Not exactly trance, but I absolutely love the vibe of it, absolutely amazing song from Sasha


Great EP from Simon Gregory: Another day

And hearing Albert on the vocals and typical Kyau & Albert sound:

I really liked uplift songs like:

On the progressive side I can bury you with gems, but I am refraining a bit

Lets put a progressive house track with a real trance-y vibe although original came out an year ago the remix came this January:

Also I will not even try to pin a style on this anjunadeep gem:

As always I am chaotic, but that's a nice playlist around trance and progressive...

I just realized that I have no clue where to look.

Hybrid - Nails (Solarstone remix)


Ovnimoon - Equilibrando
Nice chill psytrance. Doesn't feel like stereotypical psytrance at all.



Reefer Decree, Thusgaard - Dr Moth
Susprisingly good psytrance track from Iboga, Again, this track does not feel like stereotypical psytrance, but more like a well-crafted soundscape.

Infected Mushroom - Ma Osim
Released May 24th. A bit slower and more uplifting than you would expect from I.M., but still a very good trance track.

By the way, Artifact303 released an album. Pretty listenable, but it pales before Back To Space. Almost impossible to top that piece of art.

Been waiting for the release of this since they've played this in March, "Luminosity presents: Stoneface & Terminal exclusive 3 hour live set" as the last track - too bad it wasn't recorded on YouTube, thankfully I've watched it live on twitch.

This track kinda reminds me of L.S.G. early stuff.

Beautiful 12 minute journey, double breakdown, emotional piano - my favourite track of this year so far.

Out 4 days ago on Pure Trance, also on Solarstone's 'EA4' compilation last month.

Stoneface & Terminal - Lose My Need

It's been a quiet year so far, musical output seems to be down from the previous few years and not much new talent has come through in the more high-tempo trance scene. Prog house seems to be continuing its revival, with prog trance dormant as usual.

Still, here are two of my favourites:

Activa - Polestar

Dreamy, mature-sounding trance. Right up my alley.


Jaytech - Dreamworld

A very dancey powerful arena-like track. The twinkly melody during the initial part of the break (which also emerges in the form of a supersaw in the second half of the climax) is magical.

IMO that's strong evidence the genre is running out of ideas.
You need someone who takes influence from other genres, a complete outsider perhaps. Then again if you make trance that sounds too different it won't be released on any reputable label.

Honestly you can pick and choose any of the tracks on From the Stars. My favorite is Dreamland:
