This is the worst mix I've ever heard by a famous techno producer. He uses DJ mixer effects in an attempt to cover up his lack of mixing skills. I don't know if he has gotten better since then, but this one here is pretty darn bad. Unless if your a die hard Carl Craig fan, I'd say stay away. The other CDs in this series aren't as bad, the Stacy Pullen one is top notch.

The underlying problem with this compilation is that there are way too many sounds and moods being bundled together. The tracks themselves are groovy, funky, and energetic, but they don't really fit together. At times it tries to get too cute and crazy and this ultimately doesn't work out too well.

This is a mix CD with a rather interesting twist - none of the tunes are actually mixed at all, instaed Carl Craig focuses on studio magic to give one long constant stream of supurb house and techno form across europe and America, with a particular emphasis on the unmistakable dutch house sound. Some of his tricks include major filtering of tune, kill switches, autopan, delay and live editing of the tunes. The vinyl is of fantastic quality, full of variety (no boring beats after beats tunes. At the end you are treated to a tune called "DJ Kicks, the track", which is Carl Craigs remix of every single tune on the CD, he takes a bit of each here and there to make a brand new track. If you are into long mixes etc, this might not be your cup of tea, but if you are open inded enough to experience a new form of "Mixing", you'll love it. 8/10.
