"When Guy J's 'Skin' hit #2 on Beatport, it was a defining moment. Beatporters had spoken loud and clear, deafening the shrill cries of infant bloggers. The Isreality EP was a hit for Turbo, and we were amazed to see a lush, proggy track outsell most of our heavily hyped 'bangers'. After that success, Guy's manager sent me a bunch of new tracks, many of which ended up on the critically acclaimed Esperanza LP. 'Shaman' was my favorite of the bunch. We could have just released it, but next-level A&R is about more than choosing tracks. It's about choosing eras, and we needed to finish nu-rave before we could begin the tropic-o-bongo house revolution of 2009. Credit the Turbo administrative vacuum for sitting on a track this good for so long, until great remixes are done, and the world is ready. Tiga and I have both played it towards the end of some very special sets in the last year. It has a nice type of 'soft' impact. It somehow manages to add energy to the crowd without being louder than the track before it. To the tired ears of veteran DJs, that's a rare pleasure. There are also some great remixes in this pack. A subtle, punchy rework by Mohan Das; an extremely playable, deep, dubby mix from the venerable Cari Lekebusch." -- Thomas Von Party
