Textbook example of the square-synth tech-trance that dominated the genre during the late 2000s. It still sounds clean, fresh, and futuristic today.

Like all Jochen Miller tracks in those years, this one was produced by Benno de Goeij.

A great modern classic. One of the first "hits" with the square-tech-sound, like you described it. Some others joined in and created tracks with this sound too. I wouldn't say it dominated the genre though. There were more things around then. Like the minimaliastic stuff from Arnej, and the start of the "epic" Blueman / Soundlift-esque tracks.

But yeah, it was a popular sound for sure. And a good one imo :)

I remember playing this a lot when it was released. Not really a Trance sound I am really coming back to though or craving today but was good for the time.

This sound dominated from around 2008-2010. I remember Armin and Benno using that sound for a few of their Gaia tracks back in the day as well. I honestly wouldn't mind it returning.
