My version of this has a second 'ghost' label plastered half way across the underworld remix AA side. Annoying, but no matter as the Spooky versions are clearly where it is at!

This one was the lead single lifted of Strange Cargo 3. The original is a groovy track with a mesmerising notesequence as the base of the track. Vocals was done by frequent Will Orbit collaborator Beth Orton. This one was sent out to the two big acts at the time; Underworld and labelmates Spooky.

The Spooky remixes on this one was the big dancefloor smashers and became infamous after it's inclusion on Sasha & Digger's 'Northern Exposure'. Charlie & Duncan stripped the track to it's synths & electrical skeleton and shaped two feisty trancers. The Xylem Flow version is more driving where as the Acid Bath version has more subtle tones to it.

Underworld's versions kept the original tempo and decided to just expand Orbit's productions into two big luscious tracks labelled part 1 and 2. The first rendition is essentially a big beefup, the breakbeat is removed in favour of a solid four-on-the-floor, the bass is much more accentuated and the soundscapes are big and lush. The second rendition is the opposite of the first one, a big reduction. The first version is stripped down to it's soundscapes and left the beat in half.

Orbit would also add the 'Cromer Chroma' version only for the CD-Single. On that one Orbit does a full on ambient rendition and expands Beth Orton's role to the track.

Atmospheric, trancey, beautiful, uplifting, deep, not cheesy, impeccablly produced, did I mention not cheesy?
