Indecent Noise - Everything Is Connected

It’s not the first time that preconceptions have required resetting on this channel. In the instance of Aleksander Stawierej though, before we pierce some, we’re going to proliferate a few! Aleksander is the Warsaw-based keyholder to monikers like Raw Tech Audio & ACIDØ; the A&R warden of…


Markus Schulz - Escape

That the eighth album from Markus Schulz is arriving in extraordinary times scarcely needs saying. Some already have - many more will. It’s the direction that artists chose to take with that wealth of additional production time that’s now providing the real insights. By way of example some…


Solarstone - When I Dream

Initially written for his own lockdown-relieving fulfilment, this month ‘island’s music collection becomes something for everyone. An album for those who have to dream or recall, rather than first-hand-experience that place between sea and sky this year. Prefacing its full release, its first…


Cosmic Gate In Concert

When its come to creatively streaming their way through lockdown, Cosmic Gate have known few bounds. From New York City’s rooftops to initiating Miami’s balcony raves, where there’s been a Cosmic will, there’s been a Cosmic way. In October though, Nic & Bossi will go beyond the simply…


Markus Schulz & London Thor & Valentino Alessandrini - Feel Alive

Markus Schulz’s single-introduction to his new album, ‘Escape’ comes by way of its out-today overture ‘Feel Alive’. The Miami native has added London Thor and Italy’s Valentino Alessandrini to the track’s cadre, creating in a heartbeat a single that transcends scene & season to deliver a…


Dennis Sheperd x George Jema x Eric Lumiere - In Your Hands

Running up hot on the heels of his ‘I Can Feel’ Sunlounger collab, Dennis Sheperd gives summer the most righteous of send-offs with ‘In Your Hands’. Widening the lens on his third album, Dennis has also expanded its artistic deck, teaming up with George Jema & Eric Lumiere for the release.…


HALIENE - Walk Through Walls

You’ve seen the name HALIENE on some of the biggest tracks in dance music — from Saving Light to Rush Over Me to Ave Maria — but with her new solo single “Walk Through Walls” she is stepping out on her own. With thoughts conveyed through lyrics that come from deep within, the US songstress draws…


Solarstone - Island

What did you do during the big stay-home? Solarstone wrote himself an album - an unplanned one obviously, and one - by his own acknowledgment - he wouldn’t have gotten to write in more conventional times. ‘A lockdown album’ by any other name - not the first and undoubtedly not the last. ‘island’…


Paul van Dyk - Guiding Light

TENTH ARTIST ALBUM FROM THE ELECTRONIC MUSIC LEGEND OUT NOW // INCLUDES OUTSTANDING COLLABORATIONS WITH BO BRUCE, VINI VICI, SUE MCLAREN, WILL ATKINSON AND MANY OTHERS So here we are, and at long last, in the late summer of 2020, here it is: PvD’s landmark tenth studio album. After a…


Paul van Dyk & Sue McLaren - Guiding Light

Let’s recap… because a whole lot’s happened in a relatively short space. Heralded by three clubfloor-natured singles, ‘Guiding Light’ - the tenth album collection from legendary electronic musician Paul van Dyk - was primed for release back in April. Then the proverbial wrench went into the…


In Search Of Sunrise 16 Mixed by Markus Schulz, Giuseppe Ottaviani & Sunlounger

Keeping the scene on its toes, last year’s ‘Search’ culminated in the November arrival of ‘ISOS’s first ‘winter edition’. With 2020 however, series-braintrust Black Hole Recordings have restored release balance to ‘In Search Of Sunrise’s force (they figured you could use the dependability!) As…


Cold Blue - Summer Chills

Different times mean different pleasures, which musically has taken producers to some less expected places of late. Not least Cold Blue, for whom the six months - following the December release of his debut album - have not been the anticipated ones. That said, another perspective on ‘Winter’s…


Mark Sherry, Scot Project & David Forbes - Outburst presents Prism Volume 3

It feels like an almost indecent amount of time since Mark Sherry served us a Prism collection… On second thoughts, there’s no “almost” about it – it has! Captain Outburst has been anything but idle though, spending the interim DJing, A&Ring, label running, ‘Confirm Humanity’-releasing,…


Orkidea - Pure Progressive Vol. 1

It took a shade under thirty months for Pure Progressive to rock past its one-hundredth release. That was time enough for the label to bring music from near enough every prog operator of note through its doors and onto floors. Penner, Barone, O’Glue, Saint-Jules, Schossow, Driftmoon, label honch…


The artist album evolved: A Sharper Edge by Craig Connelly

Whether the three years since Craig Connelly album-debuted with ‘One Second Closer’ feels long or brief is almost academic. For Craig himself the duration’s provided the ultimate in transformative phases, seeing him punch up from promising name to major contender. With the arenas and festivals…

LP DEBUT FROM CANADA’S SOMNA DROPS MAY 8 // ‘BESIDE YOU’ – THE SINGLE – FEATURING NOIRE LEE ON RELEASE NOW // WIN AN ALL EXPENSES PAID TRIP TO A SOMNA EVENT OF YOUR CHOICE!! ‘Secret’, ‘Long Way Down’, ‘Stars Collide’ and its limitlessly touching Noire Lee-sung released-today title single have all…


Cosmic Gate - Universal Love

WAKE YOUR MIND DEEP RECORDS OPENS ITS DOORS WITH FIRST RELEASE FROM MARCUS SCHÖSSOW AND MATTHEW FELNER’S GARDENSTATE PROJECT Do not adjust your signal (or check your bit-rate, wifi reception, etc!), Cosmic Gate have punched up a track that takes them as far off the C.G. ‘grid’ as they’ve been in a…


Paul van Dyk - Escape Reality

On April 17 of 2020, Paul van Dyk will release his next long-form music project. It won’t however be the one you were expecting. An unprecedented move mirroring unprecedented times, Paul has placed the dancefloor-centric ‘Guiding Light’ album on ice until the day that clubbing starts to make sense…


Cosmic Gate Announce 'Wake Your Mind Sessions 004'

This time last year Cosmic Gate had to write you a big, fat ‘IOU’. Sat in the customary spring release slot for their mix-comp annual was ’Forward Ever, Backward Never’ - the group’s 20 years-crowning artist album. Priorities were priorities - they were sure you’d understand!! So #WYMS had to…


Zoo Brazil - For Sins And False Alarms

Stylistically classifying what Zoo Brazil does is a feat most John Andersson watchers gave up on time ago. Never out of design, a desire to confound or to duck the sound-du-jour, it’s simply a consequence of his deep-within musical wanderlust. As a result, more than the average, Zoo Brazil’s…


Cosmic Gate - The New Single - 'Your Mind'

Having blazed their 2020 release trail with a rework of Armin van Buuren’s ‘Something Real’, Nic & Bossi’s killer new production reaches stores & streaming platforms today. ‘Your Mind’s title tips a knowing wink at the WYM label, its mix-comp companion and Cosmic Gate’s long-standing…
