One of my very dearest vinyls in my collection. I have been in love with this song for years, I'm still in love with it, and I will forever be... The Rank 1 Remix is 200% flying away in happiness beyond description... a powerful build up with lovely instruments, which must treat nature, surely! Then there's this special break until those fat strings reach their fullest pride, and after that... dancing between the hurricanes!!! After a while those summery synths assist the main lead again... then it simply becomes too much for me and I just CUM :-).

After I had heard the A-side, I didn't even bother listening properly to the other tracks, at first. (Obviously I did so later on.) Well, the original mix is very different, but without any doubt equal in quality. A little bit slower and steadier (134 bpm), it sets out with a man passionately, calmly talking about ... "the reachers of civilization". Again, a very rich musical background, emotional, seductive, but more a track to listen to than to dance to. I noticed that the original mix differs a lot from the A-side's (that's positive), only some samples and instruments remind of the other side.

Regarding the Push Remix, I can keep it short. M.I.K.E.'s productions are ;roughly speaking; always okay (and very often amazing) but in this case the latter doesn't apply. Technically well-produced (as usual), beyond reproach, BUT... no magic, a little bit too standard if you compare it to the 2 masterpieces: THE Original and the Rank 1 Remix.
