Album Review

Far from the sunny climes of Ibiza or Ayia Napa — in fact, well beyond the northernmost point ever reached by the Global Underground series — lies Reykjavik, Iceland, a musical hotspot thanks to Sigur Rós and Múm (plus, of course, founding mother Björk). Hardly a clubbing mecca, but it is the perfect stage for a chill-out album. Mixer Nick Warren's fifth time heading a GU mix is dark like his 2000 edition from Amsterdam, but instead of mid-tempo trance it's down-tempo chill, much closer in execution to his superb 1999 volume in the Back to Mine series. The Global Underground label had hopped on the chill-out bandwagon during 2002 with Steve Lawler's Lights Out and Global Underground: Afterhours, but trendiness aside, Warren is a brilliant downbeat DJ with taste that stretches from the latest underground favorites (like Morr Music) back to the heady days of ambient house. It begins oddly, though, failing to hook listeners with the bland "Dub in Time" (by Avatar) and the surprisingly clunky "Firewire" (by Substructure). Warren recovers quickly, spinning tracks from two of downbeat's best practitioners: Ulrich Schnauss (the wistful "Nobody's Home") and the justly praised Boards of Canada ("Happy Cycling"). The first disc peaks later on, with the sublime ambient bliss of Global Communication's 1994 nugget "14:31." The second disc doesn't reach the heights of the first, leaving only a pair of highlights: Rambient's "Karma" and the closer, Fluke's "Bullet."

THE BEST YET

Nick Warren has grown over the years to become the backbone of the GU city series, his last 8 albums for the label consistently delivering seamless unserving quality. GU35 is no different, infact its only departure from its predecessors legacy is a sharp turn towards higher excellence. Any fan of Global Underground, Nick Warren, modern Progressive, or simply outstanding underground music should invest in this outstanding album. 5 out of 5 without a doubt.

Disappointing

Let's get one thing straight here, Nick Warren is a top drawer club DJ and a nice guy to boot. I've seen him many times and he's always rocked it. However, in line with the myriad other mix CD's by big name prog jocks this mix is blighted by dull as dishwater tunes that last too long and go nowhere. Unfortunately this is a missed opportunity for Nick Warren with his production skills to put together something that people will still listen to in years to come. In reality you probably won't be listening to this in a month which is a shame. GU need to seriously rethink this series and move away from the identikit prog mixes which are being continually churned out, if you think back to Digweed Sydney ( a classic and ahead of it's time mix) can you honestly say things have moved on??

Track 7 Cassini

The album is worth buyng just for track 7 alone, (Cassini by Glide), an incredible piece very hypnotic, creating tension by using layers of sound, very accomplished and reminiscent of vintage Vangelis.Magic.

Biography

Born: Bristol, Avon, England

Genre: Dance

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Nick Warren became one of the first so-called "superstar DJs" in the mid- to late '90s, holding down a high-profile residency at Cream in England, touring around the world, and appearing on several DJ mix albums before they became commonplace. Though he spun an eclectic array of dance styles in the late '80s and early '90s, he eventually championed the late-'90s trance sound of labels like Hooj Choons and joined the ranks of other superstar DJs like Paul Oakenfold, Sasha, and Tall Paul.
