KV 23 is one of my all-time best, a true standpoint of the era. The first time I listened to it was at an outdoor party in northern Greece in the summer of ’96. I sat there on the grass on a big opening amidst the high trees, completely stunned. Almost everyone around me stood still, in awe, so captured that it seemed impossible to dance. And then it struck me… for the first time in my life, me a Greek living in Greece, I realized deep down the true meaning of the “Dorian order”, conceived in early antiquity in the exact same lands. Strange, very strange that this had to come via three Englishmen (Tristan & Process, and James Monro DJing) some 2,500 years later! It was a lot later that I accidentally found out that the “KV #” pattern is used for numbering ancient Egyptian tombs.

So many tracks from back then have been heavily (and oh so arbitrarily) remixed, but this still remains untouched, as far as I know. Yet this is the only trance theme that ever made my musical imagination blossom.

Time stands still; time turns timeless. This is what psychedelic trance was all about: opening wide the doors of perception…
