  1. Stumbled on this thread yesterday. I remembered seeing the thread on tranceaddict all those years ago, and had totally forgot about it. On first listen again, it didn't really 'grab' me. But after a few plays, I love it. Because of the contrast between the guitar and keyboard. First instinct was Rocco & Heist. But they have been contacted. It could be something by Pulser. The synths give me that feeling, plus the snares and arpeggio. If it isn't by him. It could have something to do with the atcr (a trance communication release) record label, or sublabels. Defunct now, but they always churned out quality, and this tune fits their 'sound'. Mabye you could contact Tim Stark who ran the label. I think he still reviews trance for dj magazine. Might be another dead end, but you never know! As somebody said on the previous page. Paul van Dyk played it. I can totally get that, especially with the presence of that keyboard riff. Because that really fitted his playing style, especially back then. The bassline is kinda smokey. It really reminded me of Andy Lings 'Fixation' Anyway. Jules obviously thought it was a special tune because he played it last, and on Radio one. Perhaps the plug got pulled on it, after this airing. Mabye he had something to do with it because of the Ry Cooder reference. If it was scrapped due to copyright. The tune would still smash it without the guitar. Or it could just be a one off acetate, with no info, which is long gone by now. Frustrating, because the track is a little gem.
  2. Thoroughly enjoyed this set from Jules. First time i've heard it actually, and downloaded it as soon as i seen the tracklist. His mixing and timing are bang on throughout. Makes this flow perfectly and keeping the energy high. But what makes this mix great, is the programming. Techy and hard in the middle as well. Must have been great to listen to this at the time. Always great to hear 'Out Of The Blue' as well. 'Day Mission' not heard that one before. Tunage
  3. Amazing set. Ferry on Fire..... A special mention goes to Ferry's opening gambit on this mix. Impact 'Inspiration' [In Trance We Trust] Only discovered this last year. What a TUNE!
  4. I can remember this as if it was yesterday. Two heavy hitters of the Trance scene, both at the top of their game. Covering for Jules. Ferry's mix is just amazing from start to finish. Plenty of flow and energy to it. Lost Horizon, is so Dutch Trance, you would think it was his own production. A bit of Prog trance, techy trance and uplifting stuff to boot. Much like his 2 hour mix on Jules show in March 2000. van Dyk's mix is also good. He's always been my favourite dj, but his mix falls short of Ferry's here. I think his timing is off. But the tunes are absolute class. Still have this on cassette somewhere. Good memorys, good times . The Gate IV 'Give All You Got' (Gate Mix) [Go For It!]
  5. I remember listening to a recording of this round a mates house. He recorded the show on cassette. It was Jules sitting in for Dave Pearce on Dance Anthems. My mate didn't record the whole show, just tunes he liked the sound of. I can remember him playing Ayla, then this tune you are on about. I can remember Jules saying during the outro, i quote "Radio one dance anthems with me Judge Jules, chirpy and quirky" A very catchy number. I have always wanted to ID it. I would say, tail end of 1998.
