5.0 out of 5 stars Hard House versus deep Trance 23 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Well the first cd hits us with the most amazing deep trance...starting with a very dark side to trance. The first track sets the fellow boppers leads us slowly into a deep trance with 5:55...then into cd 2 with a brilliant start and great club anthem Good shot by hands burn. Other tracks are listed on amazon and only get better. My fav track is Fiji by Atlantis and it was a version I had never heard before. Seb is most definetly THE best dj to produce such a great mix of house and trance..he played alot of this album at a club in scotland and it was the best night of my life and my two copies of the album prove that.

5.0 out of 5 stars grade A debut for the GU arena 18 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hard to fault this CD mix when you consider the tracks that are included, many of which are well known and widely used on similar mix albums. But then the skill really lies in weaving the music together into a coherent whole and making it more then the sum of its parts and Seb manages that admirably (sadly not so well on later releases, so don't expect everything in this GU series to be as good as this). A very commercially oriented prog trance offering that will have universal appeal.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 discs, 2 stories 1 April 2000
By Patrick - Published on
Format:Audio CD
"Prototype," Seb Fontaine's first installment on the Boxed label, has something for everyone. CD #1 is a driving mix of hard, funky, mostly non-melodic high-thump-factor house. Depending on your tastes, you will either be moved to get up and start shaking your duff in your bedroom to the deep tech-house beats, or you'll find it extremely repetitive and boring. I subscribe to the first view!
CD #2 is a tasteful mix of melodic Euro-style trance, guaranteed to please even mainstream tastes with tried and true anthems like Hands Burn - "Good Shot," ATB - "9PM (Till I Come)," and Atlantis - "Fiji." I say this is a tasteful mix because, even though it features several overplayed tracks like the ubiquitous "9PM (Till I Come)," it does not insult the listener's intelligence like a Best of Ibiza "mix" that romps through 25 moldy trance anthems on one CD.
All in all, this mix has unlimited party potential. For your next house party, stick both discs in your CD player - it's the next best thing to having Seb spin for you live.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Mix through dirty house to big trance 1 May 2000
By Rosemary Polk - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Prototype was the first Global Underground I bought without hearing the DJ beforehand. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the track listing was promising, and it is after all, a Global Underground. I was very impressed that it goes right up there with the best of them. Seb Fontaine moves through a hard, pumping, uptempo house to real peak disc of trance. Latin percussion, big thunderclaps, down and dirty basslines, and a rough tempo push the first disc through the likes of DJ Dan's "That Zipper Track" and Jan Driver's "Drive By". Baby Doc's "Back to Love" ease things up nicely before Durango 95's "5:55" reaches a climax and first disc fades off. "Good Shot" starts off disc 2 in disc 1 fashion with a strong house beat, but then a nice melodic bassline drops in and bigger more trancier sounds come to the front of the music and our journey has taken off. Seb moves through ATB's cheesy but wonderfully bright anthem "9PM till I come" and Tilt's "I Dream" climaxes nicely. Travel's "Bulgarian" and Atlantis's "Fiji" keep us suspended before Seb, as they would say in Spinal Tap, "turns it up to 11" with Dejure's "Sanctuary". Seb's presence on the transitions is barely noticeable and he makes the house to trance progression very smoothly. Nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music for The Soul 24 Oct 2000
By A.Cho Excello - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Seb Fontaine Prototype 01
Think of the DJ Seb Fontaine, as dance music savoir for the new millennium; but for those of you unlucky ones out there, let me give you the low down on him. Seb started out dj'ing at a young age and when on to play at soul and reggae clubs; there he used to get paid 39 pounds (about $25 dollar here) a night; spinning the same old records, night after night. Until a friend of his talked him in to going to a house club one night, and the rest is history. Seb told one magazine: "I was totally blown away". That is where he found his "niche". In a matter of months, Seb went from playing the same old crappy routines and the same old records, to testing out different tunes, missed placed mix's, studying the dance floor, and picking up his "sixth sense" for what the crowd liked and wanted to hear.... before they knew they wanted to hear it! Seb started out his new dance themed set with a number of residencies from clubs such as Wag and Fridge in London, and last year went he got a weekly night at cream in Spain. His set at Cream is where he started attracting people from around the world, people from Germany, china, and even the USA. Everyone wanted to see him perform dance floor destroying sets. Seb's reputation was growing and just rep, so will his CD's. For all you house music lovers out there, disc 1 is for you. Seb slices and dices his way into the funky-seedy style of house music, that currently the crazy of there in London. From the opening track "My Fellow Boppers", you can tell just where Seb is going take you. The music builds and grows into a furnace of hard deep house with core tracks like "Basketball Heroes" "Zipper" and "He chilled out 99". Seb is making a fiery of deep house that never lets you down. Disc 2 (my favorite.) is more like a peak time Saturday night, but with a more trance theme to it. This set blends, shiver, and melts into more commercial tracks such as ATB's "9pm(till I come), "Life Isn't Easy", and "Mission". Plus some more "E"urphoric ones that can be found in gems like "Universal Nation" and " Because of Dreams". In the end, Prototype is a small sample of what we should prepare for what to come from Seb Fontaine, because once you hear this CD, you'll be some immersed, so deep into the'll realize that the CD has stop, but you was still jamming.
DJ Dirty D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Collection 12 April 2000
By "thickman09" - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I have both Prototype I and II. On both albums I have been highly impressed. However, CD 2 on this collection is simply fantastic. Although, Seb chose a few popular tracks such as 9pm Till I Come, the cd is one of the best mixes of peaking trance that I have come across. Able to hang with the likes of any of the Global Underground Series, I highly suggest buying this one. Also, Prototype II is very similar and although I don't feel it is quite as masterful as one, I suggest picking that up too. Seb Fontaine has produced a wonderful collection and I eagerly awaite Prototype III.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmatched Talent 31 Jan 2000
By Jeff Klapperich - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If you are a global underground fan, you are already familiar with greatness, but this album goes above and beyond anything I have ever heard. The second CD is worth the money alone. It contains a versitile mix of highs and mids in a trance style, with energetic lows. The peaks in the tracks are what keeps me listening to it though. It is true unmatched talent.
