Lane 8 & Yotto – I/Y

This gorgeous track is what you get when you take an atmospheric tune and give it elements of house music. Daniel Goldstein, better known as Lane 8, is an American musician and DJ who has been active since 2012, whereas Otto Yliperttula, aka Yotto, is a Finnish DJ who has been around since 2014. Both DJs are considered bright representatives of the progressive house genre and and this was their first collaboration together.

I/Y is not really a new track, but it’s recent enough (one year) for me to ignore that fact. It is a beautiful track that starts shyly with atmospheric sounds and then little by little starts building up in euphoria. Give a listen below to this new member of the Electronic Mixtape.

Flotron – Local Symmetry

Eletronic music is a very broad genre, with more subgenres than I can be aware of. So, I have no idea how Flotron‘s exact subgenre is called, all I know is that it is emotional instrumental electronic music and that I like it. Particularly, Local Symmetry, which belongs to Flotron‘s Antinormal album, and I’ve been playing on repeat for a while now. I just find it soothing.

There is not much personal information about Flotron online, other than the fact that he’s based out of Austin, Texas. I understand this might not be everybody’s cup of tea, but if you happen to like this kind of music, please make sure to give Flotron a try.

Paul van Dyk ft. Plumb – Music Rescues Me

I don’t think Paul van Dyk needs any kind of intro. Matthias Paul, his real name, is one of the most renowned DJs in the world. However, from the moment I decided to include trance tracks on this website, I knew I had to feature Music Rescues Me. This tune from 2018 was a collaboration with Plumb, who is an American Christian artist who has sold more than 500,000 albums and two million singles worldwide. The song was also co-written by Johnny McDaid, who you might know as Snow Patrol‘s guitarist and lead singer of the extinct band Vega4 (and also as Courteney Cox’s boyfriend).

Music Rescues Me is a gorgeous and uplifting trance anthem that is impossible to get out of your head. It’s the perfect earworm for a Saturday night. Don’t believe me? Try it now and let me know how it goes.

Craig Connelly & Siskin – All For Love

Craig Connelly is a young DJ from the UK who started his career in 2010. He has a new album called A Sharper Edge, which features this great collaboration with Siskin, All for Love. It is a thrill-inducing track, perfect for a Saturday night.

If you like uplifting trance, you are going to love this tune.
