Starting with the Ambient Mix, this version will flood your mind with deep dark emotions and unsettling feelings. The chill sounds are mixed with a subtle bass line, enhancing the whole experience. It is indeed an actual experience. All these ingredients meet the special voice to create a very unique relaxed but sinister song. Chill out mixes are always easy to listen any time you need some relaxation; but this one goes into the dark places as well, do not miss it!
The Club Mix shows since the very beginning the incredible amount of quality hidden within its sounds. The progression of the melody is supported by the bass line since the first beat, performing a gorgeous introduction and creating the expectation for the breakdown. This break starts adding a subtle atmosphere, giving the melody all the leadership. Some voices are added to enhance the ambience but it is the magic of the melody which carries out the best performance, leading also the rise of the tension. A new melody appears right after the explosion and a second breakdown awaits for us with a higher presence of the beautiful vocals. Very complex work of production to achieve this unique gem of Trance music. Well deserved congratulation by the producers for this huge masterpiece!
When listening to the Changes remix we find a great introduction by an intense vocal part, which gives way to the dark bass line with an immense power. The path to the breakdown is well surrounded by subtle and mysterious sounds, achieving a stunning mystic atmosphere. It is hard to describe how well the breakdown comes and releases its acid sound with that marvelous voice, it is simply awesome the non-conventional style the remixer has chosen, and the result is just unbeatable. Get ready to enjoy with a rush of emotions, from the darkest to the brightest; all surrounded by a dark ambience and an energetic bassline. Massive work by Changes, congratulations mate!
The last remix we find is the one signed by Stephane Badey, and his remix goes very high into the wildness scale. This is something Stephane knows very well how to do; which is giving a supreme power to the bass line and a very deep atmosphere to the whole mix, and this is exactly what we find on this remix. We find ourselves into a rollercoaster of a vast power, where acid sounds are mixed with crazy changes and a mystic and haunting voice. The result is an overwhelming sensation of freedom, feeling how the uplifting soul runs wildly through our veins. A magical achievement of the true production skills. You always surprise us Stephane!
