Erro V & Essex - The Second Day (Perry O'Neil Remix) - Captivating Sounds
There are forces in the world set on killing your good time. Arm yourself with this lethal pair of Anthems, rally the troops, and give them hell. A strong synth driven effort here from Captivating Sounds. Dance Valley 2005 tested..... Raver approved!!!!
Stan Void - Montavo <b:side> A Moment's Definition - Somatic Sense VisionI am hooked on these two tracks and once we fire up the decks, there is no relief for this addiction. Epic trance fans can rejoice once again. Montavo is the more uplifting and driving anthem we would expect from a Belgian label. However, "A Moment's Definition" is the real beauty here. Sensual synth lines and warm melodies will give you goose bumps.
Fred Baker - Total Blackout <b:side> Hold Me Now - FBI
Here is a harder shot from the Man Of The Moment. If you like your trance hard, driving, and techy you are not alone. Tiesto drops this track in his "In Concert" DVD. Bangin trance for the naughtiest of DJ's.
Sander Van Doorn - A.K.A. (Slam Remix) - Oxygen Recordings
This one starts out innocent enough then, WHOOOOMP!!!!!! Groove MF'er, GROOOOOVE. Get ready for the funky wah wah wah goin on here as it pounds your senses like only a playground bully could. DIZZZZAAMMMMNNN!!!!!!
Gaudium - Nordic Nature - Spiral Trax
Dark progressive psy-trance is the flava of the month here. Swirling instruments and effects dazzle your subconscious into an altered state of being. Trust me you will be curiously pleased by this odd sensation. Just go with it and enjoy. Four different tracks on wax here. There is plenty to choose from.
Ava Mea - In The End (Hydroid feat. Santiago Nino Remix) - Electronic ElementsA dark erotic synth bass undulates through a deep percussive rolling drum. Slightly synthesized guitars and piano dangle an echoed melody over the steamy measures. It all climaxes into a beautifully stirring breakdown. Take a deep breath, smoke em if you got em, and then it’s back to it's raunchy business until the end of the track. I don't know about you but, I feel so dirty. :)
Nick Muir - Frankenstein - Apache
4/4 and Breaks fans let us all rejoice that Mr. Muir was thinking of you both when he made these tracks. With a killer electro feel and dirty synths these two mixes have the hook to rock the biggest of dance floors. This is gritty and unforgiving while perfect for getting that nasty booty shaking.
Charles & Kling - Parallel Realities (Habersham Remix) - Mixturi
"This stuff is getting ridiculous" is the sample but it is still an understatement. DIZAMN, talk about a evil menacing groove. "Parallel Realities" psychedelic tribal brings the madness to shake us loose of any inhibitions. Then we can truly dance and celebrate music and life.
Cristian Vecchio & Kitikonti - Finally EP - BXR
BXR is usually known for their bangin hard house. Here they show in four tracks a more subdued progressive style that drives for a couple and a gritty techhouse feel for the other two. The "Finally EP" has a slow churning naughtiness throughout it all. Ask your parents permission before you buy.
Kool & The Gang - Ladies Night (Soda Inc + Biogrd Remixes) - Plastic CityWhat the F???? 4 mixes of "Ladies Night" done alright!! One is deep dark and proggy, one is dub techouse, one is old school dub house, and the last is a slightly electro dub. I though I was having one of "those" flashbacks, and it felt gooooooood! I'm sure this was a limited press but I would recommend trying to get it anyway.
