Review: This second remix package of Technasia material moves through a wide spectrum of moods and tempos. At the mellow end of the spectrum, there's the subtle, building groove of Charles Siegling's own "soft" mix of "Aries" and his glorious deep house take on "Phoenix". Covering the middle ground is the evocative, chord-heavy build of Edwin Oosterwal's take on "Movement" and Zadig's string stabbing version of "Innocuous clouds". Siegling's "hard" mix of "Aries" ramps up the intensity a few more notches, but it's his remix of "Palankeen" that's sure to cause the most chaos. A stripped back, uptempo techno tool with a purring bassline and the mother of all breakdowns, there can be no doubt about the effect it'll have.

Review: Technasia may have won its reputation as a techno act, but Charles Siegling shows that he's a diverse producer on Central Remixed Pt 1. While Jerome Sydenham impresses with the disco stabs and pumping rhythms that form his version of "Innocuous Clouds", the remaining three versions showcase Siegling's refusal to focus on one sound. The Technasia take on "Obsession" is a growling techno groove that features a breathy vocal intoning the track's title. On Technasia's 'hard' version of "Tu isla", pumping, loopy rhythms underpin Vivian Espinosa's sensuous vocals, while the soft remix is deeper and filtered, a house groove that wouldn't sound out of place in an Ibizan superclub.

Review: Charles Siegling goes back to his house roots for Heart Of Flesh. The title track is a repetitive, rolling groove, featuring subtle filter builds and a woman crying 'give them a heart of flesh'. "Octaval" is based on a similar premise; the percussion is more niggling and bleeps insinuate themselves into the mix, but the proliferation of bongo drums and a sassy Spanish vocal sample show that Siegling is fixated on tribal house. There is one exception however; "Michigan Ride", with its subtle acid line and jacking groove, has more in common with Chicago than the late 90s house sound of London or San Francisco - or indeed Luciano's Cadenza.
