    Sounds extremely boring... Sounds like something all these small uplifting labels with less than 50 followers put out every week. Would expect a lot more from a bigger name producer and label. Where's the hook? Where's the character? The beat is in terrible contrast with the synths, way too pounding and hard.

    This is the exact stuff that is killing trance and making people feel fatigued to it. If you're going to make something like this, at least put in a catchy lead hook.

    I think it's great, tracks like these really help to set the mood in longer dj sets, but yeah, everything is so rushed today, people have the urge to big hits and stuff...

    You can make great Trance music without a catchy lead, surely? Not into rigid do's and don'ts when it comes to artists choosing how they want to make music at that point and time, seems a bit counter-intuitive. Saying it's killing trance seems massively unfair to me mate.

    Listened to this track again and liked it. Regarding sound/production... Soundcloud and/or YT set rip is possibly worse source for judgement on these things, although not disagreeing with you completely, it's not the most stunning sound design we ever heard!

    OH MY GOD. A 142BPM TRACK? NO WAY.

    Seriously - here's a 155bpm track which is amazing... and below that is a 116bpm track which is amazing.

    SPEED DOESN'T MATTER.

    Evolution - Escape from Tokyo (155bpm)


    Diversion - Falling (116bpm)
