Fantastic tune! But of course it's techno - what else would it be?

It was also big with trance and hard dance dj's. I've seen a few techno revisionists claim it's not techno, presumably because it isn't just a drum loop that repeats for 5 minutes...

Yeah I'd think of it as a trance tune. On the darker techier side of old trance, but i think the riff and the general production of it has more in common with old trance than techno. But of course back then the two styles were much closer.

Just checked and Discogs lists it as hard trance. So that's FACT ;)

Oh and agreed about that X-313 remix, that's one of my favourites too. I love the chunky kicks.

Anyway:

:lol: Discogs also lists it as 'Acid' and 'Downtempo' so there you go!
It also lists Thomas Heckmann as "Techno Producer from Mainz, Germany".


I appreciate that it may have been a 'cross-over' kind of tune.
