In this week’s interview, Chris catches up with old label boss and collaborator Rich from Solarstone. Here they chat about how the scene has vastly changed since his first release in 1995 and what keeps in the studio creating his ‘Pure Trance’ brand. Rich has seen it all – From scene founding father too, of late, initiator and flag-bearer for the Pure Trance movement, Solarstone’s enduring influence spans the near length of the genre’s history. Having championed the true nature of trance music from his very first release, the last 24 months have seen Solarstone drive its sound, almost singlehandedly, back up to the top of the genre’s agenda. Through his #PureTrance gospel – modernizing the genre’s heart, whilst maintaining its soul – he captured the mood of the scene with zeitgeist timing.
