Review: Iconic French producer Bob Sinclair employs German legend Tocadisco to give his classic electro house track Iche Rocke a typically lysergic rerub. The track originally came out in 2001 and featured remixes from Thomas Schumacher, Cajuan and Gregory Minimal among others, and here Tocadisco delivers a remix primed for contemporary electro house dance floors. A huge treatment with gritty, enveloping synths buzzing over the top of a thumping beat whilst the catchy and iconic "in der disko" vocal lines are pitch shifted to perfection and looped to distraction. One listen and you'll be in a Teutonic trance!
Review: Dutch producer Funkerman not only runs the Flamingo label with Fedde Le Grand, but has also had a string of huge hits like their collaborative "Wheels In Motion" or "Speed Me" from 2006. E3's mix gives the latter a sped-up and rather radical re-rub, adapting the classic Korg M1 organ part from Robin S's "Show Me Love" into a huge Dutch house stomper that dices up section of the original's vocals like a DJ cutting in between tracks live. It works well, updating a big tune for modern dancefloors and maintaining momentum throughout.
Review: The fledgling Axed imprint kicks into gear with another new talent, Italy's Francesco Bettio, who proceeds to drops a rather epic dosage of synth-heavy electro house in the form of "Drivers". Think Deadmau5, think Plump DJs, or even Calvin Harris and then go deeper and further into deep italo disco territories.
