already suppported by:
Luke Solomon, Snuff Crew, Danny Tenaglia, Tensnake, Arthur Baker, Just Kiddin, Todd Edwards, Sean Johnston, Sister Bliss (Ministry Of Sound Radio)....and many more.
“Ben Hur took longer to complete”, said Aerea Negrot (ex-Hercules and Love Affair chanteuse) when she and Billie had finally recorded their vocals, having tried to get together for over a year. Thus the new ‘Baccara of House’, as they jokingly called themselves, were on a roll. A match made in house-heaven, the two voices combine to create a somewhat Grace Jones-esque epic vocal fest with an old-school tinge.
Produced by Britain's finest, multi-talented producer Waterson, and co-produced by BRM.
The remixes blow all expectations with an extremely well crafted Napoleon mix (aka Simon Mills of Bent), bringing to mind classic Chicago heroes, Ray Grant’s massive dose of Disco meets House Infusion and an outstanding Moroder-esque workout from Electrosexual. The icing on the cake comes from Aerea herself with classic house-style mixes drawing on the vocal powers of this tune.

Track Name: Off The Rails (Radio Edit)
seemingly i couldn't help myself from steering off the right track
i was always on the other side of sanity when you found out

weary from a reality that made me lead a stranger's life
i was only trying to find out about what could not be found

and it's steering me
well away from here
vive decouple
go and don't follow me

oh
how can you say you believe that i'm off the rails
i'm heading straight my way
i want a seat in the vip when i'm off the rails
i'm just waiting for the right train

i can't believe when you say that i'm off the rails
when i don't wanna be on your train
on a beat with the freaks when i'm off the rails
all derailed and deranged

seemingly i always had a natural attraction to disaster
i was only trying to negotiate over the terms of the details

head on to collision course (oh) with a fake reality
far away from a destiny i could never see

and it's staring me
in the face to see
vive la folie
go, don't follow me
