Afterwards/The Secret

Opening your inbox and seeing a Perry O’Neil release is a bit like reading that Lord Lucan’s shown up. In 2007, O’Neil’s midnight flit was one of trance’s most assiduously executed vanishing acts. Now, as then, no reasons given, but right away the EP’s deeply ploughed sonic trenches feel reassuringly familiar. ‘The Secret’ and (to an even greater extent) ‘Afterwards’ will remind you of just how much O’Neil had progressive-trance on lock throughout the Electronic Elements years.
