Old-school slower-paced trance from the transition between EBM and classic trance. One of the earliest examples of "trance."
Wild that this was released in Germany just 1 year after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

B-side We Came in Peace:
The 1990 mix that made Dance 2 Trance popular. I always liked the deep, groovy bassline. Not a big fan of the slowly-building up acid, but hey if that floats your boat, good on you. The acid reminds me slightly of Age of Love.
Dopamine rush at 3:24. That ambiance along with the repeating, entrancing "They came in peace for all mankind" just sounds so good. Nice spacey melody at 3:40 as well!


A-side Dance 2 Trance:
Nice ambiance. Feels like it could have been an OST for a documentary from back then.

Why? Electronics were always very BIG in Germany.. many, many years before Trance or Techno.. Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze, Kraftwerk.. Huge EBM, New Beat or Acid House scene in the 80's..

'We Came In Peace' is legendary, imo the track sounds still very fresh ++ we have a messy pub in the city with an old jukebox and the track is still there after so many years!.)

The more you know!
That is crazy (and awesome) that an electronic music scene thrived in Germany during that era.
