After a year of travelling the world, producer First State presents his new mix compilation The Whole Nine Yards 2: Jakarta – Amsterdam.
The 2 disc album gives the flavour of a 3 hour DJ set performed by First State in Jakarta in 2012 during his travels around the globe.
Artists featured include Manufactured Superstars, Andain, Robbie Rivera, Marco V, Felix Leiter and Aruna.
Check out the album trailer on YouTube for a taster:
Ferry Corsten has released Vol 3 of his Once Upon A Night compilation series.
It “paints an otherworldly story of a long night out where danger and mystery meet sex and bliss.”
Disc 1 features tracks by producers such as Klauss Goulart, Yuri Kane and Cosmic Gate.
Disc 2 includes new music by Andain, Flashtech, Moonpax and Aruna.
There are also tracks by Corsten himself such as Silfra and A Day Without Rain as well as a collaboration with Markus Schulz called Stella.
“See it as an aural tale that conjures deep memories while creating new ones. The double disk compilation perfectly captures the tense excitement one feels right before embarking on a night on the town,” states the promo material for the release.
Ferry Corsten presents Once Upon A Night Vol 3 is available now on Premier Recordings.
You Once Told Me is the first official band album by Mavie Marcos and Josh Gabriel otherwise known as Andain.
It features tracks including their most recent single – Turn Up The Sound – and Promises which was released in 2011.
“We blended natural acoustic sounds with electronic percussive ones throughout the album,” explains songstress Mavie.
“We made sure to keep our musical sound pallet, made up of our drum kits and analogue synth sounds, consistent throughout. We thought this would result in the most intricate album for the listener – something that is meant to be listened to in its entirety as a cohesive piece of music – not just a string of singles.”
Andain have previously created anthemic records such as Summer Calling and Beautiful Things.
For the 6th consecutive year Robbie Rivera presents his Juicy Ibiza mix compilation.
It features tracks by artists such as Ultra Nate, Cosmic Gate, Andain, Bobina and Tiësto.
“Epitomizing the sun-drenched atmosphere of vacation time, beaches, palms and pool parties in his unique matchless style, DJ/Producer Robbie Rivera drops the newest cuts in a feel good summer vibe” say Black Hole Recordings about the new release.
Rivera is known for tracks including Closer To The Sun, Let Me Sip My Drink, Rock The Disco and We Live For The Music.
His latest album – Dance Or Die – was released in May 2012 and the most recent single – In The Morning – is receiving radio play worldwide.
This is the 3rd installment in the chillout compilation series compiled by Pedro Del Mar.
There are 17 new cuts, many of them previously unreleased, by artists such as Roger Shah, Bjorn Akesson, Jamie Carpenter, Motif and Sunlounger.
“Playa Del Lounge really means a lot to me,” says Del Mar.
“I have been active in the music industry for 16 years, rushing from gig to gig and meeting to meeting, but one thing is key for me. To make sure that I can escape the busy daily life by working on my annual chillout album.”
“It means that I invest a lot of effort and passion into the project simply because it is such a great experience to check out hundreds or even thousands of downbeat tunes.”
“Think of it as a nice combination of brainstorming and creative music sessions with first class international artists in order to secure exclusive material that matches my vision.”
“As always I didn’t want to limit the musical style to one particular chillout sound. I wanted to showcase the wide range and all facets of ambient, chillout, downbeat, acoustic and other influences and in all modesty I can say that Volume 3 covers them all.”
Sixteen of the tracks are vocal tunes featuring the voices of artists such as Betsie Larkin, Emma Hewitt, Inger Hansen, Ana Criado, Andain and Adrina Thorpe.
There is also a new single by Del Mar himself which is a collaboration with Richard Durand and Roberta Harrison.
The 19th edition of the In Trance We Trust compilation series has been mixed by Danish dj and producer Kris O’Neil.
O’Neil started his career working on a local radio station and since then has produced tracks including Paid My Douche, Those Mornings, No Porn Intended and Swingersclub.
He has also been responsible for numerous mix compilations on Black Hole Recordings.
The In Trance We Trust series has previously been entrusted to the likes of Carl B, Mark Norman, Bobina, Cor Fijneman and Virtual Vault.
For the 19th album, Kris O’Neil has chosen tracks by artists including Allure, Cosmic Gate & JES, Andain, Andy Duguid, Marcel Woods, Marc Simz and Bobina.
It features tracks by Allure (one of my current favourites), Moby, Andain, Sydney Samson and Tiesto just on disc 1.
On disc 2 there is summer music by George Acosta, Ferry Corsten, Moguai and JES as well as Rivera himself.
This sexy little number is available now in all shops and portals.

This album will be the next best thing to being at the event itself so, if you can’t make it, grab the compilation via retail sites and download portals as soon as it is released.
How would today’s trance hits sound if they were played in a bossa nova style?
Black Hole Recordings decided to find out and recruited professional bands to infuse 12 famous trance hits with Latin American sounds.
Andain – Beautiful Things, Tiësto – Love Comes Again, JES – Imagination and Cosmic Gate – Not Enough Time are just some of the tracks which have been given an injection of Latin American spirit on a new Bossa Trancelations album.
Invite your friends over, start making the mojitos and enjoy the album which is available now from shops and portals!
I first heard this track by Andain during a mix Tiesto did for a magazine covermount. It has stayed with me ever since.
It’s a bewitching track with a haunting vocal.
For 2010 Black Hole Recordings are releasing a stunning set of remixes from artists such as Jorn van Deynhoven, Spaio & Sleazy Tek, Roger Shah and Pedro Del Mar & Ole Van Bohm.
Current hot property Jorn van Deynhoven strips the track to the minimal roots and includes nods and winks to italo sounds from back in the day.
Pedro Del Mar & Ole van Bohm give the track a slightly more electronic atmosphere turning it into a full on hands in the air trance moment.
Roger Shah takes a techno angle which includes his unmistakable sound so reminiscent of long hot summer nights while preserving some of the key elements of the original.
Spaio & Sleazy Tek take a completely fresh approach with a brand new arrangement. They somehow move the experience beyond clubbing and into the post party chill out with a beautiful string section.
These new takes on this anthem remind you of the quality of the original. It’s great to hear this beautiful track again and I can’t wait to experience it on the dance floor.
