I believe this was produced in 96/97 though not released until 99. Apparently Oakenfold played it regularly during his Cream residency from 97 - 99 and a huge buzz built up around the track by word of mouth. No Internet back then of course.

I first heard it during this essential mix in 99


This was probably the first time it was played on national radio and it really grabbed my attention. I think Oakey programmed the whole set so that when BITG dropped at 92 minutes it would make maximum impact. And it really did grab my attention when those vocals and synths came in.

It was released a couple of months later and divided opinion. Some loved it, others hated it. Most trance trance fans loved it I would say. I remember the first moment I heard it and still love it.

Loved it but it does sound like a few producers made it. Bit messy but still great.
