Activa announced that Borderline label is going to relaunch on early 2022. May be this track will be released under that label. Not sure, but it sounds like old Activa's signature sound and it is very cool indeed.

Sounds pretty solid, but it reminds me of something. Both the stabby lead and the swirling synth aswell.

Agreed. Has to be some prog banger from circa 2000, maybe from Bedrock?

I think you might be meaning "Skin On Skin"?

I definitely hear the classic Oakenfold/Perfecto touch in the ID's breakdown, love it!

Borderline resurrection sounds promising.

It's not just the breakdown, this track is a full throwback to late 90s Perfecto, the sound design screams Oakie from that period. Great piece overall I would say, it's definitely a proglifter type of track which means sadly it will not be get a lot of love because it has no drop ...

Speaking of Borderline coming back, this is the best label news in a long time!! Hopefully this means that we will get new music from Bostock, Sonic Element, Mac & Monday and maybe those rumoured new Datt productions also.

By the way, whoever did that ID (I assume Mac &Monday based on the synth) at 22:50 took the PVD kick from Out There and Back !!! The ID at 51m also sounds like M&M

Maybe one from his resurrected label? With this and Research & Development coming back we might have a good 2022 for this clean style Trance. He's by far been the best producer of the year.

I may sound absurd but the first notes in the breakdown remind me of Scooter - Jigga Jigga

Wait, Dopping is bringing back R&D?! This is news to me :D

Concerning this release, I would not be surprised if this comes out on Activa Music instead of Borderline

Yeah man and some nice releases from this year to already, check out threads with John Dopping & Anthony Yarranton - Amrita (Vrje Staat Remix) and Sebastian Brandt & Peter Steele - Singularity on TF, they're sweet tunes.
