    Exclusive interview with Velvetine aka Myon & Shane 54 and Aruna for

    Lately people are always asking themselves who Velvetine is, without knowing that the Hungarian superstars Myon & Shane 54 and American female songstress Aruna made a band together.

    As I have learned from this interview, they are bringing something new to the table, a sound that is not “bound by the typical considerations of most club music” as Aruna said. “…we wanted to incorporate some of the more sophisticated musical elements that we like, orchestral breakdowns, unique chord voicings, unexpected chord progressions, mixing of parallel major and minor keys, this kinda thing.

    My selections from 2007 - trance and progressive:

    After spending a lot of time and effort sorting out the best from the rest, I finally came up with the following tracks as my favourite tunes of 2007 in trance/progressive:

    50. M Waering & Expanded - Remember This [JOOF]: This is a beautiful prog-trancer from the Swedish team. Deep layers of melody amidst some sparkling percussions and synth pads elevate it to something out of the ordinary.

    49. Jav D feat. Mat Zo - Silver Lining [AVA Recordings]: A beautiful, melodious prog-trancer by the Anglo-American production team of Jawad Dar and the young Matan Zohar.

    48. JPL & Serp - Distant (Acues & Elitist Remix) [KYR Records]: I prefer this remix by the Spanish duo to the original. A brilliant, colourful, melodic uplifting trancer!

    47. Miika Kuisma & Ollis - Take Another Look (Original Mix) [Subtraxx Digital]: Another beautiful melodic prog-trancer. This one by the Finnish duo Miika Kuisma and Olli Sovijärvi, has a very cheerful, sparkling vibe.
