Hornz remix was the more popular tune on this release, I guess - remix of one of DNA's earliest tunes. It's alright, but Climbing Higher on the other side is one of my absolute favourite happy hardcore tracks. The happiness of the piano and vocal are balanced nicely by quite tough percussion and plenty of big hoover stabs - all pretty typical for 1997 happy hardcore, but in typical DNA style arranged with much more energy than many other tracks of the time. Yet it seems to be a bit of a hidden gem - it was licensed to one Dutch CD back then, but I've never really heard many people play it. Shame really, it deserves to be a classic!

Slipmatt's review in Muzik magazine:
"Some good new ideas have been mixed into this one, which was massive a couple of years ago. The DJ-friendly intro, end and piano come from DNA , and the smiley new riffs obviously come from Dougal. A pleasant listen that will undoubtedly do serious dancefloor damage. 8/10".
