The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
It’s fair to say that today’s ‘mainstream’ progressive trance is quite a bit different from its 90s form. Not only have the tracks been considerably shortened, but the key component of what made this style great has slowly but surely faded into the background. With that in mind, let’s take a look at a stunning prog arrangement from back in the golden era.
Put together by Nick Muir and John Digweed, better known to you and me as Bedrock, the A side of this 1997 Stress Records release featured Set In Stone (nice little pun there), a beautiful 11 minute slice of prog trance. The great variety of synth work and FX control combine to ensure a satisfying auditory experience from beginning to end, one that oozes of quality and class. The final touch manifests itself in the track’s second breakdown, with its fun, arcade-like vibe capping off this tremendous piece.
Until next week, here’s Bedrock with Set In Stone:
