I remember hearing this first on MTV Dance as their "Future Anthem" where it just showed a white label being played on a technics 1210 with the tune accompanying it. I remember thinking then (a good 4-5 months before its release) that this would be a major hit, possibly a number 1. It was no surprise when it did hit number 1, especially after witnessing first hand the damage this tune did on a dance floor in Ibiza circa 2004.

Onto the tune, well, i actually love it. It's a solid groove that builds and builds when it hits a quiet breakdown. The sample is then cleverly worked in for that hands in the air/sing along moment on the dance floor. Then when it drops, it's a full on bass assault. It really has a slamming groove that still works today. The fact this record spawned loads of half baked imitations using other 80's samples, highlights how good this record is - despite what the haters say, i bet at some point, most of use have danced our assess off to this.

Prydz never sold out after this either, so credit to him. I dont think he planned it as a hit record, it's one of those "accidental hits". If it enables him to make his money so he can produce more underground tracks then fair play. Top tune.

The Filterheadz remix does it for me on this one. Although using a lot of elements from Yimanya and still being repetitive, it sounds very fresh after getting hammered with the original. The typical Filterheadz percussion makes it very danceable too.

This is probably the worst ever peice of music i've heard in my life. And the worst thing is i hear it wherever i go.

The dude has one one loop and one fill and he just keeps them going for 5 minutes non-stop. The only thing semi-appealing about the track is the video, which entertains me for the best part of one minute before the tune makes me want to shoot myself in the jugular.
