Must say my hopes now got a bit lowered. Are we being decieved here? Is it still just steroid trance in a costume? 😛

Hope sincerely im wrong.
It is an old one from Nathan yes, but there's absolutely no need to be worried. He's stepped completely away from this sort of sound/style nowadays and has gone back to producing the old ways.

There'd be no point in this project at all if it just sounded like the steroid stuff.

If I tell you he's recently bought an Atari ST to use with his productions along with the analog equipment it tells you the level of authenticity he's been trying to reach in recapturing that retro sound, and basically everything he's sent me demo wise etc has sounded awesome with a late 90's/early 00's feel :D

I think the previews speak for themselves really but unfortunately we can't share any more with you at the minute. Having both full length tracks sat here I don't think you'll be disappointed if you enjoyed the clips you've heard so far though.

What is this`?


Is this the same Enigma State? This sounds a bit more like modern typical steroid trance to me, apart from some fx and sounds.
Hi all.

Just want to put the record flat on the table to avoid any uncertainty.
Yes I've produced a couple 'steroid' Trancers and yes I've made trance that bends to "what's normal" in a trance because "that's what labels want"
For anyone wanting to make trance music and release it, its a very confusing and narrow(minded) scene.

I spent a lot of time trying to get tracks 'signed' to digital labels only to be told "it doesn't fit" or "it sounds too old" so in the end I did bend and produced a couple tracks that "fit in" to be signed. By the end of it, it just wasn't for me and not the direction I wanted to go.

I didn't like the direction of Trance with its focus on the Beatport chart and every track sounding the same, with the 'pumped up, hard hitting, festival put your MF hands up' drops!'
Beatport and the 'steroid' Trance just didn't mean anything to me from the get go of my first releases,....and that's where the Classic Trance came in.

I made a personal choice that I didn't want to make Trance to what is seen as the norm and wanted to make trance how I wanted, the way I loved it,.....the Classic Trance way.

With that came a HEAVY studio investment purchasing classic hardware that brought us the Trance we all know and love - bare in mind I'm just a normal family man and I work a standard 9am - 5pm job as a Data Analyst and the music is somewhat a hobby.
Some time later, by chance I posted a video (kind of bent the rules) to the Trance Classics group of what was an early stage of In My Fantasy and from there it exploded.

For me it was a kind a relief that finally there was someone/a group of people who actually liked what I did and it was refreshing for noone to say "it doesn't fit".
And that's where the project started between myself and the Trance Classics channel.

The last track Into The Nova was signed in mid 2019 and it was released many months later in early 2020 - In fact, 'The Jinx Brothers' remix of that release is also produced by me which I hope shows I'm not a one trick pony. I'm quite partial to other genres.

What I will say is that Darren of Trance Classics would not pursue this if it was all just a farse and ends up becoming steroid Trance.

The latest update is the A side and B side is finalised, 100% complete, mastered and ready, and we have been in discussions in the last week on the options for pressing to vinyl with a pressing company.
I know it has been a few months already from the initial teaser but myself and Darren aren't affiliated with any label and are doing this off our own back without the intervention of a label or 3rd party.
The less "other" sources involved the better.

So in short, yes I've produced as couple steroid Trancers, no I'm not proud of them, but yes this is a genuine authentic track and authentically produced.

Thanks 🙂

Yes sadly I've produced a couple 'steroid' Trancers

SACRILEGE!!!!

Your remix of Into The Nova is actually kinda enjoyable for me man, jokes aside. I'm not into the 'steroid' stuff really, but you don't really go full injection to the vein. Modern parts used yeah, but also some really great sounds in there too. It feels much better than the average, I don't know why. Maybe include a steroid remix of In My Fantasy as the C side :ROFLMAO:

So myself and the Trance Classics channel are currently in discussion with a company to press the vinyl and we are looking to get the feelers out on how many to press.

Bare in mind this is a vinyl pressing at the initiall stage so can take a few months to go from start to shipping, but this is going to be a rare peice that will be worth it.
The digital release will come later.
If you have an interest in the vinyl head over to the Trance Classics page and reply to the post ☺️


Thanks

So this is going to be release only on vinyl and we're gonna have to wait even more months until that?
Hi, I intend on the vinyl to hit and as soon as the vinyl is shipped and start to get into people's hands it'll be available for digital too.
There won't be a long wait between people having it on vinyl and then being out on digital. We'll be aiming for a more aligned release 😊

Great to hear that!

Self released? Or label signed? If it's the second one, there might be added more time until the release also.

You've done a fantastic job, hearing these longer versions was a real treat for me today and they did not sound out of place amongst the other well known classics in the mix.
