When Donato Dozzy approached Bee Mask ‘s »Vaporware«, released on Room40 in 2012, he surely aimed for high grounds. With »Vaporware« Bee Mask had created a little marvel, more than 13 minutes long, full of ambient complexity, dense sequences and clear frequencies. It seems as if Dozzy didn’t quite know where to start or where to make concessions – hence, the result is not just a remix, but rather seven. The Italian DJ and producer doesn’t just variegate one individual theme in seven different steps. Instead, with every remake, he picks out a different mood from the original, prolongs and intensifies it, wallowing in bitter-sweet dances of ambient and synth-sounds. Even though this version of electronic music has been around for about 40 years now, Dozzy is neither able nor willing to declare a new beginning with this record. »Plays Bee Mask« is still an exciting microscopic run through the original – offering not only the defoliation of the richness and virtuosity of Bee Mask’s composition, but also a hell lot of ambient. Dozzy’s variations stand as individual and full-fledged tracks; they have their own depths, complexity and are extremely well produced. With their nostalgic euphoria, they even remind us of the incredibly productive and creative ambient-climax in the mid-90s. All in all, this record makes me want to dig up my ED2000-tapes from 1995.
