As Moon Harbour fast approaches its 20th-anniversary celebrations, the Leipzig label casts an eye back over classic tracks and invites some contemporary heavyweights to remix. First up, Spanish techno titan Paco Osuna reworks ‘Crazy Circus,’ which was originally released on label boss Matthias Tanzmann’s Restless album in 2008.
Paco Osuna has been at the top techno table for decades. The Spaniard is a Music On resident, has a lively, intelligent and sophisticated sound and has made his Mindshake label into one of the most prominent in the game.
He brings all of his know-how to this superb remix, stripping it back then rebuilding it as a direct techno roller. The big drums wash over you as urgent synths and a deep-buried bassline keep you moving. Atmospheric breakdowns allow the pressure to build and subtle vocal samples add some vital heart and soul.
This is a surefire weapon for high energy parties.
