We hope all you lovers out there had a great Valentine’s Day! Talk about a great week of trance. Tim Mason drops a suave hit in “Swoon”. Armin van Buuren & Arty prep for ASOT 600 with “Nehalennia”. Ferry Corsten leaves little debate with “Kudawudashuda”.
Genre: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE
Description: UK DJ Tim Mason under Steve Angello’s Size Records, hits the #1 spot this week with his massive release of “Swoon” which was initially put to public display on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio1 show. The track contains melodies that are very uplifting and climbing. It has a “feel good” vibe, which often tends to be the one defining quality of a #1 track. This is his largest track to date following up “Anima”.

Description: Arty and Armin van Buuren represent the best trance has to offer in 2013. Nehalennia is spell binding hit that gorgeously procured. Clever vocal chops and blinding melodies are the key elements to the track. In addition, it is the first track on A State of Trance 2013. Armin is the #1 player in the EDM game. Arty is the #1 upcoming trance star. It’s hard to argue that this is an all-star combo.

Description: Another legend makes the countdown in Ferry Corsten. “Kudawudashuda” is an interesting name for a track and the beat is even more so. It is very reminiscent of his old school productions, as it is quick paced and breathes trance. Ferry hasn’t released a ton of new music recently, but this is one to surely take note of.

Description: Armin van Buuren strikes twice this week, with another teaser to ASOT 600 with the Tomas Heredia remix of “Communication”. This track happens to have bit more of a darker feel to it. Heredia is from Argentina and it is important to note that he is only 20. Make sure to tune in tonight for ASOT 600 for the first performance in Mexico City.

Description: Zaa is somewhat of a newer name when it comes to EDM artists. He has been doing a top radio show in Mexico called “Nightology”, however this is probably his biggest production to date. Molly Bancroft delivers her usual “A” grade quality vocal material. With a guitar riff pushing the flow, it a trance like track with a funk vibe.
