Holopgrapic made a lot of fantastic hardtrance/acid under various aliasses, all in the distinct Holoprapic style on the 80 Aum Records label. In 1994 several tracks were released on ID&T/Arcade Thunderdome CD's and two vinyls had been released for ID&T's mainlabel. At their top they featured on the highly appreciated "Mystery Land - The European Dance Festival" CD album with 5 tracks, a live coverage from the Mysteryland 1994 party.
At the end of 1995 Ed & Dave abandoned their Holograpic project and stopped producing their distinct style. In 1995 Ed & Dave's main focus was on producing Happy Hardcore under the Alias Critical Mass and released severall hits on ID&T's sublabel Pengo Records. When Hardcore gabber started to become less populair by the masses in 1997 sales dropped and ID&T discontinued almost all it's (hardcore) sublabels and Pengo Records was one of them. Since then Ed Bout and Dave van Hasselaar we have not seen any releases from them anymore. I really wonder what they would do by now and if they still have a box with their vinyl productions.. I (almost) do :) !!

This is a brilliant group! Holographic aka Critical Mass deliver the one in a kind sound that really marks a person. The word for their style would be trancecore.. they suberbly mix hardtrance/acid with Hardcore and Industrial, giving their tracks a very spacy feeling. Almost like travelling in time and space at once. The music is very good, and well produced, altough it can become repetitive. Some tracks like Hardcore Future and Androgyn were clear references in the Gabber scene back in 1994. Altough the sound could also be of interest to the trance/goa public, this was always a Hardcore act, participating in such legendary events like Mystery Land 1994.
Their releases are quite hard to find nowadays, but if you do find them, buy them, you won't be disappointed.
Unique sound, with unique feeling.
