Nightcore and Akira Sun take trance to a new level

If you’re a big music fan you know styles have sub-genres. I have an ex-boyfriend who was a big metal head and keeping up with all the different types of heavy metal was maddening. But I’ve never heard the birth of a sub-genre until this week when I was introduced to ‘nightcore.’ At first listen, it sounds like the high energy keyboard-driven beats of trance. But according to DJ/producer Akira Sun nightcore is really a form of sampling made popular in the hip hop world.

“I involves taking other people’s music and changing the tempo and changing the pitch.”

Akira Sun, however, gives this treatment to his own productions on his latest release Nightcore Vol. 1.  Each song in this eleven song collection drips trance infused beats and inspires dance floor red alerts. His goal is to make this current underground style much more commercially available to dance music fans.

“I am the first DJ/Producer In the World to make nightcore commercial,” he explains. “It’s my ambition to make it more internationally known.”

Hot tracks include Lonely Nights, Ocean Girl and Voyage. Catch a sampler of it on his Youtube page and, as always, I’ve got your downloadable track below.

Take a trance Voyage with Akira Sun

Listening to Voyage by Producer Akira Sun reminded me of my freshman year, popping ex and staying out all night at local raves. While a lot of Trance music sounds totally stale and overproduced, Voyage pumps a vicious melody that will pack the dancefloors. An instant classic, the EP features six awesome remixes by DJ Liquid Cosmo.

Akira Sun is one of the more successful DJs and producers in the trance music scene. Founder of the now defunct act Paradise, he began his career in 1998 as a producer and DJ. In 2006 he founded his own sublabel, House of AKIRA, at ReasonMusic – which is handling the realease of his current EP. If you’re anxious to get your next party moving, you owe it to yourself to check out Voyage by Akira Sun. It’s available now at digital stores like, iTunes, Beatport and Amazon. Listen to a track free below.

... Welthits wie "Marina","Quando Quando" aber auch weniger bekannte Nummern aus den 50er und 60er Jahren, die schon etwas Patina angesetzt haben, klingen in Carlos Version druckvoll, frisch und zeitlos ...
