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.
By know you must’ve figured out my preference for the older trance sound, so the continuation of the ReWind series should come as no shock. What should also not surprise any of you is that I’m once more featuring one of my favourite artists form the ‘goldern era’, so to speak.
Although The Thrillseekers is arguably Steve Helstrip’s most well known alias, it was far from his only one. Among the others, he was also known as En Motion, and it’s from the back catalogue of this exact alias that I’ve selected this week’s classic feature.
Truth was released 15 years ago in the UK under Incentive offshoot IDJ and, in the same year, in Belgium under Xtra Nova. The EP included Steve’s original and an equally classy version from Andrew Edward Perring aka Pulser. I spent a few days listening to both versions and I have a pretty good idea which of the two I prefer.
I want to make it clear that the original is as awesome as a track can be, but something has drawn me more towards the AA side. Maybe it’s the more pronounced lead and base, or maybe it’s the exquisitely done acid line. Frankly, a good acid line is something always worth noting in my book.
Check it out below, and see you next week. 🙂
