Track of the week: Salvia Divinorum

E-Clip is no doubt one of my favourite artist and a big inspiration to me, his production always innovative. We’ll certainly see more of him later in this blog, but now I’ll post one of his first releases that became iconic.

Love this game of build-ups and drops here, that moment at 4:51 and another one 8 bars later especially.

Track of the week: Sharks & Laser Beams (Manmachine Remix)

You probably know by now that I’m a big fan of Manmachine. This track has been a secret weapon in my DJ sets for quite some time and I don’t think I’ll remove it from my crate anytime soon. Such a banger, loving it.

Track of the week: Tempest (Union Jack Remix)

To me, there is no any other Trance producer and label that influenced me that much in the ‘90s as Simon Berry and his Platipus Records. Both of his projects, Union Jack and Art Of Trance, are the definition of a proper old-school Trance music to me.

I’ll certainly post more from Platipus later in this series, but for now, let’s take a listen to this fast-paced Acid Trance classic.

Track of the week: Diablo

What a nice track here, love the slow build-up and that roaring sub-bass at 3:37. And those vox bits in the breakdown really adds some spicy. This is exactly the type of music I like to have on my running playlist.

It’s funny how Junodownload tagged it as “Minimal/Tech House” whilst to me, it’s a proper driving Progressive House, perhaps even on the edge of Trance.

Track of the week: Broken Promise

Sometimes I enjoy listening to music that doesn’t have gated leads, acid riffs, twisted squelches, and cinematic effects. Just some cheesy and straightforward tunes in an old-fashioned way. For occasions like this, Shanti is perfect for me.

His music doesn’t fit any particular genre, you can hear something from Balearic House, Euro-Trance, and Full-on. Maybe “Ibiza Full-on”? I’m still not sure, but I’ll put the Full-on tag down below.

Track of the week: The Force

I love Sonic Species since his massive debut album in 2012 and he never disappoints since then. The new track he delivered recently is another blast, a crossover between Psytrance and Fullon with great melodic elements, just the way I like it.

Track of the week: Truffle Hustle

Today’s track of the week features some Techno. Or should I say Prog-Techno? Still not sure how to call this mixture of Progressive House with Techno elements, but anyway, who cares.

Love the roaring bass and the ride cymbals at 2:15. And by the way, this is the vibe I like to have on my running playlist, can’t do it with up-tempo music.

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 is taken from his album in 2015:

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.

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.
