Re-creating a classic is not the easiest thing to do...
The 90s and 00s have a lot to answer for...they gave us many of these instant classics, some which stood the test of time and some which went under the radar. There was just so many of them...
Circa 2012, and Bio label head Vince Watson has taken a classic from the early 00s and gave it his firm stamp of remix approval.
Colin McNeils Deep Magenta Stars, originally came out as part of a mini-LP for Sonar under the name K15. Fusing many genres, it was a beautifully crafted slice of electronic experimentation, but the standout track was the Jean Michel Jarre inspired Deep Magenta Stars.
10 years on, having spent the last decade creating music for the TV and Film industry, Colin McNeil is reborn.
With EPs for several other top labels already signed up, Deep Magenta Stars is the beginning of the next chapter in this Glaswegians music career.
On hearing this, Vince Watson quickly stepped in and offered his now burgoning remix talents and a chance to release it on his currently on fire Bio label.
Launching the EP with the remix, using all the key elements of the original, it wastes no time in putting down its stamp as a summer classic. Huge subs were added to the original basslines, and that VW drum groove gets laid down underneath building in a big way for the breaks which are dramatic and must be from one of Colins Sci-fi movies...This is what its all about.
Following this, Colin decided to have the full 13min original track on the release in all its splendour. Beginning with that 1970s Jean Michel Jarre-esque Sci-fi intro, a full 5mins of electronica to adore before the those bass tones kick in and the tracks underlaying deep chords start to build into something special. The anticipation is intense and then your on the journey...the rest is for your own personal experience :)
This is gonna be huge...join us.
