Ripples (ft. Melissa R Kaplan) now available everywhere

This release is a breath of fresh air, and really makes me miss the days when quality vocal trance was the norm and not the rare treat it seems to be today – and that both mixes of this track are!

Derek Ryan – Azure on Beatport

Here’s what the blurb says:

American producer Derek Ryan returns on Echelon with his delightfully fresh single “Azure”. His debut EP Optera in 2010 had a progressive emphasis with a slight tech twist and was well received by the audience. The new single boosts things up with a striking drive and a wild bass line, not forgetting pungent melodies and rich textures. The original mix flows with ease, adding different elements throughout the development. The package comes with a remix by Ryan Mendoza who builds his interpretation of Azure on a steady bass gallop while the melodic side has a more classical trance approach. — 1. Azure (Original Mix) 2.
