Review:

 

Once in a while I wonder if psytrance can evolve so much more. What will

happen next? Has everything been done before? NO! It´s still room for

experimentation and inovation! Juno Reactor is a band that improve their

very special sound all the time, and when I found this 12" in 1999 my

jaw dropped through the floor, down two stairs, and finally it struck

ground! I was really impressed and almost stunned. The sound of

"Pistolero" is something completely new (or old?) and I think most

psytrancelisteners may have some problems with accepting this new sound.

Is it really psytrance? I don´t really know and I don´t really care

either. When I put the needle to this record I get teleported into the

movie "Desperado" (with Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek). It´s dust and

guns, warm beer and sweaty mexicans everywhere :-D This 12" contains

three remixes: "Man With No Name Remix" (10/10), "Fluke 'Hang 'em High'

Remix" (7/10) and "Headrillaz 'Sandinista' Remix" (5/10). To be honest,

the only remix that can be labeled as being some sort of psytrance is

the MWNN-Remix but that one is really mindblowing. I think that the

acoustic mexican guitar flavours this track beyond what any "normal"

psytrance synthsound can do. Normally when we talk about guitars in

Psytrance we mean som angry ones just on top of everyting else, not this

kind of melodic soloinstrument. Some may find this track oozing with

cheese but I think it´s just awesome and those samples of gunshots are

really cool. I truly like the female voice speaking in spanish too,

really hot and sexy :-) The Fluke-Remix is slower and the rhythm feels

"SKA-ish" and "DUB-y", good but not great. The Headrillaz-Remix is cool

jazzy BIG BEAT, not too impressive. I love this record and my girlfriend

is crazy about it too. I must also recommend the album "Shango". I think

there´s some more remixes available on a CD-maxi, a "Tarantino-Remix"???

Well, you´ll have to find that out yourself :-)

Crap. I always thought that tracks 1-2 of Shango were sheer horror and now

this... my god, what have they done?

As this track is also on the Shangoo Album , you don't need to buy this one,

but it is great music anyways. Nothing for the people with the bumbum horizon,

but something for all those who like new innovative tunes. Really nice track,

Juno Reactor belongs to the few real ARTISTS....

First time I listened to it I thought : hey, what's that junk ?

Then I read the name of the artist on the cd and ... :blink: Juno

Reactor ?

So I gave it a try .

Listened to it some times ...

... and still dunno what to think.
