      The Barracuda and Jam & Spoon remixes are the cream on this release. The others are ok, but just don't have that same magical rave quality of the two aforementioned.

          STELLA is such a classic that it seems redundant to sing its praises. With its solid beat and the emotive synths that reverberate in one's soul (not to mention the breathy voice, imploring, 'Hold me, love me'), the original is a deeply-felt track that deserve every bit of receives. Moby's "Barracuda Mix" doesn't differ from the original in terms of melodic content with the exception of a new vocal sample and some piano chords, as well as adding a mellower set of percussion for a more chilled experience, while his "Electro Mix" takes those same elements and goes slightly deeper, varying the rhythmic patterns into a 2-minute long build before the 4/4 kicks in. Jam & Spoon's own remix adds a tinkling line like water droplets, as well as some deeper elements, and, more surprisingly goes totally ambient for its second half. Finally, Frank de Wulf's mix straddles the line between hard and soft, but keeping the feet firmly on the floor. There's no denying: Stella is still stellar.

            this is a very good example for the genre that is a hybrid of chicago house, ambient, industrial and detroit techno.

              Dance and electronic music has been widely criticised from a number of angles for its apparent lack of emotion and soul. But the Original Mix of 'Stella' is tantalising, provocative and music at its most sensuous, regardless of genre categorisation. From the onset, the track is underpinned by gorgeous, seductive swathes of synth that bristle then soften alternately, in combination with nimble, insistent yet playful piano keys that contribute an additional layer to the sound. Once the track breaks, the gentle, appealingly whispered "hold me, love me" vocals are seamlessly integrated on top of the track's numerous layers of sound, bringing with them an increased sonic perception of passion and sensuality. Dark, brooding, intense and uncompromisingly passionate, the Original Mix of 'Stella' is the musical manifestation of the deepest of human desires.

                The silver side label says that the tracks should be played at 45rpm. However, play the black side "Barracuda Mix" at 33rpm and you get a beautiful, mellow, blissed-out track with dreamy vocals that sounds much more akin the Stella I remember from back in the day.

                  A gentle classic and a very different twist on the sound steadily emerging from Germany, circa '92.
                  With this simple, elegant, messy, roll your eyes back, grind yer teeth, sweaty palms in the air anthem of a song that wouldn't sound entirely out of place next to something by Tangerine Dream. This is how trance came to be. A sound being explored by several others at the time but nothing else hit with such a huge impact as Stella.
                  How many one night stands and/or couples emerged out of the "Hold me, Love me" cocoon of this one?
                  Bring the love indeed!
                  Moby's Electro mix is pure floor to ceiling delirium. Where the original mix and the Jam & Spoon remix capture the essence of that gentle warm feeling of MMMMMMM and the sigh. The Electro mix captures that pounding heart 'gnar gnar' gaffled panting sweaty armpit feeling quite well. A steady climber with rolls and waves of snares that are sure to compound the affect when used properly.

                    'Stella' still stands as one of the greatest classics of the genre in history. Deep, minimal hypnotic trance with a very sensual climax, it was released in 1992 on Renaat Vandepapelière's R&S label. Almost instantly, it invaded the dancefloors worldwide to reach the Pantheon of underground club classics beauties.
                    Rolf Ellmer (Jam El Mar) & Markus Löffel aka Mark Spoon, which had met in the early 90s, decided to rent a studio and work on music for their new project. Before Mark arrived that day, Jam El Mar started to elaborate the main synth lines of Stella. He used an Oberheim XPander, and also the Roland System 700 for the beeps sound, an Akai S-1000 sampler (from which came the guitar sound of its presets), and the Roland TR-909 for the beats. Stella's vocals came from a singer they knew from Darmstadt, Taya. The rest is history.
                    The title came as a suggestion from Mark, because of his girlfriend's name. Years later, Jam El Mar would give the name to his daughter.
