Review: PvD returned to his very best with last years 'Evolution' album, and with the more recent Remix edition. UK label partner 3Beat put full-focus on (one of the many LP highlight's) 'I Don't Deserve You' featuring Plump, with a whole host of new interpretations. The original lush piano (quite rightly) remains the linchpin to all the new cuts, as does the warming vocals of Plump. It's hard to choose from the mixes, Jerome Isma-Ae works it into his deep proggy sound, while the Italian stallion Giuseppe Ottaviani whips up a barrage of soaring melodies. Maor Levi & Bluestone also do the business in delivering power for the dance-floor. Plenty to get stuck into, successfully achieving the "tick every box" aim.
Review: The legend that is Paul Van Dyk has had a great year, with his 'Evolution' album reminding us what a great producer he is. One of the biggest tracks from that LP here gets some serious remix treatment curtsey of 3Beat. Adam Young's crossover vocals are of course the central point for all the interpretations, with man of the moment Austin Leeds coming up trumps on his proggy cut. Every box is ticked, with a banging Drum & Bass mix from Camo & Krooked, uplifting trance from Giuseppe Ottaviani, and an edgier peak time slammer from fast rising star Gary Proud.. See which one your feeling!
