Soundprank lives up to his reputation as one of the hottest properties on the progressive scene with his Reloaded rework, a top-notch prog monster with a darker edge than many of his recent remixes. The original elements have been chopped and resampled into a new recipe, best served hot in the middle of the night.
Nick Brennan drops another prog bomb for mix 2. Delicate gated and delayed staccato synths bounce around on a seductive rubber sub bass while the delicate beats drive you forward towards the drop, where the original theme jumps out for a few sweet seconds before we're blasted in crowd-pleasing style towards the finish line.
3rd up it's French up-and-comer Petit Ange. The peaceful intro gives no hint as to the hypnotic techno workout to come, minimal but complex at the same time. The pressure builds and builds until the blissful release of the breakdown, where we're recharged just in time for the reprise.
Closing the 2nd package just as they opened the first, the Koan boys are back in the form of their side-project Roeth and Grey. This time they deliver a solid slab of tech-trance, grounded in four-to-the-floor techno but frequently injected with melodic elements from the original to create a seductive blend which takes us out in style.
Koan 公案，这个来自莫斯科的组合由 丹尼尔·罗素（Daniel Roeth）, 与 弗拉基米尔.谢多夫(Vladimir Sedov) 两位艺术家组成。 Koan 公案 这个名字听来就有点怪，想来是非常仰慕东方文化才取了这样的名字。Haiku 俳句、Tonka 短歌、Zen 禅、Koan 公案 这些日式东西经常被老外去引用，也许真的体味到什么，也许只是文化融合中的东风西渐罢了。在这里看来，Koan 公案 应该理解为作禅语中的心印。
(Circe's Touch Remixes vol. 2)于2011年12月5日发布，专辑总共收录四曲,一贯灵动的电音风格,又再度让听者深陷,Koan 公案 一手营造的迷幻深渊。
