<Progressive Trance> For those of us who just can’t get enough of that lovey-dovey stuff, disco prog giant Neelix brings you a glam new installment in the form of a remix album. Henrik Twardzik and friends have reinterpreted some of his former material, each track baring its own stylistically unique imprint characteristic of the artist. If you haven’t already experienced the bright, bubbly and very acoustic sound of Neelix you probably haven’t heard much dance music. For those who have, the musical framework remains the same rigid 2-step groove with an assault of rhythmical sample stabs, while the pads and melodies make your eyeballs roll back in their sockets. This new wave of progressive psytrance has been a resounding success worldwide with it’s utterly infectious and uber catchy sound. A word of warning: these tracks will continue playing incessantly in your head weeks after you’ve left the party.
