Hutan is cool, around 8/10 from me
Ovnimoon is not my style, but i will check that out.
Enigma State, both tracks, has the essence, has the authentic sound of the 2000ish period. But the main melody in both tracks doesnt do anything to me, if these tracks come in 2002, they would have been forgotten very soon. But now, its considered as a little gem and I understand. Still not a better rating than 7/10 from me
I would also take a look at Artifact303's work, especially the first 3 tracks on his album.
Ovnimoon and Artifact303 get a lot of things right. Their tracks are dynamic and engaging, and there are few filler sections without purpose. Their sound design is generally coherent, and you can still identify their unique styles. They have a certain "drive" to them that you don't hear elsewhere. This is a big contrast to most 138-140 BPM modern trance. In the latter, lost of producers want to make the biggest melodies and sound like everyone else. Ovnimoon and Artifact303 stare at those constraints and tear them down, making way for genuinely good artistry.

Better than he's done in a long time, still well below standards of old.

First time in a very long while that I actually liked an Armin track to be honest. Agreeing with most of the other members here, it's far from perfect but definitely better than his usual stuff. Nicely done by both artists.
