“11 years and hundreds of remixes later I’m still getting amazing Longest Road remixes and mashups and this is one of my favs! Matt Fax stacked the original acapella over his instrumental and the result is mesmerizing deep progressive mix that absolutely thumps.”
“This version came to life in a hotel in Japan before a gig. I was playing around with the acapella and put it on my track ‘To The Ground’, then played it. People loved it so much that I’ve kept on playing it in every set. I felt it was matching so perfectly!”
