There are also the massed ranks of your dedicated Coldharbour artists’ latest featured on the album. What, in particular, can listeners look forward to hearing from them?
Markus: I am so proud of my Coldharbour family! Whenever a compilation project comes up, they are always there to play their part tremendously with their individual talents.
When I received the details from Ministry that they wanted me to mix Trance Nation back in March, the first process was to contact the producers and emphasise the importance on their next production or two, because I wanted to create something memorable and special for the compilation through the inclusion of their compositions.
So even though the likes of Nifra’s Army of Lights was an important part of Coldharbour’s summer release schedule, the ultimate aim for it was to have it shine on Trance Nation – one of those tracks people will remember when listening in future years.
Doppelbanger – the collaboration between Mr. Pit and Fisherman & Hawkins, was an eleventh hour entry, in that they sent the final version 12 hours before the submission deadline! But I’m glad to have been able to include it.
And I’m so happy with all of the input from our guys really; whether it’s the beautiful lush tones of Gai Barone or Danilo Ercole, or the peak hour power of Ron Alperin or Dave Neven, they should be very proud of their work, and I am certainly grateful to them all.
