Alf Bamford a.k.a Technikal is without a doubt the most prolific producer on the hard dance scene. Constantly releasing big euphoric monsters on his Technikal Recordings label, as well as firing up the BPMs under his Technikore guise, working alongside the biggest names in the hardcore scene, including Hixxy & Sy, his production techniques are second-to-none and he is set to release a brand-new artist album, aptly titled 'Soldier Of Sound' to showcase his new sounds. This is my pick from the album 'Diablo', which fuses multiple genres together into one track. You can hear psy-trance and tech trance influences, as well as hard house, acid and sprinklings of hardcore-influenced madness, whilst those UK hard trance roots are embedded through the clever melodies and sprinklings of euphoria. Essential album for any lover of hard dance and creative ingenuity.
