Netherworld Is Heaven On Earth
This is an awe-inspiring example of what was so right with trance music when it was still its heyday albeit towards the end. As we all know it has since become too commercial and pop with some notable exceptions. I first encountered it on In Search of Sunrise 4 (which some might argue was a manifestation of that creeping commercialism and popularization). This late old-school trance track from 2005 is Oliver Prime's remix of Oliver Lieb's side project LSG's "Netherworld." Lieb originally cut it on vinyl in 1996 which you can listen to HERE. That was from a time when trance was nascently coming into its own largely within the underground rave scene. I prefer the more polished sound of this later version which is on the player below.
