5.0 out of 5 stars Melodramatic disco house that never lets up 29 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Following on from their first mixed album, 'Shakedown 2' once again showcases the Freemason's uncanny ability to cut to the very heart of a track and blow it up into a disco house stormer. Whereas many other remixers 'flatten' a track, reducing it to its bassline and cutting up the vocal, Freemasons actually increase the melody, boost the vocals and often find new hooks of their own. Many tracks have an injection of urgency, with stabbing strings and spacey sound effects ramping up the tension. Old favourites like Ultra Nate's 'Free' and Eurythmics 'Here Comes the Rain Again" are given a new lease of life, their tunes still very much in place but given surging new basslines. Kelly Rowland's 'Work' is not so much remixed as totally remade, with Shakira-like brass stabs & pounding beats that suddenly give way to the 'Knight Rider-esque' original Freemasons edited remix that gave Kelly a huge UK chart hit. I wondered if they'd pushed things too far by remixing Marvin Gaye's 'Heard It Through the Grapevine' but it's an amazing transformation - maintaining the integrity of the original vocal but creating a fantastic new synth hook, pulsating bassline and 70s disco feel. Must also mention the inclusion of two of the greatest pop records of the last few years - the criminally overlooked 'The One' by Kylie and the fantastic 'Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer' featuring Sophie Ellis Bextor. It's a mixed album but please don't let that put you off - tracks segue seamlessly and the majority of each song is played. The Freemasons are at the top of their game and continue to enthrall with their melodramatic and exciting disco house remixes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance till you drop! 30 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
The geniuses are back with another barrage of superbad dance tracks. Have you ever heard about the Midas touch? The Freemasons have it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good! 22 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was a big fan of the first Shakedown compilation so I looked forward to this release.

I think overall its better than the first album but the omission of the remix of Beyoncé's "Beautiful Liar" is a massive disapointment for me.

I hope its included on perhaps Shakedown 3?

Cheers,

Ben.

4.0 out of 5 stars Banging!!!!! 13 Oct 2009
Format:MP3 Download
Typical relentless Freemasons. Nice that they didn't muck about too much with the already perfect "Work" by Kelly Rowland. Great versions of Solange, Kylie, Eurythmics, I could go on. Guaranteed to put you in a good mood.
