Finnish trance duo: Super8 & Tab

Duo Miika Eloranta and Janne Mansnerus from Finland had only been releasing singles until late 2010 when they released their album Empire, their philosophy being that the experience of their music is lost in studio recordings. On first listen, Empire is a fairly straightforward trance album. I stumbled upon it in a CD store, and without really knowing what it was, I took a chance. It’s very considered and oddly passionate music.
