In the late spring of 2015, Paul van Dyk brought the electronic music world his third generation of dancefloor ‘Politics’. Through his “captivating” (MIXMAG), “10/10” (FAZE Mag) seventh studio album, in equal measure he enthralled fans and delighted the music press. Containing many a new PvD classic-in-the-making, ‘The Politics Of Dancing 3’ also set in motion the globe-spanning POD3 LIVE tour, which, to-date has reached 30 shores or more.

How do you ‘remix’ the time-established format of the music compilation? Well, if you’re currently one of the hottest, most forward-thinking DJ minds out there (and your name’s Jordan Suckley!), the answer is in fact beautifully straightforward…
This year has already seen Jordan drop multiple crowd-thrilling productions, whip-up Beatport chart-topping remixes and ace one Damaged Records floor-whacker after another. To cross the bridge into 2016, the Liverpudlian luminary has another masterstroke up his sleeve… and its ingenious as it is original.

To scene-wide delight, September saw Richard Durand launch his artistic revolution through a new label; it’s debut single, ‘Face Of Chaos’ and a raft of other musical measures and endeavours!
Over the course of this summer, two producers, each well known in other areas, have embarked on their own individual avant-garde musical journeys. Now, under the aegis of Black Hole Recordings, the inimitable styles of the two come together through the next single to be taken from the astonishing ‘Myrki Heima’ long-player.
Rewind, just 5 short years, and the expression ‘Pure Trance’ was no more than one artist’s encapsulation of his own output. Over the course of the following 12 months that solidified into his mission statement, before he catalysed it into a scene-wide, ‘brighter day’ battle cry. It tapped into the fans shared consciousness, caught the current and nailed their prevailing mood: Pure Trance had become pure zeitgeist! With rolling-boulder momentum, it gathered pace, hijacking Trance’s centre-ground. Now, (still, at just the tender ‘age’ of 4), Pure Trance has established itself as the genre’s new bedrock… And a firmer one, few could wish for.
