Balance 026 - Hernan Cattaneo.
Everyone else has one.

Balance 026 Mixed By Hernan Cattaneo
Posted By: Tom, 22nd August 2014



“I’m still playing the same as I’ve always done, and that is melodic and deep music – never too hard or fast. I’ve been into DJ’ing all my life and I always put personality as number 1 and crucial for any DJ, so I’ve never been into musical trends.” – Hernan Cattaneo

Some seek a permanent state of hype, while others like Hernan Cattaneo find liberation in being freed from the shackles of such intense scrutiny. The Argentine’s refreshing approach to DJ’ing and making music has ensured that over a decade on from the time he exploded into the public consciousness, he’s as engrossing a force as ever. His contemporary sound continues his love of rich melody and atmospheric textures, but draws on possibly a wider palette of producers and styles than ever.
“It’s been GREAT years for melodies and thankfully even German techno producers are not afraid to use them anymore” he says. “As a result, I think the music now is the best since the early 2000s. I think the Israeli producers are the most interesting ones, from established producers like Guy Gerber and Guy J to newer people like Chaim or Guy Mantzur, Hakimonu, Sahar Z…”

With the renewed interest in what some might call ‘progressive’ styles – Innervisions, Life & Death et al – the time for him to present his enduring sound to the world through this stunning Balance compilation couldn’t be better timed.

Disc 1 harks back to the golden age of downtempo music in the 1990s, evoking classic Cafe Del Mar and Northern Exposure mixes with its sumptuous selection of languid soundscapes. It’s a style that has sadly slipped from the spotlight, coinciding with the death of the chill-out room and the diminished ‘Balearic’ focus of Ibiza in recent years – meaning that Cattaneo’s choice of direction feels all the more special as a result. Indeed, he reaches back to 1999 for the low-slung groove of Boards Of Canada’s opener, before moving into a slew of exclusives and reworked versions of some of his favourite tracks from recent DJ sets to suit the chuggier tempo.

“I started asking some producer friends to make special versions of some of their tracks for the albums, and I’ve been very pleased with the results. I really like the way those tracks interact with the others and in many cases, the new downtempo mixes are even better than the original ones.”

It makes for a highly refreshing approach. The mesmerising new versions give these ethereal dancefloor tracks stunning new context and life – like Chaim’s hypnotic Slow Dance Mix of Blue Shadow - while haunting vocal tracks like Weval’s Out Of The Game provide contrast to the glistening arps and top lines of Mano Le Tough and John Tejada, and a smattering of classics dear to Cattaneo’s heart, such as Gui Boratto’s Half Life. As the mix moves towards its conclusion, the energy and tempo nudge their way towards the clubbier climes of the second disc, culminating in a stunning rework of Guy J’s twinkling Dizzy Moments.

Both mixes are littered with exclusive new productions from Cattaneo and his production partners Soundexile, infusing the mix with an even higher level of his musical DNA and boldly demonstrating what a force he continues to be in the studio. The driving bass of their own Into The Edge propels Disc 2 into life before we plunge into the deeper climbs that he’s so renowned for. More exclusives abound from the duo and others alike, a gently euphoric warmth coming over the mix through their own Parallax and Fugazzi, continuing into driving reworks of Guy J and James Teej as we hit the sweet spot of the mix. New material from Guy Mantzur powers us through towards the finale, the subdued beauty of Cattaneo and Soundexile’s Lotus rounding the compilation off with finesse after a rousing crescendo.

Cattaneo has constructed a truly incredible chapter of the Balance Series, beautifully sequenced and mixed and packed full of stunning new material that can’t be heard anywhere else. Such attention to detail and quality should come as no surprise from one of the true masters of the game.

"This isn’t just the best mix I’ve reviewed all year, I would argue that this is the best progressive mix of 2014 by far, and possibly the best mix Balance has ever released. Hernan Cattaneo has somehow managed to make progressive house relevant again and showcased it’s unrivalled power in influencing moods and emotions. He has created a level of quality that goes beyond being entertaining. This mix is profound. It may go down in history as one of the best mixes of all time. Gracias Hernan Cattaneo! 10/10 Perfect"

Well, this is the first time I've logged on to ITM in years and I was going to post a thread asking if anything lately has come close to Henry's Balance 19 release.

This should be good nonetheless.

I loved Henry's balance but this may just pip it at the post. Another brilliant review !!


Quote:

Zentripz (WMNF 88.5fm Tampa Bay, US) (Presenter): so.... this happened. i listened to this and swooned. like really slumped back in my chair in delight. with a type of audio paraplegia making me unwilling to move except to the beat of this wonderful mix. hernan is a great dj, this is a long proven fact, but this mix, cements him into the history books. recently.. i mean since the beginning the balance mix series has offered great dj's an outlet for pure creativity and here it shows in spades. this is perfection and giving it a rating form 1 - 10 is insulting. adj flawless, superlative excellent foolproof ideal impeccable pure splendid superb absolute accomplished aces adept consummate crowning culminating excelling expert finished sound sublime utopian

And this is exactly what Balance does. We know how good our Balance is , but it's just so nice to see it in writing internationally

Only 9 days till the Australian tour begins . !!

One of the reasons I love Hernan's CDs is that they do stand the test of time well. But i would assume that Henry's balance will alway be very special.

^^ Well we know what I feel . The last two releases are just stunningly, beautifully sculptured pieces of music :hooray.

Guess we can't all agree all of time

Btw if they are so forgettable how come you haven't forgotten them?? Or it is just that you have forgotten how many times you have told us

Got offered to listen to a Promo of this today, refused !!! I am hanging out to hear it at it's very best . !! Wish it was available as a DSD

Probably more to do with the fact that Renaissance was in its death throes than anything else.

I didn't say I didn't love then, just don't consider them timeless - I can't even remember what tunes are on those mixes.

Some of his mixes are timeless, others are not.

I want to give this a really good thorough listening before I give any reviews. Plus I would like to hear from others.

What I will say is that the whole thing is quite different to the last one.

All pre-orders have been shipped registered post prior to release date.

If you have not received it, then I suggest you email the Balance Music Store, so we can follow-up for you. Obviously if you pre-ordered early enough, you would've received the CD before others.

Digital release will be in-line with the global release date, which is October 13th. The only reason it is available earlier in this country is because of the Australian Hernan tour and it being an Australian label, and we also do it as a thank you for local fans of the series.

Unfortunately JB Hi Fi only support the release in key stores and via their online store.

Thank you for the support.

The first disc is unbelievably good. Some of the music is mind bending, some of it ethereal and uplifting while it's all deep and very well produced.

Not sure about the second disc so much. Will need to give it a few more listens. There's nothing wrong with it, in fact all of the tunes are rock solid but it hasn't grabbed me like the first disc immediately did.
Well, we all probably should have listened more intently when Michael Jackson repeatedly advised us how bad he was.

only just got around to this. my thoughts:

disc 2 is exceptional and really displays where prog is in 2014, and the sort of sound im really into currently.
disc 1 however doesn't do it for me. Im not saying its bad, its just a very tired and done to death style of the whole 'electronica/left field/downtempo' vibe that, while is nice musically, it has been done over and over again.

It has been done a lot, but so has a straight up mix CD of prog/techno...and I reckon this one has been done pretty well, better than his Renaissance disc 1 offerings imo. I like that it means the package has variety, from moody blissed out beats, to thumping dancefloor treats...gives it more longevity/listenability imo.

No one has done it as good as Danny Howells GU 24/7 Disc 1 or Zabiela Life Disc 1 though

i wouldn't have thought that the first CD you'd necessarily call electronica/down tempo

certainly not in the same breath as Zabiela

it's just house music. yeh the BPM is slower, but it's not really left of centre.



I love it.

Couple of tracks at the beginning, but then on, it's just slow mo house/deep...love it, too...but I'm a big fan of that sound (and Hernan) so it's hardly surprising!

Zabs and Howells 24/7, that's your downtempo/electronica!

This is going to sound weird. Some cds do just sound exactly the same every time I play them . But the cds /mixes etc that sound different to me every time I play them are the ones I love forever. They seem to respond to me personally at any given time. It is like a gift from Hernan . These cds in particular are very much like that.

Hernan always says listen several times before you judge his work and I understand that, he can be so much more complex. But he can’t help that, it’s him and a lot of the reason we love his work

CD 1
The first time I played it overwhelmed me a little. It was so different to Renaissance 17 and Renaissance 17 is very important to me . So maybe I wasn't quite ready for this one. But I have now listened to both Cds many ,many times and every time I find something new and wonderful , another track stands out to me and I know I will also listen to this for many years to come as well. A lot of the tracks will become favourites but the ones that leap out every time on CD 1 are Solitude, Blue shadow, Happy to be sad , Out of the game Sponges , Lunar and of course Dizzy moments. In fact there is only one that doesn’t really appeal and that is Yews -believe, belong

CD 2
Possibly my favourite at the moment. Although that could change I love every track . Changes , Underwater , Parallax, Disclosure , Imaginarium and Lotus are the most wonderful for me right now.

I seem to remember saying at some stage that I thought Renaissance 17 was more from Hernan’s feminine side. This one has a much more masculine , and dare I say sexy , power and emotion !! D

As always, beautifully mixed and programmed ! Great, great, progressive music in every sense of the word. !

don't get me wrong, i don't dislike disc 1, it just sounds dated, regardless of what you would term the genre as. It just didn't grab me as much as the second one.
I reserve the right to change my mind after a few more listens.

Not really blown away by anything on either CD, but that's probably just because I've moved on from what HC has been doing for the past few years.

Find myself egging on CD2 to break into another level, but then it takes a step back and throws some fluffier stuff around and loses me.

There are lots of good tracks and of course it's well mixed and a polished production, but not my cuppa.

Will just have to thrown on Perfecto South America or Sequential 2 if I want the Hernan I like.

You have moved on but you are going back to South America and sequential. ??? That doesn't quite make sense.
