The deep house track is amazing. I'm not sure how it came to be, since it seems to be part of a series of half a dozen terrible examples of trance tracks. But diamond in the rough or not, I'm both amazed and gladdened by its existence.

The only word I can think of to describe it is "Timeless". Perhaps it will be recreated by some band of musical drifters a few thousand years after an apocalypse that wipes most of civilization away. Or perhaps it was created in the 1940s by some unwitting recipients of CIA acid dosing experiments, recorded and left undiscovered until Hooj blew the dust off in 1999 and released it.

Here's a link to the track on Spotify:

Solaris Height's rerub of 'Seven Cities' was one for the deeper heads, the tempo is taken down alot and it's epic overtones is stripped off leaving a sweet Balearic redub. Most of it's original elements have been taken off and the main vocal sample have been pitched down a lot. The melody has been played on a accoustic guitar to great effect especially when it starts to noodle around.

For the flip you have Solarstone themselves taking off the four on the floor beat and opting for a breakbeat and infusing slightly darker undertones to the track. It would have been an idyllic rendition to go hand in hand with the epic Atlantis Mix except they seemed to have altered the melody which leaves a weird expression once you hear that last note go down instead of up.
