  1. This is great news, and great work burien and andy. I have found a track of his on youtube called. A.M.P 'The Future Is Ours' Just after the 4 and half minute mark when those synths take hold, you can definitely hear similarities with the mystery tune. Wonder why 'Future Is Ours' got released and the Lush tune didn't?
  2. Hope this post is allowed mods. If not then i apologise. Does anybody know the name, or recognise this track PvD played. Track 6 on his mix from radio BU Israel 31/12/2000. It sounds very familiar. Not played again, or by anybody else as far as I'm aware. It sounds like a PvD remix or production, which was Unreleased. Real nice track whatever it is. Have a listen guys and see what you think.
  3. @FuzzY-LogiC Tim was reviewing trance in dj magazine at that time (still does) So i thought he may have heard it before. Or at least provide clues. This track fits perfectly in the style of his label, and he really liked it. He knew what Andy Perring, Steve Helstrip & Lange were creating at that time. So i think we can safely discount those three artists. Because the tune is quality, surely he would have played it again in a set further down the line. But this is the last we hear of it, and he is the only one known to have played it. Rumours PvD played it. But it would have flagged up on one of his many tracklists/sets. He would have been top of every mailing list though. Jules has got to be involved in it. Probably didn't play it again due to injunction. (Bah, everytime i re-listen to it again - it gets stuck in my head for ages!)
  4. I managed to talk to the trance editor of dj magazine, and former boss of Atcr records regarding this tune. He said. "I wish you hadn't played me that, i don't know what it is, but i want it. Thats a great track whatever it is. I don't think its by Pulser, but he was famous for not finishing tracks. What a tune, that's going to be in my head all night. Would seem odd for him to finish a set with a tune like that in 2000, and not know who was behind it. Which makes me think he does. But that vibe of track, there are only 5-10 candidates. (I mentioned the producers who have been emailed). He stuck alot to the Uk trance sound. So lots of respective artists, he didn't play, he is very money orientated, not straying from his buds tunes. ie Agnelli & Nelson, Matt Darey etc. It could be something Jules had ready to go to Serious or Manifesto, but they flat out refused to clear the Ry Cooder sample. Cooder isnt niche in the mainstream, but in dance music, he is as niche as it gets. So if Jules was talking about him in a mag, then thats good detective work by somebody. Then he larger rather than smaller behind it. With Jules being a legal man, it could have been injuncted, and he didnt think it was worth the bother. He had just gone Top 10 with Pitchin' so had moved on from making trance by then, and Hi-Gate was his main focus. However, you Don't debut a track like that in a position like that, and not be looking to make a wave. Its a top tune 5 out of 5. The sample, is genious. But the supporting production is really strong, i can hear some of 'Plastic Dreams' in the break, and the acid is really subtle. Which could be some important clues. No way it's Pulser though 100%. Because Steve, Andy, Lange and i knew what was on eachothers hard drives, as we were on the phone everyday, playing and listening to demos. So no way he would have secretly pipelined a demo to jules. He only met Jules after 2003, after doing My Religion. Nothing makes complete sense about it. But there could be some ego mixed in there to. Im sure sitting on top of a secret tune like that, can't be, lets say an uncomfortable feeling!
  5. That is an excellent job. I tip my hat to whoever created it.
  6. Finally bought this on wax last month for £40. Quite cheap now seeing as most copys are up for sale at £80+
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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!]
  11. 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.
