I give a 2 for this second Tony de Vit Global Underground CD. I think the first is better to be honest (Tel Aviv), but they are pretty much identical in terms of genre and style. Very hard hitting and fast techno or "Nu-Energy" according to some people. The two reasons why it can't get higher than a 3 are: (1) It's too dated. It sounds old, because it is old. (2) It's a dance mix. This isn't something that works in your car or listening to at home, it's only meant for a club and nothing else.

By far my favorite Global Underground compilation mixed by the legend that is Tony De Vit. Not just two separate mixes but a 2 hour session in the original style. This mix really shows how clever hard house can be - not just "hard", but very stylish, diverse and beautiful, in the same way that techno, house, progressive house and other styles do. The progression is very clever and so is track selection. Most tunes are "Trade" style hard house from the key labels including Tripoli Trax, Chug'N'Bump, Shift Recordings and others. Starting from Dave Randall's techy "Bombay" and then building and speeding up, smooth and slowly. With each new tune introduced properly the mix grows in energy, going up 15 bpm in two hours and ending at almost 150! I also admire the mixing technique that is used here, absolutely classic. There's a lot more to say about this mix really, a must have for every hard house fan! 5/5

Really a very unimpressive and unispiring mix considering all the things I had heard about Tony De Vit prior to purchasing this mix. This mix is quite old and shows it age through most of the 2 CD's that it encompasses. The track selection seems particularly poor as there is little variety to the sound that is featured. All of the songs are very hard, "in your face" house tracks that make this set sound incredibley boring. A lot of the vocal samples are so chessey they make me want to hit my head on the wall, easily the weakest GU realese. 1 out of 5.
