In 2012, Ariscan (Ste Hirst) formed a music partnership with Paul Pearson and combined their ideas together with one goal, to create uplifting progressive trance. Pearson & Hirst delivered their debut single in late 2013 aptly named ‘Pressure’ which was later signed by Will Holland & Tritonal’s label ‘Enhanced Music’. The progressive uplifter saw massive support globally and was later featured on Armin Van Buuren’s – A State of Trance Radio show. ‘Pressure’ saw continued support from Max Graham, Tritonal, Super8 & Tab, Lange and Ruben De Ronde to name but a few.
Following the overnight success of’Pressure’ 2014 showcased a new collection of singles and remixes, which were all successful in their own right. Another successful track followed with DedRekoning feat Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Only Child. The Pearson & Hirst remix saw massive support internationally and was featured as Above & Beyonds Group Therapy Radio’s ‘Push The Button’ track during the web vote from #ABGT094 It was then featured once more on #ABGT095. Below you will find all the previous release from the Pearson & Hirst back catalogue

Endor / With You
UK producer duo Pearson & Hirst and Digital Society resident DJs return to the label with an exquisitely built two-track EP displaying their prised ear for lush, melodic and progressive Trance.
Kicking off with ‘Endor’ Pearson & Hirst craft a gorgeously mellow yet moody track which builds around grooving atmospherics and resonate synth dabs. A hark-back to the classic Trance sound, ‘Endor’ opens up the EP with a traditional Pearson & Hirst drive.
Second on the EP, ‘With You’ explores a more ethereal approach filled with cosmic FX, rippling vocals and elegant melodies. Pearson & Hirst yet again prove their ear for the classic Trance sound with finesse.
Hot from their recent success with their ‘Endor / With You’ EP, UK Trance stalwarts Pearson & Hirst return to Digital Society Recordings with another impeccably grooving, progressive-tinted Original, ‘Your Embrace’.
Famed for their unique approach to Trance, Pearson & Hirst return to form with ‘Your Embrace’ in a mesmerizing atmospheric production glistening with a gorgeous vocal and classic hark backs. Keeping things modern Pearson & Hirst once again show their skill as producers in an almost effortlessly smooth track from start to finish.
Switching the tempo, Mike Sanders takes Pearson & Hirst’s Original on an adrenalin-fuelled journey through the darker end of Trance, injecting flared bass, skirting leads and gritty FX to result in a eloquently beefed up remix of Pearon & Hirst’s mellow Original.
It’s full steam ahead for Digital Society Recordings in 2015 with the likes of Pearson & Hirst. Lending themselves to a slightly slower pace than usual, this British duo bring a beauty in the form of ‘Mind Games’.
With delicate darting synths accompanied by a rolling bassline in an all-together calmer affair, this is classic DS-R elements in a totally new form.
While Pearson & Hirst continue to release forward-thinking productions, we welcome them with open arms back to DS-R with the stellar ‘Mind Games’.
Digital Society Recordings introduces an uplifting track from British production duo, Pearson & Hirst – Pressure.
This peak time club track builds to a dark and energetic breakdown with minor-key synth stabs dictating the atmosphere. When the kick drum returns, it’s all hands in the air for this driving trancer. As a resident Digital Society DJ, Pearson proves he knows what works on the dancefloor.
Massive support from Armin van Buuren on ASOT for this excellent release!
