Simple and very formulaic, but my god does it work. On the more commercial side of trance, and loved and loathed in equal measure, it was a floorfiller and got airplay in Ibiza 2000. I remember this being promo'd a few month before the Ibiza season hit full swing - to maximise sales, you don't get that anymore!

It came out at a time where Trance was starting to become played out, the commercial peak of trance and huge arena/festivals, people were moving into harder sounds, and darker sounds, so it was refreshing to hear that great big breakdown amongst the harder dance.
