Out July 14th.

Don't know why, but I kinda like this one. I will be honest about saying that it basically sounds like a Cold Blue remix of EnMass - CQ (Seek You), but it's not too bad nonetheless.

First track I have liked from Sneijder similar chord progression to André Visior & Kay Stone - Sunrise

its "better" because its not a typical generic synth- preset modern trance number, but ddaaaman the drums are sooooo flat and boring, no tension, no energy, no momentum, no creativity. just a generic random kick/snare/hat combo.

sounds like a slight ripoff from xpander + CQ chords though.

Sneijder on Pure surprised me, but I can see why after listening.

Positive surprise, it is indeed not the cliche steroids, but pretty decent modern trance. This is the way to go.

The synth is taken from old school Bronzwaer and he also uses some Solarcoaster samples. Overall, the vibe is really nice and the kick in particular really stands out for me, reminds of VANDIT/Activa circa 2005.

Just heard this while (finally) listening to PTR369, wasn't expecting it to stand out as something I'd enjoy but was pleasantly surprised :)

The first release from him in quite a long time that I like, definitely prefer this to the typical steriod crap.

Yeh agreed, though it sounds particularly bad in the first link posted here where it's pitched down 4 bpm or so. I'm a sucker for Xpander ripoffs so I'll take the melody, haha. Also reminds me of Lostly's Why? bootleg for some reason.

Gave it a go. Much better than the typical Trancer in this style, decent modern one. Synth sounds nice. I still feel like there is a flowing rhythmn that is often missing from these modern tracks.
