Title Break the Light Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Alex MORPH
Comments For Alex, this is quite a tame affair. It has a nice beat, a pretty plucky tempo and a nice main rip. This is a typical tune that you will hear in the club and no doubt you will enjoy it. What it lacks is that killer moment when you think ‘fuck me, I need this tune'. It borders on cheesy in places, but a bit of cheese now and then isn't that bad. I like the sound, very euphoric and at times uplifting; but it's nothing that will blow you away. A good tune though, so don't get me wrong.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist DJ Butterfly
Comments A very different sound and feel to this, which always catches my attention. Yes, it's a trance tune; but it has something different about it. The beat at the beginning verges on techno, but just stays away from that; but then it changes. A superb build up of sound with some really subtle synth work that works a treat. The funky bit just oozes class. This is simple, but simple done so very well. The synths work very well in harmony and the tempo is increased several times for your listening pleasure. Not only that, but extra ‘uumphh' is added to the mix to ensure you are still listening. This is what music is all about, this is what trance is all about. The downside, it ends.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Shato
Comments OK, this definitely tries to be different. Lots of weird vocals echoing in out, to some degree to great effect. It then quietens down, to quite some degree that you think a different track has started. This does slow things down and when the main tune kicks in, you have kinda lost a bit of interest. This is very much at the hard end of the scale, lots of serious noise going on that completely engulfs the senses. Bit of sensory overload for me, which I don't always like. It has a market, just not mine.

3/5 : Good
Artist Daniel Loubsche & Illyra
Comments Wow, this is a banging and pumping tune. Long build up and then another barrel of noise smashes you in the face. Really drives a hard beat this, but not too hard; the synth calms it down a tad, which is a good thing. Can't make my mind up about this, on the one hand I like the sound and the fact that it really does kick home and on the other it doesn't work, too hard. Very much a mood record, so i will sit on the fence.

3/5 : Good
Artist Luke Terry
Comments I like the beat here; it has a nice twangy edge to it which freshens up the sound very nicely. The build works well, doesn't slow right down it starts at a nice pace and just goes from there. Oddly enough, then it slows down just as you think it's going to let rip. It then builds up again, which doesn't really work twice; a shame. The main tune is then pretty much what you've heard, but it does throw in some extra sound to lift it and give it that little bit extra. There's also a nice simple synth that carries it all really well. Ends a bit short, just when things are really going well. Bit too stop start for my liking, but that aside a nice sound.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Indecent Noise
Comments Very pacey tune, but doesn't do enough early on to keep you interested. I like the sound once it gets going, simple enough with a synth on top and the odd vocal thrown in. Sounds a tad on the dated sound though if I'm honest. The artist hasn't put a huge amount of effort into making it stand out and it borders on a bedroom production. Should have been shorter and condensed it down as also stops quite a lot and thus loosing the momentum. OK, but nothing more than that.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Meridian
Comments This one has a fairly slow pace and then tries to make it sound faster than it is. I like the idea, but the execution is a tad lacking. This isn't anything that you've not heard a hundred times before, which doesn't mean it's bad. What it does mean is that it's not different and doesn't stand out. IN this age of trance when tunes are a plenty, you want that something different. The main anthem is OK, moves well and sounds pretty good, but that's where it ends.

3/5 : Good
Artist The Synergy
Comments I like the 80s electronic feel to this. This tries something different by delivering very different and unique sound. If you have heard ‘Visitors' by Koto, this is very similar. It stops and the lull is a nice reverbed beat with the now very evident synth. This builds into the main tune and it sounds good. Very different, very epic and very unique. Its repetitive which I think will annoy some people, but I think you have to take this at face value and think about what the artist has tried to do. A really good attempt at something different.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Aerium
Comments I like this. Good trance sound to it, lots of old sounding synths; you know the types that work. Nice start, the beat is really solid and it gives you that feel that something good is on the way. There are 2 anthems, both a tad on the short side; but both deliver a real quality sound. Things just pick up and the noise gets real trance, one of them ‘hands in the air' moment. Shame about the length of the anthems, but you can't have everything in life. A quality tune one the less.

Title North to South Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Ben Preston
Comments This is a pleasantly surprising tune. You need to let it run for a bit and it turns into a really quirky sound. I like the simple beat and even more simple synth that forms the main sound. It works on a very simple progressive formula of building bit by bit and it really works. The big plus to this is that once things are rolling it's like one big long melody. There is the obligatory pause in the middle, but then things get going again. It's not a classic anthem, but one that has really grown on me for pure simplicity.

3/5 : Good
Artist Misja Helsloot vs Peter Martijn Winijia
Comments I had to listen to this a few times as it's quite long and deep. It's probably the length that really hurts this. The build up is good, but too long for what you get. I do like the deep feel to this and the underlying bass is really nice, lots of depth. The melody is solid enough, again very much on the deep side of things; but it delivers a strong sound. This is a club tune, one that you will hear due to the great bass line. It's one of them that you will hear and want to know the name. A solid tune.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Oxygen Shadow
Comments This is a very good tune and one that has been getting a lot of play from me. This group have only released 1 tune a year for the past 4; so it's well worth the wait. A thumping melody that goes on and on and gets better and better. I have listened to this over and over because it delivers such an awesome sound. This is pure unadulterated trance in its purist form. I challenge anyone not to like this. This is quality, by it (if you can find it).

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Thomas Kelle & Martin Juha
Comments This is a fantastic EP; all 3 tracks are superb in their own rights. Tonnes of energy in this, a very pacey sounding track; but don't let that put you of. Great sound, very high end trance; probably verging on techno. Melody is very euphoric with a great synth and a nice subtle one in the background. This tune scores well, but the EP as a whole scores a stunning 5. There won't be at tune you won't like. Very very nice.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Tritonal
Comments This is an OK tune. Starts a bit slushy and you have to keep with this to get to the real funky stuff. The melody isn't really a melody as such. It's more of a funk the tune up and lay down some decent sounds. This is highlighted as the tune does top and slow well down and it's here that things really suffer. The beat is really good, but the flow is broken up; which is a real shame. I like the feel of this; quite techy in places and the noise is a tad different to the usual. Might just be me, so have a listen and judge for yourself.

3/5 : Good
Artist Mark Burton
Comments This bounces along quite nicely. Good vibe from the beginning, laying down a solid foundation to a solid melody. The melody just lifts the tune up and gives it some serious sound, nothing more. No fancy synths blasting all over the place; just a hard deep sound. Listen to this loud and it will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. This is a great tune to warm up to, lots of feeling and that deepness really gets into your head. Nice.
