Arguably the most famous DJ in the world, circa 1999, and certainly one of the most influential across all fields of music, London mixmaster Paul Oakenfold enjoys his first Global Underground release in America with a two-disc set that goes to the farthest corners of modern dance-club music. Oakenfold (who has remixed and spun for U2 and coproduced the Happy Mondays) obviously has a phenomenal record collection. Using the hues and vibes of Manhattan, Oakenfold weaves together a landmark house set for those who have never heard one. The first disc is smattered with trancey house grooves, with swirls of funk thrown in for good measure, thanks to Solar Stone's "Flood" and an effortless high-energy mix that allows brief recuperative moments before once again taking off à la the segue from Lustral's "Everytime" into Miro's "Paradise." The second disc sees Oakenfold playing around with some spacier jungle flavors, such as Ambrosia's "In Your Arms," before enjoying a breakbeat-fueled journey through Talisman & Hudson's "Leave Planet Earth," then effortlessly easing on into trance-house warmth again with Albion's "Air." New York shows that Oakenfold is certainly one of the smoothest operators behind the decks today. Unfazed by the confusing subgenres of electronica, Oakenfold fondly embraces them all, fashioning sets of rich diversity. As with Global Underground's other releases, this disc is a great starting point for those who wish to dip their feet into club land's musical culture. --Steffan Chirazi

Hey there everyone well here we have what we thought was another new Paul Oakenfold disc. Well sorry to dissapoint you but this has been reissued by the company who bought out the original Global Underground. Most CD's are being printed again...sucks for those of us who hunted down the original copy only to find it reissued. NOTE: In case you are fans of Sasha: Global Underground San Francisco don't buy the new one it is also being reprinted. Now all I should say is this, if you couldn't tell the track listing was the same either you aren't a big enough fan or you just didn't read them.
Anyway I'll say what I said the first time...I don't understand why this disc is so amazing. Yes I am an Oakenfold fan, but I feel he was stronger mixing and spinning GOA (as dead as some think this is, just cuz GOA is older doesnt mean it's not good anymore) Anyway, this is an OK disc. I give it four cuz well Oakie is just plain good and underrated. It is also rumoured that this disc; along with tranceport were spun on three boards. Just as the infamous Carl Cox does. I am getting tired of repetitive trance, with what people claim as overlapping and complexity. That stuff isn't complex; it's dull, unemotional and uncreative (easily programmed and looped like our buddies Trance Control and Paul Van Dyk's new disc) But this is where the review come into play. Oakenfold obviously felt strongly about every track, these songs are somewhat "epic." This is a style of trance that I don't believe is exercised enough. It is similiar to GOA, but not quite as ethnic sounding. And well this is a hard style to attain through the "underground" sound that most new york still has. Oakenfold seemed to accomplish this though. His mixing is nice, subtle, yet refined.

This is probably the most sophisticated, well-mixed Oakenfold CD available, with "Resident at Cream" a close, more-anthemic second (I have high hopes for the upcoming "Perfecto Presents Another World") . Half the reason I'm writing this review is to jack up the star rating on this CD, which, as of this writing, was a mere 3/12 stars, largely because of two jokers who already had the same CDs under a different Global Underground release ( GU 2, I think) and gave it 1 star out of bitterness that they spent good money twice (I sympathize). Memo: In this great era of repackaging, check tracks BEFORE you purchase. But really people, don't spoil it for the rest of us, as I am sure you agree, this is some of the smoothest, low-key and melodic trance there is. Oakie's "Tranceport" is much more driving and anthemic (some would say cheesy), if you like that sort of thing (and I do), but this is much more refined, softer trance but with enough drive to keep your feet tapping if you aren't a yodel. It is also suitable for dinner parties, a way to expose trance to friends who don't know about this vital genre without beating them over the head with it (more than a few of my friends have been very grateful). I personally like both of his styles, as well as some of the darker harder trance of Nick Warren (see GU: Budapest) and Dave Seaman ( see GU: Buenos Aires). There are also a few drum-and-base oriented tracks, notably the first 2 on the second CD, "Inside Your Arms" and "Leave Planet Earth." Even if you hate d n'b, still get this essential CD and skip those 2 tracks, but keep an open mind. This is warm, classy d n'b, and I find most of the genre pretty cold (Grooverider, Spring Heel Jack come to mind).Read more ›

Anyone interested in seeing what the whole craze about Paul Oakenfold is about pick this CD up. In particular listen to tracks 8-12 on CD2: its an amazing ride journey. Summersault (now becoming a favorite in clubs), Bliss, and Rescue Me are very nice songs on CD1. Greece 2000 is I think overplayed, and probably should not have been on this album. CD2 however really is great! And I dont know quite how to explain this but I was listening to CD2 as I was driving into New York City recently and it really does seem to capture a lot of what New York means to a lot of people. An excellent double CD! Get it! Id say this CD is even better than Oakie's Cream CD, but at half the price, a much more economical pic! JUST BUY THIS CD AND THANK ME LATER!!!!!
peace

I bought this CD on a whim one day having no clue about what trance was or who Oakie was. I was lucky that day!
This set is amazing. Ever since it turned me on to the trance world, I have found no other album that equaled its mastery and skillfullness (except for sasha/digweed northern exposure stuff). The tracks are not just boring house beats with some neat sounding climaxes. These tracks are intricately and seamlessly layered pieces of sound that evoke emotion. If you simply appreciate quality electronic music or you are a trance fan, your collection is incomplete w/out this wonderful two disc masterpiece.

If you dig the way trance just gets into your blood, then this set is a great purchase. I have been listening to this disc set constantly for over a year, yet I never tire of it. Oakenfold artfully layers solid grooves and great effects in tracks that pull you into the music and make you want to dance. The transitions are great, building different moods and inspiring you to play the whole CD. Paul Oakenfold is, by far, my favorite DJ. I appreciate all genre of music, but this one consistently makes it to the top of my favorites pile. Great for clubbing; I also love to listen as I exercise. It is a truly welcome addition to any collection.
