5.0 out of 5 stars A new favorite to my EDM collection... December 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an EDM CD purchase that was well worth it. No cheese, no tunes with unnecessary vocals, just sophisticated grooves. A solid purchase.

Both discs are fantastic! In my opinion, a lot of tunes have undertones that remind me of old classics that I love.

I'm a big fan of the Renaissance collections and must say, this is definitely one of my favorite Renaissance comps that will stand the test of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth, soulful, soothing, sublime April 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Disc one is sooooo smooooth and soothing, yet interesting and groovey...no big breaks....just easy listening and incredible continuity.

Disc two is a bit more disjointed. But as owner of many, if not most of the Renaissance catalog, I have to say this is one of my favorites for a light easy groove.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime... October 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This double mix is probably the best Tech-house/trippy mix i have ever heard. Both CD are deep, groovy and very sensual as all track melt perfectly together till the end...

Highly recommended!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some House Is Almost Too Mellow October 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Danny has created here an ultra-smooth blend of progressive tech house. While it is an expertly mixed line-up of some soulful tracks, the downtempo backbone of both sets occasionally feels almost too simplistic, with the sets only really hitting an attractive friction when they amp up the bpms.

Disc One starts out with two workable house-lounge numbers that have a light-hearted feel to them. Howells darkens the tone a bit with the next two tracks, both darkly ambient house tracks that are decent but almost too hazy to leave an impression. The next five tracks mark a deeply engaging block of well-timed ups and downs, the tech in the house marching to the fore without losing that delicate shadowy sensation set up by the openers. (Enjoy the peak provided by Danny's own jazzy-house creation, "Laid Out.") From here, the melodic coloring of the set gets a bit monochromatic. The remaining tracks aren't bad at all, but they bleed into each other so much that they occasionally become indistinguishable.

Disc Two is a creamier blend, but it also lacks the punch of the first set. As before, Howells sets up a lackadaisical tone with the first few tracks before ramping up the energy, with the peak again coming at the halfway mark with "Deep," probably the housiest track on either set. Once again, the tail end of the set succumbs to featurlessness (with the exception of the funky "Magica"). The songs are great backdrops, but active listeners will find themselves bored before long.

Mellow house is a hard act to get right, since too mellow means putting listeners to sleep while not mellow enough feels like the DJ doesn't know what he's trying to pull off. Howells is great with the blend, and there's nothing in either disc to sneeze at, but they fail to really rise above their own modest goals, going down so easily that you're likely to forget you just listened to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best mixes ever March 14, 2013
By Phil
Format:Audio CD
This is genuinely one of the best mixes I have ever heard. I have listened to this at least 40 times. Danny is an absolute master at blending tracks and creating a journey. For the first time he has included a huge number of his own tracks which are superb but fit the mix perfectly. As always Danny unearths a few gems including World Of A Woman (Green Men Mix), Black Magic and my favourite of the lot Flavor (The Youngsters Remix). This album is a must for every collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Legit, not good enough to purchase and own March 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some tracks in this album are phenomenal but I find it is a hit-n-miss album. I rather buy the single tracks on itunes or something. Very melodic and chill, don't get me wrong, but for someone who has a high standard for this kind of music it isn't that great. Danny's Global Underground Miami is way better, and I didn't buy that one either. I found that most of there Renaissance Mix Collections where not good enough to buy. Kind of a disapointment. Meh.
