    He played this a while ago in Bournemouth and I thought it sounded pretty sick, not so sure now....

    Doesn't do much for me. Agree with this guy on youtube though;

    Eek, clip just finished - mix in the last few seconds doesn't sound too nice. :teeth:

    Kinda like the intro but not too sure about that main section. Yeh, that synth just doesn't work.

    Might be an early unfinished version though. I heard a couple of different versions of the original when it first came about.

    Why must producers feel the need to go back and remix tunes that really don't need it. Obviously there are exceptions, but if we ever? HC always coming with the remixes etc

    How can anyone get excited over this stuff? I really don't get it. If you want to hear sappy vocals, listen to RNB. The beat is good but the vocals are wack.

    I'm not sure THIS recording is of High Contrast spinning, but I saw him live recently and heard his set at the DNB Awards, and both times he played the original and then transitioned into this. I'm almost positive this is his VIP, but this recording from the OP has some synths that weren't there when he played it. The one I heard sounded a lot like Link to the Past, just not as deep or heavy with the If We Ever vocals/pianos.

    It's almost certainly his own VIP. He played it @Hospitality on February in Roxy Prague, he opened his b2b set with LE on that UKF gig on Thursday night with this one. And I like it. Maybe more than the original.
