Adam Ellis - Mandarine

Adam Ellis - Mandarine

8.0 : Great!

Here's a slab of big, dark melodic trance. This 140bpm slammer from Adam Ellis takes us down a familiar trip of banging kicks and big offbeat basses, layering in tension building synth plucks over the intro. I can't help but be reminded of work by...

Liquid Soul - Nirvana

Liquid Soul - Nirvana

8.0 : Solid!

While Liquid Soul may be predominantly known for his psytrance, he's much more diverse than you give him credit. "Nirvana" is a smooth, gritty, pure tech trance track with all the right ingredients. A fairly understated track that pulls from Liquid...

Zak Moya - Cobra

Zak Moya - Cobra

7.4 : Cool!

Here's something different that could work really well as a transitional track between melodic sounds and more percussive tech trance. Situated somewhere between house, trance and tech, Zak Moya's Cobra treats us to a relatively percussion-heavy mix...

Bruce Cullen - 4 Sheets To The Wind (Danilo Ercole Remix)

Bruce Cullen - 4 Sheets To The Wind (Danilo Ercole Remix)

9.0 : Stunning!

Gosh this is good. You know, I miss these types of tracks, with huge sweeping, epic pad leads. I could run out of superlatives easily here folks, but this track is massive. It's both deep and proggy, yet huge and epic. We kick off with a percussive...

Andromedha - Thoughts Became Things (Jeremy Rowlett Dark Dub Mix)

Andromedha - Thoughts Became Things (Jeremy Rowlett Dark Dub Mix)

8.7 : Pretty Awesome

Yes! Here's some pure, deep trance done right. I'm starting to really love this Darkpload label group as much as the Saturate Audio label. Andromedha delivers an evocative, moody and atmospheric progressive trance bomb layered with lush synth work...

Harmonic Rush - Salvia

Harmonic Rush - Salvia

8.1 : Great!

Another quality dark and moody driving trancer from Harmonic Rush that would be perfect for a mid-set change of tone and maintaining energy. We're greeted by big basses tough percussion early on, before moving into subtle hints of the melodic tone...

Darren Porter & Gareth Weston - Malware

Darren Porter & Gareth Weston - Malware

8.4 : Pretty Great!

Big, dark, gritty trance. I love this stuff, however the quality ones are a little too few and far between. I have seen a raft of these types of tracks released over the past year or two, and a lot of them sound generic. Darren Porter and Gareth...

Will Atkinson pres. Darkboy - Damage (Chris Voro Remix)

Will Atkinson pres. Darkboy - Damage (Chris Voro Remix)

7.6 : Pretty Solid!

This is breaks! Sorry, but I had to preface this review with the fact that this isn't technically trance. However, lets toss genre classifications out the window, because this tune would obviously work perfectly in a proper, serious trance set. I...

Tangle - Paradox

Tangle - Paradox

8.6 : Great!

Another incredible slice of quality, uplifting trance. Yet another energetic, driving trancer from Tangle. This one has a really solid sense of tension, especially due to the style of the lead melody composition. The intro builds up in a familiar...

Alexandre Bergheau - Call me Up

Alexandre Bergheau - Call me Up

8.8 : Awesome!

This is huge! A massive, powerful uplifting anthem right here folks. With beautiful, smooth production values, crisp hats and driving basses set the tone early on before we're introduced to the main synth riff in the intro. This then drops away,...

Simon Patterson - Brush Strokes

Simon Patterson - Brush Strokes

8.2 : Great!

Simon Patterson returns with his signature cross-genre dark, driving trance mixed with elements of psytrance and uplifting trance. Brush Strokes delivers a big bass driven, banging trancer that eagerly builds tension early on with dark acid riffs...

NX-Trance - You'll Never Be Mine

NX-Trance - You'll Never Be Mine

7.5 : Pretty Cool

This one's pretty cool. I'll admit, when I heard the sample, I was immediately drawn to the epic breakbeat breakdown, with short bursts of big synths set against, dare I say it a sub step break beak, replete with a tad of 'wub web'! But damn it, it...

Bastian Salbart - One More Day

Bastian Salbart - One More Day

8.0 : Great!

Here's a slab of gritty, detailed and articulated deeper trance from Bastian Salbart. One More Day could almost be forgiven for being a little too heavy on the 'Trance 2.0' vibe, however it treads carefully around the cheese to become a slamming...

Tangle - Aerial

Tangle - Aerial

8.5 : Pumping!

If you want a tune you can just go nuts to on the dance floor, then this has to be a perfect choice. This is classic old school sounding uplifting trance with a massive riff, coupled with a big, bouncy bassline and kick combo. Tangle, known for his...

John O'Callaghan feat. Erica Curran - I Believe (Giuseppe Ottaviani Remix)

John O'Callaghan feat. Erica Curran - I Believe (Giuseppe Ottaviani Remix)

7.6 : Pretty Solid!

Ah how I love Giuseppe Ottaviani! His classic works from the 2005 - 2007 era are astonishing! Here we have him on the remix front, applying his signature plucky, driving sound to the vocal monster 'I Believe' from John O'Callaghan and Erica Curran....
