Various - "High Contrast Presents Ali Wilson" (continuous DJ mix by Ali Wilson) - (1:15:30) 133 BPM
Review: UK producer/DJ Ali Wilson is as consistent as they come, from the early days with his own Tekelec label ('Evissa Twilight', 'Flapjack', 'Zulu') to more recent associations with Dutch empire High Contrast, which this latest compilation comes through. Fans of his infectious tribal tech trance and funky tech house are in for a real treat, featuring the likes of: Marco V & Damian William, Jochen Miller, W&W, Ben Nicky, Marcel Woods and of course plenty from Ali himself.. Over 30 massive tracks for just L8.99!!
Review: Celsius pull it out of the bag for this collaborative release, pitting four incredible upstarts against each other. Vortex Involute kicks things off with the stunning Nelver remix of "Closing Doors", a beautiful reinterpretation that plays out the harmonies in both contrast and togetherness, showing just how intricate the original was. Salaryman comes next with a VIP of "Lose your Memories", picking up soulful sounds under a blanket of cinematic soundscaping and Anth M follows it up with Oddsoul's remix of "Inner Moment", packed with jaunty beats and introspection. Finally, "Tranquility of a White Rose" rounds up the release, with Avizura showing just how beautiful, thoughtful and well-crafted drum and bass can be.
