Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

It's the micro-Glastonbury. The comedown Creamfields. If ever a festival symbolised the gradual ossification of the thirtysomething armchair raver, then The Big Chill is it. Custom-built for all those whose music of choice inspires nothing more than sedentary slinking, their events mirror the vibrancy of the world of eclectic, down tempo music. It's a world where Dr Rockit's faux-Parisian accordion house mingles with the smooth samba of Bebel Gilberto, where Extended Spirit's "Solid Water" and Zero 7's remix of Lambchop transforms soulful alt. country into something even more spiritually satisfying, where Coco Steel & Lovebomb and Fila Brazilia sound like they've never moved more than 50 yards from their secluded Ibizan beach-huts. No bumps, no nasty surprises, just an hour or so of luxuriant laid back funk and chill-out mixed by Big Chill big cheese Pete Lawrence. This is enough to make package holidays a thing of the past.--Calvin Bush

By A Customer on 15 Jun. 2001
Once again the Big Chill proves that amid a sea of imitations and downtempo wannabes, they supply a superior kind of chillage. 'Beach' does exactly what it says on the label: it takes you somewhere exotic that is very warm, very relaxed, and utterly entrancing.
As fans of the Enchanted Garden CD might expect, 'Beach' is genuinely eclectic - this is a genuine mix as opposed to a collection of tracks bunged together. It kicks off with a sequence of near-ambient tracks from Sileas, Dome and Leggo Beast, gently lulling you into an easy-going state of mind. These are followed by some wonderfully laid-back tunes from Baaba Maal, Coco Steel and Lovebomb, Dr Rockit's and that stunning Zero 7 remix of Lambchop - all of it beautifully atmospheric stuff. It's a lot more flip flop than trip hop - which is to say you don't need drugs to appreciate it.
Overall, this is a refreshing compilation in every sense. It's great to hear music this fresh and clean which hasn't been highly processed - there is plenty of real musicianship and instrumentation at work here. And it's similarly good to hear so many new and small label acts for a change - overall it doesn't sound like anything else out there at the moment. That's quite an achievement.

I like downbeat mixes but all The Big Chill compilations are exctly that segued compilations as opposed to mixes and generally they can be not bad and you cn pick them up cheaply but this is just so boring it neggars belief.

That's why you can get them cheap. It's like K-Tel - cheesy overdose for the clubbing generation.
