Rob Stevenson (Activa) messaged me a few days ago about his upcoming compilation on Blackhole recordings and is looking for forum producers to submit tracks for consideration. In his own words:

"I’m currently working on a compilation for Black Hole which will be out next year, around April time. It’s a full on passion project which thankfully Arny at BH has got completely behind and we will be doing a 2xCD and 2xLP, 8 track sampler.

I appreciate the support I have had from TF and would like to see if there are any producers that would like to submit any music for consideration?
I think the tastes of the board generally line up with a lot of my own and I think it could be a good source of music for the comp."


He said he would love to see work like "Natious, Christian West, Silk, Origin - proper prog trance 132 - 135 ish groovy trance". I'm sure anything close to Borderline style will go down well too.

Rob already approached me with this a couple months back. great to see him mining other musical sources other then "the usual" and Black Hole giving full artistic control over to him

never, ever give up m8. As a remixing artist of one of your tracks its been a pleasure seeing you develop musically this year.

Oh, no way I get 10 rejections per month on label radar, but that just motivates me more to keep pushing, learn more, develop and eventually start releasing.

I really feel like kicking myself for backing down from the only label offer on label radar, but anyways time marches only forward.

This year I stepped down the pedal from producing a bit, but for the first time I feel like a really good dj, I have only one mix this year that I didn't like and it's mostly because 2/3 rough transitions which for most people might not even be that bad.


@LostLegend is sounds pretty finished to me, but definitely finish it... by exporting it? ;)

Thank you for bringing this to attention. A compilation by Activa on blackhole could be quality, he is probably the best man to try and put something together. I'm gonna start the new year with a production and see what he says.

I know I only just rejoined the forum, but I'd love to take this chance! Activa's a really consistent producer and DJ. And I haven't really done anything trance in that BPM range yet. Would really like to know the deadline too.

Perhaps I should get off my arse and finish this one then, finally, only started working on it like a year ago :ROFLMAO:
Might need to bump the BPM up a bit though!
Welp, he liked it, said it was well produced and had some great ideas but not quite what he was looking for, for the compilation.

Looks like I’ll have to tout this particular track elsewhere 🤔
