Intro mix is amazing, love those pads, although I wish there was a longer buildup!

Liking. Sounds like there is a hint of cafe del mar in the synth?

Also I like the song after it in the club mix cut. Any ideas? vocals tad overhyped (needs a dub) 50:40 time stamp.

Well this is an interesting release. I love the pads, they are beautiful. And in the breakdown a great synth lead is developed and comes to the fore. So far the track reminds me of older trance where effort is put in to produce something worthy.

The weird thing is listening to the clips on beatport that both mixes sound more or less identical. After the breakdown each track carries on in proggy style. There is minimal use of the pads and synth.
It would have made much more sense to keep one mix as a proggy track and the other as an uplifting trancer with a riff segment after the breakdown. This is S&T after all and they're good at that.
They'd done the hard work of developing great melodies and that way people would buy both tracks. Just weird, but a very good release overall.

Yeah, defo a bit of Cafe del Mar in there. Nice track (better than average) but I agree with the great Propeller.
