What happens when two generations of DJs come together for collaboration? Magic.

While many producers are getting closer to the EDM bounty, Standerwick and Chris Schweizer have provided their bold statement that trance is alive and going strong.

In a world where EDM seems to be dominating, with a decreasing amount of creativity when it comes to producing new tracks; the moment two producers join forces to create a massive trance tune which actually sounds original, it feels like a breath of fresh air. This is the case of ‘Predator’, born as collaboration between British legend Standerwick and Argentinian ‘promise’ Chris Schweizer.

Just take me back to the Old School… or maybe not?

Following his belief in “not to be a prisoner of your own style”, Armin van Buuren is releasing today ‘Old Skool’, a mini album with old school tracks, reworks of the music that made him step into electronic music but… will this trigger a revival or is it just a temporary fad?

We have seen along the years that many DJs have been experimenting with different styles, not always with the same amount of success.

Some artists have built their careers out of experimenting with music, while some others have stayed faithful to their original choice. Truth to be told, the path of producing music is about creativity and innovation.

The advent of daredevil raids towards different genres far beyond the boundaries of the DJ’s regular style, have also given birth to a group of purist fans complaining towards anything that lies beyond traditional or expectable.

At the time Tiësto migrated into EDM and Pulsar gave up on Trance music because the industry was heading somewhere somehow where nobody would follow, we witnessed different approaches to that natural change and dynamism. And change is not a bad thing per se.
