Binary Finary (Matt, Ricky Grant, Woody and Tony) aroused massive interest from the press and public with their unmistakable trance anthem, â€˜1998â€™. It was originally released on Aquarius Records, before being signed to EMI Recordsâ€™ dance music offshoot, Positiva Records and consequently becoming a massively successful single. The track is the epitome of the surging, melodic trance that has been the soundtrack to the late 90sâ€™ â€˜Mitsubishi [a type of strong ecstasy tablet] Revolutionâ€™ in European clubs, such as the UKâ€™s Gatecrasher. â€˜1998â€™ took dance floors by storm, with its powerful chord changes, heart-stopping breakdown and dramatic crescendos. The track has been featured on numerous mix compilations and has proved a favourite with many notable DJs such as Paul Van Dyk (who remixed the track), Paul Oakenfold and Judge Jules. Positiva re-released the track as â€˜1999â€™ in that year, in a two-disc format, featuring remixes from Van Dyk, Matt Darey, Gouryella (DJ TiÃ«sto and Ferry Corsten) and Kaycee. It proved a crossover success, reaching number 11 in the UK charts. Binary Finary performed live at numerous club events and festivals in 1998 and 1999, including Glastonbury Festival, Creamâ€™s Creamfields and in Ibiza.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
