Cosmic Gate - Exploration Of Space

I first heard it in a school disco.
The DJ on that disco and played the entire Rhythm & Drums CD.
Exploration Of Space came in and kids demanded for it to be played again, the were going crazy to it haha
IIRC it was played three times that night. Back in 2003 or 04 to me as a kid, this was almost otherworldly experience.
It was crazy good.

Some weeks after the party, a boy from my class asked me if I wanted a Techno VA CD that his cousin gave to him... He himself didn't like it.
It turned out, this was the CD that was played on the disco, I was crazy excited and n love with almost all the tracks esp Exploration Of Space.
I had no idea who made the bangers. Had no idea this was a Cosmic Gate album until almost 10 years later :D

This is kind of commercial trance or euro trance as some people might say I would love to hear more often the playful kind. I don't care what other people say saying it has to all serious and sad all the time.
This is what I call a melancholic happy. Man those rolling basslines and twinkling pads are so nostalgic.
Actually it's so nostalgic to me, that it kinda makes me sad. Makes me remind myself how fast the time has passed since I was an innocent child.
Reminds me how everything was so magical and I enjoyed the smallest things..
Sometimes I wonder if the kids today experience the magic the way we did back then in a world thats becoming ever colder..

Sounds even better after many years have passed!




Cosmicman - Back To Unity

Someone posted it recently on the Current Listening Topic.
Another legendary tune that sounds more and more magical as the time passes.

Based on this from the Never Ending Story soundtrack. The original is by Giorgio Moroder I believe.

Loved that movie as a kid. Quite like the Kai Tracid tune as well.
The RMB remix is decent as well.

Absolutely love this track - the Energy Mix (I think) was a standout on the Gatecrasher: Experience compilation

I immediately thought of The Blizzard as my go-to source for "Happy Trance", and this track in particular:

Instant happy feelings with this one, on the border of cheese, but too well produced...pretty obvious if you consider that masterproducer Andrea Doria is behind it.
