One of the most prolific artists on our rosta in terms of his commitment and releases on our labels. The man who has had millions of streams over the years and is loved all over the Trance world.

We are super excited to bring in our 500th release (can you believe it) with the debut artist album from none other than Miikka Leinonen. A producer who has become a firm friend of the label and it seemed only perfect to have his debut album to mark this huge milestone.

Here you will find 13 tracks and a journey like no other, including some of his greatest hits!

Hope you like it! Its a mix between progressive and uplifting, old school sounds used, no boring vocals or collabs. Might be more progressive than uplifting there.

Name comes from the meme ”born too late to explore the world born too early to explore the universe”. Born just in time to explore trance. Been producing 20 years and you can hear some old school sounds and vibes -even some techniques used past years- also here and there. Album is journey from prog to uplifting with some techno flirting (And Ever, wait for the drop). Enjoy!

Singularity had some promise just wish it had more raw sounds. Congrats on the release.

Singularity is awesome and really fits the album cover! This also sounds very uplifting despite the low BPM. Some other nice tracks on the album as well, Wild Hunt is probably my favorite one besides Singularity.

Thank you! I would call Singularity a proglifting track. Progressive with uplifting sounds and feel. Ive made various before, like exodus trilogy with juraj as driftmoon.

Singularity sounding really good. Not usually a style I find much enjoyment in in recent times but this for whatever reason hits the spot!

Prog House and techno on same track? On a trance album? Why the fuck not! Its not a label album. Its a real artist album. A Dj set I would play Live. Alter Ego gave me full artistic and creative freedom. Followed few (excellent) tips I got from them ofc. But still, its what I wanted to make.

Here is: AND EVER

More proglifting, a track with a mystic feel to it. Beyond The Aquila Rift. You watched the episode? :D

I rarely go for albums, but this one is worth it for sure. Amazing work.

I see Singularity is very liked, but for me the song that stands out is Gears.

Thank you guys for your awesome and kind feedback 😍 Its a bit different than other Trance albums. I think Its also a good sign that every people seem to have a different favourite track.

I worked my ass off for it for 14 moths handcrafting every single detail to polish it (ie surgical equing channels). Still maintaining the original feel and style of the tracks and not over producing anything. All tracks are also started from scratch. I think we left 3-4 full finished tracks out of the album just to get the best Album possible.

Next track we start rocking more.
