As one of Private Reality’s most acclaimed releases, “Distant Memories” is an elegant musical journey. It features a strong foundation with percolating arpeggios, shimmering strings, and smooth vocal stabs rising.

Adding to the original, Matthew Dekay’s powerful remix garnered immediate attention from prominent figures such as Sasha, John Digweed, Sander Kleinenberg, Max Graham, and Hernan Cattaneo.

  • “Playing and charting this for months. Both mixes are fantastic!” – Hernan Cattaneo
