Compilations / Renaissance Presents: Hernan Cattaneo- Sequential Vol.2
|Hernan Cattaneo – Sequential Vol.2
‘Hernan Cattaneo presents the latest instalment in his Sequential series. Two discs of expertly blended house that once again demonstrate his diversity, impeccable sourcing and unparalleled mixing ability. ’
With over 120 dates a year, Hernan Cattaneo is undoubtedly one of the busiest DJs in the world – not to mention one of the best. If proof were needed look no further than the latest volume in his Sequential series, an incredible double-mix CD that demonstrates why he’s regarded as one of the worlds best DJs and the undisputed people’s champion in his native South America.
Renowned for his smooth mixing and programming, ‘Sequential Vol.2’ sees Hernan draw on his far-reaching diary to feature a global array of tracks from Scandinavia, Holland, Germany, Israel, Greece and Argentina (of course!), alongside the obligatory stalwarts from England and America. The music itself naturally mirrors this diverse approach, expertly interpreting and marrying a Martin Buttrich remix with Israel’s Chaim’ or Romania’s Livio and Roby with Nic Fanciulli’s masterful remix of Francois DuBois, just to highlight a few of the many moments contained within. Hernan elaborates, “(this is)… a mix that mirrors Vol.1, beginning on an atmospheric, emotive tip, rising toward more peak-time fare. Along the way, I hope to have captured… (the aforementioned) diversity, alongside a few pleasant surprises and, most importantly, a true reflection of my current sound.”
And what a privileged sound it is; beyond an original production and intro remix from Hernan and studio partner John Tonks, he has also sourced 4 other tracks from friends who, at his behest, produced them exclusively for the album. The result – a whopping 6 exclusives – serves to further distinguish the compilation from the crowd, in particular, the ever-increasing bootleg culture of live mix sets.
