Review: Hamburg house heroes Diynamic are back with Four To The Floor 08 where they serve up some tough main room tech house to get your people moving! First up is the Afro futurist journey that is "Zulu" by Brigado Crew & Crisstiano which will appeal to fans of Innervisions or Yoruba Soul. The harbour city's favourite sons Adana Twins serve up the dark journey track "Uncompromising" which will transfix crowds with its sense of dancefloor drama. Rafael Cerato & Artbat's soulful tech house journey "Uplift" had us reminiscing about the Dennis Ferrer sound of old while finally Definition's "Pretend To Fly" is certainly geared for those hands in the air moments; expect a reaction from the crowd when this one drops. Either when that roaring vintage synth arpeggio comes creeping in or the heartfelt vocals alike.
Review: The super club of all super clubs on the whole island is here with its annual compilation of hits and anthems; it's everything you'd expect! And across its 61 tracks it's not too dissimilar from one of its open end parties, so be prepared for the long haul. Tommy Vercetti's belter "Overcharge" and Mark Fanciulli's Dinosaur L sampling "8 Track" are rolling, shuffling tech house for the main room. Paul Woolford's retro flavoured "MDMA" channels the Summer Of Love for a modern generation while Joris Voorn's remix of Audion's "Dem Howl" and Josh Wink's "Denial (Eyes Closed Mix)" get the progressive house side of things covered nicely. As we said there's a lot to get through and great value with all its hands in the air melodies, big drops and white noise build ups. What more do you want! Compiled as a continuous mix by DJ Mark Brown as a bonus track.
