If there's one thing I have to say about Colin Benun's mastering works is: AMATEUR! .
Getting his "Mastering" services, means paying money to trash your audio and release - simply as that!

While Mastering is essential process since each track sounds different, with volume differences, dissonant frequency etc. it is also a very gentle process: If it doesn't being done properly, the audio is trashed for good. There is no Expander that open back the audio dynamics as they used to be and algorithm that can bring back the lost information of cut or over-compressed peaks. The sound is painful and tiring even in low volume and on big P.A. systems - a disaster!

I have noted Draeke and the crew about this several times while we were working on this project. I even gave the technical and professional information that demonstrates clearly why this over-over-over compression of +12dBfs is BAD for any audio recording, but no-one listened/read this, because - "Hey - That's Colin Benun of OOOD"... and now that I read his comment again, I see that there's still no one to talk to. He still has no idea of what he's talking about in regards to Mastering (and also maybe his hearing has gone bye-bye, after too many Raves...)

If you unable to hear the problems or at least understand the reason, then let someone who does (it's better to be someone who works with different types of music and done some time doing live-shows as well). Focus in what you awesome at - label managing, releases-production, marketing and distribution.
Otherwise, release after release - ruined!

DRAEKE, GIZ, JOS, SOLI etc. - WAKE UP, GUYS!!

I have always been a huge fan of the track X-3 by Gangguru. Heavy bass, ominous sounds, and bright spiraling melodies combine to create a unique, dark, and magical track that stands out to me as a gem in the genre of goa trance.

Knowing DAT Records' propensity for poor remastering (and commenting on it multiple times on their previous releases), I was curious what they would do to this track. The results are as I feared: DAT Records are still compressing their tracks and playing the "loudness" game.

The original 12" release of X-3 had a powerful bass and wider dynamic range; there were quieter sounds that were in the background, giving the track more depth, atmosphere, refinement and focus. In the remastering here, the bass has been greatly reduced. At a modest listening volume, the bass seems almost non-existent (using reference speakers). Those sounds that used to be in the background are now much more in the foreground, giving it a brighter tone. All sounds are now of similar volume.

I can only theorize about why some people, such as the owner of DAT Records, consider this sort of mastering an improvement, or "more modern" as they sometimes say. My guess is that perhaps they think it's more "psychedelic" to have all the sounds loud and in-your-face. Whatever it is, it's unfortunate for those of us who do not enjoy this effect and don't want to feel like victims of a psychedelic assault while listening to music. As is well known, this effect causes listening fatigue for many people, and headaches.

Sadly, for tracks unreleased in the 90's, this is the best we might get. We might never get to hear them in their original glory. I think I would personally prefer an option to purchase the unmastered original tracks instead of the remastered versions.
