3/5 : Good
Artist Sebastian Brandt pres. Genua
Comments This has a nice trippy sort of feel to it. It's the rain like sound throughout, plus a rather intense synth. The background is also quite moving, very hard and has that good club feel to it. Solid beat and bassline make this an almost certain classic for the clubs. Good production with the way it's all been put together, sounds good the old ears.

Title Lost Emotions Brian Kearney Remix

3/5 : Good
Artist Fire & Ice
Comments This is one of them tracks that either needed to be slightly longer or have an extra melody. The melody in this is very solid and passionate, a real toe taper. Nice subtle synth work and then a nice pounding bassline with a little bit more noise to up the tempo. It's fairly long, but compared to the rest of the tune this slightly lets it down. A solid tune nonetheless.

Artist Deep Voices
Comments A real pounding tune this. I picked this up for the Robert Nickson remix, but the Original was much better. Quite an easy build up here, but beware ! When the melody for this kicks in it's hard and very very passionate. Not quite what you are expecting, but a nice surprise either way. Although the melody is good is does sort of fade out into the background, which is a shame. It's hard throughout and there are a few times you think it's going to launch and it doesn't, which again is disappointing. A good hard track though and one that the clubbers will love.

Title Rain Clouds Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Paski
Comments This is probably one of the most bizarre tune you'll here this year. A very simple beat and the most catching synth throughout. This borders on chillout stuff, but has just enough pace to keep it dancey. It's a shame that it's not consistent throughout as it does move around a lot. Quite a few pauses and rain noises, which although quite nice, slow it down. That aside, for a nice progressive trance number then this is probably one of the better ones I've heard in a while.

3/5 : Good
Artist E.A.T. Project
Comments This is a really cool and catchy tune. Aims directly at the clubs and has all the nice traits of a club trance tune. Doesn't knock you for 6, but the melodies are really catchy; all be it somewhat basic. Nice beat that flows well throughout, the tune doesn't loose pace too often. Good long tune that has feeling throughout. As I say, it's not a monster tune; but one for the collection nonetheless.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Apex
Comments Took a few listens before this started to grow one me. This is one of them tunes that because I know the remixer I feel obliged. This drags a bit and to be honest is quite cheesy in places. The anthem is quite catchy, but it's nothing I haven't heard and is very similar to what Factoria have done in the past. This isn't brill, but if you like this sort of sound then you'll be happy.

Title Above Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Fable
Comments I like the kettle drum noise in this and the haunting type of synth. Slow to get really going, but once it lets rip this moves along nicely. A happy tune is a good way to describe this, good pick you up tune on the way home from work. Nice beat that moves throughout and a synth in the background also keeps the pace moving. Just needs a bit of uumph to really lift this above the norm, but a funky track as is.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Alliance
Comments Subtle build up here. The beat pounds and there's a synth in the background that changes the tempo, which in turn launches into a really nice piano break. Starts very strong, which is unusual; but very welcome. You then get a great melody, full of passion and feeling. Lots of noise nicely brought together under a piano break; cool. This slows off, but the tempo is maintained very nicely with lots of other noises. Needs another melody and then we would perhaps have perfection.

Title Cobra Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Midway
Comments A journey into the dark side of trance. A bizarre tune that uses this weird moog sound I'm hearing quite a bit. I like the eerier feel of this tune, gives it a demonic sort of feel. Very atmospheric, but not exactly what I'd call a club tune. This works on a reverb sound, fading in and out and then into a normal tune. Nice catchy synth, but no real melodies to speak of. It just flows throughout the tune adding noises here and there. There's something about this that is very catchy, best you judge for yourself.

Title Beauty of Sound Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Passenger 75
Comments This has a really good piano break early on, which is totally out of the blue. This is built upon with some nice euphoric synths for a bit before a really hard bassline comes in. Again, this is quite unexpected; but quite good. From the off the tune sounds quite hard and it gradually gets harder as the tune progresses. The melody is long and builds all the time, although I thought it started to get a muffled. A good solid club tune.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Jones & Stephenson
Comments This builds beautifully. Pacey beat from the off that just keeps adding away until it dies out completely, which when I first heard was really disappointing. That is purely a smoke screen as from then on in this lets rip with a vengeance and turns into a euphoric beauty. Good beat and lots of melodic synths all the way to the end. A strange sound, not exactly a true trance tune; but it's different and bloody good.

3/5 : Good
Artist Static Blue
Comments Another solid outing from Static Blue, a tune with many mixes. I prefer the Original as it keeps it plain and simple, doesn't go overboard; but still has a good solid feel and tone to it. There are I suppose two melodies although they do run into each other. Has a bit of a frantic feel to this and a very ?underwater? feel, something to do with the title perhaps. I like this as it delivers what you think it will after the first 30 seconds. Nothing glamorous, just a solid sounding tune.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Kamil Polner pres. Polo
Comments From the moment this started I liked it. Fresh beat, nice happy feel and it sounds good. From the off you get some good uplifting synth work, which really do have a good feeling factor. Solid beat and a great couple of melodies, this is euphoric trance how it should be. The only groan I have is the gap between the melodies where the tune slows down quite a bit, but this shouldn't dampen things. A great tune, one that I've been waiting for.

Title White Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Smith & Pledger
Comments The flip side to this ?Black?, is crap so avoid it. A happy tune, with a simple beat and simple synths. It stops early on to virtually just a synth and it sounds really good. This builds back up to the beat and then launches into a nice happy tune. Nothing too complicated, but a good beat with a nice synth which changes tempo throughout and is further built on with other synths. Works well for me.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Fineart
Comments I must admit to being a tad disappointed with this. A good artists and remixer should have come up with something that is much more punchy. This is a bit dreary in that the beat doesn't do much and once the tune is running, nothing happens that grabs you by the balls. In between the melodies the beat is monotonous to be honest and I almost turned it off. Not the best I've heard.
