Good news, trance & progressive lovers! Richard Durand has announced that In Search Of Sunrise 9: India is set to release on May 14th, kicked off by an exclusive release party at the Oceandiva in Amsterdam. Durand did an amazing job with last year’s compilation, ISOS 8 – South Africa, after having succeeded Tiesto who left Black Hole Records to start his new label, Musical Freedom. He did well to hand over the reins to Durand, whose first release for the ISOS franchise matched, if not exceeded, Tiesto’s work in some respects. Check out the fantastic Moonbeam remix of Avis Vox’s Introspection Attempts, featured on ISOS 8. There’s little doubt that Durand, who is just coming off an explosive new studio album this year, is quickly becoming the trance artist to look to when it comes to innovation and quality.
As the press release states: “Richard Durand honors one tradition: Volume 9 is once again connected to a location that entices the imagination and this time it is India, with its rich and mystical culture, that formed the inspiration for the mix compilation.” Sounds like we’re in for a treat.
