Various Trance 2001

For fans of straight-up, honest to goodness progressive trance, this is a beautiful compilation featuring artists such as Metal Sparks, Bushwacka, Pablo Gargano and Kodiak. Mixed by Dobbs, an international DJ who has played in the likes of Ibiza, London, Cape Town and Andora, and who is well known for his unique, warped-out blend of trance, breaks, leftfield and progressive house. The concept behind this compilation was to create a fresh and butting-edge selection revealing Dobbs's harder side in featuring the best in progressive club trance, and also to revive the music, gain a new audience and educate as well as entertain. It is a clean and well-defined example of progressive trance in a straightforward and uncomplicated form. Don't think straightforward as in uninteresting, however, it is still a journey that takes some turns, possesses depth and a lot of character. (Nuff)
