So im bored out of my mind right now and zoning out to www.di.fm which is probably the best electronic radio station in the world. Just wondering if there were any other WSO users out there that are Trance/electronica/techno and any of the other sub genres fans out there.

Yes, I only listen to their Goa/Psych channel and ASOT.

May 23, 2009

Love trance, especially Armin/Tiesto's stuff from around 2002-2003 and that sort of melodic trance. Also, progressive house/trance are great too e.g. Andy Moor, Tilt, Infusion, Ava Mea. Finally, on the lighter side, funky house, like anything on Hed Kandi, never disappoints.

May 23, 2009

I love trance/house. Anything on "In Search of Sunrise" is usually pretty good. Been listening to a lot of Gareth Emery, Glenn Morrisson and Nadia Ali lately.

May 23, 2009

there was a great website to listen to the latest releases (inc radio mixes)

ill pm once i find it again. entire tracks.

May 23, 2009

download armin's ASOT #386. live recording from his last armin only concert in LA for new years. pretty sweet set

May 23, 2009

SAC - Love Gareth Emery, my favorite is "This is That" mashup with "Take me away" by 4 strings. Its the opening track off of Fabio Stein Big Room 003 Double Pack.

I like Tiesto, Armin, PVD, Fabio Stein, Alex Morph, Alphazone things like that. I really like the progressive genre because of the buildup to a climax and then really go crazy.

trade4size - Haven't heard Fabio Stein yet, will look him up.

If you haven't already, you should subscribe to Emery's podcast, its great, and download his song "Metropolis".

May 26, 2009

Check out Serge Devant. First heard the guy last summer when he opened for Tiesto's concert in NYC. He has become pretty sick now. Also, has a new album coming out.

May 29, 2009

haha, cool thread. I usually download ASOT every week, I would say trance/house is all i really listen to. I did miss Ultra in miami this year...anyone else go?

Jun 2, 2009

I like trance, though I've sort of moved on from it. I much prefer electro-house at this point.

I recommend you all check out The Twelves "Episode II" for a good mix, Justice is awesome, obviously. Some Simian Mobile Disco is cool too.

Digitalism is also pretty awesome. Check out this remix if you like:

I've always been a fan of ASOT. I've somehow managed to accumulate the first 350 mixes as both full sets and individual songs. Man, it was a fun waste of time doing that.

Usually, I'm all about finding more things by the artists I like. I've been enjoying ATB's new album. I have Blank and Jones in circulation on my iPod, Tiesto, Sander Kleinenberg, Ferry Corsten, Jurgen Vries, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold and BT get rotational time, among others.

When it comes to mixes, I've got about 175 sets from Radio1's Essential Mix collection that date back to 2002. I have the last ~50 podcasts of Above and Beyond's Trance Around the World. If more melodic and uplifting is your thing, I would highly recommend A&B.

Jun 5, 2009

I just got Blank & Jones - Relax Volume Four and this CD is sick.. anyone into chillout should definitely get this. Solarstone - Electronic Architecture is another recent release that's been getting playtime.

Thought ATB's new album was pretty disappointing. I'm a huge fan of No Silence and Trilogy CD2 so I found Future Memories to be too much of a return to his old style.

Another good CD is Tiesto's ISOS7. I initially didn't like it, but after a few listens I started to really appreciate it. Both CDs are pretty good. They're a bit lighter when compared to ISOS6 and other previous albums.

Jun 6, 2009

Just heard this song on di.fm what do you guys think

Note: Edited for embedded video, thanks t4s.

Solid track trade4size, takes me back to that 2002-2004 melodic uplifting trance sound, maybe like Armin - Sunburn or Birth of an Angel (instrumental of Shivers).

Sunburn:

Birth of an Angel (especially):

-----
Endlessrain: Thanks for the heads-up on the new Solarstone release, love that guy's work...'Like A Waterfall' and 'Late Summer Fields' are amazing, just to name two. As far as the ISOS series, IMO went downhill after #5, but that's just me.
------
On another note, if people will be around in NYC around labor day weekend (and can get out of the office), Electric Zoo festival should be sick...great lineup (too many to list here), being put on by Made Event, these guys know how to throw a party. And before someone asks, I'm not at all affiliated with Made...

I really like progressive, anything that builds up and eventually goes ape shit.

I am surprised no-one has mentioned Markus Schulz. I liked his CD "Progression" from last year. Also, recently ive started to noticed that a lot tracks I like are by Andy Moor (Fake Awake, Faces, DayDream (Markus schulz feat andy moor).

Oh and throw in Tim Deluxe to my likes, I realize this video is old as hell but I always find myself watching it every other week. Haha.

Woah, as a frustrated DJ back in college this takes me back. Another "too many too list" post for me here. LOL I'm more into prog though. Some guys I like off the top of my head:

PVD
Sasha
Digweed
Ricky Stone
Carl Cox
Axwell
Robbie Rivera
Norman Cook/Fatboy Slim (as a DJ)
Felix Da Housecat
Van Helden
Timo Maas
Chris Lake

While I appreciate Sharam and Dubfire's new stuff, as Deep Dish those guys were AWESOME, they really should get back together.

Same with Chicane, the Chemical Brothers.

EDIT: Props for Gabriel and Dresden, Dahlback, Rudenko, and Deadmau5! Keep em coming guys.

trade4size, agree - though I would say Anjuna is pretty consistent in bringing quality. With that, some of my favorites there, 2010 and previous:

And this last one, while not on Anjuna - is a total classic - required listening for any trance fan:

Nov 27, 2010

When I was going through my techno stage, I used to listen to ATB, Sander Kleinenberg, Gala, Sequential One, Red 5 (and I don't remember others)

Nov 30, 2010

Oh wtf ever, Tiesto isn't going "mainstream", he's big enough to do whatever the fuck he wants. Just because it's not the same as what he used to do doesn't mean he's selling out or some shit.

Not necessarily in general, and I've seen him live, probably my favorite DJ of all time. But the fact that the Official music video is a clip of DJ Hero the video game, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txwd7XFrwvQ, makes me love videos like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-5mGwyhruo even more.

Tiesto "going mainstream?" Tiesto's been mainstream for the better part of a decade.

Dec 1, 2010

I mean, when you're one of the biggest DJs on the planet, it's kind of hard not to be "mainstream"

trade4size and dacarez, had no idea you two were such anjuna fans as well. did you get a chance to snap up a tatw 350 ticket? unfortunately i can't make it, but will be at WMC to see them as well as any NYC events they may do for the group therapy tour.

not a fan of 1 hour ultra sets, unless taking the vip route. yea, they always do it on thursday. their party was the 2nd best this year after ferry's OUAN1 event. absolutely loved jaytech in the anjunadeep room. i really hope they bring andrew bayer in 2011.

i also had a nice 30 min chat with tony at another event about the Group Therapy album and he said it would be out september-ish. guess they decided to save it for early 2011 right around WMC.

i'll be sure to drop you a msg closer to WMC. enjoy the tatw 350 broadcast friday night!

Just heard this one tonight, my mind was blown:

Dec 15, 2010

looks like you guys are into the more uplifting stuff. if you like prog too, i'm sure you'll love Arty - Zara.

also Krzysztof (Nitrous Oxide) has a new one called Downforce that you guys will probably enjoy.

Dec 15, 2010

Yes uplifting/epic is by far my favorite sub genre. Arty is great my favorite is Tritonal - Utopia Arty Remix

By the way, Massive definitely throws solid parties...used to get hooked up all the time (hanging out with free drinks in the booth) knowing Matt...

nice, matt and mike are good people.

@trade4size, you should still come to the events without your non-EDM friends. it's their loss. i've met some great people doing so and if you love trance/prog as much as i do, then its completely worth it.

Melodic Trance in the di.fm fashion

Signum - Timelord
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxDhGJ_ttfg
Gouryella - Ligaya
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eo4IZTm_UPU&feature...
Stargate - Waverider is great but not on youtube

Here are two Fluke songs that are a cut above, but not the usual trance style

Fluke - Goodnight Lover
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6tXEtjiiXY&t=1m35s
Fluke - Bullet
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dD1IUXf9yAA
Motorcycle's As the Rush Comes is one of the best recent trance songs in my opinion, and Solar Stone's Seven Cities is my all time favorite, but only the Armin Van Buuren mix (on Gatecrasher's Disco-Tech album).

I completely agree that Di.fm is definitely the best radio I've ever heard for trance, also.

I know this is a trance thread, but I figured I'd bring in some more types of music:

1) Dubstep- Skrillex is killin' it. His collab with Korn makes me go fucking insane. Two of my favorite genres, mixed.

2) Hardstyle- Zany (pretty mainstream as far as hardstyle. When I first got into trance I was a huge Tiesto fan (and still am), but I've found that drum & bass and hardstyle get my blood moving like nothing else. Here's DJ Zany's Pure:

3) Drum & Bass- DJ Hype. One of my favorite tracks, a pretty chill one, too:

Oh, and for Tiesto fans, I don't know why but this Headhunterz track kind of reminds me of some of Tiesto's stuff (specifically Parade of the Athletes):
