    Monoverse - Painting Shadows [FSOE Parallels]



    A brand new label under the FSOE umbrella focusing on progressive trance. My understanding is that unlike Pure Trance Progressive, for example, Parallels will focus more on the mid 130 BPM range, a style that has gone away with the years.

    Not really trance. And why do producers keep on insisting using that terrible snare/clap. The tune lacks nuance. Same boring beatwork going.
    Where is the music in todays "trance"?

    I quite like it, and think that the clap is good and fits the track. That it's unoriginal is another thing.

    The track is really nice, one of the nicest of this year I must say. I like the melodies. I quite enjoyed this style few years ago.

    @S3baman it's called Painting Shadows, not Parallels.

    Wow, how did I manage to screw the title so badly when the link I posted has the right one

    I really enjoy this actually! Monoverse has been on quite a role lately.

    Sounds nice overall, but again ruined by that cheap-sounding snare.

    glad to see some of you guys like the tune regardless of the apparently shit snare a little surprised as this track has way less in-your-face drums than some of my other tunes. are we talking about the snare/clap on the 2s and 4s, or the snare rolls?

    how's this not trance? rolling bassline, subtle acids, pads and atmospheres, all pretty staple elements of trance i'd say. ah well, maybe one day ill make real trance or something...

    Its replacing FSOE Excelsior so expect basically Big Room Trance under the guise of Progressive. Although, this one is really nice!

    False, this is not taking the place the Excelsior. Yes, Excelsior is now independent and there's a void in what FSOE used to offer, but it's not a 1 to 1 match. Parallels is more in sync with melodic, groovy progressive trance and not big room.

    You and the reddit guys can keep on pretending trance is doing good.

    Don't listen to that. More of this 'non-trance' stuff, please!

    However, if I was to offer just a bit of constructive criticism, I'd only say the break comes too soon, no release.

    We're not pretending trance is doing well. We recently had a big discussion about why uplifting sucks and what can be made differently, and it's quite a one sided argument. Everyone agrees that degga-degga is beyond boring and stale, and has been for years. Zero creativity, the white noise is awful and overused, too many labels putting to out too many releases at the same time. Those are just a few of the problems.

    Having said that, there are quality releases in all sub-genres, and progressive trance is but one of them.

    you must be the life of the party lol. i didn't say anything about whether trance was doing well or not. i'm just one guy making the music i want to make, wondering how it's not trance

    if you care so much about trance and want it to change, go make some just the way you want
