The follow up to 2013s chart topping summer hit "Under My Skin", "Tension" is the second collaboration from 2 of the scene's most prominent artists, ilan Bluestone and Jerome Isma-Ae. Debuted in the torrential rain at this year's Ultra Music Festival, it has quickly become a festival favourite in Above & Beyond's summer sets; an uplifting anthem that captures the modern Anjunabeats sound.
Seamlessly blending orchestral and electronic elements, they well and truly ratchet up the "Tension" with layers of choral pads and foreboding strings climaxing in an intoxicating euphoric release. Marrying ilan's bubbly arpeggio hooks with Jerome's well crafted grooves,...
Seamlessly blending modern big room ideas with vintage uplifting vibes, Miika Eloranta and Janne Mansnerus have maintained their pacesetter status at the forefront of the contemporary trance scene.
Having consistently delivered perfectly crafted peak time instrumentals like "L.A." and "Code Red" (alongside label mate Jaytech) in recent years, "No Frontiers" is a bold return to emotive songwriting; the first single to be taken from Super8 & Tab's much anticipated second artist album set for release this Autumn.
The follow up to classic collaboration "My Enemy", "No Frontiers" sees Super8 & Tab reunite with British singer / songwriter Julie Thompson. Charting the chaotic...
Release #7 on the Pure Trance label is gleaned from the tracklist of Solarstone's 'Electronic Architecture 3'. This is a piece of Pure Trance finery from one of the scene's hottest young newcomers, Liam Wilson. In its 136bpm Original Mix, 'Kiss' combines sun-kissed balearic vibes, ethereal vocal snatches & a classy helping of arms-aloft melody to brilliant effect. Over to fellow rising talent Adam Ellis for the remix, who wastes no time in ratcheting things up to a blistering 140bpm slammer, complete with reverb-soaked piano, gritty acidic touches & gated pad flourishes. Massive.

Huge track back when was first released that included even remixes from top artists like Tiesto. Now the lucky ones who have the magnificent opportunity to bring it updated are of course Jordan Suckley & James...
