Commercially successful track from the trance heyday.
Somehow I imagine myself playing football/soccer when I hear it - I think it's because of the bongos.

Damn, this is so good. I love when you are so sure you "know" the track in question, and I do, and not just from seeing it on youtube/internet days. I remember hearing this quite alot on music channels back in the day, and back then I actually found it slightly annoying (Nooooo, not those two guys again just playing drums for 4 min I thought ) I think if I remember correctly (I was a kid/teenager), but after actually listening to it now 20 years later from start to finish it just stirs up some emotion and you hear it as it really is. Its been the same with other tracks from the millenium days aswell. Its so cool to hear the now again if you really give them your time. Not saying they are super complex or are a super rewarding listen but its just something about it .

Maybe you thinking about football because of Dario G - Carneval de Paris?

Haha I've heard this somewhere and I don't know where! So cheesy, but not overbearingly so. Still wouldn't want to listen to it.

Maybe. Both tracks just have that vibe of a big football stadium, like when you watch the matches on TV haha.

Valid viewpoint, m8. For me it's the good kind of cheese :p The artists have a more chilled out song that's more to your liking - it's closer to house, but it retains some of their "tribal" style

Yeah, as I said it's not overbearing, just not to my liking. Same with that chilled song.
