Review: American producer Reed Kackley aka Baile is up next on Sasha's Last Night On Earth label. The original version of "Amae" is a pop-inflected, mellow and sensual listening experience for those chill-out moments led by Felicia Douglass' gorgeous vocal performance. It receives two remixes by label chief Sasha: the first "Sasha Fabric1999 mix" was used on his recent Fabric mix and indeed - like its name suggests - channels the vibe of pre-millennium tension. The "Sasha Fabric2099" mix is more typical of Christopher Coe ,on this absolutely evocative progressive house anthem engineered by one of the true masters of the style.
Review: With the magic of ABGT250 at The Gorge still fresh in their memory, Anjunadeep have some more big news for the label: Anjunadeep 09 is locked and loaded, and there's an extra fresh feel to this volume, with close to 20 new artists making their compilation debut. Plus there is the usual sprinkling of exclusive remixes, collabs and edits from themselves. After road testing many of the tracks at recent gigs, they hope you have as much fun listening to it as they had making it. Features the deep and mesmerising "I Think About You All The Time" by Tom Peters, Baile of Last Night On Earth Fame with "Bind" (sounding like classic Jimpster) and Josef K getting properly slinky and majestic on the riveting "Inward Spiral".
