Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

As the original Massive Attack tour DJ, Bristol's Nick Warren knows a thing or two about stringing a bunch of records together. As Reykjavik #024 shows, this is a man who weaves his cloth from the rumblings of both old and new, finding inspiration in the ponderous and more pumping ends of trance culture. Warren starts the first CD in finely chilled style. Dropping anything from slo-mo ambient to deep quilted dub (check out Boards Of Canada's weird rustic hip-hop melding into the nu-skool malevolence of Justin Simmons' "Helga Moller"), it's a head-nodder's delight. CD2 ups the dancefloor ante and brings together an alarmingly steady supply of top quality trancey prog-house cuts, battling it out for supremacy with hard to define bruisers like the rifftastic white label "Headpusher" from Dream Traveller. Truly, this man is to be trusted. --Paul Tierney

Cor blimey! Amazing mix, plain and simple! A mix of two very different halves, and a complete departure from what usually goes on with the Global Underground mixes. Out of the window goes the 'deep progressive for disc 1, tough progressive for disc 2' template that just about everyone seems to follow on mixes and in comes something special. Nick Warren was generally regarded as having created the best mix of the Back To Mine series, what he does here completely blows that mix out of the water.
Disc 1 takes you on a journey from chilled out ambience, dubby house right up to perky electronic breaks. And all perfectly seamless, the mix carries you along through the tempos without erratically jumping between styles. Listen to the way the mix blends from Ulrich Schnauss to Boards Of Canada to Yunx. Spine tingling. Also check the way it subtly ramps things up for the superb breaks journey as Planet Funk ends. Warren has some inspirational moments here, like layering Global Communications 14:31 over the breakdown of Burufunk's Outsider to completely change the mood of the track. It feels like thats how the track was always meant to be heard. And if thats not enough, thats only disc 1. Hell, I'd just fork out the money for disc 1 alone, whack the setting to 5 stars for this review, bobs your uncle. Warren is lovely enough to provide a counterbalance to his ambient/breaks journey of disc 1. The second disc sees him get to grip with some deep and trippy Progressive Trance, long melodic electronic journeys, sometimes cosmic like the opening two tracks, sometimes uplifting like the fantastic Rise by Vector and Crayons by Starkid, and sometimes plain pounding and bassy like Aquaculture - Don't Play The Game. Words cannot sum up how good Warren's vision is on this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paradise Regained? Paradise Exceeded. 31 Oct 2003
By Tom Douglas TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I dip in to and out of the GU series... mainly becase it does not sustain the high peaks it sometimes reaches- and of course it COULD not sustain them. There are always hits and misses. Although GU have definitely raised the standard for all mixes.
There are peaks that (merely?) match previous high points and then there are new peaks - mixes that snatch the breath.
And so it is with Nick Warren in Reykjavik. Not for the first time he has taken GU to a new level. Disc 1 is the killer. Nick does ambient/chill out. Nick *rewrites* ambient/chillout. Gently raising the stakes, darkening the tone, leading you astray.
This is not to take anything away from Disc 2. Its starts fresh and stays there, never really settling into sedate middle-age.
Its a killer double CD. Disc 1 sucks you in and gets you hooked. Disc 2 feeds your addiction in a wholly irresponsible way!
We already knew that Nick Warren could cut it. With Reykjavik he adds even more to a great reputation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brave and vindicated. 12 Mar 2006
By Mitya
Format:Audio CD
It's a view held by many that Nick Warren 'is' GU. And it's not a wholly unfounded view, either, given the Boxed boys have called him more than anyone else to get on the decks. His offerings have been consistently superb, GU24 (intended originally as NW's last GU, a decision divinely reversed later for Shanghai) bears little resemblence to his former offerings, nor those of any other DJ. Which was rather brave at the conception stage.

Warren here goes back to his Massive Attack DJ roots since this album is far more about unhurried depth of sound and trip-hop than it is house. The inclination to fill dance floors is only occasionally visited, and is instead flanked by a more constant presence way down at the bottom of the BPM scale. It's a lesson in track selection and mixing, and its structure is one of human-like mood changes that one could easily experience when immersed in such music or a related club night.

So it's all the more confusing that all the tracks seem natural in their progression, given that the structure is mood-like not directional. There are precious few mix albums like this where you can see each track belongs - forget fillers. So it would do injustice to those I don't mention if I were to pick out highlights (although the fact that there's a Planet Funk song should accelerate your dive to the 'buy now' button). The songs fit, the mixing is, well, Nick Warren, and it shows that the slowing and broadening of prog house only makes it more deserving of its 'intelligent' tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent GU vinyl pack 2 Aug 2005
Format:Vinyl
Quality package, with the tracks on the first two discs being downtempo breaks and ambience inluding the haunting Tom Middleton produced 10+ minute wonder 14:31.
The final disc goes deep and lush progressive via Aural Imbalance (being an exclusive to this vinyl as at the time not released fully), and the solid chugging Don't Play The Game via Aquaculture.
