Hi there...As you may be used to with previous GU outings, they could be accused of being dedicated by majority to prog house (which is not a put down, cos that was my first love in elctronic tunage). Thing is, they have actually been far more diverse than just one genre, if one were to spend more than 30 seconds thinking about it.
I do believe that the first original GU release way back when, created by one Tony De Vit (RIP) was a hard house affair, as was his follow up. Paul Oakenfold's legendary and mindblowingly good GU outings (don't know what went wrong with him subsequently) included all sorts of 'current' sounds of the era including intelligent D&B, and trance!! Even Diggers dropped some propper heavy trances tracks!
My point is, the Plumps can not be faulted for a) creating a fine pair of disks that are part of a NEW series in the GU portfolio b) creating brilliance that defines their genre in 2009!! GU is pretty much cutting edge, and their brilliance is in not selecting DJs dedicated to representing fad genres. EG some misc dubstep DJ that is all the rage now, and gone tomorrow. The plumps, ruled years ago when they first began playing their loopy beats the masses, and they rule just as hard now.
Like I said, don't listen to the 2 star geezer that obviously isn't terribly eclectic, educated or diverse in his electronic tastes. Listen to someone that has been collecting GU disks from the start... If a person can not identify with certain genres of music then they are not going to make terribly fair reviewers of that genre are they? And sorry to sound like I'm totally up my own ar*e but I'm not sure a guy from Dallas is going to be particularly great at being the final word on the world of electronic beats, or is there some underground renaissance going on that we don't know about? Perhaps the new GU should be made to refelct the sounds of Dallas, Texas? Maybe George Bush JR could mix it? So when the other guy says 'Not what GU is'.... This is exactly what GU is, and it's great!
Long live GU!
Oh yeh, and can you please get Sasha to do another one boxed boys????
