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.
By now you must’ve figured out that ReWind has become a bit of a playground for me, a place where I can feature whatever old (or somewhat newer) tracks happen to get my attention. As with anything about the site, it might be the case that I stumble upon a track purely by accident, but if I like it, I’ll definitely put it on here for you folks to also have a listen. You’ve seen no genre constraints put in place for this series, so that does give me a little more liberty to experiment. For this particular feature, I’d like to focus on a genre that has only entered my playlists in the past year or so: Breaks.
The track I’d like to bring to your attention was produced by Jay Salts and Brian Johnston, better known to you and me as Prizm & Eclipse. Entitled Genesis, this particular production was the opening track for the duo’s Intelli-Funk artist album released in 1999, then, a year later, it saw a single release under Jay’s Millennium Recordings, along with a trancier remix from Andy Hughes. In 2001, this aptly-named track was licensed to Christopher Lawrence as the opener for mr. Lawrence’s United States Of Trance compilation.
To say this has been stuck on a replay loop would be a pretty big understatement. The build, the acids, the breaks, every damn thing about it is precisely where it needs to be. It’s tracks like these that make me dedicate what free time I have to this site because the reward is so much greater in the end.
Although, I can’t quite believe it as I’m writing this, the full length track is very generously being offered by Prizm as a free download. This doesn’t happen everyday, so if you’re as much of a fan of this as I am, grab your complimentary copy here. Also, if you want to find Prizm, head over to his Soundcloud, YouTube, Twitter or Facebook accounts or his personal site for more.
Until next week, I’ll leave you with Genesis in all its glory:
Country: US / Style: Breaks / Year: 2000 / Label: Millennium Recordings
