  Hoojfan Comments
The story about Tilt and Hooj is apparently as follows. Perfecto left Warners and Tilt were left without a record deal. The last disc they put out was "Butterfly" which just happened to contain a collaboration with German trance-meister Paul Van Dyk. This was done in 1996 and indeed the track "Rendezvous" was only a B-side to the single. In 1999 Tilt signed to Hooj. They had quite a few tunes kicking around including the "Rendezvous". Not only did its B-Side placing not live up to its greatness but also Paul Van Dyk had now turned into a big star. Indeed "Rendezvous" was the one of the stand out tracks on his best selling triple CD of remixes (not to mention Tranceport). Trance was in full swing and it was time to get commercial. Instead of releasing "Rendezvous" directly, Hooj tranced it up added vocals and made it more commerical, "Invisible" was the result. Hooj smelled a big seller and the package was promo-ed across three 12"'s. However only one full 12" was released (with the weakest versions of the songs) - this pushed the prices of the promos right up. I personally still don't believe "Rendezvous" will ever be bettered but some of the mixes of Invisible are top notch. Overall 8/10.

P.S. Apparently there is a "Tilt's Human Mix" of Invisible on white label, if you spot it then let me know.

P.P.S. "I Dream" was once listed by Paul Van Dyk as one of his top 5 tunes. I would agree with him there, definitely in my top 5 Dance tunes too.
