Domination fuck yeah. That track destroys any sound system that’s graced with it.

Why you share it with Sequioa? Did they appear on shared release?

Domination for me is like the second best track of all time. Absolutely marvellous piece of music.

Still have these cd singles somewhere... good to hear them again. Such a great release of energy. They sound sooo fresh to this day.

Domination has a special place in my heart - the first track i ever heard from a bought Trance CD - the first Euphoria. (i played CD2 first for some reason hehe). Incredible track.

They (and especially Domination) feel like 7 different tracks in one, yet still cohesive and interesting enough.

Which one is the first?

WOW's first album is really on another level and Domination's the icing on the cake.

Shame how far they've fallen...

Not that Way Out West's debut album would be bad at any means. On the contrary, it is really fine album. But I think it was Intensify where Way Out West peaked. Unfortunately after that the magic disappeared. I have the rest of the albums too, but those are much more inconsistent and have much less really good tracks than the first two albums.

Guess it's a matter of personal taste, I'd say Intensify is my 2nd favorite and another stellar album for sure! And even the one after that had some solid tunes too, but you could see the writing on the wall from there.

Domination is one of the best tracks ever made, so f'in good. When the spoken sample comes in just so great with the tension and build from there out. Finesse to bring in and out the breaks, almost reggae influenced vibes at the start and end sections too.

Blue was the first electronic track I ever had in my collection, stolen from a mates Kazaa folder. Eventually when the ears got more advanced I started hammering the rest of the album and remember being blown away. The Gift now in my top 10 of all time probably, and Ajare + King of the Funk very high up too. First album the best for me.
