“1998 was the year I started to play music. On Christmas Day my parents gifted me a bass guitar and that changed my whole life.Fast forward to 2005 when I started to produce Electronic Music, I was really into Psytrance and Trance music. I discovered Binary Finary’s ‘1998’ and it became an instant classic and a favorite. I always dreamt of remixing the original track as it has influenced me so much throughout the years,” said Victor Ruiz about his remix
Victor’s immaculate remix guides this historic trance number into darker, techno waters with the use of rolling percussion and a dominant kick. Heartily championed by the likes of Joseph Capriati, Adam Beyer, Armin van Burren, Vintage Culture, Enrico Sangiuliano and ANNA, Victor’s massive tech-trance rendition is a classic reincarnation that’s ideal for that late-night, apex moment; tried and tested at some of the globe’s biggest events and festivals.
Tethered to the anthemic spirit of its counterpart through its emblematic trance riffs, the peak-time edit is warmly welcomed by a techno community that has eagerly awaited its arrival over the summer months.
