DJ Mag 2018 Results: Trance Music Another Year In The Background!

Published

on

The results of the DJ Mag Top 100 2018 have arrived and as we did it the last years, we take a deeper look to the Trance Artists who made it into the Top 100! Looking to all these discussions about genres, popularity and artists we don’t want to participate in, we only want to honor the artists who represent the Trance genre in this poll!

With Armin van Buuren (4), Vini Vici (34) and ATB (49) three Trance acts made it in the Top 50!

Even if Armin lost his 3rd place from 2017, he stays in the Top 5 for the seventeenth year now. Congratulations Armin for this result! Matan Kadosh & Aviram Saharai aka Vini Vici increased to 34 after their first entry in the poll last year on 72! Congrats guys! ATB completes the Trance trio in the Top 50 on 49 (after 54 in 2017)! Congrats, Andre!

Jono, Paavo & Tony have left the Top 50 and reached 51 (after 47 in 2017). Congrats guys! There are followed directly from Jeffrey Sutorius on 52, who announced the comeback under his own name only two months before. His former project Dash Berlin isn’t ranked in the Top 100 anymore (after 20 in 2017) which can be for sure seen as a result of the conflict and splitt with Jeffrey this year.

Paul van Dyk (55 after 51 in 2017), Aly & Fila (74 after 53 in 2017), Andrew Rayel (67 after 79 in 2017) and Ferry Corsten (75 after 90 in 2017) are still part of the Top 100! MaRLo (now 88 after 128 in 2017), Markus Schulz (now 93 after 126 in 2017) and Bobina (now 94 after 138 in 2017) have made their return. DJ Shogun (after 88 in 2017 and 42 in 2016) has finally left the Top ranking. For artists like Arty, Solarstone, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Cosmic Gate and many others you look in vain in the Top 100.

Overall we find 12 Trance artists in the listing which is for sure an improvement to 2017 (with 10 Trance artists ranked in the Top 100)! So it’s important for us to congratulate all trance artists for their reached places in the ranking and their achievement to represent Trance in the DJ Mag Top 100 2018!

Let me know! What do you think about this years results of the DJ Mag Top 100?

Real Trance Addicts Have A Listen! Chicane – Lost You Somewhere (Interstellar Remix)

Published

on

By

About a month or two ago, I posted on my social media that I had already established my favorite tracks of the year. After watching Interstellar – “Creations” Live @ Luminosity Beach Festival 01/07/2018, the duo brought back the real essence of trance music not only for myself but for countless others. Their second track consisted of a remix of the classic “Chicane – Lost You Somewhere” and it’s one of those tracks where you just take it all in and lose yourself in the music. Check out the video above and let me know what you think.

Stellar Collision = A coming together of two stars caused by gravity, gravitational radiation, and other mechanisms not well understood.

Apply this to trance with two creative talents and the result is Interstellar.

Andrew Alexandrov (The Noble Six) & Dan Willis (Neptune Project) are now well and truly embarked on their galactic journey in 2018 bringing you their special ‘Creations’ Set which features solely Interstellar only productions.

Heavily inspired by the likes of Chicane, Above & Beyond, The Thrillseekers, Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Tiesto, Sander Van Doorn, Oliver Lieb, Airwave and many others, the Interstellar productions are reflective of a sound and production art seemingly lost in today’s trance, but still deeply desired from fans.

Expect driving bass, emotional breakdowns, nostalgia, goosebumps and most of all no creative boundaries.

Posted by Maria Healy on Sunday, November 18, 2018

AerClub is the first Irish airline loyalty programme to give its members the opportunity to collect Avios ‘in the air’ each time they fly, ‘on the ground’ with partners such as SuperValu and Kildare Village, and ‘online’ via the AerClub eStore. The eStore is home to hundreds of top name brands including retail, hotels and car hire, across Ireland, Europe and North America, allowing members to collect up to 10 Avios for every Euro they spend.

AerClub has welcomed members worldwide, including 450,000 Irish members, 267,000 US members and 152,000 members from across Europe and the UK.

Each tier has a unique combination of travel benefits which may include lounge access, priority check-in, priority boarding and bonus Avios earning.

Solarstone pres. Pure Trance Vol.7 (Mixed by Kristina Sky, Solarstone & Lostly)

Published

on

By

Autumn… and as Pure Trance’s datebook runs, the end of its seventh year as a scene force. This, like the six before it, comes marked in the time honoured way through ‘Solarstone Presents Pure Trance’.

From within” is where the architect-absolute of the movement, Rich Solarstone believes every Pure Trance-worthy track begins. “When you’re compiling these albums, you know within the first 90 listening-seconds, he says, whether it’s a producer pushing the physical or metaphoric buttons. Or, if it’s a musician truly making music that comes from within”. It’s the acid test each of 50 tracks on ‘Pure Trance VII’ have taken and passed.
Divine intervention perhaps, but latterly, with every 365 that goes by another two new Pure Trance proponents rise to co-mixing prominence, reckoning #7 being no exception. That said, the argument could be made that Kristina Sky’s been in contention far longer. Well-established darling of the US West Coast’s trance scene, she brings 15+ years expertise to her mix. Lostly however is the ne-plus-ultra of the above. Only 12 months ago a ‘one-of-many’, through an unstinting gig & music-making stream, the last 365’s seen Andre Frauenstein’s visibility rise to compilation mixing levels.

 

Naturally Pure Trance lives and breathes through its ability to discover and supply you with the very finest new audio from the freshest talent. As ever then, don’t expect a run of fare from the mainstream’s usual suspects. For every BT, you’re going to find a Dark Matter, for every Matt Darey, a Vadim Zhukov, or for every Scott Bond, an Everlight, a Sam Mitcham, an Astrosphere, etc, etc. Naturally, there’ is an abundance of newness from Lostly and Solarstone’s studios too, and even the usually DJ-booth-bound Kristina has headed into the studio for the album’s gleaming.

So, strap in, sign off those safety waivers and buckle up your dancefloor-pounding boots: Pure Trance is heading to seventh heaven!!!

Out November 9th  – Order Pure Trance VII Here: https://solarstone.co.uk/product/pure-trance-vol-7/

 

In it’s now destined manner, 2018’s ‘Solarstone Presents Pure Trance’ follows the natural arc of a flawless clubbing night. Someone who’s blazed the opening set trail many times for Solarstone, Kristina Sky’s instincts couldn’t be sharper. Of her 20-strong track set, no less than 16 are drawn from the ranks of Pure Trance Recordings latest & up-comers. Frontend of that train, you’ll find producers like Mike Saint-Jules, Elfsong and Revolution 9 delivering purity in the form of ‘Parachuting’, ‘Crenshinibon’ and ‘Awakening’. Kristina’s Resurrection Mashup of BT vs. Attila Syah ‘Journey To Gravity’ marks the midpoint, while (respectively) New Ordinance, Shacada and Tim Verkruissen bring ‘calm-before-the-storm’ moments ‘Beyond Gravity’, ‘Sunset’ & ‘Radiant’. Carrying her set to its conclusion, she works in the Blizzard’s remix of ‘Like A Waterfall’, Solar Movement (aka Activa)’s newie ‘Where We Dream’ and her own latest stunner (alongside Roger Shah), ‘Ocean Flame’.

Remarking on her participation in the album, Kristina said: “I’m truly honoured to have been invited by Rich to contribute to ‘Pure Trance Vol. 7’. Solarstone’s music was a huge inspiration to me early on, well before I started DJing, and I’ve been so impressed and proud to watch him grow the Pure Trance movement over the years. He’s been a great friend and mentor, so to be able to mix this compilation with him has – hands down – been one of the biggest highlights of my career. I hope you all enjoy the music… and Vive la Trance!”

Solarstone catches the closing flow of Kristina’s disc perfectly and with his own Reconstruction mix of Vadim Zhukov’s ‘Heart Connected’ puts the release onto its main-set footing. Tracks like Dark Matter’s ‘When Faith Fades’, ‘False Memory’ from Finland’s Allende and his Pure Mix bring-back of Pink Bomb’s underground classic ‘Indica’ set the mercury rising. Neil Bamford rewire of ReOrder’s ‘Beyond Time’, Astrosphere (aka Driftmoon & Robert Nickson)’s ‘What Lies Between The Stars’, and Mr. Nickson’s remix of Solarstone’ ‘Motif’ each further its ascendance. That only leaves the likes of ‘Something Out Of Nothing’ from Bryan Kearney, Sam Mitcham’s title-apt ‘Whopper’ and Craig Connelly’s revision of Rich’s own epic ‘Jewel’ to shatter disc 2’s thermometer.
Of his co-mix picks for album #7, Rich said: “I’m delighted to have Kristina and Andre joining me this year. I first met Kristina at my Circus L.A debut some 15 years age. We remained friends ever since & I can’t overstate how much she has done for trance in the USA. I chose Andre aka Lostly for this year’s Disc 3 after he played for us in Thailand at the Unkonscious Festival. His energy blew me away, as did his exacting ‘pünktlichkeit’ during the compilation progress, which was absolute professionalism”.

 

Lostly currently reigns supreme”; “better with every track and remix”; “every release finds the net”; “yet more brilliance from Lostly” – just some of the plaudits that DJ Mag alone have placed at the German’s door of late. Whilst Andre Frauenstein’s enjoys an all-times-of-the-night DJing ability, for ‘Pure Trance VII’ he’s handling ‘the final set’. He wastes zero time in weighing in with recent voltage from Simon Bostock, Everlight, Sneijder, Liam Wilson, Indecent Noise and others. A man who always has a healthy resource of his own music to work with, he intermixes his disc with his own studio fare. Katherine Amy pairing ‘Forever’, Factor B union ‘Strandloper’ and (in solo-mode) ‘Reflection’ all land early craters. Latterly meanwhile, Scott Bond & Charlie Walker collab ‘Tides’, his own ‘Distant Shores’, and Allen Watts remix’s of ‘Trans Karoo’ likewise prevail.

 

Having compiled and mixed his disc, Lostly commented: “I wanted to find the right balance between showcasing a number of different artists while still keeping that Lostly sound. By approaching a number of artists to do collaborations, I felt it would be a great solution in yielding as many originals for the album as possible. Not only did I find myself growing personally as an artist but I also found it interesting working with others and seeing their workflow. Alongside these collaborations are originals by other artists of which I enjoy listening to as well as solo album-exclusive originals of mine, which have become near and dear to me”.
