Title The Listener 2006 Mix

3/5 : Good
Artist Paulo Der Munoz
Comments A surpsrise tune this. Doesn't start too well, felt it dragged a bit. You know when you hear a tune with a good beat and you expect, well this takes its time. Once it does kick in, the meldoy is quite uplifting and has a nice feel good factor to it. Nice work on the synths and the melody is nice and long. Sounds like it could do with some post production to give it a bit more bass, but other than that I enjoyed this.

3/5 : Good
Artist Mike Haze
Comments This is a nice melodic trancer. Got a good solid beat and a nice catchy tune throughout. I like the broken noise in the background in places, plus there's some nice piano breaks. There are two bites at the main chorus, both of which are very very similar. The artists has clearly gone for the tried and tested approarch and why not, it generally works. Perhaps a bit more on the uplifting synths in the second chorus, to really take this up a level. Otherwise, a solid tune.

3/5 : Good
Artist Nomad
Comments This is a tune with real potential. It has a really good build up, nice and melodic and then a good hard beat to keep the toes going. Nice catchy chorus with some nice synth work, which builds up an atmosphere about the tune. This tune falls short in that it is quite short and the anthems aren't long enough. Just when the tune starts to really kick off, it starts to slow down. This is most notable after the first break. With a bit of a remix, this has some real potential.

1/5 : Poor
Artist DJ Add85
Comments I struggled with this tune as it does come across a bit dreary. The beat is rather slow for my taste and the synth work is quite old fashioned and stuff I've heard a million times over the years. I'm not a huge vocal fan and the vocals in this just don't work. I don't like to run tunes down as the artist has gone to the trouble of trying to create something, but for me this just isn't it. For you, it may work; but this does have an amateur feel to it.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Civil Citizen
Comments This is a really nice and fresh track. Simple beat, but with some really cool melodic synths throughout. This is a real summer anthem and I don't use that word likely. Moves really well and has a very polished and professional feel to it. I like the synth work in particular as it does get very uplifting. Play this loud and the hairs will stand up. My only moan is that this could be a tad shorter as it is very slow to get going. Apart from that, real quality. Check out the website for lots of freebie downloads !

Title Everywhere Full Mix

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Standard Form
Comments This has a very club feel to it, the sort of tune I'd expect from the Matt Darey farm. This has a solid enough beat, but I find the beat a bit brash at times. The vocals are OK, although I would like to hear a Dub version. Starts well enough and has that soemthing that catches your ears and makes yu want to listen more. I don't like the break in the middle, it looses far too much momentum. This is OK, draws a lot from other more famous tune i.e. Energy 54. This shoudl be aimed at the more mainstream clubs as it will go down well.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Faint
Comments This guys certainly tries hard, but there is soemthing missing. I think it's because the track sounds so commercial, bedroom created and ever so cheesey. The piano works well, but the track in general is quite noisy and a bit high on the treble. Good beat and a good idea, just needs a bit more production and some care in places. It's a novel track in that it's not my usual cup of tea, but worth a mention because of teh effort involved.

3/5 : Good
Artist DJ Tommy Boy
Comments A good effort this. Good beat, nice synth work and a melodic feel. Pretty much what you want from a record, but are the portions right ? Almost. The main tune is a bit samey and needs that little soemthing to make it really grab you by the nuts and it's a tad long for what it delivers. This needs a bit more meat in places, rather than padding. That said, I've listened to this a few times and I find it rather catchy and a most plesant track.

3/5 : Good
Artist Fractal Structure
Comments Haven't heard from this guy in a while, so was pleased to pick this one up. Got quite a tech sound to this and it does sound almost a tad repetitive in places. Nice feel, very in your face as the sound has a lot of high end noises. No real melodies in this as the whole tune is one big melody. Bounds along with a nice pace and throws noises in and out at will. Got some nice broken up percussion in places and the tempo works well throughout.

3/5 : Good
Artist BRUNI
Comments This has something about it that I don't overly like, but I couldn't tell you what. It has a good solid beat and the anthems are nice and funky, it's a typical club tune. I think it's the piano that gets a bit annoying and it's quite constant and ?bitty?. The main synth is quite techno and certainly very dominant in the sound. If you like your tunes slightly harder than normal with that tech edge, then check this out.

3/5 : Good
Artist Miguel Sassot
Comments This is OK. Good crisp beat and a nice crisp synth throughout. Very clear and straight to the point. Some crazy sounds in places, but this all makes up the tune. Later on the synth becomes much more in your face, then dies down; which sounds good. The second melody has a lot of passion and is much more up tempo to the rest, plus it comes after a really quiet lull. This isn't one that you'll go mad over, but should be one that you have a good listen to.

3/5 : Good
Artist Selu Vibra
Comments This is a nice happy record, although the beginning does sound a bit on the sad side. Strange sounding synth that kicks off proceedings, bit gloomy; but this is built upon with some extra synths in the background. In turn, a nice solid beat kicks in with all the synths working well. It doesn't really scream at me this tune, it's a nice tune that is happy and well, just a nice tune. There are two cracks at the main bit, both are near on identical and it would have been nice to have a slight deviation. A solid release on the ever impressive Somatic Sense label.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist Luke Terry
Comments Taken from the Monster Tunes sampler, this is a good hard trancer. Good solid build up, very much from the old school with a real piercing synth delivering a hard club sound. This in turn resonates into a typical club tune. Very hard, but if you like your tunes fast and furious; then you'll like this. Bit samey for me and a bit too hard, but a well produced tune that had my toes tapping for a while.

4/5 niiiccceeeee
Artist Under Sun
Comments I like Airbase, so got this because of his remix. A typical tune from this guy, solid and full of passion. This has a real funky summer feel, mainly due to the cool Spanish guitar throughout. This works well and sounds even better once the beat kicks in. Very much a happy tune, but very much a serious club tune. Not all synths this one, just a good beat, a good guitar and subtle vocals in places. I like this a lot.

2/5 : Not Bad
Artist T4L
Comments Nice punchy beat this one. It's a shame it takes so bloody long to do something. You get a nice synth early on, which is promising; but it just doesn't take off as fast as you would like. Once it's going, it's a good solid number. Punchy beat and the synth add nicely to the movement of the sound. Not long enough and too slow to get going let this down, but have a listen as it may well be your cup of tea.
