I record I will cherish until the day I die, fond memories of playing this at university, it always goes down a treat I think because its appreciated by a wide audience. The atlantis mix has a rather prog feel to it, the breakdown is typical Sasha late 90s...it allows you time to close your eyes, gather your thoughts and think about the meaning of life! this tends to appeal to anorak prog fans/djs who loves their fluid, hooj, platipus kinda stuff. The L-Vee mix is exactly the opposite in the sense that this has a very uplifting, driving trance undertone, again synonymous with Oakenfold in the late 90s and indeed of the sound Laurent Veronnez was churning out at the bonzai record label. This side appeals more to your average university student who buys those Ibiza mix cds but also gives them a taster of "ahem" better trance music than what is featured on those cds by the likes of ian van dahl, darude, southside spinners etc. That isn't by any means saying the Atlantis mix is miles better but I think it has something more unique than the l-vee mix, which if you listen to his productions for bonzai are very similar. Another feather in the cap for hooj choons, this sits nicely in your box with sacred cycles, everytime, three drives, movin thru your system which I take it everyone whose brought this has...if you haven't have a word! ;)

Still, after 13 years, this tune (in its Atlantis Mix) just keeps going and going, and sounds as fresh now, as it did when i first heard it at Gatcrasher in 1999. This tune is somehow poignant yet uplifting in one. It epitomises everything that was good about Trance, 1999 clubbing and electronic music in general. Dont bother with any of the remixes, you only need the Atlantis Mix.Everytime i hear this, it takes me back to 1999, just turning 18 and falling in love with house/trance - the best year of my life really.

I cant reiterate just how good this piece really is, so i will say (along with others it seems) that this is probably Trance's finest moment.

A balearic trance anthem!

A little known fact about this pre-millennium Gatecrasher anthem is the guitar melody was essentially lifted from an obscure New Wave track by Australian band Kids In The Kitchen. In 1984, the band had an Australian hit with 'Change In Mood'. 15 years later, the melody had somehow migrated to a Birmingham recording studio, and later, every country with a dancefloor.
