Tech-trance with rapping works so well. I'm surprised this hasn't been done much before. With more gritty-ness and a darker ambiance this could be great.

I mean, the lyrics for this track are dumb. If you got a good rapper (or at least someone who knows how to rhyme better than "day") and upper the dark ambiance of the track you could have something good.

Lyrics and singing are made by John it seems, so what did we expect?

The problem with this stuff is that it feels too gimmicky. Trance's roots are in flow and journey and even Tech bangers can somewhat abide by this, and have done successfully in the past. If I heard this on the dancefloor I would completely get taken out of the moment with the un-musicality of it all, let alone the stupidity of the lyrics.

The banging music part is actually pretty good but the rest has no maturity, which the scene is crying out for. Leave the gimmicky stuff to the modern Psy-Trance producers I think. They have the impetus to twist/mess gimmicks like this in a psychedelic way, which at least rings somewhat true to it's roots (just).

When the vocal sample started at "this is what I wanna do" I immediately thought of this track, from 4:15 😅

raves in the dark

Remove the conversation sample (what the heck is that doing? I'd be thrown off, too. I'd think the DJ is having a conversation but forgot to turn the mic off or something).
Crank that darkness up
Get an actual GOOD MC, not John Askew himself (lmao)
Write some badass fire lyrics
???
Great dancefloor banger

This is hilarious! Love it! 😁

Also noticed the label change, thought this would have fitted Victims Helpline perfectly tbh 😮

Yeah he was planning to release this to Victims Helpline and he even mentioned that to a previous VII radio show that he made this especially for that label..... now he changed his mind and will release it on VII...
Maybe because there was passed some time since he released something on VII.
Anyways that's not important, the first preview sounded promising including some good elements. now looking forwards to hear the final version!

When lock down started John Askew went through his phone to collate all the ideas he written in his notes, recorded, filmed, or collected over the last few years on tour. Notes, audio clips or videos he'd taken on planes, in taxis, back stage at clubs and festivals. He created a folder full of all this amazing content - videos, audio files, answerphone and WhatsApp messages - and what he found was an absolute gold mine of highly entertaining clips that offered an insight into the madness of "life on the road". The logical step from there was obviously to put a selection of these highlights together into a record. Sean Tyas loosing his mind leaving the "I'm stuck outside, let me in" message on John's phone. A furious Simon Patterson leaving a very angry message about John leaving ASOT before Simon's set. The madness of the car journey back from Dreamstate So Cal. Matt - Legit - Grimalda telling stories of his illustrious dating career in LA. It's all in there… along with John's own debut as a vocalist!

"oh yeeeeeah"

I love it, it's pretty badass. The unique concept is really cool, too.
