Ian Pooley shows off his more dance-oriented side with this collection of THE ALLNIGHTER & CALYPSO EPs off NRK Sound Division. "Gimme Sound" and “In the Bins” start off pretty straightforward, but “Gimme Sound” thankfully shifts into a new dimension 1/3 of the way through with some synth pads. "The Allnighter" starts the disco guitars right away, and you can almost see the strobelights flickering in the background. The Brazillian-tinged percussion on "Calypso Theme" fits the title perfectly, especially once the melody kicks in. Slam, as always, delivers a quality mix, this time smoothing out the edges of "The Allnighter," while Junior O mix isn’t as transformative as I would have liked. Dave Angel’s take on “Gimme Sound” is similarly disappointing, but we can at least rely on Ian Pooley to provide great dancefloor fodder.
