I first heard the DJ Tiesto remix of Lost Witness, 'Did I Dream (Song to the Siren)' on the Ministry of Sound web-radio station and fell in love with it. I opened my post today and hoped I would enjoy the song as much as I had the first, and only time, I'd heard it.
Talk about falling in love all over again! Shivers would be an understatement.
The solid trance builds to a point where the ethereal vocals - somewhere between Dot Allison (One Dove), Enya and Ian Van Dahl, come into play AND then the whole song takes on a magic all of it's own. Haunting, memorable, uplifting, mesmerising and unique, it is all these things and more.
The sum of more than its parts, in an era of pre-fab trance and one hit wonders, 'Did I Dream' is more than a beautiful musical score with the hook of wonderful female vocals - combined it is almost tear inducing (and I don't cry a easily!).
Give it a chance, it deserves to be HUGE.
