"Must Be the Love" (Preview) - Arty, Nadia Ali, & BT 

We all know "No Arty No Party," but with the production prowess of veteran BT and dreamy vocals of Nadia Ali thrown into the mix, this track could be nothing short of perfection (and something we're hugely excited about). Constantly blurring the lines between the Anjunabeats Trance sound and uplifting Progressive House, Arty consistently produces musical gold, and is easily in my top three just for the true brilliance of his original productions. Nadia Ali's voice has been and example of perfection in dance music vocals for years, so this collaboration is a huge deal for Arty and something that may catapult his career. On top of that this track has been huge on the internet since he first previewed it in sets, so I wouldn't be surprised if it graced the top of the radio charts upon its official Beatport release September 17. The official preview can be listened to here

Triple Stacked Trance Tuesday

Still With Me - Tritonal (Seven Lions Remix)

The original Tritonal track has been around on the Beatport charts for some time, but it is obviously a favorite when it comes to remixes. When I first heard Seven Lions was going to remix the heavenly vocals of Christina Soto - I was a bit curious. How would Seven Lion's dubstep feel mesh with the airy and ethereal vocals of Christina Soto? To my surprise; they go together better than salt and pepper. With the building, beautiful melody Tritonal lays down, Seven Lions only adds a more dramatic accompaniment. Before I knew it - this track was number 19 on Beatport's dubstep charts. When it comes to rising producers, I can assure you that you will be seeing more and more of Seven Lions since he is so great at meshing two completely different styles of electronic music together.

Monolith (Maor Levi Remix)- Andrew Bayer

Andrew Bayer is certainly one of the most underrated producers in Trance right now. Although he reserves a style of Trance all to his own, he can create some amazing sound environments for EDM lovers everywhere to appreciate. Paired with the funky style of Maor Levi, the track would no doubt become a wonderful blend of funky and fresh Trance music. Monolith is one of my favorite tracks on Andrew Bayer's record It's Artificial (which I highly recommend any Trance lover to own), so when I saw that Maor Levi was remixing a track of his- I got very excited. Although the track may appear to be "toned down" to some Andrew Bayer lovers, I am in love with it. Andrew Bayer is not the easiest producer to mix into sets, and with this mix I feel I might get to hear a little more of him. By blending their styles together, Maor Levi and Andrew Bayer have reached a unique balance between innovative and funky - and it works great. 

"Golden Oldie"

Preface: Trance has become very Progressive. While that is good, just like with any craft we must look back and see the fundamentals in order to truly appreciate the art that Trance music can be. Besides, a lot of these tracks I can promise you will occur in sets by big names, and lets be honest - who wants to be the only one that doesn't know all the words? 

Love Comes Again - Tiesto feat. BT

A long time ago, (well, not so long, but for EDM it was a while ago) Tiesto was a Trance producer. In fact, a lot of people used to refer to him as a "King" of Trance. At the time, there was a very good reason for that. I remember being young and holding a Elements of Life CD in my hands and thinking it was the greatest thing ever. His music at the time was revolutionary and it hit Tranceheads across the world. One of my favorite aspects of Tiesto's trance were his vocals and lyrics, which weren't like those of your average song. They were complex yet simple messages through music. Accompanied by his signature sound, the lyrics made sure to plant something into your brain that just would not come out. "Love Comes Again" is a signature track by him, and if you don't know it, it's about time. I've heard this track recently even, so its relevancy still lives on. The message of the song is a gorgeous one, and I encourage you to learn the lyrics. Because even though Tiesto's gone to House, we can always be sure that "love will come again."
