ASOT 717 – A State of Trance Episode 717

ASOT 717 – A State of Trance Episode 717

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of A State of Trance or ASOT for short. ASOT was created by Armin van Buuren, a world famous DJ who climbed to fame at the age of 38. He’s been the winner of DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs, as the world’s #1 DJ 5 times, 4 of which were in a row. A State of Trace is heard live globally on Digitally Imported Radio and has won numerous awards in its 14 years of broadcast. The show is now on its 717th episode and has been the trance bible for fans around the world.

In my opinion, ASOT 717 featured some of the best trance tracks that have been released this year. The first one that stood out for me was Armada’s own MaRLo and his track ‘Atlantis.’ Recently, MaRLo has been featured in numerous A State of Trance and Electric Daisy Carnival events. MaRLo delivers another tune of epic proportions to the Armada label. ‘Atlantis’ displays sheer power alongside massive amounts of energy. It has truly earned its spot as the theme song for its name-sake; a brand new Trance festival in Australia. The track has been released already and is available on Beatport and iTunes.

Another track that stood out significantly is Kyau & Albert’s newest remix of Markus Schulz’s ‘Destiny’ featuring Delacey’s magnificent vocals. Markus has played it recently in his sets, as well as his own radio show, Global DJ Broadcast. ‘Destiny’ is one of my favorites from Markus as I can really relate to the emotions conveyed in the lyrics. When he dropped it at his infamous open to close set in San Francisco, the audience went wild! Markus Schulz is currently on tour, as is Kyau & Albert, so the remix will be available soon on the Coldharbour Recordings label.

The final track that is definitely worth listening to is Ferry Corsten’s ‘Anahera,’ in which he revives the Gouryella alias! As you all may know, Gouryella use to be a duo featuring DJ Tiësto and Ferry Corsten from the early trance days back in 1999. To my knowledge, ‘Anahera’ was featured first on Corsten’s Countdown and has definitely turned a lot of heads in the past couple of weeks! It’s set to be released on June 15th on both iTunes and Beatport.
