Few dance producers do melodies like Brazilian Gui Borratto, and these versions of Paralelo are in keeping with his uplifting approach . The Solee remix sees spacey, breathy chords build over a splurging acid bass and the includion of a spacey filter means that it strikes a perfect balance between depth, trippiness and dance floor appeal. The Oliver Schories version is more upfront, with its hissing percussion and nagging bass creating a darker mood, which is in turn augmented by chilling strings. Finally, the Boss Axis version sees a return of sorts to Borratto's melodic sound, as chiming bells and a surging, humming bass compete for the listener's attention.
Maxime Dangles' crisp, clear techno is a breath of fresh air. Taking the solid bars of icy synths and resonant pulsing bass of "Diskover" and splicing them into a minimal house atmosphere. The resulting tracks from this experimentation are the perfect epitome of minimal techno, yet the edgy frost is brushed off somehow by the warm influence of years of house music influences. Hauk 'n' Baum discard any semblance of warmth for their remix, crushing cold synths with big, flat beats with an addictive drive. The less-is-more approach of "Jupita" builds into a playful mish-mash of bleeps and blips when left alone; Ignacy Rome's remix is dancefloor techno at its height; harsh with a wry smile, restrained until the end. Delicious.
