One of the big success stories from last year was US based producer Shogun, who followed releases on Monster Tunes by joining Armin Van Buuren's empire, and subsequently playing at the recent ASOT milestone event as part of Beyond Wonderland in LA. His production game is what makes him stand above the pack and this latest in Armind is prime example with not one, but two fresh tracks packed full of melodic goodness. Both 'Amplify' and '550' are uplifting, and warm peaktime fillers with the later taking a slightly darker route with its tech-trance influence and minor chord structure.. Trust us, 2012 belongs to this man!!
Very few labels are as rich in trance history as the iconic Lost Language, who for over decade have delivered some of the biggest and best releases across the genre spectrum. The latest comes from past heroes Tilt, and it's a magical, musical experience with a captivating vocal. As always with this label, its one for the purists, although they bring some great remixes to tick all boxes. Notably the housier cut from Peter Martin and Delirium Funks' stripped back alternative..
