Warning: lots of tracks mentioned.Not sure i understand what youre saying hehe - this was typical for 2001.
I see what youre saying but sounds and production techniques were moving so fast back then.Warning: lots of tracks mentioned.
I thought this track sounds like it was made a couple of years later.
Imo 2001 was a transitioning period in which some tracks started sounding "modern" (like this and Flutlicht - Icarus), but many tracks even from a year later still retained the sound design and production quality of late 90s tracks. Think Gouryella - Ligaya (2002), Dee Dee - The One (Green Martian Mix) (2002).
My impression of the "2001 sound" is closer to Oceanlab - Clear Blue Water and Hibernate - Mane Sonitus. They're fine tracks and feel removed from the late 90s/2000 sound like Transa - Transtar, but they don't feel as modern as this A&B track does.
If you have any suggestions for other 2001 tracks that feel just as modern, let me know. I'd love to hear them!
