When Chakra's "I Am" was released back in the 90's, the Bedrock remixes had already perfected the original into a power house track that has never been equaled. Seldom do remixes ever eclipse the original, so when rumors starting circulating of a progressive breakbeat remix back in 2003, I didn’t expect too much. Then I heard John Digweed play the Wrecked Angle remix and was blown away.

This track begins with futuristic and dark combinations of symphonic sounds. It builds continuously with effects & percussions until the main vocal comes in with a menacing bass line. It's beautiful, but dark and it hurts in all the right places. A peak time track that hasn't aged over the period of 7 years. This was the track that made me a fan of the Wrecked Angle. In addition, Kasey Taylor (aka Ocean Wave) provides a second breakbeat remix that is more downbeat but equally as good.

It was powerful releases, such as this, back in 2003 that help catalyze the explosion of progressive breakbeats that unfortunately lasted for no more than 2 years. It was the last great era for the progressive movement before the infusion of the electro sound.
