Melancholic uplifting trance that is full of sound. Couldn't think of a better way to phrase it, haha. I love how the lead synth sounds - it just overwhelms you with both grief and hope. Taz's vocals are also superb and fit well with the intent of the track.

12" Vocal mix featuring Taz (Taz Alexander)'s vocals.


Instrumental dub. Most of you will prefer this, and in fact this is the version I know (the 12" vocal mix is new to me), but I've always thought the dub feels somewhat empty. I think Electric Boutique built the vocal version first and then removed Taz's vocals for the dub. Regardless, if you prefer your trance without vocals, this is the version for you.


Fun fact: Taz Alexander provided vocals for several of Juno Reactor's tracks, including those featured in the Matrix movies.

Awesome track <3 everything is drowned in bass /*Q*\
nowadays probably no one would release this track because it's too dirty, but if you fix it, it will lose it's magic and be more generic.

i have a good example btw what i am talking about.
// over compressed and has louder bass, i got it so from one dude who ripped it.

// new remaster

This is a good point. Heal feels lo-fi, as if it needed additional mastering, but I think the lack of "polish" is part of what gives it charm

I remember hammering this back in the day. It sounds wide as fuck, like a double decker bus driving through a sewer pipe. You couldn't escape the dancefloor before getting the shakes.
