Track: Shine (Pierre's Chicago House Mix)
Artist: Midi Rain
Label: Vinyl Solution
Midi Rain is the pseudonym of John Rocca, a Londoner who had early success in the 80s with the synthpop group Freez. Being a musical prodigy of sorts, Rocca experimented with different sounds throughout the rest of the decade. Starting in the early 90s, his music took on a more techno-oriented sound. Under the Midi Rain moniker, Rocca produced Shine, an enjoyable progressive synth track with noticeable techno undertones. The undisputed killer remix comes courtesy of DJ Pierre. Pierre did a bang-up job deconstructing the original track and highlighting the very best elements. Big deep house sound, build-ups, piano licks and vocal dubbing are in full effect. Let your mind be your sun!
