3.0 out of 5 stars A nice enough mix to pass the time, 20 Feb 2005
This review is from: Cafe Mambo - Eivissa (Audio CD)
To be honest, I wouldn't have bought this mix. I tend to shy away from ANYTHING that is packaged towards 'summer chilling' or 'Ibiza Summary 200X'. Its like the Hed Kandi collections, I like a few of the tracks, everything else just floats above my head in a mish mash of blandness.
Anyway my girlie plucked this out for her collection and I have to say, there are some nice little moments in it. For one, the opening CD is a journey through some nice downtempo noodlings before heading into some good deep house. The Charles Webster remix of Decourage is something I had to instantly track down on vinyl, its fantastic and FAR from being a 'duff track'. Electronic latin house with an insistant drum track. Strangely chilled yet moving. I'd expect to hear it in a Danny Tenaglia set.
The second CD provides a snapshot of the slightly more progressive end of dance tracks of the time. Roger Sanchez's opening remix of Afterlife is a wonderfully deep atmopsheric tribal number. Peace Division has their excellent groovy tech houser Beats And Peacez 3 included plus you get my favourite track from GusGus's Attention album (Call Of The Wild) here in remix form.
By no means a groundbreaking DJ mix, but its solid with enough high points to make it worthy. Its also been fully 'girlfriend' tested so you can ensure its a safer buy for your other half rather than trying to get her into 'Essential Click House Anthems 2005'. Plus anything is better than feeding the horridly bland mix series that you get out there nowadays. Will it stand the tests of time? Probably not, definately tracks of the moment that should stay in that moment, but as I say its nice enough for the casual dance observer.
