Times have been changing fast lately but if life can creep up on you, it usually means you’ve been enjoying yourself. Anyways, I moved away from Boston for the second time in my life to a new city, working a new job… you get the idea. Life is good as it’s ever been but Ralphy and I certainly haven’t been spending as much time on porches together as we used to. Bummer.
So that’s why I’ll be getting back on the music blogroll – simply because I have no frame of reference for the deep grooves, fan parts, and NSFW snapchats Ralphy sends me.
Of course, we never stopped swapping tunes. I suppose music just became more of a private thing this past year with so much else going on – expect to see some oldies mixed up in the coming weeks as I play catch up.
Fortunately for me, despite the relative expansion of the genre, there are many players in the trance family who’s sound doesn’t change as fast as life does. Super 8 & Tab have been making me smile with their signature warm pads and playful breakdowns for years. S8T has been putting out some quality productions as of late, and their remix of BT & Aqualung’s “Surrounded” is no exception. I expect they’ll be moving up in the Top 100 this year – I know I voted for them.
An similar old favorite of mine they did last august to Tritonal’s Piercing Quiet:
Moving on, lucky enough for Ralphy (and also the rest of you) the duo responsible for his magical night in London’s Ministry of Sound is back with some new heat that begs for spring loaded dancefloor.

Then listen to this:
Then check out the full release of their new “summer of love” remix from last Friday – Wings by Tom Swoon.
To wrap things up for tonight here’s a remix I got a while back that I just haven’t been able to stop playing lately. Enjoy it while it’s still summer & Phil Chez is still on tour – Shoe Scene Symphony’s take on “It’s You It’s Me” by Kaskade:
