Nico's Original Mix intros with a pulsing bassline and mesmerizing pad that rises up alongside an ethereal arpeggio. Nice and chunky kick drums lead the drum arrangement as slicing hi hats join shuffling percussive elements creating a steady rhythmic flow. The track digs deep, luring us in with subtle melodic tones that captivate and intrigue. Gated synths greet us on the break adding an extra dynamic to the sound. A moderately tense affair with cascading themes and a hypnotic prowess that is not to be missed.
Tom Wax is on remix duties for this one, dishing out a fine slice for the floors. His last effort here was alongside fellow producer Dan Hillson on their I Believe I Can which performed very well indeed. Tom has always been a leading figure in the electronic music scene in Germany since 1988, he has also inspired a lot of DJ's and producers around the world with his unique sound. After more than 25 years behind the DJ booth he is still on a mission as he releases tracks on labels such as Great Stuff, Toolroom, CR2, Bitten, Bush, Suara, Armada Deep, Toca 45 and Phuture Wax. At the height of the European techno and trance era, Tom was responsible for a vast number of classics under his Arpeggiators, Microbots and DJ Tom & Norman guises. His tracks found their home on R&S, Harthouse and Overdrive Records. He partnered with Thorsten Adler on AWeX and found international fame with It's Our Future on Plastic City. On the remix here, Tom delivers his take on the original theme with a dramatic flair and an epic touch. With a pounding beat at the fore and delicately poised arps bringing in a melodic touch, an offset bass adds movement, bringing a classic twist to the sound. Gritty, elongated stabs stand out which will definitely put this one on the peak time playlists.
