I have bought all of Danny Howells mix CD's from the Nocturnal Frequencies series right up to this, his first 'full on' mix CD for GU. His 24/7 release underlined Howells qualities but this mix takes them onto a new level.
Deep and groovy house tinged with touches of disco are the overiding elements on display here, but he blends other subtle flavours to keep you hooked throughout the mix rather than leaving you scratching your chin and searching for the skip button. There is enough here for 'Progressive Heads' to enjoy, but be prepared to hear actual melody rather than plodding tribal drums and basslines.
I have stayed loyal to the GU series despite some inconsistent efforts in recent years. Here's hoping that Howells is brought back for a repeat mix soon.
