Two massive German B-sides from 1994.

Harthouse and Eye Q - giants of trance. Most of their decent releases have found their way on to various compilations and re-releases over the years, but as far as I can tell, these two tracks have only ever appeared on vinyl as b-sides.

B1 Skyline (Sky Mix)

Vinyl Rip _ 320kbps MP3 ... mediafire

Absolutely rocking hard trance; the melody won't leave your head for days.

B1 Desire (Tronic Mix)

Vinyl Rip _ 320kbps MP3 ... mediafire

The a-side is a bit cheesy, with some girl whispering something about feeling her desire - not my cup of tea. The Tronic mix is proper trance; killer bassline, some nice pads and a main melody that's not too dissimilar to Sourmash's "Pilgrimage To Paradise" (released the year before). But unlike Sourmash (which was veering towards the hard house side of trance), the melody on this mix of "Desire" sounds like it was written by aliens to fuck with your acid dazzled mind.
My favourite Eye Q track.
