Paul Oakenfold Announces Trance Mission North American Fall Tour

Three time Grammy nominated DJ and producer Paul Oakenfold returns to his roots as the original pioneer and icon of the global trance scene with a new tour and album concept that launches in the US and Canada this October.

“Trance Mission” will bring a fresh visual and audio experience to the hottest dance floors of the world as Paul takes his popular “Full on Fluoro” sound, which has gathered incredible popularity in Europe recently, on the road in the US for the first time. In addition to the tour Paul will release a ”Trance Mission” album featuring brand new versions of ten of Paul’s favorite trance releases of all time.

Paul Oakenfold’s diversity as a producer and DJ have earned him mass acclaim from all sides of the dance music scene but despite his successes producing / remixing the likes of Madonna, U2, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, many fans will always associate him with the trance movement in which he has played an integral role for well over two decades.

In the 1990’s Paul’s Perfecto and Perfecto Fluoro record labels were responsible for some of the biggest selling trance releases of all time, including classics like Planet Perfecto’s “Bullet in The Gun”, PPK “ResuRection”, Man with No Name’s “Teleport” and Paul’s own colossal hits Grace “Not Over Yet” and “Southern Sun” – the latter of which has appeared on over 150 compilation albums to date.

Of his 36 Essential mixes for BBC Radio 1, his legendary “GOA Mix”, which perfectly fused underground trance with poignant samples taken from film and radio, was voted the best Essential Mix of all time by Radio 1 listeners. It also received a Silver Award in the Specialist Music Programme category at the 1997 Sony Music Awards.

Paul’s 2011 “Fluorescence” Essential Mix was seen by many as the next chapter to the Goa Mix – with the online archiving of the show attracting over 500,000 listeners in the 3 months after its initial broadcast.

His residencies for Amnesia and Pacha (Ibiza), Ministry of Sound and Home (London) and Planet Perfecto at Rain (Las Vegas) are all well documented as milestones in the evolution of the electronic scene, but it was his residency for Cream in Liverpool that not only set his path towards becoming the one of the biggest headliners in the world but also cemented his status as head of the trance fraternity.

Over ten million album sales later (from two artist albums and over thirty DJ mix compilations) Paul Oakenfold opens a new chapter in the history of trance with his brand new “Trance Mission” tour and album concept.

Trance Mission is now activated….

Wall Street White Paper Values EDM Industry At $20.0 Billion

Electronic Dance Music (EDM): The Digital Pangaea, the first annual Massive White Paper written by Wall Street veteran John Langdon and his company Massive Advisors, LLC shows the current reach, influence and true value of the global EDM Industry. It’s an econometric market study of the global electronic dance music market and culture. Despite its growing popularity, studies on the macroeconomic impact of EDM are rare. Much less an all encompassing report that combines public and proprietary data to show the true figures of the industry.

The findings of the Massive White Paper show the EDM industry still is often completely ignored or misunderstood by governments and businesses worldwide — from traditional music distributors, to apparel brands, to acoustics manufacturers.

The EDM market is a $15.0 to $20.0 billion global industry, with the major players in the global festival market achieving $4.5 billion in sales for 2012. Digital music revenues grew an impressive 9.8% in 2012. This compares to a 17% increase in festival attendees at five top

global festivals and an increase of 33% in the total number of festivals thrown yearly worldwide. The attendance at 20 top global festivals evaluated by Massive Advisors, LLC increased from 1.9 million in 2009 to an estimated 3.4+ million for 2013.

Wall Street White Paper Values EDM Industry At $20.0 BillionJohn Langdon and representatives of Massive Advisors will serve as panelists at the Amsterdam Dance Event Radio Forum speaking alongside the world’s number one DJ Armin Van Buuren (Amsterdam,October 16 – 20). They will discuss the state of the dance music industry, DJing, producing, and technology and the future of dance music.

John Langdon has over 23 years of middle-market private equity experience on Wall Street, and most recently was Managing Director of the $2.8 billion private equity fund Platinum Equity, as co-head of PLMM, Platinum Equity’s lower middle market investment group.

Roger Shah Urges Fans To Join In Global Collaboration Song

Roger Shah Urges Fans To Join In Global Collaboration Song

In a world where it’s hard to differentiate oneself within the global DJ scene, ROGER SHAH has done just that. His performances never fail to amaze as he merges the art of DJ-ing together with live arrangement. With one hand he plays his wireless keyboard and with the other he mixes a selection of roof-raising releases. His natural ability to blend mesmerizing melodies, pulsating basslines and groove filled percussion into dancefloor anthems sees him tour the world like a true rockstar. Ultimately he is humbled by the support of his fans who have voted him in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll for five consecutive years and gave him a double EMPO nomination for ‘Best Trance & Progressive DJ‘ and ‘Best Radio Show‘.

Roger Shah“it’s an amazing feeling and a driving force for me to know that there are so many fans out there supporting me as an artist, voting for me for the DJ mag poll but also writing to me how important some of my music became for them in their lives, helping them to go through hard periods and more. It’s very touching and this is why I’m doing what I’m doing.”

As a special gesture to his fans, Roger Shah invites everyone to participate on his new upcoming song called “Mueve Tu Mundo” (Change your world). The lyrics invite to sing along with Roger on the chorus. Fans can record their vocal part of the original chorus and send as mp3/wav/aiff files or videos. All of these vocals will be combined to create a huge choir with voices from all over the world. It doesn’t matter if one sings perfectly or not, as long as minimal effort is shown.

Roger Shah Urges Fans To Join In Global Collaboration Song

On the production side Roger keeps very busy. His vocal masterpiece that he made in collaboration with JES and Brian Laruso was released on the legendary Magik Muzik label and remixed by Egyptian trance kings Aly & Fila, Dutch producer Jesse VoornPedro Del Mar & DoubleV, and Roger Shah himself under his alias Sunlounger. The official music video features a sunny boat ride journey highlighting the beauty of Miami’s shores.

The Roger Shah and Aly & Fila collaboration ‘Perfect Love’ hit the Top 10 of the ASOT Tune Of The Year poll, while Roger’s cooler Sunlounger guise has released ‘Finca’ with rolling melodies, uplifting pads and hooky piano creating an altogether cooler progressive-house anthem in the making and massive support by the likes of Armin Van Buuren or Above & Beyond to name a few.

Only a few weeks ago Roger rocked the Ultra Music Festival in South Korea. Ultra which has its home base in Miami is taking its festival world wide with other dates including South America and Europe. Ultra Korea was organized at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium Complex. Other artists on the line up included Tommy Trash, Krewella, Fedde Le Grand, Afrojack, Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Kaskade and Pedro Del Mar.

Forthcoming gigs include Future Sound Of Egypt 300 in both Amsterdam and Mexico City, The Mellomania Summer Cruise in Germany and the Summerdream Festival in Switzerland. Moreover Roger Shah will make his debut for Insomniac Events, the promoter known for the massive Electric Daisy Carnival festivals.

Roger has been working for a long time on the new SUNLOUNGER album which is due for release August 19th on Magic Island Records in cooperation with Black Hole Recordings. With the Sunlounger project he had chart entries on almost every continent. Pre-order the album here: http://bit.ly/17ZC7eF

The first single release taken from the album will be “Sunlounger Feat. Alexandra Badoi – I’ll Be Fine.” Watch the teaser: youtube.com/watch?v=xhTTmdLUCjE

Roger Shah“I haven’t done too many shows this year because I wanted to have the time to deliver another outstanding Sunlounger album to keep my real Balearic fans happy. I hope that the trance family will appreciate my effort and show me some love and support me another year in this annual and important poll. It’s still like a dream for me that I was able to establish myself in this tough industry and to have a spot in the DJ Mag Top 100 for 5 consecutive years with a peak at #21.”

Now available worldwide, Anjunadeep 05, the new double-mix from Jody Wisternoff and James Grant, has hit #1 on the iTunes US Dance Chart in its first day of release. Featuring 29 exclusive tracks from Dusky, Tom Middleton, The Presets, Andrew Bayer, Matt Lange and many more, the album covers the best in deep house, electronica and melodic grooves that fit as perfectly on a home stereo as they do a 2am dancefloor. Each artist has also recently release a special mini-mix, previewing 5 tracks from their individual mixes.Jody Wisternoff’s mini-mix includes two exclusive new original tracks of his own, “We Are Heroes” and “Macbeth”, along with Alfred Taylor’s “Kuza” and Jody’s take on “Alchemy” by Above & Beyond. James Grant’s mini-mix features the brilliant “WYV AUW CHU” from Tom Middleton, along with Beckwith’s “Back To Love” and DAVI’s “The Time Has Come”.

On to the complete mixes, first up is label boss James Grant, whose annual compilation mixes are eagerly anticipated by the Anjunadeep faithful, and with good reason. Beginning with the beautiful chilled electronica of Croquet Club’s “Cardigan” (supported on BBC Radio 1 by Zane Lowe), Grant’s mix is loaded with exclusive original material from Dusky, Vincenzo, Tom Middleton, Beckwith and DAVI. The mix also features the exclusive Andrew Bayer & James Grant Remix of “It’s Cool” by Australian indie-electronic outfit The Presets, and two standout tracks from new talent Universal Solution. Grant’s mix is a measured and character-filled blend of modern melodic deepness.

Next, they welcome Bristol’s Jody Wisternoff to Anjunadeep mixing duties for the first time. One half of legendary dance act Way Out West, Jody has spent over two decades behind the decks, and his monthly ‘Intensified’ podcasts are a treasure trove of modern classics from across the house music spectrum. Bringing that sensibility to his first Anjunadeep mix, Wisternoff’s CD is a blend of sunshine-soaked deep house (San Francisco talent Lane 8’s brilliant “Be Mine”), melodic deep house (Alfred Taylor’s “Kuza”) and Good Looking-esque liquid jungle atmosphere (check Jody’s own rework of Skanna’s ’93 jungle classic “This Way”), with a garage curveball from current hotshots Leftwing & Kody and some deep washed out techno from Matt Lange and Andre Sobota along the way.

Dedicated to deep electronic grooves with emotion, soul and melody, Anjunadeep holds a unique position within today’s dance music world. Picking up rave reviews everywhere from Resident Advisor to DJ Magazine, the label’s releases regularly feature in the sets of the world’s most respected DJs. Solomun, Breach, John Digweed and Kerri Chandler are just some of those who have supported over the past year.

An A&R hotbed, the label is celebrated for releasing the debut artist album from Dusky, 2011’s critically acclaimed Stick By This, a duo that have since been described as “the toast of the UK underground” by Resident Advisor. They also nurture such talents as Matt Lange, Martin Roth, Beckwith and the exciting French producer Croquet Club.

Lange Recordings: 100

Lange 100Released by Lange Recordings on August 5th & 12th 2013

The label owned and A&R’d by leading international DJ and producer, Lange, is proud to present its 100th release — Lange Recordings 100, celebrating what is a major milestone for the UK based imprint.

The label has been built into a leading outpost for Trance since its inception in 2004, during which it has been a focal point for Lange’s own releases as well as being graced by fellow leading artists such as Andy Moor, M.I.K.E. and Gareth Emery as it continues to deliver a sound at the forefront of the genre.

What better way to celebrate the landmark than with a release package that not only toasts past achievements, but also keeps a firm eye on the future. With 20 tracks, handpicked by Lange himself, Lange Recordings presents a compilation packed with highlights from the past 9 years of releases, and if that wasn’t enough, they’ve recruited six of the label’s brightest young talents to dust off and redress 6 of the label’s past glories for two separate EP releases…

The Remixes Part 1 plays host to Lange Recordings classics, ‘Brandalism’ by Lange himself, Ben Preston’s ‘The Feeling Inside’ and ‘La Gomera’ from Steve Brian, remixed by Noah Neiman, Las Salinas & Tangle respectively.

Part 2 sees Jamie Walker, Johnny Yono & Stephen Kirkwood all remixing more recent releases from the catalogue by Johnny Yono, Noah Neiman & Lele Troniq, rounding off what are six essential updates.

This dual EP is perfect for any Lange Recordings fan, serving up fresh new reworks worthy of this epic centenary.

Q: Where do you draw your inspiration from to make such beautiful melodies?

A: My inspiration is in my surrounding, people I meet and many situations in my life. When I’m sad, I make music. That’s why it’s so emotional. My productions never come from nothing, they are results of my emotions in specific moments.

Q: What was it like to remix so many Enhanced classics on this compilation?

A:  I couldn’t believe that there’d be an occasion to collaborate with such a great label in Trance music, which is Enhanced. It was a wonderful surprise! I hope it’s possible to make such projects again in the future!…
