The electro mix is banging... It is eclectic and perfectly mixed. It was well ahead of it's time. Electro and electro/house/clash became mainstream well after this. This is a pivotal mix.



March 8, 2009

There's a good reason why [DC]'s first installment of "World service" became as known and globally venerated as it did. By 2001 he was one of the most sought after DJs in the field of techno/electro, with his gigs getting regularly packed to maximum capacity. For all those who have not been able to attend one of his monumantal live performances, this double disc gives a fantastic glimpse at what it was all about!
The first disc, techno mix, draws in the finest techno from both, the american and the european continent, with tracks from legendary acts such as Umek, Joey Beltram, Jeff Mills, G. Parisio, and James Ruskin. He throws in some ghetto tek, ass shakin' tunes courtesy of DJ Urban, Aaron Carl and Artefact for some good measure as well. Patiently building with the initial three tracks, during which Dave does not reveal his full mixing potential, it's only with Alessandro F's Car Crash that the mix lifts off sky high - and from then on you've got it all - taking Detroit techno, voice ornamented electro techno, minimal, glitchy, cerebral, funky, dark and rainy Birmingham brand of techno, all of which is topped off with Dave Clarke's tongue in cheek mixing technique.
As for the electro CD, I guess I lack competent knowledge of, and sufficient interest in the genre, so all I can tell you is that it moves along nicely, with cyber influences and robotic voice samples combined with old school melodies. Overall, nice, but an electro head could tell you a lil more about it, I suppose. I like how Dave Clarke combines both, electro and techno in his live sets, but I just don't feel the genre enough to enjoy a 60 minute plus journey of straight up electro. Fair and honest statement. For what my experience with this mix may be worth, the Fisherspooner tune called Emerge is amazing. Really likeable.
Needless to explain why, the techno mix is a safe and sound 4/5, but on a good day, even the inclusion of ghettoish techno tunes, which I am usually not that fond of, doesn't prevent me from gracing it with a 5/5!

Quite simply, the best techno mix CD I've heard to date. I'd love to get a hold of that unknown track that's later on in the mix. For me, only Cajmere's Techno Funk comes close to this.

Initially, I wasn't too into the electro CD, but the more you listen to it the better it gets, and it's arguably better than the techno mix. Indeed it contains, in my opinion, the best track over the two CD's in the Dima remix of Fadin Away by the Hacker.

Initially some pretty determined negative comments about the electro CD above. I'll tell you, I couldn't stand it when I first heard it. This was my introduction to electro and, following the Techno disc, was not a welcome introduction. Three listens later, however, and I was sold.

Fischerspooner is, of course, incredible; get #1. I already listen to way too much Radiohead, but I've enjoyed the introduction to Adult., among others.

The techno mix is nice and meaty.

5/5 all the way.

Dave Clarke's first mix album since Fuse is split into two sets — the first a minimal mix of pounding Detroit techno with plenty of changes to keep listeners interested, the second an incredible electro set that cycles through new-school addicts as well as several left-field choices. The first disc begins with Detroit-styled tracks from Technasia, Stacey Pullen's Black Odyssey, and Gaetano Parisio before reaching a new level with a dazzling three-track trip through minimal territory: Marco Bailey, Joey Beltram, and Jeff Mills. After spinning some great booty techno from Aaron Carl and DJ Urban, Clarke moves into experimental and techno-funk with Surgeon, Umek, and James Ruskin. The second disc includes tracks from most of the best neo-electro heads (Anthony Rother, Adult, Japanese Telecom, Mr. Velcro Fastener), plus excellent additions by Tuxedomoon and Radiohead, a pair of bands few DJs would've dropped into an electro set.

This is by far the most amazing mixed compilation that i've had in my hands. The techno mix is amazing but when I listen to the electro one i become... speechless! "World service" is a must-have for any clubber out there. What are you waiting for? BUY IT!

I was definately suprised when I heard 'Idioteque' on this electro cd, I was not all that familiar with Radiohead at this time. and I was suprised when I found out it was them that produced that track. Because it is really electro sounding, just listen to it carefully. It definately fits into the set though.

For those who have actaully taken the comments bad mouthing the electro mix into consideration, forget what they have said and give it a listen for your self. In my opinion it's one of the new school electro mixes I have heard. Blows me away every time :)

This is an excellent CD set, the Techno CD is very stompy, if you like Jeff Mills style you'll dig this.

I don't think the Electro CD deserves the negative comments its getting, I think its quite good, but bear in mind that this particular flavour of electro is quite "bleepy" and not so much the classic Dynamix style electro that most people are used to. If you like "Dopplereffekt" style tracks then this will appeal to you. Besides, anything with Anthony Rother has got to be good.

I feel that CD 1 is more dance oriented and CD 2 is more listener oriented, and I enjoy them both immensely.

the electro cd is fucked up. I dont really like electro, but I have heard better electro than this crap. the techno mix of other disc is just great. I have seen him spinning in my country holland and its is about the same style on this cd. his fingerwork is sublime. ha. I dont like him as an artist though. nowadays he plays more electro than techno. but he is one of the best djz I know.
