Trance | Kyau & Albert – Glühwürmchen

Posted by on March 18, 2013


One of my favorite cuts from Anjunabeats Volume 10, Kyau & Albert’s “Glühwürmchen” get its full single release in the aftermath of the compilation that has already seen the release of Norin & Rad’s “Aldo“. “Glühwürmchen” embodies the current sound of Anjunabeats with a slowed down tempo, gritty low end and an infectious melody. Coming off of the release of their artist album “Nights Awake” last month, Kyau & Albert are off a to a very good start this year.

Posted by on August 24, 2012

Middy and I are back with our picks for Day 2 of the whirlwind parade of awesomeness that is Electric Zoo. There’s no clear theme to Day 2 (it’s not the “dubstep” day or the “trance” day), but there is a wide variety of excellent talent to look forward to and spectacles that are sure to astound and delight. Without further adieu, let’s Aoki-jump right in — fun, excitement, and madness await…


Trance | Jaytech feat. Steve Smith – Stranger

Posted by on July 31, 2012

After commanding serious airtime on all of the weekly trance radio shows, Jaytech’s blissed out, otherworldly anthem “Stranger” has finally dropped on Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats. While I’m partial to Kyau & Albert’s riveting and intense reboot (see above; it’s set to drop on August 20), the original is fantastic as well — you simply can’t argue with those vocals against that watery synth backdrop. Expect this track to send sparks flying in the Group Therapy tent at Electric Zoo next month, and look for it on Jaytech’s upcoming album Multiverse, out August 13.

“Stranger” is out now on UK iTunes and Beatport.


Dubstep | Kyau & Albert – Ill Be There For You (Mt. Eden RMX)

Posted by on May 22, 2012

The almost never disappointing Mt. Eden decided it was time to let the people have their Kyau & Albert remix. I never understood why artist kept tracks under lock for so long, but I’m always glad to see them finally being let go. Throughout this remix we see all the aspects that bring us to like Mt.Eden so much. From the beginning we have a nice progression of sounds through the vocals, that builds up to the stylish drop using those famous Mt.Eden synths.
