Remix Culture Electro, Industrial Isis Signum Isis Signum's 'Remix Culture' is 16 tracks of some exclusive unreleased remixes/versions and some others from EPs, 12"s,and Digitals from 2004-2012. Track one "Energy (Supreme Court Remix)" has a familiar and catchy sound, definately something I'd play out at a club. Very dancible! Track two, "The Heat is Moving (Lila Organa and Electric Prince Remix)" is a hard, dark, electro-industrial steamroller of awesome. I love how this track gives a good straight beat ending so that it's very DJ friendly for mixing and beatmatching! Again, a track I would play at a club. Isis Signum is starting off 'Remix Culture' with a BANG!!! Track three, "Senses (8kHz Mono Remix)" is like a mix between old, dark Madonna and electro-industrial synths. A slower song, reminding me of theWIRED in a way. I'm really digging this album and its eclectic sounds. Track four, "Technique (Lastrax remix)" is reminiscent of Neikka RPM in a way, and again... I would play this in a club. "Technique (Lastrax remix)" might be a little repetitive, but it has an extremely catchy sound. Onto track number five, "Destroy The Wall (Supreme Court Remix)" doesn't have much to it and I feel like there's a lot of sound clips / vocalizations that don't quite make sense to me, for example; "make up your mind!", "Cryogenics!", etc. Track six, "Symmetry Part II (Strafbomber Club Edit)" is a bass heavy, hard industrial dance tune. Its very well layered and put together, and again, I'd say that this should be played out in a club. Its different and extremely danceable and not too repetitive. "Communication (People Theatre Club Edit)", track seven, complete with booming oontz and sensual vocals make this a STAND OUT track. It has a vocal trance feel with a harder synth line that makes this track fit in with multiple genres, giving it playability in many scenes. I feel like this could be a floor-filler. Track eight, "Geometry (Sequencia Remix)" starts off catchy and reeling - pulling the listener in with its melodic synths. I like the journey this song is taking me on. As the song progresses, I like it even more with what they did to the vocals. Isis Signum 'Remix Culture' is something DJs need to purchase! There is something here for everyone to enjoy and mix. Track number nine, "Hearbreaker (Lila Organa and Electric Prince Mix)", is a danceable tune. A thumping dark, sexy melody. A simply hot dancefloor hit waiting to happen, and again, sounding like it could go with some hard dance / trance as well as industrial-electro, making it a very versatile track for a DJs arsenal. Track ten, "Liberty (Tecnoman SF Remix)" starts off with a psychedelic sound, almost like minimal psytrance. I am in love as soon as the lyrics start with their trippy edit. Though a slower song, "Liberty (Tecnoman SF remix)" is still worth a listen and at the very least, a head bob. "Music is My Heart (Felix Stone club edit)", track eleven, is very electro-sounding. Something I would play in an industrial set as well as an electro set. I really love this track, I'd say its one of my favorites on the album as hard as it is to choose favorites on 'Remix Culture'. I KNOW I'VE SAID IT BEFORE BUT THIS ENTIRE ALBUM IS EXTREMELY DJ FRIENDLY AND WELL WORTH CHECKING OUT. Moving on to Track tweleve, "The Heat is Moving (The Synthetic Dream Foundation Remix), I am instantly excited to hear it because well, The Synthetic Dream Foundation is AMAZING. TSDF adds its signature dark psytrance sounds to the track and it doesnt dissapoint. Another favorite of mine on the compilation. Track thirteen, "Energy (Strafbomber Remix), another solid remix. Another reason to listen to the compilation. Though I prefer the Supreme Court remix, this one isn?t at all bad or worse. Its just a preference. This track is still pretty awesome and well put together. "Destroy the Wall (Daniel Myer Renagade of Noise Mix)", track fourteen, is BREATH-TAKING. I love Daniel Myer's work (Coventant, Haujobb, Destroyed, etc.), he is a musical genius and this is just another gem! The pounding synths, the constant barrage of electronic amazingness that is Daniel Myer will convert you to a fan if you aren't already! BONUS: There's some lead-out for a DJ to mix into at the end. Track fifteen, "Heartbreaker (Implant remix)", by far the darkest and most psychedelic track on the compilation. I'm assuming it'll be psytrance and it ends up with a breakbeat... WOW. Psychedelic breakbeats. Sexy, dark, danceable, easily one of the BEST tracks on the compilation and the best remix of "heartbreaker". Track number sixteen, "The Heat is Moving (Dead Man Danz Remix)" is DJ friendly, dark, and continues with the ''theme'' of the compilation; Well put-together music that can and will fill a dancefloor. My bottom line is simple; IF YOU ARE INTO THE DARKER SIDE OF GOOD ELECTRONIC MUSIC SPANNING MULTIPLE GENRES, Get this compilation. IF YOU ARE A DJ LOOKING FOR NEW MUSIC TO PLAY THAT IS EXTREMELY MIX FRIENDLY, Get this compilation. 450
