8/10 Ian Staff review, 04 October 2013
Tresor’s Archiv series returns with this double 12” by Greek producer Savvas Ysatis.
After releasing two albums for Tresor since 1999 these four classics and two remixes have been chosen by Ysatis and Tresor themselves and remastered beautifully. This will certainly appeal to fans of Tresor label mate Juan Atkins with its moody/deep house vibe full of rhodes piano and shuffling hi-hats.
‘Mar’s Bar’ is a classic-sounding, late night club cut. Flip over for a more uptempo booty shaker, ‘Bullwalk’ (beware! this is one of those dance records that changes rpm from A to B sides). Side D features the aforementioned remixes, the first from Detroit DJ and Mix/Phat Records founder Blake Baxter which is a thumping bass and strings club tune. Second mix is by Tresor mainstay Surgeon, a dark atmospheric version of the same track ‘Alright’, this is a great collection of smooth grooves from a genuinely pioneering label.
