Union Jack – ‘Cactus’ 2017 Remixes

1. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Jonno Brien Remix)

2. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Adam Kent Remix)

3. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (OOOD Remix)

4. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Airwave’s Dark and Long Mix)

5. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Quietman Remix)

6. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Original Mix Remastered)

Originally released in 1994, ‘Cactus’ is regarded as one of Union Jack’s finest moments. 23 years on, despite a plethora of requests, no remixes have ever been commissioned…until now.

Irish Techno DJ/Producer and rising star Jonno Brien originally got the ball rolling last year when he sent in his remix out of the blue. It was quite simply too good to be ignored. Carl Cox, who was one of only a handful of DJ’s to be sent the mix, hammered it worldwide and included it as one of his highlights at the Closing Party @ Space, Ibiza.

Adam Kent serves up a driving semi-spangled tech houser.

Psychedelic sorcerers OOOD remain faithful to the prickly original but slam it into the 21st planet and beyond.

Airwave’s Laurent reappears with an extended gloaming exploration into Cactaceae cornucopia.

After a long hiatus, Quietman’s Laurence and Wilf emerge from a shimmering mirage with a sublime slice of desert sunrise.

‘Cactus – 2017 Remixes’ will be released 12th June 2017 on Beatport. Global release 27th June 2017 on Platipus.

Martin Merkel ‘Little Wonder’ / ‘Constantin’ OUT NOW on Platipus Records with Remix by Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio
Global release today: Available on all portals.
1. Little Wonder (Original Mix)
2. Little Wonder (Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio Remix)
3. Constantin (Original Mix)
(Platipus Records) PLATMU97
Format: Digital
Release Date: 27 November 2017
This ‘Little Wonder’ / ‘Constantin’ release is an introduction and taste of what is to come from Martin Merkel in 2018 with the release of his ‘Constantin’ album – a creative project inspired by his emotional journey over the past year and honouring the recent birth of his son. His joining forces with the legendary Platipus Records marks a bold new direction in the label’s evolution, as its creative ethos develops in an exciting Tech House / Melodic Techno direction. The inclusion here of a dynamic remix of ‘Little Wonder’ by recent Bedrock (‘Oblivion’) stars Luke Brancaccio & Simon Berry (Union Jack / Art Of Trance) is an excellent further indicator of the label’s future sonic landscape.
The immediately infectious ‘Little Wonder’ has a timeless quality that makes exceptional music become so treasured. Martin Merkel creates a masterful blend of switching elements as he layers atmospheric excellence over a deeply powerful percussive groove. Building on the original’s complexity, Simon Berry & Luke Brancaccio proceed to lift the track to another level with their remix. A sophisticated, pulsing groove, blended with teasing acidic motifs, this is a master-class in subtle genius as they build a voyage into the realms of peak-time Techno with a distinct filmic, emotive edge. This new duo’s recent output is already finding favour with the likes of John Digweed, Kolsch, Yotto, Nick Warren, Guy Mantzur, Coyu, Victor Ruiz and many other top DJs; and with a new single lined up on Yousef’s Circus label for the New Year, this remix is a taste of more excellence to come.
In perfect contrast to the infectious energy of ‘Little Wonder’, and completing this introductory package perfectly, Martin Merkel’s delightfully different ‘Constantin’ is built on an almost tranquil, low-slung groove, enhanced with hypnotic pulsating motifs and distinctive layers of intricate, heart-melting, melody rich, mood changing moments – a perfect teaser for his album coming in January 2018.
Originally inspired as an artist by the experimental attitude of Italo Disco and the embryonic Techno scene, via parties at the likes if Dorian Grey and Omen (Frankfurt) and Tresor (Berlin), Martin Merkel’s nascent career saw him develop an early love of analogue synthesisers – and saw him fill his studio with a desirable collection of Moog, Roland and Waldorf machinery. In recent years he has moved towards a more compact, travel-friendly digital studio set-up, but his love of synthesisers remains a defining characteristic of his uniquely distinctive musical output today. A master of sonic excellence and musicality, his creations have previously often crept out on the likes of Cinematique, Bonzai, Secondary Tones, JOOF, Monkey Business, Neverending and his own Shelter 54 imprint. Now, under the auspicious guidance of Platipus Records the most exciting new chapter of his career is about to begin.

Remixes from Airwave, Monojoke , and a sumptuous double helping from man of the moment Gai Barone.

Originally released back in ’95, ‘Octopus’ is one of Simon Berry’s strongest Art Of Trance releases to date. Later that year, it was remixed by R&S artist Capricorn (of 20Hz fame) and Man With No Name, so it seemed that after 20 years new remixes were surely justified.

Italy’s fast rising star Gai Barone has delivered quite possibly the finest remix he’s ever done with his Gallery Remix. Not only that, he decided to do a second remix for good measure.

Israel’s Yuli from Perfect Stranger serves up a very solid mix which stays closer to the original. Frenchman, Rick Pier O’Neil returns with another sublime slice of sunrise.

Englishman, Matt Holliday offers a spacious and textured soundscape for his interpretation and is followed by a remastered version of the original.

1. Art Of Trance ‘Before The Storm’ (Original Mix)

1. Art Of Trance ‘Before The Storm’ (Rick Pier O’Neil Remix)

Another fine atmospheric piece of craftsmanship from Simon Berry’s solo venture following on from ‘Humans’ in 2014.

Italy’s Gai Barone has has rightfully earned his place leading figures in the progressive house and trance scene and delivers one of his best remixes to date.

French born Rick Pier O’Neil, who now resides in Mexico delivers an equally blistering mix.

Art Of Trance ‘Before The Storm’  is available on 13th July 2015 on Platipus Records.
