This is the very first time I personally hear the Tech House and Electro DJ Claude Vonstroke playing a minimal track. The deep jungle-themed (sorry for my poor interpretation) minimal track called Scarlet Macaw was released today and really caught my attention when I pressed the play button at Beatport.
There are three tracks in the release; the Original Mix, Edgar Dirksen Remix and finally the Scarlet Macaw Unstrung which is a simple modification of the original mix (no strings etc). I really like the Edgar Dirksen remix, it’s highly experimental and still defines some mellow melodies throughout the song. The song reminds me of some dance track, but I can’t put my finger on which track it is. It might be some old trance track that had a similar melodic pattern. Maybe a Ferry Corsten track, or DJ Jurgen!?
By the way, where is DJ Jurgen at? I found two tracks at Beatport (Wicked Waves) which has been made by DJ Jurgen. And they were released on 2005-01-01. I am not convinced… the fact that he has retired from the Electronic Music business… that can’t be true! :| Okey, I am not t h a t worried. We still have plenty of talented fellows out there! :mrgreen:
And one more thing: I miss my blue Strictly Trance CD. I bough it in Holland. It was before 2000. Probably in 1999. The place was Rotterdam. That was the early years of me being introduced to the trance scene, and I started making some crazy rave music. I tapped the tempo and wrote it down on the CD folders. The early years of everything :)
