Well, this will take another listen or two to get used to it. It's... different!

"The aptly titled S3000 (named in honour of the legendary Akai Sampler which revolutionised electronic music production in the nineties) marks a revisitation of sample-driven Trance."

Yeah it's a bit weird, but that's good, encouraging almost. Good to see big names doing something different.

This is pretty cool. As you people have said nice to have something a bit different. Keep it up!

It has elements I like and other that I find annoying (that drilling sound).
Overall positive, something different from him

I like the tribal feel in it, but overall the track does not convince me.

Like the new, I mean old new sound... Conflicted would be the right word for me. Can't decide yet

This is very good, very old fashioned sounding. There's no white noise, it's very cleanly produced and has lots of simple melodies. The acid sounds are a welcome inclusion too. You don't hear many productions like this at the moment.

But the kick is still the famous steroid kick....sigh.

The tune is a bit weird. Thats the least I can say, haha. The counter-melody sounds like its taken from a pinball machine or from an cheesy 80s action tv series.

Well, atleast its different :p

I'm pretty sure this sounds "weird" because the man used the sampler to make the track... Very good intentions on this one, I like how Rich still cares about the yesteryears :) Quirky but interesting track.
