This one requires a proper introduction. Over my long love affair with dance music I can only think of a handful of tracks that own me like this one. It takes hold. It's a possession, a religious experience. It offers the transcendence a lot of us long for. It has simple elements that combine in the right way to make something to last forever. If I were commissioned to put together an alien capsule to represent Earth to a distant planet and had to choose a handful of records to show another world about human music, this would probably be one of those records. I think I'll have a listen right now.
