The past month has been an absolute killer for Trance music and especially vocal trance with more and more banging tunes being released each week. I’m still planning to write up a long as post with the best of vocal trance recently but haven’t had a chance to do so. But just started listening to A State of Trance episode 427 and a remix of a familiar new tune was played, it was Filo and Peri featuring Aruna’s take on Ashley, beautifully remixed by First State. It combined a beatiful piano score combined with a nice drum beat in the background and finally epic lyrics makes for an excellent song.
Covered under stacked up on lies
To cover hurt
That no one could see through
You played it down
Waiting for her last day to come
So you can breathe again
Oh Ashley, tell me
Have you been lost, have you been jaded
All you loved and all you hated
It’s all on you now
Suddenly won, suddenly golden
To a world that you were solding
Torn in two, now it’s all on you
She lost her smile in the water
But remained the perfect daughter
And you said she never let you down
Another Friday has passed and that means another episode of A State Of Trance, this time 425. I’ve listened to this episode multiple times since downloading it on Friday morning and I think it’s magnificent. Heaps of vocal type tracks and a couple which remind me of Godskicthen last week (oh how I wish it was still October 4). My favourites this week are Waiting by Dash Berlin ft. Emma Hewitt, Novastar and Ferry Corsten’s Because, BT Ft. Jes’ Every other way. Also loving Cosmic Gate’s Under your spell, Anjunabeach by Above and Beyond Garden State by DJ Eco ft. Marcie and a few more. Almost the whole list this week is incredible. It also appears that there is a book by Armin, recently translated from Dutch, someone please buy it for me, haha.

One of my favourite tunes at the moment is Still Alive by Lisa Miskovsky, it’s one of the songs on the Mirror’s Edge sound track (Mirror’s Edge is a recently released computer game). Very nice song with beautiful lyrics, the original is nice to listen to and very relaxing, my favourite remixes would be Teddybear’s remix, Paul Van Dyk’s remix and the Raver rework, each with their own unique sounds and merit. Included below is the video for Paul Van Dyk’s remix, I’m hoping one of these mixes is played at Trance Energy as it’d be a wicked tune to play in a big room environment.
Lyrics are below:
You have changed,
I have changed.
Just like you,
Just like you.
For how long,
For how long?
Must I wait,
I know there’s something wrong.
Your concrete heart isn’t beating,
And you’ve tried to,
Make it come alive.
Just red lights,
Now I’m here to rescue you.
