Due for release on may 15th via Confused Recordings is Oliver Huntemann's new DJ-Mix "PLAY! 02 live - Rex Club / Paris" which has been recorded live on february 22nd of 2008. In difference to many re-edited and remastered mixes today this one is special as it transfers not only the music played out in this but also the crowds reaction, which was picked up by various mics placed in the legendary and 1991 established Paris venue during the set - so the whole thing sounds like as one was standing in the middle of the dancefloor, directly catching the vibe and groove and sweat and cheers and all that. Defo a unique idea technically that in a special way underlines the strong impact of Mr. Huntemann's selection that includes tracks like Martin Landsky's "Man High", his own "Paris", Shlomi Aber's "Sekur" alongside many others - a contemporary and up-to-date reflection of what so-called Minimal Techno is today that will be well appreciated by nightlife regulars and electronic homelisteners the same. Due to this recommended and check-worthy.
