If it were released in the era of Samba, “Gabriel” would go down as one of the best goddamned Samba songs ever made.

A chameleon of a track, that flexibility made DJs happy and dancefloors steam with heat the minute that characteristic rhythm invaded the room. House, Garage, UK Garage, Soul – everyone found something they loved about “Gabriel.” Some have called it the best dance music track ever made; it is certainly one of the most beloved and utterly lovable. Many tracks can be played in a classic context – “Gabriel” is still playable in any.
