It's a nice simple package, with just Original and Radio mixes

Afterworld Recordings have a steadfast record for putting out some massive trance releases over the years, and with their new signing Thomas Lee they just may have another monster on their hands.

The track itself means business from the first bar, with a banging consisting of a rubbery noise and a thumping kick, which quickly builds with extra percussion and a snare roll into the main section of the track. This has crunching acidic noises, an arpeggiated riff and a simple bassline which takes to you to the breakdown with the arpeggiated riff running through it, and adds risers, snare rolls and an abundance of energy which is what this track is all about. It's simple yet highly effective and is a real crowd-mover that just begs to be played loud through a quality soundsystem, so that you can feel the sound as well as hear it. That's where tracks like these really come to life: in front of a big crowd of trance lovers who will appreciate its subtle goodness.

A Radio Mix is also included, which should stand it in good stead with the amount of quality trance radio shows that there are in the world. But for dancefloor play, the Original Mix is the one (obviously).
