On “From The Start,” Farius creates a rapturous celebration of progressive trance, with his singular, focused approach resulting in a captivating fifteen tracks.

The album demonstrates his growth as an artist, culminating in a cohesive project with a distinct identity.
Farius invites outside influence on the album as well, pushing the boundaries of progressive music through incorporating elements of synthwave on the emotional “Way Back When” and finding a luscious sweet spot between trance and techno with the thunderous “Kechno.” He enlists a range of exciting collaborators who imbue the album with varied textures including vocalist Clara Sofie who brings a classic trance vibe to ‘Cloud 9’ and London Thor who appears twice on the album, delivering a particularly rousing performance on blissful album closer ‘Stars’.
“This album is exactly as the title describes; a culmination of the journey I’ve been on thus far since I sent my first demo to Enhanced Music so many years ago. I won’t pretend and say it embodies my ‘life’s work’, but it’s a collection of tracks that hopefully show the journey I’ve been on since I started producing and where I’m at right now musically. I wanted to produce a versatile album exploring some different styles and sounds.” – Farius
