A remix that will be a part of Pure Trance 10 (also on vinyl edition) and later should be released separately on Pure Trance label :)

Well, it’s pretty much the original in a 138-uplift sauce. Glad it wasn’t a complete rape though. It’s therefor acceptable.

Have not seen his name is ages. I know many don’t like his style but I have always enjoyed it and this one is no different.

I'm glad to see Photographer still active in the scene. Even though I'm already saturated and tired of this style, I can't deny that he was a significant part of me enjoying some of it before, when it still had something to offer. I still go back to some of his tracks like 'Northern Glacier,' 'Airport,' and 'Night Lights.' At least he continues to infuse his tracks with the same energy and atmosphere that sets them apart a bit from the rest. All that said I enjoyed this remix.

Photographer maybe the king of steroid trance (but well done?), your thoughts on Mr Photographer work @Daysleeper
its steroid trance.

tbh im really not familar with his stuff except for Airport...he feels more of a b or c tier steroid trance producer...

Hes not in the same leauge as Tyas,Darren Porter etc...

Darren Porter - The Oracle or Tyas - Reach Out, top tier steroid trance :p masterful productions. More gainz than optimus prime himself...

As a big fan of Photographer before he entered in retirement *cough* or was that his ghost producer period for F.G. Noise *cough* I'm happy to finally see him properly back. Does it stack up to his bombastic wall of sound one would know from Airport, Snow Leopard, or Kervansaray? Of course not, but the man has to dust off the rust first. I heard enough small elements in the track to know this was a Dima production without looking at the track name, which is more than you can say for most records. Cautiously optimistic of better future releases.

The original is a decent gentle trancer. The Pure Retouch probably is the best version that captures the dreamy essence of the ideas. Somewhat surprised Solarstone brought in Photographer to do the remix. I don't think it needed a banging version with a rehash of almost the same ideas. Very mediocre.

To clear up the confusion here.
Yuri Sena is the man responsible for producing the Photographer project. It is true that Dmitry Chumak announced that he is quitting, but this should not affect the production but only the live performance. Dmitry was only the face of the project, but he didn't interfere with the production as far as I know.
Dmitry, however is still credited on discogs, which might be just a mistake.

FG Noise, former known as John Sunlight is just a fan of the sound. He uses their old template on which their created Airport and stuff. His tracks are always the same, he only changes the melody, since he has a limited sound bank probably. Now we haven't heard from him in a while and I don't think he has anything to do with the Photographer project (ghost-wise).

As for the track, its quite nice, but as already been said, there is better version, the Pure Retouch version.
