Listen to Forerunners’ ‘Pure Progressive Vol. 2’ Mix



Solarstone’s Pure Trance movement has played a tremendous role in shaping the trance scene all over the globe today, always ensuring to maintain progressive trance’s roots intact with every release. After leaving listeners in complete and utter awe with ‘Pure Progressive Vol. 1’ roughly two years ago, the renowned Pure Progressive imprint returns with its sophomore rendition of the alluring mix series. 

This time around, the prodigious Black Hole Recordings sub label recruited Brenden LaBonte a.k.a. Forerunners to put together this stunning compilation. Forerunners is no stranger to anyone who is a fan of Solarstone’s wide array of trance-driven labels, and he delivers a breathtaking and sonically beautiful listening experience with this year’s ‘Pure Progressive Vol. 2’ mix.

The Arizona-based musician divides the exemplary two-disc compilation into two uniquely diverse scapes. The first disc, The Artist, focuses solely on Forerunners’ very own sound design and production expertise. The second disc, The DJ, then offers a striking blend of his artistic flair as a DJ rather than as a producer. He mentions that disc two provides him “more freedom to wander around,” but both display the deep, soul-stirring soundscapes that defy what the progressive genre is truly all about in the most alluring manner. 

The first disc features a stellar batch of original Forerunners tracks like “Our Miracles” and “Hazel Eyes,” as well as two brand new re-works of previously released tunes including a unique redux version of Nugen’s “Deliverance” and a melodic remix of Basil O’Glue’s “The Promise.” The second disc opens up with a wondrous, eleven minute mix of Alfoa’s “Headwaters,” followed by a multitude of track selections by other notable label staples like Nick Stoynoff, qoob, Nick Silvestr, and many more. 

For any trance music lovers out there, this is one captivating progressive compilation worth giving a thorough listen. Trust us on this one. If you haven’t given it a listen yet, you’re in for a treat. Get ready to bask in the beauty of Forerunners’ meditative ‘Pure Progressive Vol. 2’ mix, out now on Blackhole Recordings.
