|Victor Calderone - E=MC2 (CD Mix
is Victor Calderones first full length CD compilation that blends the more
commercially appealing aspects of dance music with Calderones deep tribal
underground house. The result is a terrific combination of artists skillfully manipulated
by Calderone that showcases his DJing ability.
The album opens with the Calderone dub version of Garbages Push It then flawlessly launches into the very appealing Johnny Vicious mix of Veronicas Someone To Hold. Dan Qs Aura Tribe as remixed by Club 69 serves as a bridge to Deborah Coxs Its Over Now Hex Hector Dub. Robbie Riveras Feel This gets things pumping for Kim Englishs Unspeakable Joy as remixed by Razor N Guido. Andrea Martins Share The Love, Giacomos Theme From Love (Hex Hector Mix), The Collaborations Do It Properly, Hyperdelics Are You Ready Tribal mix, Madonnas Sky Fits Heaven Calderone Future Mix all continue and add to the deep driving talents of Calderone. The last track, Peter Hellers Big Love (which brought in the Best 12 Underground Dance Record at the 2000 WMC) ends the set in a jazzy body & soul note that clears the listeners pallet.
course the CD is best appreciated by listening to it from beginning to end so that you can
capture the morphing and audio manipulating Calderone has mastered. With Victor at the
tables of these incredible mixes, a happy medium is achieved between underground and
commercial house. Now everyone can have Calderone spin at their parties, the only downside
is you already know whats coming.
E=MC2 will bring the best of that Calderone New York underground sound to all musically challenged back woods towns that will never see the light of Calderone mixing live.
