Warp 69 - 'Natural High (Global Communications Remix)' (1995)
There we were, having lunch by the pool, minding our own business enjoying the generic chill out background music that was playing in the restaurant. I mentioned to London Scouser that I used to enjoy this sort of music to gently help me to sleep. I went as far as to mention the time Flycasual recommended a particular song which was on a Trip Hop compilation years ago that I've since been trying to find but I couldn't remember what it was called. All of a sudden, no word of a lie, a familiar intro started over the restaurant speakers. My mouth fell open in stunned silence. "NO WAY!!!" I shouted, thinking I must have been mistaken or drank too much wine but sure enough, it was the very same song I was just talking about. It was the weirdest coincidence ever and I'm still freaked out about it now! Has anyone else had an experience like this??

Luckily, with the hotel's wifi, we Shazam'd the track so I could finally draw a line under my search. It's not everyone's cup of tea I know, but if you like ambient, trip hop mixed with a little jazz thrown in for good measure, this remix is 9 minutes of pure chill out bliss! Its enough to cure anyone suffering from insomnia! I also managed to find the track listing and title for the compilation it was from too here, Down To The Roach, if you wanted more of the same!
