Man, I love this mix.

There's something about it. It doesn't have the absolute smoothest mixing (although it's good, with the exception of a wobbly moment going into Euxina), it doesn't feature massive anthems (with the exception of the PvD remix of '1998', which is pretty much as big a trance tune as has ever been made), and it doesn't feature manic trickery (although there's some nice cutting towards the end), but it just hangs together very well, covering a range of styles from ye olde Goa trance to hands-in-the-air Eurotrance to darker hard-driving European acid trance right through to absolutely blazing London acid techno. Plus it features M-Zone's 'Observer One' which has one of the hardest kickdrums of the 90's ... what's not to love?!?!

Good times.
