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.

Trance | BT – Skylarking

Posted by on February 18, 2013


It’s rare to see a track clocking in at over ten minutes in this day and age, but if there’s anyone who can pull off a playtime of that magnitude, it’s BT. “Skylarking” is an atmospheric and otherworldly journey that is absolutely stunning from start to finish — it’s pure trance at its best. The build is slow — it takes about six minutes to really get going — but the wait is unquestionably worth it. This is a must-have for trance connoisseurs and lovers of gorgeous music alike.

Trance | BT & Arty feat. Nadia Ali – Must Be The Love

Posted by on September 17, 2012

Serving as the first single on BT’s upcoming album, “Must Be The Love” with Russian phenom, Arty and possibly the biggest singer in dance music, Nadia Ali combines beautiful orchestral arrangement with smooth uplifting trance to create this heavenly track. The production on this is flawless from the unique orchestral opening to Nadia Ali’s angelic vocals to soothing builds that create a feeling of pure bliss. The individual producer’s marks can be markedly seen with BT providing the detailed production work and the opening, while Arty provides his signature reverbed piano and bass lines. Whatever Arty touches turns to gold and with BT and Nadia Ali aiding him, the alchemy is even stronger.

As first premiered by Arty at Beyond Wonderland during one of the ASOT 550 celebrations, two true artists of their craft (BT hand writes the compositions of his tracks) have come together to with the help of the lovely Nadia Ali and her angelic vocals to bring us this long awaited song. “Must Be The Love” captures the unique sound of Arty that simply explodes out of speakers, as well as the subtle, nuanced sound of BT that makes him one of the most detailed and well respected producers out there. The vocals from Nadia Ali are just the icing on the cake. Mark your calendars, this one comes out September 17th. *Updated with Full Album Version*

Drum & Bass | Drum & Bass Friday

Posted by on June 29, 2012

UKF is known for having not the best in Drum & Bass, but I have to say this remix from Friction sounds awesome. It has great chilled out vibes, with some heavy bass thrown in but more to compliment the track not over power the vocals, kicks, and snare. Just an awesome dance/lounge Drum & Bass tune. It releases September 17th this year.

This next track is the gem of this weeks Drum & Bass Friday. Ragga Jungle, this heavy vocalized tune is perfect. The context of the track is a little sad, but still a work of art. This is the first release off the Curfew Love Riddim.


Wow, this is an incredible Drum & Bass remix of BT. I was shocked when I found out how little people have heard of BT or have even heard any of his work. His original works are great, but his tracks are some of the best to remix.


This track reminds me a bit of Haywyre, due to the use of the Razor style. It a cool sound for sure and now getting to here it in a Drum & Bass setting, I now see many more great uses to the Razor style. Cool and Creative track from Fryonic.


I have never heard a Grimy Drum & Bass tune like this before. It almost sounds as if this is a blend of Garage, Grime, and Drum & Bass. Not sure how other will feel about this track, but I am definitely feeling this new blending.


This is a heavy factory Drum & Bass tune. Listening to it make me think of old Russian warehouses being broken into and holding massive raves. With support of Dieselboy, The Upbeats destroyed this MSTRKRFT track. Big tune.

Dubstep | R Rated #31

Posted by on May 31, 2012

If you don’t know the name Seven Lion’s by now, you must be living under a rock. Having once won a remix competition for Above Beyond; now is being asked for remixes by them. Known for some destructive, melodic dubstep drops, he has climbed his way to the top with some of the hottest tracks in EDM. Look for this release on June 25th. It took me a while to find some tracks for R this week. Seems as though the amont of quality tracks given away has cut down lately. No worries, hopefully summer will bring out the best in all these artist. Barron has been featured many times on R Rated, because we just can’t get enough of his ruff and grimey synth sounds.  Bringing that style to most of his originals and remixes; he decided to take this minimal/techno sounding original by BT and crank it up about a 100 notches.

Another artist who has slowly made a name for himself, having big names such as Rusko, Flux Pavilion and many more dropping his tracks. Tim Ismag, gave away this nice little edit he made. Nothing to heavy to smash you ears, but good enough to sit down and enjoy.

I have to say, I was a big fan of the original of this track by Bong. With the remix compeition for this track, their has been a flood of remixes and this is by far one of my favorites that has been given away for free. Mantis has one of the best as well, but his is locked in for the compeition. Nevertheless RealTalk provides us with this nice, gruesome remix to fill that gap. Taking the track and adding his own spin to it; he also decides to make it into a drumstep style track halfway through which I thought made it 10 times better.
