Nitrous oxide seems to be leaving the scene
I honestly can't blame him. His style was perfect for when he started (2005-2006), and he adapted well to the electro era of the late 2000s, but it was quickly overshadowed when steroid, big room EDM became the main focus of trance. 17 years is also a very long time.
Hopefully his 2022 album has great music, trance or not.

Well, first aid isn't too bad it sounds it was made in 2006.

I like your thrusts. This track is very bright, I'm currently working on something darker do you have any ideas or can I follow?


techno with strong trance accents would be seen ;)

Nitrous Oxide - 'felt ignored by the scene'...i wonder what he means by this?
Maybe he is hinting at Above & Beyond. They took Anjunabeats to another direction, Nitrous Oxide did try with tracks like "IPeople" but perhaps he did not really like that genre.

If you wanna make a career in music you shouldnt really be making trance. Unless you make whatever Armin and his shitty radioshow supports you are fucked and even if you do that you are most likely fucked anyway because trance is not a popular genre and the competition is very high already among djs.
I admire producers such as Narel and Facade who are trying to build careers on making quality music and it could have worked if Armin decided to play music like that, instead of constantly being stuck with the template braindead unicorn progressive/trance. I understand he has mouths to feed and a big company behind him but that has according to me been the biggest factor in the downfall of trance. With great power comes great responsibility
