    Airwave's Dark And Long Remix is 7:45 (and 2nd shortest). Must be some kind of a joke. Sounds good though!

    I like the Jonno Brien remix as well. Adam Kent remix sounds awesome too, so does Quietman remix.

    Can't really decide on the favourite since all of those sound great. Maybe Jonno Brien and Adam Kent remixes. Looking forward to the release!

    Digging the Airwave mix for sure!

    Not gonna lie, I've actually never heard this track(I know of it though) Very good stuff from what I hear. How old is the track anyway?

    Airwave's remix actually sounds the least interesting to me. All others have a lot more potential imo.

    Been looking forward to hearing these for ages purely for the OOOD Remix & the long awaited return of Quietman.

    They all sound absolutely brilliant. From a pure progressive stand point - Quietman & Airwave's remix sound absolutely heavenly. Quietman's still retains the outstanding original sound with what sounds like a bit of a twist at the end & Airwave's remix adds some proper lush pads.

    The Jono Brien remix has been kaned by Carl Cox for months. Proper techno remix whilst retaining the brilliance of the original. Adam Kent's remix I'd need to hear a bit more of to get a better idea.

    OOOD's remix sounds like it has the most potential for me. Sounds much more up tempo & I love what they've done with it from the sample.

    Amazing package. Didn't expect anything less.

    Doesn't sound dated at all. I use it in mixes all the time. In fact it really show considering how many of the remixes have stuck so closely to the original's sound, what an absolutely timeless track it is. I'd honestly say the only track on Platipus that sounds dated from the 90s is the first release by AOT.

    'Official' previews: https://soundcloud.com/platipusmusic...emixes-preview

    I think the OOOD and Quietman remix sound the most promising.

    The Jonno Brien remix has a great groove, even though it's very straightforward. Airwave's remix sounds solid from this preview as well.

    Overall a very nice package, imo.

    Ok I just had another listen, I guess you guys are right it still got the magic. its a 2 decade old track though goa style track though, I think a nice little modern trance update is welcome @Daysleeper.

    Correction: I like even the OOOD remix, and the Original which I've never even heard of before. So that means I love EVERY mix on the EP. Mostly because I can find little to hate when it comes to techno/tech-house/(progressive) house. Even Airwave's little trace of trance in his mix is very good. As for the other mixes that don't fall in the aforementioned category (OOOD and Original), I like them both even though I don't find myself exploring these genres.

    Bought the whole release. My order of preference is as I expected from the previews. Fave remixes are Quietman and OOOD (can't quite decide which one I prefer). These are followed by Jonno Brien and Airwave. The Adam Kent remix is the least interesting of the bunch for me.
