Agreed re: The Black Light Mix. Probably one of the most unique trance tracks ever made.

Like a fairly large percentage of Man With No Name's contributions to the Goa/psytrance scene, 'Floor-Essence' is probably not considered a canon example of mid-nineties Goa trance. A relentlessly bouncy, anthemic track, 'Floor-Essecence' opens with a distinctive bell intro before diving into a evenly stuctured selection of melodies and breakdowns, as well as some black guy orgasmically yelling 'mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm yesssssssssss' over various climaxes.

However, it's pretty hard not to like this track. It's so full-on and uplifting I find it hard not to grin my way through it even after what must be hundreds of times of hearing it. Serious psytrancers may scoff and return to their Eat Static LPs while nodding their heads, but the fact is 'Floor-Essence' is one hell of a choooon!!!

If you have never heard this tune, i recommend that you buy it. It is one of the more seminal tracks of the trance genre. Chances are you heard it first on the Paul Oakenfold essential mix from 1993, referred to by Pete Tong as the 'Trance-tastic Essential mix'. It is a well measured floor filler, and is a superb piece of music. A super distictive lead riff and intro bell, which has been ripped off on a couple of occasions since like most original big tracks.
