In the last
few years, being a DJ has lost its luster as more and more people
try to be the next John Digweed or Paul Oakenfold. This explosion
in DJ population has been accompanied by an infuse of mix CD's.
Some are basement quality, recorded live and unmastered. Some
are completely done on the computer, mastered to a "T"
and flawless, but almost fake.
So what makes
Louie DeVito's latest mix effort stand appart from the rest? Nothing,
it doesn't. DeVito, accompanied by Bad Boy Joe, compiles a mix
of the satus quo of current chart burners and club movers. While
the mixing doesn't miss a beat (probably due to hours of mastering),
they could have used some more attention in the key matching department.
The mix spans a typical night at the club, starting with some
high energy slections to get everyone going, then some vocal-heavy
tracks to keep the crowd's interest (although the choices are
all similar and almost bore), followed by heavier late-night tracks.
The albums is capped off by a megamix review by Bad Boy Joe.
looking to entertain a house full of partygoers without investing
in a DJ, this CD will tie them over for an hour or so if they
are in the dancing mood. However, the artists featured will be
the selling point of this album, not the man putting them together.
