My first experience with elctronic music was a cassette of Turn up the bass 2. From that moment on I bought nothing but electronic music. First cassettes, later on cd`s and ofcourse 12". Live gigs were like magic to me, even though I had never whitnessed it until I was old enough to visit. At that point, house music already became bigger and bigger. A lot of the magic disappeared. Fortunately there was a really good club nearby me were the best gigs were given. Goa and acid house were the bomb these days. Highlight of that time was a concert by the Acid Junkies. Nowadays, growing older and whitnessing some things happening all over again, I am still looking for that spirit of the good old days. But still, even though everything changes great electronic music is coming out every day.. you just have to look in the right places. Nowadays, I am a big fan of good quality prog/trance, as played by the likes of Markus Schulz, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, etc.

Tracks are almost all classics, however 3 (!) versions of Diving faces is quite overdone on one mix compilation. Even when its a label compilation. I have to disagree with  Stew22 about the mixing. Speed & timing are really off now and then. For example ... See full review

The first two editions in this series featuring are the best. Space age 1 was very refreshing en energetic but Montana's editions could not live up to my expectations.

Great review by Barry_Xwood here, I have nothing to add! Awesome job by Guy J, finally a mixalbum that takes you on a journey instead of putting some tracks together... this is what mixing is all about! Respect! Instant classic.

I agree with the previous review, the tracks are nice but never really suprising or innovative. And indeed..Geert Huinink proves his skills once again! Marc Simz made a solid selection but the mixing is really uninspiring and even made me want to skip ... See full review

I consider this the best episode of the FP-series. A breaktrough in trance music comp`s, being one of the best of that "era". The mixing and timing is excellent, for me it was one of the first times dj Tiesto cought my attention with his attention to ... See full review

This part of the House Party series combined "mellow" and "hardcore" for the second time. Part five only had two songs of hardcore, divided by an intermezzo. On this record there is a very good integration of the two styles present. But it was also the ... See full review
