The Super 8 & Tab remix is awesome!!!!!!!

This is the original mix. Arksun is not a good person in real life he is a tool. He banned me twice on the Anjunabeats forum when I stood up against their management team.

~11 years ago I've discovered this "mashup" with Kamil Polner - Heart Of The Sun on YouTube, which appeared to be just a cut from ASOT 2005 yearmix where Armin put one track on another.

Amsterdam (Smith & Pledger Remix) + Heart Of Sun (ASOT 2005 Yearmix cut)

My friend from Poland has made a reconstruction in 2012 which sounds much better :)

These were the tracks that got me into Trance. Had no idea this was Arksun. This one is an epic remix but now I'm favoring the S&P one more

S&P and S8&T remixes are probably in my top 20 discoveries in 2017
I think both are so good, S&P wins but by a small margin to me.

I recognize Super8 & Tab's as being a bit of a 2.0 Trance, but that's completely irrelevant to someone who had gotten into the scene just at the tail end of 2016 😛. Still sounds great!

I guess that's why the forums got shut down HAHAHA. That's funny.

The original came up on my playlist this morning, it's such a beautiful track, and definitely up there as one of my favorite vocals of all time. I heard the Smith & Pledger remix many years ago and thats all I listened to until trying the original probably only 4/5 years ago. I think it's my favorite version now as its just super chill and kind of deep. Vocals are amazing and I like the lyrics too. S&P version is still unbelievable and I also get the love for the other versions too...

Seems like opinion can be quite split on what is the best version... why not a small poll then...

Original all the way. Arksun was just amazing back then.

Look, I really like Luminary in general, hell, even the original of this one is fantastic. However.

Super8 & Tab Remix all day, every day. Even at night. And this is a hill I'll die on. :p

Well, that's what led to it. I actually took on all of them because I pissed off Jer, Arksun, Tony Mcguiness and Jono Grant and Paavo and Jes (who was working for them at the time and she left after the forum got shutdown) and they didn't give me a chance to defend myself and they went behind my back and change my avatar to "Sad little man" when they don't know whom I am as a person. That's why I sold off all Anjunabeats cds/vinyls I had.

I had to disagree. Its proper trance and where trance should've stayed as a bpm and feeling

And this comes from a person that actually liked the 2.0

But I do agree both remixes are my favourite, but Super8 & Tab win in my case 😉

I will be very controversial by saying I enjoy this one too:

Wow Smith & Pledger are leading the vote, seems like the Super 8 & Tab version was always the most popular) Amsterdam (Smith & Pledger remix) my favorite vocal trance track of all time
