The Way has a lovely early french house vibe, very hypnotic.

yeah at the risk of being a crowdpleaser i couldn't agree more with these posts... i love all genres of electronic music that i starting getting exposed to (and later addicted lol) starting in about 89 with 808 state, klf, the orb and all the rest... was blown away by 73:14 and their other stuff (reload etc.)... then in 96 when this came out i bought it cuz it was GC and i was like 'wow...wtf is this? i love it'... well, i was told it was deep house and i wanted more of it but could never seem to find it... thankfully these days there is more like this but yeah... if i played out, i'd play this track in every deep house set without question... it still sounds that good... oh and btw... deep house is probably my fave genre lol... thanks tom and mark :)

"The Way (Secret Ingredients Mix)" is probably the best House Track ever...for me.

Much has been said about this tune - so apologies in advance but I'm gonna say some more. Prior to this Global Communication released some of the finest ambient electronic music you could hope to hear. (Splurge some cash on their re-interpretation of Chapterhouse's indie rock album - you won't be disappointed.) If you've followed Mark Pritchard, you'll be aware that he is one of the finest producers alive - not only taking in every dance movement going, but also giving beautiful music for heads to listen to. This track is a perfect example of how sampling can be a truly positive force in music. One well worked vocal loop of Dexter Wansel's 'The Sweetest Pain' is spun out so carefully that when the record ends and you want to hear it again. Pritchard and Middleton didn't collaborate on many house tracks (in fact, of the two, Middleton went on to make more music in this style) and when you've achieved this highly, I can understand why. Mesmeric, danceable, headphone-friendly genius. 'The way' is a staple for deep-house lovers and electronic music fans in general. And I haven't even touched on the flip (check the deep dish remix). Got my copy when it was new priced £1.99 coz it was 'record of the week' in my local independent. Days gone by.

Agreed, this is possibly my all time favourite tune to play. Its that good that I take more effort over trying to mix it than any other, just to do it justice.

The way it just builds and builds and the use of the sample is unrivaled in my opinion.
Absolute belter of a track, and was more than happy to pay £22 for it, cos I 'love the way it makes me feel'

10/10, no question!

When the Groovejet crew (spiller) spinned this track to open his set, he opened my mind as well. A whole new perspective grew inside me to define deep house music. It still surpices me, that a simplistic and monotone tune, like the 'the Way, secret ingedrients remix' is, can lie so far in front of his time, that now 10 years later, this vinyl still earns the crown of deep house. It was years later when Arnold Jarvis and Chris Gray picked up what Global Communication invinted. A classic for all those experienced deep house lovers who enjoyed it before the millineum.

this record is IMPOSSIBLE to find. It took me 3 years to get a copy. Harry the Bastard put out a mix CD that uses this tune and they released it on double pack Vinyl. If you can score that double-pack, you can snag "The Way".
