    Classic of the Day! Gaia - 4 Elements [2001]

    I don't think that Gaia needs an introduction.
    One of the best known aliases of Armin van Buuren.
    But many of you think 'Tuvan' was the first Gaia track.
    What many of you probably don't know is that Armin started his Gaia project many many years ago with a track called '4 Elements'.
    Released already in 2001 on Captivating Sounds!
    For me it is till my favourite Gaia track and I would like to call this my 'Classic of the Day'

    Sorry guys, but I don't get all the hype about this track. I don't like it, but that's just me.

    Not the tracks he is producing under GAIA the last couple of years

    the hype is because this is one of the few gaia's tracks that you have the transcedental aspect under a transcedental alias. Check the old Dakota stuff and you will understand what i'm talking about: lost in brixton, jah powah, swirl... everything in perfect harmony: the nature, and the melody.

    about the track itself: great melodic supersaw pads (yayyy) with a great melody, some nice buildups and this track looks insane to mix, its simple but effective imo.


    and with transcedental i don't mean vocal chops, tough. but rain, water, etc.

    also this track was very underrated back in the day. how many times you heard this track being played?

    Revisiting this track now, I kinda get what y'all are saying. Definitely a well-balanced, technically brilliant production.

    Don't be ashamed Gagi. I also never really loved this as much as others. It's just because...

    This comes from the time... 2000/2001... where Svenson produced 'The Beauty of Silence' and came up with 'Twisted', the Tiesto-team was busy with 'Suburban Train' and 'Flight 643', Benno just delivered 'Airwave' and then 'Superstring (Rank 1 Remix) and 'Such is Life' in 2001, Ferry Corsten came with 'Tenshi'.

    This Gaia track is nice. It's sweet. But I don't think it's on the same level as the above mentioned classics.
