Best known for his in-your-face breaks, and not having made a double mix CD in ten years, it's no wonder there's been so much chatter surrounding Adam Freeland's Mexico City GU. Admittedly, this is Global Underground's only significant departure, along with Lavelle, from the dependable progressive artists who have collectively cemented the record label in EDM history. Freeland defies the odds and mixes a masterfully solid release that I believe will earn him at least one more go on the GU label in the future.

CD1 swoops into full-force with a progressive breaks/house cocktail, slowly incorporating rock and electro. It is enough to turn your head into jelly - and jelly feels good. Freeland's the type of DJ who keeps people moving by firing shots at their feet. It makes for a pretty memorable experience. The progressive breaks whip, whirl, twist and jump, sometimes lending a kiss of guitar without deviating from GU's quality standards. I dare say there isn't much room to lose attention on disc one because even after repeated listens I still find myself wondering, "where's this gonna go next?" Remember that golden standard, "disc one chill / disc two energy"? Throw that silly notion out the window as Adam Freeland squelches the conventional! And who but Adam Freeland could mix together tracks from artists like Faze Action, Revl9n, Minimal Compact, Spank Rock and Evil 9 and actually have it make sense? Freeland's own "Silverlake Pills" is a notably wild track, as is "Deadly Weapons," "Sharpen the Knives" and "F**k." The very titles of the tracks chosen seem to be competent indicators of what the first mix contains. Finally, "Testarossa" bores into Evil 9's "Happy Ending," concluding this heart-pounding experience.

It's very unfortunate, really, that this double mix album is getting some of these nasty one-star reviews. I can guarantee that if this was released on a different label under a different mix series, this would not be received as poorly as it is by some reviewers. The main problem with this is that it was marketed to the wrong audience. As you can gather by reading these one-star reviews, much of the Global Underground fanbase is too high-set on expectations for typical progressive house fare that this label is usually known for. I like Nick Warren and Danny Howells as much as the next guy, but someone should change things up a bit once in a while! Hernan Cattaneo's latest Sequential release, for example, bored me to tears!

Anyways, I'm not even sure how the hell to classify the first CD, as it's an energetic frenzied mix of electro, breaks, acid, and guitars. If you're familiar with Ed Banger's catalogue, then you'll have a good idea of what Adam Freeland's going for, as SebastiAn, Justice, and DJ Mehdi all make appearances here. From the moment the CD starts, the energy hardly lets up and Freeland flies through some absolutely sick cuts. A few tracks and sequences that stand out especially are "F**k," "Floating," and "Signatune" leading up to the devastating "Sharpen the Knives." Definitely not for the faint of heart.

The second CD, although less intense, is much more varied. The first three tracks are hypnotic and fairly subdued before building up to a track by 120 Days, a band whose sound reminds me of Kasabian if they went a more psychedelic route. From there Freeland goes through some techy minimal into a downright weird track by James Holden before getting back to a more conventional rock sound with Silversun Pickups (!), which took me by surprise.

Don't expect to hear your typical GU album here. If you are hardcore into what is usually put out by the label, then this might not be for you. But if you're willing to check out something a little different, then this is the one. I was listening to disc 1 while doing some work on the computer and realized that my legs were getting quite a workout! The music just makes you move, constantly.

I haven't heard anything from Adam Freeland before this but I will definitely check out more of his stuff now. I think the negative reviews are from people who are disappointed that this album is a 180 from the norm, but if you know not to expect the norm, then get ready for a great experience! This probably should have been released under something other than the "Global Underground" series, like a NU-Breed or something, but the GU people must have wanted to get this guy some exposure, and rightfully so.

Again, different than your usual GU, but one that must be heard, just know what to expect.

cheers to GU for giving Adam Freeland this platform. he doesn't hesitate to bring it. the one star reviews seem to be people who want this labels' releases sounding similar. make no mistake: Adam Freeland will not give you a mix that sounds like Nick Warren's last couple.

What he gives you on CD1 is mostly house with a breakbeat swagger. At times it's hard to believe it's not breaks, which mostly it isn't. the precussion, synths and samples stand up and make you take notice--if you follow me. the beats are heavy (wet n wild, phantom), techy (walking machine), trippy (37 grad, deadly weapons), and...well, pretty hard to categorize because if it's not all of the above and more it's some eclectic stuff Freeland's is goodly enough to share with us. understand, this is not atmospheric house. read: this disc rocks and will refuse to become background music after a few spins.

CD 2 is another story. the first three tracks smoothly build from airy to light, into the funky vibe of Advance and the synth rock of Come Out. then we take another ride through house before Lazy Eye (!!). The only real dips are Holden's Lump (disclaimer: i traditionally don't like Holden's stuff and don't understand the hype) and Immersion, which is a trippy seque but sort of loses me coming off Lazy Eye.

now that i've had this set for a month, i put on CD2 more because it's a little closer to my regular music moods. but CD1 is the gem. it's just a little too intense for everyday, and that's not a bad thing. don't be afraid of the new music.

eclectic, trippy, rocking = goodness for the ears
