Originally a “Demo Of The Week” on Hardwell on Air 153 called “Air” from Uforik, “Hydrogen” has now been repackaged with the skilled help of progressive starlets Lush & Simon. A global collab, bringing together Chinese newcomer Uforik and Italians Lush & Simon, this tune has the airy sound of its namesake. Sounding very similar to something from Audien’s back catalog, the blend of trance and progressive makes this tune a very easy-going, soothing progressive track that flows through the ears. Grab the tune now on Beatport courtesy of Doorn Records.

Finnish trance duo, Super 8 & Tab have been a staple of the Anjunabeats roster in recent years, with contributions on other heavyweight labels like Armada, Garuda and others. They recently announced their sophomore artist album “United”, the follow up to the critically acclaimed “Empire” for release later this month on Anjunabeats. In conjunction with the album, they will be heading out on tour that hits a few cities in Asia and Europe before sweeping across the United States, hitting cities like New York, Dallas, Chicago and San Francisco in November. The album hits stores October 27th, but until then take a listen to the phenomenal lead single from the album, “Let Go” featuring Julie Thompson, which will be released October 13th. Pre-order the album here.

I used to these a lot, but life got in the way of me continuing these, but I am back to provide your weekend soundtrack of mixes and sets. Since the weekend starts on Thursdays during the summer (and for many, year-round), I decided to get these to you now so you get going on your way tonight. It will be a mix short on mixes, but high on the quality, highlighted by two from Kristain Nairn, aka Hodor. The Steve Aoki mix is actually kind of dope, there wouldn’t be any cakes thrown to those tunes. Read on for the rest of the mixes.

The sky is blue and you should too. Ok that made no sense, but it doesn’t matter. Above & Beyond are thankfully much better at just about everything music related than me, including songwriting, and “Blue Sky Action” is their latest tune that is pitch perfect for the summer months. It is the first single from their upcoming album, out early next year so get your mind and bodies ready for that.

Anjunabeats revelation ilan Bluestone has released his three track EP, after “Big Ben” was premiered fittingly by Above & Beyond at Alexandria Palace in London for ABGT 50. The title track “Big Ben” may garner the most attention and pass the “anthem test” for most, but do not sleep on the rest of the EP. “Alysium” and “Waves Of LA” have the vintage ilan Bluestone sound with soaring synth driven melodies, fluttering piano and thumping basslines. We have had to endure all of this time with only one ilan Bluestone tune at a time, so we are spoiled getting three all at once.

The king and the prince. The god of trance and the mozart of Moldova. When a trance legend and soon to be one come together on one tune, you know that there is going to be something special created. It has the vintage Andrew Rayel kickdrum and melodically inclined synth work, held together by the masterful handiwork of Armin van Buurn. This is another absolute coup for W&W’s Mainstage Music, after they released Markus Schulz’s massive tune “Remember This”, the highlight from his recent “Scream 2” album. “EIFORYA” will be included in Armin van Buuren’s upcoming A State Of Trance 2014 compilation, set for release on March 28th.
