This is currently one of my favorite electronic tracks ever made in humanity, after i recently discovered it accidently on a youtube video: RAVE MAXXIMUM POWER ZONE a french radio station, recorded a radio program on tape on 8th of December 1990 together with other European dance tunes of that period.
As i was listening to the set and everything was going normal with the typical new beat/techno 1990 tracks, suddenly everything stopped, and this track appeared from nowhere and that was it:
It hit me. What the........i said to myself. WHAT IS THIS?
After i begged Shazam i knew what was it.

This tune stands above and behind almost everything ever produced. The quality is such a high that is almost scary, made me feel awe. Ιt totally samples ''Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part I)'' as the basic ambient layer hence ''The Pink Zone'' title, but completely filled with a heavy downtempo breakbeat/percussion loop, and a funky bassline, and transpose it to another tone every after some bars, and back again to the main tone.

The result is a dark funky downtempo ambient masterpiece that doesn't belong to this world, but only to a deleted since many decades, romantic society. It is one of those rare moments in music that happened only once, like a rare orchid type flower that blooms and fades within just some seconds in a lifetime. It is worthless mentioning that the original ambient Pink Floyd's track of 1975 sounds boring & pathetic, waited for 15 years since 2 new beat producers Agaric & Bhab finish, fill, complete, and give a meaning to it.

P.S: I need to buy it on vinyl.
