    Lange's Sunset Dub is something different. Such an amazing piece. The breakdown is just perfect. One of my all time favourites.

      An essential piece of wax for every (pure) Trance lovers.
      Both mixes express at the top the power and energy of an amazing era. I imagine myself DJ in 2001/02 spinning this record with the audience in totally euphoria!
      The Original mix is a real club stormer: the sounds are perfect in every moment and the voice of Skye give more intensity at the track.
      But if the Original is perfect, the Lange's Sunset Dub mix is also better: pratically the same basic sounds (including the powerfull bass) of the main track but with real atmospheric touch. Perfect for a simple relaxing listening or, like recent suggests, to close your set with a touch of magic.

        Alright - I'm a little embarrassed to say it, but I discovered Lange through Konami's Dance Dance Revolution arcade game. After hearing the song in-game I just had to get my hands on the wax. Lange's production on this release is phenomenal. Every synth, every percussion pattern just works perfectly. The lead motif is wisely sampled in the beginning, moving the listener to the edge of their seat waiting for what's to come next. Before that, Skye's vocals are inserted. And wow.. Vocal trance can often come across as corny or lame but these lyrics have a bit of power to them like a tug to your shirt saying "Hey, pay attention - trance history is being made here!" The main melody strikes around the 3:00 mark [I think] with delicious analog basses guaranteed to make any club pump. The Sunset Dub isn't quite as good as the Original, but killer_gekko made a good observation that it would make a fabulous outro, especially if you were playing on the Ibiza beach. This one has now become one of my secret weapons. Get it, you won't regret it.

          I think this is a fantastic tune. Usually I'm not a fan of Lange's production work and I think his strength remains in remixes, but this has to stand out as one of his best. The Original Mix has a very Lange feel to it, the usual moog basses and envelope-cut sawtooth synths, but the better mix for me is the Sunset Dub, this takes a relaxed feel that would make a nice outro in a mix.
