Christoph Caominh, aka Caltrop continues to release excellent music on Nude Photo Music. Good To See You draws heavily from Caltrop's influences - Italo, Synthpop, Kraftwerk, Moroder but manages to put it all together in something that sounds new and relevant. From sweeping resonant strings, Juno squelches, and a solid analog bass, the driving rhythms coupled with lush melodies make this track suitable for the ipod as well as the dancefloor. Ryan Bishop aka The Beat Broker follows up the original, slows the tempo down and brings a tropical Miami Vice vibe with gated reverb toms, funky disco percussion, and even more layers of lush analog synths with his Caltropical remix. Dumbstruc aka Jeremy Cohen, SubSensory Recordings remixer and top Portland underground DJ, strips the track down into a secret DJ weapon with percussive stabs, a massive kick, and dry, driving percussion. John Friend - Citymouse from San Francisco, supports with a spacious, melancholy cut that drops a massive resonant bassline straight out of underground raves from the early 90s. And closing out the release is a remix that nods in the direction of classic techno sounds from the past, and mixes it with a dash of the present minimal influence from Bay Area techno maverick Andy W - Mutor Soundsystem.
