An unusual foray into some unexpectedly cheesy progressive trance.
Made for the Southern Fried Soju Girl while she was in Korea. Trance goes out with a bang.
An out-of-character outburst of happy progressive trance and house. It won’t happen again, promise.
Much like the set before it, this was about closing the books on an amazing era in trance and moving beyond it as it stagnated, to the genres that were revitalizing and evolving in more innovative ways.
One of the last and best trance sets I recorded. By the late 90’s trace was becoming either very light, lazy progressive or very dark, dull and psy, neither of which I was enjoying. The golden age of epic beauty trance was all but over, and the powerful anthems of Prolekult, Dream Inn, Banzai, Ascension and others were drifting away, to be replaced by the comical elevator music that trance would become.
Deep into the trance vaults.
From the comic to the (hard)core, an exploration.
Frankfurt’s best and some of the rest.
Not that new now, but still…
Slow evolutions from deep and hard to happy and heavy.
