This new reference in the Nein Records opens with the original version of ‘Tri Bal’ by Fred Berthet, a cut with a very slow tempo, dark, incisive and forceful percussions, and some soft and cosmic synths that accompany the recitation in French from Felix Palfray, than the gives a special and deep touch to the track, a hypnotic track.

The first remix comes signed by the collaboration between Apiento & LX with the so-called ‘French Mix’ with almost 9 minutes with a more high tempo, with all the darkness and hypnotism from the original, but now adds a touch closer to the dance floor, with some more tribal percussions, and the deep voice of the original with a sensual touch.

Permanent Wave duo sign a remake of the track of more 6 minutes, adding a new voices with Justine and new synths, dark and mysterious atmospheres take over the remake, a remake with slow combustion, more influenced by 80s dark sounds and adding a great acid lines, a magical and glossy remake.

And finally, Alda has a dance-oriented remix, by applying effects to voices, sounds more metallic and a more rhythmic synths, with atmospheres most taut and strange.
