There should be no hesitation for any trance (or dance music) fan in grabbing this instantly. Some 13 years after it's first release, the timeless classics from Solarstone not only defined an era, but a whole genre and is still one of the best loved anthems ever produced. Four new mixes come via Captivating Sounds kicking off with (our favourite) from the man himself on his aptly penned Pure mix, a subtle warming and freshening up to the modern day while keeping all the original beauty and emotiveness. Antillas & Dankann keep simplicity at the heart with a gentle deeper rerub, while Thomas Datt delivers a gloriously night uplifting take. A sure fire pleaser, and our essential tune of the moment!
There isn't much much more exciting for trance heads then seeing a new Gaia production announced from the unstoppable Armin Van Buuren, and we have been chomping at the bit in anticipation for this latest for some time. This is punchy, and full throttle with a sexy French vocal and slightly darker chord progressions, with an overall ethereal sound that encapsulates the golden era of big room trance. From '4 Elements' back in 2011, through to the more recent 'Tuvan' and 'Aisha', Gaia has been the jewel in the kings crown and the seductive is already one of our favourites 'J'ai Envie De Toi'.. An un-missable future anthem!!
