Delirium: Summer Trance is the new mix compilation by dj and producer Dave Pearce.

It features tracks by some of the biggest names such as Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk and Markus Schulz alongside up-and-coming producers including Farius, Ben Hennessy & Sensi.

“Trance music is in a great place in 2016. It has been exciting putting together an album mixing established names alongside a multitude of hot new artists from around the globe,” explains Pearce.

“I’ve tried to make the album a musical journey that reflects the many dimensions of today’s trance scene opening with some beautiful progressive trance and powering through to some uplifting beats. These are some of my favourite tracks from the last couple of months. No other dance music has the ability to give you those goosebump moments.”

Pearce has contributed 3 tracks to the album himself including his Beatport Top 5 anthem Trance Sanctuary, The Trip and forthcoming collaboration with Farius called Florecer.
