The latest in this year’s string of trance tours came with Infected Mushroom and Ronski Speed, who treated Sydney to a show at The Metro: the premier venue for all things electronic.

The night started off in the Genesis room with Thomas Knight and Nick Arbor. The pair dropped a wondrous flow of progressive and vocal trance, with tunes including Ferry Corsten’s Punk, Arty’s Rock N Rolla remix and Dustin Zahn’s Stranger to Stability with the Len Faki Podium mix.

As Tommy and Arbor closed off their set, Ronski Speed graced the decks, quickly delving into some great hands in the air stuff that got the crowd singing along and enjoying the wonderful musical progression that trance has to offer.

Ronski had served us with platefuls of luscious vocal and progressive tunes from the likes of Armin van Buuren and Sharon Den Adel’s In and Out of Love, Ronski’s own Voom, and the tracks that got the crowd really going and singing along included Gareth Emery’s Concrete Angel, Above & Beyond’s On a Good Day, Thing Called Love and I Can’t Sleep.

Meanwhile, in the main room Lui dropped some superb hard trance/psy-trance, warming the crowd for the main act. Infected Mushroom took to the stage and played a wicked live set: the crowd were singing along, with hands in the air the whole set through. The set up was cool, with a large illuminated mushroom at each end of the stage.

Overall, it was a great night. The only problem was the poor sound management, with things getting way too loud throughout the venue, almost unbearable in the side room and in the main room, Amit’s vocals were drowned out. Nonetheless, the crowd clearly enjoyed themselves, making for an easy night out.
