Great classic ... but in my opinion sampled from or inspired by 'Theme from great cities' by Simple Minds (1982) ...

Hermes Trance Mix is the one to go for on here !
It soon drops into that memorable synth cord and builds from there, great percussive loop with the synths building slowly layer on layer, introducing new rhythms and loops keeping it interesting.
Great Tune - you will recognized it from the film Basic Instinct as soon as the synth drops in - but was a big tune in its own right.

Used in the Film Basic Instinct...I supose this release should have come in gatefold sleeve - opening up Sharon Stone in THAT leg crossing scene! Now that would have been a great way to sell it as a promo...
