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.
Regardless of your opinion about what Armin van Buuren is producing these days, there’s no denying that he is one of the key names that helped popularize the genre. This popularization came about because of the international success of Blue Fear, followed soon after by the track in focus this week.
Communication was released in July 1999 under Cyber Records and acted as a strong impulse to Armin’s career, with his original version reaching number 18 in the UK Singles Chart, a year later. The success could be credited to the track’s straightforward and rather sparse structure, with echoed piano notes and an epic lead syth that gave it the unmistakable sound of turn of the century trance. In many ways, it’s obvious as Communication progresses, that the accent was not merely put on the sounds themselves, but rather on the atmosphere they created, inducing the ‘trance-like’ state that gave the genre its name.
Without further ado, here’s the near 10 minute original mix of Armin van Buuren, Communication:
Country: The Netherlands / Style: Trance / Year: 1999 / Label: Cyber Records
