Tony Scott, aka Percy X, released some serious Techno on the label over the years. Pushing a tough, stripped and jacking array of beats and bass through the Electronic channels, Percy X released 3 albums on the Soma imprint; Spy X, Gain & Wheres The Music. The original X-Traks were his first ever release, back in 1995, and what a release to start with. In this release Joris Voorn and Regis step up on the remixes paying their respects to PERCY X.
Up first is the unstoppable Joris Voorn. One of the biggest House and Techno producers around, Joris has always been a firm favourite of the label, so he is welcomed with open arms on this package. He delivers a shuffling and percussion laden take on the Percy X original. Rim shots a plenty join the stabs and strings in a classic Joris Voorn remix.
Regis is of Techno legend status. Working his acclaimed Downwards label and also now running the much hyped Sandwell District, Regis has stayed true to his deep, yet often tough sound. In his remodel of X-Trak 1, Regis keeps a massive kick drum rolling behind those famous stabs. Soft and subtle synths sweep through the track adding a wondrously spacey feel that brings atmosphere and class.
The X-Trak 1 Remixes EP is a beautifully balanced affair from two unreal techno producers.
