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.

ilan Bluestone - Spheres
ilan Bluestone started 2013 with “Sinai“, and this year he kicks things off with another bomb, the aptly named “Spheres”. It has the vintage ilan Bluestone sound that brings together a hard, driving bass line with well-crafted, soothing melodies that are perfect for Anjunabeats. Mr Bluestone had a breakout 2013, living up to the billing of just about every blog’s artist to watch last year, lets see what he can do in 2014 and “Spheres” is a great way to start.

Posted by on June 24, 2013

ilan Bluestone & Jerome Isma-Ae - Under My SkinAs Anjunabeats moves on from its well-documented landmark 10th compilation released in March, first with Norin & Rad‘s “Bird Is The Word“ last week, they look to another label favorite in ilan Bluestone, who teams up with Jerome Isma-Ae to give us the hauntingly beautiful “Under My Skin“. First capturing the imagination of trance fans in Miami as the most saught after ID in Above & Beyond‘s UMF set, “Under My Skin” combines soothing, emotive strings and piano, with a pulsing, yet melodic synth driven drop, that makes this one of the standout releases on Above & Beyond’s label thus far this year. ilan Bluestone has been a steady riser on scene in the past year or two with a bevy or remixes and originals on Anjunabeats and Armada, including his heavily supported remix for BT‘s “Skylarking“, while Jerome Isma-Ae has long cemented himself as one of the stable forces in trance and progressive. This is a dynamite release from Anjunabeats so do not skip this one.

Trance | BT – Skylarking (ilan Bluestone Remix)

Posted by on June 11, 2013

BT - Skylarking (ilan Bluestone Remix)BT is known for his cinematic, orchestral arrangements that stem from not only his scoring of movies, or his live “laptop symphonies”, or how he writes out songs freehand on paper, like an old-fashioned classical composer, but also how he molds melodies and harmonies over long periods of time.

BT recruits two of Anjunabeats‘ finest over to fellow trance label, Armada Music to give him two remixes for his recent single “Skylarking” off of his upcoming artist album “A Song Across Wires“, set for release August 16th. ilan Bluestone has been a name on the rise with singles like “Sinai” and “Capetown” both receiving high praise, while his upcoming single with Jerome Isma-Ae “Under My Skin” has already received support from the rank and file top trance DJs. ilan Bluestone does not mess with the winning formula presented by BT, simply adding his own melodic charm to the track with a churning low-end and a bigger melody that makes this remix more suitable for the live arena, having been played out by the likes of Armin, Tiesto and more. You can also catch the Maor Levi remix on the package, which goes for a more gritty electro feel, but the ilan Bluestone remix really stands out.
