    The music continues to amaze me! I’ve been listening for 20 years now and most people can’t believe how much enjoyment I get out of the genre!

    Not necessarily trance, but I have adopted a bit of a liking for techier sets this year gone – EG Charlotte De Witte. I’m pretty sure some of the sets sound the same for the entire duration, but I just seem to enjoy them lol.

    Who Should We Be Following in 2019? –
    Interstellar for sure

  3. Thanks alot, happy new year for you too Kris! Hope you are doing fine 🙂 great idea, missing the old interaction with the forum.havent had Interstellar on my radar, thanks for the recommendation. Just to be clear:Interstellar = Half of Neptune Project + The Noble Six ?

    • I also miss it, but when we last tried forums there wasn’t enough interaction. People prefer facebook (etc) these days I guess.

      Interstellar are indeed who you said. I think they combine well and can’t wait for some actual releases to come out!
      Similarly, I quite like Key4050… (JOC + Kearney)…. no releases from them yet? 🙂
