iiO has a new release out, Reconstruction Time – The Best of iiO Remixed.
For fans of DJ remixes, Reconstruction Time may offer the ultimate versions of iiO’s music. The CD features the remixes of iiO’s music that helped make iiO a name in clubs around the world.
You can view the video for iiO’s Rapture, below. We’ve also got something special for Synthtopia’s dance music fans. We talked with our contact for iiO, Lucy, and arranged for a free MP3 download of Rapture 2007 (Starkillers Remix).
The remixes on Reconstruction Time are for the most part minimal techno/trance takes on the originals. They often dispense with the harmonic progression and instrumentation of the originals, making the tracks all the more hypnotic. This approach works very well with most of the tracks, especially with their hit Rapture.
iiO is young to be putting out a “best of” CD, which reveals itself in the last three tracks, a Megamix and a couple of bonus tracks. These aren’t as strong as their hits, and the CD might have been stronger with a couple of alternate remixes of their hits.
You can also check out our review of their CD Poetica, which has the original versions of these tracks.
