[RWD] Activa vs. Revolution 9 – The Fall

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.

A couple of years back, before the visual refresh, the folks at Borderline posted a video teasing the soon to happen change in artwork treatment. The background song was particularly noteworthy, but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out its name. Although there was a familiar vibe to the arrangement, the title eluded me, so a couple of days ago, I decided to get busy searching. I figured it was best to start at the beginning of Borderline’s back catalogue, and joy of joys, I landed exactly on what I was looking for.

The result of a collaboration between the then sole owner or Borderline, Rob ‘Activa’ Stevenson and Dave ‘Revolution 9’ Parkinson, the track reflected both producers’ desire to blend the best of tech with the beautifully melodic component of trance. The Fall was their method of expressing that desire, with a stunning end result. The proof lies in the fact that half a decade later, this tech trance peak timer still manages to reel you in with its powerful kicks and delightfully gritty acid line. If you’re still not convinced, the melody in the break offers a final impulse to seal the deal. For fans of the classic Discover sound, the man himself, mr. John Askew was on hand to deliver a terrific rework of Rob & Dave’s collab, so if you’re curious, check it out here.

As you’ve probably figured out, I’ve chosen the original to highlight in this post, but you’re more than welcome to wrap your ears around John’s version via the link above. Until next week, enjoy The Fall:
