  1. The tracklist has already appeared. Wellfare (Gigi & Pandolfi Long Version) Wellfare (Gigi & Luca Noise) Wellfare (I Wanna Tanz)
  2. The tracklist has already appeared. Summer Of Energy (Gigi D Agostino Viaggio Mix) Summer Of Energy (Solsticio Largo)
  3. I’ve just noticed that the track Sweetly was removed from the majority of Amazon platforms (checked DE, ES, FR, IT, US sites), only the remaining two tracks (Happily and This Song Tears Easily) may be found when searching for it there. However, the whole single is still available on the UK site. Could it be that some buyers complained about the quality and that forced them to withdraw the track from sale? Who knows.
  4. Well, Giallone Remix is one of those with the least gain applied, on the other hand Panic Mouse and Creative Nature vol. 1 are more than twice as loud, but you’re right on average the entire CD is only two thirds up in gain. 1. NOISE MAKER THEME [+2.12 dB ~ 128 %] 2. THE MIND'S JOURNEY [+4.07 dB ~ 160 %] 3. PANIC MOUSE [+7.49 dB ~ 237 %] 4. GIALLONE REMIX [+3.87 dB ~ 156 %] 5. MERAVILLIA [+7.09 dB ~ 226 %] 6. CREATIVE NATURE VOL.1 [+3.04 dB ~ 142 %] 7. PANIC MOUSE (Stress Mix) [+8.16 dB ~ 256 %] 8. CREATIVE NATURE VOL. 1 (Adam & Eve) [+6.81 dB ~ 219 %] 9. THE MIND'S JOURNEY (Brain Mix) [+4.03 dB ~ 159 %] – AVERAGE VOLUME INCREASE – [+4.45 dB ~ 167 %] You can notice it especially in the lower volume parts of the songs, there is less noise and crackles (though not completely removed), but generally the hi-hat sounds suffer from that also in loud parts. Also for example in Giallone Remix, they removed the low frequency noise in the bell intro (0:00 to 0:22) but didn’t do the same in another similar sounding part (1:33 to 1:38).
  5. I haven’t known till now that the reissue of A Journey into Space from 2014 was remastered, some pop/click and noise reductions had been applied on the four tracks coming from Creative Nature vol. 2, which actually make the songs sound worse in direct comparison. However, the channels are now more balanced, the 1996 release had left channel noticeably louder on these vinyl recordings. (That I find kind of interesting, as all these tracks except for Gigi’s version of Panic Mouse have the left and right channels swapped, while on The Greatest Hits the tracks Panic Mouse and Meravillia with swapped L/R channels play louder on the right channel and Giallone Remix on the left one as would be expected provided the same recording setup had been used for this single.) And last but not least the entire CD is approximately twice as loud. I’m not sure, but I guess the same may apply for the first album Gigi D'Agostino also reissued in 2014.
  6. Here are some corrections and additional information. Laboratorio 2: S 00003528 (Zabuyaque) Distributed By Global Net Laboratorio 3: S 00000066 (Zabuyaque) - wrong tracklist Btw, does anybody know if all the copies with the wrong tracklist had the “dosaggio corretto” sticker over the sealed case? The Greatest Hits (Reissue): G8 0004221876 (Zabuyaque) [Super Jewel Box] Until now I haven’t known there is also a jewel case version. Underconstruction 2 - Silence Remix (NM 1041702): S 00023618 (Zabuyaque) It’s the Noisemaker Benelux version, not the Italian one. Cappella - Hyper Mixes: S 00002667 (Zabuyaque) [blau] Angels' Symphony: S 00007895 (Zabuyaque) [correct tracklist – barcode 8 019256 001152] There are two versions of the Italian BXR release. Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby 2001 (EastWest Records GmbH, Germany): S 00039413 (Zabuyaque) It’s the EastWest pressing, not the Noise Maker. Luca Noise - Moonlight Shadow: S 00000514 (Zabuyaque) [light grey] S 00001928 (Zabuyaque) [white label] And also a new addition Gin Lemon EP (normal - black vinyl): S 00005136 (Zabuyaque) My previous copy was one disc only (with a promotional sheet and a photo inserted), this one contains all the three records, though a promo sticker is applied on the label of the 3rd disc, maybe the black records were intended as a promotional stuff but why they have higher serial numbers on the SIAE sticker? It makes sense that a promo release precedes retail ones.
  7. When I look at the picture on Amazon, I would say the bracket is there. However, it’s still not a photo of the real release which may differ in the end. (We don’t even know if the physical release doesn’t get cancelled.) Have you already pre-ordered your copy? (In case it ends up like Hollywood.)
  8. Well, that would make sense. Actually, when I first saw that 1991-2021, I expected a huge pack of tracks, and then only six showed up. It will be great to see following releases after this if it doesn’t end up as one-off project.
  9. It’s just missing 52 seconds to fit the Creative Nature. But seriously, it’s a really good track. However, since the title says 1991-2021, it seems the oldest track is “Luci ed ombre” then, as “Animo lunatico” is from ‘93, though it doesn’t sound that old to me, the other tracks contain vocals and sound like modern lento stuff.
  10. You can still paint one of your walls in black to get an optimal contrast.
  11. A friend of mine who bought it from Amazon received it in a proper packaging, got it from the second batch after it had been sold out for a while (also his number was quite high like your second one). I guess people complained when they received their first copies, some might have even returned it, I wouldn't wonder, so they changed the packaging. I somehow got used to bent covers, writings on center labels and artwork after years, though I still can't stand it on CD's, these have to be perfect.
  12. My copy has the number 0207. Have you bought the second copy because of the condition of the cover as it arrived to you?
  13. The picture of the back cover has been added on Amazon and in the end there are three versions and it is limited to 1000 copies. EDIT: As I wrote about the Instrumental Mix being on vinyl exclusively in the post above, that may be the reason they have withdrawn the digital release with the Extended Mix from sale, as they decided that they want it together with the Instrumental Mix just on vinyl, who knows.

  14. And I hope it’s gonna be vinyl exclusive and the pressing will sound as crackly as possible and with lots of surface noise. EDIT: I’m joking, of course. Though I personally think that the instrumental will be just on vinyl, but who knows. We’ll see.
  15. http://www.jackals-forge.com/bodystory.html for blood cells in capillaries (which can be 1 cell thick in diameter) but replacing the particles with the real original blood cell geometry. Jonathan Stroud once again came up with the goods, writing a solution which would have been impossible in terms of rendering and dynamic computation using any off-the-shelf software. He devised a setup which took a model of branching capillaries, automatically created a central curve for each "tube" to form a network of branching paths. Particles were then fed down the paths in single file but with
  16. Bought. Have you noticed on the IBS site, that intro111 has posted above, there is also the tracklist, allegedly an instrumental mix is supposed to be there besides the extended version.

White Coloured Vinyl) Artisti: Gigi D'Agostino, La Vision Supporto: Vinile LP Numero supporti: 1 Etichetta: Time Data di pubblicazione: 31 luglio 2020 Compilation EAN: 8051361273406 1 LA Vision & Gigi D’Agostino “Hollywood”(Extended Mix) 2 LA Vision & Gigi D’Agostino “Hollywood”(Instrumental Mix)
  17. Shlould it not meet a certain number of sales before they offer a CD-R version of an mp3 release? I feel that I read something like that somewhere years ago, which would make sense since not all mp3’s are offered as CD-R’s, it’s actually a small fraction of those.
  18. You’re right, I haven’t noticed this difference before, I just knew about the low-pass filter (0:51-1:13) and the instrumental part from Pensando ballando mix (1:44-2:26) both that became the part of the new Ribadisco mix, so it’s like the two mixes spliced together in the end, the beginning of Ribadisco mix and then followed by Pensando esplicando mix.
  19. Well, Benessere1 is a DJ mix, there it is understandable, as it was likely played on CDJ players then going to mixer and then recorded (likely exchanged L/R cables), actually I’ve just listened to that and the whole mix seems to be affected, I’ve compared these songs “Paura e nobilta’“ pensando esplicando mix, “Tangology”, “Sostanza noetica”, “The rain”, “Summer of energy” and “On eagle’s wings” which appear also on other releases. Btw. Paura e nobiltà is actually ribadisco mix there, probably Gigi decided to change the mix name when he released LTII do differentiate it from UC2 version which is similar, yet different a bit. Just realized that Sostanza noetica is a much longer version there than Gigi D'Agostino & Luca Noise Mix on the EP.
  20. It’s not much about quality as such, but has anyone ever noticed that ZYX Music releases have the left and right channels swapped in a number of examples? I’ve known about Bla Bla Bla for quite a long time … Today I also noticed that the channels are swapped in Radio edit and Extended mix on New Year’s Day single. Guitar, Purezza and and the last track New Year’s Day (5:40) are OK, though. It also concerns the digital Media Records release (which is actually released by ZYX Music), French and Australian CD’s are entirely OK. Concerning Bla Bla Bla, on the CD (ZYX 9030-8) all three songs have the L/R channels swapped including Voyage (africanismo mix), however, on the CD (GDC 2144-8) the very same Radio cut is already OK, but Abbentenza mix is still affected. I find it quite interesting how such a thing may happen in digital domain (unlike analogue transfers, such as tape or vinyl) unless it was done on purpose, and if so, why?
  21. Is it a completely different mix which we don’t know or just a different cut of an already released mix on the singles?
  22. And that’s why ZYX received 192 kbps mp3 masters for 2003/2004 CD’s (UC1, UC2, Gigi’s Goodnight, Cuore matto, Soleado …) You know, for Germans it’s more than good enough. (Though it’s weird, the German vinyl Cuore matto seems to be made of lossless files unlike the CD.)
  23. Bought all the three copies, going to resell them and make some money.
