Trance | Trance Tuesdays

Posted by on October 9, 2012

Greetings, Trance Family. I trust this post finds you well. While this particular family member is still reeling from a positively massive (to borrow Armin’s favorite word) few days — Jochen Miller and Armin van Buuren on Thursday; Above & Beyond on Saturday — it is now time to move past the weekend and pay homage to a sampling of the glorious releases that have dropped in the past week. And glorious they truly are.

First up is the remix package for the stunning “I’ll Listen,” a song that may seem languid and understated at first but which proves wickedly catchy upon subsequent listens. Never doubt the diabolical tendencies of Armin. Check out John O’Callaghan’s “dark” mix above and then join me in trance heaven after the jump.


Trance | Armin van Buuren feat. Ana Criado – I’ll Listen

It’s made the rounds on the weekly trance radio shows, and now Armin van Buuren’s melodic follow-up to 2012 chart-topper “Suddenly Summer” has finally dropped on Armada music, just in time for the bittersweet transition from summer to fall. “I’ll Listen” features soulful vocals from Ana Criado and a cascade of warm, almost cinematic synths that smoothly navigate the listener through subtle crests and peaks. This track is the perfect follow-up to “Suddenly Summer” and — as with so many Armin originals — seamlessly renders an abstract feeling into music. Head to Beatport for the download or pre-order it on UK iTunes as part of Armin’s live compilation from his summer residency at Privilege, Ibiza (set to drop on September 14).
