Review: Like its' predecessors, this year's edition of Armada Deep's annual Miami WMC themed compilation is an absolute treasure trove of dancefloor treats for DJs who enjoy the more melodious, soaring and electronic end of the house spectrum. It boasts no less than 40 full-length, floor-friendly cuts, including tracks from some of the biggest names in the game. With such an epic track listing, picking highlights is tough. Our personal favourites include Dixon's atmospheric, crackling and beautiful remix of Amberoom's "Kastell", the grandiose breakdowns, swirling electronics and Balearic guitar flourishes of Tube, Berger and Alegant's "Cure", the rolling warmth of the Brett Johnson Dub of Infinity Ink's "Rushing Back", and the pitched-down throb of Moscoman's celebration remix of Three Drives on a Vinyl's vintage trance classic "Greece 2000".
Review: Armada Deep offer up their contribution to this year's ADE compilation mountain, which comes packing 20 very solid house cuts. The emphasis this time out is on uplifting peaktime fodder built with bigger rooms in mind - while Armada Deep HAVE put out some seriously deep house grooves over the years, you'll find few such here. But this collection is well worth checking out all the same, with cuts ranging from Thomas Newson's big, strutty 'The Worker' to Olav Basoski's fiesta-tastic 'Duende', and from more commercial cuts like MistaJam's 'Trust You' to Phil Fuldner's Glitterbox-friendly 'Take Me' to the unabashed 90s podium nostalgia of Kokiri's 'Adolescence'.
