5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping the GU series alive: Part 2, 13 Jun 2003
This review is from: Global Underground 25: Deep Dish in Toronto (Audio CD)
For their all important 25th release GU have opted once more to go trans-Atlantic, wisely leaving household names Warren, Seaman, Sasha, Digweed and Emerson on the bench and passing the batton to Washington based giants Deep Dish. This is what the series needs in my opinion as the finest releases to date have both been from the US in the form of Tenaglia's Athens mix and Deep Dish' Moscow release, both of which showcased a refreshing move away from the trad progressive sound ploughed by the aforementioned names. Whilst the likes of Sasha and Digweed are undoubtedly superb DJ's, a series like GU needs variety in order to keep it vital and relevant.
For the hotly awaited follow up to their Moscow release, Deep Dish have certainly surpassed themselves with their Toronto set. Maintaining the tradition set by Dave Seaman with his Melbourne mix, this offering showcases plenty of local producers, once again giving their public the opportunity to hear plenty of tracks other than those doing the rounds in every big A list DJ's box. Of particular note are the tracks by Sultan and the Greek, both Toronto based producers whose tracks, 'Nitevisions', 'Rezin', and remix of Valentino's 'Flying', define the sound of CD1 as a tight, muscular yet compulsively melodic affair. Also worth mentioning is 'Sacred Dance' by Electric Mood, another gem amongst gems. CD2 has a tough act to follow, and whilst typically lapsing into a more upbeat, proggy flavour in accordance with the tradition set by the GU series, it pulls this off successfully offering up such standout tracks as GPals Seaside mix of Paul Rogers' 'Krafty', Miro's 'The one I run to', and of course probably the biggest track on the CD, the huge 'Nothing' by Holden and Thompson, although tellingly Deep Dish opt for the more obscure 93 returning mix which sums up their approach to this mix, confounding expectations yet delivering the goods on their terms. A strong addition to the series at a time when it needed it.
