composition,’Liquor, Areea rounds of the first quarter with this scorching progressive trance

‘She’ which is sung in both Japanese and English, we break it up with Cullen’s progressive breaks
creation, ‘Digital Emotions’, and we drop this epic club oriented masterpiece from Dmitry Aeolus,

uplifting and angelic like musical production, ‘Never Be The Same’ from Indonesian electronic music

from UK producer, Jay Hubbard.
The final quarter will stimulate your aural senses with Kesuke Hara’s mellifluent jewel, ‘Kinugasa’,
this tracks flows with lush beautiful chords and exotic Junanagen plucks, very ‘Kawaii’ like in nature
which means lovable, cute or adorable in Japanese, then we bring you this classic progressive styled
master work, ‘Vicious Circles’ from PD resident, Lesh, and finally the last track in this compilation,
winds down with this 80’s Italo Disco inspired melodious original,’Sheers’, which is a collaborative
