NUKLEUZ TECH TRANCE CLASSICS 2011
'Alongside the uplifting trance sound we have been building on the other reputation Nukleuz started in the late 90s and early 00's, for tougher edged trance and techno (BXR). 'Nukleuz Tech Trance Classics 2011' is a showcase for the work of some of these classic artists alongside current leading lights and emerging talents coming through the UK label.
One of the biggest defining moment was Mauro Picotto returned to Media Records UK in 2007 and unveiled 'Ibiza Angel' as one of his string of new singles which was a rework of his classic track R.A.F. By Picotto & GiGi D'Agostino 'Angel's Symphony'. Rex Mundi's remix completed this package and gave the track a more club driven feel and caught the attention of Armin, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schultz, Kyau & Alberts, Ernesto vs Bastian, Mark Sherry, Sander van Doorn and Marco V.
After getting his first release played on BBC Radio 1 by Judge Jules, Will Atkinson immediately stood out as a great talent. We loved his style and searched him out on MySpace before signing one track and 2 remixes from him.
Organ Donors have been a part of Nukleuz since their formation and so it was only right to feature some of their classic tech-trance releases '4 Tribes' (taken from the Top 40 DJ Nation project and their artist album, 'Plastic Surgeons') & the Hertz remix of 'Wave Guide System'. In 2009 the boys called in artists they admire and friends to remix their whole catalogue signed to Nukleuz in a project titled 'Under The Knife'. There were so many killer reinterpretations of their tracks that it was hard to pick a favourite. But eventually I went for K90's mix of 'Locked Trance', Scot Project's remix of '99.9' & Fabio Stein's remix of 'In Power'. Check out their album to hear them all!
Other exciting additions to the label have been the return of S.H.O.K.K. and a strong set of releases from DJ Choose. Our first signing from Lasse was 'DJs Take Control', a collaboration with Michael Splint which hit #1 on Trackitdown and setup a long standing relationship of releasing high quality records. And my personal favourite Slinky and former Tidy Trax A&R man Lee Haslam's massive techy remix of BK's Top 40 hit 'Revolution' (which was the last vinyl only top 40 hit in the UK!).
For those of you looking for the harder edged material that came out of the world famous Italian offices of Media Records in the mid-90s and early 2000's which launched the careers of Mauro Picotto, Mario Piu, Gi-Gi D'Agostino, Joy Kitikonti, Cappella and CRW among others check out the forthcoming Trance Classics album.'
