One of my recent "modern trance" discoveries.
I had heard of this track but otherwise slept on it. When I heard it in a mix I legit thought it was from Push/M.I.K.E. Let's just say I was pleasantly surprised to see that it's "7 Instead of 8" from Rank 1. It quickly became one of my 2012 favorites!

One of my all-time Rank 1 favourites. Excellent track, still listen to it from time to time.

I really dont like this at all. Its so stabby and slow. the whole tune sounds totally OFF for me.

And those over-prounonced clap are so annoying.

This aint no classic! ;)

It's a product of its time. 2012 is not too far off from the Deadmau5 progressive house influence :p
Yeah, there's something cacophonous about the track. I like it and enjoy the rhythm, but I can see why it would feel off.
