One of the oldest traditions in DJ culture, mixtapes have given listeners a consistent window into the musical thought process of countless of the planet’s top electronic artists. Super8 & Tab are continuing this tradition with their new compilation album, “Past, Present & Future”. As you might pick up from the title, the album reflects the Finnish duo’s classics, current releases, and fresh projects that hint at where their sound is going moving forward. The Trance legends further explain the concept of “Past, Present & Future”.
“Whenever we play out in the clubs or at festivals, fans always ask us to play tracks from across our whole back catalogue, not just the latest hits. There are so many trance tracks that still have just as much of an impact today as they did when they were first released, and we don’t feel DJs should be limited to only playing what’s out right now. For us, that ignores truly incredible music. With ‘Past, Present & Future’ we’re taking our fans on a deep journey through trance, with originals from years ago, our own remixed versions of some of those tracks, singles that are on release right now and also new music that people won’t have heard but that we feel is strong enough to stand in our set list. It’s very much what people can expect from us when they come to see our shows out on tour.”
The track selection for “Past, Present & Future” makes for a beautiful time-traveling journey. Cosmic Gate’s remix of ilan Bluestone and Giuseppe De Luca’s “Frozen Ground”, Graham Bell’s “The Night King”, and Super8 & Tab’s 2019 remix of their own classic “Helsinki Scorchin’” are just some examples from this compilation. Overall, this compilation is perfect spread of energy levels, vocal talent and melodies make for a mix that all Trance fans will love.
