Renaissance Parallel, The Masters Series - mixed by Hernan Cattaneo

We love +Hernan Cattaneo's DJ sets that he regularly makes available as free downloads from his site. They are well worth a listen. His "live mix" from 2008 is a particular fave. The last 40 minutes are truly relentless!

How relieved we are then, that his mix CD's are almost as good (but licencing restrictions mean the live stuff has the edge for us).
His latest release on the mighty Renaissance label, under the Masters Series is another strong offering.

Disc 1 (the Day disc) is the cooler of the two discs as it is a few bpms down on what you may expect. But as we say often on the blog, things do build rather nicely and disc 1 is a fave of ours, even though its not the "peak time" madness we really love!
Stand out tracks on disc 1 have to be Guy J – Dust (Into Dust Mix) and Mercurio – Beautiful. Things build nicely!!

Disc 2 (the Night disc) is more close to what Spadang enjoys and if you are a fan of Hernan, you will agree. Its your regular trippy proggy trancey stuff, which is cool and tough enough to make you wanna hit a decent club as you listen to it. Best track on disc 2 has to be Future Beat Alliance – Crying Sine.
But all of disc 2 is worthy of being included in a fine selection of tunes!
So, if you like Renaissance mixes to be quality and well thought out, you will be well pleased to listen to both discs! Another piece of good work from Hernan Cattaneo.
