Product Description

Product Description

Crucial Electro 4 is a ground-breaking album as the tracks featured include Classics featured on the original Electro albums and also other monster Electro tracks that we did not include on the original Electro albums. As well as including the full length original versions, we have included Re-edits of key tracks which are exclusive ONLY on Crucial Electro 4! The tracks have been selected by CAL ALEX who came to us with the idea for the project and who also mixed 'Street Sounds Nu Electro 4' in 2012. Many of the tracks on Crucial Electro 4 have not been available for more than 2 decades and can only be bought from record stores on scratched or worn vinyl for sometimes silly money! We have got hold of many of the original master tapes and have re-mastered each track to the highest quality; an audiophiles dream. Add to this the exclusive Street Sounds re-edits and you have an album that is an essential buy for any Street Sounds and Electro fan. The double CD will include 2 discs; one with the full length original versions - unmixed PLUS Bonus edits. The second disc has been mixed by the legendary KURTIS MANTRONIK with Bonus edits. The double Vinyl LP will include the full length original versions or the exclusive Street Sounds versions. Available as Limited Edition Double 'Gold' CD and Limited Edition Double Vinyl LP ONLY 500 Limited Edition Double Album Vinyls will ever be pressed & 500 Limited Edition 'Gold' Double CDs*. *After the 500 Limited Edition 'Gold' Double CDs are Sold Out, the album will only be available as a standard 'silver CD.

About the Artist

Kurtis Mantronik, raised in Canada and in New York, is considered to be one of the greatest dance-oriented electronic musicians of all time.

Having read the other reviews I was expecting total dross but I was pleasantly surprised and I'm pleased to say "I like it!".

I already have the originals up to 15 so there's only a couple of track that I don't think I've heard before, but hey, what would you expect from a Crucial.
The disk does fit well with the rest of the Crucial series and my only disappointments are the numerous changes to the release date and the couple of changes to the shipping times.

I'm not as technically savvy on mixing prowess as some of the other reviewers, so I'm also pleased to say that I also like the mixed disk.

It's rare to see an album released of underground tracks from the 80s so when I heard about this, I knew I would be buying it. The digital remasters are of top quality - a fantastic job! The artwork is spot on too - perfect in keeping with the original series. And I like the fact that you get one CD unmixed and then an additional CD which is mixed. Even though the mixing isn't great, I would still rather this be a double CD than one CD of unmixed tracks. It is kind of 'messy' having what are referred to as Bonus Tracks after the mixed CD but again, better than only filling half the CD.

So would I recommend this? Of course, with no hesitation, because the original electro sound is here and it's remastered to sound crisp and vibrant. I support StreetSounds completely in releasing this, but it makes me thirsty for more and in particular, I'd love to see the original three Crucial Electro albums digitally remastered and released on CD in the same format.

It's worth it just for the 'Original' unmixed classics as well as the nostalgia for those that are of a certain age, so buy it.

However - the mix by the man Kurtis Mantronik - what a let down. There is an absolute clanger in there going from track 3 to 4 on CD2 that any DJ with 2 turntables and 2 slabs of vinyl would cringe at. But, with having a raft of digital 'tools' at just about anyone's disposal these days, this is unforgivable.

My theory is that the mix was not submitted like this but has had to be edited/shortened (by someone that has no clue about the art of the DJ mix) for it to fit the CD.

Some of the 'remixes' are also questionable.

More quality control by those that really know next time!
