This track is everything you would expect from the trance OG himself, Alex M.O.R.P.H. working in tandem with the LA based singer/songwriter duo Song And The Moon. The only thing that could possibly make this track better is to have the Argentinian DJ duo Heatbeat remix it, adding a glorious touch up to an already brilliant track. For this piece they bring their unique sound into the mix, resulting in a remix that is primed and ready to light up the airwaves. The blend of mind-blowing talent on this track is through the roof! I know you are going to love it!

Glasgow based producers Gary Edgar and Stuart McLellan make up the DJ duo known as 2nd Phase. Fusing trance and techno together they have developed an identity that is unlike any other in the current scene. Their latest track “Propel The Light” is an amazing example of just how unbelievably talented these men are and why we need to keep our ears firmly planted in their direction. “Propel The Light” has fresh sound elements combined with a cool trance melody and is the perfect track to get the bodies moving on the dance floor.

3. John O’Callaghan – The Forging Of Steel

This track absolutely oozes with heavy trance insanity! Just in time for the Halloween season “The Forging Of Steel” is the perfect track to get your blood pressure rising. The track is perfect for late night afterparties full of strobes, sweaty bodies, and trance addicts looking for their fix of the dark side. John O’Callaghan is a master at dreaming up tracks that are unique and powerful and this is a prime example of his genius. My recommendation would be to turn your speakers all the way up for this one, close your eyes, and let the beat guide you into ultimate trance bliss.

2. The Space Brothers & Mark Sherry – Let It Come (Darren Porter Remix)

The combination of trance heavy hitters on this track is enough to garner a listen. But beyond the associated names comes the true reason why this track deserves some major attention. Why? Because in the latter half this track highlights the glorious element known as the build. And what makes a track even better is when the build is multidimensional. Just when you think you have reached the top you prepare for a swift drop. But this time the melody regroups and takes you even higher! Who needs a heavy drop when you have an epic build to satisfy your all your electronic dance music desires! Tracks like this one are my guilty pleasure.

My final pick comes straight from the discography of trance’s dark horse, Omair Mirza. Already climbing up the Beatport charts since its release just a short week ago, “Too Big To Fail” is creating quite the buzz and shining a spotlight on the raw talent that runs through Omair Mirza’s veins. His path to success in this industry is revealing itself more and more each day and I will not be surprised if he soon becomes a beloved household name in the trance community as he continues to deliver incredible pieces of musical artistry.
