Perry O’Neil is an alias of Dutch DJ and producer Perry van de Vrede. In the year 2004 he released a lot of tracks under this name on the legendary progressive house and trance label "Electronic Elements". During the years Perry made tracks such as “Cold Fusion”, “Kubik”, “Myst”, “Switched” and of course “Wave Force”. And that’s the one we’re gonna talk about in this week’s vlog. You will hear how the name "Perry O'Neil" was born, more about the collab he did with M.I.K.E. (which never got released), the "Electronic Elements" label, Perry's techno projects and of course his future plans!

Most unreleased tracks are actually somewhere on YouTube so that's a pity...
I actually don't think most unreleased tracks are somewhere on YouTube to be honest.... Only the ones that were actually played in a live set / radio show yes for sure, but the tracks that were never signed / played in a set (like this one) aren't anywhere online mostly. As Perry said in the interview, they both agreed this wasn't good enough to release, so it wasn't signed to a label and because they both thought it wasn't good enough, it has (as far as I know) never been played in a set / radio show either.

I forgot to add something important.

Most unreleased tracks that we the listeners know of :)
Artists generally don't speak or mention tracks that never have been played anywhere. They rarely do.
When I see people talking about unreleased tracks, it's normally these, which have not been sold, but are up to listen online.
Typically we listeners don't know about the tracks, that have never seen the public life.

As a amateur/semi pro producer myself, I of course have a lot of projects that have never been released.
