In 2019 Cosmic Gate will mark a milestone: twenty successive years of music-making union. In the two decades, they have given rise to dozens of club classics, genre-shaping hits & outright anthems, 50+ career remixes, and 8 (soon to be 9) albums. Regularly reminded of this approaching moment by fans, Nic & Bossi looked at not a way to salute the career landmark, but the way.

‘Need To Feel Loved’ is the latest offering from the German legends from their upcoming 9th album Caught between the emphatic prog house intentions of its producers and a trance remix that supercharged it to classic status, it was released on the cusp of an evolutionary moment in Cosmic Gate’s history.
Their mix brings drum, percussion & depth-charge bass, which prefaces its deliberately elegiac pianoforte and Thomas Newman’s almost impossibly moving Road To Perdition strings. Break-side it equalizes with trance synth shimmer, LFO-generated sub riffs and the heartfelt chime of its mainline. Forêt’s vocals & Cosmic Gate’s euphoric melodies together resulted into this masterpiece.
