Based upon Harold Faltermeyer's Intro-Bakersfield (from the soundtrack of the movie The Running Man) this is British rising star LostLegend at his astonishingly good and mesmerising best! Pounding beats, squelchy acid and crisp hats set the pace, Faltermeyer's dark dystopian piano drops at the break resolving in a mammoth main room pay-off that just keeps on building. Phenomenal.


One of my favorites from PT 10, made by our @LostLegend ✌️ Single comes on February 2nd :)

Trance with bold flavour and characteristics! the key change during the drive really sets things apart with matching/accompanying super engaging bassline grooves. Love that melancholic piano so unique its incredible!

Congratulations @LostLegend on your first Pure trance solo release & asot play for publicity. Hopefully future signings will be under the main imprint but this track fits Neon perfectly 👌 will be buying in highres for sure and storing it in my toty 2024 folder.

Anyone interested in me doing a production/track breakdown video for this?

For those interested.

Grown on me since I first heard it on PT 10. The baseline and percs really are great, and everything sounds quite nice. The dark melancholic theme you've gone for isn't exactly my taste but its cool you tried something a little less non-standard than whats typical. Would have preferred the piano to have a simpler melody. Congrats on all the recognition it's getting.

Nice one here! The buildup reminds me of Miikka Leinonen - Far From West a little :)

Also seen that the track is under the main Pure Trance label instead of Pure Trance NEON on Beatport xD

That also seems to have happened with the next NEON release to go on pre-order (Wavetraxx - Million Miles To Go). Odd.

Well, the tune switches between key-scales quite harshly to create drama and tension. It works well. It’s sort of awkward, but that’s the whole point of it. To make you feel a little odd.

It can be fun to experiment with out-of-key-scale notes. If you overdo it, you will perceive them as “false note” indeed. If you do it subtle, it can create tension.

Class work, lovely bit of trance-offtopicness (musically) that works extremely well imo.
