Not one comment on this classic from Art of trance! this is one of his best alongside Kaleidoscope, when you are in a purist mood there is no substitute for Octopus, it has all the elements that make a great trance track, at 140bpm it is more up tempo for Simon Berry, Octopus has the crispest cleanest synth melody and the mystical female vocals used in this track never fails to grab my attention!!, there is the most distinctive acidic 303 melody at the 2.45 mark which is 100% Octopus and all it's own!!!
Simon Berry at his best producing purist trance for the trance music purists !!!
