Throwback 1 [R&B]: Keri Hilson’s hit single “Change Me” featuring Akon, one of the calmer tracks off Hilson’s EP In a Perfect World… The blend of hers and Akon’s voices make an interesting R&B track. It was hard to find the song period so do yourself a favor, and get a high quality version of this song or buy it on iTunes!
Throwback 2 [FESTIVAL TRANCE / EPIC TRANCE]: Sleeper-hit off Armin Van Buuren’s weekly trance music megamix series A State of Trance 560 is trance artist Thomas Ulstrup’s “Autumn Evening Star“. One of the most entrancing, energy-raising tracks from that ASOT edition, “Autumn Evening Star” begins with driving melodies, bass and snare hits giving way to a small breakdown before a quite rapid build-up into the synth-filled climax and best part of the song. The feeling it gives off is somewhere in-between wandering the Sahara or Mediterranean mountain ranges at night combined with images of Ibiza or raving off the Australian/Bahamian coast. Enjoy!
