The Swiss, on the other hand, have to make things up a bit. As a DJ, Ripperton mixes and matches different styles – neo trance, deep & minimal mostly - but that openmindedness just sounds like a lack of focus here. The first five minutes wanders, changing feel each time a new element is introduced, as if Ripperton didn’t quite know what to do with the original. But don’t turn it off – there’s a very useful rally at the end when the track ditches the original completely to become a cauldron of flanged rubberband psychedelia reminiscent of Serafin’s ‘Starship Discoteque’ or early Luciano. Come to think of it, that is kinda Swiss.
Switzerland 3, Holland 2.
