5.0 out of 5 stars Yes please, Mr Fortier!! 4 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Deep and moody, but with a glorious tech-groove. Dark without being pant-fillingly scary. And, when it needs to, these 3 mixes contain some of the most wistful, gorgeous melodies you'll find. Fantastic stuff, excellently chosen and mixed.
Is it just me, or is the Balance series really kicking into overdrive these days? Giving Global Underground a proper run for their money. I feel Balance is what the excellent Hooj compilations (Deeper Shades, etc) would have evolved into, had that great label survived. Just a thought...

5.0 out of 5 stars techno heaven 14 Nov 2006
Is this the best tech-house mix of the last 5 years? Yes, it probably is. Lapsed prog hero Fortier has managed (for the most part) to avoid losing all the things that made prog good - which is to say, this is serious, austere, melancholic and not at all full of love. And there are very few overly obnoxious basslines too.

disc 1 is basically the "house mix" - after Global Communications lush and lovely "The Deep", we whip through some interesting, clattering techno tracks, then a bit of microhouse. The !!! track is a bit anticlimactic, but what can one do? overall very interesting.

disc 2 is what takes the cake. Wall to wall techno, pretty much - with an abiding mood of existential despondency. It throbs, it clicks, it owns. Standout tracks are Jussi-Pekka's gently paranoid "Propaganda", and Luca Rodenbusch's offerings. Just a classic stretch of dance music. And as a special bonus, you get a disc of straight-up electro, which doesn't really do it for me - but then i wasn't There, thus i Don't Understand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well tasty! Fortier heads for tech land... 26 Jun 2005
Now this I really like. If I was to sit down and create a mix CD or if I was to choose what was pumping out of the speakers when I was out clubbing ... THIS would be the sound of it all. The mix perfectly straddles the progressive, the tech and the deep house genres, not particularly favouring any one direction too heavily but presenting tunes that have the perfect blend of all. Tyrant heads are going to love this baby.
I'm quite suprised by it to be honest, the only other thing I heard from Chris Fortier was his Bedrock mix and I don't think I've EVER listened to more that about 30 mins of the 1st CD before getting a bit ... bored. This baby here has a nice bit of sparkle & slinky mixing. Absolutely top tune selection from the likes of Global Communication, current deep house fave Matthew Jonson, the always impressive PJ Davy with his exellent Sella Dor ... in fact there are THREE tasty CDs of this stuff. Its not a mix that is going to win the 'Northern Exposure' award for creating a jaw dropping display of sonic mixing landscapes, but it certainly gets you moving. The beats are tasty, the bass resonates and it really makes you want to get your groove on. In fact, I'm considering rating this mix with a solitary 1 star due to 'DJ jealousy'.
A cracking mix which ensures that I'm going to keep my eye out for Balance 008, so far James Holden and Mr Fortier have proved to be quality ambassadors for the series. Also bang on to Fortier for putting out such a stonking mix, I may have to go revisit that Bedrock mix even if it is to crystalise what my initial impressions. 3CDs ensure you get plenty of bang for your buck, could be a little too much bang for some who could wish that Fortier took a leaf out of Tom Middleton's book when it comes to making a 3CD mix. Make no mistake about this mix though, it is the daddy.
