Our next throwback and trance tune is one of my favorites from Armin Van Buuren’s trance megamix series, A State of Trance, this track from its 556th edition is an absolutely stunning and excellent remix of “Suddenly Summer” by Armin Van Buuren featuring female vocalist, Ana Criado. The Norin & Rad Remix takes this trance tune to the top with a simply transfixing repeating synth melody that begins around the 4:30 mark. Take a moment to sit back, relax and let this song take you away…
French DJ and super-producer, Tchami’s new track After Life from his upcoming release, the After Life – EP does not disappoint. A “Future-House” banger, this track is sure to get people moving with it’s very bassline house vibes and rhythm.

[Chill/Ambient:] Stolen Dance (Alex Brandt’s Saxual Edit) – Milky Chance
The smash-hit single “Stolen Dance” by alternative electronic band, Milky Chance gets yet another remix, this time a Saxual take from EDM artist and producer, Alex Brandt. This particular “edit” doesn’t change a whole lot from the original song but, it doesn’t need to. The addition of some saxophone riffs and melodies further complement the extremely chill vibe of the original and the song as a whole. You can’t go wrong with what sounds like a Jazzy Club remix of Milky Chance! Check out more from Alex Brandt below:

New release from Norwegian DJ and producer, Kygo “Stole the Show” has a very original dance, house feel with what sounds like rainforest or pan flutes accentuating it’s calming, but funky rhythm. We’re left with a very chill track, perfect for rounding out a long day or relaxing at the end of one. The song’s music video is also noteworthy for a very different aesthetic approach featuring two “in love” astronauts and lots of breaking, waving, popping and locking. Check it out above and hear more from Kygo below:
Starting out “Love is Alive” sounds like your run of the mill trance or house tune, but stick it out and the song develops into an aural masterpiece. Initially, the seemingly simplistic melody evolves into one the most unique, aurally pleasing songs I have ever heard. Released in 2008 by Not Ferris this floor-filler uplifts the mind and the soul.
