Future Disciple a.k.a. Daniel James firmly established himself as one of the most exciting and innovative artists on the trance scene over the past 12 months, with a clutch of huge remixes for Federation, Perfecto Fluoro and Solarstone. His sound fuses hard-hitting techno inspired grooves and massive synth riffs with an eastern flourish, and 'No Man's Land' (gleaned from 'Pure Trance Vol. 1) is a master-class in how to rock a dance floor. The Original Mix is a powerful representation of those hallmarks, with a euphoric layer of pads, vocal samples and even manages to make a trumpet sound cool! James Alexander & Scott Lowe opt for a driving, melodic Pure Trance sound, fusing elements of the Original Mix with some neat sequencer lines and a lead synth/arpeggio combination which provides the eyes-closed moment at the breakdown. Powerful stuff.
