You're Rigson? Don't know if you saw but one of your tunes made the trancefix top 100 (28th) of 2022, and well deserved! Loving the fresh take on more melodic revival trance coming from guys like you, Willem, & Cybernet. Many thanks for the freebie too!

Didn't know you started a label! Really digging the Celestial Patterns EP as well, gonna cop that.

Hey mate, yes, it's me.

Thanks for the kind words. Really happy you enjoy it because I love making it.

Be sure to check the not even noticed track on the record as well. A real prog beauty.

Nice track, like how spacious everything is and quite a whimsical feeling to it. That Not Even Noticed track is sweet too.

I like the feeling/vibes in it, theres just something about the arrangement and sound choices for me that makes it less credible than what its trying to emulate. Dont like sloppy clap for example, the bassline/kick combo is kinda boring and not the best fit for this imo and that stuttering vox feels like ive heard in alot of nu-trance. Small things here and there (especially drum choices/sounds). Its hard to exactly pinpoint what. I think the old guys just nailed the drums/arrangement/sound design better. It all came together beutifully both sonically and musically. The nu-school-old-school trance almost always have 2-3 things that bother me that takes it down 2-3 steps for what they try to emulate.

Just listen to this. Nothing is out-of-place in this. Everything just has it purpose. All the drums fit like a glove.

Thanks for the feedback. I am just entering my third year of production and still have much to work on. I hear what you're saying about the clap now.

I'll keep trying!

Welcome! good to see you here, 'Digital Tears (Trance Mix)' was really a nice track from yours.)

maybe the 'Uf0' track will be my favourite from the EP, we'll see!

Good one Rigson. You Ask I Tell was a bit edgier but this is alright.

The Not Even Noticed track is the best from the release.

I actually like all tracks here, can't really pinpoint my favourite.
