Joey is obviously riding high in the charts with his housey pop workout, and others know him for his sublime reworking of 'that' American Beauty sample as Jakatta. So, some (including, I presume, the other reviewer of this CD at time of writing) might find this CD a confusing departure from all things banging.
However, the point in the "Trip" series is to allow DJs such as Joey (Dave, to his mum) to create a musical journey (it's all in the name!) of the tracks that have shaped them and their music over the years. As you might expect, Joey plucks a number of fantastic disco-esque numbers from the vaults and shows them off to the world. It isn't anywhere near as self-indulgent as some of the tracks that end up on Azuli's (admittedly fine) "Choice" CDs, and it's all easily enough to bring a good smile to your face.
Look at the tracklisting, and if Kool and the Gang and the B52s sound like they could be your bag, then dive straight into this deftly mixed marathon of fab tunes. It's a clever choice to stick on during the early part of your house party, or to keep everyone happy on a road trip. Nice work.
