    most probably my most played TP 12s ever. Dan Ryan that is. From the underground basement one offs in Berlin and Frankfurt end of the 90s to big floors. madness always , all the way. long before everyone needing and waiting for that "drop" . one of those 3am moments, red lights only. DJ not on a stage, but somewhere right in between the dancing crowd. always

      Wow, shocked at people not digging this mix of Walking Through the Sky. Might not kill it in the club, but at home it's sublime.

        I can really get the point to repress records having a huge demand. It makes the music available to those who missed the record at it's time and it gains some money for the artist as well. Nothing wrong with this.
        What I can't get is that collectible records are repressed one-to-one, making it unpossible to distinguish wether it's original press or repress. This just destroys the collectible appeal of the record and finally the development of prices. Bad luck for those who purchased the original for a huge amount of money just to find out that exactly the same record can be bought for the regular price a little time later. Changing the design of the label would solve this situation as it happen to be done on represses before. This here is just ridiculous from a collector's point of view!

          To echo the previous review. This mix of 'Walking Thru Sky' is forgettable. Sorry. I know the die hard fans or 'completeists' that must own everything may have a contrary opinion.

          "Dan Ryan" however, is a prized possession. A deep meditation of a track that can also kick ass on a dance floor.

          Thankful for the accompanying video. Not much else to say. Just listen.

            This mix of "Walking Thru the Sky" is pretty much highly unnecessary and is really one of the very very few Theo jams I don't care for. However, "Dan Ryan" is the jam. One of Theo's most subtle but effective jams, all it is is a beat, a melodic bassline, and some congas. Very minimal, but warm and beautiful as well. Play this one at the peak of your set and watch people go nuts.
