Maybe the best progressive house track of the 90s sounds great in a club but has been laced in a few poor remixes over the years naked mix still the best without doubt.

Equally anthemic and deep as any prog house track, Passion was almost obligatory in every set at the time. As a DJ who used to avoid excessive pianos and vocals like the plague, I would dive straight to the B2 (naked) mix. Stripped down and effective, a great example of how a well produced track can work pretty much anywhere. I wasn't even aware of the main Darren Emerson mix until recently. I love early Underworld, so no surprises that it's an epic workout of a high standard, and probably my preferred mix now.

Love the Darren Emmerson mix but it's the naked dub that ive played the most so uplifting.

I originally got this for the "Of your passion" mix which i prefer to the Naked mix, simply for the extra vocal - "of your passion - uh, uh, uh"! but when i heard the Emerson remix - wow, what a remix - i love it - sounds amazing on studio monitors!

Darren Emerson's mix of Gat Decor's "Passion" is the definitive mix in every sense of the word definitive. A 14 minute journey with almost strategically timed builds and breakdowns, it is a mix that makes everyone on the dancefloor feel a bit sexier...and makes trainspotters convulse with delight.

And believe it or not, according to dirty.org, this was his very first remix.

An absolute belter of a track that crossed over on to so many dancefloors & so many different DJs. It's tough rocking house music but at the same time a euphoric piano heaven-sent anthem that would light up any club. Sasha used to cane this & mix it with DOP - 'Groovy Beat' (Guerilla) which goes amazingly well. This was probably the start of what people now call progressive house but it's so much more interesting than much of the bland, souless shite under that banner today.

In my opinion one of the greatest house anthems of all time. The production, melody and structure are so spot-on that they make this a truly timeless track and it's difficult to believe it's as old as it is!

Unfortunately some phillistines have mauled this beautiful track with acapella vocals (e.g. Biti's 'Do You Want It Right Now') in order to make it more commercial.
