We revisit Sasha’s “Xpander” in this weekend’s Rewind review. Released in 1999, it’s among the best trance tracks ever made. It’s lush, melodic and emotional, capturing the essence of trance music. “Xpander” has soundtracked thousands of dance floors, and was even performed live with an orchestra at the Barbican. Head to the link in our bio to hear its story. 📷: @latenighttalesofficial

In the early '90s, when dance music was taking root in Japan, Fumiya Tanaka started his DJ career spinning techno in Osaka.

Resident Advisor will take over the beach stage at this year's Strawberry Fields festival. After hosting showcases at the beloved Australian campout in 2017 and 2018, we'll be heading for the sandy side of the festival for a whole-weekend takeover of the beach from November 29th through December 1st. Young Marco and the Animals Dancing crew will get the festivities going on Friday, while Saturday sees SASS—Peach, Shanti Celeste, Saoirse and Moxie—soundtracking the afternoon for a seven-hour stint. Sunday heralds the first day of summer, with Wax'o Paradiso and Mark Farina & Mushroom Jazz billed. They'll join previously confirmed acts like Derrick May, Eris Drew, Octo Octa, Gerd Janson, Leon Vynehall and plenty more on the banks of the Murray River in Tocumwal, NSW, when Strawberry Fields returns for its 11th edition. 🍓 🏖 📷: @duncographic
