This week on Entranced we get you in the mood for spring with another roundup of the week’s biggest and brightest anthems. This edition features new trance music from Gaia, Airbase, Darren Porter, and more.
Darren Porter – Cause & Effect (Original Mix) [Monster Force]
Kicking things off this week is a 140 BPM belter from British producer Darren Porter, who returns to Monster with Effect. His previous outing on the label, Terraforming, was in Armin’s Top 20 tunes of 2014, and this one is surely capable of receiving similar accolades. Full of energy and epic synth riffs, Effect is a must have for any discerning trance fan, so grab your copy now.
Gaia – Carnation (Original Mix) [Armind]
The true identity of the producer behind Origami may have destroyed the rumours of a Gouryella reunion, but fear not, because another legendary trance duo did release a new track this week. First featured on the A State Of Trance 2015 album, Carnation is the latest effort from Armin van Buuren & Benno de Goeij’s Gaia alias, and is a stompy main-room anthem with a haunting lead melody. Experience it yourself and pick up your own copy now.
Gareth Weston – Trojan (Original Mix) [Tytanium]
Something hard and heavy up next as British producer Gareth Weston makes his return to Sean Tyas’ Tytanium imprint. Trojan is hard trance with a hefty dose of uplifting, solid kicks and bright saw riffs. Much like the famed wooden horse the track is named for, this one should take you by surprise on the dancefloor, and is bound to be an early-hours anthem at trance nights worldwide in the coming months. Get it here.
Rodrigo Deem – Helsinki (Original Mix) [Enhanced Progressive]
Argentinian producer Rodrigo Deem makes his return to Enhanced with Helsinki, a beautiful piece of progressive trance that has seen support from both Above & Beyond and Armin. Full of lush melodies and big-room tinged rhythms, this is a club anthem stocked with plenty of emotion, and has future classic written all over it. You can get your copy of Helsinki now, and help it storm up the charts in the way it deserves.
Six Senses & Terk Dawn – Aftershock (Airbase Remix) [Blue Soho]
There were also rumours abound that Origami was actually the work of Airbase rather than Gouryella. The good news on that front is that the Swedish producer also released a track this week, a sublime remix of Six Senses & Terk Dawn’s Aftershock. With staccato synths and a laid back rhythm, this is a taste of the old school trance that Airbase made his name in. You can get your own copy now, and if that isn’t enough, keep your eyes and ears peeled for his upcoming single Oil, due out on April 6 on Flashover Trance and available now for preview on Flashover’s SoundCloud.
