After the great success of the first two releases of the RE-TOUCHED SERIES Vol.I and Vol.II with the contribution of some of the most respected artists in the realm of techno such as Ben Sims, James Ruskin, The Advent, Sterac aka Steve Rachmad and Matrixxman, Gaetano Parisio is relaunching Conform Records with the next two releases featuring Honey Dijon, Deetron, Steve Bicknell, Oscar Mulero, Ken Ishii, Alexander Kowalski, Radio Slave, Mark Broom, Adriana Lopez and Shlomi Aber.
RE-TOUCHED SERIES Vol.IV follows up with Radio Slave and his re-interpretation of Gaetano Parisio’s ‘Inside’, a track that is a continuous crescendo, but always well anchored to its original groove. The great British producer, Mark Broom once again leaves no doubt about his ability to create dance-floor killers and it seems that his edit was created to challenge the sound systems around the world. It’s every DJ’s dream to play a track of such impact during a party. His version remains faithful to the original, but it has that broomish which makes it super catchy.
Honey Dijon, an absolute star in the techno world, makes her debut on Conform with her ‘Re Rub’ interpretation of a classic like ‘Dual EP’ by C&G Southsystem, the project created by Gaetano Parisio and Marco Carola. Honey puts all her Chicago background into this version and by adding vocals she perfectly manages to make two different schools coexist, the Neapolitan one and the Chicago one. The result is simply sublime. It’s a debut also for Adriana Lopez, an absolutely respected artist in the techno scene for her extremely quality music. Her interpretation leaves no room for doubt and her remix is dark and hypnotic at the same time. Adriana gave her best and the delivery it’s just outstanding.
The grand finale takes place with the digital bonus track by Ben Sims, ’Carnival Part One’ re-edited by Shlomi Aber and this is definitely the icing on the cake! If you are a DJ you’ll immediately desire to play this track as soon as possible. His edit is just perfect leaving intact the original vibe of the British legend’s track. Its tribal groove echoes the early 2000s sound. For those who love the genre this is unmissable!
Shlomi Aber weighed in about his remix of Ben Sims and contribution to the re-launch of Conform Records:
“I am more than happy to be part of such a great project by Gaetano and Conform for the second time, and what can be better way to do it than remixing one of my favourite artists classics on the label, Ben Sims’ Carnival Part One”
