Racing through neon with your lights off

DJ music, or however you want to describe it, is pretty trendy by nature. But don't hesitate when you see this collection is already a few years old, because it holds up, plain and simple.

John Digweed doesn't 'make' the music here. He's a DJ, and he's creating a soundscape, or a journey, or whatever you prefer to call it. So you listen to this collection, and you ask if it still 'works'.

I definitely think so. This is deep, dark trance. No cheese, and very few vocals. It's relentless, too. It stays with a steady, dark groove and becomes seamless. If you bought Los Angeles, this is just as good if not better, and a logical companion (predecessor, actually).

Disc one gets right into it with a remix of Underworld's Cups, and it's one of the best driving tracks ever, with one of the few vocals, though it's pretty upbeat and very slick. Then it starts moving to the middle, steadily, which settles into a very dark, futuristic, and intense ride--Gravi Tech, Tribe & Trance, Here I Am--they sum it up. No cheese, no snare rolls, no crazy buildup, just relentless.

Disc 2 sounds even darker, even more down in it than the first. Everyone always picks their highlights, and the astute reviews note where certain producers and tunes show up, but I think this hits the high note during Sputnik, right about at the 'New York FM' calling.

Global Underground has put out some fantastic sets over the years. This one definitely holds up; I don't think you can fail breaking this one out regularly, no matter how many years later. Highly recommended.

Clay Aiken Amazing

If you haven't picked up this single you gotta be either poor or under some rock! It's a great cd with an amazing man to sing beautiful songs! If you do buy it I doubt you'll regret it! So go to your local wal-mart cause your really missing out!

Disenchanted Pumpkins Fan

This is an album that the pumpkins come out from behind thier hard rock shadow and give a performance of some of the most beautiful, touching and inspiring music yet recorded. ADORE is a smashing pumpkins album, if you miss the rock feel, then you are not a pumpkins fan, you are a grunge fan, and this album is not for all the grunge heads out there. If you buy this album,listen to it without a closed mind and with very very open ears.
