Fouking good!

Knew about this mix for two years now, however I increasingly enjoy it. Initially it may not be much - after the first few tries it might seem too raw and simple (even uninteresting) to have a high relistenability value but it does captivate you to return and rewards it as well. Few manage to get better with every listen from around 2001.

It's techno-ish dark and banging strobelight-progressive - the former more applicable to the first, the latter to the second 'part'. The intentionally reverted, eased down transition from Derangement Of The Senses (a monster of a track) into Do You Hear It? signals that change in style and mood.
Excellent opener and even if you don't look at the tracklist prior, you can recognise the unmistakable sounds of Maurice & Noble (who provide a superb remix of Fouk that IMO fits here a lot more than it does on Seaman's GU022: Melbourne) as they set the mood as the two equally fitting closing tracks, making you feel satisfied with the length as well as with the quality of the CD which lasts exactly as long as it should; not a minute more, not a minute less.
The selection throughout isn't lacking perfection though and provides a terrific flow; always keeps you engaged, never bores, and apart from track 8 (the aforementioned Do You Hear It?) which alone sounds a lot more dated than the rest, the release as a whole aged very well.

Obviously it's not chinstroky prog house (neither it wants to be), isn't strong on melodies and is rhythm-oriented (stripped down even at that) but god it's satisfying and fun to listen to, making you liptighteningly-frowningly exclaim several "foukyeahs!" either inside or out loud and just generally having you left feeling awesome in a non-hysterically cool way.

In short: a top-notch mix, really the CREAM of the crops, certainly from the era it now represents.
God I love this CD. It starts off really dark with a nice hard thumping beat that stays throughout the CD. As track 1 finishes, it gets darker and deeper (really deep) until about track 6 or 7. From here on out, the deepness of the CD lets up and brings you into a world of really nice landscapes. The last song is the perfect let go for this CD and really brings a smile to your face. This is a journey I recommend to anyone who is willing to take it.
