ASOT 182 is one of my favourite episodes of the #1 globally-listened-to radio show. And track #9 happens to always bring up a smile on my face whenever I hear it. Crossroads is like love at first sight – so beautiful and so amorous, you can actually make love to it, LOL! But on a serious … Continue reading Rio Addicts – Crossroads
Mike Saint-Jules might have just outdid himself with the release of his colossal Summerlives. Vocal cream of 2011, the full and luscious tune melts my soul into a sea of bliss.

Saint X feat. Sandel – Summerlives
Simply the most intense tune ever – this shit instantly blew my mind when I first heard it on Durand’s radio show. I can guarantee that once you start listening, you’ll easily point out that this is nothing short of an anthem! The synth line and Aneym’s vocals in Follow You are light years away from any tune … Continue reading Nitrous Oxide feat. Aneym – Follow You (Craving & Howe Remix)
All I would like to say is that this tune is pure beauty. I happened to discover it in Gabriel & Dresden’s super compilation Bloom. A deep dark bass line, with a wonderful shimmering melody to complement it. The break is so lush, it takes you on a journey, and in my case, always gives … Continue reading Audioholics – External Key
Released last year, this tune was recommended to me by my colleague whose also good friends. Right when I was just about to mess up myself in huge amounts of code, this tune quickly pulled me out of it and there I was, sitting and daydreaming while looping this beautiful piece of musical engineering over … Continue reading Benny Benassi feat. Kelis, Apl.De.Ap & Jean-Baptiste – Spaceship (EDX’s Dubai Skyline Remix)

Ko Tapu (or Khau Tapu) is an exotic islet in one of Thailand’s national parks. The track here is as exotic as its name with varying degrees of mellow, manipulated perfectly to create a full sound that you can lay back in. This tune is sex – that’s the only way I am able describe it. Perfect … Continue reading David Forbes & Alan Nimmo – Ko Tapu
Anthem alert! Anthem alert! Anthem alert! Top Dutch talents, Armin and Ferry had rigged the dance floors back in 2001 with their massive collaborative effort Exhale. And almost a decade later, they get together again to completely devastate the floors this time. My last complete week has been full of Minack. Hope my neighbours like this track! … Continue reading Armin van Buuren vs. Ferry Corsten – Minack
I have a habit of loading my entire music collection in one single playlist and playing them on random. This is how I happened to discover this beautiful track which instantly blew me away. And this is ten years old, woah! Where was I and how did I manage to miss this gem? Sad really, … Continue reading Kyau vs. Albert – Outside
The plethora of awesome new tunes releasing everyday is overwhelming. A lot of times I find comfort in the swarm of those early tracks which were responsible for my full-time loyalty to trance music. Wherever You Are was certainly one among those tracks. The melodic simplicity and the slow pace of the tune really gets … Continue reading Laava – Wherever You Are (I Feel Love) (Pulsedriver Remix)
The vocals are just ravishing – Antonia sings but never screams and her voice fits perfectly with the rest of the tune which is brilliantly crafted by David Forbes. Unlike others, this tune doesn’t demand you dance, but rather persuades, cajoles and entices you to the dance floor. Stark example of what both genres – … Continue reading David Forbes feat. Antonia Lucas – Because Of You
Rachael Starr on production + vocals here delivers an anthem of mammoth proportions. Moonbeam take the tune to a completely different level altogether with their trademark dark progressive and heavy industrial sound. Impeccable stuff guaranteed to take those on the dance floor for another banging trip.
I was expecting 18th May of 2008 to be just another Sunday, just when out of nowhere she called me up and asked me to meet up and watch the sunset together.

Max Graham at his best here with his fantastic production Does She Know Yet? Probably the most exciting progressive tune, this one is straight up from early last year. Contemporary, uplifting and progressive are the tags here. The synth work will trip the shit out of you!
A rich atmospheric dark trancer with vapourising female vocals that smoulder with sensual emotions. As the track glides effortlessly along, you’re sure to get a trippy time on those late-night drives in the city. This awe-inspiring track might just be the reason for those goosebumps lately. And yes Maor is only 17.
A melody to kill for. Being anticipated since a long time as one of the biggest tunes of 2007, The Sunlight finally gets its release on Ferry’s Flashover Recordings. Listen to this tune countless times and you still won’t be able to find a single disappointing thing about it; it’s original, powerful, melodic and has that special … Continue reading Breakfast – The Sunlight
