Shingo Nakamura recently presented his "Only Silk 02" compilation on our parent label, including various tracks of his own. One of the most exciting contributions was "Tribute", a collaboration with rising Russian talent Stendahl. We're thrilled to present this track as a full single, including a remix by global trance phenom Gal Abutbul and occasional collaborator Mimram. A Silk veteran and one of Shingo's friends, Kazusa, also provides a wonderful interpretation.

The Original Mix is an uplifting affair from the very start, centering on soothing pads, a mellifluous chord progression, and fluttering arpeggio lines. In the main break, Shingo delivers a soulful, deeply romantic piano instrumental. After a short breakbeat interlude, the main chords re-appear with tremendous emotional resonance.

Gal Abutbul and fellow Israeli talent Mimram have teamed up on an inspired, peak-hour remix. A thunderous groove sets the tone early, as well as a variety of swirling arp lines. In the main break, we are met with the gorgeous piano lines of the original mix, as well as sweeping strings and heavenly vox. Finally, the ethereal soundscape makes way for a roaring drop.

Kazusa's "floating-on-air" rendering rounds out the package. He truly captures the light-hearted essence of the original, as a variety of delicate, beachside melodies soar above a gentle groove.

Abora Chillout was born almost exactly a year ago and has already grown into a label globally respected for releasing top-quality chillout of all kinds. From symphonic to electronic to ethnic to meditative to oriental to jazz, its music can be counted upon to offer a relaxing atmosphere, or even lull you to sleep.

Ori Uplift and New World have selected 13 of Abora's very best chillout tracks to represent and summarize what this first year has been about. Both established stars such as Geert Huinink, SoundLift, & Afternova and incredibly talented rookies such as Lea Gums, OppositePlans, & Balearia.

In addition, New World & Ori Uplift teamed up to create a truly wonderful continuous mix for you, which begins by lifting you up with some epic symphonic chillout, takes you to a lighter mood with a jazzy vibe, and ends with some sleepy meditative soundscapes that very well might lull you to sleep.

Their continuous mix unites and rolls together Abora Chillout's first year into a flawless and relaxing hour-long single piece and is itself reason enough to pick up this mixcompilation.

Nigel Good's latest contribution to our imprint, "One Minus Space," is the ebullient first single from his forthcoming "Nothing Out Here" artist album. Already pegged as one of the release highlights of 2014 on Silk's calendar, Nigel's album features a diverse collection of melodies and grooves. Yet, "One Minus Space" offers a fair representation of the overall uplifting flavor that imbues the entire album.

Already receiving a great response on YouTube via an early "teaser" video, this euphonious new cut begins with only a suspenseful lead chord progression and a delicate piano riff. An energetic progressive house rhythm emerges at the quarter turn, which leads the listener into the main break. All of the melodic elements, including the emotive piano chords, reach their full crescendo at this juncture, and newly added string effects are equally climactic. In the latter half of the track, Nigel spices up the soundscape with his signature vox stabs.

Chicago-based duo Brash Flair (a.k.a. Kristin Johnston and Joshua Wentz) recently released its second EP of the year, appropriately entitled Two, via the Sidedown label. Pulled from the EP, the dynamic pair have passed along the sophisticatedly intricate cut "Your Line", a sonic mosaic embellished with stuttering synths and lusty percussion, all filtered through a gritty sheen of lo-fi texture. The tune is further accented by Johnston's satiny vocals which lightly percolate throughout the course of "Your Line".

Russian duo August Rush, who have not-too-quietly been making waves in the global progressive community, present their first contribution to our parent label, a two-track EP. The lead track, "Booster", is exceedingly lush and groovy, seemingly inspired by a poolside weekend day in mid-summer. The track kicks off with a light and deep groove, as an ethereal vocal pad slowly filters into the mix. By the quarter turn, a warm, richly melodic soundscape has emerged, including a variety of flirtatious vocal stabs. The song continues onward in a slow crescendo, inspiring the listener to get back out to the dancefloor. The B-side track, "Time To Recognize", is a more traditional deep house affair, with a laid-back bassline and a plethora of filtered vox effects. This romantic and sensual track is more suitable for the after-hours.

Emirati producer Milad Maleki has been all over the place in recent months with releases on Monster Tunes, Blue Soho, and Edge EDM. He’s become famous for his driving energetic trance full of rolling bass lines and glitches. Not so many people are aware of the fact that Milad is a very talented chillout and symphonic composer as well. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you MilamDo in a way you have never heard before!

Presenting his new EP on Abora Chillout with typical Persian vibes, we have two tracks, each unique, each different, yet mesmerizing. The first one is an elusive "Pass Over in Silence". Close your eyes and let the ambient mood and glitched drum rolls take you to a place long lost. The other track on this release is "The Girl Next Door". Don't be fooled by its soft and eerie title; the track itself is as dusky as it gets! It includes chanting male vocal performance and deep Persian instruments sampled in a very innovative way. Milad again proves that he is one producer to watch out for in the future.

Danish star Schodt was responsible for our imprint's biggest release of 2013: his debut artist album, "Darkness | Light". A pair of favorites from that album have been given the remix treatment by two spectacular talents: veteran sensation Dan Stone and rising star AWD, both of whom hail from the UK.

AWD, whose recent work on Enhanced has been supported on radio by Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, and Chicane, contributes a euphoric interpretation of Schodt's "You're Brighter Than The Sun". The main vocal hook from the original mix offers a hypnotic start to the remix, as the percussion slowly builds behind it. Soon thereafter, we are met by a roaring bassline, punctuated by a delicate piano line. In the main break, the poignant piano riff is highlighted, followed by a rapturous layered trance lead, which carries the listener into the explosive drop.

Dan Stone is an especially exciting addition to our imprint's roster. A contributor to the mighty Anjunabeats imprint since 2006, Dan has been a fixture on the leading Trance & Progressive radio platforms for the past decade and continues to write inspiring and emotive music in that niche, as well as tour the world as an international DJ. His remix of Schodt's "Angel No. 8" is a mellifluous affair from the very beginning: vocal stabs soar above uplifting chords in the early going. The melodic layers continue to build, leading up to the main break. There, we are met by a powerful piano-centered chord progression, while ethereal pads fill out the soundscape. These elements join the lead themes from the original in the track's climactic moments, and then are fully unleashed in the jubilant drop.

The extensive and vivid musical palette of Blood Groove & Kikis is fully revealed on "Wonderland", their thrilling debut artist album. Over the last few years, the acclaimed Latvian duo have received global recognition for their work — ranging from peak-hour progressive trance to deep house — from the industry's leading producers and DJ's. You can now typically hear their latest tracks on the world's leading radio programs. In spite of this success, they continue to write visionary tracks, refusing to compromise their intelligent, deeply emotive, and exceedingly "musical" brand of electronica.

The listener needs to look no further than the album's opener, "Communication", to appreciate the broad range of sounds and genres that Blood Groove & Kikis continue to infuse into their work. The downtempo, world-music-inspired "Communication" intensely crescendoes, but never fully resolves, as if to fairly suggest that the "catharsis" is still to come. The second track in the album, "Velvet", is an homage to the "classic" melodic progressive house sound, for which Silk is most known. Blood Groove & Kikis offer their own stamp on this style, with additional lead layers and numerous side melodies. The lead chords of "Sweet Harmony" and "Chordplay" are rapturous; these cuts are followed by one of the album's standout tracks, "Sunlight", which perhaps best exemplifies the uplifting spirit of Blood Groove & Kikis's work.

The album pivots slightly on "Raindrops", which showcases the duo's deeper side, on which they have also built an international reputation. A sexy, late-night groove and funky guitar riff make this cut especially memorable. The title cut, "Wonderland", is presented next, featuring an almost overwhelmingly soulful and moving vocal by Richard J Aarden. The album's first single, "Free Like A Bird", is next in line, featuring first-time Silk contributor Victoria Ray; her heavenly voice perfectly suits the floating-on-air quality of Blood Groove & Kikis's instrumental.

The final quarter of the album features more exciting collaborations. Indonesian phenom LTN joins forces with Blood Groove & Kikis on "Both", which is also the subject of our most recent remix contest. Another renowned artist, Matt Fax, provides support on "Departure", the album's penultimate track. Both of these collaborations showcase the duo's more trance-influenced side and feature powerful lead themes, coupled with dancefloor-friendly grooves. Last but not least, Richard J Aarden makes his second vocal contribution on the ebullient "Afloat". The title alone is perhaps the most accurate one-word description of the listener's mood throughout the "Wonderland" journey. The album, as a whole, is a remarkable artistic achievement by Blood Groove & Kikis, master manipulators of mood and melody.

Garden of Elvar is a lovely piece which reminds you of fairy tales and knighthood stories. Subtle harp and strings create a lovely and unearthly atmosphere with a beautiful melody line written all over the track. A beautifully crafted piece! This one is sure to give you chills.

Sleepless Night is a piano piece accompanied by subtle string ensembles; again, Lea proves that she is a very skilled composer who knows how to craft a lovely atmospheric piece of music.

Silk Textures welcome talented duo Lanvary, whose last contribution to our label collective was on Silk Digital, with a standout remix of Derek Howell's "Stride". Their first EP with Silk features two lush and deliciously deep tracks.

The release kicks off with "Verboom", which centers on a gentle, yet hypnotizing bassline groove and atmospheric pads. The rhythm begins to pick up steam, as various outer-worldly effects spice up the soundscape. In the latter half of the track, late-night pads emerge as the most prominent lead elements, in addition to a male "narrative" voiceover. The B-side, "Rocky Rubble", is an even deeper affair; once again, there is an oscillating sub-bass layer that guides the listener's journey. A vocal stutter effect adds more texture, as well as a variety of Lanvary's signature dream-like pads.

Globally acclaimed talent Shingo Nakamura recently released his "Only Silk 02" compilation on parent label Silk Digital, featuring his original track "The Four". On Silk Royal's latest single, we're thrilled to present a new remix of this cut by Sundriver, another of our imprint's most decorated veterans. He has been writing euphoric, often Balearic-tinged progressive for the better part of a decade and looks forward to an exciting 2014, with several standout remixes arriving in the new few months alone. For the second track in the release, we've invited fellow progressive trance craftsman Talamanca, a first-time contributor to Silk, to remix Shingo's classic "Sapporo". Talamanca, like Sundriver, has enjoyed wonderful radio support in his career on some of the world's leading trance-centered radio shows.

Sundriver's remix of "The Four" asserts itself right out of the gate, with a driving rhythm, while uplifting pads and arps begin to infiltrate the mid-range. By the quarter turn, a symphony of melodic elements has conspired to overpower the listener with a lush and emotive soundscape. Yet, the track highlight does not occur until the break, when we are truly swept away by a light breakbeat, coupled with a mellifluous, Ibiza-influenced guitar riff. The stunning drop to follow features all of the melodic layers in harmonic unison.

Dutch talent Talamanca also starts his remix of "Sapporo" in driving fashion. We are soon met by several of the original's most memorable themes. Talamanca succeeds in making this interpretation his own by contributing numerous new variations on the lead motifs, all of which are truly breath-taking. In the main break, a powerful, trance-influenced lead is introduced, giving his take a bit of extra muscle for the dancefloor.

Blood Groove & Kikis return to our parent label with "Free Like A Bird", the triumphant first single from their forthcoming "Wonderland" artist album. Hosts of our Silk Textures radio show, representing our deep house division of the same name, the sensational Latvian duo have proven themselves equally adept at writing peak-hour trance and progressive material over the years. Just recently, Armin van Buuren supported their remix of 19 Hz's "Another Skin" during his "A State of Trance #650" Tour, and they have also been featured on Above & Beyond's "Group Therapy" on various occasions in recent months. Their latest single also features the gorgeous vocals of Victoria Ray, a first-time contributor to our imprint.

In the early going, a steady bassline groove provides firm footing for a poignant piano theme and a variety of uplifting pads. It doesn't take long for a mellifluous soundscape to set the stage for the introduction of Victoria Ray's ethereal lead hook: "I'm like a free bird, flying over the sky". Her stunning voice is given the full spotlight in the breakdown, along with the many melodic layers and themes, which only strengthen the atmospheric quality of Victoria's voice. The drop to follow offers a truly euphoric catharsis for the listener.

Ikerya Project - Lovely November - Abora Skies - 2013

Catalogue Number: ABSK003
Release Date: November 25, 2013
Genre: uplifting trance
http://www.abora-recordings.com/site/img/buy_abora_store.png http://www.abora-recordings.com/site/img/buy_beatport.gif http://www.abora-recordings.com/site/img/buy_itunes.gif

One of the most productive Serbian producers — Erik Iker, better known as Ikerya Project — is quickly becoming a solid name in the uplifting trance scene. His new release on Abora Skies proves that his unique style of uplifting trance is sought after by many around the world.

This riveting track captivates you from beginning to end. Its uniqueness is apparent from the very beginning, where magical vocals & a simple duduk sound draw you in. A beautifully crafted breakdown consisting of guitar lines, vocal chants, and intriguing strings eventually builds into a brilliant drop and climax, something Erik is well known for.

Lovely November is also very clubby, so you can enjoy this track in clubs too. At 6:15, this is one of the shortest orchestral uplifting tracks ever made, so everything is packed into a short space, delivering maximum impact.

Algerian producer Balearía adds a different touch with his ethnic oriental chillout Antiquity Mix. Forgoing the usual electronic sounds, he instead relies on ethnic & tribal instruments mixed with vocals. It's a mix of many musical styles & genres, including ethno, new age, chillout, oriental, and epic.

Abora is always open to people who live to experiment with music!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is "Lovely November".

Piping hot Canadian phenom Biologik continues to shine with "Stories", a gorgeous, soul-enriching progressive house cut. His latest composition follows numerous standout releases in recent months on Silk Textures, not to mention his 2013 artist album "Two" [Stellar Fountain], named by Beatport as one of the best albums of 2013.

Early on in the Original Mix, a cavernous bassline is joined by echoing vocal chants, which only reinforce the subterranean soundscape. Moody, foreboding pads join the mix, soon followed by the introduction of a stunning verse, delivered by Biologik himself. The groove gets chunkier and a few piano lines add texture, leading up to the main break. The titular vocal hook -- "It's in the stories that we say" -- offers a poignant climax.

Australian veteran Verve is a first-time contributor to Silk Textures, but his acclaimed work has been featured on various elite progressive house imprints (including his own FutureForm Music) over the past 5 years. A rolling groove infuses the track with a furious, club-flavored swing. Biologik's vocal is a welcome addition to the soundscape, as is the crescendoing top layer of the bassline, which greatly intensifies the mood. The anticipatory suspense is finally released just past the track's midpoint, when the chugging groove reaches its zenith.

Silk Royal's 60th release features a consistent contributor in recent months, Spanish sensation Vitodito. His first solo single on our imprint is romantically entitled "Tan Enamorados" (or "So in Love"). It begins, innocently enough, with a light, minimalist beat; as the song nears the quarter turn, a euphoric, layered lead begins to get filtered into the mix, as well as a flirtatious vocal sample, one of the most distinctive and memorable hooks. In the break, the emergence of additional bass layers, as well as a few more delicate side melodies, give the track some extra low-end and midrange weight. The drop to follow is unexpectedly explosive, which only adds more blissful vibes to the affair.

Orion Scott is a brand new alias of Full Tilt, whose memorable "Take Me Away" graced the esteemed Anjunadeep imprint last year. As "Timmy & Tommy", they also host a popular show on Ireland's Highland Radio and run a label of their own, Full Tilt Recordings. We are thrilled to present their work here, the one and only remix in the package. It kicks off with a filtered, 80's-influenced bassline, as well as a house-influenced rhythm section, while the hypnotic vocal sample from the original is teased into the mix. In the breakdown, the funky pad layers reach their full crescendo; all of the elements coalesce to "retro" perfection in the jubilant drop.

It is our great joy to present Shingo Nakamura's "Only Silk 02", the second edition in the annual compilation series, inspired by the acclaimed Frisky Radio show of the same name. A continuous mix of fourteen progressive and deep house cuts, written by a variety of celebrated international artists, "Only Silk 02" showcases the "classic" progressive house style of Silk Digital, as well as the signature deep house vibe of affiliate division Silk Textures.

Japanese sensation Shingo Nakamura is one of progressive's most beloved talents and an artist who has contributed more tracks to Silk over the last 6 years than any other. With an artist album and countless top-charting singles to his name, not to mention consistent radio support by many of the world's leading house, progressive, and trance DJ's over the last few years, Shingo continues to find inspiration as an artist, never failing to captivate audiences with his exceedingly emotive and visionary compositions. Leading, as usual, by example, Shingo features three brand new cuts of his own on Only Silk 02, as well as a previously unreleased remix by Talamanca of one of his most famous compositions, "Sapporo". Inspiring new productions by Arthur Deep, Dan Sieg (of Dan & Sam), Gal Abutbul, Outlook,  Asten & Stendahl also grace this year's edition.

Kelly Andrew - Beyond The Stars - Abora Recordings - 2013

Catalogue Number: ABRD067
Release Date: November 18, 2013
Genre: uplifting trance, orchestral
http://www.abora-recordings.com/uploads/original/buy_cd_button_png_1393107065.png http://www.abora-recordings.com/site/img/buy_beatport.gif http://www.abora-recordings.com/site/img/buy_itunes.gif

In this release, expression, execution, and emotional delivery are everything. Not surprisingly, Beyond the Stars was an instant hit with orchestral uplifting fans when supported by Armin van Buuren on A State of Trance.

The Original Mix sets the emotional tone using layered synth pads and rolling basslines building over a simple melodic pattern.  As it enters into the break, it accentuates that emotion with a beautiful melodic violin-like synth line that carries and transcends listeners to the end.

Similar to the Original Mix, the Emotional Mix contains an extended break that amplifies and maximizes emotion with meticulous execution using a beautiful combination of instruments: Piano, choir, cello, violin, and light synth pad; the Orchestral mix, with a gorgeous orchestral break and an expressive, intimate violin, delivers a more serene, relaxing, and calm experience.

A perfect harmonic blend of Uplifting Trance, Orchestral, New Age, and Classical-Crossover influences that will give the listener a true uplifting, moving, and transcending experience.

Cloudive returns to Silk Textures with a triumphant follow-up to his previous "Feelin Lovin' / Try It Again" EP. Better known as Trance & Progressive talent Aleksey Yakovlev, Cloudive has successfully re-invented himself as a veritable threat in the exploding niche of deep house.

His latest effort, "I Wanna Know", is another smooth and groovy after-hours gem, centered on a titular vocal hook. A classic deep house bassline helps to guide the listener along, as well as a variety of atmospheric pads. The one and only remix in the package comes from fellow veteran Zan Preveé, whose last remix for our imprint received radio support from Above & Beyond. A chunky groove gives his rendering plenty of dancefloor appeal, while a variety of light arps and vocal stabs fill out the mid-range.

Three previously unreleased tracks from Shingo Nakamura's forthcoming "Only Silk 02" compilation are featured in the latest edition of "Royal Selections" on our imprint. The tracks in this package represent the more up-tempo sounds that Shingo is known to play at the end of his radio mixes and live sets.

First out of the pack is Shingo's own "The Four", a naturalistic and slightly melancholy progressive gem that showcases all of Shingo's great gifts as a musician. More specifically, a deep, pad-centered bass gives the track a powerful low-end weight, while crystalline arps and delicate piano themes gently float overhead. In the mean break, the central piano riff is given the full spotlight; it's truly one of most poignant themes Shingo has written to date.

Next up is British talent Outlook, a prolific progressive house artist who is responsible for a stellar oeuvre since 2011. His stormy progressive trance contribution, "Dynjandi", begins with a punchy kick and driving rhythm section, coupled with a high-octane bassline. A hypnotic, one-word vocal sample slowly emerges; the sample is extended into an ethereal full phrase in both breakdowns. Meanwhile, the groove continues to crescendo, in full, peak-hour glory, while lovely side piano melodies fill out the soundscape.

Last but not least, we are pleased to welcome Russian newcomer Stendahl with a fresh take on Mango feat. Richard J Aarden's "Pillow Fights". A buoyant groove and chord-based lead, very much in the Mango tradition, give the track an uplifting, floating-on-air quality, while Richard J Aarden's plaintive vocal offers an emotional counterpoint. The breakdown is a true highlight, as Aarden's vocal gets a fitting solo, followed by a very creative breakbeat interlude.

An artist whose sound has come to define our imprint, Japanese phenom Shingo Nakamura presents 4 new dynamic cuts, extracted from his forthcoming Only Silk 02 compilation. The tracks featured here, including his own remix of Lessov's classic "Bleyban", showcase the deeper side of Shingo's versatile artistic style as both a producer and DJ. In addition, previously unreleased tracks by Arthur Deep, Dan Sieg, and Asten are amongst the "Selections" that made the final cut.

The compilation kicks off with a moody and exceedingly emotive new interpretation of "Images" by American talent Dan Sieg (of Dan & Sam). The Original Mix, a peak-hour cut by British star Toby Hedges, proved to be a widely supported single on Silk Royal. An ominous and richly cinematic soundscape is crafted early on in Dan's rendering, with an extended 2-minute intro. A cavernous bassline enters the affair at the quarter turn, which slowly begins to crescendo (only enhancing the foreboding textures). Meanwhile, the poignant themes of the original add further mystery and intrigue to the evocative atmosphere.

Shingo offers a stunning new interpretation of Lessov's "Bleyban", originally a standout track on our deep-prog division Silk Textures (supported on radio by Armin van Buuren). The atmosphere is similarly ominous early on, as hypnotic arps sit atop a floaty, pad-centered atmosphere. A classically beautiful Shingo Nakamura piano riff is introduced, as a stormy, yet deep bassline gives the track a hefty, low-end drive. These elements patiently gather steam as the track progresses and prove to inhabit the listener's soul by the end.

Arthur Deep, one of Silk's founding artists, triumphantly returns to our imprint with a gorgeous vocal take on SNR & Rikkaz feat. Jan Johnston's very memorable "Beautiful Change" release. Over the years, Arthur's taste has shifted to a deeper style; the soothing, sophisticated, and heartfelt character of his work has remained a constant. There is a floaty, uplifting quality to this particular remix that will make you want to share a glass of champagne with a loved one, as Jan Johnston's incomparable voice and lyrics add to the romance.

It is our great privilege to feature veteran talent Sound Quelle on our imprint for the first time, with a two-track EP. He has released music with Enhanced and various other elite international labels, often in the trance & progressive genres. This EP showcases his deeper side, at which he has proven himself equally adept.

The title cut, "Without You", centers around a delicate and beautiful vocal hook, which is a recurring vocal motif throughout the track. Early on, a classically "resonant" deep house bassline enters the mix, giving the track a funky swing. Adding to the mellifluous soundscape are various piano lines, which add a refined, dare-we-say "aristocratic" vibe to the affair.

The B-side, "Night Time", is a slightly more up-tempo cut, yet no less poignant. Gorgeous strings and crystalline piano melodies transport the listener to an underwater utopia. Sound Quelle has a tremendous talent for melody, and he offers numerous variations on the lead themes in this one. When all of the layers coalesce in the latter half of the track, the result is deeply emotive and cathartic.
