Playful, effective club music, 'Q3projz' and 'VT Trad' are my picks, both: 7.5/10

'VT Trad' uses voice sample from 'Justine - Want Me Love Me' from 1994

Mmmm, sounds almost like early 2000s "psy"-prog with more "housey" basslines, but a bit more "empty".. its ok i guess, but I dont find it too interesting. Its not novel nor retro-nostalgic, it just falls in the middle.

Meh its fine, kicks well and everything, but not interesting or memorable. They just make this music to slap hard in soundcloud mixes? It's all beggingin to sound the same one way or another. Ok Im being overly critical, it is good in sets. VT Trad the one I like the most.

ouhhh.. do you really think that the label invested alot of money in the vinyl format only for soundcloud plays? or that people buy the record for 15 bucks only for a spin in promo mixes? NO.

this EP is pure dancefloor material

most of my /music/ friends are discogs users, a friend of my buys 500 records from discogs in a year, mostly old releases .. if this record was sold only two times, than that means that old Trance records are not collected at all..

Q3Projz Sounds phat, spacious, and grooving. It's nice but it doesn't go anywhere for me or offer anything interesting when all said and done. Feel like i'm listening to a House track too vs Trance. Same for V-Trad, which does has some nice synths and sample to it, probably best one for me.

Zippercher definitely House. Pretty nice one too.

Barely a Trance record tbh, not sure what discogs playing it ;)

tbh I would not add the release into my 'House' collection)

also this review sees the first two tracks as 'Trance':
Title track 'VT Trad' sees him pepper a squelchy, progressive trance style bassline with psychedelic electronics, glassy-eyed spoken word snippets and intergalactic chords, while 'Q3projz' is a TB-303-sporting tribute to formative German trance tracks from the early '90s.

It does stretch the imagination on what is or isn’t Trance. I hear both house and trance, but nothing progressive.

Yes, but more people have bought The Bongo Song this month. You have to ask yourself how many people that is.
