Review: Its great to see Paul Oakenfold's iconic Perfecto label back to its very best, with a constant slew of great music on both the main imprint and Fluoro. As his 'Four Seasons' album tour / compilation continues, its time for the Spring sampler, and we think this is the best yet. Magnus (JOOF Recordings) drops a pacey and uplifting psy trance inspired bomb 'The Chase', that has no let up of energy across the full 8 minutes of acidic twists and turns. On the B-side is one of the most exciting producers of recent years, Slovenias Reaky who locks horns with new talent Skaivox for a 'Collective Insanity', a trippy, techno laced affair once again carrying some forward thinking psy elements... The sound of the future?
Review: A true (and somewhat rare) success story of the, producer-ran-record-label within a large empire, is John O'Callaghans Subcultre (via Armada). Over the past few years JOC's hands on approach has kept a perfect balance between new, and established talent with just the right amount from his own studio. This March collection is prime example, featuring; Ost & Meyer, Gareth Emery, KhoMha, Super8 & Tab, plus the Jorn Van Deyhnhoven remix of 'The Real You' from Dark Matters, and the banging Heatbeat cut of Parker & Hanson - 'Afterthought'. 16 full length tracks for just L7.49!!
Review: One of just a handful of names worthy of legendary status in electronic music is original superstar DJ, Paul Oakenfold. A true pioneer for trance and the scene in general, his work rate and clear-cut passion doesn't falter even to this day. Here we have a brand new collection of tracks from his DJ Box (or should that be USB stick), on his own Perfecto label (now part of the Armada group). Highlights amongst this tasty lot include; Omnia & The Blizzard Remix of 'Phoenix From The Flames', Sean Truby & Craig Purvis 'Beyond The Horizon', and Tom Fall's remix of Temple One ft Neev Kennedy 'Love The Fear'.. Cop all 11 full length tracks for just L5.99!!
