No worries mate, you know doing this just for the sake of listening to good trance and chasing it as much as I can.

Funabashi, Kamil Polner, Samuelzone, Mike Shiver's Catching Sun, Monogato, Terk Dawn, Kaveh Azizi, George Hales, Sonicvibe (for me, his release one of our most underrated releases) I tracked all of them on social media and the internet and tried to convince them to produce "one more" for the fans. Failed on bringing back Hydroid and Envio, Carl B, and Kimito Lopez. I got a small demo from Hydroid and it has great potential though. There was a chance to have a new Sebastian Brandt track then I learned he was already active in the scene with his ghost producing :) I thought he left music like others.

Terk Dawn succeeded to bring Vascotia back, I did not ask how but looks like they are really tight friends with Six Senses too.
I would kill for Hydroid - Space Quest!! Still unreleased! :cry:

Ooooh appreciate the effort. Why did he choose not to come back?

If you take a look at his socials you will see he focuses on way different stuff than music. It looked like he was fed off of trance music. The good news, he did not leave music producing totally. Not everybody knows but in 2019 he collaborated with Bolier under NVO alias which means in the future he can change his mind and bring the real Envio back. Most likely via a major label like Armada though.
That is disappointing to hear both Hydroid, lopez Carl b and Envio are not coming back. It might be due to spending time with their families. Can you try to get MK-S back?

I feel like the impossible one here is Kimito Lopez. Hydroid never left music producing, just stopped producing progressive trance. Carl B posts about trance on Facebook from time to time but Mr. Lopez is totally disappeared. I can always try mate.

There is an issue with convincing veteran names to produce trance again though. These guys haven't produced a single track in more than 10 years and I do not expect them to create something like they did in their best form. It should be consistent so they can start to find their rhythm again. (a good example would be Jonas Steur) Most of these guys (example: Monogato) sold their hardware equipment and it affects the comeback results a lot. Having them back is good but they usually do not have a long term plan and when you ask them the reason for leaving the scene in the first place the answer is always the same :)

Wow this also mind blowing uplifting. Is this off a compilation, I feel like I remember it.

As @Progrez mentioned, I heard Soncvibe's track on ASOT and one of the old Crystalclouds set (cannot remember whose) and reached him via Skype 7-8 years ago. At that time he had already left the progressive scene and started producing tech-house and techno. He added another track on the package and let us release it. I love this track.

Ofcourse, got a original mix in progress now. I am forever dedicated to trance, i can promise you that. I have plenty of unreleased material but they are all half-done.

I feel most of the producers who left may have forgotten or lost practice on how to make good tracks hence why the scene is struggling with good releases. I would love to hear more tracks like that Allegoria track by Sonicvibe especially that breakdown which is so rare to hear such a good breakdown these days. That and Kamil Polner's Sonata are both excellent tracks which is how most listeners want to hear tracks, tracks that take you on a journey not some random electro drop here and there with some random lazy produced non melodic breakdown which doesn't go anywhere. (I am not saying your track does this) Your remix stands out from this EP.

We would love to hear something like this if you are going for the darker sound.

I really like all versions, but yeah...Vascotia shows that sometimes less is more, his approach stands out :)

Sooo sweet. It just hits the spot!!! That phased melody with the detuned synth theme + pad is what does it. It has the looking-out-the-window sentimental vibe to it that has been lost in trance. The vascotia mix

I might have wanted something more in terms of build, or even in the outro. Feels a little thin in the arrangement.

The six senses mix kinda looses its "dreamlifting" vibe because of the boomy sub-bass imo. Its just ok to me.

stop caring if youre tune gets played on asot btw

Brilliant release. We need more labels like Blue Soho that brings us quality Trance to enjoy.

There really are no words for the Vascotia remix. Such an amazing tune and brings back the feeling of good old sounds. Love the original as well.

Just realized I haven't really commented on the release. It's definitely a solid one...however...

Vascotia remix misses just that special something in the climax. It's not even an issue of cleanliness, it just sounds a bit empty. I know it's late to do anything about that now, but maybe something to keep in mind for the future (if you want to, of course). The vibe is great, no doubt about that.

Can't really fault the original for anything to be honest. A nice-enough typical circa 2010 soft uplifter. It's nice enough. The Six Senses remix is pretty alright too, however I prefer the other two mixes.
