A few words from Mark Sherry on achieving such an incredible professional milestone:
I’ve devoted well over 1500 hours of my life to bringing the Outburst Radioshow podcast to listeners on a weekly basis for over 500 episodes now. I started my ‘Outburst’ project as a solo artist in 2004 and I can’t thank you enough for following me all this time. To all of my long term fans and of course the new followers that have just discovered me, my show or even the ‘tech-trance’ genre, this album is dedicated to YOU! It has been very carefully put together as a reminder to you all that the Outburst Radioshow is ‘the home of tech-trance’ and always will be…long live the #techtrancerevolution!
– Mark Sherry
Covering 80 pulse-pounding minutes Disc One, appropriately titled ‘Future Fire’, puts its stamp on the genre that stands apart from the norm.
Beginning with “Backburn”, Marco V’s latest Outburst spectacle gets the disc off the blocks and sprinting. From there the energy does not cease for even a moment with pieces like Mark’s rework of Max Graham & Estiva’s ‘Generation’ and ‘Bloody Nora’ from Will Atkinson. Lostly joins in on the mix with “Nothing Left” applying the jumper cables as we then move to “Wormhole” from David Forbes, Indecent Noise’s fearsome “War Cry”, “Freeeze” from Richard Durand and Paul Denton’s tech-tribal “Curtain Call”, all of which send a shock wave through the mind and transport the listener into a new state of being. Finally, bringing ‘Future Fire’ full circle, Mark Sherry drops his and Jamie Walker’s forward thinking trance meets drum ‘n’ bass-er called “The Only One”.

With such a wild and exciting start to the package, how can it possibly get any better? Well, Disc 2 puts all questions to rest with ‘Tech Gold’.
The ‘Tech Gold’ disc offers up a 21-track salute to tech trance’s foundation years. Beginning with Marcel Woods’ “Advanced” the senses are heightened and suddenly you are catapulted headfirst into Johan Gielen’s “Flash”, the Richard Durand Remix of Tiësto’s “Lethal Industry” and Mark’s own seminal “Vengeance”. What makes this disc even more special is the well-deserved nod to ID&T’s formative tech-trance canon, with Igor S’ “Boomerang”, “Godd” from Marco V, Ricky Fobis “No Regular” and JOOP’s ‘The Future” all lining up to dish out a healthy dose of musical insanity. Mixed throughout this disc are timeless classics including “Joyenergizer” from Joy Kitikonti, Picotto’s mix of Megamind’s “Taub”, Mark’s rework of Lost Tribe’s “Gamemaster” and Mauro’s stormy “Darkroom”. Outburst 500 has truly set the tone for years to come and with Mark Sherry as our maestro, the tech trance genre will only get better!
