My personal favorite JOOF track. Might be a bit of a controversial take given his backcatalog but the build throughout the track and the main lead hit so strongly for me. No real breakdown, just nice solid flowing energy and growth throughout, and the B-melody is pretty decent as well. There's a part in the middle of JOOF editions 3 where this comes on along with TDB - Symposium, JOOF's I See The Spirit remix, and Ovnimoon - You Can Do This that's just about the peak of (standard) modern progressive psy summed up.

The track also has some sentimental value to me - I peaked on top of a monstrous sand dune in Death Valley with this playing during one of my all-time favorite trips. It hit absolutely perfect!
