CD1 is paced to absolute perfection. If you know the original versions of these records you can easily hear how Sasha and his engineer broke them down into individual samples which they then layered into the mix so that elements of each tune meld endlessly into the next one, sometimes reoccurring minutes after the transition has supposedly finished.
Elsewhere, tunes are edited and reconstructed and filters and additional FX loop over tracks to add yet more subliminal ear candy to the mix. At a time when digitally mixed CDs were becoming commonplace on the market not least in the GU series Sasha took the practise to another level. CD2, as has been noted elsewhere, is all about the hits.
As a result I struggle somewhat, and I find myself putting this disc on less often than the first. In the age-old debate about which is the superior Sasha effort for this label - San Francisco or Ibiza - I find myself torn. San Fran is more consistently excellent across both discs, but neither one of them is as perfect as CD1 here. Reply Notify me 3 Helpful. What an album! Essential Timeless Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.

One of my good friends is currently touring all over the world and I can only imagine having hundreds of people vibing along to your music selection Best of luck going forward. I used to be in a band too, but no one I know really playing anymore. So, my current hobby is simply video games and movies.
Thanks for posting. Big fan of techno as well but prefer the heavier, berghain style sound. What are your thoughts on the negative connotations tied to the scene? People who aren't into the music seem to generalize so I often avoid the topic altogether. That description of buzzing after your first big gig is just spot on. Had the same experience a couple of years ago when i started out DJ'ing. Thanks for reminding us to also have some fun!
Metal is my hobby, as a lot of us know from Head of Metal I guess next step would be joining a band? WSO depends on everyone being able to pitch in when they know something. Join Us.
