Leading on from early releases on Ajunabeats, Dutch duo 16 Bit Lolitas have since moved across to the equally colossal home country Armada camp, both for management and their own label Bits & Pieces. This collection of 10 full length tracks, Is the perfect introduction to the label and their unique progressive sound made famous by tracks like 'Nobody Seems To Care'. Although all on offer here is wicked, it's 'Goodbye Voodoo', 'Bless You' featuring The Funky Bastard, and 'Baby You', which all jump out to us.. Get stuck in this little lot.

We are big fans of the all the RecoverWorld labels and even more so of the Discover 'Trance Pioneers' compilation series, and following on from Thomas Datt and Greg Downey is one of the most important producers in UK trance Activa. The PvD and Armin favorite here showcases some of his biggest singles and collaborations across 20 tracks. Just a few of the many highlights for us include; 'Sniper', 'My Way Out', and 'The World'. Plus massive the massive collab with Giuseppe Ottaviani on 'Long Way Back', and might remixes on 'One Again' from Greg Downey and Bryan Kearney's 'You Will Never Be Forgotten'. This is a definitive collection of all that is good about trance music.
