Ferry Corsten presents Gouryella - Anahera

Once in a while, I stumble upon a song that not only gets stuck in head but also in heart! Music has amazing capabilities and we all know it. Everyone has a different perception about effects of music. I myself have a habit of associating music with weather/season/time. I have songs that remind me of winters 2012-13,  summers of 2012 or 2016, spring 2006 and what not :-)

Yesterday, while watching a live set by Jorn van Deynhoven, I came across a song that he played which immediately caught my attention. Its called Anahera (which means angel) and its a song by Dutch DJ/Trance Producer Ferry Corsten who presented this song under his alias Gouryella (used to be a duo with another Dutch DJ Tiesto but he left).

Anahera is not just a song. Its an emotion. Its not just another Uplifting Trance. Its literally Uplifting. It speaks a thousand words even when there are no vocals in it. It has a beautiful melody packed throughout. It has a typical piano riff that you find in most Uplifting Trance w…

Chapters (Feenixpawl Mix)

I had been longing for long to feature this artist here on my blog but somehow missed that always. Looks like, I am in perfect mood to post this now :-) 

Decolt is a Dutch Dj, previously known as Soundwell. His songs under Soundwell alias have a characteristic fairy-tale sound which makes it a surreal experience listening to them. That typical sound is so pretty relaxing that it makes one wonder who this prodigious musician is. But now Soundwell is Decolt & he has teamed up with Australian Dj duo Feenixpawl for this brilliant track called Chapters (Feenixpawl Mix).

Chapters (Feenixpawl Mix) is a Progressive House track with a slightly delayed development into its drop. But the bassline keeps you engaged till that MASSIVE drop comes & from there its like BOOM!! Supremely catchy & engaging track with a melody that stays in head for long. Its quite opposite to what Soundwell has released in the past but sure, is a great transition. 

Like most Progressive House tracks, it builds,…

Armin van Buuren presents Gaia - Humming The Lights (Full Version)

So, Armin van Buuren here featuring for the very first time on my "not at all popular blog" :-) The only DJ in the world to be ranked World's No. 1 DJ by DJ Mag (A Magazine) five times, 5 years in a row!! This brief info is for those who still don't know what kind of superstar musician he is :-) I have a fairly long play-list of his songs on my phone & selecting one out of that, is a tough task. I decided to select Humming The Lights here because of the vibes I get when I listen to this. 

Humming The Lights is a Progressive Trance song by Armin. You might be wondering who is Gaia? ;-) When there are no vocals in this song, how can it feature someone else as its artist? Well, Gaia is a duo composed of Armin himself along-with his frequent collaborator Benno de Goeij. Benno has co-written & co-produced many of Armin's songs. They use this alias for their darker productions & they perform with their faces covered ;-) 

Coming back to song, Humming The Light…

Jorn van Deynhoven - 101010 (The Perfect Ten) (Original Mix)

Jorn van Deynhoven aka JvD again & so am I after a long time ;) But what a stunning track to make a come back with!! 

Arguably the most beautiful piece of Trance music I have EVER heard! What an uplifiting sonic experience! 101010 (The Perfect Ten) is probably the best thing JvD has ever produced. Such is the addiction of this song that I have been hooked to it since past 3 months & been listening to it daily without fail. I have personally found JvD to be the only Trance artist who can bring tears of joy with his songs & 101010 (The Perfect Ten) is the perfect testimony to this statement. 

101010 (The Perfect Ten) has an engaging melody that is sure to make you scream with joy & feel good :) Such a powerful Trance song that captivates from the moment its intro begins & keeps you engaged till the end. Its an ABSOLUTE STUNNER!! Pure delight!! Listen to it below :) If you turn up the volume & listen carefully (that you will be bound to, nevertheless), you will hear…

RAMsterdam [Jorn van Deynhoven Remix]

Well, ummm, the first Trance song on my blog ;-) Ever since I returned from The Netherlands, my interest in Trance music grew many folds. Reason is simple. Holland or The Netherlands is known for its world-famous Djs/Trance artists like 5 times Dj Mag #1 Dj Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Hardwell etc to name a few.

But today I am featuring a Trance song by lesser popular Dj (half Dutch, half German) known as Jorn van Deynhoven :-) I could have easily started with Armin since he is one of my favorites. But I decided to give special attention to Jorn purely on the basis of this very song called RAMsterdam [Jorn van Deynhoven Remix]. As you can see its a remix of the song RAMsterdam which is creation of another Dutch Dj known as RAM.

Its entirely an instrumental song without any vocals (I would have loved to have a vocal edit as well). It builds, builds, builds and then BOOM!! You will have to believe your ears when you hear that climax. You just need to be patient for that ;-) T…

Kygo - Firestone ft. Conrad Sewell

I know am late to post this ;-) This gem of a tune isn't the most recent one but a tad old. And its already incredibly popular all over the world. But, there are very many people who might be missing out on hearing this gem & that's exactly why I have decided to post this.

Kygo is a Norwegian DJ/Producer known for strikingly different approach to Dance music. There are millions of Dance tracks but almost all of them sound similar. Kygo takes a step further & converts Dance music to "Melodic Dance" number. 

Firestone is a Romantic Dance song with a gorgeous melody, not so big drop (trademark of Kygo) & extremely catchy, infectious instrumental chorus. Right from the moment you hear the intro, you will find there is something special coming your way. This is a kind of song that gets you feel imbibed in music while dancing to it. In other words, its NOT a no-nonsense Dance song. And the breezy vocals by Conrad Sewell will sweep you off your feet!! He has sung …

Alex Gaudino - I'm in Love (I Wanna Do It) (Radio Edit)

Taking a break from Swedish music (that I mostly write about), today will present a different song :-)

This song is called I'm in Love (I Wanna Do It) and its written & produced by an Italian House DJ Alex Gaudino. Its a single from his alum Doctor Love. Song itself falls under House genre but it packs a beautiful melodic intro which also acts as extremely catchy hook. 

I'm in Love (I Wanna Do It), as the name suggests, is a romantic track and its the kind of music you hear a lot from Romanian artists (Inna to be exact). And it indeed is a good thing :-) USP of this song is its infectious hook which keeps on playing & sounds really cool. Just like Kygo's songs, there is a peculiarity in this song. Despite being a House track, there is no loudness & its so easy on ears. Melody is beautiful & arrangement is simple :-) Listen to it below. You will love it.
