Chapter ll (The Beginning) - Modern Heads (Outis)

Title: Chapter ll (The Beginning)
Artist: Modern Heads
Label: Outis
Cat Number: Outis009
Genre: Dawn of Time Trance

1: Beginning (Claudio PRC Remix)
2: Beginning (Giorgio Gigli Remix)
3: Beginning (Donato Dozzy Remix)

Nobody does primitive techno trance quite like the Italians, and Modern Heads are the cream of the crop. Here we get three pitch perfectly idiosyncratically different takes on what’s really involved in a chiasmic, edgy, dramatic big room track with no sell out. I suppose the remixes not only up in level of intensity, but also in the relative prestige each producer currently has. This is no indication of ability or originality though, as Claudio PRC’s interpretation stands out simply due to it’s relative fragility and dramatic potential. Both Giorgio Gigli and Donato Dozzy step on the gas, producing more intense, driving versions, but it’s PRC’s that lives in the memory the longest.
