I had a look around and wasn't able to find it anywhere. I haven't even been able to find the original mix, other than on some mix compilation. But no unmixed version anywhere. So could seem like that track (along with remixes) was never released for some reason.This was such a great thread back then. I discovered a lot of little gems!
I actually have a track that might fit into this thread.
I heard this track almost 10 years ago for the first time and was never able to get it. As far as I know, it has never been released. Does anyone know if there exists a full version anywhere?
He is still producing under the same name, however it's not the same style anymore. Lately he does deeper stuff, such as this:Btw: Is A.M.R. still producing?
Can't say how "proper" enough this would be, but I have a vinyl rip of this, found in soulseek ages agoThis one only got a very limited vinyl release back in the days. If i remember correctly, it's on exactly 2 different vinyls, one of them being a promo. Such a shame, cause it's such a great remix!
To this day I'm still looking for a proper version of this remix (started looking for it around a decade ago). Personally I'm not gonna buy the vinyl, since I'm unable to rip vinyls or even play them myself, so that wouldn't make much sense for me.
Most likely the one mp3 320 file that I have is the same as yours. But the spectres in it are almost like lossless visibly, I'm assuming it's the special version of the LAME codec, you can only see distinctive FQ cutout line in the breakdown. Personally I would never ask for a better version, considering the whole situation with quality in the trance genre in general and in the stuff released by Armada in particular4 the sheer amount of tracks with mindboggingly poor sound spectral quality, which could only imply some solid author's/producer's distain to the material, to mutilate them like that and for so many time to plague and darken the doorsteps of us sincere aficionados. How many times we bought stuf from beatport only to look at a 192 or even 96 kbps crappy spectres, against the background of yet another invoice? Therefore I, for one, will axiomatically accept this version as the original master source, and I shall never demand any letters of provenance, the look of the spectres is enough for me, because this semi-official or even bootleg mp3 is already much superior to a great deal of official stuff properly released (I believe), and because the alternative route is probably trying to get the thing from Rex Mundi himself. However, all these ramifications notwithstanding, it won't also stop me from trying to improve the situation, at least temporarily; I made a very quick reconstruction of the thing, took the breakdown part (30 seconds) and the very ending from the edited 4:44 version, these parts sounded fairly interchangeble, and by the looks they had same mastering.Rex Mundi - Sunset In Ibiza (Drive Mix)
This got released on the Armada Promo Pool at the time so was really lucky to get a copy of the full 320mp3 but only the edit made it to Beatport. Very strange decision never to release the track.
Yeah, revoked from the stores, thus eligible for this threadI remember buying this one as soon as it got released, but now it's nowhere to be found

Hm.. sad. Thanks for the effort!I had a look around and wasn't able to find it anywhere. I haven't even been able to find the original mix, other than on some mix compilation. But no unmixed version anywhere. So could seem like that track (along with remixes) was never released for some reason.

Cool, thx a lot! I've basically just been looking for anything better than a 192kbps mp3, which is what I've been stuck with for so many yearsCan't say how "proper" enough this would be, but I have a vinyl rip of this, found in soulseek ages ago
The proprietary Fraunhofer codec used in iTunes returns very nice 320 files like this, so could be that's what they used. Never actually could get a "visibly lossless" 320 with LAME with various settings tbh.I'm assuming it's the special version of the LAME codec
I guess you have to wait for Bonzai to re-release this as Subtraxx is now part of them and part of its catalogue has been released digitally.
