Lab4, synonymous with the higher bpms and taking harder-trance sounds to the masses, have taken their electric live performances to all corners of the globe for what is now, three decades. Following the last EP output ‘CTRL AL DESTROY’ from two years back Les Elston is back on Hard Trance Europe with 5 fresh Lab4 productions that should adequately excite the global fanbase. From mainstream Trance influences to experimental sonic sample editing, and relentless energy of course at every opportunity. It’s an impressive product. DMC prizes go to ‘In Heaven With You’ for a winning vocal excursion, and the sensory explosion of lead track ‘StarGate’, but there really is a track here for everyone, providing, of course, you are accustomed to ballsy Trance music.
