Reset? Another remix compilaton? Idea `n money-rewind? Again a bunch of recycled sounds that won`t top the originals? Indeed!
But stop, hold it. The core of this project is Peter Kruder`s Peace Orchestra album, which was nothing less than a landmark in 1999, a piece of pure genius.
If new versions can`t outdo this, it just means that it`s hard to climb Everest and that these remixes are still better than 99,9% of comparable output. No worries, "Reset" will set any hifi-system on fire: it’s in tune with the now-sound.
As you would expect from a perfectionist like Mr. Kruder, "Reset" is a handpicked revue of excellence. The Mixes follow the chronology of the original album, mellowing out its primary futureshock, morphing Peace Orchestra faves like "Shining", "The Man" or "Double Drums" into new Realms of beat-synthesis.
Silicon Boogie, Broken Soul, Latinaire Digital or Meta Dope Beats: it is all here. You`ll bump into the Nescafe charme of the Gotan boys, a genre hero like Rainer Trueby, regulars like Chateau Flight, Raw Deal or the fabulous Zero DB. But it’s the quiet talent, like Kosma, Guillaume Bouillard and the outstanding DJ DSL, that make this album tick. Enough ear candy for the advanced listener as well as the lounge guerilla.
Another Remix-Compilaton? Yes, but not like the rest.
Set your stereo on "Reset" !!
