Savvas Ysatis appears from the Tresor vault
Fourteen years and 145 releases since Savvas Ysatis first appeared on Tresor, the Greek producer returns to the seminal techno label with Archiv #08.
Earlier this year Juan Atkins resurrected Tresor’s dormant Archiv sub-label under his Audiotech alias after a 11 year hiatus. The label was only in activity for a short period of time between 2001 and 2002, reissuing classic tracks from the likes of Robert Hood, Jeff Mills, Chicago’s Chris ‘Bam Bam’ Westbrook and Eddie ‘Flashin’ Fowlkes, with Blake Baxter’s One More Time subsequently bringing the label to a close. Injecting more life into the Archiv series is Greek producer Savvas Ysatis – so far the only non-American to appear on the label – who helped Tresor deliver Archiv #08; four re-mastered originals and two remixes that were previously released around the turn of the century.
Known for his recent collaborative work with Taylor Deupree, three of Ysatis’ six tracks – “Mar’s Bar”, “On The Hook” and “Bullwark” – that appear on Archiv #08 have been cherry picked from the two albums he released on Tresor in 1999 and 2001, while side-C and side-D of the double vinyl package house the Alright EP which featured remixes from Blake Baxter and Surgeon’s dubby and melodic Kieth 4 Nat Mix. Listen to clips of the entire release below before it drops next week.
