So Darren Tate partners with Mike Koglin to bring us some sunny vibes and beach anthems. Can't be too bad huh? Both discs are packed full of top cuts, the first being labeled Daybreakers, the second, Sunsetters.

Disc one works its moniker excellently, kicking off with some great laid-back tracks that still have a solid drive to them (the house-like bass in "DT8 - Reflections" and dance 4/4 rhythm injected with ethnic percussion on "Brian Laruso - Song of the Ocean" are incredible). Things stay sunny, but get a bit more dramatic as the disc progresses (with the exception of :Eluna - Severance", which seems awkwardly out of place in sequence). Anjunabeats delivers some mid-set grooves giving you some contrast to the uber-bright beach tunes, setting the mood for the second half of the disc. Things really blow up on Alone and Summer Dream as we are treated to Andy Moor's signature sound with a couple of Whiteroom remixes late in the mix. However, on 1:1.618, the vibe become decidedly dark and spacey, followed by the epic Zirenz - Edge of Space (with more Andy Moor!). Darren Tate finishes with one of his own productions delivering an epic swell to conclude a great mix. The mixing on this disc in some places leaves a bit to desire as far as seamlessness of transitions (perhaps owing to odd track ordering in a few spots) but overall, does not detract from the experience.

Disco two picks up pretty much where disc one terminates. My main complain is that the disc has little progression because while there are a good variety of sounds to be heard, they don't mesh well with each other, or are nearly indistinguishable.

I've waited... to see if this two disc set is as great as I thought it was out of the wrapper... and I keep coming back and queing this up consistently over the last 18 months. I can safely say now this two disc set is definitely under rated and has gone unnoticed. You gotta like trance though... if you are a house fan, this is not a pick for you. I've gifted this to friends who I know like trance and everyone gives it thumbs up. This is a club style "mix", no gaps between tracks.

The first disc features many Darren Tate productions and tracks similar to what you'd hear on his Mondo Sessions radio broadcast. One track worth noting is a one of a kind mix of Hold Me Till The End (Deeply Truly Mix) that is my favorite second only to the 12" club mix.

The second disc is classic club style trance, very consistent from beginning to end. The last track, North Dakota (another Darren Tate alias) Superstring 2.6 (Festival Mix) is a perfect 5am closer... liken it alot.

Overall a few "vocal trance" tracks, some progressive and many classic style euphoric trance selections and no guitars, but plents of symphonic and electronic elements throughout.

The entire selection it's not bad, especially on disc one, where it features 3 examples of that sort of "new-style trance" typical of Darren Tate production (Reflections,Hold me till the end,Tomorrow never comes) as well as other big anthems like Super 8 vs.Dj Tab's Helsinki Scorching or Alone from Above & Beyond - but I strongly reccomand the purchase of Tri-State if you are A&B fan...-. On the second disc only a track is worthwhile, that is alex Morph remix of Nautical Imagery's Distant Dreams. I'm not a big fan of Mike Koglin, to be sincere...In the end, if you can't wait for the release of DT8 album's Perfect World (where there will be all the mentioned track plus Winter and other, it should be released on January, according to latest news...)you can buy it, otherwise there are others better trance selections around.
