REVIEW: Perry O'Neil - Afterwards / The Secret out on Statement! recordings

Undoubtedly remembered by those who reminisce about the early days of Trance music with a grand smile, Perry O'Neil gives extra meaning to the word timeless. Back with a double dose of progressive to really get the crowd going, the Dutchman has set out to strengthen his legacy even further, enticing you to listen to these insane cuts. 'Afterwards', you'll know his 'Secret' to longevity.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Perry O'Neil is one of the most talented producers with fantastic tracks under his belt. The legend is back on Statement recordings and his music sounds fresh and suitable for Statement ethos and style.  Afterwards is a deep melodic progressive trancer with progressive house ingredients with smooth understated synths, moody strings, melodramatic effects, hypnotic atmosphere, and long breakdown with teasing melody that lead to the second part that continues moody and haunting with little melodic  themes. The Secret is a melodic dreamy progressive trancer with strong progressive house presence. Warm, smooth, floating and spacey with sparkling synths that glow in the night makes this track a real winner with a secret that nobody can reveal yet. #PureGold Love It[/content]
