Samuel Andrasik debuts on Bonzai Records with the fantastic, energy driven 'Requiem For A Dream EP'. Based in Prague, Slovakian born Samuel uses the most up-to-date music technology to incorporate that modern day sound into his work while injecting layers of old school flavour for a sense of nostalgia. His artistic vision - driven by emotions, allows him to explore and convey personal or universal feelings through his work. Whether it's joy, melancholy, excitement or introspection, emotions can serve as the driving force behind creative decisions, influencing the textures, compositions and subject matter of artwork. Nonetheless, the result is imbued with a raw and authentic energy, inviting listeners to connect with their own emotions and experiences. The approach of his creative process receives support from artists like Charlotte De Witte and KI/KI, who showcase his production ranging from mighty, gargantuan festivals such as Lowlands, Awakenings, Movement, DGTL or Time Warp to bustling restlessly inside the walls of the underground techno temples including Bassiani, Kompass and Thuishaven to name a few. 'Requiem For A Dream' opens the release and gets right down to business with a thumping kick drum and rolling bass combo. Slicing hats and bright percussive elements enhance the rhythms as a steady 303 line binds the mids and lows beautifully. Hypnotic vox create a dreamy atmosphere while plucky synths bring that harder trance vibe. 'Apollo' is up next and can easily be a track that came out of Bonzai in the 90's hey-day. The epitome of that sound shines here with pounding drums and deep rolling basses at the core of the groove. Chaotic synth arps fade up along with classic vox before those infectious 'ahh' vocals take control. The final act is a truly authentic bubbling acid line that will ignite the dancefloor. 'Phantom' is next, taking us much deeper into the hard arena. Heavy hitting 909's and sharp hats combine as a chunky bassline dominates the low-end. Dark 303 lines sweep through the groove alongside striking vox and haunting voices. A retro gem that does not disappoint. 'Luminar' concludes this banging release with more of that wonderfully nostalgic, yet wholly modern sound. Tight beats and a powerful offbeat bassline are joined by shuffling percussions and atmospheric choir voices. An intriguing spoken vocal leads us to the main event where the choir takes on a melodic sequence, which offers stark contrast to the darker themes. Sporadic acid shots fill out the spectrum, making this a stomper that is not to be missed.

EL-EL stalwart and prince of funeral techno DARKSKYE is back, and just in time for Halloween, with two moody tech-trancers - BUT WE DID SURVIVE and BENEATH THE RAFTERS. The apocalyptically titled 'BUT WE DID SURVIVE' is signature DARKSKYE - pensive techno, with a hauntingly melancholic chord sequence, initially reminiscent of Pearl River, had Jenny Greenteeth and Peg Powler taken up residence. BENEATH THE RAFTERS is pure goth trance, flirting with 'the devils chord' tritone via a lizardy riff, cinematic pads, and cold metronomic drums. We've been digging FACTORIA's style of trance for a while now, so we're delighted to have finally bagged him for a remix. And what a job, smashing it out of the stadium with a no bullshit, heads down trance rework of BUT WE DID SURVIVE, while our big man in the capital and go-to-guy for hard n' hairy trance CLAIRE'S ACCESSORIES turns in a sheet-lightning remix of BENEATH THE RAFTERS. Bats in the belfry, indeed. EL-EL 23

The climax is uplifting trance as it should be done with banging dynamic basslines and hair and hands raising melodies. Tried and tested intensively by Talla 2XLC, the massive classic Black Hill is back on Technoclub Retro.
Throughout his entire professional music career, and even long before that as a listener and a beginner DJ, Roman Messer has always loved and cherished trance music, and especially uplifting trance if he had to pick his one true love. Being the closest thing in Roman's book to the elusive label of 'true trance' if there is one, uplifting trance and closely related sounds always held a special place in the artist's heart. But anyone with more than a couple years of listening to the genre under their belt can attest: trends in trance can change faster than seasons do. There is always a exciting new sound to explore for a producer, or an inspiration from outside the genre that results in something fresh and quirky, there's always room for personal growth as an artist by broadening your production skills, there's always a song idea coming from a vocalist that would work great as a mellow progressive tune... In other words, it can be rather hard - and, one might argue, even detrimental - to pigeonhole yourself into one particular style or sound throughout your entire career. It is no surprise then, and certainly no crime, that Roman Messer's four earlier studio albums covered a very wide spectrum of sound that could broadly be described as modern trance music in general and even some things on its fringes. But the time has finally come to pay a proper tribute to 'the' true trance sound that Roman has always loved. 'For All Time', Roman Messer's brand new fifth studio album, is all about that profound majestic feeling of flight which, arguably, only uplifting trance can give you. What might seem like a career anniversary milestone celebration of some sort - after all, Roman's brainchild Suanda Music turned 10 years old this year, and his professional career as a producer with signed releases is only about a year older than that - is, in fact, a project that's been in the making since long before 2023. Long-time followers undoubtedly took note of Roman's overall focus on uplifting trance lately, and he even reworked some of his biggest progressive anthems into supercharged 'Full Fire' versions over the last few years. Glancing at the album's tracklist, one might notice a couple of tracks that were first presented all the way back in 2020; indeed, every now and then, Roman put a special track or two aside for the uplifting trance album that he had been planning, with work on said album really picking up the pace once the producer fully devoted his studio time to the project. A risky one, perhaps, according to his own admission - after all, the world of trance has plenty of styles and there's always a chance that listeners might prefer more variety on an LP - but a very deliberate one, as Roman felt he was long overdue to pay tribute to the sound that he loves and share this love with his like-minded followers and proselytize the more sceptical ones. Apart from Roman's own solo productions, 'For All Time' sees a fair share of his collaborations with musicians ranging from Roman's own all-time trance idols, like Alex M.O.R.P.H., Emma Hewitt, Roxanne Emery and Christina Novelli, to rising stars that he himself helped grow through his own earlier productions and through his label. Vocalists like Cari, Joe Jury and Diandra Faye saw a surge in their own popularity and demand in the trance scene after working with Roman, while artists like Skyvol and NoMosk are among Roman's favorite producer talents at the moment and are tipped by him to have a very promising future ahead with their excellent sound. Something else that connects Roman's album to the surrounding trance scene is the inclusion of his versions of some of his personal favorite classics throughout the years. The vocal anthems 'Silence' and 'Need To Feel Loved' have always been among Roman's most cherished trance works, and although the producer was initially hesitant to rework them fearing that he wouldn't be able to do them justice, the end results proved very popular with the trance crowd, ending up being some of his most in-demand tracks lately. A self-admitted bold experiment - complete with a fully solo open-to-close club night to celebrate its launch, which isn't done all that often in trance music these days - and a heartfelt love letter to the genre that shaped Roman's own tastes and his music career. Full of sonic adventures through the landscape of modern uplifting trance from start to finish, 'For All Time' is intended to, you guessed it, stand the test of time and remain one of the centerpieces of Roman's discography for years to come.

Brand new Artist Album by Alexander Popov 'Reflected', the third studio longplay, is a new milestone in his career, a look upon himself from the outside, insight into his creative development as a musician, and, sort of a reporting work over the past 5 years since the date of release of his previous album 'Intention'. This album is truly special. It comes out at times of global changes, transformations, both in the world and in the life and career of the artist. Something shifts, something is reinvented, and something is turned upside down and all the emotions, feelings, thoughts, rises and falls that go with it find their reflection in the music. Stylistics of the album, at large, is sustained in the genre that the artist keeps to his whole life - melodic, electronic, dance music, but in a wide variety of shades: from light progressive, at the interface of organic house, to classic uplifting trance with a touch of techno and future rave. It was not without experiments. The final track, 'The One', is a collaborative song with his wife, where the vocals were created and performed by her, and Alexander wrote the text for himself. The album is filled with multiple moods and sentiments, from the cheerful 'Brighter' to melancholic 'In The Rain'. But overall, it is steeped in certain tension, mirroring the world events of recent years. Yet, at the same time, it awakens sincere hope for a better future. This is what Alexander always tries to bring into the world through his music.

We are incredibly honored and proud to have one of techno's most influential and iconic artists on VII. CJ Bolland was the one artist that inspired John Askew more than any other in the early to mid 90s as John was falling in love with electronic music. His 1994 album The 4th Sign on R&S records is still John's favorite electronic album of all time and so when CJ agreed to let us release this remix of his seminal hit There Can Be Only One... we were beyond thrilled. Here it is people, the one a lot of you have been asking for for since the end of the pandemic... this is the brilliant John Askew remix of CJ Bolland's There Can Be Only One. Boom!

It was almost inevitable that growing up with a love for trance would eventually result in Trance Wax releasing his own interpretations of the sound. Following on from the release of his eponymous album in 2020, Trance Wax now shifts into a fresh artistic chapter with his sophomore album, 'Open Up The Night'. A sixteen-track journey through nostalgia-infused modern trance, 'Open Up The Night' symbolizes Trance Wax's evolution from his early days of adapting trance classics for the modern dance floor. Now homing in on his own interpretation of the genre with an increase in tempo, the Belfast-born DJ and producer created an expansive sonic palette through original productions ('Adeya', 'Aslan') as well as sample-powered productions ('Open Up The Night', 'Rhythm Of The Night') that show he means business in this increasingly popular genre. "Listeners can expect a switch-up in BPM compared with the last album," says Garry McCartney (Trance Wax). "It's a reflection of what I love listening to, be it trance or other genres. There's some drum and bass influences woven in as well as a bit of breakbeat, which adds a new dimension to the whole thing. It's the product of a good few years of experimentation that resulted in something really fast and exciting."

Keeping the train on the rails as we head ever further into an uncertain future, TT4 comes with another six tracks, once again gaily stretching the genre term to it's meaningful limits, mixing up new with old, fast with slow, deeper stuff with bangers. Ton TB (half of Three Drives / Greece 2000) opens proceedings with a rushy, linear, late night stomper 'Hurt You', before an OG progressive friend (first whites appeared in 92'... we signed it in 94/5' ) Frontier Man returns with a spritely hypno-tech rework from fellow, erm, man, Australian post lo-fi swashbuckler Fantastic Man. Talking of old friends, CM's 'Dream Universe' always occupied a slightly unique position within the Hooj Pantheon: as we've mentioned before, in his 1998 review of the track, DJ Mag's Ronnie Randall wrote that this was "a proper journey... but maybe all the journey's have been made now?", and we knew he was right, as far as we were feeling it... we never signed another trancer to Hooj, and never looked back (last bit = patently untrue, obvs). In early summer, Irish heavyweight Ciaran McAuley took the 2021 HEO electronic/orchestral cover and added a swathe of gleaming Emerald Isle energy, to create a fizzing, no frills peak-timer for his own sets, before passing on for our admiring gaze. Making a swift return after TT3 , Glenn Morrison has ratcheted up his and Aaya's own 'Twenty Something' into the propulsive neo psy-banger it was always meant to be, whilst welcome newcomer to the the label Jay Farina, fresh from a spring Hot Creations debut, dial things down a bit with the rolling, zoned in Balearica of 'Supernova'. Another TT3 veteran, Hansgod, rounds thing off on an altogether gentler note, as Heya bumps and builds into a hazy, MFA reminiscent throbber.

The Tablets of Thoth is the album to help you get there! www.hyperrealityrecords.nl
Amidst the resounding echoes of the Rave The Planet parade, the official anthem receives a spellbinding transformation by the visionary talents of Peter Pahn (Drumcode, Codex, Terminal M) and Mark Reeve (Drumcode, Afterlife, Cocoon, Soma). Join us as we keep the euphoric momentum alive! Pahn's reimagining propels the anthem to cosmic dimensions. The melding of the 'marching and driving' sounds creates a sonic journey that resonates with Rave The Planet's ethos. A supreme 'peak time' remix. Mark Reeve seamlessly blends the original anthem's vocals with his signature futuristic electro-bassline and big synths creating a greater soundscape. The result is a magnificent rework that embodies the thrill of the recent parade and its essence of unity. All proceeds from the sales and streamings of this release go directly into Rave The Planet's non-profit aims: to protect techno culture as UNESCO Intangible Heritage and to keep up the spirit of the Berlin Love Parade with the big Rave The Planet demonstration in Berlin.
Activa brings his first solo release to VII. A brilliant record that clearly draws influence from the golden era of early 00's trance.

We're thrilled to have Activa now be a part of VII and we can't wait for his first ever live performance at VII London on November 25th when we take over the amazing E1 warehouse in London.
Fables celebrates a huge milestone with 100 releases! For this special occasion label boss Ferry Tayle teams up with Airwave to bring back the 'Cape Town' alias. 'Tears of Jupiter' will take you on a nostalgic journey!
Anssi Hohti is probably Finland's most under-rated producer, with +40 single releases over the past decade every trance fan knows what he sounds like, but aside from that he is something of an enigma - which makes us focus more closely on the music itself. This is his 15th release with the ILikeItPure label family, and as with every Allende release it is noteworthy and deserves attention. An earthy, ambitious release indeed, taking its inspiration from the early Platipus days. Horizon Painter is an authentic musical 'journey', one you can really get inside and surrender to, immersing in its beautiful chord progressions and intricacies.
Rene Ablaze is back at it with his new chart breaker, Aestas Baleares! As trancey as they come, this track is sure to put you in a state of pure nostalgia.

Grant Trowbridge graces us for his second appearance for 2023, with a 2 track EP entitled Destinations. Both tracks are solid and unrepentant in the style that we are becoming accustomed to when we see Grant's name. 140 bpm, more modern sounding trance, but still have that underlying element that sets his music apart from the other releases at this time. You can go Balearic, or East coast US, or splash out and go both. You decide!
