Title Phoria Elevation Remix

3/5 : Good
Artist Majai
Comments OK, you have to REALLY bear with this tune. I must have listened through the various mixes a dozen times as they all threaten to deliver and then don't. This mix is slightly different in that once you are half way through a new sound is presented to you and it really lifts proceedings up very nicely. In fact, it's a shame that the beginning of the tune ruins this otherwise it would have been a very special tune. It's got a great flowing feel to it, very simple sound; but very effective. Doesn't last for long enough, but it warrants buying for the 3 or so minutes of pleasure.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Push
Comments Well, you can't argue with this guys, classic all the way. This is taken from the UP ‘Universal Voice' which is a real must. It has all the vibes that you'd expect from Push, the feeling is quite retro of 10 years ago when the legendary ‘Universal Nation' came out. This just delivers music, nothing else. The artist has gone back to his roots and put something really special together, a treat almost for all the loyal fans out there. The anthem is long and changes frequently with it becoming more and more euphoric and it continues. This just works, there's no beating around the bush, buy this.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Myon
Comments I have to admit that I struggled with this as I really wanted to like it. If all the different mixes were mixed together it would be perfect, but they all have their pit falls. OK, ignore the beginning of this; it's shite and sounds like a Tiesto record. Wait for the vocals and then the main melody kicks in, this is the good stuff. Very uplifting and also very soothing, it sounds really nice. Shame with the shite techno crap at the beginning and the end otherwise this would be a much better tune.

3/5 : Good
Artist Impulsive Drive
Comments Someone kindly sent me a copy of this and I'm glad they did, it's a really cool little number. This is a classic trance at its best, the best is just a good beat and the noise all around is very epic and uplifting. It's a shame it doesn't last for long or at least give a good session on the main anthem. There's already a good tune here, but it needs a remix to give it that extra uumph that a second melody blast would almost certainly resolve. Don't be put off though, a solid number either way.

3/5 : Good
Artist Hydro Aquatic
Comments Fresh and funky feel to this. Nothing that you haven't heard before, but sometimes it's nice to hear it again. Good start, but it does take a while, for the tune to really start. Once you are there, it's solid enough with a good sound. Doesn't do much more than that just keeps spitting out the same vibe, which is a slight disappointment. If you want something that will mix well and doesn't throw in any huge surprises, then this is it. A nice tune and worth your ear time.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Timo Pralle
Comments This is a quality tune, but too short. Good beat, good feeling and an awesome anthem thrown in for good measure. It's quite subtle to be honest, but it works. Great atmosphere being built up in the background which comes to a fantastic crescendo of sound. It's just so annoying it's so short. Don't be down, the anthem is a nice long one and changes throughout to give you that extra bit that you want. This is a cracking tune, so go and buy it now.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Endforest
Comments A very mellow tune this, which you'd kind of guess by the title. Now, I like my chilled sound and this does deliver in most aspects, just not all. The main sound is constant throughout and after a while it does kind of grind on you. The beat is nice and smooth and there are some nice synths which fade in and out in places. The main melody does up the beat a tad and try to do the uplifting trick on you and almost succeeds. It just needs more synth work or at least a change in tempo of the constant noise throughout. A good effort.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist John Huijbers
Comments Hhhmmm, there's a nice twang about this. This has quite a nice dark and moody feel to it, but then it perks up with a nice bit of synth and piano. Unfortunately, at this point the tune dies off into a kind of nothingness; which is annoying. It does eventually kick back in; but it's been too long and you've got bored. The tune doesn't really explode either, promises to; but just doesn't. This is an OK tune, just not as good as it started to sound.

Title Space Colonization Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Natlife
Comments OK, this takes a while to get going; but it is worth the wait. A very space sounding tune, with lots of noise going on. Good reverbing sort of bassline just keeps going over and over. The melody moves really well, lots of feeling; but just not long enough. This needs two melodies to lift it out of the shadows. A real shame as there is real potential here. Worth a listen nonetheless as it's still a solid enough track.

Title The Rise Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist John Huijbers
Comments Very slow to get going this, with a really weird (and now and then irritating) noise to contend with. I think this track tries hard to be progressive and deep, but then uplifting, which can get a tad confusing. There are two melodies, both almost identical. I can't make my mind up with this tune, I listen to it as I type and I'm quite enjoying it. It has a different sound than the current crop, so I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt. Have a listen yourself and make your own mind up.

Title Season Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Manuel le Saux
Comments You can always trust this artist to deliver a solid trance sound and he doesn't disappoint here. This tune does take a while to get going, lots of build up which in itself is very good; but you want the meat. Once it does get going the sound is good, nothing complicated just a sound of noise that is well blended in the right places. Does verge slightly on the hard edge of trance, but that's because it has a pounding feel to it. I like this because it's simple and doesn't try to be too clever in what it's doing.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Krivi
Comments A beautifully worked track this and I don't use that word often. This has such a great happy feel to it, really is becoming my sort of sound. The anthem is great and flows well. Doesn't change too much, but just delivers a constant nice feeling. The real killer is that it simply isn't long enough. It sounds so good, you want me and there isn't any; which is a huge shame. This would have been a monster; it just has to remain a great one.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Aerium
Comments Got an old school feel to this, can't quite explain why; just sounds that way. Nice solid beat from the off, with a nice rumbling tone in the background. Pauses quite early on and a piano break is introduced which was quite unexpected. The tune then starts to build up again, all this is quite a slow process. A different synth is added, but just when you think the tune is going to really explode it just doesn't. This is a real shame as there is oodles of potential here, just not been fully realised.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Cass & Slide
Comments I have the original of this when it first came out back in 1999, so was intrigued to see it re-appear on a bootleg. Cass & Slide were the monster group of their time, delivering seriously wicked trance, and the early trance stuff at that. Takes a while to get moving this, but please do wait. This is the sound where it all began and you owe it that much. OK, it's not evolutionary, but it was certainly revolutionary. Turn it up, close your eyes and listen hard. This is just pure gold, nothing less. Yes, it's an old tune and yes it's not as funky as some of the new stuff; but just listen to it. Cass & Slide were the early pioneers or trance and I love this as I did back then. Bring it on.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Lexwood feat. Ferrin & Low
Comments First time I heard this I really liked it, but I've calmed down quite a bit. Not sure if I got it confused with another tune. It's an OK tune, just a tad on the bland side in places. It does have a great drum break early on that really gives it a fast and furious feel, but doesn't last for long. The main anthem is OK, nothing special. It makes a noise, but not one that really makes me listen; if you know what I mean. It's a well produced tune, just needs a push in the right direction via a remix.
