Perhaps the best introduction to techno and djaying. The five mixes are incredible (detroit mix is legendary) and shows LG is not only a techno DJ.

For anyone who wants to hear what the true definition of a dj should be, one should listen to this collection. As is his custom, Laurent takes you on a musical voyage, this time spanning three cds (five if you have the ltd edition 2 disc set that you can only get through the FComm label). Featuring incredible techno, proper acid house and deep soulful and emotional downtempo beats; Laurent takes mixed compilations to another level, showing why he is one of the best in the world.
A cool sidebar feature to his Detroit mix in the three disc set, is soundbites of the environment (airport intercoms, club announcements, human interaction and club announcements) as well as soundbytes coming from, (if I'm not mistaken) a very well known yet low key Detroit producer who likes to lurk below the radar. Can't wait to see what his next mixed compilation will be like, I just hope I don't have to wait as long for it to come out.

One of the reasons i like techno DJ's is because (some of the time) they do not confine themselves to a certian sound, unlike other dance genre DJ's. Listening to all 5 of the cd's on this Excess Luggage mix pack proves this point. Laurent dares mix in detroit, blues, arabic world music, house, chicago and soundtrack. In fact Laurent has often said that he isn't really a techno DJ at all, but a DJ who simply plays good music. The PBB mix of this set is for after hours only, and may seem a bit flat and tame for those expecting techno as most of it is blues and off beat soundtracks and stuff, but highlights like Claude Chalhoub help broadminded people like me constantly discover new types of music that i would never have looked into before, and thats why this mix pack is both important and almost ground breaking.
