There's nothing really exciting about Dave Seaman at this point in his career, but he consistently churns out good sets and good mixes, which is probably the reason Global Underground turned to him to make yet another installment in the series. His last efforts for the label were predictably reliable and enjoyable, and he continues the trend here, although this is the best of the lot. Disc one especially shines through, with sleek modern beats and seamless mixing, sticking mainly to tech house but veering towards the melodic rather than the minimal tracks. 'Triangle & Strings' that closes the first set is especially memorable, and the three mash ups on the disc work really well also.

Disc two starts off lush with the incredible Sasha remix of 'Come Home' and 'Sycamore Feeling', although I wish they'd kept the vocals on the latter. The beats are slightly more pulsating for this set, and it comes to a memorable close courtesy of two excellent tracks by Carl Craig, which has an awesome Bjork-esque vocal mixed in, and Steve Ward, who closes the set perfectly.

I'd have given this disc five stars had it shown a little more ambition and originality, but if you're expecting that from a Seaman set you'll be disappointed anyway. What you get is a cool, compelling two hours of quality modern dance music, and you can't ask for much more than that.

For recent comparisons sake, I'd say it's better than Carl Cox's GU set, on a par with 'Structures' by Digweed but behind James Zabiela's 'Life' mix for Renaissance, which remains the best dance album of the year.

CD1 is very different to what I expected. Seaman has found a new lease of life in my opinion. This CD is exhilerating. Seaman can be a bit samey over time. But this CD has kicked his sound in the pants and come up trumphs. I think I hear some influence from Agoria creeping into this set. But Seaman does not copy; he takes the influence and sets his own standard.

I mentioned in my review of Agorias "Balance 016" that Agoria is at the Avant Garde of the Dance Music scene. Well, with CD1 of this compilation Seaman has thrown himself into pole position too. It is a seminal piece of work. Meaning I think it will go on to influence the future sound of Dance.

The melodies are inventive, the track selection is inspired and the pace is very sure of itself. A great CD.

CD2 is more stereotypical of the Seaman usual sound and of underground House in general. Its a drawling prog house/trance mix which is quite energetic and confident, but it lacks that inspired touch which CD1 has.

The underground dance sound has become a bit of a cliche itself over the last few years. And here Dave does not manage to break free from it. He is one of the DJs who defined that sound in the first place, but fails to go beyond it here.

It is an enjoyable mix, but it starts sounding like one of the many compilations that have gone before.

Overall I would give this compilation four stars. CD1 is great and is going places. CD2 is enjoyable in a familiar and typical sort of way.

Eight years, it took eight long years to finally see the return of Dave Seaman on the dj mixes Global Underground !!!
For those whom Global Underground means nothing, it is an absolutely mythical British label that produces here with Dave Seaman, its 39th compilation since the very first made by Tony De Vit in 1998, Tony De Vit Tel Aviv.
These double dj sets were made by men such as Nick Warren, Sasha, Dave Seaman, Darren Emerson, John Digweed, Danny Tenaglia and Paul Oakenfold, all legendary British djs/producers who marked themselves the entire history of progressive music in U.K. in the 90's.

After a first redoubtable opus, "Buenos Aires 012" made in 1999 which sailed between big prog-house and trancyl beats, the British marked the history of G.U. the year after by realizing a real masterpiece in the story of the label with the very trancyl "Cap Town 016" which keeps on being nowadays one of the very best of the serie.
Then, it took three years to see again the British taking back his collaboration with G.U and realizing this time with "Melbourne 022" a double set very different from what he was used to offer us before but which was enrolling the new course of action dictated by Global Underground, namely more house/prog house than trancyl sets!
Since this third realization, I didn't believe I would see Dave Seaman coming back someday at G.U but after the return of his accomplice Nick Warren on the excellent "Lima 035", we could give us the right of dreaming about the Englishman's return.
I therefore welcomed his return with a great pleasure while wondering what he was going to lay us, musically.
