This release barely registered when I bought it a few months ago, and seemed destined to be consigned to the shelf after a couple of mandatory listens. But having dragged it out and played it constantly over the last few days, I feel compelled to bring it to the attention of a few more people. It's a beautifully crafted mix of dreamy electronic and deep/tech house, straying into breakbeat and other styles but all the while keeping it's consistent thread and journey.

Disc one is slower and lush, with a lot of clean beats and melodies that never become predictable. The field recordings and added sound effects all add to the experience (awesome moment in the middle of disc one with the `everything slows down' sample), and there's even a sort of a winter feel to parts of it, which is rare with dance music. The second disc brings out some of the heavy hitters including Spooky and Gui Boratto, and after a chilled opening descends into probably the best mix Zabiela has ever put together.

There's no `four-to-the-floor' heavy industrial beats or euphoric breakdowns; those are better found elsewhere, as this is more subtle and trippy. For comparisons sake, it's more like the first Northern Exposure in tempo and style rather than one of the early Gatecrasher mixes. Either way, I'd recommend this to any fan of electronic music, dance or otherwise. It's easily the best thing Zabiela has put out, and probably the best Renaissance since Digweed's triple disc set way back in 1995.

Cool artwork on the packaging as well, as always, although could have done with some sleevenotes.

I know my title for this review is a quote from Big Trouble in Little China, but do not let that deter from this album review! Simply put this is a slice of electronica at its best. The electronic scene has become quite varied in recent times but finding true works of art seems harder to come by. Zabiela is a perfectionist and this example of his work only justifies his reputation further. The first disk for me is the best. There are some fantastic transitions and he has resurrected the art of creating a 'journey'. I also find this quite versatile as I can listen to it at home, in the car, on the iPod etc and find it suits all situations. Also a very rare phenomenon. Give it a try and see where it takes you....

We are all aware that the world of dance music has gone through a dramatic change in recent years. House has been fused with sounds from every corner of the globe whilst mainstream dance music has undergone an almost unrecognisable change due to many prevailing factors including advancements in technology, an almost endless supply of producers which now spans from more than four generations and of course the steady demise of vinyl. Many will argue that it is for the better, many others will disagree. Lots of dance music veterans will grumble profusely at the very thought of the three devils letters, i.e. EDM whilst all the time younger producers continue to push their sound on the unchangeable immortal sounds of the past two decades. So, where does this release take us? A two disk compilation Disk 1 is a collection of laid back beats and breaks which have been beautifully combined and is simply a mix designed to relax the mind from the world's constant uncontrollable motion. It's a very slow paced mix filled with lots of dark twists and turns, some thumping drum and bass and plenty of dramatic changes in tempo elevation, all of which build to and revolve around a beautiful and moving track, Reason or Romanza - Radiance Trigger. The mix may not jump out at you immediately but there will be a times in your life when you will need it. Disk 2 is a very complex combination of house, beats, breaks & electro all thrown together with an experimental arrangement consisting of countless dangerous curves and bends. Designed for the younger listener and fans of electro this compilation will also appeal to experienced listeners looking for something that little bit different.Read more ›

This mix is complete quality. I am a fan of Hernan Cattaneo especially his mixes for Renaissance, Sequential etc etc. But now I can happily say a fan of James Zabiela, as this mix without a doubt is up there with the best of them. I'm not suprised he won the Essential mix of the year 2010 with quality tunes like this. Do yourself a favour and put this in your collection YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED...
