If you’ve been into uplifting trance for a while, you’ll know that it’s the veterans who do it best. Steve Helstrip has been around for over 15 years and you can always guarantee his work as The Thrillseekers will bring something special, and his latest release This Is All We Have is probably his most special yet.
Before you get into the meat and bones of the track, it’s instantly apparent this is a track built by one of the pros. There are a lot of very reputable newcomers to the uplifting trance scene, but with someone like Steve, there’s something familiar yet exciting; old-school yet modern. There’s the usual big break, faultless sound design and a massive drop, making This Is All We Have a stand-out track on its own–and a potential future classic. But when you learn that it was written as a tribute to Steve’s father Robin, it really hits you that true passion and emotion are what lie at the heart of trance music, and if this is all we have, then long may it continue.
