it looks like the end of the year is so much better than the spring/summer session for 'Trance' releases, here another fine example:
At last, we get doused from the source; four priors of reissued gems and newer beauts now land us at the quintus maximus: the inaugural Spray on Spray. It’s large and in charge, as we pull back the velvety curtain to reaffirm the exquisite curator is just-as-exquisite a melody maker. OT Rails adjusts the prog antenna to broadcast 3 anthems from the great big dance satellite in the sky, including a collaboration with French cuties Baraka. You’ve had your trad, now dance!

The title track struts along its psychedelic catwalk with a sexy house swagger, unlocking a wobbly stack of pineal-tickling melodies en route. The angels soon sing in positiva harmony, before the piano-lude calls for a tight embrace with those closest to you on the dancefloor. Raise those hands aloft, you know what’s coming; that hard house’d snare roll soon erupts and, before you know it, you’re soaring like the white dove you are. Why does it feel so good?

Spray then switches channel to Ceathair, coaxing the prog spirit from the motherland as the psilocybinised breaks wisp through the undergrowth. The vibe is bouncy, as the diva croons and bassline sings, before the vista opens and the sprayed piper summons you home. Open that third eye, súil eile.
Our swan song is reserved for Baraka and Spray, conjoining their tech trance powers on Think Of Me. The trio up the pace for the grand finale, rolling the tight groove from the off while igniting its hybridised trance rump with hypnotic fervour. The friendly mantra floats heavenly above throughout, absorbing you in a semi-lucid ecstatic state. It’s a whirlwind of dancefloor energy from beginning to end, and Spray wouldn’t have it any other way.

Not bad, quite nice overall....a little basic/bare maybe in its build/arrangement but apart from that I like it. (OT rails)

7.3/10

OT rails is a good danceable one, with very punchy feeling and old school synths. Ceathair didnt go anywhere to make me want to listen again.

OT Rails is juicy! First time I heard it was on autoplay on SoundCloud and it really caught my attention given I had no idea what it was. Others are fine tools. Honestly would have expected a little more from the Baraka/Spray collab though, Baraka's got some really interesting ones.

This recent string of hot releases is getting me ready to record a mix again... been about a half year for me.

the EP is OUT digital/vinyl

'OT Rails' is the only track that I like from the pack 7.5/10
'Ceathair' and 'Think of Me' are just ok, nothing more.. 5/10

OT rails is definitely the best. Solid but never something you’d put in a top list at the end of the year. No personality.

I missed out on this last year. Nice relaxing release. Love the oldschool vibe
