Lyrics: Super8 & Tab feat. Julie Thompson - No Frontiers

No frontiers
No battle lines
Aint no rules to this
Game of life
Aint  no rules to this
War tonight

No frontiers
No razor wire
Aint no rules to this
Game of life
Aint no rules to this
War tonight

So use your words as weapons
In these final seconds
Take your aim and fire
Shoot me down

So use your words as weapons
In these final seconds
See my bullets lying on the ground.

Pure Bliss Vocals Interview with Estiva:



Estiva (Steven Baan), of Reeuwijk, The Netherlands, has been welcomed globally into the Electronic Dance Music industry as one of the leading artists of Tritonal's Enhanced Music – “the label that delivers tune, after tune”.

With a much loved, personal approach and a loyal fan base, Estiva’s melodic, emotive and upbeat style has lead to consistent support from the industry’s biggest influences, including; Tiësto, Nicky Romero, Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Dash Berlin and many more – all whilst having tracks regularly featured on the United States’ pioneering satellite radio station, Sirius XM.

Estiva has established himself as an artist with a mature and intricate sound who’s able to consistently deliver eminent and forward-thinking productions.

...

Welcome Steven, It’s a great privilege to be speaking with you today. How have you been enjoying the summer season & 2014?
Hey hey! It’s been a different summer to me as I was in Australia for two weeks. And it’s winter there… So I guess I’ve been missing out on two weeks of summer, ha! I can’t complain though, I’ve been touring a lot and finished three new vocal tracks already!

Over the years you’ve become one of the hottest and most requested artists within the Electronic Dance Music scene. With numerous Top 10 Beatport tracks/remixes. But where did it all begin? What got you into EDM and who were your biggest influences? 

When I was very little I listened to the music my older brother listened to. I remember I was really into happy hardcore. Later on I discovered ‘In Search Of Sunrise’ by Tiesto and Armin’s ASOT. Around that time it was that I found out about some really basic music software. My brother saw me struggling and got me more advanced software (FL Studio). From there it took off and I kinda rolled into the career I’m in right now. It’s still my number 1 hobby too!

Fresh from Enhanced Music is your newest release “Feels Right” with Sarah Russell. The track has summer anthem written all over it. Another huge production from you. Tell us a little something about the track and the recording process? What was it like working with Sarah Russell?

I did a remix for a collab she did with Daniel Kandi some years ago. I absolutely love her voice and I’ve always wanted to work with her. About a year ago we started a track together but the final outcome didn’t really satisfy us. We still wanted to make the collab happen and out of nowhere she wrote ‘Feels Right’. I remember getting her demo and I immediately felt inspired. A few weeks later our collab was a fact! It’s been one of the quickest collabs I’ve done.

She’s crazy talented and her voice is really unique I feel. Like I said, I wanted this collab to happen and she was excited about it as well. And I think if you want something to happen that much, it will happen!


Estiva feat. Sarah Russell - Feels Right: http://enhan.co/FeelsRight-B


Earlier this year you released another vocal tune “Reach For The Sky” with Justin Oh and Abby Rae. It seems you’re a lover for vocals in a track. Do you feel they add something special towards the track?

Vocals add another dimension to a song. They make a track mean so much more with melodies, harmonies and obviously the words. A great vocal can make a song last longer. At the and of the day that’s what people will get hooked on and remember for years and years. People will be able to sing along and create their own interpretations!

For anyone unaware, you also host your own podcast “Next Level”. Tell us about the show and what kind of music we’re likely to hear? What’s the signature sound?

Diversity is the keyword here. In the 60 minute show I showcase what I like and believe me, I like a wide variety of genres! It still is mostly dance music as I like to create a flowing mix!

Also speaking of radio shows, you’re now on rotation to host Enhanced Sessions. Big congrats!

Thank you! Yes, I’ve had my fair share of guest appearances and takeovers but I’m now the official host once a month which is fun! Proud moment for me when I got the call from the office!

Recently you’ve been touring on the Enhanced Sessions Album Tour. How was the experience? What was your favourite city along the way?

It’s been a blast! Before the Enhanced tours started I’ve played a lot of shows traveling on my own so it felt really good to be on the road with someone you enjoy hanging out with. I’d been looking forward to coming back to Australia again for about a year so I was really excited when it finally happened! I remember the Melbourne and Sydney shows were absolute fire! The North American tour consisted of all debut city’s for me (apart from Ottawa) so naturally that had me buzzing too! It’s so nice to see people appreciate the Enhanced brand all over the world! And of course meeting cool new people and seeing great new places is one of the perks of my job that I can never get bored of!

You’ve just finished mixing Enhanced Sessions Volume Four with Juventa! What can we expect to hear from your selection of music included on the compilation?

Soooooo many exclusive tracks that no one except us and Enhanced have heard! I’ve included three of my own new tracks!

Pre Order Enhanced Sessions Volume Four: http://enhan.co/ESV4-CD


What other upcoming events/tours do you have coming up?

I’m playing at South West Four Festival in London tomorrow, which is absolutely massive! There’s going to be a new bunch of tourdates announced very soon, including Asia, North America and Europe!

Out of all the tracks you have done to date, do you have a personal favourite or one you’re most proud of?

I’m always proudest with the latest song I’ve put out. I still learn a lot every day when I’m in the studio and the latest song should always be your best track on the technical side of things. I recently remixed Mat Zo, which was a big moment for me though!

Do you have a favourite tune from 2014 so far? Or another producer’s material that without fail appears in your recent sets.

I’m in love with Porter Robinson’s ‘Fellow Feeling’ and ‘Fresh Static Snow’ as we speak!

Since becoming a DJ/Producer, what’s been your most memorable moment to date? Any events or funny stories you would love to relive? 

Too many! I remember Skrillex dropping by at my show in Seoul as well as playing 138bpm b2b with Ferry Corsten in Japan! 

Now that “Feels Right” has been released. What’s next? Any other original tracks or remixes to come from you this year?

I’m working on some instrumentals and I have two new vocal tracks coming up (Voices and Let It Go). Beside the usual dance beats I’m working on some Indie pop material inspired by CHVRCHESS and Electric Youth!

Music aside, are you passionate about anything else? Any hobbies or favourite past times you would like to share?

Cycling! I love my racing bike! I wish I could take part of the Tour de France or another big course like that! I’d finish last though..

Massive thanks for speaking with us today Steven. Once again big congrats with “Feels Right” and all the best for the rest of 2014. We look forward to hearing your future work. Cheers!

Thank you and speak soon again!

Lyrics: Rafael Frost & Ana Criado - Never Been Hurt Before

Lyrics: Rafael Frost & Ana Criado - Never Been Hurt Before



It is way past midnight
My thoughts won't allow me to sleep
Goodbye again without forgiveness
With its price, its betrayal and deceit

I am stronger than your lies
But I can’t fight the tides
Logic escapes me
While my heart confounds me

I gave myself
With all I had
Like I Never been hurt before
& I’ve tried to believe
Like I never had a broken heart
Kept coming back for more

Like I Never been hurt before

Tucandeo & Esmee Bor Stotijn - Northern Lights:



Tucandeo’s first outing here on Amsterdam Trance Records - ‘Awake’ with Molly Bancroft won them plenty of new fans within the Trance Community as they continue to build support with their melodic progressive sound. Their productions are well crafted with a fine attention to detail and we can’t get enough!


Here on the follow-up - ‘Northern Lights’ with the talented Esmee Bor Stotijn, they show us once again why they are becoming a respected name within the scene. With Matt Bukovski along on remix duties, the single turns hands in the air massiveness and a peak time stormer!

Aurosonic & Frainbreeze feat. Nina Schofield - Lift You Up:

Aurosonic Music is back and as we're still reeling from how well the debut release (Aurosonic & Neev Kennedy - Now I see) was received, the latest offering signals more of the same as Aurosonic teams up with Ukraine's Frainbreeze and last but not least the critically acclaimed UK based singer/songwriter/pianist Nina Schofield.
Classy is the word to describe this track, from the stunning production to the heartfelt and blissful vocals, 'Lift Me Up' shines brighter than the sun. Expect slick grooves, lush synth plucks, piano's and guitar melodies in beautiful chord progressions, seductive strings and atmospheres that bring a soothing laid back vibe while keeping a positive energy flow.
The majestic vocals of Nina really bring a progressive vocal anthem feel and you will soon realise why this unique and enchanting artist has been described as "Imagine a young (and easier to relate to) Tori Amos, with a dollop of PJ Harvey and a sprinkling of Kate Bush and you're somewhere around half way there....''
If vocals aren't your thing, the Dub Mix offers everything you need for those trance warm up sets or peak time progressive work outs.
Release Date: September 8th, 2014

Cat #: MPURE018
Beatport Exclusive: 22/09/2014
Release Date: 06/10/2014
Record Label: Monster Tunes
Format: CD / Download / Stream


We welcome melodic maestro, EDU, back to Monster Pure as he presents his first vocal led offering for us. Teaming up with accomplished American singer / songwriter Molly Bancroft, whose past works include collaborations with EDM greats such as Gabriel & Dresden and Andrew Bayer, we knew that this one would be a biggie and that it very much is!

The combination of songstress and EDM producer has wielded exquisite results, as “Give You Everything” is a celestial, heart warming, progressive jewel of a production, which shows off both EDU’s intricate production flare and Molly’s sophisticated lyrical prowess and heavenly harmonies.

These two literally, Give You Everything.

Neptune Project feat. Polly Strange - In Your Mind:


They champion the "vintage" trance sound, they've delivered remixes for Above & Beyond, Aly & Fila, and they've gotten multiple tunes supported by Armin van Buuren on A State of Trance. 

They are the Neptune Project and their sound is undeniable. With Polly Strange's soulful treatment and a quivering melody, this song will echo ceaselessly 'In Your Mind'.

Alex M.O.R.P.H. feat. Natalie Gioia - The Reason:

'The Reason' Alex M.O.R.P.H.'s name keeps popping up again and again throughout the years is simple -- his unique style resonates with crowds large and small, whether at a cool underground venue or playing numerous festivals all over the globe. 

Premiered by Mr M.O.R.P.H. himself at ASOT 650 Jakarta and featured in Armin van Buuren's upcoming 'A State of Trance at Ushuaia Ibiza' compilation, 'The Reason' (featuring Natalie Gioia's soaring voice) is alluring trance at its best.

NoMosk & Roman Messer feat. Christina Novelli - Lost Soul (Remixes):


The remixes on a beautiful track "Lost Soul" has arrived. Daniel Kandi debuts on Suanda Musuc with stunning remix, made in best traditions of Uplifting Trance. Daniel's remix isnt common to the original and remembered primarily for its melody which combines with sensual piano, unique leads and atmosphere pads, all these elements combined with great vocals of Cristina Novelli. 

 Rising star from Alexandria Hazem Beltagui, that recently more and more often appears in the tracklisting of the best radio shows all over the world, presents his version of the track. Here you can hear calm and melodic remix, which is best to listen to relaxing on the shore of sea, and enjoyning the vocals of Cristina that graced by beautiful Trance sounds with melancholy pianos. 

 Cold Rush Remix. After the successful remix of Roman Messer "Imagination",the guys return to the label with new awesome remix. This remix is intended to blow up the dance floor of his killer bassline and at the same time in climax it will make any listeners to cry. Illitheas Remix. 

 Another remix, which isnt similar to the Original, calm bassline with a pleasant summer melody nothing else than a good light balearic track, which will relax you with its gentle and beautiful sounds, and will take you away from the city bustle.  And in the end remix by maestro of Chillout, Eugene Likarenko aka Zetandel. Perfect harmony with a beauty melody and soft beats, makes this release are incredibly beautiful and memorable.

Out Now: Super8 & Tab feat. Julie Thompson - No Frontiers

Seamlessly blending modern big room ideas with vintage uplifting vibes, Miika Eloranta and Janne Mansnerus have maintained their pacesetter status at the forefront of the contemporary trance scene.

Having consistently delivered perfectly crafted peak time instrumentals like "L.A." and "Code Red" (alongside label mate Jaytech) in recent years, "No Frontiers" is a bold return to emotive songwriting; the first single to be taken from Super8 & Tab's second artist album set for release this Autumn. 

The follow up to classic collaboration "My Enemy", "No Frontiers" sees Super8 & Tab reunite with British singer / songwriter Julie Thompson. Charting the chaotic breakdown of an intense love affair, Julie's vocals echo the darkness of the main riff, culminating in a violent and volatile hands-in-the-air breakdown. 

Germany's Jerome Isma-Ae takes a more melancholic approach with his progressive rework, keeping the Original's spine tingling moments at its heart. Punctuating the mix with a poignant piano lead, this is yet another club ready remake from one of Above & Beyond's favourite producers.
