Rank 1 – Symfo (Sunrise Festival Theme 2009)
The annual Sunrise Festival in Poland has asked Rank 1 to create the festival theme for this year’s event. First Trance Energy, and now Sunrise Festival? There must be something about these symphonic big room productions that make people go crazy at these events and keep them wanting more. I like L.E.D. There Be Light a little bit more, but this track is pretty sick as well. This year’s festival lasts from July 24th-July 26th in Poland and features the following DJs: Rank 1, ATB, Eddie Halliwell, Ferry Corsten, Joachim Garraud, Jochen Miller, Marco V, Sander van Doorn, and Sebastian Leger. Talk about stacked! www.sunrisefestival.pl
Dakota vs. Wippenberg – Chakalaka City (Cristian Ketelaars Mashup)
Another nice mashup by Cristian Ketelaars! He came out with three different versions of this mashup, and here is one of them. Lately I’ve been groovin on Dakota (aka Markus Schulz) tracks, and Sin City is one of my favorites. Mash it up with Wippenberg’s recent classic “Chakalaka” and you get a bumpin two-headed monster!
Nitrous Oxide – Aurora (original mix)
The latest creation released on Anjuna by Nitrous Oxide is amazing! There’s also a pretty cool Sunny Lax remix, but I prefer the original. Sometimes his work starts to sound the same, but this track stands by itself. You can still hear shades of the classic NO sound, but the melody of this track is just beautiful. They say true progressive trance is dead today, but I believe Nitrous Oxide is keepin it real. Expect this one to receive major airplay!
The Killers – Spaceman (Sander van Doorn Remix part 2)
I can’t seem to post up random tracks without including a Sander van Doorn production. Man, this guy gets me everytime with his quality of work. Many artists use the same sounds over and over, but every SvD production is an original. You can really tell the quality of work he puts into creating every single sound in his music. I know this song is old now and might be getting played out, but the heavy bassline gets me everytime I listen to it. I don’t even care about the vocals in this song… the track would be good even without em!
