He is one of the best producers today, for us few who likes quality trance i really hope he continues.
Regarding this release i dont think its anything special to be honest, i like the sounds but it goes nowhere.
Never been a fan of tracks using the exactly same elements in the buildup and after the breakdown. Some crazy acid lines and an additional melody are needed.

I asked him to produce something like Cylinder, both me and Daniel Lesden are super keen to hear the outcome :)

Sounds really nice and pleasing on the ears. Everything is great in that respect. I enjoyed it but I agree with the above post that it needed some additional melody or thing happening as the current melody isn't interesting enough to carry across the entire track. Trance remix is my pick.

Had forgot about this one, it's so good. Very intense.

Have to agree with most comments. It's too subdued for me. Perhaps that's the angle/ track title eludes to, which then matches well imo. A nice little set opener with the base being my fav part. Perhaps I hold endgame too high as an expectation now.

Had so much potential ,would have been great even there would have been key change after the breakdown, still a nice one!!

Nice bassline, good acid, nice-souding production.

Musically though it falls flat. The arrangements/structure are on a very basic level and its simply not that interesting to listen along. The elements are being added in super predicting way, its too robotic/repetitiv, it stays in the same energy level the whole track, it doesnt take any interesting sidesteps etc .Its especially evident within the kick/bassline/cymbal/clap I think which is meant to drive the track forwards. I dont know if its slow tempo that makes it feel so sluggish/uninteresting or the actual placement of the different drum sounds or the respective rhythms but for me it comes out lifeless and slow/repetitiv/uninteresting. I miss a huge lot of finesse, small things can do so much.

I mean the trancemix fixes the tempo issue a bit, but it still has that same problem for me with the arrangement feeling very robotic and predictible. I always love trance that has alot of interlplaying beetween the rhythms, and when analysing this it does have a bit of that so am asking myself, why dont I enjoy this more? I wish alot of these producers that make this 128-130bpm trance could take a note to this and actuallly listen to their own creations in a more musical way, and less so in a does-it-sound-well-produced-way Because I think it just lacks alot of actual musical credibility. It seems its just a style of trance these days and has been the last 10 or so years, that does make it distinctive, so its much a style over substance issue.
