This is a repress from the original product with a new inverted sleeve. All copies are numbered with a total of 500 copies. We do not guarantee a specific number, we only offer 50 copies in pre-order when the re-press becomes available in a few weeks. This does not guarantee you one of the first 50 numbers. There was confusion with the initial release where people thought they’d buy one of the first 50 numbers while we clearly communicated we only offered 50 copies in pre-order, no more, no less, just like we’re doing below!!!
We continue 2020 (our 28th year!) with a special 10” vinyl which houses two outstanding classics. Innertales’ Odyssee and Oudja’s Amazone get the wax treatment this time round and we’ve no doubt this will be a popular release.
The late, great Philippe Van Mullem aka Quadran was the man behind Innertales, this project was a much deeper concept than his previous and latter outputs which revealed another layer to this guy’s talent. Responsible for putting us on course in the progressive trance scene, Philippe has left behind an unparalleled legacy, and while he may no longer be with us, that legacy remains strong. Odyssee, originally a B-side on Innertales – Part Two (Hard Times Recordings) takes us on a surreal, emotional, melodic fuelled trance journey. Soft notes are encapsulated by striking pads and gentle arpeggios. A solid bassline ties the track together while a tight drum arrangement keeps the groove flowing.
On the flip we find Oudja aka Gregory Dewindt and his superb Amazone which also started life on Hard Times Recordings as a B-side to Opium. The track was picked up on Bonzai Trance Progressive some years later and became an instant hit with a few remixes thrown in. Gregory is responsible for a whole raft of releases for us across many labels and sub-labels. Blue Alphabet, Cyclop, Jaga, Limited Growth and for a time, Phrenetic System are just a few of the projects he was involved in. He certainly contributed to shaping the Bonzai sound. Amazone typifies the era, with quality and style oozing from the track. A strong, heavy kick drum opens the track before classic breaks style percussions come through. That mesmerizing main hook takes over along with the infectious bassline, sending the floors into a frenzy. The track builds to a symphony of violins before coming back down, leaving us wanting more.
