Marcus Santoro refreshes the melodic trance sound for Protocol Recordings with his new single “Blackout” ft. Lauren L’aimant. Santoro artistically leverages influences from progressive house, big room, and trance genres, which delivers gracefully undulating melodies, an uptempo BPM, and ethereal vocals. “Blackout” evokes the feeling of flying or floating, much like the trance tracks we grew to know and love in the early 2000s. This is Santoro’s second release on Nicky Romero’s imprint, following his debut “Shine” last year in collaboration with Sentinel. He’s already proven to be a talented and dynamic artist in the progressive sphere and beyond, so we can’t wait to see what Marcus Santoro has up his sleeve in 2020.

Trance Version Of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” — WATCH
Dash Berlin, Dubvision, and Emma Hewitt want to close 2022 with a flourish. These talents join forces to produce a brilliant cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.” Not to mention, the music video is a must-watch for Trance fans.
They just finished shooting the visuals last month in South Korea and the results speak for themselves. From the neon lights to the skyscrapers and busy streets, you can tell the atmosphere is on point.
Get lost in the sound and the hypnotic nuances of this fresh rendition of the ’80s classic we all love. Magically, it starts slow but the rhythm gets intense and steady until the end.
Furthermore, the bittersweet and deep lyrics stay almost intact. In my opinion, this Trance version is shaped by a unique vocal presence but also by the contagious chord progression.
Letting go of a relationship, that is meaningless or makes you feel confused could be some form of teaching that leaves the whole composition. One way or another, the new cover begs for eyes closed and arms raised to the skies every listening moment. Enjoy it!
