VA - Triple Vision Showcase (Triple Vision / KMag)

Hats off to a good friend from Austin, Underfoot, who urged me to pick up the last issue (December 2007) of UK's Knowledge Magazine [which still dusted the stale newsstands at my local bookshop], because of its free included mix. This smoothly flowing upbeat drum and bass compilation was put together by Rotterdam's Triple Vision founder Marco Grijsen (DJ Dreazz). The disk features 26 tracks and remixes from Loxy, Lynx, Noisia, Lomax and Corrupt Souls, just to name a few. Appropriately titled, it's a showcase of Triple Vision's staple labels - Citrus, Celsius, Fokuz and Disturbd. Skillfully led from light to confident to dark and back, this is the first mix in a couple of years that has already showed up half a dozen times on my rotations. I may be bold enough and proclaim every track on the CD a winner. I am immediately overtaken by that "never enough" feeling, and start salivating for the the latest in drum'n'bass releases, as available from Triple Vision's online store. So pick up the disk if you can still find it; it is well worth the $14 import tag, plus you get a free magazine attached to it! |
