    I love how every time yet another personality from a right-wing angle performs an actual literal crime or act of hate speech, the response is "ahh, but the left the left the left", despite the fact that it's always the right doing these things.

    System F - Adagio For Strings [Flashover Recordings]

    I found it a nice touch that William Orbit played the (original) Ferry Corsten remix at the end of a set he did recently for Anjunadeep Worldwide (not even slowed down or edited):

    Could the traditional artist-client freelance model work for producers and labels?

    That seems excessive, I'd be interested to know the label involved. I'd imagine he was probably talking about a longer-term deal, i.e. to deliver an album or two. I recall reading that Lange received a flat £1,000 fee for remixing 'Happiness Happening' on Ministry of Sound. Jason Nevins also...

    State One - Forever And A Day (Original Mix) (2003)

    This track was based on a BBC1 Ident that was used between programs in 2002-2006: The ident came first, it was part of the "Rhythm and Movement" series that all used the same melody in different styles of music. It was only a matter of time before someone (Mike Koglin and Gez Dewar)...

    OUT Billy Hendrix - Body Shine (Will Rees Remix) [Armada Captivating]

    I mean Three N One produced the original, so that's why you get those vibes.

    (Why) are there no new ideas in trance?

    Electroclash was a pop genre that came and peaked before some trance producers started moving in that direction. Goldfrapp, Fischerspooner, Tiga, Miss Kittin, even the likes of Scissor Sisters could be counted under that umbrella. https://www.discogs.com/style/electroclash
