Crasher Wet captures some amazing character, just as Red did with its party, spiritual sounds. Except this this time round, the album does indeed have a Wet character. The clever use of 'ripple' style sounds in the rhythms really adds that summery, fresh feeling, and its totally consistant. Its one of those albums you would take with you if you were stranded on a desert island. Its hard to put it into words how this water effect is put into the mixing and music, you'll just have hear.
As ever, the album kicks-off with a break beat tune, or in this case 2 to set a mood. Phuture 2000 is a good song, and was simply destined to mix into Finished symphony, like toast and jam. Its one of the many moments in the album where you'll feel the hairs stand up on your kneck, because its so seamless.
The years big hit Saltwater is hear, and its even better. The mixing really brings out that unforgetable rhythm, and is perfect for the height of summer, it is without a doubt one the best summer club songs ever. The moment at which the track starts (with another almost water crashing effect) makes the hairs stand up once again, as that lovely rhtyhm graducally builds up. Syntheseasia follows the same route too, such a feel good tune - simple, yet very effective. Another of the years big hits, 9pm is here, and again remixed to sound less commercial thankfully. It does a good job too, sounding likle its being played underwater perhaps, but a nice change.
Cd2 starts with Apache, but not as we know it.Read more ›
Gatecrasher, thank you. We love and salute you.
I've been a massive fan of trance for many years. Going through many albums. Some good, some not so good and some that are simply breath taking.
This album is breath taking and then some! :)
A lot of people I know who have listened to this album or who own it, say that disc 1 is their favourite. But for me, disc 2 is the best mix ever put together (at least.... from all the mixes i'm aware of). It's so old school and you never want to skip a track. It maintains a steady stream of energy right from the start, all the way through to the end.
Uplifting/progressive trance at its very finest.
If you're new to the trance genre, get this album now! If you've been a fan as long as I have and you've never heard or owned this album, then hang your head in shame! :P
