For its forthcoming episode, Espacio Cielo presents “Acid Rhythm” by Italian stallion Francesco Mantovani aka Csk (SXDNS080). The seasoned DJ and producer has been on the road for quite some time – since 1991, to be more precise –, which means he has amassed a plethora of influences during his journey. In his works, for instance, it is notable the use of elements from his rave era combined with “Indie” attributes, probably absorbed during more recent times. The result is an interesting concoction with a retro but fresh aura that has been released on vital labels such as Ombra International, Emerald & Doreen, Dogs & Vultures, NEIN, Maleante, and Secret Fusion, just to name a few.
For his debut on the Spanish powerhouse, Csk, who is also a label owner (Csk:Beat), invited two other fellow honchos for the remixes duties: Tronik Youth (SXDNS050) and Parissior (SXDNS206/FREEDL043), coincidently the bosses of the two imprints on which we released the first instalments of our Takeover series, NEIN and Espacio Cielo.
Premiered here, Sir Neil Parnell’s interpretation of the title track takes the theme to a darker realm, inhabited by creepy six-legged creatures who love to dance 24/7, hence the necessity of having such a number of limbs. While the original delivers a more upbeat atmosphere, the remix boasts its beauty through a more introspective and acid aura. The main ingredients of the original are still there but now clad with a black cloak.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
