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.

Yeah this a magical one from 2004. Remember it debuting on TATW and thinking it was special. The whole episode is filled with 10/10 tracks.

It feels like this was one of the early electro/zippy baselines that suddenly became huge in so many Anjuna releases for the next 10 years after this release.

Huge one!

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've always found it difficult to decide between this and the Ozgur Can Main Mix. I think the original beats it by a small margin.

I've always loved this track, it's got this futuristic spacey vibe to it. Fits in perfectly in Armin's Universal Religion mix from 2004.

Having said that i rarely listen to the entire track as it gets a wee bit repetitive towards the end. Think this could benefit from a modern rework with more updated/polished drums.

Yeah, the repetitiveness of the original is a slight turn-off to me as well. I think that the Ozgur Can Main Mix is the winner when it comes to that.

There's also this 2011 Arty remix, but it's trash in my view:

I never really listened to the Osgur Can Remix, ive probably heard it but don't remember.

The original is pure bliss and nostalgia everytime i turn it on. It's actually in my top 20 all time list. Love it.

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.
