"Cafe Del Mar (Remixes)"

Needing little (or preferably by now, no) introduction...

Needing little (or preferably by now, no) introduction, Cafe' Del Mar's (musical) journey from its'starting place, Wim Merten's 'Struggle for Pleasure' (1983 OST : The Belly of an Architect) to now, has been a long one. It entered the dance world via Kid Paul and Cosmic Baby's 1993 Eye Q released trance classic, found a global, lifetime audience via 3 in 1's 1998 remix on Hooj, and has ended up here, back in the world of quasi - classical, with HEO's minimalist, atmospheric, slow building take.
On the remix front, Bristol don's Borai and Denham Audio take no prisoners, with two muscular breakbeat versions, neither of which get too caught up in melodic matters, preferring to re explore and then doubledown on the tracks' dancefloor dynamics.
Drifting down very different musical pathways, Steve Weston's two mixes combine sparkly synths with some of the original melodies for compelling new takes on these now familiar themes, whilst still managing to sound like he's contributing something new to this long told story.

Written by Paul Schmitz-Moormann & Harald Bluchel.
Main melody based on Struggle for Pleasure by Belgian composer Wim Mertens.
