SOGfiles MMVI presents BRISKER & MAGITMAN
I'm telling ya, "... we're a progressive label..." but those Big-Boys of trance just can't keep their hands off can they?!
Last year, TIESTO had asked for the WALSH & COUTRE - Burn for his #4 but it didn't quite work in the mix. But this year, it'll be ALEX STEALTHY's sinful Something Is Wrong from his Kaleidescope EP.
To commemorate, we're going to releae a limited, previously unreleased version called SOMETHING IS WRONG PART II.
KEENAN vs ANDERSON feat ENDC - "Drift Away"
Available on our SOGlableshop
Possibly SOG's tune of the year, this one's been touted as TUNE OF THE SEASON by PAUL VAN DYK even before we've released it. And too right: we've had girls coming up to the DJ booth in tears after hearing this one. If you need a little help on the "ladies" (laidies?) front, then this one's for you. Stick this in your box and you'll be the "sensitive" man of the moment, guaranteed or your money back!
Stellar mix from STEL & GOOD NEWZ on the flip. Thanks guys!!
Wrap-up 2005 - is SOG going mainstream?
Don't know what happened in 2005. We've been lovin that chunky electro sound that seems to be defining "progressive" at the mo but our traditional trancy sound has been grabbing headlines on the Big-Boys-of-Trance front.
After picking up "burn" and "superfly" for his POLITICS OF DANCING, PAUL VAN DYK has been calling us "the label to keep an eye on". TIESTO originally wanted "burn" for his IN SEARCH OF SUNRISE 4, ARMIN VAN BURREN is going nuts for STEALTHY's "able to forget" and JOHN 00 FLEMING writes us love letters...
Well, we're only too happy too oblige and it can only do the world good to feed something nutritional to the masses ;-)
Paul van Dyk: Politics of Dancing 2
Don't know what it is but we seem to be doing something right at the moment. TIESTO asked us for tracks for his latest compilation, JOHN 00 FLEMMING wanted some too ... but PAUL van DYK wanted 3!!
In the end, he took two, and you'll find them on his POLITICS OF DANCING 2.
- YELLOW BLACKBOARD - superfly
- WALSH & COUTRE - burn
(click for tracklisting)
For his latest GLOBAL UNDERGROUND compilation, NICK WARREN originally asked us for 3 tracks:
YELLOW BLACKBOARD - Superfly
GLAMOUR TO KILL - In Your Eyes (sept 2005)
ALEX STEALTHY - once
In the end, he only took ALEX STEALTHY's incredible ONCE. Check it out on GU.
For those who noticed on the GU cover that the version of ONCE is the "sunseeker rmx", this is a mistake. It is the "original dance" version.
The SOGfiles MMV is a collection of unmixed tracks put together foremost for DJs from the progressive trance scene who play mostly from CD.
To make it interesting, there are several exclusive tracks and exclusive dubs never before seen or heard ;-)
1. STEALTHY + SIBERIAN SON + DARIUS - going home
2. GREED FEAT LESLEY - i see you (MINILOGUE rmx)
3. NOCANDO - living in a new world (GREED vs MERCURIO)
4. INKFISH VS DAVID WEST - aftermath
5. GREED FEAT LESLEY - tea in the sahara (KASEY TAYLOR & CHRIS MEEHAN dubrub)
