Cafe Del Mar - Orbital & Michael Mayer Remixes

Energy 52's "Café Del Mar" is one of the most iconic tracks in dance music. Over the years, "Café Del Mar" has achieved legendary status, regularly featuring in lists of the greatest dance tracks of all time; a cultural phenomenon, encapsulating the spirit of an era and influencing generations of artists and fans alike.

Now this iconic track is being remixed by two of the most revered acts in electronic music, Orbital and Michael Mayer. Orbital, the pioneering British electronic dance duo consisting of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, have continued to shape the electronic music scene since their emergence in 1989. Their remix is an ode to the golden age of rave, with clattering breakbeats and an ethereal synth line pulsing through its early stages before the iconic lead warps into view. A key figure in Cologne's electronic scene, Michael Mayer co-founded the influential Kompakt label, contributing significantly to its direction and success. For his interpretation, Mayer leans into head spinning, hypnotic rhythms, with tribal drums and the patiently evolving lead line building towards a climax that is more subtle but no less effective.


Matt says: Spine tingles and crotch flutters guaranteed when this one starts climaxing. "Café Del Mar" many argue, is the pinnacle of the trance genre, but Orbital still mange to squeeze some new life out of this well-hammered bona fide classic.
