Former Youngsters member Olivier Mateu aka Rodriguez Jr is the latest member of the Berlin label's roster to mix a volume of Back to Back. The French DJ's selection gives an accurate view of Mobilee's catalogue and should dispel any notion that it's all about stripped back minimalism. From the belching acid of And.Id's "Black Mamba" to the jazz-infused Relief style trackiness of Rodriguez Jr's take on Ray Okpara's "Chi This Wonder Up" through the cut-up disco of David Labeij's "AEM" and the shimmering synths of Sebo K's sublime "Scenario", Volume 7 is a proper journey through the catalogue of one of Europe's finest house labels.
The Grammy-nominated dance heavyweight behind Toolroom delivers the summer's key electro house anthems in another seamless mix. Things kick off with Mark's own "Alright" which marries tough beats to a 90s Nightcrawlers-style melody. Further along the way we get the hypnotic "Reaper" by My Digital Enemy, the progressive of "Fact" by Stefano Noferini, the haunting Balearic electro-soul of "Something Special" by Miguel Campbell. Things get more minimal and techy as we get deeper into the mix; a really cool trancey Einmusik remix of Nicole Moudaber & Smokin' Jo's "Home Sweet Home's, Nic Fanciulli's sultry remix of Radioslave & Danton Eeprom's "Grindhouse" before reaching the dizzying height's of the sublime "Captain My Captain" by Pan-Pot.
