About Us

Stories in Trance. Our objective is just that. Great music is about conveying a message, an emotion, a story.

Created in December 2009 by Matt & Thomas Carter, and independently run, Stories In Trance is a digital trance music label based in Leeds, England. We have been listening to trance since the mid 1990's, immediately connecting and identifying with the energy, infectious melodies and creativity of music that inspires the soul, and it stirred something inside us both that would become part of who we are. From there on, trance was the soundtrack to our lives.

Over fifteen years, 2000 vinyls and thousands of digital downloads later, Stories In Trance was born. We decided to put something back into a scene that has given us so much pleasure, but want to run our label free from the shackles of sub-genres and obsessions with what category our offerings fall into. This is just about good music, and if that is the sole focus of the listener it will find those who can judge and enjoy on a track's individuality and merits alone. We do things a little differently at SIT. Yes, there is no specific social media presence, we instead focus on getting our music to you the listener through our content being available to stream and download on a range of global media platforms. And that content, spanning over 11 years and over 180 releases, is testament that our way of doing things has left its mark on the trance scene.  

Alongside the label, there is also the long running show 'Stories In Trance- The Chapters'. Originally it took pride of place alongside shows from Ferry Corsten, Paul Van Dyk, Judge Jules and several other bit hitters on Mugasha.com, from July 2010 until January 2012. After the demise of that platform, we returned the show on Soundcloud and Mixcloud in May 2015, allowing us to showcase all that we believe is great and imaginative about this genre, from rare and classic tracks from back in the day right through to the very best of now.

And so here we are. Free from restraint, and working with our artists in an ethical and positive manner, Stories In Trance continues to forge its own path, telling it's own story. One we hope you can connect with.

Stories In Trance is always looking for imaginative and talented producers who can add something special to our label, so if you have material that you feel may be of interest then please get in touch.
