I don't normally write reviews on Amazon but after reading the top comment i felt that i needed to put the record straight. I'm a massive Deep Dish Fan and seeing as they haven't released a comp CD since Toronto, i was pretty excited when i learnt that Sharam and Dubfire were releasing seperate CD's. However, having bought both, i fell in love with Sharam CD but promptly return Dubfire to where it came!
CD1 is clearly the best with some truly memorable tracks. It's probably a tad more commercial than previous Deep Dish releases but not in a Ministry sort of way only that you probably wouldn't hear many of these tracks in a Deep House style club.
The second disc doesn't have quite so many stand out tracks but still ranks as 9.5/10 compared to many other efforts and comes closer to capturing the true sound of deep house on a comp CD.
If you would like to be able to put a dance CD on that's smooth without the need to forward any tracks (with the exception of the 1st track of CD2, what was he thinking???) and slowly bring the tempo of the music up as well as some stand out tracks that really will get your friends asking what CD you're playing, click purchase, wait a few days and enjoy.
For all those fans of Deep Dish, Sander and Lawler back in days when the played chuncky prog with twisted voices and tribal drums im afraid those days are gone.Throughout this cd you get glimpses of how deep dish use to be and sounds that would always be in there sets but mostly this set is uplifiting guitars and glimmering vocals, a true album that would be welcome at home on the couch after a club or peak time in a club. Personally i love all the old albums from these guys and this one is a classic as well, a must for any global underground lover. With Dubfire bringing out Tapei in Jan 2007 and rumours Nick Warren following up in Paris with GU and Sasha new Involver 2 things havent looked better in a long time and dance music is stonger than ever and constantly growing. GO ANB BUY IT WONT BE DISSAPOINTED!!!
It's difficult to pin down exactly what's wrong with this addition to the GU series; some quality tracks, the mixing is of course seamless, and the CD moves steadily through the genres, taking in deep house, progressive, and even some head-banging tech-house (a la 'El Ayoun'). However when compared with Dubfire's effort, this CD doesn't have quite the same zip, and one feels that Sharam is taking himself a little too seriously. Buy Dubfire instead, and you'll have almost as much fun listening to it as it sounds like he did making it!
