The remix shook dance floors when it dropped, people knew what was coming when those piano notes were playing. Sound of the future was out of this world. A mighty jungle "12"

Heard mix 2 before the infamous piano version on the Ratty set from Dreamscape 16. Thought it was a gd tune, and pretty original with the reversed vocals but nothing special .. Then a few months later the one with the Love story intro started getting played everywhere (most notably Jungle fever wild cat's back) and was even appeared on Jungle mania 3 mixed by Grooverider. It instantly became an anthem, and after countless remixes, still retains its place in the jungle Hall of fame... Not sure if this is true, but apparently the piano version was actually a special just for Groove rider but got such a strong reaction that it got it's own release

the b side is one of the first jungle tunes i ever heard back in 95 on Dream FM whilst on a trip to London

i also remember hearing it at my first jungle rave World Dance at The Void and when the MC asked everyone to light their lighters when the vocal came in the whole place erupted

uplifting due to that amazing piano, yet ruff and tuff. imo this track is exactly how jungle should be

10/10

This version is slightly different to the original release.. It has a shorter piano intro (only 16 bears whereas the original was 32) & has an extra pad / violin kinda sound in the background when the beats kick in. At the time this version came out, the original was almost impossible to come by, & if you were lucky enough to find a copy you'd be at least 30 quid lighter afterwards (no pun intended ;) It did me at the time until I eventually found a copy of the 1st press for a decent sum, which, to me, is definitely the better version.
