This mix is similar to Dreadnaut in that it is a kind of classics compilation, in this case of UK hard trance. This mix combines some big anthems with some more obscure tracks from roughly the late 90’s up to about 2003, the idea being to present a seamless mix within this style, covering the period when this music evolved from Choci-style hard acid trance (i.e. trancier acid techno), exemplified by the Wippenberg and DJ Paola tracks, to Frantic-style UK hard trance (i.e. trancier hard house), as exemplified by the Jon Doe and Daniel Ro tracks. For much of this time the UK sound remained fairly aloof from the European hard trance scene, ocassionally taking on influences but always remaining sonically quite distinct and often not following the fads that swept through the German scene such as the slower bpm’s that came in in the late 90’s or the wub-wub reverse bass sound that Mauro Picotto pioneered.

There are some excellent tunes on this mix, and I’m very happy with how it turned out … if you like this sound I’m sure you’ll agree!
