Cosmic Gate Release 4th ‘Wake Your Mind Sessions’

This time last year Cosmic Gate had to write you a big, fat ‘IOU’. Sat in the customary spring release slot for their mix-compilation annual was ‘Forward Ever, Backward Never’ – the group’s 20 years-crowning artist album.

So #WYMS had to time-out for a year, but fast-forward twelve months and Nic & Bossi are ready to make amends. Outside of club engagements, remixing Armin van Buuren’s ‘Something Real’ and releasing their chart-topping single ‘Your Mind’, they’ve spent the last few months shaping an exceptional, block-busting and potentially series-beating fourth edition.

Now as those ‘in-the-know’, know, there’s your ‘drag & drop’ compilations and then there’s your higher-achieving, super-evolved, labour of love music compilation albums. ‘Wake Your Mind Sessions (it’ll come as no surprise to learn!) is very much the latter. Combining the latest ‘n’ finest from some of the world’s foremost producers (Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Grum, Spencer Brown, Dosem, Genix and others), it also ups its track ante with music plucked desk-hot from the studios of Cosmic Gate’s most dependables’. It’s also the premiere point for their own purpose-built creations and new Wake Your Minds Records signings – all of which are hand mixed to dual-disc perfection.

But hey, ‘talk is cheap, get with the action’, you say! No sooner said than done! For early pre-order adopters, three instant-grats from the album (gardenstate’s ‘Delta’, ‘Paradigm’ from Kolonie and Cosmic Gate’s own ‘Your Mind’) are already available. Further, giving you an ear/lip-smacking foretaste of all that’s in store, track clips are available here and you’ll find the compilation’s full rundown spec below.
