Well it’s time for another Naked Music release. Stylish nude gracing the cover? Check. Fathoms-deep and sexy house tunes? Ditto. Skilled San Francisco DJ keeping the quality high? Yup. Just when you thought this label couldn’t top themselves in 2000 they manage to follow up Miguel ‘Migs’ graceful Nude Dimensions: PetalPusher Sessions with a set that burns even hotter.
Most of the star producers that made Volume 1 such a jewel are back: the aforementioned Miguel ‘Migs,’ AtJazz, Blue Six (who successfully follow-up their smash “Music & Wine”) and a handful of licensed others. In fact, Aviles crafts a set smoother and deeper than the first, choosing predominantly dub takes and less vocal-reliant songs. Highlights abound but maintain the mellow vibe by not trumpeting their hooks. Bougie Soliterre with “Superficial” certainly is a soft and satisfying start, while Cooly’s Hot Box “Could You Love Me?” adds a dash of energy near the end.
Whatever is causing such luxuriant sets in San Fran needs to be shipped and sent east; between this series and the Sessions releases by the OM Label, you’ll be hard-pressed to name some smoother house mixes in 2000. As for this album, turn down the lights and slip away.

Nude Dimensions Vol 2. is a follow up to the first CD mixed by Miguel Migs. This mix includes some of the best deep house tracks to have come out last year and starts off beautifully with Bougie Soliterre and Superficial. It then glides into one of Naked music's best tracks from last year, 'Pure' by Blue 6. Which is beautiful and moving at the same time. But it is after Blue 6 that the mix starts to get a bit boring and it is until Sirus's 'Big Ben' that the mix starts to pick itself up again. Especially when MJ Cole's 'Sincere' comes in and lifts the spirits of everyone. It finally ends on Lisa Shaw and 'Always' which is another of Naked Music's best tracks of last year. By it if you want to find out a bit more about Naked Music (and so you should!). But my best bets is to get Miguel Migs Nude Dimensions vol.1 to hear the true sound of Naked Music and there domination of quality house music that everyone should hear and know about.

A very seductive album. I've played this a zillion times already, and in company its always met with smiles. Track 10: Be Sincere, is probably the best known on this album and is basically the tone of the album. For those who have not yet experianced any of the Naked Music releases.. Think; layed back, chilling with friends, driving thru cityscapes and countryside, drinking good wine...It's the perfect match to all of these. Personally I favour volume 3 in this range. Slightly less chilled, and not as disco as V.1
If you not sure about this album, try Carte Blanche V.1-3 They have a similar vibe, but with a slightly hippy edge.

The boys from Naked Music have released the perfect US house compliation that compliments the original release Nude Dimensions 1. Nude Dimensions 2 mixed by San Fransico's own Aviles combines his own individual taste as a DJ with the Naked Music catolouge of recent releases incorporating Blus Six's 'Pure' and Auquanote's 'Truelove'. Aviles begins with a chilled sunshine opener by Bougie Soliterre and finishes with arguably the best Naked Music release to date, the exquisite 'Always' produced by Lovetronic with the vocals of Lisa Shaw. With this release Naked Music are quickly creating thier own niche in the conjested current US house music market and look set to dominate for the next few years. All in all a great release and I look forward to hearing some new material in the spring.

I bought Nude Dimensions 1 about two years ago, then purchased Nude Tempo shortly after. After playing them both to death (as they are both great) I thought it was time to sample another. This one has not disappointed. I absolutely love it. I played it during a work trip to Dubai, then during a recent holiday to New York. Now when I listen to it in the car it brings back the joyful memories of those wonderful places.

I'll soon buy Nude Dimensions 3.
My only concern now is that they never made any more! Why? Please do carry on. I also have the complete Soul Heaven series and they stopped doing those too.

If anyone can recommend any other series similar, then I would really love to know.

okay, so I guess my favourite out of all these Nude compilations is the Miguel Migs Nude Tempo 1 but this is most definitely worth the purchase ! Kicking off big time with the Nude classic Bougie Soliterre 'Superificial' which I have been playing to death since it appeared on last year's 'The Salinas Sessions mixed by Jon Sa Trincha' and then going into a Petalpusher mix - your ears will love you !
The even greater plus is this mix never sags and by track 10 you're hit with the C.L.A.S.S.I.C Petalpusher mix of MJ Cole's 'Sincere' ..in my opinion one of the greatest dance tunes of all time. And by the end when you're hit with Lisa Shaw's 'Always' (heard in it's original guise on the Hed Kandi Deeper compilation) here in it's 'Lovetronic Vocal' form you will be elated !
Basically, once you're played this once you will be putting on again and again and when it gets slightly too overkill for you you will be rotating it with the other Nude compilations.
