Another week, another healthy dose of anthems, as the 18th edition of Entranced brings you the week’s hottest new trance music, featuring fresh cuts from Markus Schulz, Genix, Sean Tyas, and more.
Allen Watts – Gravity (Original Mix) [WAO138]
Something hard and heavy to kick things off this week, as Dutch producer Allen Watts returns to Who’s Afraid Of 183?! with his latest belter, Gravity. Full of lush melodies, solid kicks, and atmosphere by the bucket load, there’s little wonder Armin van Buuren chose this for inclusion on his A State Of Trance 2015 compilation. Steadily climbing up the Beatport charts, this is what uplifting trance is all about, and it’s out now. If you’re left wanting for more Allen Watts goodness, then check out his Gravity Beatport chart.
Genix – Lima (Original Mix) [Anjunabeats]
British producer Genix has become a firm favourite of Anjunabeats, and with a solid and consistent quality to his productions, it’s little wonder. His latest work, Lima, is more of the same, a pleasing cross between uplifting and big room trance, with bright melodies, big synth stabs and stompy yet groovy percussion that gets your feet moving and puts a smile on your face. With plenty of support already from the likes of label bosses Above & Beyond, this one is rocketing up the Beatport charts, so grab your copy now.
Markus Schulz feat. Delacey – Destiny (Original Mix) [Coldharbour]
Markus Schulz can always be relied upon for a deep and driving bit of trance goodness, and his latest track Destiny certainly fits the bill. Clocking in at over 10 minutes, it’s something of an epic, with enormous atmospheres, infectious plucks, and beautiful vocals courtesy of Delacey. There’s also a romantic tale at the heart of the track as told in the accompanying video. Destiny is out now on Markus’ own Coldharbour imprint.
Sean Tyas – Way Down In Mexico (Original Mix) [Black Hole]
New York-based Sean Tyas is releasing his debut album in 2015, but rather cleverly, he’s splitting it into volumes, which will be spread across the year. The first volume of Degeneration opens with Way Down In Mexico, a solid uplifter that has hints of hard trance about it, and plenty of complex acid lines. It’s another taste of the sublime production style we’ve come to expect from Tyas over the past few years, and it certainly bodes well for the rest of the album! Degeneration Volume One is out now on Black Hole as a Beatport Exclusive.
Soundprank – Redeemer (Original Mix) [Enhanced]
Rounding things off this week is Canadian producer Soundprank, with his new track Redeemer. Coming off the back of last year’s Flare–included in LessThan3’s Top Trance Tracks of 2014–Redeemer features more of the lush chords and glitchy synths that give Soundprank his signature sound. With support once again from the likes of Above & Beyond, it’s clear that Soundprank is a man with a knack for writing hit trance records. Redeemer is out now on Enhanced, so grab your copy now.
