WHAT YOUR EARS SAY & THE COVER LOOKS LIKE
WHAT WE SAY
Trance was arguably the first shoots of the money driven EDM house music implosion & a big step towards the whitification of the genre. I wasn't thinking that way at the time but still never liked it. I also never imagined I'd be recommending a trance compilation through this site but fair play, Safe Trip has done the digging again & unearthed a killer collection of summer of love spirited gems from the genre's early years.
WHAT THE RELEASE NOTES SAY
Having previously celebrated the deep and colourful world of late ‘80s and early ‘80s Italian house via the popular Welcome To Paradise compilation series, Safe Trip has now turned its attention to the roots and formative years of trance music.
Planet Love: Early Transmissions 1991-95 showcases the roots and formative years of trance via 13 loved-up, psychedelic, colourful, melodious and surprisingly varied dancefloor experiments from Europe, Australia and the United States.
The compilation includes pioneering proto-trance and early trance tracks from the likes of Hawke (AKA influential San Francisco producer Gavin Hardkiss), Epilson 9, Spooky, Oliver Lieb, Holy Ghost Inc, Morgan Wild (an outfit whose members included early NYC techno titan Damon Wild), Mijk van Dijk, Glam and Paul van Dyk.
Packed with must-have cuts, slept-on gems and sought-after rarities, Planet Love: Early Transmissions 1991-95 maintains the loved-up, listenable vibe of Welcome to Paradise while broadening its musical horizons. It is not a definitive history of trance music’s early years, but rather a colourful, life-affirming celebration of the varied strands that came together to create one of dance music’s most popular and enduring styles.
