Union Jack - ‘Cactus’ 2017 Remixes [PLATMU96] 1. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Jonno Brien Remix) 2. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Adam Kent Remix) 3. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (OOOD Remix) 4. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Airwave’s Dark and Long Mix) 5. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Quietman Remix) 6. Union Jack ‘Cactus’ (Original Mix Remastered) Originally released in 1994, ‘Cactus’ is regarded as one of Union Jack’s finest moments. 23 years on, despite a plethora of requests, no remixes have ever been commissioned…until now. Irish Techno DJ/Producer and rising star Jonno Brien originally got the ball rolling last year when he sent in his remix out of the blue. It was quite simply too good to be ignored. Carl Cox, who was one of only a handful of DJ’s to be sent the mix, hammered it worldwide and included it as one of his highlights at the Closing Party @ Space, Ibiza. Adam Kent serves up a driving semi-spangled tech houser. Psychedelic sorcerers OOOD remain faithful to the prickly original but slam it into the 21st planet and beyond. Airwave’s Laurent reappears with an extended gloaming exploration into Cactaceae cornucopia. After a long hiatus, Quietman’s Laurence and Wilf emerge from a shimmering mirage with a sublime slice of desert sunrise. ‘Cactus - 2017 Remixes’ will be released 12th June 2017 on Beatport. Global release 27th June 2017 on Platipus. https://www.beatport.com/release/cactus-2017-remixes/2029590 http://www.junodownload.com/products/union-jack-cactus-2017-remixes/3441490-02/ Simon BerryTech HouseTranceAirwaveJonno BrienAdam KentOOODQuietmanPlatipus

Well, he takes karate and can't tie his own belt, but...you know. But this was boring as hell. Thought I was being punished. It's early trance, but I get the same cringeworthy feeling when I listen to early Frontline Assembly. You cannot relax to it, it's not goa or psychedelic, and it doesn't put me in any form of "trance." I understand it is now 20 years old, but Hotel California is even older and that didn't suck. So taking the age of it out of the equation what is its appeal? Hearing the original Octopus (which was owned by the MWNN mix) was nice, but the rest sounded like electronic hammering. Perhaps this has nostalgic value. Reminds a lot of people of great parties or events. Maybe you had your first kiss or you lost your virginity to this album. None of this happened to me so that ain't gonna get me to like it. I am someone that can appreciate music regardless of the genre. Psychedelic, goa, rap (old stuff, new rap sucks), nu-metal (is it even new any more), pop (although that's getting harder and harder). But this does nothing for me.
