It was released on Data Records and Planetary Consciousness in 1999, "Endless Wave" also included two remixes from Tiësto's song "Theme From Norefjell", another version features remixes from "Endless Wave" which was mixed in Global Clubbing: The Netherlands and "Outstream" as a B-side. "Endless Wave" and the duo's next B-side "Cryptomnesia" were played in Live at Innercity: Amsterdam RAI.

In 1999, "Far From Over" became the next Kamaya Painters single with "Cryptomnesia" which was included in Magik Five: Heaven Beyond and "Soft Light" as B-sides. Reef Recordings was the label releasing the "Far From Over" remixes from Oliver Lieb and Wavestate in 2000.
