just got premiered on one world radio!
Wasn't a big fan of this one all the years before but the new version sounds quite empty and soulless

I liked the main idea/melody of this track over all those years and got hyped as I saw it got finally premiered... Well, I hate how it turned out. Sounds empty, silly, and the drop... nc

Damn sounds really empty now. Some details are a lot better than the RIP, but this just seems like Shapov tried to get away from the HRS sound and failed... Too bad honestly, this track had an immense potential... :(

It's so empty like Belong's first version but a lot more generic. Very disappointing...

About finishing... It sounds more unfinished than few years ago

I understand a final studio version isn't going to sound identical to an earlier version played at a festival, but in this case the new version is absolute trash. I could be wrong, but I presume Shapov would have ditched releasing it altogether if it wasn't for people still calling for it to be released 4 years later.. so why completely change (ruin) the track everyone fell in love with? :roll:

Because he is a completely different artist than he was back then, and wants to put his name on something he believes in. Thatour tastes regarding chasing shadows didn't change much doesn't mean his taste should be the same. Its your brand & identity you put out there when releasing a song.

It‘s like he took the ‚progressive‘ from the ‚progressive house‘ in this track. He took all the energy from the track just to not have 2013 vibes.
