What an amazing way to announce yourself. James Holden really did hit the ground running with this debut release. In particular it is noticeable that he had already developed a signature beat and production for his music.

‘Horizons’ is the more famous of the two tracks here. It features tight punchy beats that lie somewhere between progressive and proper trance. A variety of progressive style percussion is employed, but the track is driven along by trancey new age / cosmic keys. Being so hypnotic and intelligent, this track will appeal equally to progressive and trance lovers.

‘Pacific’ is probably the less distinctive of the two, although possibly displays shades of a Harthouse influence, particularly tunes like ‘Skyline’ (Eternal Basement) by Resistance D. Again, the feel is cosmic.

Certainly one of the best crafted progressive trance packages to be released in the new millennium.

An real gem and perennial set opener of mine. Both sides are gentle sinuous trance with stunning arpeggiations and crisp production. Pacific especially is not cheesy or overwhelming, subtle enough in its progression to almost be considered ambient. James Holden or Silver Planet haven't even come close to topping this one since.
