Forget Me Not is an excellent techno track bordering on tech house. It has excellent stabs, groovy percussion and some top vocals to boot. It’s sound crosses boundaries of the new techno sound and the old skool. It’s the sort of track that could be played early on or easily the last track of the night.
Listening to Forget Me Not you can quickly understand why these guys have been in the Beatport charts on many occasions, their sound is pure class.
Remixes appear courtesy of DJ Ant (also known as Chicago Loop), Czech Republics man of the moment Miquel, the very well known Slovenian producer Veztax and the hardworking techno guru Wyrus.
The DJ Ant Remix is a belting thundering big bassline remix, that simply blows you away in the same way the original does.
Miquels Remix takes the original and molds it into Miquels unique sound with a slightly more tech house feel.
The Veztax Remix is a sexy deeper techno remix, but still keeping the punch to boot.
The Wyrus remix is another big room techno remix that he is getting a great name for.
All in all. Another massive release for Yin Yang and another great release for you to spin out.
