He's back. Russia's Vadim Zhukov (a.k.a. Vee Zed, Double V, Stanley Progman) has scored a plethora of brilliant releases - starting way back in 2004. He created his own Trance For Adults brand and received plaudits from artists such as Above & Beyond, John 00 Fleming and Tiesto. Now with new management, new music, a new vision for 2018 and fresh from remixing RNX's 'Atoms' he is back and we are proud to present Vadim's first original for Pure Progressive. Travelling is a techy piece of progressive built upon a neat shuffling groove, 909 snare fills, squelchy bass, acidic analogue synth patterns and some smart vocoders. Travelling builds and moves with real traction, a solid and welcome return.

‘Pure Trance’ is a feeling, a passion which exists outside of contemporary musical fads and fashions. It is the bringing together of millions of fans for whom this music is a way of life." - Solarstone.
From scene founding father to ringleader and flag-bearer of the Pure Trance movement, Solarstone (producer, composer & DJ Richard Mowatt) enduring influence stretches back almost as far as the genre itself.Releases like ‘Solarcoaster’, ‘The Calling’ and ‘Seven Cities’ are all benchmark classics of its pre-millennial period. The latter track – among the first of the Balearic trance anthems - has been re-released 3 times, and now sold in excess of ½ million copies. Remixed by Armin van Buuren amongst others, its instantly recognizable sunset/sunrise-sound legacy is still heard in tracks today. With the albums ‘Anthology One’ ‘RainStarsEternal’, ‘Touchstone’, ‘Pure’ and most recently the cryptically titled ‘. - - - - ’, he’s also released a quintet of critically revered longplayers.
Solarstone has long brought his sound to some of the most famous clubs, arenas and festivals on the planet. In Europe, those have come to include Tomorrowland, Cream Ibiza, A State Of Trance & Global Gathering, whilst further afield he’s rocked TomorrowWorld, Stereosonic, FSOE and numerous others.
Having championed trance’s true nature from his very first release, the last 5 years have seen Solarstone push its origin sound - almost singlehandedly - back to the top of the genre’s agenda. Through his gospel of #PureTrance - modernizing the genre’s heart, whilst ring-fencing its soul - he caught the disposition of the scene with zeitgeist timing. Within its first year, Solarstone’s ideology of Pure Trance had developed into a bona fide musical movement. It’s one which has been captured by a major a mix-compilation series, worldwide Pure Trance club and festival shows, the Pure Trance and Pure Progressive record labels & its weekly radio show.
