Rare gem from Dutch progressive master Perry O'Neil under his Locust alias (mostly for higher BPM stuff, but only two tracks released: this and Mind Circles with St. John) with a very blissful remix from Sweden's Probspot. Never released on digital/streaming platforms (as of today). The Probspot remix was featured on two compilations: Armin van Buuren's A State Of Trance 2005 and Gareth Emery's Five AM Sessions Volume 1.

It was indeed released on digital mate. But despite having stellar releases Motion Music was short lived and it seems like isn't bound to be revived anytime soon even after multiple attempts to reach the original label owners...

Don't think i've heard the original until now actually! It sounds peculiar in a way that it could almost be a progressive track - it wouldnt sound out of a place if you pitched it down to 130bpm. It's decent but probably a bit too static-sounding for an uplifter.

The Probspot mix i've heard many times, and i do like it. No one does groovy prog trance better than him, although it does take some time to get going.

Probspot I never quite liked. Too much hype about something that sounds nothing better than the average progressive producer out here. Perry gave the original such a catchy though simple feeling though. But both are great in their own category.

Love the melody in the original. Love those broading reflective melodies. Probspot was a bit overhyped im afraid.

I would say you exclusively will find these types of melodies in the 2000-2005 era, then they become rare.

Nah, I'm not having that. Probspot deserves a lot of credit for turning an ordinary, forgettable riff into a simple, catchy, instantly recognisable little melody.

I would call Probspot's sound unique, but a few tracks were released by 'Robimon' that sounded identical. Always assumed it was an alias or they worked together, but never found any evidence for that.
