The debut from Positiva's Barthezz (aka Bart Clausen) hit the Top Ten in Spain, Germany, Denmark, and his native Holland before its official British release. With its typically Dutch flavor and too-clean high-pitched climaxes, "On the Move" shared a lot in common with Positiva's trance-pop acts like Alice Deejay and Fragma, less with shrewd labelmates Marc Et Claude and Barbara Tucker. Riva's remix was distant like a soggy System F, while Dumonde created a fuller, harder feel that was very much needed.
