Today the German Remix Group (GRG) released its fourth tribute-album. The new album is dedicated to the sounds of Chris Hülsbeck, and consequently the album is called
A Tribute to Chris Hülsbeck. It contains 19 tracks from CZ-Tunes, Dr.Future, Mitch van Hayden, SigmaZeven, Snake-TMF, SunSpire and Tronimal (guest remixer). It features many different styles, from 80s pop and dance up to orchestral sounds. This huge album, spanning over 90 minutes of play time, is not only their longest album (so far), it's also their first release of a double CD which can be downloaded digitally for free or listened dirctly to via the GRG website.

The ideal partner to Project Galway to celebrate the genius of Mr Galway himself, this CD is a slice of accomplished, hard-edged synth with a contemporary edge not blunted since its release. Highlights include a great dancey "Wizball" reminiscent of Wizball 2000 but with its own flavour (and a reverse attack that sends shivers down the spine), a Miami Vice that you can lose your consciousness in, and a full length Parallax that really conveys the thrill of the melodic ending of the piece.

It starts promising - immensely so, with a kind of "children at playground" background loop as the Giana Sisters theme opens with an eerie xylophone-ish instrument I could swear I've heard before in some horror movie or other, and it was a genuine surprise how well the theme fit to the creepy mood. "Okay," I thought, "it's a bit too fast, but I can live with that." And after a short while, it delivered... nothing. Nothing at all. About half a minute of eeriness, the melody shifts into the "generic remix" gear and stays there until the end. A little beat here, a little variation there, and we're done. There is one or two noteworthy points, likethe little twist around 1:23, but it's not nearly enough to pull it out of mediocrity; it's briefly promising, but it doesn't last.
