The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
For people familiar with the series, ReWind’s quirkier features and genre variety will not be a surprise, but for those of you who are newer to the program (so to speak), I’ve prepared another trip down the less beaten paths of electronic music. This time, we’re getting off at Techno station for a 1993 acidic slab of sound.
With a career spanning over 25 years, French DJ & producer Laurent Garnier had a big impact on the development of dance music in general, using his turntable skills to craft sets blending Acid House, Techno, Disco and even some Jazz, much to the delight of club goers. I could have gone for a more recent production, but I felt like it was much better to aim straight for the treasure chest, so I settled on one of his earlier hits.
Wake Up is as groovy as a techno track can get, with its unmissable acid component chugging along in the background. While the simplicity of the track might be off putting to some, I think it’s actually quite satisfying to listen to, and if you’re curious, check out the sample below. Who knows, you might even set this as your alarm clock sound.
See you next week. 🙂
