DESCRIPTION

Renaissance recruit Tale of Us for the second the second edition of their quarterly-century celebrations.

With the first release in this series occupying #1 status for 6 weeks last summer, Renaissance are back with the second instalment of their 25th Anniversary ‘The Remix Collection” project. For the follow-up to Solomun’s immense reworking of Age Of Love, Renaissance have bagged more Techno royalty in the shape of Italian duo Tale Of Us, to take on the huge task of remixing another iconic 90’s classic.

The track in question is the legendary ‘Café Del Mar’ by the 90’s trance project, Energy 52. Much alike the previous remix by Solomun, it seems Tale Of Us also have their work cut out for them, as this track has had no shortage of remixes over the years. However, the popularity of ‘Café Del Mar’ is not simply reflected through its remix roster. Named after the iconic bar at the heart of the Ibiza clubbing scene, it was the soundtrack to the rave-culture movie, ‘Human Traffic’ in 1999. In addition to this ‘Café Del Mar’ later went on to be voted #1 in MixMag’s 2001 “500 Best Tracks Ever” list.

With this second remix, Tale of Us take the classic elements that made Café Del Mar such a huge track in the 90’s, bringing them into the present-day with big licks of bass and a huge crescendo. Carrying forward the focus of the series, this remix refreshes the iconic track for a new generation of listeners. Undoubtedly, as with the original, it is sure to be the soundtrack of Ibiza this summer.

With the first release in this series occupying Beatport #1 status for 6 weeks last summer, Renaissance are back with the second instalment of their 25th Anniversary ‘The Remix Collection” project. For the follow-up to Solomun’s immense reworking of Age Of Love, Renaissance have bagged more Techno royalty in the shape of Italian duo Tale Of Us, to take on the huge task of remixing another iconic 90’s classic.
