It's been nearly 18 months since the previous post like this, but we are now at a point where we desperately need your help. We now only have enough funds for the month of December and that is it. Only once in the last 6 months have we reached our donation target, which has resulted in a decline of built up funds from the previous fundraiser.

We reach out to all members who can afford to help us keep the project online by donating what they can, but in the same sentence entirely respect the massive effort already undertaken by some users who already donate regularly.

Crystal Clouds is a not-for-profit project ran by supporters of the genre who have no requirement to make money from invasive adverts or use your data for any malicious reason. We even respect the right for anonymity, so that you can simply enjoy the music.

Therefore, we ask kindly that our hardware overheads of approximately $100 monthly are contributed to by our users in order to keep the project online. If this is not possible, we do not stop you from enjoying the music, but we restrict your access to locally hosted data with a download limit of 10 downloads daily.

Resonate 10 – CD Album


Now if Winter has you minded of an album that sits at the deeper, darker end of trance’s atmosphere, well, think again.

In title as in tone, it categorically spans the spectrum, but on balance, is far more absorbed in spirited elevation than other ethers. For every track with a more peak-time conviction (‘In Madness’ by way of example) there’s two like ‘Winter Gates’ or the recently DJ Mag Money Shot-scooping ‘Golden Leaves’ who chart a melodic course. Likewise, piano-led poignancy like ‘November Rain’ always comes counterweighted by numbers like (lead single) ‘Shine’, ‘Colors’, ‘Ode To The Sun’ and others.

As with his disc on last year’s’ Subculture’ compilation (and some might say a debut Cold Blue album in all but name), the release is created & served to flow like a DJ set. (Indeed digital formats include a continuous mix of the album). Notable only by their absence are co-writers & collaborators. All eleven of ‘Winter’s desk-fresh tracks have been produced exclusively and singlehandedly by Cold Blue. A conscious decision from its outset, it’s allowed him the tight reins needed to cast winter not in a new light, but, for him, in the right light. 


01. In Peace
02. Shine
03. Winter Gates
04. Golden Leaves
05. November Rain
06. Frozen
07. In Madness
08. Colors
09. Recovery
10. Ode To The Sun
11. Reflections

Aly & Fila are proud to present their sixth studio artist album, “It’s All About The Melody” which will be released on Monday 25th November this year on their label Future Sound Of Egypt. Two years have passed since the trance pharaohs released their last long player, meanwhile the duo have been hard at work in the studio creating a formidable array of 15 dance records. Their vision for this stunning piece of music is as simple as the title suggests; to produce and mix melodious dance music that centers on their melody and musicality.

The album features many Aly & Fila hit singles such as the vocal sensations “Gravity” with Deirdre McLaughlin and “Breathe” with Chris Jones, but it also yields ingenious instrumentals like “Te Espero Aqui” and the ultimate track “Finally”. “It’s All About The Melody” doesn’t shy away from collaborations either as Aly & Fila have teamed up with some of the most respected artists in the industry from James Dymond on their track “Wasteland” to songstress JES for “I Won’t Let You Fall” in the incredible uplifting mix.

Aly & Fila have certainly proven their ability not only as international, world class DJs but one of the best production duos of today.

Future Sound of Egypt 600 - Sands Of Time CD


ISOS has changed one aspect for 2019. Its fifteenth musical quest has broken with its well-established release tradition, picking up an autumn spot. Notably along with its November 08 release, it’s also adopted a different aesthetic. Cooler, yet more refined musically? You decide. But in terms of ways to wrap up your 2019, you could hardly ask for more.

Returning after last year triumphant showing, Markus Schulz again assumes responsibility for its opening mix. Taking over from Gabriel & Dresden’s middle disc spot is Jerome Isma-Ae, while Finland’s Orkidea brings his ice-cool nous to the third. As ever, the release holds a spyglass to the mixers’ own release horizons. Alongside is music from a galaxy of ISOS-clued producers - Ferry Corsten, Bicep, Paul Oakenfold, SolarstoneBT, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Jam & Spoon, Yotto and Henry Saiz among them.

In many ways ISOS’s musical ethos is paradox. Chilled yet with a unique energy, never too ‘up’, never too ‘down’, balance (not only a trance cd) its absolute essential, its new format requires its DJs - each with their own identity - to work as one. No small ask, yet miraculously, this year as last, musical alchemy’s occurred.
