Review:

MY NAME IS TECHNO Yet another TECHNO compilation, this time from another Italian label IPNOTICA released under ATLANTIS (a SAIFAM label). Truly a marvel for all of you TECHNO freaks. This compilation features 24 tunes in continuous mix done by GIORGIO MARTINI. An excellent trip into Italian TECHNO scene. GIORGIO did a careful selection of tracks to this compilation to reflect the specific Italian club scene. As I have mentioned in another occassion, the Italian TECHNO falls more into TECHNO/HOUSE with pronounced INDUSTRIAL flavor and rich HARD strings here and there. CD starts with "Tokakrash" by M.A.D.R.A.S. a big room TRIBAL TECHNO with some Russian/Turkish (take a pick) influence. Very energetic tune followed by DJ CERLA "Sahara Rave". From SAIFAM crue comes TECHNO anthem "La Follia" by FREDERIK, "The Race" by LUCA ANTOLINI DJ and of course track from a leading SAIFAM DJ - DJ GIUS - "Amnesia". Be prepared for a HARD sound with lotsa bass and drums in most of these tunes. I was also pleased to see new tune from NEBULA - "Orbital Park". I really like the mix of TECHNO and TRANCE done by this project. I was not dissapointed this time as well. GIORGIO also selected some German tunes to spice up the compilation. So you will find here relatively new tunes by ATB - "Hold Me" , "Supa-Dupa-Fly" by 666, super production "My Houzze" by GARY D. from his recent album "Strike !!!" or revamped "Wonderful Days" by CHARLY LOWNOISE & MENTAL THEO. Taken together an impressive set of HARD TECHNO tunes for your dance floor. The sampler mix from this compilation contains 8 tunes (original mixing was not retained). Enjoy the music and support the artists by buying this product!

Title: TECHNODOME - vol. 4 - reviewed on 11/25/01

Review:

TECHNODOME 4 Now something for fans of TECHNO sound. New volume of TECHNODOME. This series usually features two mixes be leading Italian DJs in a sort of battle competition. This time we have mixes done by DJ GIUS and LUCA MORRIS, each featuring 10 tunes. Both mixes caters to club oriented TECHNO and PROGRESSIVE genres. Be prepared also for lotsa DRUM'N'BEAT. DJ GIUS's mix starts with "Sinus" by R.WOOD & SPACECASE. Right from the beginning you are entering a psychodelic TECHNO sound with comsic effects and drums that are taking over. Very aggressive, synth-driven fare running full blast here. Among other choices in DJ GIUS's mix is brand new PROGRESSIVE tune by BROOKLYN BOUNCE - "Club Bizzare" (remake of U 96 hit), "Time To Bob" by PLUG 'N' PLAY or new from DJ TOMCRAFT - "Overdose". There is also DJ GIUS's own tune "Amnesia", a true big room essential club tune to knock your socks off. LUCA MORRIS's mix is equally good. It starts with very KRAFTWERK-alike "Freiburg" by TOCOTRONIC vs. CONSOLE. This is way-cool TECHNO circuit fare with blunt, emontionless female vocals. "La La Land" by GREEN VELVET could be described as SYNTH-POP tune thrown into TECHNO ocean. Interesting combination. Another very SYNTH-POP alike tune is "Silver Screen Shower Scene" by FELIX DA HOUSECAT. It reminds me a bit of VISAGE style. From Italian TECHNO scene, we have here LUCA MORRIS own tune "Little Family", "ECU" by D.J. RICKY T. to name the few. Taken together we have a release with almost 70 minutes of compelling TECHNO sound straight from the club. Good TECHNO party offering if you want to have one on your own. Please listen to a sound sampler featuring 8 tunes from this compilation. Enjoy!

Review:

MEGATECHNO - Vol. 2 Another TECHNO compilation. This time on SAIFAM Spot Compilation series. If you follow SAIFAM releases you probably know this particular series. It is divided by genres and one of them is TECHNO. "MEGA TECHNO-vol. 2" is the most current offering. You will find here fares coming mainly from Italian TECHNO club scene and written by SAIFAM team. This is mixed compilation for your ultimate, flawless pleasure. From SAIFAM's original library comes such tunes as "Raver's Rules" by TECHNOBOY, "Crazy Bass" by HYPNOPUNK, "Viva Robot" by DROID and several others. Selected music clearly shows that folks from SAIFAM are getting into mainstream TECHNO club sound. It has been actually for quite a while, since most recent releases from SAIFAM comes from TECHNO/TRANCE area. So how about the music? It's rather heavy TECHNO rich with DRUM'N'BASS in most tunes. You will encounter this style from the very first tune in this compilation. As a matter of fact this style dominates in entire compilation. Definately a gem for ravers, since the metallic and full-blown electronica sound is intoxicating and very much infleunced by INDUSTRIAL scene. Try this one. I prepared the mix featuring 6 tunes as a sample of what you will be facing when you will get this unique in club-sound compilation..
