Artists: Paul van Dyk ft. Johnny McDaid

Paul van Dyk is definitely one of the top DJs of our time. He is back with a new single this time with Irish singer/song writer Johnny McDaid. I first took notice of this track on his Volume: Best of PvD album (we will get to that next time). I am personally a sucker for vocal trance specifically with female vocals (hence my current addiction to all things OceanLab) but I also appreciate tracks with good male vocals. McDaid gives a good performance on these. This track has PvD written all over it; the formula he has works and continues to work. I must however question this release’s content 4 tracks with basically 2 mixes just at different lengths (radio vs extended) can’t feel nothing but being short changed by that. Maybe the track is still too new or maybe the folks at Vandit are getting lazy (I can’t imagine they don’t have the clout or that the track doesn’t have enough traction to be mixed by other talents in the scene). That being said the Kaskade treatment is nice and welcome but I still prefer PvD extended. I hope to hear more mixes of this awesome trancer.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
