Gary D’s Kinetic Pressure sums up the burgeoning mid-nineties hard trance scene to perfection. Much like its Bonzai Records’ cousins of the same era, this one presented a hard driving groove filled with tough basses, pumping beats and scathing synths in many forms. It was the melodies that captured people’s imaginations though, from the smallest clubs to the biggest arenas, you got the same intensity that locked you in for the duration. Gary D aka Gerald Malke is no stranger to knocking up top notch grooves, since 1991 he has been at the forefront of the European scene and his D Trance series is a much revered collection of compilation mixes. Don’t forget to check out Overload on the flip for more seriously hard melodic trance.
