After the debut album, ‘Leitmotiv’, from Berlin duo Puresque, Tresor Records marks its 250th release with a very special project indeed, ‘Infiniti - The Remixes’: a trilogy of classic cuts and new reworks from one of its original Detroit linchpins Juan Atkins. Dubbed as his “pure techno” project, Atkins produced two full-length albums under the Infinity moniker—The Infinity Collection, released by Tresor in 1996, and Skynet two years later. 16 years on and they are as relevant today as they were pioneering then, brought further up-to-date here with a series of fresh takes from some of techno’s pioneering and esteemed figures: Thomas Fehlmann, TV Victor, Function, Redshape, Sleeparchive and the re-release of dubtechno vanguard Moritz Von Oswald's remix of ‘Think Quick’, originally released in '94 on Metroplex.
The Orb’s Thomas Fehlmann picked two tracks, one in each album, to form a combo-mix. ‘Walking On Water’ and ‘Raindrops’ come together in an old-school sounding version. Tresor Records ambient stalwart TV Victor plies his production dexterity to present a hypnotic take on the gently elevating Thought Process. Part Two picks up the pace, heading further down the timeline with ‘Flash Flood’—originally released in 1995 as part of one of the label’s famous annual compilations, re-edited by Sandwell District’s Function. Skynet’s punchy classic on the flip, ‘Skyway’ rounds off the EP with a remix by techno’s masked crusader Redshape. Part Three concludes with a remix package of The Infiniti Collection’s brooding slow-burner ‘Think Quick’, backed with an offering from one of Berlin’s revered electronic practitioners Sleeparchive and the re-release of Moritz Von Oswald's remix, initially released on Metroplex in 1994 - a rarity.
