Review: Camargue is one of the techno classics from the 90s - a track that appealed to hardcore fans and UK techno geeks alike. So what happens when it gets remixed a quarter-century later? Maceo Plex turns in a drum-heavy, rolling take on the original, while the Keith Carnal take is a high-paced, pulsating workout. On his version, Enrico Sangiuliano chooses to drop a siren-led banger, while label owner Adam Beyer's collaborative remix with Layton Giordani has echoes of the 90s trance sound. Best of all though is Camargue co-creator The Advent's take, where he drops the original's unmistakable hook over a bruising techno rhythm.
Review: Coyu's label has scored a serious coup for its latest release, recruiting techno legend The Advent aka Cisco Ferreira to deliver a superb three- track EP. "Witches Spell" is led by churning, dubbed out chords and razor sharp percussion and these elements are underpinned by tight drums. In contrast, "Live 98 Tour" is a high-paced banger, that is redolent of the looped techno sound that Ferreira pioneered during the mid-90s on the Elements of Life long player. He then hooks up with Zein to shine a light on the other side of The Advent canon: "Same 4" is a hyperactive electro track that fuses dreamy synths with splurging bass to create a distinctive, futuristic sound.
