Its been 21 years since its original release date and still to this day ‘Netherworld’ stands as one of the most iconic trance and progressive records ever produced.
Produced under his L.S.G. moniker, Oliver Lieb flipped the dance community upside down with the release of ‘Netherworld’ in the mid 90’s, a track truly ahead of its time in every measurable category. Almost immediately following its release in 1996, superstars Sasha & John Digweed picked up on it, regularly playing it out during their performances.
2005 saw a trancier L.S.G. rework before releasing 2017’s edit as anOliver Lieb remix on Bonzai Progressive. While it receives a rather new look more than two decades later, the unforgettable hook still manages to encapsulate fans to this day. Taking a moodier approach, Lieb fires off a series of crisp hi hats and powerful kicks that combat the light pads following in the background. Soon there after, the intro breaks wide open in to the familiar synth melody so delicately crafted over two decades prior, before seamlessly falling back in to a low end-fueled rhythm.
Included in the package is a stunning remix from Rise and Fall and a remastered version of the original.
