Slow Techno : Sueno Latino - Sueno Latino (Illusion First Mix)

We could just write that and be done.

There are so many versions of this all time dance classic but this is vastly superior to all the others.

Quite possibly one of Derrick May's finest moments, yet many heads out there may never have heard this underground killer. The original is based upon a section of the epic (nearly an hour long) 'E2-E4' by Manuel Gottsching. It could be easy to say that what Sueno Latino did with the track was simple but making things look / sound simple is a pure talent.

Derrick May
goes to his melodic techno latino best here - opening with pads before launching into sparkling melodies, keys and chords. The melodies layer upon each other before the drums arrive. As the track progresses the piano becomes more apparent as do other harmonic beauties. Half way through, a short break leaves just the rhythm before a change of direction comes into play. Some quirky jumpy synth lines enter that add brilliantly to the track as it builds to a heavenly climax.

This is a rare joint these days but essential for your slow techno box or any record lovers collection.

Really wish that the founding fathers of Detroit techno would deliver us more tracks and albums in these modern days.
