The Tek^tonik remix of this track hits the right notes for me. Although I can appreciate the Van Buren Remix, it struck me as a feeling of being stuck in a sugar coated illusion with no way out. The track wants to break out into it's liberated potential, but never quite does for me. The Tek^toniK remix hits the crescendo........

Violas Armin Van Buuren remix is one of the songs that really got me into Trance. Hearing this beast on Tiesto's Magik 6 CD just made me go really fall in love with the genre.

Wooow just wow. Viola is one of the best works of trance I think. The melody is extremely hypnotic and it is ever changing. But it is built over a very different sounding, repetitive layer. Together they sound very trippy. Sick, sick trip by moogwai. 4.17 throws you right into the deep space!!

Edit: oh fuck I just listened to the tektonik remix and it is also incredible!! That repetitive but hypnotic layer I said, tektonik release replaced that with a similarly trippy one. Put the main melody on it and the result is a mindfuck. Very spacey but also introspective.... There are even vocals for God's sake!

The tek^tonik 2005 remix of this track is where it's at. Too bad this artist faded into obscurity, because his small portfolio of work has some brilliant tracks that he created or remixed.

Not much more can be said about this release. It just about captures the zeitgeist of the peak of the trance bubble in 2000. That's not to say the track is lacking or "too mainstream", to the contrary, you have your pick of two of the finest examples of trance to be cut on vinyl.

Side A, the original mix, is at once uplifting and introspective as trance can get, with a main melody that's able to move the listener into a euphoric, yet subdued, mindset. Side B, a remix by the then-up-and-coming trance master Armin van Buuren, is more on the uplifting side than any other and is another prime example of late 1990s/early 2000s European trance sound.

There are many reasons why Oakenfold, at the prime of his popularity, picked this as one of his favorites, but it has to be heard to truly be believed. No classic trance set is complete without the inclusion of "Viola" in any form.
