Upon asking Alex about his approach to this showcase he explains –
I love every release I have signed to the label and to put only one hour of them in a mix was a tough call for me personally. At the beginning I thought it will be an easy one to put together, however I tried to capture the whole spirit of the label – mainly focused on prog, but also infused with the deeper side of things and also the techno side of it as I have no limitations. I have gone in with stuff from the earlier days up to the more recent releases.
