Comments This starts with such a great beat and feel to it, really powerful and certainly catchy on the ears. This slows down, but the vibe remains and the purpose of the tune is very evident. You get a really good progressive build-up to the main melody and by the time you get there you're chomping at the bit. Fortunately you're not left feeling short changed as while the tune doesn't go mad it just delivers an awesome tone and feel. Listen to the backgrounds as they add a nice subtle approach to things, but equally add to the whole ambience. There are nice cut breaks in the tune as well, which just enhance it all up. Very nice tune.

Comments This has quite a powerful techno edge to it, not obvious; but it's there. Quite the opposite to when this slows down and you get vocals and piano. It then comes back in, a little less aggressive; but still a fairly full on tune. I like the flute that appears in the background, but it doesn't sound quite right for the rest of the tune. The melody also ends a bit too quick for my liking and I would have liked more to listen to. There is something here, it's just a bit mixed up and not sure of itself.

Comments I like the synths are emotions when this starts, quite in contrast the beat underneath; but go really nice together. It's an unusual sound, one that you won't be sure what it's going to do next. The slowdown is testament to that statement as it has a very melodic piano on top of some equally melodic synths, which at time to me sound out of sync. The melody then comes to life and it's quite a transformation by adding a good hard beat underneath, brings it all to life very nicely indeed. Whilst the melody is nice and long, there needs to be more power and passion in the second half. You do get a piano, but it's not enough or certainly in your face to really make a big difference. Odd tune, one to listen to.

Comments First time listening to this artists and so far so good. Good start and the slowdown is certainly quite different in terms of retaining all the energy of the start. When this gets going there's a whole load of extra noise that floods in, not overpowering; but nicely complimenting the rest of the tune. It moves really well and the feeling is very much euphoric, with a good helping of solid trance. The second half of the tune really puts this up there, it's amazing at what an extra synth can do and this does it. Huge amount of passion and a flood of emotions, really nice tune; didn't see it coming which made it all the more special.

Comments OK, prepare for war on your ears; awesome tune (flip side equally good). It's not the tune per say, it's just how it all comes together and the different synths that get used throughout. The compilation and production just works so very well and delivers an amazing experience. The melody is just so easy on the ears and has a real happy feel, with a bundle of purpose underneath. It's not full of sensational noises by any means, it just delivers a top sound and when the second half kicks in and you get a piano uplift, nice. This is a tune that shows you can do wondrous things with a multitude of sounds, wow.

Artist MEDO
Comments Been a while since I've really liked a MEDO tune, I've find his diversity a bit much in places. This gets back to roots and has a very catchy summer feel to it. Good simple beat, with equally simple synths on top which do give this a good morning feel. At 128 BPM it's not going to set the world on fire, but if you have a hangover or need to chill, this may well work. The synth work is actually really good throughout this and it's one that I do find very soothing. What is missing is that little extra something in the melody, it sounds like the piano is drowning a bit and needs some help (or less of). That said, good tune, good vibe and a good feeling.

Comments From the mighty Perfecto Fluoro label and from the Render One EP. This has a great bouncy feel to it, with that undertone of progressive trance. You are just getting into this when it slows down and it does kill the vibe a bit, you don't get that continuation for a good minute or so. Don't fret though, things start to warm up quite quickly and you're soon in a happy happy mood. The beat kicks back in and you hold your breath waiting for what happens next and its very slow coming, which again is a shame. In fact what happens is that the tune goes all progressive on you and starts a slow crank up, which does to some degrees work well. I do like the feel and vibe at this point, it's not urgent; but there's a want and desire there. Builds to a good climax and I feel rewarded and happy.

Comments This has a touch of cheese about it, but don't be put off and stick with it. The slowdown is nice, drops all the beats and takes you on an emotional journey; sounds good. It's here that the main tune is built up and it's quite progressive to say the least, even the vague vocals work. When the melody launches you get a whole number of sounds, but most importantly very much on the up note. Listen carefully to under the main tones and when the piano kicks in, very nice. This is a dance tune, but uplifting at the same time, the cheese thankfully fades away. I was hoping the melody would be extra-long, it needed that to push it to the top; not this time.

Artist Touchstone & First Effect
Comments Lots of noise in this one, sounds a bit flat if I'm honest or that the main melodies are a bit buried underneath everything else. This does move well though, I like the direction it takes you in; very epic in places. It's good that during the melody you do get a second bite and it's slightly enhanced with a piano, which is good. It needed to do a bit more than that, whereas the melody is very long; there's not enough variation. This will appeal too many of you so I would advise a good listen to this, there's a lot on offer.

Comments New to this label which looks to have been round for a while, so surprised it has been missed. This is a good tune, solid beat and some nice synth work throughout. The slowdown has a great feel, you get the hard synth early on; but it mellows out to almost a different type of tune, sweet. This fades in and out, to quite good effect; but is a tad on the long side. Once the melody kicks in you get a really solid trance tune, definitely one for the clubs. Lots of power and energy in this and it delivers it straight into your brain with no messing. Nice little uplifts here and there to add to the tempo. Good tune, I like.

Comments Odd tune this, not in the sound in that it varies as to whether I'm liking it. At the moment I am so let's stick with that. It's a bit of a mono drone tune, the beat stays the same throughout and the main synth is constant throughout with very little alteration. The melody isn't that much to shout about, almost exactly what you have heard since it started and on reflection I'm finding this tune a tad on the monotonous side, which is a shame. There is something here, but I'm not sure what and it needs a remix with some more passion.

Comments This is too short, at only 6 mins it needed more and it's a shame there isn't. Epic trance all over this, classic beat and an even more classic melody. The amazing thing is that whilst this is too short it packs so much in, there's even a second melody in here; not as epic as the first; but good enough. I reckon the artists just came into the studio and knew what he wanted to do and just did it. The outcome is really good, not soothing or elegant in anyway; just full on noise. Nice.

Comments Great start here, lots of passion pounding beats and an equally nice bit of synth work to get you hooked early. The slowdown works really well as it slows things down, but not to a halt and the way in which it builds up to the melody is nice. The melody slips nicely into play and where it has length, it does lack a bit in extra depth. You get pretty much the same bar a few random vocals, which I thought could have been used to better effect. What you do have though is a quality sounding tune, full of passion and some really nice synths, just nothing earth shattering.

Comments I like the drop beats in this, got a nice drum n bass touch in places; sounds good. This is taken from the Equinox EP and is a very solid trance tune. The beat changes quite a beat, but has a real fast pace to it. The main melody is throughout and in some places quite quiet, but a constant. When things start to move everything just gets louder and lifts in place, which sounds really nice. I like this tune, but I want more from it. Great vibe and feeling, but it doesn't knock me over. There are times when it lifts itself really well and I'm hoping it's the start of something good, but it doesn't happen. I'm feeling a bit too harsh with this tune, but towards the end there's a point where I thought it was going to let rip and it didn't, it needed to. Solid sound nonetheless.

Artist Rya & Manida vs. M3RT
Comments This tune teases quite early on, it gives you a taste of things to come; but a bit muddled up. The early piano sounds out of place and shouldn't have been used, but listen past this and what you have sounds promising. The slowdown goes a bit too slow and I started to lose interest, the piano sounds dreary to be frank. The tune does get going and is what you heard at the beginning, but more complete. It sounds a lot better and whilst it quite a distant sound, it does give a good vibe. The piano returns to give the tune a bit more bite and this time it sounds very much in place, shame it didn't earlier on. I'm perhaps being harsh with this, but the start didn't get my juices flowing.
