If it wasn't for the Tri-Series, I wouldn't have been excited. But I'm actually looking forward to hearing this.

Yeah same here - his last few tracks have been impressive and have had that thing that his previous productions didnt have. I dont really care for modern vocal Trance tracks though,most are pretty bad.

Great great news, especially when I read the intent of the album and scope of musical themes. OTAB remains my favorite album of all time in part because it explores how to incorporate trance sounds in other genres: breaks, chillout, etc. If the level of quality is anywhere near Tri-Series, then I'm convinced it'll be album of the year for me. Hopefully a vinyl is also planned

ID's are amazing, especially the first one, which has the Xpander vibes.

I believe Orkidea & Activa - Z21 (Activa’s ‘Origins’ Remix) would also be a part of the album.
Maybe it will be on the album as a second disc, but I don't know if the album will be released as one disc. By the way, Rob could release a two-disc album. The first is his solo pieces with collabs. The second is remixes of classics that will either be released as a single or not.

So Rob just confirmed to me that Z21 Remix will be a part of the album :)

That's awesome as I prefer it over the psychedelic original creation!

So it is confirmed that it can be a two-disc album :) A couple of Reworks were played at Rob's Luminosity At The Beach. They'll probably be on the album.

That first ID is amazing! The synths would fit perfectly in an early 2000s rave track that you would hear in an Oakie set. And that bouncy baseline with an asymmetrical pattern is something we have not heard in modern trance for quite some time, even though it was all so common in prog trance 15-20 years ago. Great to see Rob giving us variety in the tracks that will be featured on the album.

I for one prefer the original mix of Z21 purely because the psychedelic sound he created in those few tracks was unique. Kinda wished there is a similar track on the release, but chances of that happening are quite small I would imagine.

The only album i'm looking forward to this year. So far the samples have been good.
