For direct orders, drop us an email at sales[at]sogrecords.com and we'll post one out straight away.  PAYPAL payments accepted only.


  TIESTO: In Search of Sunrise 5

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


  SNOW WHITE

teamSOG is off to the LOCARNO FILM FESTIVAL. We'll be there in our flip-flops and shorts at the cocktail party to celebrate the world-wide premier of the Swiss made snow white which features YELLOW BLACKBOARDS - superfly.

Check out the trailer on www.snowwhite.ch. It looks like a cracker!!


  01 October: SOGfiles MMV chapter II night, Laby, Zürich!

We get asked all the time when the next release party will be. Well here it is, October 01, hosted by:
- KASEY TAYLOR
- MENTAL X
- ANDRÉ ABSOLUT

Plenty of give away CDs so be there or be square ;-)



  SOGfiles MMV chapter II presents ALEX STEALTHY


(click for tracklisting)

This time, it's a DOUBLE CD!!

CD1 contains all those stripped down dubby monsters just like on the first MMV cd.

CD2 features 6 versions of ALEX STEALTHY's enigmatic ONCE, including the PARTS!!

And believe it or not, we're giving away full versions of the
* ORIGINAL DANCE right here!! (right click to download) *



  CATALOGUE No.

For the last year, SOGrecords had split their releases into SOGchrome (vocal) and SOGliquid (non-vocal) series.  However, with the market heading towards dubbier sounds, SOG has decided to bring vocal and non-vocal under the SOGchrome banner.

So if you get confused when you see the catalogue number on the SOGchrome jump from 008 to 032, that's why!!


  GLOBAL UNDERGROUND 028, SHANGHAI

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.
