Dave Seaman continues to do nothing but impress while making it look so easy in his latest installment from Renaissance label, The Masters Series part 10. Every moment of this cd show exactly who Dave Seaman is, he being one of the fathers of techno/electronic music was there from the beginning and is still here today, living as one of the best. After starting more than 25 years ago, he has done nothing but release hit after hit. If it has Dave Seaman's name on it, I doubt your going in the wrong direction purchasing the album.

The Master's Series Part 10 simply has to be Dave Seaman's most cohesive, polished and inspired double-mix album since, though perhaps a stretch, his groundbreaking opus - The Master's Series Part 1 (2000's Awakening). Given the quality of the aforementioned album, such a bold statement has not been made in haste. The music, however, clearly speaks for itself.

The first disc expands upon the modernized electro-house theory Seaman presented us on the fourth "Therapy Sessions." The tracklist is peppered with exciting new tracks and well-respected artists. Moreover, disc one finally finds Seaman adhering to a purposeful and determinable path; many, including myself, would argue that the first Therapy Sessions disc marked a several-year period of inspirational complacency for Dave. 2005's TS was a rightfully decent mix, though unremarkable - and 2006's TS fared little well amongst Dave Seaman loyalists. The selling point for disc one of the latest Master's series is smooth resilience; a dream made musical. Near-flawless mixing cements together fragments of beautiful and esoteric waves of sound. Seaman is back in control; on tracks such as Fairmeont's "I Need Medicine" and Dusty Kid's "Cowboys," he displays his unique craftsmanship that captures the ear and does not surrender to scrutiny. Seaman signals his triumphant return by bending sounds as though they were elastic bands before segueing into delicious body-wriggling bass. Contemporary selections, including those from Gui Boratto, Wally Lopez, Samim, Sasha, MOS and Underworld, reveals modern electronica's deepest secrets whilst keeping them whisper-quiet. The quality of Dave's composition even fiercely rivals that of the preceding Master's Series - which is itself indeed a masterpiece.

First of all, if you are considering this album and you do not already own Seaman's previous Renaissance Masters album, then click on the link there and buy it. That right there is Seaman at the top of his game -- inventive, brash, risky. It's a breath-taking and euphoric set.

This set finds Seaman avoiding the experimentation and innovation that made his previous Masters album such a rousing success. There's a lot here to like, but at the same time it sounds like a set that will not necessarily age well.

DISC ONE: Seaman starts off meditatively with a few songs that sound like musical gloam. It's a good, simmering mood he mixes up, and by the time "Cowboys," Dusty Kid's mellow offering, jogs onto the line-up it feels like Seaman is prepared to take the listener to a world of high-energy lounge. He changes his mind rapidly, though, and the next two songs completely screw with the aura he's created. Suddenly the songs are blistering with techno-prattle and fidgety electro. I was thrown off, but when Seaman's addictively fun mix of "Mr. Decay" rolled on, I was sold. No more lounge, then; instead a gritty, faux-minimal digital landscape is on the menu. He more or less rides this groove over the next five tracks until the climax of "Escalator," which spirals awkwardly away back into a trancey-lounge. He lost me again.

As many have said, these mix CDs (even any DJ set you'll witness at a concert or club) is meant to be a pastiche, it's meant to tell a story, to guide the listener on a journey. This is why the track selection (think of them as landmarks on a trip) are just as important as the mixing (think of it as the street you're driving on).

It was a nice surprise listening to a mixed electronica album released in 2008 that wasn't from the minimal genre (or dump). I have a feeling I'm not alone in saying this? The last 2 years have been pretty diappointing in regards to my music collection with a slew of weak productions.

Leave it up to Dave Seaman to snub his nose at what is fashionable in the world of electronica and what is not...and fellow fans...in case you were wondering...progressive is not "in" anymore. We are becoming the new generation of electronica left-behinds. Soon we will be similar to the hoards of trance purists that fiercely hold on to ancient but familar sounds. Lucky for them they still have the likes of Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, and Paul Van Dyk who will never evolve/abandon their sound.

Although this album was given very high praise by fellow reviewers, I do not think it is a five star and/or Seaman's best. That honor still remains with his Renaissance Desire album.

Disc 1 shows a lot of early promise with its track selection, tempo, creativity and feel. Unfortunately it doesn't hold for the 66 minutes of the set. There are lulls here and there throughout the set, but most notably near the end. The set becomes very uninteresting for me during "I Am with You" by Sennh and "Who Killed Sparky?" by Sasha. It recovers with the final 2 closing tracks. You can never go wrong rounding out a set with a good remix of an Underworld track!

Disc 2 puts forward a completing different sound than the first. Many more trance overtones. Initially it had me pulled in hard. Again though, through unspiring track selections near the middle and at the end of the set (ie the last 4 tracks), disc 2 quickly loses its power over me. Sorry, just too many average tracks.
