Totally agree with the previous comment. This EP should be as classic & worthy as Dave's Davis most famous piece (Transfiguration). When I see the historial prices, it seems no one gives a damn to this release, but believe me, it should be in your collection amongst the most expensives and beloved belgian retro trance anthems. Why ?
First, because there's a ton of brilliant ideas, ie the build up is very original, especially in Birth One, with a long breakbeat part, changes from the 4/4 kickbeat for the whole track.
Second, the overall atmosphere, very relaxed, dreamy, and at the same time moving to your guts. The polyphonic melody. Pure love for the ears. Pads are above the sky and basslines are thrilling. Very very well crafted.
Third, the EP basically contains several variations of the track, each one is superb, so you're never tired of playing the track, and also you won't use your copy too much.

While everybody is ranting and raving about Bonzai's great merits to the hard trance-, jump- and rave scene, one of the best - if not the best - releases in their catalogue is this downtempo co-operation between Dave Davis and Fredrico Santini under the 'Les Sabotages' moniker. 'Secrets' is the gem. Passionate and soulful dreamy vocals layered over a moody acoustic guitar melody. Class! Few people know that the vocals are by Dave Davis himself.
