Review: Originally released back in 2011, these collaborative tracks between Dubfire and Oliver Huntemann now get reworked. Joseph Capriati, one of the fast rising names in the minimal techno scene, has been tasked with reworking "Terra". Listening to the Italian DJ's rolling groove, tough beats and insistent stabs, it's not hard to hear why Capriati commands such a following. The other Dubfire & Huntemann track to get remixed is "Fuego", with Julien Jeweil on remix duties. The French producer uses a similar rolling groove but uses tight Chicago claps, a squelchy bass and some wild siren riffs to create an inventive new spin on minimal house.

Review: Oliver Huntemann: Bremen's master practitioner of dark journey tracks meets with techno's quintessential dark lord Dubfire for Retrospectivo 2008 - 2016, on the former's revered Senso Sounds. Meeting over social media several years ago and bonding over likeminded musical aesthetics, a strong alliance has been forged ever since. The two superstar DJs throw together some of the label's finest highlights over the last eight years on a continuous mix but don't worry; the individual tracks are provided separately for your enjoyment. We particularly enjoyed the amazing remixes of their 2008 collaboration "Diablo" which receives a full throttle makeover by Toronto's finest Carlo Lio, Gaiser's Atheists Anonymous remix of "Dios" (which takes it down that trademark m_nus style minimal route), while fellow m_nus alumni Julian Jeweil from France throws in an impressive rendition of "Fuego". Llast but not least "Agua" (feat Xenia Beliayeva) gets a remix by the legendary Carl Craig..
