LT3 favorite Eco has always had a reputation for producing trance that’s just a little bit offbeat of the norm, drawing from cross-genre influences all over the place and melding them into something uniquely his own.

Even though his name is oft-cited among lists of major trance pioneers, it still kind of comes as a surprise whenever Paul Oakenfold starts showing his trance roots.
