Track of the week

Random picks from my all-time favourite tracks, coming out on Saturdays.

Track of the week: “Passing Clouds” (Ovnimoon Remix)

Ovnimoon’s music certainly has a special place in my DJ collection and also such a huge inspiration for my productions as well. When I listening to Ovnimoon, I finally feel that the Psytrance genre has its name for a reason, it really puts you in a trance state.

Here is the remix taken from his album in 2015:

Artist Dual Resonance
Title Passing Clouds (Ovnimoon Remix)
Release Holistic
Label Ovnimoon Records
Year 2015
BPM 140
Key Fm
Jul 22   Psytrance   Track of the week

Track of the week: “The Unfinished”

Airwave is truly one of the best Trance music producers alive, every track of him is a musical masterpiece. This track has lush strings but I like that it stays deep, no cheesy hands-up moments here. Pure underground.

Artist Airwave
Title The Unfinished (Original Mix)
Label Bonzai Progressive
Year 2017
BPM 130
Key A#m
Jul 15   Progressive Trance   Track of the week

Track of the week: “Here & Now” (Micky Noise Remix)

I don’t usually get into tracks with the vocal like this, but Micky Noise absolutely nailed this remix. It has that old-school Full-on vibe similar to Chakra, Alternative Control, Propser etc which I like a lot. So much energy here!

I heard this track as an ID at Global Trance Grooves 10-year anniversary in 2013, and nothing since then — no official release, no info. I asked Micky Noise about it but didn’t get a reply so far. I’m really curious what happened to this remix and why it even was pulled off from SoundCloud, maybe some of you guys have any info on that? The comment section is open.

Artist Simon Patterson ft. Sarah Howells

Track of the week: “Little Earth”

My track of the week series would not be complete without a track from Lyktum (formerly Lyctum), this guy’s production is outstanding. The sound design and the musical components are so good and refreshing.

As far as I know he’s currently working on a new album which I can’t wait to hear, and in the meantime, here is the track from his debut album back from 2012.

Artist Lyctum
Title Little Earth (Original Mix)
Release Tales From The Universe
Label Yellow Sunshine Explosion
Year 2012
BPM 136

Track of the week: “Slap It”

Fantastic piece of a proper Progressive Trance known as a soundtrack to the Zion party scene in Matrix Reloaded. This track doesn’t have that level of details as nowadays’ production, but it certainly has some magic feeling. Or maybe it just a nostalgia? Well, I hope I’m not that old yet.

Artist Fluke
Title Slap It (Untitled No.3)
Label Appalooso
Year 2001
BPM 135
Key Em

Track of the week: “Mutation”

I’m not a big fan of Offbeat Progressive, but this track so masterfully crafted so I couldn’t resist. The production quality, the groove, and the dark theme are amazing.

Artist Egorythmia & Static Movement
Title Mutation (Original Mix)
Label Iono Music
Year 2017
BPM 140
Key D#m

Listen also to this track in the latest Rave Podcast.

Track of the week: “Strum” (Cid Inc Remix)

When it comes to proper Progressive House, a beautiful, deep, and hypnotic music, there is a one man always in my mind — Cid Inc. Somehow his music connects on a personal level; it’s safe to say that I like every track of him, which frankly is quite rare to me.

Artist Draso
Title Strum (Cid Inc Remix)
Label Wide Angle Recordings
Year 2016
BPM 124
Key Em

P.S. Compare this remix to the original mix. Cid Inc totally nailed it.

Track of the week: “Plasma”

This track is easily one of my all-time favourites records of the late 90’s. Such an incredible energy and acid lines, I remember raving at this tune was insane. Surprisingly, not many people aware of it even among old Goa Trance fans, so hopefully this will shed some light.

Artist Radiotrance
Title Plasma (Original Mix)
Release The Russian E.P.
Label Transient Records
Year 1997
BPM 145
Key Gm

P.S. Listen also to Plasma (Unreleased Breaks Mix) in my Summer Solstice Mix at 17:30.

P.P.S. Watch also official video clip that has been broadcasted on a national TV in 97, filmed at abandoned atomic reactor. I doubt you’ll see anything like that in today’s television.

May 27   Goa Trance   Track of the week

Track of the week: “Salvation Slumberland”

Whirloop is one of those artists whose music doesn’t fit any particular subgenre’s standard, it’s a musical journey that flows in a beautiful and unpredictable way. Such a shame Whirloop no longer in business, I would keen to hear more from him.

Track of the week: “The Prophecy”

Today’s track of the week is the ultimate classic, one of my all-time favourite track from Astral Projection. Released in 2006, this track sounds fresh even today.
