Art of Love Kills 20 at Love Parade.

On 25th July 2010, the Annual Trance Festival "Love Parade" which was held at Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany met with a disaster of stampede at a overcrowded tunnel leading into the festival killing nearly 20 and injuring almost 500 people.
The organizers expected about 8,00,000 Trance Addicts will attend the festival,but the number exceeded to about 1.5 million and the rumors say that the fire department had previously alarmed that the selected place was not suitable for the event.

Entrance was granted at 14:00 CEST (12:00 UTC). The 200 to 300 metre-long tunnel was the only entrance and exit point of the festival area.The parade area reportedly had become overcrowded and police at the entrance began announcing over loudspeakers that new arrivals should turn around and head back. The side of the tunnel that was the entry of the parade area was closed, but people continued to enter the tunnel from the rear, despite being told it was closed. A stampede occurred as the tunnel became overcrowded.

Cancellation :-
As a consequence to the human crush,Love Parade organizer Rainer Schaller said Love Parade would never be held again

Rainer Schaller -"The Love Parade has always been a joyful and peaceful party, but in future would always be overshadowed by yesterday's events,"
"Out of respect for the victims, their families and friends, we are going to discontinue the event in the future, and that means the end of the Love Parade."
Eyewitness,Salil Bhate: "People had trample marks on their face"

Trance Heaven On Earth Team expresses its deep condolences to all those who have lost their lives in this event.May their souls Rest In Peace and we grant our prayers to all the families of those who were hurt and killed so that God gives them courage to bear the excruciating loss.

AnjunaBeats Volume 8 Album Review

The most awaited trance album of the month is here and Above and Beyond are back with the bang !

The Idea Behind Creating The 3 astronauts comes as the compilation is mixed by Above and Beyond and The sounds being more space and dream oriented.

My favorite 5 songs from the album include(well I almost love all the songs but these are the best ones)
  1. Maor Levi feat. Ashley Tomberlin – Chasing Love,{well did I mention that Ashley Tomberlin who has provided great vocals in can't sleep,New York City Nights ,etc is working on her first solo album?}
  2. Above & Beyond feat. Richard Bedford – Thing Called Love (Club Mix),{From Above and Beyond's s 2nd forth coming album "Group Therapy" which is sung by the legendary Richard Bedford,who mesmerised us with his vocals in Tracks like Alone Tonight,Liquid Love}
  3. Oceanlab Feat. Justine suissa VS. Passive Progressive – Sky Falls Away,{I have always loved Sky falls down but this mash-up is killer!}
  4. David West Feat. Andreas Hermansson – Larry Mountains 54 (Juventa Remix),{The same song was included in The AnjunaBeats collection volume 3,but this remix is far more better}
  5. Above & Beyond presents Oceanlab Feat Justine suissa VS Gareth Emery pres. OceanLab – On A Metropolis Day,{Probably the Mash up of the year!This sets as a example that mash-ups can sometimes be better than original tracks}

Cutting long story in short,This album is superb and uplifting with not only angel like vocals from Justine suissa, Ashley Tomberlin,Richard Bedford ,etc ;but also melodic Dreamy Music with Djs like Above and Beyond,Super8 and Tab,Andrew Bayer etc. and a must-have Trance Compilation.

Trance Heaven On Earth Rating 9.5/10 Stars.

Vandit Records(Germany) joins forces with Armada Music(Dutch)

Vandit Records,A Record company by Legendary Paul Van Dyk joins hands with Armada,the record label of no# 1 Dj Armin Van Buuren.
Now a million Dollar Question,"will the business alliance gainful for the actual Consumers?For all those who prefer buying Original CDs/DVDs and Download form legal stores like iTunes,will this be fruitful?" and the biggest question comes out that"what difference does it make after the alliance?will it improve the Trance Community?".

Is the alliance made to gain some monopoly in the Trance Music Scene?One of may pals who is into Psychedelic and Goa said "most of these(goa/Psy,etc ) tracks are released underground and Most of the popular Trance Genre released these days are Uplifting and progressive.Even at radio shows like State of Trance and Trance Around the world,they do not often play Goa and psychedelic Trance.So whats in for us with this alliance?"

So now The Record labels have joined their hands can we expect song which features Paul van dyk and Armin both?

Well,as i said there are many questions left unanswered and as the time passes by they will be answered.

I have always been a Fan of Paul van dyk ever since i remember listening to Trance and i consider Armin My god.Hope this alliance beings us something special.

Here are some words from both the company's Managing Directors...

Paul van Dyk, managing director of VANDIT: “Two power houses of electronic music join forces. The symbiosis of creative power, expertise and market impact by VANDIT and Armada Music will set a new milestone in electronic music”.

Maykel Piron, Managing Director of Armada Music: ”For 10 years, VANDIT has been releasing high quality music. It’s a great honor to continue building up this fantastic brand together with Paul and his team”.
