Radical Distortion - The Dreamer (Cactus Arising Remix) 2. Fiery Dawn - Mahakala (Cactus Arising Remix) 3. InnerZone - Universal Enlightenment (Cactus Arising rmx) 4. Spectrum - Medi teranno (Cactus Arising rmx) Cactus Arising is a Greek duo which had their debut Star Storm a few years ago and it uh...hmmm. Well let's just stay it failed to impress. So now they release a digital Ep of remixes on prodigious Timewarp Records. The Dreamer- The original on Suntrip's Opus Iridium by Radical Distortion was a smash with a superb lead melody. It never let up. This remix is a little more subdued but still contains good melodies. Mahakala- Fiery Dawn's track found on his Cosmic Ascension EP is a steady does of crackling 303. The remix is a layered treat that may rival the original. Furious! Good job! Universal Enlightenment- The next two tracks I have never heard so...blank canvas you know? It was a nice layered track, but had that...unfinished or raw quality. Decent, but not very distinctive. Medi Terrano- The little blurb on Discogs mentions that they like to close their sets with this track. And I can see why. There is a lot of energy here with a nice balance of power and dreamlike quality. Great track! While I wasn't a fan of their debut this little digital ep shows that they have talent and they understand that a remix isn't just a carbon copy. That alone endears them to me. While not superb, it's a good little ep and I look forward to their next album. Timewarp Records Bandcamp Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
