Been waiting for the release of this since they've played this in March, "Luminosity presents: Stoneface & Terminal exclusive 3 hour live set" as the last track - too bad it wasn't recorded on YouTube, thankfully I've watched it live on twitch.
This track kinda reminds me of L.S.G. early stuff.
Beautiful 12 minute journey, double breakdown, emotional piano - my favourite track of this year so far.
Out 4 days ago on Pure Trance, also on Solarstone's 'EA4' compilation last month.
It's been a quiet year so far, musical output seems to be down from the previous few years and not much new talent has come through in the more high-tempo trance scene. Prog house seems to be continuing its revival, with prog trance dormant as usual.
Still, here are two of my favourites:
Activa - Polestar
Dreamy, mature-sounding trance. Right up my alley.
Jaytech - Dreamworld
A very dancey powerful arena-like track. The twinkly melody during the initial part of the break (which also emerges in the form of a supersaw in the second half of the climax) is magical.
IMO that's strong evidence the genre is running out of ideas.
You need someone who takes influence from other genres, a complete outsider perhaps. Then again if you make trance that sounds too different it won't be released on any reputable label.
