Two consecutive #1’s on the Beatport Top 100 has taken this special series of releases from strength to strength. Combining Techno’s new breed of heavyweights with the perfect classic track, is a formula Renaissance are getting right time after time. Following on from Solomun and Tale Of Us’s outstanding contributions, Renaissance turn their attention to the ever-evolving Maceo Plex for a remix of Remake’s iconic ‘Blade Runner’; a track featured prominently on the very first Renaissance compilation in 1994.

Eric Estornel aka Maceo Plex has become well known for his mind-bending Techno sets and releases under various guises such as Maetrik. 2011 saw the Ellum Audio boss, release his debut album under Maceo Plex on Crosstown Rebels, ‘Life Index’ was met with critical acclaim and propelled the North American to success. Leading to him starting his own label Ellum Audio with a distinct Techno sound, whilst releasing his own music it’s served as tool to champion those around him seeing releases from upcoming acts such as Agents Of Time and Shall Ocin.

Speaking about the ReMix Maceo Plex, explains his love for the Neo-Noir Science Fiction Film Blade Runner’s soundtrack and the inspirations behind the track:

“The original Vangelis, soundtrack for the movie Blade Runner is my all-time favourite cinema soundtrack and one of my favourite records from the early 90’s is the cover ‘Blade Runner’ by Remake.” – Maceo Plex

Throughout time artists, musicians and designers have all paid homage to the cult classic movie and its soundtrack which has inspired the minds of many. Now taking his opportunity through the ReMix collection, Maceo Plex has delivered a timeless edit for the Renaissance collection series. Injecting the signature Maceo Plex sound with pulsating bass lines and futuristic synth tones stabbing their way to the breakdown where we’re met with all too familiar piano melody; transforming the original cover into a prime-time atmospheric weapon.

“I wanted to make my own version to honour this special music and add a little something personal in this new version” – Maceo Plex

IN TRANCE WE TRUST 022 – MIXED BY MENNO DE JONG

As venerable an institution as exists in trance, ITWT unleash the latest edition in their mix collection series this July. Having assumed its reins back in 2014, chairman Menno de Jong has A&R’d the label into a new era and – through its annual ADE showcase – brought it a live aspect. Alongside Sneijder and Mike Saint Jules, the Dutchman mixed a disc of its commemorative 20th anniversary triple CD, but given his longstanding ITWT relationship, surprisingly hasn’t previously gone solo on his own edition. That’s rectified this month, as he takes the mix helm to put his vision for the label into the sharpest possible focus.

Across its sixteen tracks (ten of which feature exclusively), Menno balances productions by scene greats (Oakenfold, John O’Callaghan among them) with those making waves more recent in nature. To that end Alex Di Stefano, Ciaran McAuley, Amir Hussain, Casey Rasch and Leroy Moreno are just some of those who’s latest studio wares have found their way into #22’s system. You’ll also find music from classic trance operators like Misja Helsloot, Andain and Talla 2XLC, whilst Menno himself contributes two tracks to 2018’s order.

Mixed to the exacting standards De Jong fans have come to know, expect and love, ITWT22 weighs anchor in a Psy-ish state of mind. Liquid Soul & Zyce’s splice of Oakenfold’s ‘Full Moon Party’, Metronome’s take on GMO’s ‘Forty-Two’ and Tyas’ take on Menno’s own ‘Ananda’ all pile on the frontend pressure. Exclusively, ‘Victra’ from Skylex comes hot on the heels of the US producer’s 2018 treatment of Andain’s ‘Beautiful Things. ‘My Shadow’ by Alex Di Stefano, ‘If I Survive’ from Robbie Van Doe, ‘Mana’ courtesy of Amir Hussain and Ciaran McAuley’s ‘The Titanic’ supply a shifting, compelling blend of harmonic vibes, mixed with tougher edged sounds.

As the mix moves into its second phase, ‘uplifting’ becomes its prime directive. In title and tone, ‘Flying High’ from Casey Rasch, Misja Helsloot’s ‘See The Sun Again’ and Talla 2XLC ‘Uprising’ each elevate its trajectory by degrees. With the pH-pow of John O’Callaghan’s acidic ‘Next Stop Muddy Waters’ still ringing in the ears, Menno drops his 2018 Outro Edit of ‘Set To Sail’, giving ITWT22 a fittingly anthemic conclusion.

A summer essential for ITWT collect-avists and newcomers alike, you can pre-order the album here https://itwt.choons.at/itwt022cd
