Every MP3 FTC creates brings him closer to Vince Clark! First impressions are very promising: beautiful arpeggio, exciting sounds, great pads. The breakbeat kicks in, and you think... hmmm, what's going on here? But the piece survives. I'm not sure it was necessary, but it doesn't repel. The lead when it comes in sneaks under the radar and is a bit subdued. However, it comes into its own when the breakbeat stops, and you get an absolutely gorgeous melange of sound: arpeggio, piano, filtered pads, lead and other amazing stuff. Then the breakbeat accompanies a great pan-flute instrument which manages to avoid sounding 'cheesey'. This part is maybe a bit overlong, but it leads into another quite magnificent quiet bit. We had no right to expect a tune this basic to sound this good. A mini masterpiece. A must-download. Pure quality, and from such an unexpected SID!.
