Danny Howells is still probably a very underground name although he has spun with Sasha and Digweed on their Northern Exposure UK tour. The tracks on this cd have been intricately mixed and although it is a 1999 release, your speakers will fill your ears with a sound that screams "squeaky clean and studio fresh!" If you're looking for trance cheese don't look here! What you'll get is a rolling suite of climaxes interspersed with groovy basslines and groundbashing beats. The set never lets up! Danny starts calm and collected with The Creatures' Disconnected and then slowly picks up the pace until Science Dept.'s Persuasion which is a more vicious mix than on Digweed's Hong Kong Global Underground set. Two different mixes of Jark Prongo's Shake It are spun in back to back and the effects are amazing. Howells definitely knows how to transition between house and jungle with a smooth hand. This said, our dj inflates the decks with a very wild and demented mix of Cevin Fisher's Music Saved My Life which is thickly layered with flanges and bullyish beats! The set is finally cooled by a melodic breeze of trance in the form of Excession's Skien and X-Cabs Infectious '99 which brings it to a tight, confident close. This cd is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your next party. Danny effortlessly drives your mind through a complex labyrinth of grooves and transitions.

The progressive house DJ Danny Howells was performing widely in clubs throughout the 1990s, but only around the turn of the millennium did he start to release mix CDs. NOCTURNAL FREQUENCIES from 1999 was his first major one.

This is a single-DJ mix. It represents pretty well the scene of the time with producers like Casselle & Christopher, Phaser, Howells' own project Science Dept., Jark Prongo and Evolution. While not as bleak as the sound John Digweed turned to in 2000, Howells still programmed (and, with Science Dept's "Persuasion", produced) much darker music than other prog DJs who hadn't yet left trance fare behind. The set climaxes with Cevin Fisher's "Music Saved My Life" in Pete Heller's Groovejet remix, and then a couple of tracks later Howells ends things with X-Cabs's "Infectious '99 (Evolution Mix)".

Unfortunately, this mix doesn't quite rise to the level of Howell's Nubreed 002 mix of the next year. It sounds like a warm-up for somebody else's much vaster set -- note how the set ends with an upbeat vocal track and doesn't fade out -- and indeed Howells was mainly a warmup DJ at this time. If you are going back through the years to search out progressive house mixes that have been unfairly neglected, this is not one of them, as much as Howells has done fine work elsewhere.

This album is ill!!! It starts of slow and deep and gradually gets harder and deeper. Danny Howells crafted this album and developed it into one of the most serious albums of our time. No collection is complete without it. The methodic beating of the drum will be ringing in your ears long after you listen to this.

Going backwards through Danny Howells' catalog, after an excellent Global Underground: Nu Breed release and an equally as sharp Nocturnal Frequencies 2 from early-2000, leads us to this, his only other available mix (not including a few record label compilations).
Given only one disc to work with he leaps into it fairly quickly - baring a brief intro - with "Disconnected," a stirring piece filled with wistful strings and fractured melody. Don't expect the trademark slow, languid builds, the beats are kept up and energy flowing, many of the fifteen tracks lasting an atypical (for trance) four or five minutes.
Amusingly enough, his own "Persuasion" (as Science Department) is one of the peak spots; with recent and more popular remixes littering other discs, it's a treat to hear the spicy original. The dark and moody Howells finally appears on the backside with "Cirque" and the enchanting "Lovelife" by Kid Scientific.
So while his sound here hadn't quite evolved into the rich and deep trance of later works, there's enough here to please fans willing to import. Grade: B
