Heres a closer look at the artwork for anyone interested :)
I was aiming for a similar design to last time and used the AI Midjourney to create the image. I fed in the original artwork from the first vinyl release and then prompted it to generate an image using key words and after a few attempts it gave this.
I love the double sided feel to it where its a little dark one side of the face and lighter and the other.

A digital version will be released but the priority is the vinyl at this stage. :)

Confused on the "pres. by Trance Classics". I know Trance Classics is the producer who makes releases on Amersterdam Trance. I see an Enigma state track in this discogs page. But on the Enigma State page I don't see it listed as a seperate alias. Are you the same artist? I doubt it because one is terrible music and one is amazing.
So then I see Trance Classics is a FB page, so I think it's possible you have signed to this page, which is actually a label? But then why is it "pres." which is exclusively used for alias, and the label on this site is stated as self release. There is no Trance Classics label that matches on discogs.

^ Trance Classics, the YouTube page with hundreds of great uploads, is not the crappy “producer” who released some aweful reworks under the alias Trance Classics.

The guy behind the YouTube page teamed up with Enigma State to get him maximum exposure. First acting like it was an actual old song, but later it was revealed to be a new tune by Enigma State. (In my fantasy / Enigmatic). There is no label involved.

This one is the follow-up.

This one comes up every now and then these past few years due to someone deciding Trance Classics would be a good idea for an artist name lol. Some shady marketing technique so that when you search for the actual classic you're hit with some updated steroid version on Amsterdam Trance I imagine.

This whole 'Trance Classics Presents' project came to life though after I discovered a video of Nath' playing 90's style Trance on Youtube where the riff to 'In My Fantasy' was first heard. We got talking and decided it would be a great idea to join forces and try to bring back the older sounds with the idea of releasing them on vinyl like the good old days too.

Nath' producing authentic sounding retro style Trance, and ourselves Trance Classics with the perfect ready made fanbase across Youtube and other socials to push it all toward.

We're not an official record label (but I guess you could look at us as being like the label here) , and we've not done anything 'by the book' in terms of how a release would usually go. Just two passionate 'stuck in the past' guys trying to get some records made with the sounds they love.

The recent Trancefix interview with Enigma State goes some way to explaining too :)

So far the vinyl campaign is going well with 300 of 500 pre-orders taken up.
Anyone wanting a longer listen to the main drop can hear it here:

any news this yet @DazTC @EnigmaState? Saw the vinyl had gone to press but not heard anything more for a few months :)

He posted this 2 days ago on Facebook:
**VINYL UPDATE**

Just wanted to put out an update on the vinyl.
We got the test pressings, and by mistake the pressing plant done the cut at 33rpm instead of 45rpm.
As a result we (Myself and Trance Classics) have pushed back and asked for it to be done in 45, so this may have an impact on the delivery of the vinyl.

Apologies to all waiting on this, a bit frustrating for us on our side too but we want to ensure everyone gets what they paid for. As soon as I have more details on the delivery I will keep you posted.

Many Thanks

Hi, as the post above, there was some mess up and we rejected the test pressing because they pressed at 33rpm instead of 45rpm.
Bit annoyed about this and hoping its not impacted the delivery of this.

What I can say was the tracks did sound great at 33rpm so fully expect it to sound even better at 45.

Apologies for the slight delay on this but it was the right choice to ensure everyone gets what they paid for. 😊
