4.0 out of 5 stars It's Trance but not hard trance, 20 July 2002

This review is from: Nukleuz Presents Hard Trance (Audio CD)
Nukleuz have teamed up with Tillman Uhrmacher and the Disco Brothers to bring us a double CD showcasing the 'underground anthems and future hits' of this burgeoning scene. So step up Tillmann for Disc 1 - now perhaps it's me being cynical, perhaps I'm getting jaded but in my opinion tracks like CRW's Like a Cat, Tiesto's 634 and KMC's I Feel so Fine are hardly genre defining hard trance classics. While there are undoubtedly some hidden gems including the awesome Jetlag by DJ Kim and Mr Corsten's intense Punk, Tillmann's incestuous offering seems to consist almost entirely of Nukleuz releases or his own productions/remixes, and never seems to build the required atmosphere.
Rising stars the Disco Brothers, currently in the spotlight with their belter, Final Frontier, fare a little better. Tracks like Marco V's Stimulated, BK's Revolution and the Organ Donors'99.9 add a tougher edge, while Rank 1 and the unsurpassable brilliance of Nebuchan by Frank Trax keep proceedings euphoric. This double CD has some great tracks, but is let down by the misleading title. It felt like getting an album in the post claiming to have the best trance tunes I'd ever hear, before kicking off proceedings with Flip and Fill. It's definitely worth a gander for DJ Kim, Rank 1 and Frank Trax if you don't have them already but perhaps if Nukleuz had simply called it 'Trance' it would not have irked me so greatly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nukleuz back on track!, 20 Jun 2002
This review is from: Nukleuz Presents Hard Trance (Audio CD)
I was dubious to say the least when i picked up my copy of "Nukleuz presents hard trance". The label's last efforts with the likes of "Hardhouse Anthems 2002" and "Big room DJ's 2", were, to me very dissapointing! It's very pleasing though to see that they have improved the standard of their albumns no end with this release!
Hard trance seems to be all the rage recently, with the great success of both the "Frantic" CD's. Nukleus have gone one step further though and recruited the internationally acclaimed DJ Tillman Uhrmacher to mix CD1. He certainly delivers, with a handfull of his own exclusive remixes (bringing in his own contemporary style to classics such as "Mauro Picotto - Pulsar" and "CRW - Like a cat")
The albumn is certainly worth getting your hands on...despite what you may currently think of the "Nukleuz" label! They have redeemed theirselves with this little beauty! There is smooth mixing, skillfully mixing in regular trance with choons just that little bit harder!
Thumbs up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Er... Right... What is hard trance anyway?, 8 Oct 2002

This review is from: Nukleuz Presents Hard Trance (Audio CD)
Now, hard trance. Maybe I'm an idiot, but hard trance to me isn't just any trance that is slightly faster than mainstream c**p such as Flip and Fill or Lasgo. This CD offers just that. It isn't Ministry of Sound style cheese which is no bad thing, but it isn't that hard.
Tillman Uhrmacher is in charge of the first CD. He has crammed it full of his own remixes of tracks such as Pulsar and Like a Cat, bringing his unique style to these tracks. The remix of Like a Cat is very good, mixing uplifting paino melody with a synth line and dreamy vocal.
Other notable tracks include Drifting and Black Magic which have Darren Styles' slightly harder style to spice things up. Ferry Corsten's excellent Punk is well remixed by Cosmic Gate, who strangely fail to impress with their own track. CRW end the CD with I Feel Love which reacher No. 3 way back in the big 2000.
The Disco Brothers do better with their CD. Frank Trax, Marco V and Rank 1 have brilliant tracks, while Take Off by Darren Styles and Disco Brothers is the whole album's high-light. Recommended. Ransom add some feel-good uplifting trance with a great Ferry Corsten remix.
All in all its a good album, but not very hard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime., 16 Jun 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Nukleuz Presents Hard Trance (Audio CD)
This the latest offering from the nations biggest commercial hard dance label promises to be even better than the hard house anthems series. The double CD contains some of the biggest tracks which are destroying the nations dancefloors at the moment. The Cds include BK's awesome Revolution, Ferry Corsten's punk and the Alpha Zone remix of Jetlag. One not to be missed.
