Originally released in 2007, this brooding track with rare vocals by Solarstone became something of a fan favourite. Remixes from Ferry Corsten, Forerunners and Andry Burtaev followed in 2009 and now this very dark progressive-tinged remix from Denmark’s Jack Høye aka Dark Matter (JOOF, Auditory, Freegrant, Mercurial) gets a full release after nigh-on 12 months of ID spins from Solarstone. The opening is deceptive, suggesting that a low-band throbbing soundscape will pervade throughout, but no; the chords and melodic components ramp up, guided by Solarstone’s impassioned vocal to a soaring crescendo.

Nice progressive take on this one although i prefer the old Forerunners version.

Anyhow im a little bit confused by the release statements. Does it really say the vocals are by Solarstone himself?

Pretty good but with gay vocals. No thanks.. Apparently its so fucking difficult to release dub versions of tracks

I really like this take on Late Summer Fields. Not my favorite (that will have to be either the Forerunners or Ferry Corsten remix), but still pretty great.

The vocals is indeed by Rich himself. He does makes vocals for his own tracks every once in a while.
There's also the album version of Lovers (found on his 2012 album Pure), which he originally made the vocals for. These vocals were replaced by new ones by Lemon for the single release.

Ooof, much better than I expected. Takes you back to like 2004. Great production, I don't mind the vocals. Would've taken a bit of extra work for a dub version, don't think you can just delete the vocals and release it as-is.

I didn't know that either. I always just assumed Alucard was the vocalist. I'm surprised, I didnt imagine his singing voice would sound like that after hearing his regular accent. It is a cheesey kind of vocals but I always liked it, it works for this track I think.

Really? If you listen closely it's clearly Rich's voice. Not much different from his speaking voice.
He also sings on Shards.

About the remix, it's a good one! But nothing beats the Ferry mix, Forerunners Dub is 2nd. ;)

Great remix. Dark Matter has become one of my favorites. So many good tunes lately.
