Dance music compilations are hit and miss. Why? This is because combining a large pile of music whilst being creative and with the efforts of becoming diverse, it all boils down to personal preference. This brings us to wonder whether or not a compilation is effective at altering the musical tastes of individuals. What is about to be presented is a compilation that is set to be a hit as of June. Disco giant Loiue Vega Returns with Mad Styles and Crazy Vision 2.  This time Vega pulls out some absolute corkers from the box and mixes tracks from the likes of Basement Jaxx, Dennis Ferrer, Todd Terry and Yoko Ono. As a disco veteran, there is more attention to quality by gathering a large selection of rhythms, basslines and vocals. This creates more variety, just like disco did.

Louie Vega even took in to account the styles of DJ legend Larry Levan when visiting NYC night club Paradise Garage in 1980. “I just stood there in awe watching Larry Levan work the sound system and play tracks I’ve never heard so powerful.” Even Larry Levan’s DJ techniques had influenced Louie’s become a pioneer of the disco and funky house movement. His style of smooth blending and tightly mixed tunes are prominent to music geeks.  To conclude, a hit compilation includes a mixture of inspiration, passion, great mixing and the atmosphere it creates to the people listening.

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
