Signum Tribute Mix (2023)
Signum. Ever heard of this name? You must have, as a) you are reading this review and b) who doesn't know his name? This well known and much loved Dutch Trance producer shot to fame back in the late 90s, and is still very strong in the scene. For most people, they became aware of Signum's importance back in the 90s, when two of the biggest dance tunes ever were released: 'What Ya Got For Me' and 'Coming On Strong'. Those were certainly the two tracks that made me aware of Signum and the power he has as a producer.
Those tracks are certainly dancefloor smashers, even 24-25 years since their release. They are literally everywhere. Name an event, and my guess is that these two tracks are played at least once. They are timeless classics, but certainly not the only tracks Signum has ever made. Hell, his discography is quite impressive, and after finding this appreciation/tribute mix, it has shown me that Signum's biggest tracks aren't the only records that have stood the test of time.
Someone by the name of Sam Garlick has made this tribute mix, to show his appreciation for Signum's music. I've been following Sam for a while now, and have listened to previous mixes he has done, but I thought the most recent mix deserves a review. Or maybe I was too damn lazy to do it for any of the other mixes he has done. And he's done a few you might be interested in.
For now, let's focus on Signum's records used in this mix. You ready for the tracklist?

As a avid Trance lover, I do know all these records. Yes, Signum has played a huge part in my quest for Trance music during the Millennium years. He's been a force to reckon with.
This has been nearly 2 hours of Trance heaven. Sam's mix contains the finest Signum tracks, and it's a solid appreciation mix, showcasing his love for the producer we all know, and admire: Signum. Even though it's got the most overrated Trance anthem in this mix (be it a remix by Signum), it is still a solid mix.
The track I'm talking about is '9PM (Till I Come)'. I truly dislike this record. Radio overkill, that's the root cause of it all.
I am really loving the vibes that come at me through my speakers. The records are all solid (beside 9PM, just can't stand that record), and it takes me back to the golden years of Trance music. Especially my favourite record in this mix, which isn't 'Coming On Strong' or 'What Ya Got For Me'. It is... drum roll... 'Second Wave'. Heard it first at Sensation 2002 White Edition, and it's been on my mind ever since. What a solid track by Signum.
Let this mix guide you through the weekend! You won't be disappointed. Well, you might, if you dislike Trance music, or don't like Signum. Sorry.
