Alongside Ferry Corsten and Armin van Buuren, Lange was pertinent to defining trance music as a genre in the ’90s when the UK and Europe were the world leaders in dance music. As a result, the 15-year vet is one name in the scene that has continued to successfully reinvent himself, seamlessly evolving the younger generation of dance music lovers without comprising his artistic integrity.
For his third studio album, We Are Lucky People, the seasoned producer and DJ takes a different approach. Lange released a string of clubby singles over the last year, with nearly every single reaching the pole position on the Beatport Trance chart. While the double disc contains many of these hits, the real treat is the first disc, which sees each record reworked in ways that exemplify not only his pristine production skills, but also his talents for arrangements. The result is a melodic journey that creates a flowing concept long player.
While the eponymous double disc doesn’t officially release till Monday, VIBE’s got the exclusive stream of one of 2013’s most anticipated trance-rooted artist albums. Listen to it in full below.
