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 fans of the more underground trance sounds, Perfecto Fluoro is no doubt a name that rings a bell. What some might not know is that Fluoro didn’t start out in 2011 with Paul Oakenfold’s Tokyo, but rather much, much earlier. In fact, it was in the early to mid 90s that this legendary name was first imprinted on vinyls from the likes of Man With No Name, Transa and others. For this particular track recommendation, let’s go back to 1995.
Despite the many aliases to pick from (Matrix, Disco Volante, Butler & Wilson, etc), I settled on Russel Cultart and Lawrence Cooke’s Floorplay moniker and started poking around through the back catalogue. What caught my eye was their 1995 Perfecto Fluoro (or rather, Perfecto ‘For Clubs‘) release entitled Automatic.
It came in 4 varieties, Original, 6am, Biff & Memphis, Biff & Memphis Dub mixes and was originally released by Transient Records and soon after picked up and licensed by the folks at Perfecto. Two decades in, and Automatic‘s still holding strong, with its simple but catchy melody and varied progression. The drums in the break give it a near tribal feel, exposing yet another facet of this ye olde production.
I’ve personally enjoyed the 6am Mix more than any of the others, so this is the one I’ll share with you people. Wrap your ears around the sample below and check whether you dig it.
See you next week. 🙂
