@william byrne do you never find yourself a bit disappointed with Trance productions in the scene nowadays, like some of the edge and creativity has been lost?

Most people here in the forum have a kind of die hard connection with Trance and personally I find it hard to find tracks that capture something the old ones did well, so its a natural to see the expectations and comments here . This Ferry track is good but misses something fundamental. Hmmm, maybe I just got old, but maybe you'd agree with what im getting at? The venting and criticisms are legitimate for us who've been following the scene for decades.

Do you know what,i agree with most of what youre saying - but i still think Ferry is doing a GOOD job of making modern Trance in this day and age where we are drowning in generic and mediocrity...hes had to cut the length down to cater to modern young crowds,but hes still kept a lot of old skool sounds in here - trying to stick to those old skool Gouryella roots. I just feel the main melody just doesnt have that ''epic'' feeling of other Gouryella tracks.

Yeah I do man. I dont listen to them tho and move one to ones I like. Classic trance is more my bag. Especially tunes from the early 2000's. That's when I first started listening. Gatecrasher digital was a big one. I'm only having the laugh with you guys with the other comments by the way haha

Yeh 100% @Magdelayna, Ferry is still going a good job for sure. I really liked Slice of Heaven and Anahera. I feel like im more susceptible to appreciate those tracks though as I kind of forced myself to lower my standards/expectations for modern releases. I still enjoy them, but wouldn't put them in a top 2000 list or something. As you say its much better than everything else, just part of me always hoping for the real deal. The Enigma State track could deliver on that I wonder?

Yeah the Enigma State track is a wonderful throwback.

Even in my cynical mind I am still expecting the appearance of some EDM snare risers to appear 10 seconds after the sample we heard ends

I've noticed that most if not all producers and label owners maintain that the scene is in good shape and take any criticism hard. I suppose it is in their interest to say that because it helps them sell records. I happen to think that the scene is in a fairly good shape, it's just very different from what it used to be.

However I don't see any problems with people calling a spade a spade and exposing lazy and incompetent music. Especially when it's marketed as something wonderful. The scene has been around since the late 80s and you have to evaluate music against what has come before. You can't judge art in isolation without any reference points.

Ferry doesn't really do it for me any more. His tunes have mostly been drifting into the "WTF Nu-Armin" category in this past year or two. Back in the day, I'd hear any of his tunes on the radio or on a CD, and would be left as damp as a Canterbury cellar. These days, I'm a lot older, busier and I don't get moist as easy any more. Plus now there's all the rules, restrictions, laws, ethical guidelines.

Hearing this track in a mix made a few hairs stick up on my legs, and there was a spot of moisture similar to how Paul Oakenfold feels when handed another bottle of tequila during a gig. There's something warm and sexual in there, and I realise how much I needed it, once I'd had it.

It might be because most of the tunes out these days are instantly forgettable. It might not.

Some nice metaphors here !

I just think it's missing a bit of punch. That is all. (I think I said this on the first page).
Otherwise, it's fine, if a bit noisy. No Hoopoe - Hutan, but better than the stuff on WAO138 and FSOE.

Parts are good, some not so good. Melody is not my thing but I want as much as this style from Ferry as possible honestly.
