Fabulous track, I heard it for the first time in Cafe d'Anvers, Belgium in 1993 I guess and they played it as very last track of the evening (morning). People thought the party was over, a nice ambient tune to close and then ... boum. The crowd was going wild.
Best closure ever ...

Gravitational Arch Of 10....23 years ago it was spinned on the famous Hellraiser SZ Amsterdam party, finally i got it in my collection now...still an amazing tune.
Label is wrongly pressed. ''Other Side'' must be ''This Side'' by Gravitational Arch Of 10.

THIS IS TRANCE. Not thought in the german way but in the deepest meaning of the word. Translated into electronic music, it is meant to explore the realms of your mind and/or your body. I could listen to the intro for hours without getting bored and when the bass and drums beginn you will be picked up for a ride through dimensions. Masterpiece 4ever!

I hate the fact alot of people only started listened to techno when they started taking drugs and even more baffling was the how they stopped listening to it when they stopped taking drugs.
That said in 93 when the rave scene had pretty much completely crossed over into the mainstream this track sorted out the crowd very fast.
Most djs played it from the very start and I remember seeing all the confused weekend ravers disappear from the dancefloor and all the true lovers of techno embrace it, everyone swaying for side to side during the winding start that felt like it lasted forever and provided the crowd with a breather whilst still being completely engaged.
And holy christ when that (slightly odd) kick drum loop finally came pounding in it always felt like your skin was being torn & ripped from your body...........or was that just me?
I'm glad to have been a part of the
time in music when this stuff was getting played.

Absolutely brilliant tune, and the sirens at the start can still have the effect of tossing a firework into a barrel of gunpowder, on the right dancefloor. One of the sounds of summer '93.

Rumor has it that the name of this track was intended to be "Gravitational Arch of Io", like the moon orbiting Jupiter. Rich read it wrong and thought it said 10. So, Mark's most recognized track is mis-spelled. Go figure.
