Oudja – Opium 2001 (Original Release 2001 Camouflage Cat No. CAM-2001-010)

Opium 2001 was a rehashing of the original Opium which first appeared back in 1994 as a double A 12″ alongside Amazone. Gregory Dewindt, Peter Schiettekatte and Philippe Toutlemonde (who later left) were responsible for this one and the original certainly got a millennial makeover. On the flip you would find the much underrated track Actarus.

Oudja – Never Tell What You Think (Original Release 1999 Bonzai Trance Progressive Cat No. BTP6199)

Oudja’s second offering came almost 5 years after Amazone and it’s widely accepted that it was well worth the wait. Never Tell What You Think was one of those tracks that worked anywhere in a set, from the opening to the peak. That chugging bassline commanded the dancefloor and delivered a solid trance groove. A beautifully mystical pad swelled over the top as the melodies bgan to take hold on the break before getting back into full on mode with a crashing climax that got many clubs pumping. This one got various re-releases including a release on Bonzai Trance Progressive UK as Never Tell.

Oudja’a Amazone first appeared in 1994 on Hard Times Recordings before getting snapped up on Bonzai Trance Progressive Italy and then later, on Bonzai Trance Progressive for a flurry of top notch remixes. Oudja was made up of  Gregory Dewindt, Peter Schiettekatte and Philippe Toutlemonde and aside from this one these guys were responsible for many top tracks during the good old days of trance and progressive, notably The Effect – Green Angel among others. A proper trance slice that graced many sets in its day, the original release came with the fantastic Opium on the flip.
