Not soon after reviewing Nick Warren’s new double album do we find ourselves reveling in its accompanying sampler. Releasing on Warren’s own label Hope Recordings, the Renaissance Sampler is filled with four top-notch remixes and one new production that are certain to please those who enjoy a deep, progressive sound.
Darin Epsilon’s Shine The Light gets a complete reconstruct by German producer Ryan Davis, a rising star we usually find releasing marvels on Traum. It’s stripped back from the original’s tremendous energy, adding a complex atmospheric and emotional layer that’s been driving it up Beatport’s charts. Tom Glass reforms Darren Flecta’s laid-back In Moments into a dirty, dance-inducing monster suited for peaking in the big room. Last up is Argentinian Antrim’s new production Blow Your Mind, a stunning Balearic excursion with a lead synth that transports me back to my early Gatecrasher years. You can pick up the Renaissance Sampler from Beatport today.
