A combination of many sound forms such as techno, house, industrial, classical music and more it has like many genres developed over time, just like the musical style of Alex and Marcel, otherwise known as Four Hands.
Over their musical careers Four Hands have gone through the movements of deeper sounds, into harder techno, meanwhile keeping focus on melodic synthesisers, atmospheric sounds and layered percussions. All elements that characterise the genre of trance, these can also be seen across this EP.
Featuring two originals from the duo, the EP title track sits on the melodic side with strings, meanwhile ‘Inner Storm’ carries a progressive bass and synths.
