I know this isn't strictly prog but i also know most of you guys here would be interested in this...

Christian Smith mixes - Renaissance Platform

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Techno don Christian Smith launches a brand new album concept for Renaissance – Platform, a mix that takes inspiration from the classic Detroit sound and the contemporary dancefloor…

Having made his name as a true heavyweight of the techno scene with a string of seminal productions to his name, Christian Smith is undoubtedly one of the best-respected names in the genre. Often collaborating with his long-time studio partner, John Selway, Christian’s work has set the benchmark for quality techno; as his releases with Josh Wink’s ‘Ovum’ imprint, John Digweed’s Bedrock, Steve Lawler’s ever-innovative Viva Music and of course, Renaissance, attest. Over the last few years Christian has developed his relationship with Renaissance, with two EPs under his belt. Now he launches the new series ‘Platform’, which has been designed to allow the freshest talent from the scene to shine, and there is surely none more deserving to kick things off.

“I wanted to do something special… that stands the test of time, but that has not been done for Renaissance before.” – Christian Smith

To achieve this he has given each mix of this two-disc package a different flavour. Devoting the first CD to Detroit techno, Christian “picked tracks that are produced by European artists that are heavily inspired by the early Detroit sound.” He mixes up the hypnotic groove of Radio Slave’s remix of the Humate classic ‘Love Stimulation’ with standout tracks from Stimming, Nic Fanciulli & Steve Mac. Christian also adds a generous helping of his own unreleased original production to create a shimmering soundscape, that is as beautifully crafted, as it is compelling.

The second disc represents Christian in a more peaktime, club environment - big records that convey the energy that he always brings to the dancefloor. Incorporating tracks from such production luminaries as Timo Maas, Cirez D and Guy J (as well as a further sprinkling of previously unheard material from his own studio) this CD is best described by Christian himself:
“At the end of that day it’s all about a good party and this is exactly what this second cd is to me.”
– We couldn’t agree more.

Just bought this today.. surprised to see a few of CS's own tunes that still haven't been promoted as "released" yet, namely Indecent Exposure - bit of a monster!

Both CDs pump by the way, very tasty collection

Listened through this a couple times now and im suprised how good it is, I can't see this "detroit" vs "banging" techno distinction but it's not like I care The Psycatron tracks are absolutely mental (though i've never heard of the guys) really really loving Tipping Point

Also, those unreleased tracks were promoted for this release itself it seems, according to the promo note that I got - maybe their coming out on Renaissance?

Picked this yesterday and have listened to both discs. Both have a really nice rumble and groove to them,

First disc has a cool housey feel to it, the second pumps it out pretty hard right through to the end and doesn't go up its own ass at all which is something I worry about when I buy tech compilations.
Well, we all probably should have listened more intently when Michael Jackson repeatedly advised us how bad he was.

I'm loving his remix of Carl Craig's "At Les" - specifically the "Tronic Treatment" remix (as heard on J-Z's recent Essential Mix) - but I'm aching for it to be released!

Does anyone have any confirmation on it's release date? Juno have it releasing on Tronic on June 7, but I've also seen a comment on it being available on May 26th - but have no idea through whom? Gettin' desperate....

Yeah Carl Craig - At Les (Christian Smith Remix) is a tune.. Hernan Cattaneo closing with it in Sydney was awesome.

Amen to that, it does sound like it'd be the perfect closer. I'm hoping Zabiela throws it in somewhere at Laundry next weekend.

Yeah, I was cheerin' - second last track of the night, was great to see the crowd go off to it. Was thoroughly impressed by his set - saw him at Arq a few years back and it was a totally different vibe and style. I guess that's whay he's the Wizard aye?

I think they released on Beatport the Monday after Zab's gig, must've picked them up within hours of it going up - stoked.

Yeah it did get a really good reaction on the night up in the courtyard. I've only seen him once before at We Love Sounds last year which really first introduced me to him. Arq gig would of been epic.

Epic was certainly one word for it... I think it was a 4 hour set at least, started at 1am or 2am... I'd never been to Arq before, so I don't know if it's normally that loud or just Zab's riding the red... but that sound system is intensely powerful - we were grateful we brought earplugs.

Despite being sober for all of it, I can't remember much of it in detail - it was just one long, intense ball of techy energy - not very many light moments or chilled out periods - it really didn't let up the whole night.

Christian Smith mentioned on Twitter recently that he dropped his remix of Umek's Lanicor when he played in Slovenia recently. Pretty keen to hear that one!
