Best remix. I remember Flutlicht starting his set at Luminosity 2018 with this track, absolutely fantastic tune.

Epic Epic melody on the original - the automation on the synths is brilliant,how it goes quiet and ducks in and out on the 2nd breakdown. I always think that this track was co-produced by Ferry as it has his bassline,its on Tsunami and he did a remix himself.

C'mon that flutlicht one is barely resembling the original.

As a standalone track maybe its good. I dont listen to hard-trance much anymore. I prefer hard trance as originals or remixes of already harder styled dance/trance. As remixes of regular trance they become cheesy if you ask me.

The SHOKK remix of Altitude - Altitude was brilliant. A good example there. But this one,not so good lol.

This track kinda reminds me of your style - ever thought about remixing it? 😁

I do love this, I wonder how much Ferry had a hand in producing as they he did produce a few tracks with André van den Bosch as Soundcheck and it does sound very Ferry like.

Never liked any of the versions of this track, not even Flutlicht could do anything good with this

imo it's too long/boring kind a underproduced but i like the sound design. after a while it becomes too tedious. the descent in melody progression is nice, makes it more interesting.
listened again, it needs +1 instrument for sure maybe even +2 for the sparse top melody and maybe some large wave (periodical) pads or something to break stuff up and give size.

It's possible that Tony Walker/AVDB didn't receive any other input, but he was definitely using Ferry's studio and equipment (and therefore very possible Ferry did have some small hand in it). Here's a couple of tracks credited entirely to Robbert Corsten (Ferry's brother) that also have the familiar sound:



(I also recognise the same percussion loop from Nitromethane - Time To Die (Seraque Remix) on that last one)
