Trance veterans Miika Eloranta and Janne Mansnerus, collectively known as Super8 & Tab, have been hard at work on a new compilation album. Having previously mixed many other compilations including Anjunabeats Worldwide 01 & 02, and releasing three original artist albums titled Empire, Unified, and Reformation, the duo have put forth a brand new effort on Armada Music titled Past, Present & Future.

The concept of the album is exactly what the title suggests; tracks have been selected from decades of trance music to illustrate the genre's rich history, its current trends, and the direction Super8 & Tab see it going in the future. A multitude of familiar names spanning the entire realm of trance and beyond are scattered throughout the album including Ferry Corsten, Myon, Above & Beyond, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren, and many more. 

Genre enthusiasts will find familiar classic titles with new twists on the compilation, including Mark Sixma's energetic remix of the timeless "1998" by Binary Finary, a remix of the anthem "Strange World" by Push from progressive titan Andrew Bayer, and Ashley Wallbridge's uplifting take on Super8's own "Alba." There's even a 2019 update of Super8 & Tab's hit "Helsinki Scorchin'" to open up the mix, and their remix of the classic "Amsterdam" by Luminary to close it out, ending the compilation on a track that was released all the way back in 2006.

Everything from progressive trance to tech, uplifting to classic is present and well organized to build and drop the energy throughout the hour and 25-minute mix.
