Love this one (though the version I found is not +10min like advertised!)


Jon Coles (aka Deepcry) has been producing in various forms for over 20 years, with releases on Bonzai and Morphosis from 2010 onwards, until 2016 where family life took over and music had to take a back seat, until now. Jon's sound is rooted in prototypal progressive trance, always melodic, atmospheric and dancefloor ready.

The +10-minute 125 bpm 'Alpha' explores the soundscape of Deep Trance with a gritty, earthy, heads-down groove & a serious, poignant, dystopian atmosphere.

Very rhythmically sterile/one-sided to me. There's no tension or effective build. It just adds elements on top of the same half-slow tedious beat up until the end.

Boring 4/10

I like the melodic elements but the typical Deep trance percussions/bass is so boring and sterile.

Good to see his name back, and the melodic parts I like, but the PURE Trance prog can be really sterile/flat for me

It took some effort to get him back into it but now he's smashing out loads of ideas. I pushed him to demo this to Rich at PT so I'm really happy it got picked up as it was a big boost for Jon's morale. 'Delta' was signed at the same time, so look out for that one in a bit.
Also - check your PM's I've finished up the ambient mix and sent you the DL link a few weeks ago - message get to you? It looks like it did, but weird things have happened before on PM's...
