Alexander Barck (Jazzanova) :: Live @ La Paillote, Italy
This is a live mix from Alexander Barck of Jazzanova and Sonar Kollektiv. Now Jazzanova needs no introduction. I have been a huge fan of their music for years and years. They are masters and remixing and original production. If you have the time, I highly suggest you take a look at their discography. You'll find gem after gem. I've never heard Alexander Barck spin before but after listening this mix, I'm a believer. The mix starts out pretty deep and I believe it may even have a sample of Bruce Springsteen song (go figure). A little further in, it enters into a hip-house type track followed by something a bit synthpop-ish. The vocals throughout the mix are very nice. In fact it's refreshing to hear some deep house with full on vocals that aren't über-cheesy. About halfway into the mix, he drops Jaydee's Plastic Dreams. Two things regarding this song: first it is still a classic. It was originally released in 1992 and blew me away the first time I heard it. The second thing is that for whatever reason I have been running across this song a lot lately. Maybe it's coincidence but it's sort of like when you learn a new word, you are bound to hear it often. After Plastic Dreams, the mix continues its lovely ways and dives into a techy vibe. It finally ends with some disco goodness. My final word is that it gets two thumbs up and deserves a listen.
