I know there could be thousands of cool versions to pick for this tune but it all somehow started with the magnificent outstanding original concept. I could probably say that Pariah and Tilt Remixes are my favourite versions besides of the Total Separation Mix.
I personally reckon this is one of those life-time changing tunes that makes you really say "Yes, it has to be Trance".

Originally released in the year 1998 on Red Parrot it got then released by Hooj Choons the year after with a stunning plethora of Remixes.

Hooj Choons have been releasing epic stuff but this still is probably my number one favourite ever because I consider the best Trance music comes from a dark soul rather than an euphoric one and, in the end, it was all born from the raw-techno darkness before turning melodic.

This tune perfectly represents that sort of 'music tunnel experience' you'd want to hear on any Trance release. Not a single second of listening is wasted even after 20 years.

Havnt listened to this in a long while. Must admit I was pretty tired of it the first time I plowed through the GU,NE.Balance and all of the other prog compilations back in the day.

Big classic. Huge tune. Spaaaaacey. :)

Great track! Heard its other mixes in...well, some mixes, and loved it. Completely agree with your sentiments there, H/L. Would be great if you could post other mixes as well.
