One of my favourite tech trance tunes. Sounds simple but really well made. The B side on the original release was called Grace, the original mix of which does not seem to be posted anywhere on the net.

I never considered this to be tech trance before, but I see where you are coming from. Was tech trance a coined term in 1999? Amazing track regardless.

... the B side of Luminance - Plutonium released on Miracle Records (1999) ... here it is:



Or were you looking for another mix? According to Discogs there was later a separate release called Grace on Avantgarde, but I think the recording in the video should be the original ...

Good question and I'm not 100% sure. Archives of various dance music magazines from the 90's are available on the net. A glance through those would reveal the answer.

My guess would be that tech trance was a term used in the 90's. When you hear a production like The Freak & Mac Zimms - Submission (1996), there just no other way to describe it.

For a long time I thought that Submission was the earliest tech trance production. Then recently I read a comment on another forum in which a track from 94 or 95 was posted and referred to as the first one. It was by the producer Jamez or one of his aliases.

That's great, thanks. I was looking for the original mix of Grace. Such a great track and a worthy B-side to Plutonium.
