Title I Love Trance Temple One Remix

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist MORPH & Van Eyden pres. Lexwood
Comments The title of this almost put me off. Put that to one side and you've actually got a half decent tune here. Takes a while to get going, but once you get there it's quite pleasant on the ears. The synth does get a bit irritating, but bear with it. The main anthem is a good solid sound, the beat moves well and the noise sounds OK. It does end rather abruptly when you think it's about to really take off, which is a shame. A really good tune, with some equally good remixes on the same vinyl, so well worth a listen, even if the title is a bit naff.

3/5 : Good
Artist Mindsoundscapes
Comments This is a nice subtle sort of tune. Starts really strong, builds up a good head of steam. It slows down a bit and this does kind of kill the mood, but the build up kicks back in. This time a new sound is thrown into the mix, which is different to the start and gives the whole feel a nice boost. Then all the music comes together in a nice crescendo, sounds really epic and uplifting. Lacks a really serious underlying bass line and the main melody could have been pronounced, but a solid tune none the less.

3/5 : Good
Artist Carl B
Comments A sold enough tune, although a bit repetitive in places. Great start, with some vocals really teasing you into the tune. This then launches with a nice hard beat and lots of sound. The main anthem is really nice, moves with pace and delivers a really uplifting vibe. It's a shame there's only the one. It sounds like it's shaping up for another go and then stops. The ending is quite drawn out, which is what lets this down. Good vibe, solid beat; but a dragged out ending.

Artist Nucvise vs. Static Blue
Comments You have to stay with this tune for about 4 minutes and then it really starts. I first heard this whilst walking over London Bridge and it really did make me walk faster ! Fast and powerful anthem here, some seriously epic trance directly aimed at the peak time club scene. So, is that a bad thing ? Not at all. The anthem is long, so plenty of time to absorb everything that is going on and this is a real brain pounder. Been a while since I've heard such a distinctive sound and this works a treat. A real little gem this, so go buy it.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Michael Badal
Comments A bit on the bland side. Repeats far too often and doesn't really offer any change in direction. The beat is solid enough and the overall sound is OK, just a bit samey. The main synth is OK, but it's nothing new and from the classic trance sound book. The main tune is again OK, but nothing really special. It delivers a sound and you'll either love or hate it. I'm neither, much more in between as there are parts that I think are pretty good, the rest is just pretty samey.

1/5 : Poor
Artist Bissen
Comments To be honest I don't know why I have selected this tune as it does absolutely nothing for me. There is real potential, but it blows up too much steam and just doesn't deliver. Just when you think it's about to, it stops dead in the water and then kicks in later on. The feel is about right and I like the bouncy vibe, it just doesn't go anywhere. Well it does, but by that time you are wanting to turn it off. A very disappointing flat tune from an otherwise good artist.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Thomas Datt
Comments When this first came out back in 2004 is scored a respectable 3/5 and this remix has thankfully improved on that. Mr Tyas does give this a much harder edge and it's a welcome one, but the underlying tune stays the same as that worked well last time. This time it's more pacey and more trance. Previously I felt the tune was much deeper and more for the ‘purist', whereas this just throws a whole lot of noise at you. I like the build up and subtle intro to the main theme as it does bring back those memories of old. A welcome remix.

Title Glaze Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Arctic Quest
Comments ‘Glaze Over' would be a better title for this as at times it is very dreary. Just about holds enough interest in this, as it's rather long which is where it fails. Very simple ploppy type synth throughout, which at first is quite novel; but by the end it's irritating. I can't quite get to grips with what the artist was trying to achieve as it's neither club or chill, an in between that doesn't really work. At times the tune is quite uplifting, but for the majority it is quite mediocre. Don't want to be overly negative as this isn't awful, just a more acquired taste.

3/5 : Good
Artist Aly & Fila
Comments Another group that go hot and cold. This is nice and warm ! Has a very old feel to this, simple synths on a simple beat; but it just sounds a bit dated. That's not a bad thing; it actually gives it quite a nice fresh sound. Two cracks at a melody, both very similar and fairly long in terms of length. This is a good enough tune that I think it warrants a listen at least.

3/5 : Good
Artist Daniel Kandi
Comments This guy is popping up all over the place. He has a very distinct sound and it would be good to hear something slightly different. That aside, you can't go wrong with this. A club tune through and through, it's all here. The goods beat, nice bit of synth work, a good noisy noise and that familiar feel. Middle of the road would be a good term to describe this, so that's what I'll do. If you want something that people will enjoy, then look no further.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Dennis Shepherd
Comments I really like this record because it's so mellow and simple. Has a real underlying oriental feel to it as well, which I've always liked. The whole tune is one big melody of sound which is why I like this. It just keeps going, delivering a refreshing sound. This is a great one to break up the heavy tunes or even better at the end of a long day on the way home in the car. The artist has clearly given this a lot of thought and I'm glad he has. If you want something that people will like that isn't the usual banging mainstream, then look no further as this delivers; large.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Mindsoundscapes
Comments I was contacted by SA-UK (thanks Stuart) to review this tune, always happy to help where there is free music available. I have to admit to having had to listen to this several times and it was only via my MP3 player that I really got into this. The Fischer mix is by far the best. A very meldoic and atmospheric track, very rich in some really cool synths; with a nice underlying beat. The main melody is nice and long and has that extra lift at the end to give it that little extra boost. A strange one this in that it's certainly a solid enough trance tune, but when to play it. This will certainly lift the crowd, so I'll let you decide.. That said, the Stoneprophet Remix is a much harder tune. It also has all the nice ambience about it; but on a much harder edge. A quality uplifting trance track.

Title Dancing in the Moonlight Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Breakfast
Comments This is not a storming trance tune, but is a really nice mellow trance tune. This delivers a good solid beat throughout, with a very subtle synth on top. The depth comes from a very atmospheric synth that changes tempo, lifting the tune as it plays. This is a long tune and the time is well used by the artist. The track fluctuates throughout, with emphasis being given to the synth at different times; which really creating a very atmospheric tune. It's not a classic club tune and is certainly to be heard when you are winding down, but it just has that ‘something' that you'll like.

Title Till The Sky Falls Down Dub Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Dash Berlin
Comments This is a different sort of tune. Doesn't try to be the best, but what it does try is to be different. I like the bouncy feel of the beat, very solid; but flows real easy on the ears. The synths are in full flow throughout, but there's no real anthem or melody. Yes, there are some up moments; but nothing that really grabs. The tune just flows along until it reaches the end. Odd you may think, but it does sound good and certainly different. Not a chart buster, but worth a listen just for a change of tune.

Title Emphase Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Meridian
Comments A happy tune to say the least. The artist has taken the tried and tested trance formula and wrapped a tune around it. It works to a degree, although does get a bit heavy on the ears in places. The main anthem is actually quite funky, only because there's a little break in the middle and the beat really kicks. Apart from that, a mediocre tune that sounds OK; but nothing special. If you want a track that will deliver a solid sound, but you've heard it all before; then look no further.
