It’s April and VANDIT are kicking autumn up into high gear with a megawatt package of ‘remix-re-visitations’, all drawn from the Berliner’s estimable discography!
Continuing VANDIT’s 15 year milestone celebrations, on offer you’ll find music from (amongst others) Giuseppe Ottaviani, Lange & Gareth Emery and Alex M.O.R.P.H. They have been heartily reworked by some of the label’s next-gen studio-heads, Paul Thomas & Chris Bekker, Dan Stone and Alan Banks included.
The result: ‘15 Years Of VANDIT Records Volume 2’, and this… is something you don’t want to be without!
Check out the 7 remixed classics below.
#1 Extravagance SL (they of ‘Cthulhu’ and ‘Kurai’ fame) are first-up, delivering a chiming, high-on-life elevation to Giuseppe Ottaviani’s ‘Linking People’.
#2 On a different tip, you’ll also find Seattle’s Magnus reshaping Reverse’s 2009 ‘Distant Destiny’ outing, retuning it to something more Psy-trance in frequency.
#3 Paul Thomas & Chris Bekker have been busy again, this time on the boundary-breaking Lange & Gareth Emery team-up, ‘Another You, Another Me’. Their interpretation has already drawn significant props from DJs and the music press alike.
#4 ‘Sunset Boulevard’ – Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Ana Criado’s vocal hypnotizer has also bagged itself a righteously fine (and dizzyingly uplifting!) Dan Stone remix!
#5 Alan Banks (just last month named as one of Billboard’s 2016 trance names to watch) meanwhile has done some comparably fine work on Second Sun’s ‘Empire’ too. The young Englishman leverages riff tension against spinning melodies, whilst packing an extra punch with his three-dimensional production.
#6 Comeback Kid Scott & hotshot newcomer Charlie Walker collaborate on another in their of-late celebrated REBOOTED remixes too. This time they have Jose Amnesia’s immortal ‘The Eternal’s clean between their studio crosshairs, giving it a floor-shifting ‘primetime’ revision.
#7 Last and by no means least in this epic-in-every-way package is Vince Aoun, who’s reworked the progressive/trance compression of Kuffdam & Plant’s ‘Dream Makers’ into something tougher and more club-hardy.
