Its been a while since we’ve had any post 2000 hardcore around these parts and before you all start running for the door thinking I mean Happy Hardcore, hold up. No, when I say post 2000 hardcore, im referring to the heavily trance drenched, hard house, pounding style of the likes of Sharkey and Scott Brown. For example, this is a perfect demonstration on how to take an average Trance tune from one of the bigger trance acts of the day and kick it into overdrive. Ferry Corsten did the original and it is a great track in its own right. A fantastic riff, nice and atmospheric.
However, stacked next to this reimagining from UFO, the original just sounds so tepid. This version is a no holds barred, F5, swirling maelstrom of hard as fuck synth led hardcore techno trance. Its probably the first track I heard back then that had me venture back to that part of the scene that for so long had been dominated by that horrific toytown techno sound. An absolute banger!
