Woke up this morning to listen to ASOT 523 and this headbanger comes on as the first track and it’s a beauty, something about mashing Coldplay and electronic beats which always seems to work. Swedish House Mafia have done it again with another tune to be played over and over at festivals all over the world.
Went through my music folder to find some tunes to run along to and came across a rather old compilation, Global Gathering ’05. This song’s the first track from the second CD and I heard this song again for a long time and just thought wow, this stuff was amazing. Such a mellow and beautiful tune.
Might go through my song collection some more and dig up some old gems. So nostalgic.
This one’s a bit of an oldie, but just heard it and remembered how nice a song it is. Jennifer’s voice is just one of the best in the trance scene and it adds a lot to the song. A song like this just gives me that euphoric feeling and makes me glad that I love trance music, just the plain versatility of having calm relaxing tunes such as this to heavy driving trance anthems which just make your feet wanna move. Another nice mix of this tune is Retrobyte’s Bounce Back remix.
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.
Here’s a sweet tune recently released by Dash Berline with Cert, Mitiska & Jaren, awesome piano melody and chilling vocals, quite a sad tone towards it though but quite appropriate considering the lyrics. Been listening to this almost non stop and seems to be quite popular on Armin Van Buuren’s A State of Trance radio show too with multiple plays over a few weeks. Dash Berlin has also made some other sweet tunes like You Never Said and Sky Falls Down which are both worth obtaining. Here’s a vid of the song below and lyrics below that.
You stole a kiss and stole my heart,
Mmade me a fool right from the start.
It wouldn’t have been so bad except,
This little plan, it fell apart.
If I were you,
I’d dare not speak.
I’d run like hell,
In hopes of seeing tomorrow
It’s such a travesty
The way you say our love should be
Yeah, such a tragedy
Think you can just break my heart and leave me
Well you better run
Oh, man on the run
Playing for fun
Wind me up
Leave me undone
