Product Description

Mention Dave Seaman and thoughts of a Renaissance album are invariably never that far behind, so it's fitting their most `capped' player return to handle the honours for the 10th volume in the prestigious Masters Series. Dave once again demonstrates his impeccable mixing and programming skills, which take a broad sweep on this latest installment; from the opening salvo that features Apparat and Farimont through to heavyweights such as Underworld and Sasha, this is an album that has something for dance fans.

One of the hardest thing to do is to write a review on an album that provokes such different opinions, especially when I just loved it from the first spin. How can you not like the silky, creamy and juicy layered sounds that Dave Seaman delivers and has perfectioned over the years past?

Just listen to the smooth take-off at the start of disk one making teasing promises of all the goodies later on in the mix which are being given by the fourth track by Wally Lopez working extremely well with the next following couple of tracks, and tell me you don't feel like you are floating on fluffy little sound clouds! And when he brings in Godthab by Stel, I don't care about the bad reviews anymore. I am sold!!!

Sure He lets down a bit after a couple of sublime tracks Christian Fischer and Skylark by bringing it back to some vocal trancers, but hey, it's Dave Seaman; somehow he always had a bit of a cheesy taste for Tiesto like emo-trance. It's not offensive and thus I forgive him.

Personally I prefer the first disk out of the two. Up until the sing-along by Eelke Kleijn it is just overwhelmingly sublime. It gets a bit trancy after but it's still all good. More consistent however is disk two.

Again opening with an intro that works well into that what is coming. And what is coming is a progressive warrior holding his ground among hostile grounds of minimalism. We get some real stormers here folks. What do you think of Exuma by Sol & Grimm? And what about Azora by Josh Gabriel? He should get a medal for a production like that!!! Then until Jamie Stevens' Keep her space is brought in we get a couple of tunes that are indeed a bit Blablabla, but who cares. Nr. 11 of the disk is just mayhem and I find me loosing it visualizing dark halls with a thousand lasers going off!

To put it simply, if this CD were a mountain it would be Mount Everest. The highest peak on Earth and a place that very few people have ever been. Sit back, put on a decent set of headphones and be prepared for a mind boggling display of technical craftsmanship. After a few tracks it soon becomes clear that this mix is all about control.... every twist, every corner, every beat is controlled to a level that many DJ's can only aspire to. Seriously, if you played this mix on a plastic MP3 player with software that leaves gaps between the tracks during playback, I reckon you still wouldn't hear the changes... ( joke ). Bearing that in mind though, this mix really does showcase a wealth of sound engineering skills and if you do not listen to it on a decent set of headphones or decent sound system it will absolutely punish you. A deep, soulful, rhythmic artistic display of controlled base that is sure to please a lot of hungry dance music fans. If you do not like the sound on this compilation ( as many reviews presented ),then I am afraid it's not the mix, it's your sound system. I can't wait to listen to it again... WOW, seriously, What a ... mix!!! I don't know whether to dance or cry.

To think of Dave Seamans new Master series as just a dance compilation would be wrong. As his record label states audio therapy & that's exactly what he's new Renaissance masters is... On first listen yes I would go as far as to say that it does sound a little bit different in some areas, but I think the modern DJ today has to be different otherwise you get no wear. I felt cd two was more upbeat & full-on as to what cd one was but over all they wear both enjoyable mixes to listen to. My most rated tracks out of all the compilation would have to be Escalator-skylark couture feat, rachelle-afterglow, solomun-deadman, josh gabriel-azora, solaris, heights no trace.

My friend who is into very similar sort of music as me said that this was one of the best mix CDs he has ever heard, I would go as far as to say that it is the best mix CD I've heard. You don't even have to be into your dance music I would say to appreciate this mix. It's fantastic. It will make you dance on your own believe me! If your into your house music then this is a MUST own, if you are into any sort of dance music this is a MUST own, if you like to dance this is a MUST own. Have had it for three days now and have listened to it 2 or 3 times each day and it just gets better and better. BUY THIS CD! Thank you Dave Seaman!
