An absolute classic house/tech-house compilation from Slam. This really has stood the test of time, it blew me away when I first heard it and it has a timeless quality when I listen to it now.
CD1 starts very deep house and builds into more funky, energetic tracks and peaks with the instrumental of Silicon Soul's 'Right On, Right On' and gets percussive towards the end.
CD2. starts with Buchwacka's amazing 'Healer' which is one of my all time classic fave house tracks and keeps building in energy and intensity. It gets more heavier and tech-house and end ups with techno and peaks with an uplifting finish of Slam's Remix of their own 'Positive Education' and UR boss Mad Mike's strings version of 'Jaguar'.

I have loved slam since discovering them in 1994 with 'Eterna' and 'Positive Education' and they are the masters of bridging all forms of house and techno together. Long may they reign.

This showcases Slams very high standard of mixing as reflected in their DJ sets at Fabric; the momentum builds gradually, the mood changes subtley while maintaining a high degree of energy and interest. Disc 1 is generally more deep house, while the 2nd disc moves more into percussive techno. In my opinion, disc 1 stands out as a real classic, while the 2nd is not so memorable. Stand out tracks for me are (all on disc 1) Wambonix - Scattered Dreams, Ron Trent - I Feel The Rhythm & Chez Damier - Close (Derrick Carter Remix)
