A bunch of middle aged blokes arguing on social media about whether their favoured brand of synthy euro dance is the true inheritor of the 'trance' tradition is a fine and dignified thing to behold, and after a recent Calvin Harris / Ellie Goulding Facebook free for all, Hooj is happy to try and add a bit of fuel to any remaining fire, via the latest instalment in our Trance Trax series.

It's a hefty 6 tracker this time, four new, two remixes of oldies, and none of it likely to help anyone looking for cohesive genre definitions.

Fort Romeau's unreleased dub of Lazonby's 'Sacred Cycles' is pulsing hypno house, Glenn Morrison's 'Twenty Something' a 118 bpm psy-chugger. Belgian ledge Jaydee's 'Black Book' is an immersive, drum heavy work out; Hansgod's 'Altension' a deep, filtering, techy affair. New comer Snubbelrisk's (Swedish : 'fear of falling' ) 'Snowfield' get's unabashedly expansive in it's own way, via emotive pads and soaring riffs, (but minus the whiff of iPhones in the air /_250k Vegas EDM gig fees). Finally, set closer Ben Gomori's remix of 'Love Stimulation' arguably owes as much to trances' (partial) roots in Italo Disco, as it does to the foundational early 90's MFS output from whence it came.
