One of my favorite vocal tracks of all time.

Also a big fan of Tilt in this era - loved their take on the progressive trance scene!

Not sure on the inconsistency between the track being credited as 'Tilt feat. Maria Nayler' and just 'Maria Nayler' - maybe someone can shed light on that!

There's a ton of remixes about of this, (Feel free to add more to the thread), but this one from Vadim Soloviev in 2007 is my pick!

The track was made and first promo'd in 1999. When DJs played it that year it appeared as Tilt - Angry Skies in the tracklists. Then on the official release in 2000 there was a name change.

Either way, the Terr Vox Mix 1 is the absolute height of Tilt and probably trance in general. The level of detail that went into the mix is staggering. So many quality touches and effects. The drive and the atmosphere are unparalleled. On top of that, the way synths just appear in the breakdown without warning is mind-blowing and takes it to the next level.

They basically took Maria's vocals and created the rest of the track from scratch. The vocals are angelic, solemn and deep. Hands down my favourite vocal trance of all time.

first heard the Vox 1 mix here


excellent prog tribal remix from Quivver

Not heard this for ages,love the vocals. Tilt made some of the best Progressive Trance ever. I like the Quivver mix aswell,although wish they'd include the full vocals,but maybe its not that style of remix.

One of my all time favourites. Don't really remember hearing it out much at the time although Guy Ornadel did play it on his Essential Mix.
