i first heard about this release in xlr8r, which was quite surprising since i was reading it at a studio run by vince lawrence, creator of one of the first (THE first, according to screamin' rachel) house tracks. he didn't go on to be a big name, but his track ('phantasy') is great. what makes this release so powerful, though, is that this is one of the lesser tracks on the three discs. not only that, the mix job on the first two is brilliant, carrying you from one track to the next without any break in momentum. if you like house, or you ever wanted to know what it is, this is the place to start.
