White Light 54 - JD Twitch (Optimo)

“I don’t drive but I spend a lot of my life being driven about late at night which can have quite a transcendental effect. I wanted to reclaim the trance word from years of misuse and bad associations and create a mix of what I term pure trance. I knew right from the start the kind of tracks to look out that would evoke the feeling I get late at night, being driven between cities when the conversation has ceased and everyone in the car is lost in their own thoughts, slightly spaced out.”

    Lovely mix! Obviously it doesn’t sound anything like what’s being called trance these days, but it did remind me a lot of the (mixed) compilation Tranceformed From Beyond (MFS, 1992), which was supposedly the first ever trance album.
