This track is epic. I like how the melody grows and gets more and more intense here, a wonderful fusion of house and techno.
This is a great example of real classic house music. With its amazingly positive vibes it still makes me happy when i listen to it again today after all the years.
One of the biggest tunes of the last decade. A track which works fantastic in the club but its also a pleasure to listen to it on the couch at home. And it’s so pop you can not get it out of your head anymore …
Masssive groove, great house pianos and a pushing organic bassline are the foundation and this incredible female soul sample is the cherry on top.
MKs magic moved Storm Queens great Original Tune into an even bigger Classic House Anthem, fantastic!
