Recently, GT Digital’s “The Future of Hard Trance” has given a definitive shape of what they’re trying to capture in the current hard trance revival. The CD opens with the rhythmic percussion intro of Aponaut – “The Future of Hard Trance.” Reminiscent of the seminal Art of Trance – Madagascar plucking sounds, we’re lead into a powerful offbeat bass and gated synth riffs. We’re moved thr

Currently the most powerful and unique trance duo out right now. These two producers from the Ukraine are untouchable when it comes to original and hard cutting edge trance. If you took a liking into their previous EP ( Review: Locanda & Kuznetsow Pres. Der Ketzer – Heretic EP | HRR013 ) this two track EP will be right down your ally. If this was released in the early 00’s, we guarantee all the major

There’s been an awakening, Have you felt it? I sure have. For the second year in a row I find myself coming across tracks that remind of the early rave days. If you haven’t noticed already a hard trance revolution has been brewing the past two years beside the ever growing psy-trance & tech-trance movements. The sound that got me into trance in the late 90s was of the course the harder side of t

USTM’s Best of 2016: Radio Shows/Podcasts

Dec 16, 2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Every event was “the best ever”, every live-set was “the best ever”, and every track that released was “the best ever”. Psytrance seemed to reign supreme this year as the top gun producers and promoters milked its popularity. For the second year in a row I found myself supporting the hard trance genre. There is so much talent

Nov 25, 2016

On August 7th, 2006, Andy Moor’s highly praised, singular vision for two genres crystalized into one record label. It was called AVA Recordings and by the end of that year, the progressive and trance fraternities weren’t talking about much else. ‘Hot’, doesn’t come close to touching it – AVA was lava. With infinite stylistic balance and the zeit-i-est of zeitgeist timing, Andy’s first salvo of A

It’s finally time to sit down and listen to a new Eco album. It’s been quite a few years since his debut album M(you)sic on Armada, and upon hearing track one it is refreshing to hear he has not forgotten who he is at all. “Darkness in the Light” picks up right where past records left off, with guitar tones and swimming ambient textures directing the vibe, with a traditional drumline and some additional pe
