Sounds better than your remix of Stoneface & Terminal but it needs some work but I do like those melodic synths during the breakdown and the intro doesn't sound right.

BUt it does a million times better than anything Armin or all of other sellout producers and djs play on their show. The intro requires some work though but good effort.

What 90's equipment do you use? Do you use a old computer as well? I would love to make productions using old studio setups I hate the modern look where it's all neat, tidy, trimmed down, lean and structured and all perfect kinda kills the creativity out of it IMO

I have the best of both. Modern and old.
Cubase 12, but can also go right back to Cubase VST32.....and even further back with Cubase 2.0 on the Atari.

Authentic old skool synths and an old 90s Akai sampler and an analog mixing desk.
It's hard work and so much easier just producing in the box.

Sounds good. First one sounds like a Signum/Transa hybrid.

State of Mind sounds maybe a bit more to my taste! Reminds me of these semi-dark melodic trancers from 2000 (not 1999).

Finally announced, Sacred Art is part of EP number 2 with 'State of Mind'

The pre-order for the vinyl will be live very shortly!

@Hensmon might be worth changing the title of this post to cover both tracks 🙂

Sounding both great - like the melody on the first track more,but also lke the gated choir on the 2nd track. Very Transa sounding...its ironic cos iave been waiting for Transa to make more new tracks for years,and youre doing it instead haha.

Its not EDM enough for them 😂
I have also asked Steve Helstrip, ricky simmonds and Solarstone as well and Daniel kandi as well. Posted on Armin's discord too. Hearing those vinyl sounds with those pads is very nostalgic

Both sound great, but I like the first one a bit more. The energy it has is more up my street.
Thats good! :) On the last vinyl there was a hard split between which one was prefered and I think that is what will happen this time. Both tracks have a totally different feel to them.
