Preview, Trance | Tom Fall – Irok

Posted by on July 6, 2012

Tom Fall is one the biggest rising names in trance. If there had to be two guys who have truely exploded onto the scene this year, it would have to be him and Heatbeat, the Argentine duo. Tom Fall has been tagged for some of the most illustrious remixes throughout the year and has developed a reputation as a superior trance Dj who is not afraid to try new things. “Irok” is a perfect example of that, incorporating the massive pack that Nicky Romero made famous in “Toulouse” and bringing it into the trance fold with strong electro house influences. It is the type of track that anyone can like and appreciate and because of that Djs of all genres play it from Tritonal to Armin to Hardwell play this regularly and this track consistently gets one of the best reactions in a set. Check out his other stuff on Beatport and his Facebook page below. Also his remix of Armin van Buuren’s anthem “J’ai Envie de Toi” is set to release July 16th so be on the lookout for that; preview after the jump. Also is a great bootleg that uses the vocal bit from Gregori Klosman – Minibar, as well as the anthem of the year “In My Mind” with the above described “Irok”. Very well fused and mixed together.

Up and coming Belgian Dj Siege is back with another single “Push & Play” out now on Armada Records. “Plug & Play” is a melody driven progressive track built around a slow, high pitched piano melody with accompanying synth chords to create the full body of the melody with a steady clap driven bass line. This is another solid addition to the growing discography from the young Belgian producer. Below is a full length preview of his remix of a Elton vs Pnau – Good Morning to the Midnight. With well constructed melodies, driving synth chords and electro stabs, this one will be a must have upon its release, June 25th.

That looks like one of the best offices to work in; great music, great label and Mat Zo causally djing in the background. Where do I apply? Tritonal & Ben Gold have released their much anticipated dub remix of Tritonal’s “Slave”, which has been one of the biggest tracks on various podcasts and web shows from Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Above & Beyond among others for the past month. This song just has to be bought by you guys. Not only is it an outstanding song, but Tritonal is also giving out 5, yes 5 exclusive mashups if you buy this song between today and the 27th. If that was not enough, if you buy it within the next 24 hours, you also have a chance to win tickets to their show in Leeds with Gareth Emery and Andy Moor, among others. Convinced yet? I know I bought this song. Details right HERE and more on their FACEBOOK. Get this on BEATPORT.

Eco, a trance Dj and producer based out of New York just released this two song EP on Armada Records that is simply stunning. With a simple yet effective bass line, these songs have slow, measured builds that pace their way into melodic breaks with uplifting synth work that is worthy of establishing Eco as one of the elite US trance producers. Get the EP on BEATPORT.

Stoneface & Terminal create this remix that is almost nothing like you have heard in trance before. It has a great, melodic build that suddenly drops into a very slow heavy two-step beat that then speeds up into an intense synth and bass driven drop that makes this song as wild a journey of sound as it is tempo for the listener. Get it on BEATPORT.

Orjan Nilsen continues his 2012 right where he left off in 2011 by making absolutely massive trance tracks. He was a breakout artist in 2011 with a very successful album on Armada Records, and is only looking to build on that success in 2012. “Lucky Strike” is testament to that as a display of utmost quality from start to finish. Get this track on BEATPORT.

Xtigma comes out with this great single on Gareth Emery’s Garuda Records, that will surely help both the label and the artist. The song gives a great array of synth sounds with pitched synths and different tempos, as well as a great bass line underneath. Get it on BEATPORT.

House, Preview | Adam Björnberg

Posted by on October 10, 2011

Adam Björnberg a 17 year old Swedish DJ born in Northern Sweden, living in Stockholm grew up playing piano and guitar, but EDM was his true love and thankfully for us he stuck with it. The songs vary in structure and style a bit but he generally uses piano driven leads with synth cords to compliment and a bassline that builds from one drop to the next. He is a name to on the look out on Armada Records for with his production capabilities and his infectious sound.

House, Trance | Erik Arbores – Take It E.P. 14 Year Old Phenom

Posted by on September 27, 2011

Ok so I brought those 13 year old kids playing Cafe Mambo yesterday and today I bring you an EP that has gone number 1 on the iTunes charts in Netherlands from a 14 year old Dutch kid. He is signed to Armada Records. The E.P. uses a whole variety of different sounds, from piano leads to darker synth sounds and some trance-house, displaying already the musical variety this kid and how good a producer he is. This kid is absurdly talented and he is really smart too, currently taking physics at the oldest technical university in Holland. All I can say is wow and look out for this kid to destroy clubs, festivals in the very near future. Support him and buy his E.P on beatport HERE.
