After a brief break in the schedules to make space for Substanced’s epic Futureform album, we are back and firing on all cylinders as another Finnish producer drops his debut EP upon us. DJ Neon might be a new name to Stamina but will be a familiar face to anyone with an ear to the ground of Finland’s hard dance scene. A regular DJ at most major Finnish events for nearly 2 decades, and well-known for his German-inspired hard trance productions, here he ramps up the tempo to freeform levels with the epic anthem ‘Tribute’ the devastating result. A tribute in name as well as in nature, Neon’s roots shine through on the Yang side as blistering riffs and binary choir voices pepper the production, giving a distinct nod to the harder european trance sounds of the 90s. Dropping the tempo ever-so-slightly and kicking off the EP it’s an overdue and welcome return to label-boss A.B, whose remix drops more than a tribute or two to some of his own personal production heroes – something for the easter-egg hunters amongst you to get stuck in to!
