Friday night is trance night as we kick start your weekend with more top anthems. This week’s edition of Entranced brings you new music from the likes of Super8 & Tab, Rank 1, M.I.K.E Push, and plenty more.
Matt Eray – Samurai (Original Mix) [Monster Pure]
It’s your weekly Monster fix first as Polish up-and-comer Matt Eray makes his return to the label, this time on their Pure sub-label with his new track Samurai. Tough, pounding, relentless rhythms soon make way to an utterly enormous break and some massive synth riffs, all culminating in one hell of a drop. This is what the word “epic” was invented for and is bound to raise a few goosebumps as well as getting your fists pumping. One thing’s for sure–we’re already looking forward to his next release. Grab your copy here.
Rank 1 vs M.I.K.E Push – Juno (Original Mix) [High Contrast]
A collaboration between some all time trance legends next as Rank 1 team up with M.I.K.E Push for their new masterpiece Juno. Despite featuring a bassline in the intro that conjures memories of the original Push tracks back in the late ’90s, it’s important to note this isn’t just a nostalgia trip. While Juno may have “classic trance anthem” written all over it, the production is bang up to date, and it stands out as one of those tracks that seeks to further the genre rather than simply looking to the past. It certainly seems to be working, as every trance DJ worth his salt is playing this one out lately. Join them by grabbing your copy here.
ReOrder – Zephyr (Original Mix) [Flashover Trance]
Czech producer ReOrder is more familiar for his work on the Monster imprint, but here he makes his debut on Flashover Trance, the more uplifting cousin of Ferry Corsten’s Flashover label. Zephyr stars out with some solid kicks and glitchy synths, but soon morphs into a choral break and a welcome dose of some good old fashioned supersaws. This one has a slight touch of Ferry himself about it, so it’s little wonder the big man has given this one his full support. This is no imitator though, as ReOrder continues to make his unique mark on the trance scene. Grab your copy here, and check out ReOrder’s July Top 10 for some of his current favourites.
Super8 & Tab – Clairvoyant (Extended Mix) [Anjunabeats]
We were privileged to premiere the Rafael Frost remix of Super8 & Tab’s recent collab with BT back in June, but now that Aika has a full release, we can also check out the equally fantastic b-side Clairvoyant. The Finnish duo go it alone on this one, and there’s everything you’d expect from the Super8 & Tab name. A pleasing mix of big room and uplifting trance, this one is all about pumping synths and gritty basslines. There’s a hint of the duo’s classic sound which should appeal to the old-school fans, but Clairvoyant has enough modern charm to see it working well in a festival environment. Grab your copy here and check out the duo’s Aika chart while you’re at it.
Yoel Lewis – Nepal (Original Mix) [Armind]
Rounding things off this week is Israeli duo Yoel Lewis, making their debut on Armind with Nepal. Some crazy bass riffs and tribal rhythms soon evolve into a more traditional trance hook, culminating in a drop that is a crowd-pleasing mix of hands-in-the-air synths and floor-destroying energy. Suited to some mainstage action at ASOT events around the world, expect to hear this being playing out a lot over the coming months. Failing that, grab your own copy here, and give it a spin yourself.
