Ever since Borderline started putting out releases again, there hasn't been a single one I actively dislike and this one is definitely no exception. It really is on fire.

Based on the bandcamp sample I heard this one could be good. I call it a sample but it is actually stated as the original mix, at 3m 30s.

Solid track. Bassline is real smooth. Melodies are neat too. Overall a classy production.

Pretty solid indeed.

It does remind me of 2005 anjuna productions, especially from the finnish (dj tab) guys, but just a little more default in the choice of percs and synths they include and not as engaging/mystifying/expansive for some reason (ehm, activa style:/).

En-joyable...btbch its not somethng i will revisit that often

Feels like such a good track, a quality production. Quite Activa-like. But it's a bit predictable and stock-sounding, unfortunately. I would've loved the synths to be richer, more immersive. But ultimately understand that this is the style they went for.

Love it. Think its the best sounding Borderline one yet? Not as robotic as the others. First few listens didnt connect too hard with the melody but now I am fully strapped in for the ride. Great stuff.

TOTY content. A SOLID release like the old stuff! production quality is like Activa indeed but not as sharp/snappy as the current Activa (Cassini/Future Memory) I feel it has that old-school mix/mastering (non-robotic) warm gritty feel to it..very pleasant to listen to compared to the recent releases since the label's return. This one is the STRONGEST after Mac & Monday - Adhafera.
