Not much more can be said about this release. It just about captures the zeitgeist of the peak of the trance bubble in 2000. That's not to say the track is lacking or "too mainstream", to the contrary, you have your pick of two of the finest examples of trance to be cut on vinyl.

Side A, the original mix, is at once uplifting and introspective as trance can get, with a main melody that's able to move the listener into a euphoric, yet subdued, mindset. Side B, a remix by the then-up-and-coming trance master Armin van Buuren, is more on the uplifting side than any other and is another prime example of late 1990s/early 2000s European trance sound.

There are many reasons why Oakenfold, at the prime of his popularity, picked this as one of his favorites, but it has to be heard to truly be believed. No classic trance set is complete without the inclusion of "Viola" in any form.

This initially appeared on Platipus Records Volume 5 several months prior to its release on 12", and in doing so built up a lot of interest amongst DJs and the wider public. Paul Oakenfold in particular was crazy about it.

The word 'sublime' does not even begin to describe the Original Mix. Think 'Love Stimulation' (LoveMix) by Humate for a good comparison, but more uplifting. This is everything a melodic euro trancer should be and more.

One of the very best trance records ever.
