Triple Disc 1999 Anthem Fest
Whereas other compilations in Pete Tong's Essential Selections series of DJ mixes have featured one or two big-name jocks, Essential Millenium features three--Tong himself, Fatboy Slim and Paul Oakenfold. With arguably the three biggest DJs of 1999 on board, it really should be something special--and most of it is. All three DJs stick largely to their own musical style, leading to three vastly different discs. Oakenfold steals the show with a breathtaking mix of melodic, uplifting trance that's tough, tuneful, euphoric and nigh on brilliant. Fatboy Slim spins a tight set of party favourites, effortlessly moving between big beat, hard acid house and funky hip hop; though it doesn't come close to matching the brilliance of his own On The Floor At The Big Beat Boutique mix album, it's still quite good. Pete Tong proves to be the loser of the lot, completing the set with the weakest--yet most commercially accessible--mix, chopping together disco house anthems (Phats and Small,Basement Jaxx, Stardust, Armand Van Helden) and Ibiza favourites (Bob Marley vs Funkstar Deluxe, Paul Johnston). Tong's cheesy house-set aside, this collection is as essential as the title implies. --Matt Anniss

Fatboy Slims cd is great, i'm not a bigbeat fan but its hard not to like this cd. It fits nicely with what you hear him play live (if you've had the pleasure). Funky beats, acid house and something for the bigbeat fans. Or just fans of electronic music like myself. My only problem with this cd is that i feel he has tried to cram a bit too much onto one cd, i would have prefered fewer, longer tracks rather that the 'radio edit' tracks he has opted for.
Oakies disk is what you might expect for a 1999 set of his. Think Travelling with an element of his essential mix in Ibiza. You have probably heard the majority of the tracks he plays here on numerous other cd mixes he has done, this however doesnt stop it from being a great 'uplifting trance' mix. He will please fans who liked cd's such as travelling, 2 years of Oakenfold at Cream and much of his EM's...just a pitty he hasnt tried anything new as in GU Oslo, thats the Oakie I miss
CD1 - Pete Tong. I feel that the other contributors have been a little harsh. Yes it's a bit chart friendly and predicable but there are some fine tunes in here, notably Tears by the late, great Frankie Knuckles and Welcome to the Magic Sessions. It is certainly the weaker of the CDs but certainly not giving the whole compilation a 1 star review for.
CD 2 - Fatboy Slim. Now we're talking - a rollercoaster ride of big beat, house and that unmistakable FBS sound. The blends are imaginative and skilled, the song choices perfect. If anyone was lucky enough to catch the Fatboy Slim vs Armand Van Helden show on Radio 1 back in 1999, a lot of the tracks feature on this CD too. One of the best CDs I've ever owned and worth the price alone.
CD 3 - Paul Oakenfold. This to me was a slightly more disappointing affair. Nothing wrong with the tracks and mixing of course, it just didn't have any high points or surprises, just a standard trance mix that could have been done by anyone. Velvet Girl "Summertime", Lost Tribe "Gamesmaster" and Underworld "Jumbo" being the standout tracks on here, but I found myself skipping a few.
Considering you can pick this up for peanuts these days, I highly recommend it as there will be something for everyone.
FBS' mix was the best IMO. A varied sound with great mixing. I love the mix from "Carnival" to "Jack it Up" and into Chems' "Private Psychedelic". makes me melt.
this is also the first Oakie I've ever heard, and I like it. Makes me want to try more. Only track I couldn't stand was the Bullet in the Gun track. Ack!
Overall, it's good, but you can pretty much throw Tong's mix away.
From the saw ettched start through to the sublime finalle it brings up a classic mix which even ten years later, almost, I can still recall from memory. Having brought scanty sandwich, at the time thought to be a sudor(sorry can't spell) for cook himself, through to underworld born slippy before effortsly blending into groove armada at the river has to be one of my favorite mixs of all time.
Overall the two discs are ok but for the best mix in my mind head for the Fatboy disc and enjoy.

Not being a big-beat fan, I don't rate Norman's mix as highly as everyone else has. A bizzare intro leading into Necessary Evil, which is almost as annoying as Doom's Night (it's... Read morePublished on 9 April 2001
