FYI. In old screens/monitors with calculator-style symbols the capital letter "B" is written the same way as the number "8".
This clarifies the track title, which can lead us to initial meaning of "808 kilometer", instead of strange "bob".
The number ... See full review

"Revenge" is that kind of techno, that perfectly fits any techno set as well as any adult trance set. Its deep pumping bassline combined with smooth but energetic acid line delivers you a headshaking dancefloor workout experience.

Disappointment.

That hard groove and floor spirit of the original Octopus is absent in this remix set release. Only maybe excepting Perfect Stranger remix- which is made without any creativity, but only by altering old original synths by corresponding ... See full review

The track reminds me of good old days back in 2000-ies, when James Holden produced deep catchy trance innovations. Well, that feeling again has reached me after John 00 Fleming put this wonderful track in his DJ playlist.

Может, данный хардрок и годный, но дудок-жалеек и прочих медведей с балалайками (т.е. то, за что мы так любим наши березки с тяжолыми гитарками) почти нет. Причина: либо санкции, либо коммерция, либо кризис.

The whole thing is not about Yves Deruyter and L-Vee as co-producer at all. They just earned some cash on the obvious commercial thing - to lay that highly emotional epic breakdown of the Underworld's 'Born Slippy' track (1995) upon some standard trance ... See full review

Light and lazy afternoon trance, close to ibiza-progressive and deep house. The lightest thing ever produced by the Platipus Masters. Even smooth and lazy '1996 Golden Rain and Kaleidoscope sound more emotional / energetic.

The release is what I've been looking for for ages. Again Trance after 10 years of silence is taking you on a journey. Yet another journey.

The sound is shifted from today's epic-divas-lalala tones to the bass. The groove can be compared to pumping ... See full review

This is definitely the music for some young skaters/b-boyz jamming. Easy melodic layers upon electro-breax, 2-step DNB etc, with a hint of progressive sound, featuring some ragga vocals and other easy-to-catch stuff. But somehow it's catchy

Very interesting mainstream track.

On one hand it is that kind of modern commercial progressive trance burdened with standard bassline & synths, like the most of Anjuna, Armada etc releases.

Original - it's that rare (I hope) kind of progressive house, that can easily be mixed with another house, being just "house" for me - I mean deep or another multi-layered one (which I'm not keen on).
