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.

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.

Danny Howells released this 2CD mix for Renaissance back in 2008. It continues the progressive house/tech house tradition, with a very melodic feel, that the English DJ had established over the decade before.

Disc 1 is soulful, deep and atmospheric. There are almost no vocal tracks. Things open with the melodic haze of Nick Cohen pres. Cushity - "La La Li" before establishing a steady beat with Sven Weissemann's "Kiss of Abana". The third track, Pulshar's "Nospheratu (Sven's Sphere Dub)", marks the only appearance of vocals here, but they are so electronically treated they are essentially part of the instrumental flow. Zwuo's "Static Refill" has sinuous synths. Tracks by Naught and Ortzroka bring the mix to a climax that is low-key enough for a first disc, but soaring nonetheless. Howells then descends from this height, but the mix now has a higher energy. A second climax, where one feels that things are starting to fade out in anticipation of disc two, comes with Howell's own track "Right Off (Danny’s Discomix)", which has some delightfully threatening overtones.

Howells also uses another two of his own tracks to form a bridge between the two discs. CD1 ends with "The Shining (Outrodub)", while disc 2 opens with "Laid Out (Introversion)" and "The Shining (Danny's Dynamix)". Now, "The Shining" is a melodic classic, which makes it all the more disappointing that Howells chooses to follow this with Kelley Polar - "Entropy Reigns", good beats but lame vocals. For me the high point of this disc comes early with David Garcet's "Eros", which intertwines repetitive vocal loops from a distant-sounding man ("...it's all the same") and an anguished woman ("I won't stop").

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.

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!!

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.

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.
