Production and details super HQ as usual, joy for the ears. Atmospheres ands sounds used also very nice. Feels like some of the elements need to come forward more though, like it's almost too subtle. Nothing grabs me, but I also enjoy it for what it is. Need to hear full track maybe and not just a small sample. Artwork is sweet as well!

This guy is quality. I like the simplistic approach in his productions. Midnight was one of the best tracks released this year and these are fine as well. Repercussion sounds very promising.

Will have to wait these to be released for a while though.

Liking both! As mentioned very simple approach, but it works really well. Repercussion is my pick of the two so far.

Amazing works from Rob, as always.

I loved both previews, Outlander gives me the same feeling "Albion - Air" does, especially at 2:46.

Repercussion is the one I liked even a bit more, also noticed the sample which really reminds me of "Super8 - Alba" at 1:03, but the buildup just "uplifted" me so good from 2:30 I instantly fell in love with this tune!

Hope it will be released digitally one day.

So is this a new label from Activa? Activa Music?

Cool, will be good to see who he chooses to release on it, hopefully some lesser known talent amongst familiars (like Dopping, Steele, Bostock etc). Really do love the artwork he's made for it.

Gave this a few listens over the past couple of days, whilst both tracks lack a memorable melody/riff, i'm really digging the overall aesthetics of the production. Punchy, atmospheric and polished - sounds like tracks from the older progressive era but faster.

Both are amazing, but I gotta say that Repercussion is my favorite of the two.

Pre-Order on Bandcamp:

Digital: 20th December 2020 // Vinyl: 1st February 2021

Tri-Series is a new album project, spread across 3 separately released, 2-3 track EP's.

All EP's will be standalone, but will come together with the release of Part Three, where a limited edition album sleeve will be made available (at no extra cost), to hold all 3 EP's.
Each will feature a specific, full colour, artwork sleeve printed on reverse stock to give it a fantastic matt finish, as well as a ltd, signed flyer print of the artwork.

Limited run of 270 heavyweight (140g) vinyl of EP1 of the Tri-Series.

Part One features the tracks 'Outlander' and 'Repercussion'; two brand new melodic trancers that take on slightly separate forms. 'Outlander' is a building, progressive track with a stunning opening two minutes; perfect for opening a set, or early on to build that progression.
'Repercussion' is a faster affair with driving basslines and soaring pads. Both tracks have been especially made to sound great on vinyl and are full on nostalgia of the trance from the late 90's and early 00's.

These two are good. Less is more approach is always favorable. Very digital sound.
