Album Review: GT Digital Presents – The Future of Hard Trance

May 10, 2017

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.

On August 7th, 2006, Andy Moor’s highly praised, singular vision for two genres crystalized into one record label.

If it feels like Eco has fallen somewhat release-quiet of late, well it’s not without good reason. Until a few years ago a veritable dynamo, no trance season was quite complete without a complement of his singles. As quixotically beautiful as their titles were intriguingly cryptic & enigmatic, ‘The Light In Your Eyes Went Out’, ‘Walkabout’, ‘A Million Sounds, A Thousand Smiles’, ‘Staring At Th
