Me it'd have to be John Askew. Despite his being popular, never liked antything by him.
What about the so called king of uplifting Giuseppe Ottaviani, he has some really nice songs, but he is way overhyped.
And that's what I mean he produced some really good music for a while. Which is the last song from him that you like. Recently he is all over the place with very mediocre music, but still regarded as the best.Hes not overhyped for me,he was my favourite producer around 2018,made some really good tracks. Overhyped for me means guys who make just average stuff,but seem to be elevated to a level by the public.

I definitely know what you mean. The only side of Markus I really like is his pre 2002 vinyl only stuff. Those were highly professionally produced and haunting pieces of music but alas none of them really got any exposure and remained in the niche state until, who knows they're re-released digitally.Markus Schulz, I tried listening to his albums and compilations a number of times over a course of 15 and everything is just utterly boring. When non EDM people say all electronic music is the same I get what they are saying when listening to Markus, the definition of boredom. All the songs just blend into a single endless piece of of lifeless music.
PS He managed to do the same to the ISOS series after he took over.
Not sure what you mean by that but Markus wasn't a newcomer back in 2005 as he had been producing easily for 10/15 years before that. As mentionned in my previous post, his Plastik/Eve and all related sublabels (most of which I personnaly own on 12'') was ace progressive trance/house. He then got more into a mainstream sound after 2003 which is where I lost interest.Markus Schulz is great example here. Once he appeared into scene until 2005 "Without You Near" (which was one of my favorite albums and brought sort of new style to trance), he hasnt produced anything interesting. It has been especially terrible in recent 5 years.
Even back in 2005 and Linkin' People he was quite a generic producer. Can't say more of the Nu-NRG sound, never been my thing.I need to make a correction I also don't hate GO since I actually like a lot of his songs. I just don't think he is this secret master of trance music that everyone says he is. That's just me, for example imo Craig Connelly > Giuseppe Ottaviani, but I know most people will disagree and that's just fine.
