Title Close Your Eyes Dub Mix

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Robert Nickson feat. Elsa Hill
Comments Thumping and pulsating beat in this. The sound just goes off into the back of your head and bounces around, nice. Nice sounding subtle synths throughout and the chorus really goes to town in a nice simple way. Very much on the tech edge, but I like this sound as it's the good old grass roots stuff, which always works. Perhaps I'm getting a bit old, but I like this.

Title Dream Makers Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Kuffdam & Plant
Comments This mob have never lived up to ?Summer Dream?, they try to get that sound; but it just doesn't come through. This takes a bloody age to do something and is really tedious in getting there, I almost turned it off. Once we get there, it works for me OK. Very much a K&P track as they all have that tribal sort of feel to them, this is no different. Two stabs at the main anthem, which I like as although it doesn't really stand out; it delivers a nice clean and crisp sound.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Danjo & Styles vs. DJ Governor
Comments First up, ignore Blue Woods as it's pants. This one is really slow to get going and it has that feel about it that nothing is going to happen. Fortunately it does. Good funky chorus that is nice and long and sounds quite refreshing on the ears. If the beginning was a bit better and not so drawn out this would be a good tune. As it doesn't, it's just OK; but worth a listen.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Emphased Reality
Comments Two very good and very different mixes. The original is a really cool laid back number, that to be honest I like equally to Blue Static. This one is more of a club tune, harder beat and lots more noise going on. The chorus has real purpose to it, almost frantic as it keeps going and going. Does get the old adrenalin going and certainly those toes tapping as well. Doesn't alter too much, but the sound is so piercing that it has you just where it wants you. A great effort that almost got the stunner ranking.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Kamil Polner
Comments Hot off the back of Paleoris, this little EP appears and a nice one it is. Very atmospheric from the start, with a pacey feel; but a relaxed melody. It doesn't really have a melody as such as it's the whole tune. It just builds up to a crescendo of sound and just keeps building upon it. It works really well and all in all this has a great feel and sound to it. Fresh, energy and thumping.

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Nitrous Oxide
Comments Prepare to cum in your undies when you hear this. Absolutely stunning tune that I can't play loud enough. I want my ears to bleed when I hear this, it's that good. It's slow to get going, which is very misleading. The anthem here is hard and in your face and will make the hairs on whatever part of your body stand up. It just throws the sound at you and doesn't stop. Breathtakingly brilliant. In case you haven't guessed, this is a good tune !!

Title Catch Progressive Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Blank & Jones
Comments I'm not usually a fan of these as their tunes are a bit too cheesy, but as there was a Martin Roth mix I thought I'd give it a listen. That mix is pretty naff, but this one isn't too bad. OK, it's cheesy, but it a good way. The anthem is quite catchy and the vocals aren't that intrusive. The tune doesn't really grab me by the nuts and squeeze hard. It's quite melodic, but a bit too stop and start. One for the cheeseters out there.

Title Final Thoughts Galen Behr Remix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist C-Quence
Comments I like the artists and the remixer, which is usually a bad thing. That sort of stands up as this is quite a mediocre affair. The anthems are quite good, with a nice euphoric feel and a cool sounding piano noise. This is built upon and does work really well. It's the stuff that it's wrapped up in that's a bit dreary. Long pauses and just beats, which doesn't do the rest of the tune credit. A bit of a shame.

Title Forever Friends Original Mix

5/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Fred Baker pres. Sensation Anthem 2006
Comments This is a typical hands in the air club tune. I don't usually go for all this, but this has a wonderful happy feeling to it and the build up at the beginning is truly euphoric. Play this loud and say you don't like it. Good beat and a really great feeling to boot, plus there's two bits at the cherry. The anthems build up nicely with lots of different sounds, but keep the energetic pacey feel to the tune. This is a great anthem.

Title North Pole Original Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Nitrous Oxide
Comments This is a good tune, although the flipside ?Frozen Dreams? is the nuts. Very solid tune, fresh thinking, simple beats and noises. As an EP goes, this is brilliant although this tune is the weaker of the two. Weaker is perhaps too strong a word, as this certainly stands up on its own two feet quite nicely. The anthems are good, but they just lack that killer touch that drives the sense mad. Still a good tune nonetheless.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Six Senses pres. Xposure
Comments This is a hard pounding tune, that gets down to the business of delivering a solid beat. It's simple with a small bit of synth work on top. Doesn't do much else, but then you sort of get the feeling that it never will. The anthem is nice and long, although very samey throughout. A bit of extra sparkle here and there wouldn't have gone a miss. Good tune to warm them up to.

Title Luminescence Original Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Will B
Comments This is an OK tune, bit drab at the beginning which is always dangerous in case you don't listen right through. It doesn't get hugely better, but it's OK. Bit dreary as the beat is quite muffled and the synth is extremely repetitive, to the extent of almost being annoying. Not quite sure what it was I saw in this. It's just plain old OK

Title Moonchild Vast Vision Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Anthony Dean & Starlett
Comments This is a strange sort of tune. The wailing works in places, but does go on a bit in others. The main melodies, of which there are two, are really good and very much what you would expect not just from the artists, but the label. Nice catchy synth keeps it moving and its here that the wailing works. Bit too much nothingness in-between the melodies, but it's bearable. A good tune with 6 mixes in total to choose from, which can't be bad.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Mark Thornton
Comments A great tune form a great EP, lots of good mixes here. Two solid melodies that work the synth really well, along with a solid beat. I love the voice talking near the beginning which adds a nice touch and then it just lets rip on the senses. You won't do much worse than buying this one.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Q
Comments This is quite a simple tune, that doesn't really go out of its way to impress. The beat is solid enough, but there's no real passion. The main anthem is nothing overly special, it's OK; but nothing groundbreaking. This is what I was listening to 5 years ago, which again was OK; but times have moved on.
