Following on from 2002's excellent Punk, Ferry Corsten returns with a record that has been doing dancefloor damage throughout 2003 on the club scene, and now its finally reached the UK shores.
The style is similar to Punk's tough, acidy fuzz, but the clear-cut break-beats and trancy melody have been dropped. The track is faster than a standard FC tune, and more of a crowd pleaser. The vocoded lyrics go well with a typical Ferry bassline, and the main riff is very infectious. The beat is bassy as you'd expect, although the clap is less defined that usual.
Positiva have done excellent work again with this single, giving us 5 mixes and the video. The Edit is perfect for radio play, while the Extended Mix goes down well in a club. The Azure Remix from hard dance regular Paul Maddox is a slightly faster and tougher mix. Moby's mix is much as you'd expect while the third remix takes the breakbeat route, while keeping the vibe of the original.
As expectations for Ferry's new album mount up, this tune has been heard everywhere recently, and I fully expect a top 20 chart mention. Maximum respect to Corsten for once again innovating and stretching the tired trance scene into new areas.

This is the second track to be produced by the supreme Dutch dj/producer under his own name, his first being 'Digital Punk' in 2001.Ferry was rated as one of the top 10 dj's in the world by DJ magazine readers poll 2004. He has produced/ remixed many other tracks under different guises for past seven years. Ferry was responsible for making Trance the biggest genre back in 1999- ferry is probably best remembered for the Remix of Barber's Adagio for Strings (William Orbit).
Since then his productions have developed with the times- this track showcasing the 80's/ punk influence whilst managing to remain true to his dance origins with this killer track. I first heard it back in september '03 when I caught him playing at the Arches in Glasgow. The track went down a treat, and has remained to do so till this date where even more people manage to hear it through commercial radio stations such as daytime Radio 1 aswell as in clubs around the world. I have yet to hear the remixes, but look forward to Moby's version who is an excellent producer known worldwide.
