See the mirror in your eyes...

Armin van Buuren is a Dutch DJ that has been the #1 in the DJ Mag Top 100 for 4 years in a row up to 2010. He has a world famous podcast known as A State of Trance, which can be found on itunes. I've only seen him once, but he gave a spectacular performance that lives up to his name. He recently released his new album "Mirage", which I personally thought was so-so at best (though there some notable tracks in there). If you're into trance at all, you should have heard of Armin before... if not, try listening to one of my favorite songs by him and see if you like him!

Poison Dart Frog?!

Have you ever wondered who that blue little guy in my avatar is? That's a Poison Dart Frog, who can be found mostly in Central and South America. What caught my attention about them was their name... I thought they were frogs that shoot poison darts (which would be awesome), but they are called Poison Dart Frogs because they secrete lipophilic alkaloid toxins through their skin, which were used to envenom darts.

I picked the blue one because they look cool, but the most toxic bad boy of these frogs are the Golden Poison Frogs, or Phyllobates Terribilis. You know they're not messing around when they have Terribil in their name. The dosage of poison depends on the region but on average they carry around 1mg of poison which is enough to kill 10~20 humans (which by the way can die just by touching the frog). They only use their poison in self defense though so if you see these tiny, bright colored frogs, walk away!

Swedish House Mafia!

Swedish House Mafia is a group of 3 big name House DJs: Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. I've seen them play in a lot of clubs and events in the LA area and they're fantastic at what they do. "One" is their most famous track as a group, recognized by many as the greatest house track of 2010. I must have heard this a million times over several events but it never gets old.

Some notable remixes include vocal versions featuring Pharrell, and another with Dragonette (a mashup by a DJ named Kaskade). Both can be found on youtube if you're interested :)

All my friends said, you'd break my heart

It was nice seeing from yesterday's update that we have some trance fans here :D

I will probably post some dubstep or drum n bass next update to see what everyone likes. Feedback is always welcome and preferred, so I know what you guys prefer to see here.

It was INSANE seeing this guy's live performance. Literally everyone was dancing!
This is the one of Wolfgang's best songs in my opinion. I'll probably be posting some of his other tracks some time in the future.

Here's MSTRKRFT's Heartbreaker, Wolfgang Gartner Remix.

Drawn into the backdrop here...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the positive feedback on my first post :)

Tonight I want to share one of my favorite trance songs with you guys. It's a beautiful song by John O' Callaghan, remixed by an awesome DJ duo called Cosmic Gate. I've seen these guys live and they are pretty insane. Trance lovers may know this song already, and if you don't, I hope you enjoy!

This is Find Yourself, Cosmic Gate Remix.

Hi everyone,

I've always been interested in electronic music, but last year I really started to get into it. On this blog I'm going to post some of my favorite music (electro, trance, house, dubstep etc.) for you guys to enjoy. If you have any suggestions, feel free to post them! I'm always looking to expand my music collection. This is also my first time making a blog so please bear with me as I set up and get used to how things work :)

I'm going to start things off with this song because it was one of the first songs I heard in 2011 at a music festival. Enjoy!
