Review: Now in the game for well over a decade Germany's DJ Shog has achieved the tough task of staying relevant, having journeyed through classic's like 'This Is My Sound' (a UK top 40 record), and 'Another World', all the way through to more recent and credible productions like this on High Contrast. 'ComeBack' is as epic and solid as his sound always has been, soaring melodies and a warm bubbling bottom end giving it so much depth. The winning remix here comes from Dennis Sheperd, although there's no real reason to look past the Original.
Review: Drizzly Records out of Germany has been one of the most important in the harder ends of trance for the best part of a decade, crafting a unique sound which others followed and introducing now infamous talent on the scene.
