The track was a massive success, and it led to the creation of another massively successful track, "Communication." This track was released under that same label, and it became very popular in Ibiza, Spain, in 1999. "Communication" would later make it to No. 18 of the UK Singles Chart in 2000. He developed his first compilation album immediately after, naming it A State of Trance.
