Double Your Pleasure With Vega and Morillo!
on July 23, 2002
"House Nation America" is a house double-album from Ministry of Sound featuring one disc from Louie Vega and one from Erick Morillo. Although their mixing styles are entirely different, these discs are pretty good samples of their talents and go nicely together. Vega is known for his mellowed-out, Latin-flavored house that occasionally leans towards disco. As I have mentioned in my previous reviews, Vega's house is more likely to make you chill than make you dance, but he still comes up with some pretty impressive grooves on his 70-plus minute CD.
Morillo's set, on the other hand, is the slightly better of the two discs and runs at around 69 minutes. Offering a serious blend of hard-hitting house with a touch of disco, Morillo's groove never relents from the first beat. Unlike Vega's disc, which is a bit on the mellow side, Morillo gives you beats that make you wanna dance. And, like Vega, Morillo adds a few Latin touches here and there.
If you're just starting a house collection and want to get yourself familarized with both of these DJs, House Nation America is definitely the way to go. My brother had this CD for a couple years before he recommended it to me. I'm very glad he did.
