It’s that time of the week again, Ninjas, when the lifeless Thursday afternoon is shocked back into life through your weekly helping of Trance. Before getting into this weeks playlist, let’s look back over the amazing Monday when the great Armin Van Buuren supplied the world’s speakers all the way from Ibiza. While the rest of the world is settling into their Fall routine, the Ibiza summer season just officially came to a close. To mark the end of the season and the end of A State Of Trance‘s Invasion, Armin put on an epic night at Privilege in Ibiza — six hours straight of music courtesy of W&W, Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, and of course Armin himself. To truly understand what trance is all about check out Armin’s, Dash Berlin’s, and Markus Schulz sets.
Now to get into this week’s Trance offerings. This playlist starts out with a massive remix of Markus Schulz Love Rain Down On Me by Myon & Shane. Brilliantly swooping through a range of progressive synths and the gorgeous voice of Seri this track defines what can be done when build ups are intertwined with raw human emotion. This past Monday an absolute bombshell of a track was dropped by one of the trance originals Paul Oakenfold titled “Come Together”. Striking with all his mighty force, Oakenfold delivers this eccentric combination of harsh electro sounds with gentle vocals to show off the great versatility that trance exudes. Norin & Rad deliver their aptly titled “Five Finger Death Punch”. Continue on through the playlist will lead to some irresistible soundcloud finds. Syntek delivers a gorgeous song in his “Virtual Reality,” while Shanno shows of the darker side of trance with his song “Stranger”. Finishing off with a scintillating bootleg from Andrew D of Kaskade and Deadmau5’s “Move for Me”. Sitting on top of all those tracks down below is a continuous mix of all the tracks in this weeks dojo. Much love Ninjas Enjoy.
