Guys!!

I just fell in love with this one again! Theres something special about this one that has a timeless quality to it. Its a little different from the other A-list dutch classics from the era. One could argue that dutch trance never was pure trance to begin with but if anything , this takes the cake for me for being the most pure dutch trance tune within that era. Maybe alongside Tony Walker -Field of Joy.

I wouldnt take away nor add anything to this. The intro is perfect! That 🌊 droplet! Doesnt that make the tune? The damn water droplet is pure magic! And the outro!? What about that? Its like reading a good book I imagine. Its a perfect ending. I LOVE how it winds down immediately after the climax and doesnt add the same tension-building elements like in the buildup.

I dont find any cheese in this tune guys! Do you?

PURE CLASSIC dutch trance!

Never liked the original, thought it was nothing special, until I heard it again last year. At least now I respect how well-produced and balanced it is. Armin really nailed this mood down back then.
