One of the best-polished, most technological-sounding trance tracks. It sounds phenomenal even today, and I can't imagine how audiences reacted to it in 2004. This track feels like the future, in the form of a trance production.
I never really thought about this before, but it's actually pretty easy to hear that Andy Moor is behind this one. Gotta love that bassline of his! No one makes basslines quite the same way (at least no one I can think of atm).
Also there's obviously moor sounds from him in there (pun intended).
I don't listen to the full-length original (just sections of it). I do think it's a bit repetitive, but the second climax is really good. Once that dies down then you can make a DJ edit to shorten the most repetitive parts.
I think the drums and percs are fine as they are. They're largely what makes this sound unique among all the other Andy Moor side-chained bassline tracks.
This was an interesting release as you had the new incarnation of Tilt (with Andy Moor) on the A-side and the old incarnation (with John Graham) on the B-side. I Know You're Afraid (which samples The Matrix) was probably a leftover that was dusted off to fill up the space, but fits in with the Parks/Wilson/Graham/Leama/Moor collective's trend for making tracks with sci-fi movie samples (see also Space Manoeuvres Stage One and Odessi Moments Of Space).
I would guess the faint spoken sample in TWDK also comes from a movie, but I've never seen it identified.
