Mark Sherry & Tempo Giusto forge a raunchy tech trance mix in Prism Volume 2
Mark Sherry knows how to knock his audiences back with his raunchy selection of techno and trance, and shows no mercy on his latest Outburst compilation. He comes out swinging on his portion on Prism’s second iteration, opening with a raunchy “Any Time”— an original he made alongside David Forbes under their newly-minted moniker, Thick As Thieves. With such a powerful opener, one could sense that the mix would take them on a wild ride, and Sherry didn’t disappoint. Dark, pounding kicks serve as the one constant throughout the mix, as the ears are thrown about by sinister synth work, titillating samples, and tense breakdowns.
The Outburst boss chose Tempo Giusto as his collaborator on Prism, Vol. 2. Faced with the pressure of creating his debut compilation contribution, Giusto rose to the challenge in spades with an equally impactful mélange of tech trance flavors. He takes advantage of his invitation onto the series by featuring an array of his own originals and re-works — each of which remind listeners why he’s been such a favorite among the underground. Additionally, he packs a punch with pieces like Alex Di Stefano’s “What’s The Catch,” and a brief moment of respite with Robert Nickson’s “Euphorica.”
