On the circuit now via Addicted To Trance is the labels cat.no. 013, "Shaft" by long-time Trance aficionado Ricardo Redivo which serves a massive melodious banger with his original version - epic, slightly dreamy but neither cheap nor kitschy like many of todays productions. "Shaft" is about to be appreciated by many recent Trance heads as well as by oldskoolers as many classic elements and structures are to be found here without sounding dated by any means. An additional remix is served by Mark Miguel who stretches the whole tune up to 9+ minutes and warps the whole thing into a deeper level with an ever rolling bassline, decent build-ups and an overall feel perfectly fitting amongst classics from the first wave of Trance that washed the planet somewhen in the early to mid-90s. Sweet.
