Bought the EP for above the 'sticker price' as it were, on Bandcamp. I know you can pay more, but as far as I'm concerned the 'default' pricing is downright criminal given the amount of work that's gone into both tracks.

Never thought I'd hear this particular sound again, and certainly not done so well. Hats off to everybody involved.

Of the two, In My Fantasy is my favorite. The intro for Enigmatic is my favorite bit of the B side, and the melody is certainly reminiscent of Dutch Force's Deadline, as somebody said a few pages back. Ain't a bad thing, though.
Thank you so much :) I umm'd and ahhh'd over the pricing a lot. I noticed a lot of other artists set a higher value on one track or be cheaper to buy it all. I didnt really want to do that as I felt its should just be a simple straight and fair value £1 per track either bought together or as individual, and the option to put more forward is there but of course no obligation :)


Really pleased you enjoyed both tracks! :)

Purchased as well!!! Fantastic job! Keep up the great work and keep using bandcamp ^^
Thanks :) Yes Bandcamp is WAAAAAAAAYY better than using a label and fighting it out with everyone on Beatport.
The overall sales so far will have contributed to this being at No.1 on Beatport easy.
I love that Bandcamp has a more direct 1 to 1 feel with the listeners though :)

Glad you like the music!

Listening to these in full now as I'm setting up my MasterCard on eBanking.

In My Fantasy is so good, it's just awesome to listen to it. The sounds are ALL there, the arrangement too. It truly does feel like an unadulterated '99 banger. Truth be told, I'm always expecting a twist, something more, something less expected, but ultimately love how it does everything right, even if straightforwardly so. Even love how you twist those filters after the end of the 2nd climax. A simple thing, really, but makes it much more awesome. The entire outro is phenomenal, actually. You could've easily gone for a DJ-friendly outro, but fuck 'em!

Enigmatic...well, I might even like it more. In fact, I do. It feels like a much more serious tune, something we would hear from ASOT (the label) in its early years. Fuck me, near 12 minutes got by so fast! It can stand proudly shoulder-to-shoulder with the best from the era which it feels a part of.

You've managed to show just how this type of style and sound is missed, and just what the reaction to this from the listeners is. And I mean that about TC as much as about ES. I really do hope this becomes as successful as possible and producers realize how much better this is from most of the stuff out there. And what the recipe is for standing out - making good music.
Wow, thanks for the detailed comments :)
Yes, i completely agree about the Outro too. I dont care for making things catered to being DJ friendly, if it works then it works. A good DJ will make it work regardless. I want to make the music I love and that the listeners will love too. Thats the fundamentals of why I wanted to do this project. Not for labels, not for beatport chart positions which is why its remained as a self release with no label intervention from day 1.

In My Fantasy is quite a barebones track over all. Theres not many elements to it but thats how it was done back in the day.

I love how it has people split. People love the A side but then do a complete flip after hearing the B-side, but then love the A-side.
12 minutes and it doesnt even feel like its 12 minutes.

Thanks for your comments. Theyre really appreciated :)

The tracks are awesome, especially Enigmatic. The melody is just really beautiful. The intro and outro melody deserves another 2 pounds from me)))
Thank you! Really glad you like the intro and outro. It really does take you on a journey through out :)

Fits in perfectly mate and loved the melody of Netherworld mixing in with the intro section. Great mix, and thanks for supporting!
You are so welcome. Thank you all and @EnigmaState for making such incredible music. First of many EPs I hope!

Yeah, when I put the mix together before recording I envisioned Netherworld into IMF and worked perfectly. Thanks for listening to the mix :D

A good thing you can do on Bandcamp,is once youve built a collection of tracks up on it,you can sell the whole discography for a discounted price...so for example im selling mine for £15,which is really good value for money to say you get all the tracks in high quality WAV format...and the more releases i add,the better a deal that becomes hehe.

@EnigmaState I bought the ep as I said above, on Desktop I use iTunes/Music but I rarely open Bandcamp app on my phone tbh since I play my Deezer playlists when I am running or driving so I won't have to hold my phone and go back and forth to choose what to listen. So pls, add both tracks to Deeze too :D

That's massively convenient (since I use it as well)! But I will purchase the WAVs too from Bandcamp.

Took a listen to these again on my walk yesterday. So, so good. Tried to A/B test Enigmatic with some of 03-05's finest and it fits in perfectly.

Btw, will your remix for Transa be released ever?
Im honestly not sure. Its in the hands of Transa now. Ive signed the rights over to the track now so its completely out of my hands now. They could choose not to use it - hopefully not the case though :)

Finally got around to listening these tracks. I prefer Enigmatic. In My Fantasy's breakdown feels a bit too long and i expected it to go full force after that but that didn't happen. Not that it's a bad track btw and now i know it's not going full on i can appreciate that too.
Both will be purchased soon.
