Review: Having just gone to press with the announcement of forming a new production/dj duo with Markus Schulz "New World Punx", Corsten makes sure there is some solo stuff flying through too. Featuring one of our favorite vocalists in Betsie Larkin, 'Stars' is an instantly captivating treat on both the ears and senses. The extensive remix package kicks of with his own Ferry Fix, in typical style. Moving onto the proggier and musical depth of Magic Islands Roger Shah who brings through the beauty in the vocal. We are loving the cut from Malta's leading pair Tenishia who bring a wicked tech trance flair, no strangers to working with vocals they really rip into this one, mashing tech with prog. Alex O'Rion pushes the tempo and power with his harder hitting taie. Most definitely something for everyone in this package.. Dive on in!
Review: Over the last couple of years Betsie Larkin has steadily risen the ranks to become one of the finest voices in trance, and one which now stands as a name in it's own right. For her next powerful effort on the Flashover off-shoot Premier, she is back the Lange's vocal booth for the gritty 'Obvious', with a driving percussive base and more sinister vocal then normal. Amongst the mixes, it's George Acosta who triumphs with his stadium sized lead riff destined to rip through the speaker stacks!
Review: Canada born, LA based Syney Blu has been making serious waves over the past few months on both the DJ front and with singles 'Another Late Night' and 'Chemistry'. Merging the genre barriers of trance, house, and electro and fitting in very well with the edm explosion stateside. 'Nightlight' ticks the boxes of all the aforementioned and with the tried & tested talents of Betsie Larkin on lyrics and vocals the whole thing is most definitely lifted up a gear. There is much more depth to the production and musicality then some of her previous, and the trance influences really shine through more so than house. With everyone from Bobina and Ashley Wallbridge to Ian Carey and Fedde Le Grand supporting, it look set to be rocking the clubs for a while.
Review: The man like Ferry has had another massive year, touring the world with both DJ sets and his Full On Ferry stadium concept. We also saw the anticipated release of the brilliant 'WKND' album, which this latest single is lifted from. Featuring the increasingly impressive Betsie Larkin, this is typical Ferry Corsten quality with chunky percussion, plenty of drive and some glorious melodies surrounding a catchy and emotive vocal. A punch-packing remix is provided by Dash Berlin on his '4AM' vibe, which throws heavy electro flavours, banging beats, and lots of twisted drops into the fold. Out-and-out dance-floor tune that will do serious damage.
