Definitely it's the best mix compilation that Holden has ever done, and in the whole DJ-Kicks series. It's been 5 years since it came out, but I can still listen to it with my highest excitement. The track selection creates such a hypnotizin flow and atmosphere that can't be easily described with words. From start to end it's a constant experimentation, from solid and gentle soundscapes to the highest state of adrenaline and ephoria, ending up with a post-krautrock and harsh noise influenced chaos and upside-down, what totally lefts me astonished for long minutes after listening.

The greatest living man of underground electronic music. Ever.

There are very few DJs who I consider consistent. Holden is one of them.

Fusing together elements of Krautrock, Indie electronic/electronica and Techno, James delivers a mix that will appeal to people of both the experimental rock and electronic contingent. It's hypnotic and entrancing, but god forbid it being associated with any form of post-1996 Trance.

My only gripe with this mix is the last track, which is mastered so fucking loud that I have to actually consciously think about turning it down. An unsuccessful conclusion to an immersive journey, hence my refusal to award it a five-star rating. 4.5/5

This is an amazing mix album by holden, maybe not the veru best of mixing skill but this track selection... Simply amazing.
Get this if you like holden or tech, progressive or even minimal.
