3.0 out of 5 stars Space the vinyl frontier?, 12 Aug. 2006
The compilation of choice of any Ibiza travellers Azuli presents Space has become in litlle that 3 years the best seller on the island. Reasons: it has a very good DVD and the last two editions were perfectly capturing the sound of the island. This one isn't bad but it isn't great either. Disc one is insipid in my opinion, if David wanted to capture the sound of the Terrace there are much better records out that do the job. However Rodamaal and Kid Creme are belters.

Disc 2 is quite good actually and apart for a couple of stinkers, Bodyrox, Ame and Paul Woolford capture the sound of the summer.

So, nonetheless it will be big and next year everyone will buy Space 2007 again. Space the (VINYL or CD) frontier? Oh Yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock + Funk + Hip Hop = N.E.R.D., 20 Mar. 2004
This review is from: FLY OR DIE (Audio CD)
Pharell Williams and Chad Hugo's class, known in every corner of the music world as The Neptunes, the production team behind the best hip hop and pop music of the few years, is unquestionable.
Here The Neptunes are back with school mate Shay as N.E.R.D (No one Ever Really Dies) are digging out of the urban music boarders to bring us the future.
"Fly Or Die" is the bomb: Hendrix would have made it, if he was after after rap was born, or Prince, if he didn't go all crazy and turned into a slavery Symbol.
After a great album with a peculiar life ("In Search Of..." was released as a more straight forward urban LP, and then re released with real instruments in 2002), N.E.R.D. are back with "Don't Worry About It", milkshake of Kravitz and Temptations. In Fact Lenny is guest on "Maybe" with ?uestlove from The Roots.
For "Breakout" Jacko would spend ten years in jail and Timberlake (one touched by the gold ahnds of The Neptunes) would change sex. "Jump", with guests Good Charllote, as the best drum beats ever...
The beats and the groove behind this record is the exciting part. History here is re written, a bit like Motown did in the past: "Fly Or Die" is awesome, the record you would listen every day, the record you would buy to all you friends, even "hip hop haters".
Immortal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much (quality) UNKLE stuff..., 18 Mar. 2004
Well, I normally don't rate a DJ that plays too much of his own material but there is always an exception to the rule. In this case James Lavelle, who is been around the dance scene for longer than some of you would even know, choose to base a set for GU of 50% own material and 5 Meat Katie tracks.
Controversial? A little, especially if some of you can't see much further than Prog. Forget Deep Dish, here you find something different and difficult, but all the better for it.
I believe James could have played one version only of both In A State and Eye 4 An Eye but it can't be perfect.
If you liked Barcellona than get this. If you dont like breaks than dont buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars a Stunning mix from two of the world Best Jocks, 8 Mar. 2004
Let's just start saying than with any Global Underground you are satisfied when you unwrap it and put it on Play.
This one is of course no expection and actually it's one of GU best. The Iranian duo pull a thrilling mix of deep, tribal and progressive house that is never boring and dull.
Unlike Moscow here you find sexy house music and less of the coldness of the previous mix.
Highlights are the Louie Vega - Diamond Life over Meat Katie's remix of Stephane K - Numb, Maurice and Noble and... well almost everything really. Even chart filler Moony sounds great here.
So... second best GU only behind Sasha - Ibiza in my opinion.
Get it and then get the After Club special single mixes too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy Compilation, 3 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Anthems of Trance (Audio CD)
Anthems of Trance comes from Ministry of Sound sub-label and more cheesy "Inspired".This compilation is truly aweful, it does have the occasional good tune but mainly is filled with either cheesy non trance anthems (Scooter, Ian Van Dahl and DJ Sammy) or fillers (Progress pts The Boy Wunda, Angel City).
If you into Trance then look somewhere else, plus MOS released Trance Nation Anthems just before X-mas and it does have a PROPER tracklist.
File this one as stuff for Clubland kiddie fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The follow-up to Harder is Electric!, 1 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Trance Nation Electric (Audio CD)
Her comes the third Trance Nation mixed by Judge Jules.
Once again it's a kicking mix of current and upfront dancefloor detonators from The Lord Justice of Trance. including tunes from Scot Project, Riva and Gouryella to name a few. Jules also uses acapellas of house tunes, you know what it's like if you ever seen him playing live.
If you liked Harder than you gonna need this in your collection.
One for true Trance fans and not Clubland's buyers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume Freak deserves 5 stars, 27 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Volume Freak (Audio CD)
I was really looking forward to this one and I wasn't dissapointed. I first got to know Funk D'Void when Soma released the wkd Diabla (here you find The Heavenly Mix) but I wasn't moved enough to actually buy Dos. Then last year the world met Emotional Content and that was it.
The album matches the power of the singles above, All That Matters is the best track on it, a pure seductive melodic techno number.
Every single track work and what surprised me the most, Volume Freak is not just a DJ album, works well on your home environment too.
Really if you into underground or just GOOD dance music make sure to buy this. It's one of the albums of 2004 already!

4.0 out of 5 stars Chill and Dance with Sir Howells!!!, 15 Feb. 2004
This review is from: 24:7 (Audio CD)
Nice new series for the ever reliable Global Underground. Danny Howells "24/7" is a selection of rare and obscure tracks divided into Day Mix (Ambient and Electro) and Night Mix (Prog/tech House).
What I like the most in here it's the fact that Danny chose unknown records (apart for a few ones; eg DJ Shadow) and managed a timeless mix.
You won't get bored of this after one month. Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Techno Album of '03, 15 Feb. 2004
Finally it's here Dave Clarke's "Devil's Advocate", and as expected, it's ace.
It has to be said that it's likely to be more of a DJ album that a home listening one, and that's because the best tracks in here are more dancefloor tunes.
"The Wiggle" is the best in here, pure dark fuelled tech house, makes you feel like Acid House parties are back; this one is also a favourite one of mine to spin in clubs it always gets a top crowd reaction.
"Way Of Life", "What Was Her Name (with Chicks On Speed)" and "Just Ride" close follow.
There are a couple of dodgy tracks but overall it's a must have if you into Techno or Dark House.
Also notice, another top Skint release.

3.0 out of 5 stars Air Middle of the Road LP., 12 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Talkie Walkie (Audio CD)
Air were the kings of "chill-out", but after the release of "10,000hz Legend" and the arrive of Zero 7 the crown was taken away. Air never wanted to be a chill band but the public wants them to be.
Their third album is not a similar to "Moon Safari" as some people said it would be. Its more likely to be the missing link between the previous two.
Surely it is more "chill", but it's still have some "elctro" sounds here and then.
"Venus" and "Cherry Blossom Girl" could well be some of the finest Air moments yet.
Overall is a good album, mind not essential but still worth checking, but with Zero 7's "When It Falls" on its way, it will be the final smackdown, and we'll know then if Air are still the kings.
