A decent entry to the live series,
This review is from: Live In Slovenia (Audio CD)
Slovenia is yet another solid mix from John Digweed, however i feel that the live series is getting a little long in the tooth. The mix is very similar to the previous entries (this time having less discs), featuring a warm up and peak time mix, both with Digweed's signature tech/prog house theme. The track selection is quite predictable and the mixing of course is superb. To be honest there is nothing wrong with this mix...but there isnt anything great about it either.
To my surprise, the crowd noise is less noticeable on this edition, but the sound quality is definitely of a lower standard when compared to studio mix cds. Which is a shame, as for me, the beauty of music is in the fine details.
Personally i'd much prefer a studio mix cd. This mix falls short when i compare it to transitions 4, for example. Is it worth the purchase? i don't know really, other djs (jimmy van m, nick warren etc.) put live sets on soundcloud almost every month, which of course are free.
To conclude, i think John needs to take things in a different direction.
