This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us all the way back to 2001 with a little trance tune that is still celebrated 16 years after its release!
It was the track that put trance duo Cosmic Gate on the map with its UK release back in 2001. Since then, Cosmic Gate has fast become one of the most adored and successful DJ/producer duo’s to ever grace the scene. The track I am talking about of course is “Fire Wire”! Since its explosive beginning, “Fire Wire” has charted #9 on the UK Singles Chart, making “Fire Wire” Cosmic Gate’s best-selling single for years to come. It was included on their 2001 album Rhythm & Drums as track #3 and was the 5th single released by this uber talented trance dream team.
Having been no stranger to the remix treatment “Fire Wire” has been the go-to track for reworks and remixes by Cosmic Gate with their Back 2 The Future remix, Rank 1, Wippenberg, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Indecent Noise, and even DJ Delicious. Today, “Fire Wire”, predominantly the Indecent Noise remix, remains strongly intact and present on the track lists of some of the biggest names in the industry and speaking from personal experience, whenever this track is dropped at an event, the crowd goes absolutely insane! So strap yourselves in for the wild ride that is…..”Fire Wire”!
