Gabriel Garzón-Montano - Keep On Running

The Rapture - Olio

This is the original version of this track — they did another version on the beginning of their 2003 LP Echoes, which uses more electronic sounds and a slower beat. I prefer this one, since it has a much clearer primary melody and a lot more energy, though the synths they use on Echoes are better defined.
