Watch out John Digweed - Howells has arrived!!!
on 22 December 2000
Following on the back of his two "Nocturnal Frequencies" releases, Danny Howells surpasses himself with arguably one of the best releases to come from the Global Underground stable.
Make no mistake, this is music for mature tastes. No hint of cheese whatsoever.
CD1 is a superlative blend of funky cuts mixed to absolute perfection. Jaw-droppingly good. I was stunned by it (and I'm no easy audience, believe me!). If your collection is lacking something funky, adult and sophisticated, buy this album for this cd alone!
Hang on though, what about CD2? Well thankfully, the Howells Quality Control Machine remains switched on to deliver a progressive mix that dips it's toes in a number of sub-genres. Once again, the mixing is masterful - it may be Pro Tools at work but you can't fake talent! - and by the time Mindstream closes the cd off you are left choking for more. Pure class. Play this cd in your car and the miles will just fly by.
In conclusion, fans of Sasha and Digweed should lap this up. I've heard that some folk have had trouble with cd1 but give it a chance. This release has been one of the musical highlights of 2000 for me. Get it.
