Now, it’s looking like 2009 will be an even bigger year!
Once more, Christian Smith & John Selway show they are the masters of creating tracks that seem to push dancefloors ever upwards into ecstatic mass hysteria with “Mistral”. This time round they’ve found another variation of their genre-blurring sound, as hugely strong and big room as usual but with subtly different groove and a mysterious dark musical touch.
Christian Smith & John Selway are uniquely able to create huge tunes that appeal to a wide range of DJs - from the techno purists to the trance kings - and every credible DJ in between. There’s not many artists who regularly have such a diverse bunch as Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Dubfire, John Digweed, Sasha, Sander Kleinenberg, Roger Sanchez, David Guetta, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, all playing their releases.
On remix duty here is Amsterdam’s rising star, Anton Pieëte, who takes a slightly more subtle but no less infectious direction. He sits “Mistral” on a hypnotic tech groove that takes a deeper journey, and is entirely effective for setting up a different vibe in any DJs set. It’s already getting the thumbs up from Carl Cox,
