The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
Although it might seem strange to some, ReWind is probably the thing I enjoy most writing for on VS. That’s not to say that the newer releases aren’t great too, but there’s something about these older tracks, something that the newer ‘wave’ of trance listeners might not be exposed to, yet. Through this series, I’m doing my part to showcase a small number of these older musical gems. With that said, onward to today’s recommendation.
This week’s pick is a track from Body-Shock‘s discography, a duo initially made up of Bjorn Luc Frieda Wendelen (aka DJ Ghost) and Laurent Christian Georges Véronnez (aka L-Vee, Airwave). From 2001 on, it was comprised of L-Vee and Yves Deruyter.
Taken off their second EP, released under the UK branch of Bonzai Records, Full Moon is a trance production to the core, with a heavy baseline, well-defined kicks and the all-important super-saw. It was released in 2000, in a period that many describe as the golden age of trance, since a lot of today’s classics come from that late 90s-early 2000s time frame. Honestly, no matter what your opinion is about the previous statement, Full Moon is as enjoyable now as it was nearly 15 years ago. Frankly, that’s no small feat.
There’s no use in making this article longer than it has to be. For your listening pleasure, here’s the original mix of Full Moon, by Body-Shock:
Country: UK / Style: Trance / Year: 2000 / Label: Bonzai Records UK
