Joseph Crawford – Stars

Ranking amongst the industry’s top trance legends, Dallas native Joseph Crawford takes a spot on Beatport’s Top 100 Trance tracks amongst industry legends Armin van Buuren, The Thrillseekers, Jason Ross, Seven Lions, and Purple Haze. With multiple singles under his belt, the young producer delivers his massive vocal inspired single, “Stars” alongside his collaborator Kevin Black.

This original mix off Mashbuk Music was released late July and has since seen a massive rise in plays, streams, downloads, and purchases. Coming in at 128 BPM, this trance hit includes just the right amount of flair to earn its title among the industry trendsetters. With a perfect length, just under 5 minutes, the single explores the deep side of the trance world with a powerful electro drop, and a build-up laced with flourishing vocals and sharp instrumentals. A true festival anthem, this concoction showcases Crawford’s raw, production techniques – especially as the song nears the final minute.

Hailing from Dallas, Texas, this rising producer got his start with the release of his first EP almost 10 months ago, Free Fall. Since then, the Trance hit-maker has seen a ton of traffic with his remixes of The Chainsmokers “Closer”, and Noah Cyrus’s “Make Me Cry”. Now, with the acknowledgment from Beatport, the sky is the limit for this young go-getter.
