Oakenfold preferred the Bruce Norris (dropped by him @ Slinky Opera House Bournemouth 98) whereas Sasha & Digweed opted for the Van Bellen mix (features on their Expeditions cd), for me they both do something abit different but are still very progressive in nature, another hit for Additives glowing CV

I don't agree. To me the Bruce Norris Mix is much better. It's way less sophisticated than Van Bellen's one, but its simplicity is what makes it great. With better focus on excellent vocal sample, and the feeling described below as "This instead is subtle, still emotional and uplifting, but without any of the hysteria of your taucher/moonman/system f kind of track". Bruce Norris Mix really does stand out this way. Still Van Bellen's remix is great as well. Though it's more acid thing, when Bruce Norris Mix is a mixture of acid and trance (later acid one can say) sampling. Van Bellen's mix is better for some rave or dancefloor, when Bruce Norris Mix is something you want to listen at home

I have been a funky/deep house DJ during my entire DJ career. I do appreciate good music from other genres including breakbeat, trance, and others. The van Bellen mix of this track is one of the best electronic genre tracks I've ever heard. A friend of mine used to play this a lot back around 1998 and that's when I first heard it. He had the Additive label vinyl. I've liked it ever since.

I give respect where respect is due and this track definitely deserves it.

5/5

Couldn't agree more with the fellow two reviewers here. While I first picked up this release -- I think in 1999 -- because I heard the Bruce Norris mix at some progressive trance parties I attended, I quickly discovered that the Van Bellen mix is really where it's at. First of all, I am a huge 303/acid fan, so it's noteworthy that the track has (as simonautomatic points out) some soothing, melodic 303 work, which is always subtle, but definitely gives the track some real substance. And while it is undoubtedly a melodic piece, the bassline is forceful enough to give the track some kick, and thus I think the 'crossover' label fits very well.

As such, this track, at least for me, fits into a category that I have longed labeled 'sleepy trance', or 'rainy day trance'. It's dark and driving, yes; but it also has an undeniable elegance, a bit of acid, and a haunting, even touching melody. Top drawer, 5/5, no question about it.

Peace!

Van Bellen Mix is the one to go for if you're picking this up. Hard pounding dark-trance-progressive crossover that was, as one previous reviewer stated, well ahead of its time in 1997. It has aged very well. The keys are really haunting, and the girls voice is youthful and just pure sex all around. Her voice conjures images in your head of the perfectly seductive young woman out on the dancefloor, lurking in the dimly lit corner like a spider waiting for an unsuspecting guy to come along. I think we all wish we could be on the receiving end of her whisper.

One of those slightly indefinable tunes that skirts around the edges of trance, whilst staying mostly in a progressive house vein.

The orginal mix develops and builds really well, unfortunately the main drop after the central breakdown suffers from poor production (overly compressed) but it's still a great track with tons of character, charm and individuality. There's an intimate tone to this track which is really beguiling. If you think about a lot of trance and progresssive house from this period and later, it's all "big room", epic stuff. This instead is subtle, still emotional and uplifting, but without any of the hysteria of your taucher/moonman/system f kind of track.

The Van Bellen mix heads off in a deep trance direction, and is darker than the orginal. Some melodic 303 action introduces the main hook to good effect. One of Van Bellen's finest efforts from the period, duly picked up by Sasha and Digweed for "Northern Exposure - Expeditions (CD1)" a year after its release.
