Both sides of this do something totally different, the kay cee mix is typical stephen bodzin stuff, just listen to his other tracks in the guise of mojave, van gott etc and you'll hear what i mean, progressive to the core, they tend to play this mix on skys Clubland music channel. On the flip Gouryella takes this to another level, many trance jocks played the paul van dyk mix but this mix beats that hands down for me, you cant but help pitch this up to +6 when you play it out. This track along with countless others such as veracocha - carte blanche, babe instinct - disco babes from outer space etc catapulted trance into the millennium in 1999. Its rise was sadly also its downfall as after 2000 trance music and indeed positiva tended to be corralled into the pen of "cheese" and "same old hands in the air stuff" and so vanished from many record shelves for eternity. So if not anything else this [for me personally] is a slice of trance history. so id recommend holding onto this, its not cheese as far as im concerned even if it was plastered on all those crap mix trance cds and played by Seb Fontaine, Judge Jules and Brandon Block.
Yes, I can swing with a bit of progressive trance now and then. And to my mind, the Gouryella remix of 1998/1999 is the best, aside from the possible exception of the original 1998 (which, to be fair, is a very different kind of trance track from most of the numerous remixes that followed). A good, driving bassline and a rich, lush pad incarnation of the main melody give the Gouryella version a highly euphoric feel. If you can deal with the long breakdown---which, as a trance-head back in the day, I certainly could---you are rewarded with an explosion of classic trance exuberance. This one really brings back memories. Great stuff.
