Sushitech presents the first part of the Makam Reconstruction serie, with three remixes from MRSK, Delano Smith and XDB. First up, Rush Hour's MRSK provide a very tight dancefloor tech-house groove with a light disco touch from the original, Delano Smith turns "Family reunion" into a bass-heavy Chicago throbber whilst XDB take a sweet little organ synth sound from "Time Line" and add some Detroit touches....nice!
