After spending an eternity on the fringes of the Global Underground series, Danny Howells steps up for his first mix proper for the main series. I first cottoned onto Danny when I heard him spinning down at Bedrock, I had been brought up on US House from the likes of Masters At Work and was wary of anything Sasha-esque. How things changed after that visit. I was hooked after I heard him dropping some lovely tracks of the Paper Recordings label (Paul Hester's Beautiful Day for trainspotters) in a way that was deep but oh so groovy. Thats the thing I like about Danny, he appeals to my deep side, yet also has that essential groove factor that means he plays music to shake to, not to chin stroke to.
The Global Underground series has been evolving recently, to be frank it has to, the old sound of Progressive is slowly getting left behind to be replaced by something a little more experimental and fresh. Gone are the days of the murky tribal-athons of GU Moscow and Los Angeles, and to be frank, I think the series is better for it. You could hear that Deep Dish was stepping away from the sound of old with Toronto and Digweed's dark and funky Fabric mix contains more interest on one CD than both his Los Angeles CDs put together. This mix makes what was in the past seem two dimentional plodding efforts, shifting moods and styles where older mixes just plumped for the 'keep it tribal, keep it dark' philosophy. Hardcore Progressive heads may be a bit dismayed at what is found here, especially after reading some peoples reception of Danny's 24:7 mix. Confused and bemused at the prospect of a CD of chill and a CD that skipped from deep and funky house to spacey and melodic techno rather a 2 hour bongos and bass expedition perhaps?

Unlike a lot of other reviewers I really don't like CD1. The tracks tread the same ground musically and some of them are outright weak in my opinion. I suppose it's nice enough, but I struggle to want to listen to it again.

CD2 has a bit more going on, it's a bit harder and interesting. The same sort of idea, just less of the artifically smooth tracks and a bit more gristle.

I think I might be suffering from over exposure to GU prog house. Maybe prog house has just run it's logical course and has nowhere new to go.

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.

Howells has created a great 2Cd mix here, but it's not all moody like some of the previous GU albums. It's got a more housey/funky/dubby vibe that most albums before it. (GU19 Digweed is all dark, dark prog'. Emerson's last mix was a house mix of harder beats.)
Don't let that put you off though - it's easily as good as any GU album to date, and I believe this is even better than Danny's NuBreed album!
A must buy!

The GU series has highs and lows - this is one of the former, in fact one of the best mixes of the series so far, making good use of the lazy dance sound (achieved by moving certain key notes one sixteenth beat to the left in Cubase or whatever) an d taking the listener on an interesting landscaped journey.
