This was originally a track that Ferry Corsten created that was named "The Love I Lost" under the alias "East West". Ferry played it out on sets often and many was anticipating it's release, but it never was released in it's original form. Later on Ferry went on to collaborate with Japanese singer Ayumi Hamasaki. Ferry altered the riff for "The Love I Lost" and let Ms. Hamasaki sing on the track. The end result was this track called "Connected". It first ended up on Ms. Hamasaki's 4th album, and later on a extended version was released on "The Very Best Of Ferry Corsten", A compilation that was meant for the Japanese & Asian market

In late 2002 the track was finally released in Europe and with two new remixes by Push & Talla 2XLC. The Ferry Corsten remixes are infact the original vocal & instrumental. Push's remixes are very good, they are more energetic and also have better percussion than the original. Talla 2XLC remixes are more agressive and have a slight german hard trance sound to it, but i feel like it brings nothing exciting nor new to the table and the outcome is a bit bland
