The yearly ritual of Armin Van Buuren is here as the year ends. The year mix 2010! 88 tracks, 3081 edits, 246 channels, 108 hours of studio and 120 minutes of 2010 essentials.

Ya know what kills blogging in me? It’s social networking, especially Facebook.

 MY MUSIC 

I've listed all the types of music that interests me here, and you may consider listening to them:

Trance:
I used to love Paul Van Dyk, but his tunes seem to divert off from the Trance genre at times. I've been a fan of Armin Van Buuren since, listening to his weekly radio show "A State of Trance" and also attended one of his gigs at Zouk Singapore. It was totally awesome.

Overall, I would say majority of music I listen to falls under Trance genre. I'm not a good lyric listener, so trance fits pretty well. I'm also attracted to trance tunes that is in some newer Madonna tracks and Hindi remixes. I started from techno, but seriously, some tunes were nice, but mostly contained senseless beats. Besides, it doesn't have the beautiful ambience that Trance provides.

You may download A State of Trance episode torrents from here.


New Age:
As for New Age music, I only listen to Enya and Enigma. I started listening to this genre ever since one of my friends introduced me to Enya's The Memory of Trees. Main component about New Age that I like would be the ambience. Also, I love the perfect voice of Enya, no matter what language she sings in!

I also enjoy listening to scores/songs composed by AR Rahman. He uses western instruments to invoke Indian music to his tracks. Some of my fave soundtracks would be from the movies Taal, Dil Se, Swades, Yuva, Takshak and Pukar.


Movie scores:
I've been pretty interested in movie scores ever since I watched the movie The Rock. I'll be looking out for the composer for the movies I watch. I'm particularly interested in the following composers:

Trevor Rabin
(The 6th Day, Gone in 60secs, National Treasure, Con Air)
Hans Zimmer
(Black Hawk Down, The Rock, Gladiator, MI:2)
James Newton Howard
(Vertical Limit, Blood Diamond, I Am Legend, Dark Knight)
Danny Elfman
(Batman, Spiderman, Mission Impossible)

Miscellaneous:
I used to be a fan of Michael Jackson for a very long time. In fact, my first CD was MJ's Bad album. I backtracked his song till the Thriller album and enjoyed all his songs till the HIStory album. I haven't been keeping in touch with his newer works as I've been busy with Trance and Hindi remixes :)



Another large part of this section belongs to Hindi pop music. I'm more inclined to remixes, as opposed to the original versions, as they mix more electronic music into traditional. I'm particularly on the lookout for the singers Sukhwinder Singh and Alisha Chinai for their unique voices.


My Playlist:
I've selectively added some tracks that I've been pretty fond of into this playlist. Of course, there's a whole lot more. I'll refine and expand this list slowly as time goes by.
