i very rarely give cd's and comps five starts but i truely believe this cd deserves it...Amongst all the other comps i bought over 2013 (Warren, Cattanteo, Digweed, Guy J etc) all of which i am a massive fan this CD beats them all hands down. its not even full of records i would naturally lend my ear to or go out of my way to walk into a dancefloor if i heard them played in a club etc but the way Andrew puts all three CDs together is just incredible. Some of the mixing is a bit archaic but i found myself not caring as i listened to it more and more as i just found myself filling with excitement when the next track came in.
its hard to pin point the genre but its a sort of new wave funk filled electro melodic disco rolling beats and cosmic tune type aural festival for your head with each and every listen. You'll find yourself muttering the inane lyrics of some of the songs as you listen to it more and more (Soft Rocks - Magic Milk). I put this on at a few parties over the last few months and EVERYONE loved it.
If you are a fan of the old (and original) MOS sessions series, the Azuri Collection of Classics and the new DJ Kicks series coupled with the old Masters series from Renaissance which offers simply quality sets from excellent global DJ's then this should be in your CD collection. If you appreciate the old Bristol music movement of the 90's (Tricky etc) then this should be in your collection. If you love electronic music (the good stuff, not the high paced commercial rubbish) then this should be in your collection. in fact...after just writing all this im off to for a listen to the whole thing again!.....genuinely excited to listen to it all over again.....the last time i felt like that about a CD was then i purchase James Holdens Balance 005 or Sasha & Digweeds Northern Exposure Vol II
