Various : The Trance Box

Budget trance/hard house...

Budget trance/hard house mixed into ‘Uplifting’, ‘Full On’ and ‘Classics’ discs. 39 tracks that build up, break down… and do it all over again.

Necessary or evil? Less sniptastic alongside ‘The Club Box’, as both tracklistings share similarities. You can’t envisage image-conscious ‘Crasher kids caring, but for new converts to trance’s melodramatic pleasures, it handily amasses gems like Salt Tank’s ‘Eugina’ and Mauro Picotto’s rampant ‘Iguana’.
