A track ill always associate with the techno legend that is Dave Angel, remember him opening a set at Dreamscape 6 (28th May 1993) with this beauty, love the tingling of the keys, dj vertigo ended a few of his sets in the mid 90s with this aswell (just playing the intro out).
Mark Ryans remix is good but for some reason is not dj friendly, the beats are all over the place, anyone else have problems mixing this version?

I think I read somewhere that this was originally called 'Gravitational Arch of Io' but a typo was made when the original promos were manufactured and the track name of 'Gravitational Arch of 10' stuck. Dunno if there's any truth behind it or not but it's still a classic track from the 90's.

Just found this and listened to it over, over and over. For a release in 1993 it's a very unique and pioneering sound that is void of all the well defined (and sometimes boring) styles of the present day. I wasn't into this sound much back then but now I think this is a real gem. The Vapour Treatment side is good, more of a full on trip rather than the floaty style of the Original Version, of which the intro and cadenza brings shivers to the senses. A top tune that is very well made for its day. +1 to the previous reviewer.

A stone cold classic that sits agreeably amongst those into techno, trance, or progressive house. This really is one of those elite tracks that stands out a mile from all else and makes for pleasurable home listening as well.

You could almost be forgiven for thinking that some of the production maybe sounds a little dated. Get yourself a decent music set up and you'll be forced to re-evaluate that thought. The bass is immense and will have your neighbours banging down your door - probably to enquire where they can get a copy for themselves.

This track has proved to be a huge influence, not least on the Platipus record label, and certainly anybody wishing to produce music should track this down as a reference point.

'The Vapour Treatment' version is a more dancefloor friendly version in so far as it doesn't feature the long winding intro. When the original is so amazing, who needs a remix anyway?

Great review, and one of the reasons why I bought this track. You are absolutely right in that the production does not sound dated at all. You can DEFINITELY rock a club with this track today, bar none! Thanks for the recommendation!
