This first Mantra Vibes release was a true crowd fave back in '95, especially during the hot summer. The main theme consists of a the-sound-of-rain gimmick combined with tribalesque beats and bass, fully flavoured with some deep voiced diva inviting: "I'm here for you. I'm here to free my soul, to please you now and then, with me in the desert rain". One numerous occasions jocks just took both records in order to mix them together at the same time, creating a total new track. Probably not a cult release or whatever, nevertheless very sought-after in some mids.
