this is a very good example for the genre that is a hybrid of chicago house, ambient, industrial and detroit techno.

A gentle classic and a very different twist on the sound steadily emerging from Germany, circa '92.
With this simple, elegant, messy, roll your eyes back, grind yer teeth, sweaty palms in the air anthem of a song that wouldn't sound entirely out of place next to something by Tangerine Dream. This is how trance came to be. A sound being explored by several others at the time but nothing else hit with such a huge impact as Stella.
How many one night stands and/or couples emerged out of the "Hold me, Love me" cocoon of this one?
Bring the love indeed!
Moby's Electro mix is pure floor to ceiling delirium. Where the original mix and the Jam & Spoon remix capture the essence of that gentle warm feeling of MMMMMMM and the sigh. The Electro mix captures that pounding heart 'gnar gnar' gaffled panting sweaty armpit feeling quite well. A steady climber with rolls and waves of snares that are sure to compound the affect when used properly.

'Stella' still stands as one of the greatest classics of the genre in history. Deep, minimal-hipnotic trance with a sensual climax, it became a real fever on the dancefloors of many different countries. Released by Renaat Vandepapelière's R&S label, 'Stella''s original version sounds litterally plounges into your head and will remain as one of the treasures of the beginning of the nineties, thanks to the major general of the belgian label, whose talent gave him the chance to find the german duo Jam El Mar & Markus Löffel aka Mark Spoon at their best moment. There are some other versions in 'The Complete Stella', like the ones of Frank De Wulf and two different from Moby, but the best one is truly the original.
Many say that trance lost this deep minimal hipnosis roots some time after it was created, in 1992. Anyway, there won't be a better example of the kind than 'Stella'.
