A master release from the master of Tech. This was my favourite track from his album "Tecktonick" so I was overjoyed when I discovered this would get a release and especially overjoyed when I was able to obtain it!

The original is complete awesomeness and contains a very catchy mid-section which seems like a chorus but is used in a very progressive way. It seems to be quite influenced by a House riff which is hardly surprising as the man himself has said: 'House is a feeling'.

Leon Bolier (or as I used to mis-spell his surname: Boiler!) has given the original a deeper and techier feel. With an intro that is very similar to some of the Tech House I've heard before. This version just ladles on more and more techy sounds as it progresses which has an awesome effect on it's sound. He still keeps the chorusy part from the original and interprets it in his own way, as you should if you're a remixer!

The release follows a similar style to Vardran's "Lightform" but this particular kind of Tech is executed in a much greater way. It's a good kind of progressive, in my opinion. Not too looped, always changing layers and sounds. The length of Bolier's mix seems about right but I think the original should've been a bit longer. Of course, I would say that!!
