The latest edition of the Trance Nation compilation series has been compiled and mixed by duo Cosmic Gate.
It features tracks by Temple One, Mat Zo, Matt Davey, Gareth Emery and Tiesto as well as a new track by Cosmic Gate themselves.
“It’s an honour for us to be mixing this international, established and influential brand mix series by Ministry of Sound and be the next ambassador after respected colleagues and friends like Above & Beyond, Andy Moor and Rank 1″ explained Nic and Bossi.
This new compilation follows a busy 2011 for the duo. They released their 5th artist album as well as a retrospective called Back 2 The Future. In the midst of a global tour, which included 70 shows in north America, they also delivered their debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1.
Trance Nation, mixed by Cosmic Gate, is available to pre-order and will be released by Ministry of Sound on 20 February 2012.
Pedro Del Mar is a man behind many projects.
He plays at events all over the world, has releases on well-known labels, runs his own record company and promotes his successful Mellomania brand.
The new compilation Mellomania 21 showcases the sound of his internationally acclaimed radio shows.
“I’m not revolutionising the scene with my shows and CDs, I’m just doing and presenting what I personally like and feel at that time” he says.
Artists featured on the album include Paul Oakenfold, Bobina, Dimension, Paul Miller, Gareth Emery, Roger Shah and Norin & Rad.
Disc 1 is a “club session” all about 100% energetic, emotional and uplifting trance.
Disc 2 is the “beach session” featuring deeper progressive and balearic stuff.
Mellomania 21, mixed by Pedro Del Mar, is released on Black Hole Recordings on 17 January 2012.
Following the news that Judge Jules will no longer present a show on Radio 1 I’m thinking of announcing the death of dance music – and particularly trance – on UK national radio.
There are still some presenters playing dance music, a few shows tucked away, some digital stations and plenty of internet ones but if you are a fan of dance – and particularly trance – don’t listen to national UK radio.
Except dance music is alive and well and bursting with creativity. Dutch dj and producer Tiësto (who plays a range of dance music) presents a hugely popular radio show and this year has played to massive sell out audiences inAmerica. Armin van Buuren reaches 15m with his radio show and receives well over 250,000 downloads a week for his podcast and UK dance festivals are consistently sold out.
So why isn’t dance music played on UK radio stations and particularly our licence fee funded national stations?
There are excellent UK based artists creating amazing dance music which rarely gets played or playlisted. The legend that is Boy George working with Marc Vedo wrote a fantastic track this year. Gareth Wyn created some amazing dance remixes of the likes of Emeli Sande, Britney Spears and Beyonce.
On the trance scene, there are so many excellent artists with stunning tracks I dare not try and list them for fear of leaving so many out. Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, Lange, Daz Bailey, Paul Morell, Loverush UK, Headstrong, Lost Witness, Jon O’Bir, Chris Cockerill, Jamie Harrison and Matt Davey have all written numerous notable tracks which deserve to be heard by a UK audience.
And those are just artists working in the UK. What about Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Kyau & Albert, Super8 & Tab, Dash Berlin, Alex M.O.R.P.H, Arnej, TyDi? I could go on and on and on.
And yet, their work is hardly, if ever, played on publicly funded UK national radio stations.
Why is that? Well, I’m going to say something which might be contentious.
It is because the people in charge of these stations don’t want us to hear dance music and particularly trance.
These days national radio doesn’t seem to be about reflecting what we – the audience – want to hear. It is about reflecting the interests of those who run the stations and create the shows. They don’t like dance music – particularly trance – so we can’t hear it.
There are presenters, radio producers, artists and dance music labels who try so hard to get their music to an audience via national radio who are denied the opportunity, not because it isn’t good enough, but because staff at the radio stations aren’t into that kind of music so they won’t play it.
I think that is a huge shame and a missed opportunity to share some truly great music. It also utterly fails to reflect the wide diversity of the UK radio audience. Surely, national and publicly funded stations should reflect the wide ranging musical interests of the many not the narrow minded concerns of the few?
I’m sorry Judge Jules is being forced out of his show. I’m sorry that wonderful talented artists can’t get their music on UK national radio. I’m sorry that dance music labels can’t survive because people don’t get to hear their music. I’m sorry that we – the passionate dance music audience – are being utterly, comprehensively and disgracefully failed.
This is the new progressive house track by Gareth Emery featuring Mark Frisch. It is due for release on 14 November 2011 on Garuda.
The track has been well road tested around the world during Emery’s recent tours in North America, Canada and the Far East and his residency at Space in Ibiza.
The release package includes remixes by Benjamin Bates, Alex M.O.R.P.H, Lange and Cliff Coenraad.
Check it out:
This is a new track by Russian producer Artem Stolyarov, better known as Arty.
It has twice been voted as Webvote Winner on Above & Beyond’s Trance Around The World podcast as well as picking up plays on Capital FM and Kiss.
Armin van Buuren and Gareth Emery have both played it during their podcasts.
Have a listen:
According to the track notes, Kate “rides waves of infectious electronic grooves before the release of an anthemic piano melody raises the euphoria levels to the max on the breakdown.”
In other words, it’s good.
It features remixes of original Super8 & Tab tracks from the likes of Gareth Emery, Kyau & Albert, 4 Strings, Rank 1 and Lange.
The iTunes special edition includes the Adam Nickey remix of Irufushi, a previously unreleased remix by Alex Kunnari of Mercy and Mike Shiver’s Garden State mix of Empire.
Also available are 500 signed copies of the album which you can get your hands on in the Anjunabeats online store.
Check out some of the tracks here.
