5.0 out of 5 stars De Vit at his best..., 28 Mar. 2001
This review is from: Global Underground 5: Tony De Vit In Tokyo (Audio CD)
Tony De Vit's untimely death shocked thousands of fans worldwide. He was a DJ who found the recognition he deserved at London's Trade club, the birthplace of the now Hard House phenomenon that exploded into the commercial charts in 2000. Captured here in time is Tony, live, in Tokyo, at the start of the Nu-life musical explosion. CD1 begins with a journey into a pounding, yet ambiant Progressive tribal-beat. This continues onwards to a more Vocal Housed element and later banging territory in CD2, and through to the recordings end. Because the set is live, the two CDs are joined, CD2 picking up where the first ended, Tony's mixing crafted and seamless, the underground tunes (including several of his own) he chooses full of passionate energy. This part of the Global Underground series excels, capturing Tony De Vits talent and style, keeping his memory alive forever. A must for any Progressive/Hard House fan, or for someone serching for a Set with musical difference. Sublimely banging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Amazing!, 13 Aug. 2008

Had enough of all the usual rubbish hard house mixes coming out these days? Fed up of the tracks on them that probably were advised by some idiot in a not hard to find record shop! Then look no further! This is live and therefore the tracks were not forced on the set list (as per all Global Underground compilations) and is the best set you are ever gonna hear from this man as you should know!
The second CD I prefer, although the first is still good, as it's just a 2 1/2 hour set on two cd's! The tracks on the second cd have everything! Bouncy, hard, vocals, awesome samples and also kinda funky in places, which is hard to find on these types of mixes, as most of the stuff these days is just industrial noises!
Anyone know of any other mixes as good or nearly as good as this, please let me know! JUST BUY THIS CD! NOW!

Listening to this CD takes me back to my younger days and my weekends at Trade London. Absolutely brilliant CD and classic Tony De Vit. Elitedigtal at Amazon market place got the order out relatively quickly taking into account that I live in the Canary Islands and the CD came from New York.

Ahem this title has the wrong cover shown....it's the tokyo mix here, one of trhe early GU editions and pretty good because of that. Tony likes stuff with a bit of punch and bite.

5.0 out of 5 stars an absolute crowd pleaser and hero of the 21st century, 19 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Live in Tokyo (Audio CD)
what can i say. the early tony de vit has done it as always. his large pushing basslines and atmospheric rythms realy make my body shiver. the continuous flow of energy throughout this cd makes u think which is what i think all music is about. Tony was a great man and dj and will have a lot of influence over many for a long time yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tony at his best, 3 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Global Underground 5: Tony De Vit In Tokyo (Audio CD)
It's hard to say this is one of his best sets as there are so many. It is one of my favourite albums which I've owned for years and without going over the top, I would describe it as an epic which he builds up until he leaves you, at the end, completely in awe and with a big grin on your face. A classic set which goes hand in hand with his "Live in Tel Aviv" album. If you like this you'll probably also feel the same about Danny Rampling's offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the defining hard dance mix of the ninties, 31 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Global Underground 5: Tony De Vit In Tokyo (Audio CD)
When I first listened to this cd my perception of hard house changed. I used to like dance acts like the prodigy and leftfield but at the time of listining they were not producing very much new material. I cherish both these acts early albums still.. dont get me wrong but when I first heard live in tokyo my ears were filled with somthing new and fresh to me. Gone were the cheesy happy hardcore vibes that early hard dance producers did, gone was the stupid vocals that plauged (and still plauge)this music and what i heard was energy personified in a masterfull mix by possibly the most influental figures dance music will ever see. From the first track( bombay) when listening you can tell its gonna by special. I dj but this album was my insperation and in the current climate of airy cheese and hard as hell (which is nice, much respect to mr glazby) this still stands out even from 1997 a must have for any body remotely intrested in hard dance
