With the time their studio grew bigger and bigger, and also their production standards and mixing skills. They decided to create a small enterprise and start producing on a more professional level. Their first official release was "Overload" in 1996. After having released some progressive stuff on various labels till 1999, they decided to give their sound a more trancy, melodic feel in 2000. Finally the remix of DJ Kim's "Jetlag" in 2001 -which was a smashing floorburner all across europe- was the initial success for their continuous work: the Alphazone sound was born.
In Spring 2002 they released their first Alphazone vinyl "Stay" on Waterworld Records in Germany. With a rolling baseline, a bumping kick, tremendous acid feel and an exstatic synth hook they created a huge anthem, often played and well known in the entire hardtrance scene. Between, "Alphazone" remixed projects like Ian Van Dahl, Kira, Dave Joy, Jay Walker and BK. While these singles already took their place in record-cases of many international dj stars, Alphazone kept working in the studio, because there were still many big things to come in 2003. In April they released "Saltwater - The Legacy" (together with the producers of Norman Bass), which had a much trancier approach then the other Alphazone mixes, but nevertheless got impressive support from all the bigh trance jocks like Tiesto, Ferry and Gielen. Some weeks later they released their Alphazone follow-up single "Rockin" on Waterworld Records. Including an ingenious Mat Silver & Tony Burt Remix, which received highest reviews everywhere, this single took of the roof from every club around. In summer 2003 Arne and Alex moved with their studio to a new location and they had to spend the coming months to get everything working again. Back on the track in August 2003, the hardtrance community saw a successful release of the latest DJ Kim single “Time And Space” with an Alphazone Mix on the a-side.
Everything started with the idea: On the hunt for a new crowd pleasing trance experience the producers of Alphazone thought, that it must be possible to use some progressive elements in otherwise melodic euro trance productions. They combined slammin' hard drums, racing rhythms and pushing acid lines with uplifiting melodies and tremendous breakdowns and buildups to create their own definition of high energy trance.
