ABOUT THIS ITEM
The 'New Masters' is a fresh series on Nang which features DJs who are on the cusp of breaking into the big league. To help them along their way Nang are aiming to be the label that helps them put together their first DJ compilation CD. What better candidate to start with than Venice based demi-god-in-waiting and all round nice fellow Bottin. From early releases on Italy's Irma, to the seminal "Fondamente Nove" on Belgium's Eskimo Recordings, to his anthemic and worldwide-supported "No Static" on the Italians Do It Better label and his "Horror Disco" concept album on Bearfunk, the skillful producer and DJ has been quickly building quite a name for himself and he doesn't seem to be slowing down.
Things open up with "Electra Bregenz" from Austria's Kruder & Dorfmeister offspring Tosca. Bottin's mix taking the previously chilled out track and shifts the paradigm towards disco with a twist of dub and references to the early work of italo funk roots legend Tullio De Piscopo. Next is Norway's first disco officer Lindstrom with "Paaskelyd" with Bottin chopping the track in tiny slices and re-composing it in a new deeper form. Bottin's biggest hit to date "No Static" follows here in its 'Club Mix' version - previously available only on 12". Bottin was always one for the soundtrack influences and his mix of "Fantasy" from the The Emergency mines deep from the Morricone / Sergio Leone spaghetti western cave, whilst "Nightmoves" from Lost Valentinos is all Kano zapping synth and horror movie chic. Bottin's own "Planeti" gives away his boyhood admiration of Queen and Flash Gordon. John Carpenter gets the nod with Bottin's dancefloor mix of King DJs "Escape From New York".
