No Strings Attached
Ok so I'm going to do something many of you (especially Prez) may hate. I promised one trance post and today this promise shall be fulfilled. Of course this wont be any shitty tiesto or Armin van Buuren(though I like him. Don't judge me). No, this group is less known and probably would have been a garage band had it not been for the beautiful voice of the singer. Today, I am talking about 4 strings. Who are they? You'll find out soon enough.
4 strings is a mildly successful group of two DJ's,Carlo Resoort and Jan De Vos (predominately Resoort), as well as a singer,for a short time at any rate, Vanessa Van Hemmert. 4 Strings has made three albums,several singles and a plethora of remixes. This group exploded because of Vanessa's singing on their first single, Take Me Away (sound familiar? I posted a mashup of it and Glenn Morrison's Contact a while back) Vanessa would sing up until 2004, when bad rumors leaked out her not singing on several 4 strings tracks, eventually leading up to her leaving. 4 strings still continued without her and produced their third album, mainline, with guest vocalists helping with their songs. 4 strings continues mixing and making tracks to this day, though they have lacked the same amount attention they used to have with Vanessa. I think that's a good enough bio, now on to some tracks. Caution: You may fall in love with Vanessa's lovely voice. You have been warned.
