    Love this track, total classic on a label full of classics (Limbo). Got a query though if anyone can give any more info on this. The standard Limbo release (LIMBO 007) Euro Mix has elements of 'Tears for Fears - Change', not exactly the same but maybe, for example, the sample has been chopped up.
    There's an Italian release of Ethnic Prayer which also includes the Euro Mix:
    ...but this has the full 'Tears for Fears - Change' melody or is a straight sample. Also, the arrangement of the Euro Mix on the Italian release is noticeably different and is slightly longer.
    So my question is, does anyone know of another earlier Limbo release, for example a demo 12", which has the full sample in? All i can think of is that they might have changed it to avoid paying royalties or so they didn't get prosecuted for copyright infringement. Which does happen, usually there's a white label with full samples then the commercial release is slightly different to avoid the issues i've just mentioned. Cheers, Mikey.

      Great track all the mixes on the 12" are worth a listen, but for me I would go for the "Euro Mix", from the moment the synth drops you know its going to be a big tune and it doesn't disappoint. The "Doggie Style Dub" is in a similar vein the the "Euro Mix", but the "Transacid Mix" follows more of a trance vibe which again is a very solid mix. Have a listen & take your pick.

        CLASSIC TRACK! Remember the Euro mix from the old school SF Bay Area rave days of the early 1990's
        Samples the song "Change" from Tears for Fears.

          The Transacid mix has a bit of the early proto goa sound. Very nice track.
