the excellence of the original with Oliver's style, class and sophistication which all adds up to an energetic, beautiful and extremely well balanced creation. 

A special mention to Dan Garton who not only makes up 33.3% of Triumvirate but his supreme sound engineering skills have been applied perfectly on this release.

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.

SIT 146 Craig London - The Hell Raiser EP


SIT 146 Craig London - The Hell Raiser EP

Released Friday 17th March 2017.

Stories In Trance present SIT 146 by Craig London- this is The Hell Raiser EP.

SIT mainstay Craig London backs up his most recent outing (his remix of Punchy- SIT 144) with this superb three track EP. 

First up is the title track Hell Raiser. This, with Craig's now customary energetic flavours, expertly combines an aggressive and euphoric feel, balanced perfectly with brilliant melodic layering.

Next is Take Me To My High Place, a big room trancer with a powerful kick and trance bass, which is complimented in fine style by clever layering, namely the vocal chop and the attack on the lead melody.

Finishing off the EP is Tunnel Vision. This driving track has a fantastic feel, beautiful atmosphere and dark, uplifting underpinnings. A brilliant way to finish off this awesome EP.

A nod once again to Dan Garton whose mastering excellence has made this release the finished article, polishing the tracks off in the best possible way.

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

SIT 145 Vince Schuld - The Dark Forest EP


SIT 145 Vince Schuld - The Dark Forest EP

Released on Friday 17th February 2017.

Stories In Trance present SIT 145 by Vince Schuld with the four track collection The Dark Forest EP, including Dark Forest, Synthetic Love, I'll Have What She's Having & Dark Forest (Breaks Mix).

Hailing from Chicago USA, Vince Schuld is back with four new originals after his most recent outing for SIT on remix duties for Craig London with Lascia Andare (SIT 142). 

Up first is Dark Forest. This is a euphoric and uplifting trancer with lush mids and powerful low-end drive balanced under beautiful atmospheric feel perfectly embodied with the superb use of vocals. Without question this stands alongside Vince's best creations to date.

Secondly we have Synthetic Love, an extremely well crafted track with a fantastic lead melody expertly supported with potent piano layering and brilliant use of percussive elements that really drives the track on and adds a dynamic sense of progression: a fine track indeed.

The third track is I'll Have What She's Having, an energetic and aggressive track with a purposeful lead melody, a deep rounded kick and powerful use of percussion giving this track a great sense of energy. 

The final track on the EP is the breaks version of Dark Forest, which interestingly was the first version of this track that inspired the resulting trance interpretation. Similar to that in feel, here too we have a warm, well composed emotive piece that again uses the vocals and piano elements to exceptional effect. A sublime track for all you breakbeat and electro fans out there.

That brings to an end The Dark Forest EP and we hope you'll all agree this is something extremely special, a fabulous selection of tracks that add to Vince's ever growing reputation as an excellent producer and a great addition to SIT's catalogue.

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.

SIT 144 Sanglare - Punchy


SIT 144 Sanglare - Punchy

Released on Monday 23rd January 2017.

Stories In Trance proudly present SIT 144 by Sanglare with a three track single Punchy.

Heading up the package is the original mix. Sanglare returned to SIT - after their break from producing of nearly two years - with their recent remix of Vince Schuld's Places We've Never Seen (SIT 141). And to follow that they give us this new original track. Once again they remind us all why they're held in such high regard with a truly stunning creation. Using the lead melody to great effect whilst perfectly complimenting them with deep, textured mids and bass, they are blended together perfectly into a fantastically melodic and euphoric track. These guys really know how to produce big room trance and it is a real bonus to have them back in trance.

Next up is the Craig London remix. SIT mainstay Craig London backs up his most recent outing (Lascia Andare SIT 142) with yet another superb remix. This track, with Craig's now customary energetic flavours, expertly combines an aggressive and euphoric feel, balanced perfectly with the beautiful melodic and atmospheric layering from the original. Having now featured on over 30 releases on SIT the production quality is of the highest order, this is another fantastic composition from without question one of the most talented producers in trance.

Perfectly finishing off the release is the Thunderwolf & Chih remix. 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 outstanding tracks and remixes under the now well established Thunderwolf moniker- the most recent being his original 4 Asia (SIT 143). This time he collaborates with his protege, fellow countryman Hsing-Chih Chen, AKA Chih. Together they take the remix down an aggressive yet uplifting route with the end result being something really special indeed. Superbly crafted melodic components are enhanced further by rich atmospheric effects and a deep bass and kick. A fabulously creative rethink of the original.

A quick nod of approval as always to our own Dan Garton, who's mastering skills have perfectly finished off all three tracks on this release, another demonstration of his sensational sound engineering talents.

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.
