5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST MIX ALBUMS / COMPILATIONS I HAVE EVER HEARD!, 3 May 2005
This review is from: Bugged Out Presents Erol Alkan (Audio CD)
Most people will know Erol Alkan from his recent remixes of Mylo and Alter Ego, and from his residency at Bugged Out nights across the country. He is renowned for his fun, eclectic and extremely danceable sets, and this, his first full length mix album is an excellent and enjoyable snapshot of his style.
CD1 of this double disc set is the Bugged Out Mix - and is rammed full of some choice selections. It opens with the heavy intro from prog-rockers Deep Purple's Hush, but quickly collapses into Soulwax's remix of their own 'E talking' club hit, whose pace and energy set the tone for the rest of the mix. There are a lot of interesting and immediate acidy techno tunes on here, from the likes of Roman Flugel, Freaks and Sebastian - but it is the surprise mixes and choices that make this a great mix album.
The Vicarious Bliss track is especially funky and mental, and I doubt you will find The New Fast Automatic Daffodils on any other comp, especially with a Goldfrapp acapella superbly worked in to it. The star mixes on here are definitely the combinations of Etienne de Crecy with Simian and the Winx vs. Rapture re-edit which ends the disc in perfect style. Perfect for headphones and parties!
CD2 is the Bugged In Selection, and a far cry from the lame 'chillout' disc most Djs pad out their mixes with. A truly diverse selection of non-club oriented tunes, it will have you coming back again and again. Quite Psychedelic in it's approach, it's a beautiful selection of old and new, and a great contrast to the 1st CD. Favourites on here are the Campag Velocet, Spacemen 3, Wimple winch, Julie London and Gonzales tracks. You could listen to this disc anywhere with anyone, and it's full of stuff you would never know you're missing if it hadn't been compiled here. Again, there are some surprise choices, like 80's soul bods Imagination, but it doesn't throw the mix at all. All in all this is one of the best mix albums I have heard, definitely worth checking out. I would give it 4 and a half stars, but there's no option for that so I plumped with the full 5!
