Jean-Michel Jarre – Oxygene 8 (US Promo 12″)

Full on techno\trance\house from four mixes (with no filler). Released in 1997 as a taster for his “Oxygene 7-13” album. Italian Duo Dado and Gallo Salsotto (who did the X-Files Theme -coming soon on here!) Give the track a light Balearic vibe. Hani used breakbeats to build up a suitably analogue homage.

Standout mix is the 12 min journey that is The Sunday Club’s (Stuart King & Marc Mitchell from The Channel Islands) take on it not just this but most of Jarre’s style, ambient in places but a fine example of late 90’s Progressive Techno. Takkyu Ishino’s mix is quite noisy, full of techno clatter, the weakest of the 4.
