I saw in the 11k milestone thread that there was a desire for less cheese, to which I wholly agree, so I'm doing my part. If you're looking to expand your tastes past Above & Beyond and the more well known regulars that have slowly but steadily increased the amount of vocal and cheesy stuff in their productions and sets, I'm hoping this mix might get you on the right track.
This is a mix of some new and old techy trance that gets kinda hard toward the end. I've included a bunch of lesser known, but extremely talented artists, and a few quality names from years past.

2010 onwards has been a pretty sad state for the tech trance scene, with the major players like Sander Van Doorn, Marco V, Marcel Woods and Jonas Stenberg all opting to go where the money is and make snoozeworthy big room house. This is disappointing, but it opens up the way for a new generation of producers to take their place.
