What's Up with OHM Music?

Out of fear for sounding or portraying a bias to our friends at OHM Music, there has been a hesitation to constantly feature tracks and artists on their roster. However, they are creating quality trance music, and deserve to be highlighted. In fact, as many posts on this blog suggest, trance music as a whole has been on a roll for quite some time.

"38 Below Zero" by Apollo Nash should immediately added to your collection.  This track aligns with the modern sound by the label while maintaining the authenticity of trance.

"Pari" by Josh Bailey is one of the trance tracks that also aligns with the sound of the label while sustaining artistic integrity to the trance music genre. These melodic layers and distinctive beats harnessed into one track deserve to be added to your collection.

"In Dreams" by Danilo Ercole & OMAIR featuring Bev Wild is the perfect collaboration of melodic layers, beat drops, and great vocals.  Many revere vocal trance as some of the most inspiring and pure trance music available. You should be the judge when you add this track to your collection.

"Our Reflections" by MBX provides an interesting take on the themes that can inspire and create a trance track. The fundamentals of melodic layers and beat drops still hold strong while meeting the standards of sound set by the label. When this track is officially released on October 5th, please make sure to show your support like you have to the previously mentioned tracks.

To support and add all of these tracks to your collection, please head to Beatport in addition to all streaming services out there such as Spotify.

Eminem and Sir Paul McCartney?

This blog has been focusing on trance music for quite some time, but as it is an all encompassing music blog, it's time to switch it up.  The joy of being eclectic presents these two questions. Have you listened to Eminem's new album 'Kamikaze'? Have you listened to Sir Paul McCartney's new album 'Egypt Station'? 

The absence of Eminem over the years or the thought he had lost his touch led the drop of 'Kamikaze' to surprise most of us.  The mix of clever rhymes and intricate beats cannot help but bring back memories of early releases of yesteryear. Especially with his call out of other hip hop/rap artists to bring back the art of battles.  Highly recommend checking this album out!

Sir Paul McCartney is a former member of the Beatles and more importantly a musical hero/legend. 'Egypt Station' brings the concept album back, and even if you avoid respecting longevity, you will love this album. From the songwriting, to the vocals, to the musicianship, the entire team should pat themselves on the back. Highly recommend this album as well!

Note: Both albums can be found where ever you buy or stream music these days.
