I am absolutely ready for some bright and shiny new tunes this year, but for those of you who aren’t,  here is another best-of-2010 compilation album. Enhanced Recordings has had a massively successful year as a record label, releasing tons of great tracks and signing up many promising new artists. This 2-disc album contains an awesome look back at all the wonderful tunes released this year under the Enhanced imprint. Producers like Arty, Estiva, and Daniel Kandi have all had a big year, and guys like Suncatcher, Vast Vision, and Temple One are quickly making a name for themselves through the support of Enhanced. Will Holland has done a impressive job developing the Enhanced sound, which in turn has pretty much redefined the melodic trance campaign. All of the tracks set warm and captivating moods, often times leaving you happier after a listen than you were before. For me this kind of stuff is perfect for when I’m driving. While they may not be suitable for club usage, these songs require more patience and attention to truly appreciate. This is something I really enjoy about trance because even though it’s a style of dance music, you can still enjoy it while you’re doing other things. House on the other hand is great for clubbing, but I can’t really listen to it for hours on end unless it’s in a well-developed and planned mix. Good trance songs individually already have that journey-characteristic built into them, and when you play them end-to-end in a calculated fashion, the final result is a magical piece of work. If you have the time, I recommend you check out these two mixes because they are put together very well. The track selection is key and the mixing is fine. Congrats to Will Holland and his crew for the really productive year!
