Yeah it might turn out to be forgettable, and certainly can be improved in a couple of ways, but I kinda like this one!

Not the most original Activa track, but I am a sucker for his clean sound, and I actually enjoy the baseline and mids quite a lot in this one

Great mastering and top-notch production, but the design and concept are somewhat lacking as with a lot of Activa tracks. Still alright.

Good but hoping for a little more. The track doesn't have much emotion.

Liking the sound of this. Style wise this is right up my alley - dreamy, well produced trance.

Melody is pretty good but i do feel it lacks that extra bit of quality to take it to the next level, especially during the climax. An extra melodic element / acid line would have done the trick i feel.

Nice style, the idea needs more to it. Is this from the new album?
Nobody knows for sure since initially the album was supposed to be the Tri-Series more or less, but it seems that is an hommage LP. Now it appears he's working in parallel on a full-fledged album. Either way, he's been producing a lot of tracks over the past 12-18 months, they need to show up somewhere! :)

I've been relistening to the preview quite a few times over the past days. It's a grower, and I think it would fit great as a buildup song in a set, but as a standalone piece it's not that impressive. Loving more and more the base and mids though, and those subtle acids are really nice.
