Exclusive: "Shadows" - Astrix & Simon Patterson (Original Mix)

Astrix and Simon Patterson, two of my favorite DJs at the moment just released the full mix of "Shadows," and it kills. The original mix pours out with a haunted, space-travel essence that truly combines the sharpened skills of both producers. Astrix's trademark otherworldly sound merges with the brooding quality of Patterson's productions to create a straining monster of a track that is extreme in every sense of the word. While the sinister feeling "Shadows" gives off is not quite adventurous, the track is intricately layered and a delight to get lost in.

"Allure" (Original Mix) - Relaunch

Tracks like Relaunch's "Allure" are like needles in the haystack. With a bassline that takes its time, this is not your run-of-the-mill, high energy Trance number, but that's what makes it all the more special. Combining an electric guitar section with a psychedelic undertone, this one forces you to soak it all in from every inch of your skin. As a release on John 00 Fleming's J00F Recordings, "Allure" is remarkable both as a radically different manifestation of Trance music and as a marvel of audio that will catch you in a standstill.

"Unnatural" (Original Mix) - Major7 & Capital Monkey

Major7 and Capital Monkey's harrowing summer banger is more than just a back-breaking Psy-Trance tune. With the waves from Goa slowly joining the current of the Progressive psychedelic sound being adopted by many European DJs, we get tracks like this that defy the experience of any particular genre. "Unnatural" commences with a deceitfully slow synth line that soons get cut off by a tempestuous Trance bassline. But that's not the end of it - once the song truly peaks we get slashes of bass that take the tempo down a notch and the hysteria to its ultimate apex. Grab your copy today off of Banel's masterfully compiled 25 year anniversary album!

Music For Your Morning: Liquid Soul Summer Mix 2013

I know it's hard to start my day listening to hard bass music, though I will admit Doctor P "Big Boss" used to be my go-to get in the zone morning anthem. This fine morning I present you with one of the finest liquid mixes I've ever heard from none other than the appropriately named Liquid Soul. Switzerland isn't usually a name we associate with dance music like other European countries, but Zürich has produced quite a jewel of a producer. There's something special about music that loosens your tensions but gets you grooving at the same time, and this guy has absolutely mastered in it. Whether you want to call it "Progressive Liquid D&B" or Psy-Trance he really is up to something different, especially when you realize that a lot of these tracks are also his own productions. Hold on because Nicola Capobianco is about to swim you through the ethers of audio.

Track of the Day: "Musical Dream" (Original Mix) - Invortex

With mainstream Trance becoming meshing more and more with Deep House and Electro, the sound of the underground is taking a wonderfully psychedelic turn. At underground events from the outskirts of LA to the deserts of Arizona the side stage vibes are being dominated by the harder, hallucinatory sound of psy-Trance. With mushroomy bass and kaleidoscopic transitions the genre lends itself perfectly to a night out dancing under the stars, giving users a vigorous 140 BPM beat to exhaust themselves to before fading out and allowing for short spurts of recovery. A quick listen to Invortex's past uploads makes it clear that this 19 year old Israeli producer has an aptitude for synergy between the enervating basslines that drive the harder styles of Trance music and the turbulent bass that has the nation in a frenzy. Grab the free download and enjoy!
