Let’s take a tour through Assaf’s catalog of magical trance music.

The following tracks show off Assaf‘s flawless sound which displays a maturity and connection with the audience that is usually reserved for decades-long veterans.

As you listen to Assaf, keep in mind the aim of progressive trance is not to focus solely on one lead melody, like traditional trance, but it is instead meant to cover multiple melodic elements to build the atmosphere. Also, appreciate how he includes lush orchestral instrumentation to project a musical landscape that is satisfying and thoughtful.

The first selected track we must showcase is Assaf‘s latest work that features Nathan Nicholson, called ‘Lost Souls’. This single was released on Assaf’s label, Black Sunset Music.

Now take a listen to, ‘Syndicate’, another masterfully crafted track that brings you to a state of trance. For this one, he builds an enduring uptempo beat comprised of deep synths and a heavy thump that will let you loose on the dance floor. He also layers in various enchanting samples to elevate us to a surreal plane of existence.
