|November sees the UK launch of Tiësto's own label, Magik Muzik, which has already enjoyed huge success and support throughout Europe. Kicking off in fine style, the first release is the massive Umek track 'Gatex'. Umek is somewhat of a techno wonderkid, what with becoming a producer for Novamute in recent months, and this is definitely one of his biggest tracks. Originally released on Potential, Magik Muzik deliver five exclusive new remixes of 'Gatex' and include the classic original to boot. First up on remix duty we have the man
||himself, Tiësto, who adds a 4/4 kick and layers it up into a building techno monster. DJ Montana takes it further into a tech direction, turning the screw tighter, and completely messing it up with filters and sub. Oliver Lieb strips things down and reconstructs them in a sparse driving 4/4 tech-trance style. Umek offers up his own remix, keeping the feel of the original, but adding a more 4/4 element and old skool riff. DJ Le Blanc adds a more industrial take on the original to round the whole package off.
