A good rule to live by as a producer is “don’t mess with the classics,” and this is true even if the classic is your own. But rules were made to be broken, and Rank 1 has done just that with a remake of their magnum opus Airwave. It’s easy to assume this will just be your standard big room hash of a classic track, but you’d be very [...]

What happens when you get a Svenson & Gielen track remixed by Menno De Jong? Well, given their track record as legends on the trance scene for a good few decades between them, it would be reasonable to assume some classic-sounding uplifting trance would result. If you throw in the fact that it’s been released on High Contrast recordings, [...]

There’s a voice that’s been haunting me for days on end now, and I have no idea whose it is. Edge Of The World is everything I could ask for in a vocal track, but the voice remains unnamed. The producer is longtime trance virtuoso Dennis Sheperd, who presents this stunningly rich vocal track on High Contrast. Edge of the World is [...]

We’re more familiar with Tangle as one half of Tangle & Mateusz (pictured, Tangle on left), a Denver-based American duo who have had releases this year on Lange Recordings and High Contrast Nu Breed. This time, though, Tangle has struck out on his own in the double release Fracture / Shadow Play, proggy little numbers well-suited to the [...]

Sometimes, genre labels are totally futile. Matthew Nagle drives this point home; his track Effective Immediately somehow straddles the line between electro house and techy prog trance in a way I wasn’t sure I liked or understood—but it’s the absolutely bewildering military march-like sections (you can hear a decidedly drummer boy-esque [...]
Matthew Nagle - Effective Immediately (Original Mix) [High Contrast]
Welsh drum’n’bass prodigy Lincoln Barrett, aka High Contrast, has a reputation in drum’n’bass like no other. He regularly mixes at the famed Fabric nightclub in London, he is frequently tapped to remix huge artists like Adele, and he consistently breaks in to the UK singles charts–a feat not easily accomplished by a d’n’b producer. The [...]
