With the remixes to ‘Skylarking’ still sitting at the top of the charts (Ilan Bluestone’s has remained at #1 on Beatport’s trance top 100 for almost a week), respected DJ and producer BT has set the bar high for his ninth artist album A Song Across Wires. Releasing on Armada Music on August 16, A Song Across Wires is BT’s follow-up to 2010’s Grammy-nominated These Hopeful Machines.
As BT told Magnetic Mag during his visit to San Francisco to play at Ruby Skye in early June, “This is probably the first record I’ve ever made in my career that is focused solely on a club/festival environment. It’s my OCD pointillist, top shelf production esthetic applied to the current state of EDM. Lots of trance and progressive house and sprinklings of electro. These are all things that I both play when I perform and deeply love and listen too (which is incredible because for most of my career I have not liked what is happening at any current music in dance music). This feels like a moment where what I love, lines up with what others love and that in itself is exciting.”
