Future Trance 61 review

Future Trance is the most hyped up EDM compilation series yet, and I have a quick review for you!

First of all I will tell you a backgrounder on it. It's been going on since 1997, yes, that long, and started out as an underground trance compilation. The songs were very different then what appears on any EDM compilations today.

Now throught the years it started to get more and more mainstream, as it started to include styles like Hands-Up, House, and some electro. It did a good mix until about volume 49, and then from there started to get more and more house tracks. Fans on euroadrenaline.com were pretty furious about the new direction the series was trekking and had several forum posts about that and just about every volume a certain user by the name of trackhacker would tear the series to shreds.

Now this volume pretty much changed a lot and seemed to go back to it's roots.... sort of.... I'd say it's back around the late 30s vols and early 40s vols feel and that was pretty good. Some tracks kinda remind me of the 20s volumes.

Anyways I will present the tracks I like out of this.

I will also write reviews for the rest of the series like this as well. So far I think FT is prolly gonna do much better if they keep this up. I have a few suggestions:

1) make hands-up disc 1
2) make trance disc 2 and only trance
3) keep disc 3 as a mix disc

4) increase the dreamy trance tracks for disc 2
5) make the mix disc have hands-up first, then blend into dark trance, then go back to hands-up.

So there you have it...
